What is CoolSculpting Fat Freezing

CoolSculpting® is a fat reduction treatment based on the clinically proven science of Cryolipolysis® or fat freezing and came about in 1999 when scientists at Harvard University observed that some children who ate ice lollies got dimples in their cheeks. The scientists realized that the lollies were freezing and eliminating small pockets of fat cells.

This was the insight that led to Cryolipolysis® - on which the CoolSculpting® fat freezing procedure is based – being used as a permanent fat reduction treatment.

CoolSculpting is the worlds number 1 non-invasive fat reduction system. With over six million treatments performed worldwide, CoolSculpting is the only FDA cleared fat freezing treatment, which permanently and safely removes 20-25% of the fat cells in the treated area. No needles, no surgery, no downtime!

MediZen are the only clinic in the West Midlands with DualSculpting™ so you can treat multiple areas at one time - twice the fat in half the time!

Before CoolSculpting® treatment

Before your CoolSculpting®treatment, we invite you to visit our medically led clinic in Sutton Coldfield, with easy transport links to surrounding areas such as Walsall, Lichfield, Tamworth and Birmingham. To be sure that CoolSculpting®is the most effective treatment for you, our body sculpting expert will explain the process, what results you can expect to achieve and any potential side effects to ensure that you have all the information before you decide whether to go ahead with treatment. During your consultation, the areas you wish to undergo CoolSculpting® will be assessed and a personalised treatment plan, to get you the best result, will be decided upon. As part of the process, we will take a thorough medical history and take photographs of the area to be sculpted to document your starting point before treatment.

During CoolSculpting® Treatment 

Treatments take between 1 to 2 hours depending on the area being treated and will take place in one of our modern treatment rooms. You can bring a book to read or your laptop if you would like to do some work or just lie back, relax and enjoy the experience. During the CoolSculpting®procedure, controlled cooling is applied to the targeted fat areas. A gel pad and applicator are applied to the area or areas identified and cooling begins. The cooling process should numb the area after a few minutes and you may experience a firm pulling sensation on the specific fat being treated as the cooling cups set to work removing heat from the fat cells, effectively freezing (crystallising) them and causing the cells to die. During treatment you may feel tugging, pinching, numbness or slight discomfort – this is normal and nothing to worry about. At MediZen we can also offer DualSculpting™ which uses two machines that perform CoolSculpting®treatments simultaneously decreasing treatment time by half.

After CoolSculpting® Treatment 

After treatment, the ‘frozen’ fat cells continue to break down to be flushed away as part of the body’s natural cycle. We do take every measure to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during and after treatment and when the treatment is over we vigorously massage the treated area. Because CoolSculpting®is carried out without the need for surgery, there is little downtime and most patients can return to their normal activities right away; a tiny number of recipients may experience minor side-effects which should disappear quickly. With regards to results, you may start to see changes from three weeks onwards with maximum results at around two months and with ongoing improvements, up to six months after that as more fat cells are eliminated from the body.

CoolSculpting® Side Effects 

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-cleared Cryolipolysis® fat reduction treatment*. With over six million procedures to-date worldwide, the treatment is proven to be safe and effective for non-surgical fat reduction. Some people undergoing CoolSculpting® treatments will not experience any side effects, however, as with all aesthetic procedures, you will experience minor side-effects such as temporary numbness, redness, swelling or firmness of the treated area, bruising, tingling, stinging or pain after treatment.

Is CoolSculpting® Fat Reduction Suitable for me? 

Anyone with unwanted bulges of ‘pinchable’ fat in areas such as the chin, upper arms, flanks, abdomen and thighs, is a potential candidate for CoolSculpting® treatment. Whilst CoolSculpting® is not a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise, it is an effective treatment for getting rid of those stubborn fat deposits that refuse to budge no matter how many calories you count and crunches, squats or planks you do. CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution but it can be very effective at de-bulking unpleasant looking bulges to recontour and reshape your body. A one-to-one consultation will allow us to determine if CoolSculpting® is right for you. During the consultation, we will discuss everything in detail, looking at your whole body and at your specific areas of concern and make a full assessment and recommendations for treatment.
