As the awareness of non-surgical treatments sees a rise our Senior consultant, Maelle at Percy Street answers the most common questions discussed during a CoolSculpting (fat-freezing) consultations to help clients that are looking to reduce back fat.
Does Coolsculpting hurt?
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment which requires no downtime. You can easily come in during your lunch break and continue with your daily activities.
You might experience slight discomfort from the cooling sensation during the first 5-10 minutes and during the massage at the end of the treatment.
Is CoolSculpting (fat-freezing) permanent?
Yes, CoolSculpting is a permanent solution to get rid of stubborn fat cells. The fat cells are crystallised and frozen through CoolSculpting treatment, they are destroyed naturally and gone forever!
Does CoolSculpting get rid of back fat?
Back fat can be a problematic area for many clients trying different ways to eliminate their back fat. CoolSculpting can help to reduce back fat that shows up as underarm fat, lower back fat or often known as “bra bulge”. The treatment results often help clients fat disappear and increase levels of confidence.
How much weight can you lose with fat freezing?
CoolSculpting treatment should not be confused with weight loss, the treatment can improve your shape. CoolSculpting will naturally help reduce fat up to 20-35% in the treatment area to make it appear as though you’ve lost a few pounds. The fat cells are permanently destroyed which means the same fat cells cannot return or enlarge with weight gain.
Who is a good candidate for CoolSculpting?
The ideal candidate for fat reduction with CoolSculpting treatment is a client within a stone of their ideal or normal body weight. The client must have enough pinch able fat in order to fit into the applicator.
We use different sizes of applicators from petite to large depending on the size of the fat and the area of the body. We also cater to clients 6 months post liposuction to even out bad surgical procedures leaving pockets of unwanted fat.
At Pulse Light Clinic we have an in-house doctor and nurse that will be there to assist you if you would need medical consultation before commencing CoolSculpting treatment. Most clients are suitable for CoolSculpting, however, breastfeeding or pregnant clients are not suitable and your medical history will be discussed at your consultation.
