What is Coolsculpting?

CoolSculpting, also known as ‘cryolipolysis’, is a non-surgical procedure that targets pockets of excess fat. The technique uses controlled cooling to assist the body in removing fat cells from the body.

CoolSculpting is effective in removing stubborn areas of fat that have been resistant to lifestyle steps such as taking more exercise and dietary changes. Working to destroy fat cells via a freezing process, CoolSculpting can reshape the body, encouraging a more lean profile.

Losing pockets of fat can become harder with age, despite maintaining a strict exercise programme and diet. This is because of changes to the body’s metabolism as we get older. CoolSculpting can be an effective natural treatment, offering a non-invasive way of removing resistant fat cells without any injections or surgery.

How does Coolsculpting work?

During the CoolSculpting procedure, your practitioner will vacuum the area of skin above the fatty tissue with an applicator, cooling the targeted fat cells. You are likely to feel a cooling sensation as the cold temperature numbs the area. The skin and surrounding tissues will not be harmed. A CoolSculpting treatment session usually lasts between one and three hours, after which the body will naturally process and remove the fat cells. You might feel a little pinching and pulling during the procedure, but this is not painful.

Massage can be given to the treated area following the procedure in order to break up frozen tissue.Occasionally people notice some minor soreness at the treatment site, but as there is no damage to the tissue or skin, no recovery time is necessary.

Before undergoing CoolSculpting, you will be invited to a free consultation with a PICO Clinics practitioner.

In some cases, several CoolSculpting treatments may be necessary.
