Thinking about Coolsculpting your double chin or ‘chin fat’?. With the new Coolsculpting ‘mini applicators’ you can now say goodbye to your double chin for good. The medical term for a double chin is Submental fat. The most common cause is not weight gain but age.

As most people hit their thirties fat is stored certain areas. The chin is a favourite place for fat to hide!.

Fat can be reduced by up to 30% – making a huge difference in this small and highly visible area.

Coolsculpting is a popular and proven way for removing double chins. Coolsculpting by Zeltiq is also an FDA cleared cryolipolysis procedure.

If you are thinking about getting rid of your chin fat you may have researched liposuction or fat dissolving injections. The advantage of Coolsculpting is it is effective, gentler, non-invasive and a more affordable way to go about removing fat.

What happens during a coolsculpting chin fat session?

During your Coolsculpting session the applicator is carefully positioned and strapped into place. Once started your skin will being to feel very cold for the first few minutes before going what is described as going ‘pleasantly numb’.

You may experience a little discomfort during your session which should last around 35-45 minutes.

You will have to keep your head in one place with pillows helping you get comfortable.

After the fat freezing part finishes, your practitioner immediately massages the area to help break up your fat which has now crystallised. This optimises cell death.

How long do chin fat results take?

For a few hours afterwards your skin may appear pink. Your body will then go to work metabolising the damaged fat cells over the days, weeks and months ahead.

After ten days you should gradually begin to notice results. A month later you should keep seeing improvements. Your body is still removing fat from your session.

Full results should be realised after 3-4 months although your body will still produce results for up to 6 months.

How many sessions will i need?

For most people one or two sessions should be enough. Your practitioner will advise you based on your suitability.

How much does it cost

Prices for Coolsculpting range from £300 – £550 per session depending on the number of cycles required. Visit our Coolsculpting page for more pricing information.

Will my double chin return?

The fat cells are permanently removed never to return. Unlike dieting where they shrink waiting to return if you add weight.

If you maintain a healthy diet, active lifestyle and remain around your ideal weight your chin fat will not return.

Can Coolsculpting be used on the pubic area?

Home » Info Hub

Our bodies are formed to store fat to save energy. Sometimes we intake more energy than we can burn; which leads to fat being stored.

However, where we store fat is determined by our genetics. Some people store most of their excess fat on their abdomen, some store it mainly on their hip areas.

For some people, the excess fat can be also stored in the pubic area, also known as mons pubis.

Coolsculpting can be performed in this area. As the size of the area is smaller in comparison to the other coolsculpting areas, your clinician will use the smaller applicator. This will also provide an easier recovery time. And you will be able to go back to your daily activities immediately.

After each session, you can lose between 25-30% of the excess fat in the pubic area. Some clients prefer to have 2 sessions on the pubic area for best results.

To determine if your pubic area can be treated with coolsculpting, try to pinch the excess fat on the area. If you can squeeze it, coolsculpting can treat the area.

This is because enough fat needs to able to fit  into the coolsculpting applicator for it to work.

What average weight loss can I get with Coolsculpting?

Home » Info Hub

Coolsculpting is a fat reduction treatment, not a weight-loss method.

Coolsculpting is performed with special applicators with different sizes. And it targets the fat tissue on the specific area.

With applying cool temperatures on the target area, coolsculpting freezes the fat cells, breaks them, and the dead cells then leave the body in natural ways.

After the treatment, there is a 25-30% fat reduction on the treatment area. However, this doesn’t result in a significant weight loss.

Most of the weight loss treatments get rid of the fat, muscle and water from the body. And you will start seeing better results on the scale. But depending on your lifestyle and the area you’ve lost the majority of your weight, you can gain the weight back very easily. With traditional weight loss methods, to burn the fat, you would need to bring many different practices together. Such as low-calorie diet and fat burning high-intensity exercises. Even though you follow them religiously, you won’t only lose the fat. And some stubborn fat areas may not be affected.

However, coolsculpting only gets rid of your fat in the targeted area. Depending on the person, area, and the aftercare; results may vary. But after the treatment, you will only lose the fat tissue which is much more targeted results than any of weight loss methods.

With your coolsculpting results, you will also see a significant reduction on the size and measurement of the area.

Is there any scientific evidence Coolsculpting works?

Home » Info Hub

Many pieces of research and key studies have been carried out by reputable health authorities for cryolipolysis.

In the clinical studies, the experiments showed that the cryolipolysis treatments reduce the bulk fat at the treatment site by up to 25-30% after only one treatment.

