Fat Loss Treatment

Non-Surgical Liposuction

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction which uses intense cold to break down stubborn areas of fat. So what does the treatment feel like?

As the name suggests, CoolSculpting feels very cold! At least at first.

The machine delivers controlled cooling directly to the targeted area of fat in order to freeze the cells, which triggers them being destroyed and then expelled.

The cold sensation is most intense during the first few minutes of treatment and can be an initial shock, but the sensation does lessen fairly quickly as the cold numbs the area as it works. Patients find it a strange sensation but it is quite tolerable, especially if you know what to expect.

As well as cold, the CoolSculpting uses a vacuum which pulls the fatty tissues into the applicator for most efficient cooling. You can expect to feel the flesh being pulled in. Again, it may feel a little strange, but it is entirely safe and quite tolerable.

After the CoolSculpting treatment has been delivered, the area will be massaged for a couple of minutes. At this point, you may experience some tingling as sensation returns.

This treatment is completely non-invasive – no needles or scalpels involved – and there is minimal downtime afterwards. Once destroyed, the fat cells are broken down and removed by the body’s own metabolic processes, gradually revealing a leaner body shape.

Fat Freezing Body Shaping

CoolSculpting is a good treatment for refining the shape of the body by getting rid of annoying pockets of fat and stubborn trouble-spots that can gather around the abdomen (tummy, stomach, belly) and the tops of the legs (outer thighs, inner thighs, saddlebags).

It can also be used on smaller areas such as back fat (around the bra area), double chin, ankles, knees or upper arms.

CoolSculpting treatment is now available at Quinn Clinics, Bristol.
