CoolSculpting: Start treatment now for the body you desire by summer 

Gold Coast CoolSculpting

Although the days are still chilly and the tourists haven’t arrived, summer is coming soon, and that means it’s time to start thinking about swimsuit season. Instead of spending lunches picking lettuce and evenings at the gym, try something different this spring. Using advanced fat freezing technology, CoolSculpting targets diet and exercise-resistant fat on areas that are particularly hard to lose, like the hips and handles.

CoolSculpting, or cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical body contouring procedure. Plastic surgeons use a device to freeze fat cells under the skin. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are gradually broken down by the liver and eliminated from the body.

How CoolSculpting is done

During the CoolSculpting treatment, a gel pad and applicator will be placed on your skin. The device will then provide controlled cooling to the targeted area. You may feel temporary numbness at the start of treatment. Most CoolSculpting treatments last about 45 minutes, although some may take longer depending on the area(s) you treated. Once the treatment is complete, you may see a significant reduction in the amount of fat in the treated area. Results are usually visible in about 30 days, with your maximum response visible after three months. As long as you maintain a steady weight, the results are permanent.


Although research is still limited, CoolSculpting has generally considered a safer and more non-invasive type of slimming surgery than traditional procedures, such as liposuction.

Most people don’t feel anything during this process other than a pulling sensation when the skin is between the device’s two cooling pads.

Because the procedure doesn’t involve any cutting, tissue manipulation, or anesthesia, most people don’t need any recovery time and can return to their normal activities immediately.

The only noticeable side effects of the procedure tend to be minor and occur only around the treatment area. Most minor side effects will lessen or go away a few days to a few weeks after the procedure. Common immediate side effects of CoolSculpting include:

  • Tingling
  • Numbness
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Mild to moderate pain
  • Muscle cramping
  • Minor swelling
  • Tenderness 
  • Bruising 
  • Stinging 
  • Redness
  • Firmness
  • Pinching sensation

Benefits of CoolSculpting

  • CoolSculpting has been shown to be an effective treatment for fat loss in problem areas. It is also a non-invasive procedure. That means no needles, no anesthesia, and no surgery. The CoolSculpting procedure uses controlled cooling to target and freezes fat cells, without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. The treatment can take as little as 45 minutes and has no downtime.
  • As an adult, your body can no longer form new fat cells. However, the bust you have can get bigger or smaller depending on your weight and eating habits. Gold Coast CoolSculpting provides a non-invasive method to permanently destroy one percent of fat cells, thereby reducing the total fat mass in the treatment area.
  • CoolSculpting can help you feel more confident. After treatment, you will look and feel better about yourself. You can wear the clothes you want and confidently show off your body.


Now that you understand how the CoolSculpting procedure works, you know why you shouldn’t wait for a body contouring treatment. By planning ahead and performing fat freezing now, you’ll be ready to get the body you’ve always dreamed of this summer.
