Some of us have unwanted fat that seems impossible to remove. If you want to lose that last bit of stubborn fat, but you don’t want to undergo surgery, there is another less invasive option: CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire.
At our clinic, The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we have the ability to offer ‘Dualsculpting’. This means by using two Coolsculpting machines we can treat two areas at the same time which cuts the treating time down by half. For example, we can treat one area in 35 mins with one machine which would take 1 hour 10 minutes.. By using two machines at the same time we can treat two areas in a total of 35 minutes so various parts of your body can be worked upon simultaneously. We are one of the few clinics to also offer ‘Trisculpting’ as we have multiple machines in each of our clinics.
What is CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire?
By using the controlled cooling system to target the chosen area of fat which will eventually cause the cells to freeze, these cells eventually shrivel and die and are disposed of by the body’s lymphatic system.
What does the process entail?
We will apply a gel pad to protect your skin to the area being treated, followed by a vacuum-like applicator that suctions in the peak of the area being treated for 35 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the applicator being used as some applicators take longer to treat than others but a practitioner will advise you of this at your consultation.
During your session, you might feel minor discomfort, such as a tugging or pulling sensation. Often clients are pleasantly surprised how little they do feel, the cooling process numbs the area after a few minutes.
How many sessions will I need for the desired effect?
The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. The amount of fat in the area or your desired goals will ultimately determine how many sessions you’ll require. We recommend that all patients see us for a complimentary consultation so that we can assess together and create a bespoke treatment plan for you.
Will I see immediate results?
You will be able to see results as early as four to six weeks after your treatment and will continue to improve week on week up to sixteen weeks after initial treatment.
Can CoolSculpting be used to lose weight?
CoolSculpting should accompany regular exercise and a healthy eating plan. CoolSculpting helps you to reach your ideal body shape, but should not replace natural weight loss solutions.
Does the fat stay off forever?
The fat cells that were treated can never grow back, but the surrounding cells can still expand if you do not follow sensible eating and exercise habits. We recommend following an active, healthy lifestyle to assist with the best results possible.
Which parts of the body does CoolSculpting target?
Various areas of the body can be treated, abdomen, mummy tummy, inner thighs and outer thighs, flanks (muffin top), back fat, bra fat, the banana roll fat under the buttocks, and upper arms (bingo wings), even double chins.
Is there a long recovery time?
In today’s world, owing to demanding work schedules, it seems impossible to take an extended leave, which is another reason why CoolSculpting is growing ever more popular. Take 35 to 60 minutes out of your day, and after your session, you can head straight back to work.
Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting Buckinghamshire is non-surgical, minimally invasive, and does not require weeks of downtime.
