You’d be forgiven for serving the side-eye to the non-invasive body-sculpting movement that promises to do the job of liposuction – permanently removing up to 27% of fat, with no nips, tucks or downtime.

Do the treatments work? How does the fat disappear without surgery? And are there seriously no side effects or downtime? We ask our Australian Skin Clinics experts for the answers.

How does Coolsculpting® fat freezing work?

Coolsculpting® Fat Freezing is a non-invasive technology that uses controlled cooling to target fat cells while normal body tissues remain unaffected. “Our Coolsculpting® system uses dual applicators to treat multiple areas within the same treatment. It combines vacuum suction with cooling temperature to target the excess fat in common areas like arms, abdomen, love handles, chin and inner and outer thighs. “The technology is a much safer alternative to liposuction meaning, alongside exercise and a good diet, problem areas can be reduced without going under the knife.”

When will I see results?

Clients can expect visible results from Coolsculpting® treatments 6-12 weeks post-treatment, with each treatment destroying up to 27% per cent of fat cells – making it the perfect treatment for summer.

A writer for Northshore Mums tried and tested the treatment and said she was amazed that she saw obvious, immediate results after just one session. “Even after just one treatment, my tummy was ‘tucked’, and I felt lighter and leaner,” she said. “I got definite centimetres off my measurements without doing a single step class.”

Who is the treatment suitable for?

The treatment is perfect for busy people who want to reduce stubborn fat quickly and effectively. “A walk-in and walk-out appointment once a month means clients are able to return to their normal activities after their hour session,” say our experts.

“We’ve had clients lose almost 4cm off their arms after just one treatment, 9 cm off their buttocks after three treatments, and we’ve seen some clients tone up and drop a further 4-6 cm from their midsection, our most popular treatment, after just three treatments!”
