Going for your CoolSculpting treatment? What you can expect from The Cosmetic Skin Clinic

By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM

So, you’ve attended your first consultation with us at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic and now you are eagerly awaiting your fat-freezing appointment. Exciting!

Although our team will have undoubtedly spoken to you about what to expect during the procedure, it is easy to forget! Will it be uncomfortable? What about recovery times?

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we are proud that you have chosen to undertake your CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire with us and we have provided this guide to help you mentally prepare for the procedure. We want you to be as informed as possible before you undertake any treatment with us and hope you find the following guide useful.

Read on to discover what a typical CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire session consists of with The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.

Step 1- Preparation

When you arrive at our clinic for your CoolSculpting in Buckinghamshire, our team will greet you and show you to the room where the procedure will take place. One of our clinicians will run through the procedure with you and answer any questions you may have.

If you are particularly nervous, our team will show you all of the equipment that they will use and discuss the role of each bit in the process. The discussion now complete, our team will place a clear gel on to the area where the fat removal is to take place.

Assuming that you are 100% comfortable and happy to proceed, we will move on to the next step.

Don’t worry; this treatment only really involves about 3 stages and is not a complex process; you’ll be fine!

Step 2- Treatment

Now, it is time for the really cool part (see what we did there?).

Our team will place the cooling panel which is the vacuum onto the skin. It is likely that during this stage, you may feel a tight or sucking sensation in this area; this is normal and nothing to worry about. It is also likely that you will feel the coldness of the vacuum, which may cause a bit of a shiver! Any feeling of pinching, stretching or pulling will quickly subside as the cooling panel numbs the area. As your hands will be totally free, why not spend the next 35 minutes reading a book, checking emails or even undertaking a brief meditation session?

Step 3- Massage therapy

After about 3 minutes, our team will remove the cooling panel from your skin; your skin may appear slightly red or may look a bit swollen. Once again, this is completely normal.

Now, for the really relaxing part!

Our clinicians will then perform a massage to the treatment area, to help break up the dead fat cells and to enhance your results in the long term. As this is a targeted massage, it may feel a bit different from the one you get at the spa, but don’t worry; it should feel extremely relaxing.

Once the massage is completed, your treatment is over, and you can go about your day as you would normally.
