What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fat freezing procedure, completely non-invasive and it is the fat reduction alternative to liposuction. It eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, with little to no down time.
Dr Shah uses CoolSculpting by Zeltiq, the only FDA approved fat freezing treatment. With CoolSculpting, we can target and eliminate body fat that is resistant to diet and exercise. It is the best treatment for dealing with hard to break down fat cells, without pain or surgery.
As a non-invasive procedure, CoolSculpting allows you to return to normal activities straight-away, after treatment.
What is Cryolipolysis?
Fat freezing treatments have developed over a number of years. As a result, you may have heard of cryolipolisis (cryo lipo) or cryongenic lipolysis, all of which are former names for CoolSculpting.
Following the popularity of liposuction, the non-invasive lipo freeze technique using the Zeltiq CoolSculpting System rose to prominence. Since then it has only increased in popularity as a fat freezing treatment.
How fat freezing works
Fat freezing with the CoolSculpting System involves applying the device to your problem areas, typically “love handles”, thighs and other places where small pockets of fat may be found.
The CoolSculpting technology will safely deliver precisely controlled cooling to gently freeze the fat cells underneath the skin. As fat cells are more susceptible to changes in temperature than your skin, fat freezing can occur without causing damage to the skin cells.
The treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), and over time you body will naturally process the fat. Through fat freezing, you body is able to eliminate the unwanted fat cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Before & after *
Am I suitable for CoolSculpting treatment?
Fat freezing is most effective over multiple sessions. In order to understand your goals and what fat freezing can do for you, our expert aesthetician will assess your suitability for the treatment.
If you are a suitable candidate, they will address your problem areas with a clear, customised treatment plan. Only after assessment will they be able to give you the best idea of how many fat freezing sessions you will need to achieve your desired results.
CoolSculpting is designed for small pockets of stubborn fat that resist diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese.
Are there any side effects?
During the fat freezing procedure you may experience a slight pulling sensation and numbness. Following CoolSculpting, typical side effects may include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising and tingling.
Results in as little as 3 weeks
The speed and effectiveness of CoolSculpting will be affected by your goals and your individual body. However, patients may see the results of the fat freezing in as little as three weeks, with the best sculp results seen after two months.
This fat freezing procedure will continue to work after your last CoolSculpting treatment as your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
How much does Coolsculpting cost?
CoolSculpting starts from £400, as each treatment plan is unique. The price for the CoolSculpting procedure can vary and it will be determined by:
- your areas of concern
- the number of sessions needed
- and your ultimate goals
We will help create a customised treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
