CoolSculpting, also knowns as cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical treatment which uses cold to reduce or remove fat cells in targeted body areas by freezing them -11 degrees Celsius. This destroys the cells and, through time, they are eliminated by the body’s own natural processes.
The procedure only affects the specific areas treated, and the advanced technology used by CoolSculpting treatment means that there is no requirement to have any kind of anaesthetic or surgery. In addition, there is no downtime required after the treatment.
During the 35-45 minutes that a CoolSculpting session takes, unwanted areas of fat are reduced and removed. The results will start to become apparent within the first few weeks after the procedure, with the final results showing at around 12 weeks. CoolSculpting permanently destroys the fat cells in a particular area, so they will not return. With no recovery time required, you are able to continue with your usual daily routine following treatment.
There is no need to worry about needles or anaesthetic with a fat freezing treatment, and all you will feel will be a mild tingling and numbness while you are having the procedure. CoolSculpting is suitable for both men and women and can be used to treat areas including the thighs, buttocks, stomach, back, flanks and chin.
It is important to weigh up the risks involved against the benefits that the treatment can bring – just as with all types of medical aesthetic treatment.
Your medical aesthetic practitioner will talk you through any risks and complications, although possible side effects are usually minimal. They include a tingling and mild pinching feeling during the procedure.
CoolSculpting could be right for you if you are struggling to shift certain pockets of fat despite eating a healthy diet and exercising. This procedure can help you achieve the results you want.
In order to best achieve this, your BMI should be no higher than 30, and you should live a healthy lifestyle. During your consultation with us, your medical aesthetic practitioner will take details of your medical history which will allow us to understand if CoolSculpting treatment will be right for you.
We understand that every patient’s requirements are different, and so treatment will be tailored specifically to you. As a responsible provider of medical aesthetics, we place a great deal of importance on our free, no-obligation consultations.
Your practitioner will provide a detailed pricing overview for your treatment following your consultation process.

Your journey step by step
Your journey with The Hospital Group begins with a consultation with our friendly medical aesthetic practitioners, this may be an Aesthetician, Nurse Practitioner or Doctor. During this conversation you can talk through why you’re interested in this treatment, how much it costs, whether you’re suitable for treatment, if you’ll need a one off treatment, or a full course, as well as potential treatment dates.
You can ask our medical aesthetic practitioners any questions as they are extremely knowledgeable and have undertaken extensive training. If you feel ready to proceed, we can carry out a laser patch test (where applicable) and book your first treatment for a date and time that suits you.
You can ask your medical aesthetic practitioner any final questions on the day of the treatment. All pre- and post-treatment advice will be discussed prior to the day itself, so you will know exactly what to expect during your treatment, including how long it will take, and how it will feel.
For most medical aesthetic treatments, you will be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment has been completed, and you should be able to go about your normal day-to-day activities. If you experience any mild discomfort, redness or swelling, this will subside within the following days. Any specific aftercare requirements will be discussed at your consultation.
