FAQ's

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary non-invasive procedure that uses controlled freezing to destroy fat cells permanently & painlessly and can be used upon loose fat rolls or localised areas of fat.

How does it work?

It crystallises fat cells, causing them to die. The remaining fat cells condense causing a significant reduction in the size of the area treated.

With weight loss due to dieting the number of fat cells is not reduced, they just simply contain less fat. The fat rebuilds in these cells when you stop dieting.

With Coolsculpting the fat cells are permanently destroyed. Treated fat cells that have been crystallised are permanently destroyed and will not re-grow.

What is the procedure?

The treatment area is clearly marked.

The Coolsculpting ‘cup’ is placed over and around the area which draws the area into the ‘cup’.

The Coolsculpting machine begins to cool the fat in this vacuum for 60 minutes.

How long does it take and how long does it last?

The procedure takes 75 minutes. Reduction in the size of the area treated can be seen as early as three weeks after treatment, with full results evident after two to four months.

Results are long term so maintenance treatments are typically not required.

What are the results?

Cool Sculpting achieves permanent results which start to be visible after the first 3 to 6 weeks. It takes between 2 to 4 months to see the full results of the treatment. Clinical studies show that on average 25% of fat cells in the area treated with each area of treatment.

Is there any pre or post care needed?

As the skin has been protected and not frozen during the treatment, there is no skin damage.

No restrictions, no preparation and no post treatment care required.

Are there any side affects?

  • Usually there are no side effects at all.
  • No down time afterwards.
  • A temporary tingling (or numbness) in the bulge being treated.
  • The bulge can remain tender for up to 1 week after the treatment.
  • Some people experience slight bruising in the area treated.

What does it cost?

At the time of the consultation you’ll be assessed and given an accurate quote. Total price depends on the size of the area and the number of areas but as a general guide the pricing is from $950* per treatment for the first two treatments, from $850* for the third treatment and from $750 for any further treatments required after that

What areas and who can be treated?

  • Abdomen – post pregnancy baby belly
  • Middle age spread that causes unwanted bulging in the front and sides of the abdomen
  • Love handles
  • Rolls of back fat
  • Fat bulges in the upper arms

Who is not suitable for the treatment?

  • People who are generally overweight without specific fat bulges.
  • People that have a loose roll of skin without fat. This is most successfully treated with Skin Tightening and Strengthening with Ultrasound.
