What is CoolSculpting?

Teal Feathers 5

At the Light Touch Clinic, we use CoolSculpting to freeze unwanted body fat and remove it from the body. Using the power of Cryolipolysis (The cooling of body fat to break down fat cells, resulting in a reduction of body fat without damaging other tissues) this non-invasive weight loss treatment freezes and eventually kills fat cells. CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved fat freezing procedure and the best way to get rid of unwanted fat without going under the knife.

CoolSculpting is the ideal treatment for those stubborn areas of fat which won’t shift, no matter how much you diet or exercise. Our CoolSculpting machines have a built-in safety feature to ensure no other surrounding tissue or fat is damaged during the freezing process.

How does Coolsculpting work?

CoolSculpting works by cooling fat cells to the point of freezing. These frozen fat cells then begin to crystallise and then undergo natural apoptosis (death of cells). Finally, your body flushes out these dead fat cells, which leads to less fat! CoolSculpting will leave you with a more defined and sculpted physique as the destroyed fat cells are removed from the body.

CoolSculpting is the only FDA approved, non-surgical fat removal treatment that utilises a controlled cooling system. Treatments can take up to 2 hours, depending on the areas being treated, so sit back in our beautiful clinic, relax and watch some Netflix whilst we get rid of your unwanted fat!

What should I expect after my Coolsculpting session?

Since CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment there is virtually no down time! This means you’re able to get back to your day-to-day activities almost straight away. After your treatment session, you may notice slight redness or swelling of the treated area, however this should subside within a few hours. Coolsculpting will also leave the treated area feeling numb to the touch for up to ten weeks, due to the very cold temperatures the treated area is exposed to.

Within three weeks of your first treatment, you should begin to notice results. This is the rough time it takes your body to start eliminating the dead fat cells, however everyone’s body is different, so don’t be disappointed if you don’t see any results by this stage. More pronounced results should be visible within two months of your treatment, with improvements up to six months after your CoolSculpting session.

Here at LTC, patient safety is our number one priority. This is why your treatment will only be performed by the most experienced, qualified, and safety conscious aestheticians.