Within the current non-invasive fat reduction treatments, fat freezing has been found as the most effective option with minimal discomfort.

Even if someone is following a healthy diet and regular exercise, the body’s response to the daily activities might depend on the metabolism, age, gender, and other factors. And sometimes no matter how much you work towards them, some bulk fat tissue can form on the certain areas of the body. It is often very hard to get rid of and is highly resistant.

Coolsculpting treatment is based on the discovery that the fat cells can be permanently damaged by the cold temperature without harming the surrounding skin, tissue, or other organs. [MOU1]

The main reason that Coolsculpting is highly effective on stubborn fat is that it directly targets the excess fat. [MOU2]

The temperature that coolsculpting performs is cold enough for the fat bulges to freeze and the fat cells to die. But the treatment is also safe on the other parts of the body.

During the treatment, a gel pad is placed on the treatment area. Which protect the skin from any damage such as frostbite or permanent bruising.

And if you are worried about the coolsculpting to damage your inner organs, you don’t have to worry. The cold temperature can only affect the fat tissue.

During your consultation, your clinician will make sure that you have enough fat tissue to perform the procedure. If the fat tissue is not thick enough, the treatment will not be performed in that area.

You can make sure that the cold is only going to affect the fat cells. To see if you can have coolsculpting treatment on any part of your body if you can squeeze the fat on the area, coolsculpting can treat.

Coolsculpting is an FDA cleared treatment. FDA is reliable for protecting the public health by ensuring the food, drugs, medical devices, cosmetics etc. are safe for consumption and use. [MOU3]

Getting FDA clearance means that coolsculpting treatment has been reviewed and tested by the Food and Drug Administration. And it is cleared as the treatment and the machine is effective, up to standard and safe to perform.

Coolsculpting results week by week

Home » Info Hub

Coolsculpting treatment destroys fat cells permanently and provides up to 25-30% fat reduction.

On 35 min sessions, coolsculpting freezes off the excess fat cells. The fat cells die, they get thrown out from the body in natural ways.

The first results can be seen after the first coolsculpting treatment is usually after 1 month.

You can see the dramatic changes within the first 1-3 months. However, the final results can take up to 6 months.

After your treatment, you can follow some easy steps to increase the effectiveness of the treatment. Such as;

  • Massaging the treatment area as much and as intense as you can
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Follow a healthy diet

What to expect after your coolsculpting treatment

1 Week after your treatment

Coolsculpting treatment may cause mild discomfort and numbness on the treatment area. Some swelling may occur.

It is normal for these effects to continue on the first week after your treatment.

2 Weeks after your treatment

The swelling, discomfort and numbness on the area are usually gone by the second week of your treatment.

During the first and second weeks, you can massage the treatment area as often and intense as you can for better results.

You will see the swelling disappear, but it is unlikely to start seeing the coolsculpting results as yet.

4 weeks after your treatment

You should start feeling more comfortable in your clothes. Depending on the area you had your coolsculpting treatment, you can start to see new contours on your body.

2-3 months after your treatment

After the 3rd month of the coolsculpting treatment, our clients report the most dramatic changes.

The results may vary from person to person.

However, at this stage, you should be seeing the results easily.

4-6 months after your treatment

For most of the coolsculpting clients, fat reduction continues up to 6 months. So you can still record further results.

This will be elevated when supported by a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise.

Most of our clients prefer coolsculpting as a part of their body transformation journey.

Coolsculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. It directly targets the stubborn fat. Hence, when it is combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, the results will maximise.

7-12 months

For some clients, the fat loss process may still continue up to 12 months.

If you are looking for further fat loss, you can have your second coolsculpting session at this stage for maximum results.

Can I use Coolsculpting on scar tissue?

Home » Info Hub

Coolsculpting creates controlled cooling targeting the fat tissue under the skin.

During your treatment, your clinician places a gel on the treatment area. This creates a protective barrier between your skin and the coolsculpting applicator.

While cool sculpting treatment is freezing your excess fat on the treatment area, your skin remains unaffected.

If you have a scar tissue on the area you would like to have coolsculpting treatment, you don’t have to worry. If your scar is old, there is usually nothing to worry at all.

However, the scarred area can be sometimes avoided as well. For example, if the scar is really fresh, in order to not to disturb or affect the tissue, your clinician may recommend to either wait for the scar to get older or fully avoid the scar tissue area.

Before each coolsculpting treatment, our experienced practitioners give you a full consultation. Please make sure to discuss all your concerns with them during your consultation.

Does coolsculpting help with stretch marks?

Home » Info Hub

Stretch marks occur when the skin gets stretched by a rapid pull or growth.

