With over 8 million treatments performed worldwide, people have been turning to Coolsculpting Elite as an effective way to rid themselves of stubborn fat, without facing needles or going under the knife.

The CoolSculpting Elite procedure uses controlled cooling to target fat cells underneath the skin. Treated cells become frozen and, over time, are naturally processed and eliminated by the body. Freezing temperatures only affect the targeted fat cells, leaving the surrounding area of skin damage-free. Patients may see reductions after as little as two treatments.
At Harpenden Skin Clinic, CoolSculpting Elite procedures are performed by qualified, trained and experienced members of our team. Before treatments commence, patients will undergo an in-depth consultation. Consultants will create a treatment plan unique to the patient based on their individual face and body goals, and will talk through the procedure in detail.
CoolSculpting is designed to target stubborn, unwanted fat. The treatment is perfect for anyone who has noticeable bulges, or areas of the face or body that will not reduce through healthy lifestyle alone. CoolSculpting Elite is not a weight loss solution or treatment for obesity.
The length of your CoolSculpting Elite procedure will depend on the number of areas you have opted to treat. This is something to discuss with your consultant at the time you create your unique treatment plan. On average, treatment timing starts from a minimum of 1 hour upwards. CoolSculpting Elite is non-invasive, meaning there is no downtime after the procedure has been performed – you can get straight back to your day.
During the procedure, patients sometimes experience the feeling of pulling, intense cold or tingling; however, these sensations should subside as the targeted area becomes numb.
Following the procedure, patients may experience redness, swelling bruising or skin sensitivity. These side effects are only temporary. The feeling of numbness can persist for a couple of weeks but will eventually subside.
The natural process of flushing out frozen fat cells can take time. In most cases, results can be seen between two and six months following the treatment. Please note that several treatments are recommended for optimal results. Destroying fat cells does not stop remaining cells from expanding with weight gain so it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to keep those results permanent.
The process of CoolSculpting treatment begins with a consultation. During this initial stage, the patient and medical professional discuss the areas of concern and desired outcomes. The medical professional will evaluate if the patient is a good candidate for CoolSculpting, taking into account factors like overall health, body type, and skin condition. Once eligibility is determined, the actual treatment commences. The targeted area is marked and a protective gel pad is applied to protect the skin. The CoolSculpting device is then applied, which delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells underneath the skin. This process crystallizes the fat cells, causing them to die and be naturally eliminated from the body over time. The procedure typically lasts about an hour per treated area, during which patients can read, work on their laptops, or even nap. There’s minimal discomfort and recovery time, making CoolSculpting a popular choice for non-invasive fat reduction.
