What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that permanently removes fat without surgery and without any downtime. It is a highly effective treatment that has been proven to reduce the number of fat cells within a person’s body. Research shows that each treatment can remove up to 20% of fat from the area treated, and 2 treatments can remove 40% (however results may vary from patient to patient).
Based on scientific evidence by Harvard University researchers, it was shown that when fat cells are exposed to low temperatures, these fat cells are crystalissed and destroyed – effectively meaning that they die, and our body works to remove the cells naturally.
Coolsculpting can be used to target excess fat on various areas of the body including the: waist, tummy, love handles, inner thighs, outer thighs, back, arms, chin/neck , knees, ankles or bra fat. CoolSculpting can effectively reduce fat in areas that cannot be removed with diet and exercise.
How does CoolSculpting work?
Coolscuplting works by exposing the targeted treatment area to low temperatures. Research shows that once fat cells are exposed to these low temperatures, they are selectively and painlessly destroyed. Once destroyed, the bodies immune system kicks in to remove the fat cells.
When undergoing the treatment you may experience some very mild discomfort at the commencement of the treatment, however this settles quickly. The treatment takes around 45-60 minutes, and we recommend people bring a book to read.
There is no downtime, and patients start to see results after a few weeks, with final result evident at 6 months.
How much does Coolsculpting cost?
CoolSculpting prices start from $750 per area, per treatment. There are packages available for multiple treatments and multiple areas which can reduce the cost to $450 per treatment. Contact us for more information.
