How Coolsculpting works

The procedure delivers precise and controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen) and as a result destroyed. Over time your body will process these dead cells via your lymphatic system resulting in a slimmer you.


The Coolsculpting® procedure
targets and cools fat cells to
temperatures that cause fat
cells to die (a process known
as apoptosis)*






Coolsculpting® selectively
works on subcutaneous fatty
tissue while preserving the
skin and surrounding tissues*







Following treatment, fat
cells are destroyed*








The body naturally
processes the fat and
dead cells are removed








Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect during the Procedure

Once positioned our practitioner applies pads that will vacuum your skin above the area of fatty tissue. The applicators will then begin to cool the fat cells, this will cause you to feel a slight pulling or suction sensation. After a few minutes, the cold temperatures will numb the area. During the treatment will you be encouraged to lie back and relax, at this point, you will be free to enjoy a hot beverage, watch TV or use your smartphone. Once completed our practitioner will perform a lymphatic massage on the treated area and advise you to drink plenty of water.

Treatment usually takes between 60 minutes


How much downtime should I expect

Due to the non-surgical nature of the procedure, there is no recovery time. However, some report soreness at the area treated for between two days to two weeks.


What results can I expect?

Results with CoolSculpting are long-term and proven. Results can be seen from as little as three to four weeks and keep improving over a 12 week period.
