Last week we discussed points to think about when considering CoolSculpting as a body contouring treatment. As a follow on this week, we are sharing the personal experience of Beauty, Fashion and Travel blogger Gabriella Pisani.
Gabriella writes a blog ‘By Gabriella’ which is dedicated to health and beauty, exploring the latest and greatest products and treatments..
Here’s what she had to say about Magda and her CoolSculpting experience at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic:
‘Whilst I’ve always been curvy (boobs and bum in bundles), I’d always managed to maintain a fairly flat stomach. That was until a year or so ago. I noticed a little paunch appear out of nowhere.
Then in came an email, subject titled ‘Get Your Body Summer Ready With CoolSculpting…’ I’d heard about the treatment before and knew of success stories from beauty editors and bloggers. So I took the plunge and booked a consultation with The Cosmetic Skin Clinic in London. I’d heard amazing things about this clinic, for various other treatments available there and if anyone was going near my nether regions, it was going to be a pro.
A week later I was all booked in for the treatment with Senior Medical Aesthetician Magda at the clinic. I had 2 cycles on my lower stomach, and then afterwards two on each hip. Each cycle lasts 45 minutes, so I was there for a total of 90 minutes and for most people, one treatment is enough, however Magda advises some need two sessions for the best results.
CoolSculpting is essentially a fat-freezing treatment. By delivering a controlled cooling, the fat cells underneath the skin are targeted. The treated fat cells are frozen and then are said to die. Over time (this can take up to 3 months) your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving behind a more sculpted physique in your chosen area. Happy days I hear you say. That’s absolutely what I said when I left after the treatment. I had 3 weeks almost to the day, from the day of the procedure until my next bikini-baring holiday, so I was feeling confident.
The treatment was now 3 weeks ago, and I can definitely see a very slight reduction in the paunch, from side-on. I will keep you posted with results as and when I see them, so watch this space…’
