Have you tried CoolSculpting yet? It’s one of the most well-known fat reduction treatments in the world, lauded for its safe, non-invasive and – best of all – permanent body sculpting effects. The results of CoolSculpting have been praised by patients and practitioners alike, but what does it actually do? And is it right for you? Here are the benefits you need to know before you book…
First, what is CoolSculpting?
The clue is in the name. CoolSculpting is a fat freezing device which cools down and destroys fat cells on any part of your body – from your thighs to your abs to your chin and neck. It’s actually known as a cryolipolysis treatment, which means it uses extreme cold temperatures to spot-treat even the most stubborn fat cells – including those that don’t respond to exercise or a healthy diet.
When you book in for a CoolSculpting session, a vacuum applicator is passed over your chosen treatment area, which applies light suction and a cooling sensation to your skin. Carefully regulated cooling plates freeze the fat tissue deep beneath the skin, which causes them permanent damage. The fat then breaks down, so it’s able to be naturally eliminated from your body. The breaking down of fat cells can take a few weeks, but patients will tell you the sculpted effects are worth the small wait.
What are the benefits of CoolSculpting?
1. You get a targeted treatment
If your exercise regimen isn’t reaching certain stubborn pockets of fat, CoolSculpting will precisely target the areas with concentrated fat reduction. All PTs know you can’t spot reduce through workouts, but CoolSculpting allows you to focus in on various areas of the body, using different size applicators for bespoke results. The FDA even approves the use of the treatment on very small parts of the body, such as the chin and the neck – a popular choice for those wanting to treat ‘tech neck‘.
2. The results are ultra-effective
With CoolSculpting, patients can expect to see a noticeable reduction in fat deposits after a single treatment. In fact, we have a host of ‘before and afters’ (below) to show you just how effective this treatment can be. And, while the effects aren’t instant (like they might be with liposuction), they’re delivered in a non-invasive way and take only weeks to appear. Expect to see a more streamlined figure around 3-4 weeks after treatment. Full results will then be visible around three months after treatment.
3. Every treatment plan is bespoke
At Mallucci, all patients get a tailor-made treatment plan. After an initial consultation, we will advise on the right number of CoolSculpting sessions to achieve your body goals. We don’t believe in ‘one size fits all’ care; our patients receive the most bespoke service from our qualified team of experts and doctors, so you always get the results you deserve.
4. There’s no scarring or pain
While CoolSculpting is no doubt chilly and comes with a little discomfort, this fat reduction procedure keeps any pain or stinging at bay. In fact, while it delivers intense cold to the deeper fat layers, you’ll only notice a gentler cooling sensation on the surface of skin. Plus, unlike surgical procedures, the treatment is completely non-invasive, so you won’t experience any scarring afterwards. No one will even know you’ve been to the clinic.
5. The treatment sessions are short
On a tight schedule? No problem. The treatment time for a single session of CoolSculpting is between 30 and 60 minutes, which means it can fit around even the busiest lifestyles. You can even drop in during your lunch hour. You also have two Mallucci locations to choose between – South Kensington and Mayfair –so there’s always a clinic nearby when you’re in Central London.
6. You won’t experience downtime
No matter which part of your body has been treated with CoolSculpting, you won’t have to go through any downtime after leaving the clinic. You can go about your normal activities, whether that’s work, date night or heading to the gym. The one side effect you might notice is a little skin sensitivity after the ‘chilling’. This will go away quickly, but make sure you’re using only gentle skincare or bodycare on the area while it calms down.
7. It complements your regular exercise routine and diet
CoolSculpting works in tandem with a healthy lifestyle. The two go hand-in-hand, enhancing one another’s effects for long-lasting results that just get better with time. So, while you maintain a consistent exercise regimen, your series of treatments will target the fatty tissue that just won’t budge, giving you a more holistic approach to body contouring.
