Coolsculpting

February 1, 2017

Coolsculpting, the new frontier of fat reduction and body sculpting.

What do you do when you have that stubborn area of fat that won’t budge no matter how hard you work at it?

The answer is Coolsculpting, a revolutionary medical treatment that shapes not only your body but your thinking on fat reduction.

Karen Shirley, Clinical Specialist of cosmetic specialists The Skin Clinicians, which has added the procedure to its list of treatments, said Coolsculpting results were proven, noticeable and lasting.

She said Coolsculpting precisely and safely delivered controlled cooling to selectively targeted fat cells without damaging neighbouring tissue.

“This safe cooling of unwanted fat, causes fat cell death and the subsequent elimination of those fat cells leaving a more sculpted you, said Karen.

Is Coolsculpting safe? Yes.

Over 4 million treatments have been completed worldwide. It was researched by Harvard Medical and has Therapeutic Goods Administration (Aust) and US Food and Drug Administration approval.

Who can have this treatment? Not everyone is a candidate for Coolsculpting.  Unlike gastric bypass surgery, this procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese.

It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

It’s always important to have a consultation with a qualified nurse or doctor to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.

This is a medical procedure so ask for credentials!

What areas can be treated with Coolsculpting?

The upper and lower abdomen, chin, inner and outer thighs, love handles, arms, male chest, bra rolls, back fat, waistline, and knee fat.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, with the majority of the reduction by 12 weeks.

However, fat cell death continues for up to six months after treatment.

How much will it cost?

The price for Coolsculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals.

A single application starts at $850.

Packages and payment plans are available for multiple applications.

At consultation, your clinician will create a customized treatment plan that’s tailored to your body, your goals and your budget.

What does it feel like?

During the first few minutes, as the cooling begins, you will feel intense cold.  

This quickly dissipates as the area loses sensation and becomes numb.

Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even have a nap during treatment.

Can I resume normal activities after my treatment? Yes, you can.

The Coolsculpting procedure is completely non- surgical, you can return to normal activities immediately.

Does a consultation cost anything?

At The Skin Clinicians, we don’t charge for a consultation.

We are a medical clinic happy to assess, and educate you regarding your options.
