CoolSculpting is a simple, easy and natural alternative to liposuction which can eliminate stubborn fat from your body without the needles, surgery, lasers or downtime.
While diet and exercise can reduce the size of the fat cells in your body, it cannot eliminate them; CoolSculpting can. This clinically proven and patented process works by freezing and then eliminating stubborn fat cells from your body without causing any damage to your skin. After the treatment the crystallised fat cells break down and will then be naturally eliminated from your body over the coming weeks.
Prior to your treatment, we will undertake a full body analysis, and provide you with a personalised treatment plan based on your unique circumstances and desired outcomes. During the treatment a device is positioned on your body and the cooling is applied. You are free to read, check your emails, or even enjoy a cat nap while you undergo treatment, and it’s so non-invasive that you should find you are able to return to work and normal activities immediately.
What is Coolsculpting?
Coolsculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction fat-freezing procedure that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that can’t be removed through diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and kill stubborn fat cells in a process known as cryolipolysis. In the weeks following your treatment, your body will naturally process the collapsed fat cells and eliminate them naturally. As the fat cells eliminated by CoolSculpting are gone for good, it provides long-term results.
The groundbreaking treatment was founded by Harvard Scientists who noticed some children who ate ice blocks got dimples in their cheeks. This led the research to find that the ice blocks were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat. And thus, the Cryolipolysis, which the Coolsculpting procedure is based, was born.

Cool sculpting, also known as cryolipolysis or ‘fat freezing’ is a non-invasive, non-surgical medical procedure that helps to remove pockets of extra adipose cells (fat cells) from beneath your skin.
Cool sculpting involves cooling fat to freezing temperature to sculpt your body and remove unwanted fat cells. It helps in removing small amounts of extra fat that are resistant to your other efforts to lose weight such as food restriction and exercise. Cool sculpting is however not a treatment for obesity, but is a procedure to help previously obese people achieve a contoured body.
Various studies have shown Cool sculpting to be one of the most effective non-invasive fat reduction procedure.
Am I suitable for CoolSculpting?
A good patient is normally between five and 15 kilograms over their ideal weight, and has stubborn pockets of fat which they have been unable to shift through exercise and diet.
That said, it is also suitable for very fit people whose bodies naturally have a tendency to store fat in one area such as the lower abdomen, or ‘love handles’.
CoolSculpting is suitable for both men and women.
Cool sculpting may be the procedure for you if:
- You are looking to getting rid of stubborn areas of fat in your body.
- You want to get rid of excess fat but do not want to undergo surgery for it.
- You are in a healthy weight range, and are looking only to get rid of stubborn fat; not as a treatment for obesity.
- Conventional methods of getting rid of fats like exercising and diet control have not been able to reduce extra fat.
Book a consultation today if you are any of the candidates mentioned above for the procedure.
What are the Benefits of CoolSculpting?
- It is a totally non-invasive procedure, so you will neither need to be anaesthetised, nor will you need a single incision be made on your body.
- It has no associated downtime, meaning that you are good to continue with your daily activities immediately after the surgery.
- The results after cool sculpting are natural and permanent. Once cool sculpting kills your fat cells, they do not come back.
- Gets rid of stubborn fat which exercising and dieting didn’t help you to lose.
You should discuss your conditions and the benefits of undergoing cool sculpting before going through with the procedure to see if the procedure is the correct fit for you.
