CoolSculpting is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction, and is particularly useful in treating areas resistant to diet and exercise – inner and outer thighs, ‘love handles’ and abdomen.
The CoolSculpting procedure eliminates stubborn fat safely and effectively, without surgery or downtime. This fat reduction treatment is the only FDA-cleared procedure to use controlled cooling to safely target and eliminate diet- and exercise-resistant fat. CoolSculpting results are proven, noticeable, and lasting.
Freeze away fat? This process is termed cryolipolysis. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you.
Attune Aesthetics at Boston House will develop a customised CoolSculpting treatment plan that addresses your problem areas. Additional sessions may further enhance your results. Your individualised treatment plan will be tailored to your body, goals, and budget.
Of course, it may not be the correct option for every patient; Attune Aesthetics and Miles Banwell will advise you accordingly when surgery (liposuction, tummy tuck, thigh lift etc) is actually a more suitable way forward to achieve your goals.
It’s easy to sit back and relax during the procedure. After we select the area(s) to be treated, the device is positioned on your body and controlled cooling is applied. During your procedure, you may choose to read, check email, or even sleep.
The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical, so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.
In the weeks and months following your procedure, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells.
Set up your consultation, and plan a way forward to target long-term results in those areas that have resisted all efforts through diet and exercise. Contact us today to find out if the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is right for you. It is important to remember that inevitably results and experiences vary between patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Am I a good candidate?
A: Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
Q: How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?
A: The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. Attune Aesthetics will help create a customised treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, goals, and budget.
Q: How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?
A: The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals. If requested, Attune Aesthetics at Boston House can treat two body areas (e.g. both ‘love handles’) simultaneously in the same patient. The great benefit which this Dual Sculpting capability offers patients is time efficiency – effectively halving the overall treatment time required.
Q: Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?
A: Once the treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), the effect on them is permanent and irreversible (cell death). Over time your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells.
Q: What does it feel like?
A: As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even fall asleep during their treatment.
Q: Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?
A: The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
Q: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
A: Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Patients often return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
Q: When will I see results?
A: You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Q: Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?
A: No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment.
Q: What happens if I gain weight at a later date?
A: Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