Our skin is quite elastic. However, with a fast weight gain, pregnancy, bodybuilding or some surgeries, skin gets pulled significantly faster than it can produce enough collagen to stretch.

Coolsculpting freezes the excessive fat tissue under the skin. But it doesn’t affect the skin itself.

During your coolsculpting treatment, your expert place a gel pad between the coolsculpting applicator and your skin. This way any unwanted skin side effects will be eliminated. And the applicator doesn’t touch your skin directly.

There are many stretch mark removal methods available. The treatments work through creating monitored damage on the skin and promotes collagen production on the skin. While your skin works on repairing the current damage, your stretch marks also get repaired by new collagen your skin produces.

However, coolsculpting does not damage or effect your skin in any form. Hence, it will not help with stretch marks or any other skin concern.

What’s the difference between Coolsculpting vs Liposuction?

Home » Info Hub

While a healthy diet and regular exercise are essential to health and wellness, many people experience stubborn fat on some parts of their bodies.

Both coolsculpting and liposuction target the areal fat on one’s body. They are not ‘weight loss’ procedures. Both reduce the excess fat permanently.

We’ve compared coolsculpting and liposuction under different sides for you.

Noticeable results

Coolsculpting results start getting visible after a few weeks. You will be able to see the dramatic results after 2 months. However, your body will keep flushing the fat cells up to 6 months of your treatment.

Most liposuction clients begin to see results within 1-3 months after the surgery; once the post-operative swelling goes down.

Final results of liposuction can take up to 6-12 months.

Side effects

Coolsculpting is a non-invasive procedure and side effects are usually minor and temporary. Such as temporary swelling, bruise and mild pain. You can read more about coolsculpting side effects here.

Liposuction is an invasive surgery performed under anaesthesia. The possible side effects may include post-operative swelling, blood clots, and negative reactions to anaesthesia or some other complications.

If you are suffering from heart problems or blood clotting disorders, you should avoid liposuction.

Effectiveness

Coolsculpting can reduce fat cells by up to 30%. After seeing your final results, you can book another session of coolsculpting treatment for further fat removal.

With liposuction, the maximum amount of fat that can be removed is around 3-4 litres (6-8 pounds). Removing more than that is generally considered as not safe. And it should be noted that the greater the volume of fat removal with liposuction will bring a greater risk of serious complications.

Liposuction provides more dramatic results than other non-invasive fat reduction procedures. However, it requires surgery under anaesthesia, may lead to serious health conditions and has a longer and more tense recovery time.

Treatment Areas

Coolsculpting machine has different sized applicators which makes it suitable for many areas. If you can pinch the excess fat, coolsculpting can treat the area.

The most common coolsculpting areas are as follows;

  • under the chin
  • upper arm
  • abdomen
  • flank
  • knees
  • back
  • bra fat
  • love handle
  • Underneath the buttocks (or banana rolls)
  • thighs

Liposuction machine has different size of tubes, which makes it suitable for different areas of the body. The most common areas for liposuction treatment are;

  • abdomen
  • breasts
  • hips
  • thighs
  • knees
  • arms
  • buttocks
  • cheeks
  • neck

Recovery time

After your coolsculpting treatment, you can go back to your normal daily life immediately.

It usually takes around 2 weeks to fully recover after liposuction. And because you get general anaesthesia with liposuction, someone will need to spend the first 24 hours with you in case there are any complications.

Cost

Coolsculpting prices are calculated per cycle. The most common coolsculpting cycle number for stomach in the UK is 4.

At Premier Laser & Skin clinics we have an introductory offer where you can book 4 cycles of coolsculpting only for £1800 (which is around 10% lower than other London clinics offering coolsculpting.

Liposuction prices depend on the area treated. For stomach area liposuction in London, the cost is around £3500-£4000.

What diet should I have after Coolsculpting?

Home » Info Hub

Coolsculpting will freeze the fat cells and help to flush them out in natural ways.

However, coolsculpting is not a weight loss technique. It is a fat removal procedure.

Gaining weight after your coolsculpting procedure will reverse its effects. So you should be careful with your diet and exercise after your treatment to make sure you don’t gain weight and make your treatment go to waste.

We strongly recommend following a healthy diet after our coolsculpting treatment. Such as a balanced diet consisting of fruit, vegetables, lean protein, and whole grains. And to stay away from processed and junk food.

Many of our clients prefer coolsculpting as a part of their body perfection journey. Complimenting the treatment with regular exercise and a healthy diet will support you to get the best results from your coolsculpting treatment.
