CoolSculpting & Cool Mini Non-surgical liposuction
Our fat cells are laid down at birth and puberty, in a distribution that is usually similar to our parents: Some people have slim legs and even when they put on weight it goes straight to their abdomen not their legs. Other people tend to put weight on in the love handle area. These stubborn areas of fat are notoriously difficult to get rid of even with a considerable amount of exercise and strict diets. Often it requires you to lose too much weight and it comes off your face as well giving a gaunt look. This is where the saying ” It’s either my face or my bum”, comes from.
How CoolSculpting was developed
Developed by Harvard scientists, the unique, patented, clinically proven procedure involves freezing fat cells without damage to any other cells. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure designed to target and permanently remove those stubborn fat cells from areas of your body.
A suction pad is applied to the area and it draws up the fat and skin between two metal plates that then extracts the heat from the body. Our new updated applicators lower the temperature by a further 1°C to get even better results, with treatments now taking just 30 – 45 mins per area (instead of 1 hour). At the end of the treatment the pad is removed and the frozen area massaged. The fat cells die due to the freezing and are then permanently and naturally eliminated from the body over a 3 month period.
CoolSculpting vs. other non-surgical liposuction treatments
There are many, many non-surgical treatments on the market, often at seemingly low prices. CoolSculpting differs because:
- It is permanent and actually removes the fat cells
- Other treatments just help reduce the fat within the cells so a weight increase will not give you permanent results
- One single treatment will give results
- It is not dependent on exercise or diet
- The safety profile of the equipment is second to none.
Comparison to Liposuction
Many clients who have had liposuction cannot believe how easy and painless CoolSculpting is in comparison to a surgical liposuction. There is little to no downtime, minimal side effects and the cost is considerably less. The privacy element is always of concern and because there are no garments to wear after the treatment and minimal discomfort nobody need know.
Which areas can be treated with CoolSculpting?
We can treat double chins with the new Cool-Mini applicator. This treatment takes just 45 minutes.
|Applicators||Tummy||Love Handles||Bingo Wings||Bra Straps||Saddle Bags||Inner Thighs||Inner Knees||Above Knees||Chin|
Downtime with CoolSculpting
There is little to no downtime and we do not advise booking days off work. Sometimes there is bruising and swelling of the area but this subsides quickly. If there is pain afterwards it is usually relieved by taking Paracetamol but very rarely prescription medication may be required.
Aftercare required with CoolSculpting
No anti-inflammatory tablets such as ibuprofen should be taken for at least a week after a treatment
Drinking lots of water and eating sensibly, including lots of fresh foods, fish and lean meat will help your body focus on repairing and removing the fat cells.
You can start to see the results from as early as 1 month with the final result being at 3 months.
The new Cool-Mini For double chins and smaller areas of the body: We learn to stand and hold our heads to give our most flattering profile but catching a glimpse of ourself in the mirror can be less than pleasing. We have had such success with CoolSculpting on the body, abdomen, bingo wings, love handles etc that we have been looking into and trialling the Cool-Mini, the newest addition to the Coolsculpting family.
The Cool-Mini has been designed to drop the temperature by 1 degree more than standard CoolSculpting,so a treatment takes just 45 minutes. The Cool-Mini fits snuggly over your double chin as well as those annoying areas that the previous CoolSculpting attachments just couldn’t. This means we can now, as well as tackling your double chin, we can address fat over the knees and inner knee area, front and back bra strap areas and many other smaller areas. As with other CoolSculpting treatments there will be some discomfort after the treatment but rarely is there any bruising so no time is recommended off work.
The results start from about 1 month, with full results at 3- 4 months.
