Ask the expert: CoolSculpting

No matter how many hours we spend exercising or dieting, many of us have stubborn areas of unwanted fat that are hard to shift. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that uses controlled cooling to eliminate fat cells and contour the body.

Our CoolSculpting expert, Senior Aesthetician Mamuna, answers your questions…

How long you have been performing CoolSculpting?

I have over 17 years of clinical experience working within the non-surgical industry, 11 of which I have spent at Transform as a Patient Advisor and a Medical Aesthetician/Practitioner. I am a Skincare Expert, Laser Technician and a CoolSculpting Specialist.

The CoolSculpting procedure has been available at the York Street clinic for the last 7 years and has treated and helped countless patients to achieve their goals to look and feel great. CoolSculpting is also available at the Birmingham and London Cornhill clinics.  

As an expert; my continued years of education, training, and experience in Aesthetics allows me to provide a tailored approach to consultation and treatment both pre and post treatment, ensuring that you fully understand how non-surgical treatments work and how they can benefit you. 

What does the CoolSculpting procedure offer?

CoolSculpting is a surgery-free fat reducing treatment that uses controlled cooling to target fat cells. It is designed to reduce stubborn, exercise resistant fat by 20-25%, eliminating them for good. Targeted cells are crystallised (frozen) and processed naturally by the body through the lymphatic system. What’s more, because there is no needles used, downtime is minimal, so you can get back to your normal routine straight away with very little interruption to your day.

What is the downtime?

There is no recovery time and you can return to your daily activities shortly after the procedure. You can expect temporary redness, with mild tingling and numbness in the treated area, but this soon disappears after treatment.

How long will it be until I see results?

You will certainly start to see results as rapidly as 2-4 weeks post treatment with the most effective results taking place in just 1 – 3 months. Further sessions can additionally improve your results and it’s worth noting that lifestyle changes that including a healthy diet, drinking plenty of water and exercising regularly can help maintain the effects.

How many cycles of CoolSculpting would you recommend?

I will always customise a treatment plan during consultation and several options are explored in reducing the fat and contouring your body shape in the area concerned.

More than one CoolSculpting treatment session may be advised dependant on the individual. For example, you may want to have treatment in multiple areas or you may want to re-visit the treated area to reach your optimal aspiration. We also have a summer offer on CoolSculpting at the moment with a discount of 25% off the treatment.

Who are suitable candidates?

This procedure is excellent for those who spend a lot of time and effort in trying to lose weight but are constantly blocked by impervious and stubborn fat. The ideal candidates for CoolSculpting will have obvious pockets of fat in exact areas i.e. stomach, flanks, lower back, inner thighs, bingo wings, legs, buttocks, hips and thighs that they would like to get rid of. 

Both men and women are excellent candidates for treatment as long as they are committed to maintaining and continuing a healthy lifestyle before, during and after treatment.

Is CoolSculpting comparable to Vaser lipo?

The two are very different in their approach in eliminating fat. Vaser liposuction uses ultra-sonic technology to shake fat cells and breakdown unwanted fat, whereas the CoolSculpting procedure freezes the fat away for good. With Vaser, the down time can be longer than Coolsculpting but it is certainly quicker than surgery.

You would then pay 12 monthly instalments of £175

The total amount repayable would be £2,100

The rate of interest is 0% per annum fixed, representative 0% APR

If you’d prefer to spread the cost of your treatment over two to five years, you can choose this option to pay a minimum deposit of £500 and borrow the remaining amount, making repayments over 24, 36, 48 or 60 months with interest. Read more about the loans we offer here.
