How Coolsculpting Fat Freezing Works

Remove your unwanted fat cells with a tailored non-surgical procedure with our highest levelled trained CoolSculpting practitioners.

CoolSculpting is a great alternative to liposuction, with a non-surgical approach with no downtime needed. This treatment does not require any anaesthetic, time off work, no garment post-treatment or weekly massages like liposuction.

CoolSculpting | Fat Removal has no risk of infection as it is a non-invasive fat reduction procedure. Unlike other fat freezing/laser fat removal techniques, there is no need for diet and exercise as the fat cell walls are permanently destroyed.

Fat cells are something that most of us have to deal with on a regular basis, even with a good diet and healthy exercise regime certain fat cells just don’t seem to budge. Losing belly fat, back fat or even a double chin can at times feel out of reach.

CoolSculpting allows the fat to be frozen away through Cryoliposis and gets disposed of out of our body’s natural digestive process (through your pee). CoolSculpting uses this revolutionary discovery in a safe, effective and FDA approved way.

What to expect at your Coolsculpting consultation?

At your free consultation, the senior technician will assess the areas you are trying to treat and check your eligibility for the treatment by assessing the amount of pinchable fat you hold on the stubborn fat areas.

The senior technician will go over the recommended treatment/ number of applicators you require to get your desired results on your chosen body area for your CoolSculpting | Fat Freezing Treatment by taking account of your preferences for treatment and tailor this to your free treatment plan. At Pulse Light Clinic, we offer same day treatment as your consultation, so you don’t need to be put in a waiting list.

The Procedure:

The CoolSculpting hand-piece is placed over the area of the unwanted fat area to be treated and left for 35 minutes. During this time, you can rest, read, check your emails or even nap! While you relax the fat is being frozen, causing the fat cells to die and the body’s natural processes then flush out these dead cells, removing them from the area and eventually the entire body.

Follow Up Treatment & Consultation:

At your consultation, the senior technician will go through your body goals and transformation plan. Then at your first treatment, your photograph will be taken and documented in order to track your fat reduction journey and ensure you get the desired results.

The second photograph will be taken 6 weeks post-treatment, at this stage, you are able to have a second session if you desire. Your final appointment consists after 12 weeks where your photos and weight will be taken for the last time to give you a spectacular before and after.
