WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE?
Coolsculpting® is a non-surgical treatment that eliminates excess fat through the use of ‘cryolipolysis’ – in other words, extreme cold. . It is designed to refine your body shape and tackle stubborn areas of localised fat – particularly on the stomach, flanks, thighs, love handles and triceps – and can also be applied to double-chins and ‘banana rolls’ (the area beneath the bottom).
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissues – and CoolSculpting® technology takes advantage of this. Once the desired treatment area has been located, the Coolsculpting® device is carefully positioned on the body and precisely-controlled cooling is applied. This cooling targets the fat cells underneath the skin, without affecting or damaging the skin itself.
This process causes the fat cells to crystallise (freeze) and die, before being eliminated through the lymphatic system over the following months. And once they’re gone, they’re gone for good!
WHO IS IT FOR?
CoolSculpting® in London is a popular non-surgical option for clients who would like to enhance their body shape. If you are looking to get rid of areas of localised fat – which are resistant to diet and exercise – or would just like to feel better in your clothes, fat-freezing could be the solution.
It is important to note, Coolsculpting® is not intended for people who are clinically overweight. It isn’t a weight-loss tool and the ideal candidate should be very close to their ‘ideal’ weight (i.e. within 20-30 pounds). The procedure permanently destroys fat cells, but it cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells – therefore you must also be dedicated to an ongoing active and healthy lifestyle.
Coolsculpting® is also unsuitable for people with cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. Any existing health conditions should be discussed in your first consultation.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, Coolsculpting® in London is very safe. In fact, it is one of the safest, most effective fat reduction procedures currently on the market. It is fully approved for use on the abdomen, thighs, flanks and upper arms, and has been backed by countless clinical and scientific studies.
Our practitioners have earned the much-coveted training degree provided by CoolSculpting University, enabling us to offer clients the highest standard of professional care.
IS IT PAINFUL?
During the procedure, you may feel a little discomfort – such as a pulling, pinching or numb sensation on the targeted area. You may also experience a cold sensation. However, these feelings soon fade, and most people find it possible to relax (or even take a nap) during the treatment.
WHAT IS THE DOWNTIME?
As a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, the side effects associated with CoolSculpting® are relatively mild. You may experience redness, swelling, bruising, skin sensitivity and a slight aching sensation at the treatment site; however, these symptoms are temporary and will quickly fade.
There’s very little downtime and most clients return to normal activities immediately afterwards. You could have Coolsculpting® in London in the morning and head back to work for the afternoon.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
The exact number of Coolsculpting® sessions that you require will depend on three factors: the target body area, your individual requirements and your own personal goals.
Most people start to see an improvement approximately 3 weeks following their first Coolsculpting® session, with the most dramatic results typically seen at 3 months. However, the effects are gradual and can continue for up to 6 months. A healthy diet and exercise regime is recommended following the procedure to maintain the effects.
