What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 non-surgical body contouring system. It is used to help eliminate areas of stubborn subcutaneous fat that can be difficult to shift, even with diet and exercise.

Gold Coast CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting uses a process called cry lipolysis. It works by selectively freezing and subsequently damaging the fat cells underneath the skin. A proportion of the targeted fat cells are damaged beyond repair and subsequently die.  Over the course of 12 weeks your body naturally eliminates the dead fat cells.  There are no needles or surgery involved in the CoolSculpting procedure.

Why choose CoolSculpting Gold Coast?

Many people are genetically predisposed to storing fat in particular areas, even when they have a healthy diet and do regular exercise. CoolSculpting provides a non-invasive option to remove stubborn fat from these problem areas. Non-invasive means there are no needles, no surgery, no anaesthetic and no hospital stays. CoolSculpting takes between 35-75 minutes, depending on the area of the body being treated. You have the potential to return to normal activities immediately after the CoolSculpting procedure.

CoolSculpting can be used to treat a range of areas including:

  • Abdomen (tummy)
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Upper arms (bingo wings)
  • Brassiere roll (bra puff)
  • Back (bra fat)
  • Pseudogynaecomastia (man boobs)
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs (saddlebags)
  • Under the buttocks (banana rolls)

Who is suitable for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can be done on the majority of people who have stubborn pockets of fat despite having a reasonably healthy diet and regular exercise. Your first step is to contact Skin Clinic Robina and make an appointment for a complimentary consultation. You will be asked a number of questions during your consultation to ensure that CoolSculpting is right for you.

Does CoolSculpting have side effects?

The following effects can occur in the treatment area during and after a treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days.

During a treatment: 

  • Sensations of tugging and mild pinching.
  • Intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, cramping. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb.

Immediately after treatment: 

  • Redness and firmness.
  • Mild bruising around the edges of the treatment area.
  • Tingling and stinging.

One to two weeks after a treatment: 

  • Redness, bruising and swelling.
  • Tenderness, cramping and aching.
  • Itching, skin sensitivity, tingling and numbness. Numbness can persist up to several weeks after a treatment.Trained Technicians – Our CoolSculpting specialists undertake constant training to ensure there is a high standard of knowledge about the consultation process, the CoolSculpting procedure and aftercare support. They will consult with you to understand your needs and medical history and to determine if CoolSculpting is right for you.

Procedure precision – CoolSculpting technology delivers precisely the right level of controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin, whilst leaving the skin and other cells undamaged. This procedure in not invasive and does not use needles or surgery.

What can I expect?

During your complimentary CoolSculpting consultation our technicians will discuss your treatment goals and any past medical history that may impact your treatment.

You will then undertake a full 360 degree body assessment using applicator planning templates and a customised treatment plan will be designed specifically for you including the number of treatments required per body area to achieve your desired results. You will also be given a full quote and advise for how many treatments you can expect and ways that you can maximise your results.

Once you have had your consult, we will schedule an appointment and take photos that will be used to monitor your progress.

During treatment a thermal gel pad or gel and an applicator will be applied to the targeted area for 30-45 minutes.

Once the procedure starts you will feel an intense cold sensation then some minor tugging which usually subsides once the area becomes numb. Once the cooling is finished and applicators are removed it is important to have the treated area massaged for 2 – 5 minutes to help breakdown frozen fat cells which are then naturally eliminated by the body.

What can I expect after my treatment?

Everyone’s experience is different and depends on the area/s treated and the number of treatment cycles performed on the day. For some people, the area treated can feel a little swollen or numb. For others it might be red or bruised and may feel tender to touch. All of these effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days.

Minimal Downtime: As the CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-invasive, most people return to work and their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

Visible results: You may start to see results at 6 weeks and final results around 12 weeks after treatment. Specialised treatment plans may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results.
