Clinically proven results to remove fat and build muscle

Our procedures have been expertly designed with patient body goals and clinically proven results in mind. Our body sculpting treatments help patients to burn through pockets of body fat and tone up muscles across key problem-prone areas of the body, from your abs, stomach, love handles and thighs to your calf muscles, triceps, biceps, bingo wings and more. We combine fat freezing, muscle building, ultrasound and radiofrequency treatments to tighten skin, reduce fat and tone up muscle layers. All without any needles, surgery or weightlifting required.

Body Sculpting with CoolSculpting

For lasting fat loss, CoolSculpting® fat freezing technology is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat reduction (cryolipolysis) treatment, with a vast array of treatment applicators to treat:

CoolSculpting will often cause skin tightening as well as long-lasting fat reduction. In patients with significant, existing skin laxity sometimes we will combine CoolSculpting® with Ultherapy®, or Thermage®, for that extra lift.

Body Sculpting with EMSculpt

We can also use these body contouring treatments in combination with EMSculpt and EMSculpt Neo.

EMSculpt not only burns fat but builds muscle too. It is FDA-cleared and can be used on the abdomen, arms (biceps and triceps), legs (calves) and the buttocks to give the world’s first non-surgical, non-invasive ‘butt lift’. EMSculpt is ideal for both men and women who wish to sculpt their body, build muscle and burn fat, with no pain and no downtime.

Radiofrequency and Ultrasound Body Sculpting to tighten skin

Skin tightening procedures like Thermage CPT, Thermage FLX and Ultherapy also have great body sculpting properties to tighten loose skin with their collagen-stimulating effects. This can help patients to improve their body shape even further by contouring and sculpting skin that may have sagged or drooped with age. Thermage is one of the best non-invasive RF treatments, with key celebrity fans including Gwyneth Paltrow and Amanda Holden. We also offer the UK’s best Ultherapy service, having been voted as the number 1 premier Ultherapy clinic in the UK for the last 7 years.

Body Sculpting describes a range of treatments that destroy fat cells while building muscles and tightening skin. They are designed to reshape and redefine your body using a range of FDA-approved technologies, which freeze and destroy fat cells, tighten skin tissues and contract muscles to strengthen and tone them. EMSculpt Neo, Thermage, Thermage FLX, Ultherapy and CoolSculpting are four of the leading treatments in these areas, giving patients long-lasting results without any need for surgery, needles, gym exercise or recovery time.  

Body Sculpting is also known in the cosmetic and beauty industry as body contouring. Both terms describe procedures designed to reshape existing skin tissues through fat reduction, muscle toning and skin tightening processes. 

Fat loss is not the same thing as weight loss. Therefore, body sculpting procedures are not regarded as weight loss treatments. However, body sculpting is an excellent method to reduce fat and sculpt your body by targeting subcutaneous fat tissues. This type of fat describes the shallower and pinchable layer of fat that sits just beneath your dermis, covering your muscles. Procedures like CoolSculpting spot-reduce this type of fat strategically by freezing the cells using cryolipolysis to break them down. 


Surrounding nerves and muscles are protected, while the visible layers of fat are trimmed and reduced. This can drastically aid gym-going patients who have struggled to get rid of fat layers across key areas like their ‘six packs’ or abdominal muscles for example, as 20-25% of fat cells from this area will be eliminated and removed from the body. This amount of fat does not weigh a lot, so won’t decrease your weight, but it will certainly make the treated area look slimmer and more toned.

Yes! Advanced technologies like EMSculpt and EMSculpt Neo increase the size of your muscle mass by an average of up to 25% according to independent clinical studies. The advanced high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFEM+) energy used in these technologies contracts, sculpts and tones up muscle mass like a standard workout, only much more intensely and over a shorter period of time. One standard 30-minute session of EMSculpt for example represents the equivalent of doing 20,000 crunches or squats in a gym.

Each of our body sculpting treatments work in slightly different ways. However, every treatment that we offer is non-invasive, involving no surgery, pain, needles, exercise or downtime. Our CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure involves a series of 30-60-minute treatment sessions of cryolipolysis, which freezes and breaks down fat cells using a cryolipolysis machine. For EMSculpt and EMSculpt Neo treatments, similar machines are used to both reduce fat and build up muscle. But they apply radiofrequency and / or electromagnetic technologies instead. Thermage is a pure radiofrequency machine which firms and tightens loose skin using thermal collagen-stimulating energies. Ultherapy does a similar thing, but uses advanced ultrasound technology to boost collagen stores instead. 

Together, these treatments can give each patient a sculpted, trim and toned figure by directly targeting fat, sagging skin and muscle building in a highly precise and effective way. 

We offer a complete range of ultrasound, radiofrequency, fat freezing and electromagnetic procedures to reduce fat, firm skin and increase muscle size. Our expert clinicians can develop an individual treatment plan that targets areas of the body that you want to work on most after having a detailed consultation with you. We will then put together the plan using our Ultherapy, CoolSculpting, Thermage and EMSculpt technologies, to reflect your specific body sculpting needs. 

Patients can do so much with our body sculpting treatments, making it ideal for a wide variety of people. Lift your butt, tone up your six pack, sculpt your arms and more by reducing fat and building up muscle, or freeze body fat across key problem-prone areas. CoolSculpting is great to target troublesome areas of stubborn fat across the stomach, thighs, flanks, bingo wings, bra rolls, double chins, legs, arms and back. EMSculpt is ideal to use across the abs, arms, legs and buttocks to offer improved muscle definition and strength. Thermage can be used across multiple areas of the body, while Ultherapy is designed to tighten skin across your neck. Your treatment clinician will advise on the most impactful areas to treat with each method during your personal consultation.

Typically, patients undergo a series of sessions with us depending on their personal body goals and body sculpting requirements. Your practitioner will advise on the details of your proposed treatment plan during your consultation. Most patients usually attend a series of short 30-60-minute sessions with us to target fat and build muscle in specific zones across their bodies, as agreed with their practitioner. 

Both EMSculpt and CoolSculpting are clinically proven for their long-lasting results, with patients experiencing a sculpted and trim figure months after their cycle of treatments. Most patients start noticing CoolSculpting fat loss after just three weeks, with the most dramatic results coming through after 2 months. This is because the body continues to flush out the fat cells for up to three to six months after being treated. 


With EMSculpt treatments, some patients see tangible results right after their first session, with positive results showing through most significantly in 2 – 3 months after the final treatment. Both treatments destroy fat cells before they are naturally processed and eliminated from the body, while EMSculpt’s muscle-building results can last up to 6 months after treatment. 


With Thermage, results are delivered in one single treatment, and many patients feel the positive skin tightening results for several years after. Ultherapy patients have reported experiencing lifted, collagen-boosted skin for up to a year after just one session. 

Body Sculpting treatments are available at both our London and Buckinghamshire clinic locations. Contact us directly to book a consultation at either one of these clinics or email us on info@cosmeticskinclinic for further information. 

At present, EMSculpt Neo, our newest Body Sculpting service, is only available at our London clinic, but consultations can be conducted for this service at both locations. You can also contact our London and Buckinghamshire clinics by phone on 0343 253 8240.
