How to eliminate stubborn areas of fat

Combat those tough areas with CoolSculpting® fat freezing technology

Running club on Wednesday. Personal training session on Saturday. Zumba after coffee on those dull Monday mornings. Does your diary resonate with ours? If the answer is yes- chances are, there are areas of your body that you’d like to improve.

Maybe it’s those little parts that still show up in your black Christmas party dress, or the photo you refuse to put up on Facebook because it hints towards a double-chin?

We know that feeling! We all have stubborn areas of fat that we can’t get rid of, whether it’s our arms, belly, back, thighs or face. Often, they are hereditary- so there is little we can do to minimise them, no matter how much exercise or careful meal planning we do.

Rigorous exercise is not the only way to address these small, stubborn areas of fat. We explain a form of fat reduction treatment called CoolSculpting®, which deals with these pockets in a smart, non-invasive way.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a safe and effective body sculpting treatment which uses Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) technology. The name `Cryolipolysis` sums up the treatment- `cryo` meaning cold, and `lipolysis` meaning fat cell death. Focusing on small areas of the body, it uses controlled cooling and vacuum suction to target, crystallise and destroy fat cells. Once the fat cells have been destroyed and released into the lymphatic system for your body to naturally dispel them (wee out!), they will not return. CoolSculpting® takes 35-45 minutes per session and does not require any time off work, making it a popular treatment for those always on the go. No needles are used during the treatment either, and instead, a suction-like applicator is used. The applicators come in many sizes, from mini (designed for the chin and bra puff) and Cool Advantage (upper back, banana roll, flanks, inner thighs), so it’s always best to speak to a specialist before deciding which areas you’d like to have treated.

How does CoolSculpting® work?

The best way to describe CoolSculpting® technology is by looking at the history of it! Years ago, scientists at Harvard University found that children who enjoyed eating ice lollies were prone to dimples on their cheeks. Why? As the children sucked on lollies, the cooling temperature of the ice reduced fat cells in the cheeks over time without damaging the skin. From this idea, the aesthetics world saw fat reduction through freezing as a highly impactful treatment, and CoolSculpting® was born some decades later.

Who can get CoolSculpting®?

If your body is generally healthy and proportioned but you have small pockets of fat, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. If you answer `yes` to the following questions, then you may benefit from booking a free consultation with one of our specialist practitioners.

·  Do you go to the gym regularly?

·  Do you have an active lifestyle?

·  Do you consider yourself fit?

·  Do you consider yourself healthy?

·  Do you eat well?

·  Are you happy with your weight?

·  Are you generally happy with your overall body shape?

Although an effective treatment,  CoolSculpting® works better when a healthy, active lifestyle is maintained. We’re not saying treats are off the table- but being mindful about what you eat will speed up the fat reduction process when following a CoolSculpting® treatment plan. Caving into your Friday night Chinese takeaway and the office biscuits, however, will not help your progress in any way. CoolSculpting® is not a shortcut to your desired body, you need to do the work too! With the right treatment plan, your active lifestyle and balanced diet- you’ll see the results of CoolSculpting® in no time (no ice lollies required).


Why choose CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is the UK’s leading Cryolipolysis treatment. Here are some of the facts:

·  Over 5 million treatment sessions have been performed worldwide

·  CoolSculpting® is the only FDA cleared Cryolipolysis treatment in the UK, meaning it is of the highest standard in drugs and medicine

·  CoolSculpting® reduces fat by up to 27% on any body area after one full treatment

·  The machine has a `freeze detect` feature, meaning it will shut off if it gets too cold, protecting you from the risk of injury

It is important to know that although CoolSculpting® is the only FDA approved fat-freezing treatment in the UK, it’s not the only one. You may notice that other providers, clinics and even beauty salons now offer a Cryolipolysis treatment of some kind. These treatments may be cheaper, but it is worth noting that they are not FDA approved and may not be as effective as CoolSculpting® by Allergan. If you should use alternative fat-freezing treatments, always ask for the associated risks and ensure your practitioner is fully qualified.

Each year, we help thousands of customers to achieve their goals through CoolSculpting®. Book a free consultation with one of our specialist practitioners today, and we’ll help create a treatment plan for you.
