While headlines about obesity and health risks associated with excess weight are quite commonplace these days, there is never much talk about those who have smaller pockets of fat, like stubborn belly fat, who simply need a helping hand to shift the last few extra pounds. Sometimes exercise and a healthy diet just won’t cut it, and you need that little extra help to get you to your desired outcome.
When people think about aesthetic medicine, they often think that invasive surgeries are the only option out there, which puts a lot of people off seeking help. However, there are more and more non-surgical treatments becoming available which eliminate the need for surgery and anaesthesia with very short recovery times.
Treatment at PHI Clinic on Harley Street
PHI Clinic houses a wide range of treatments which aim to tackle a plethora of conditions and indications. We believe in offering all-encompassing innovative procedures which means that patients can address as many concerns as possible in one place. We are always researching, expanding, and adapting to new treatment options and technologies which best serve our patients and their needs.
How to Get Rid of Belly Fat 101
CoolSculpting is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure which uses cryolipolysis technology to freeze fatty deposits. Without using a needle or scalpel, this non-surgical option has a 95% patient satisfaction score and minimal downtime. The treated cells are crystallised and over time your body’s natural defences break down the fat and flush it from your system while leaving the skin intact.
The procedure itself is relatively straightforward and can take as little as 35 minutes out of your day. Patients are invited to sit back and relax while the cryo packs work on breaking down the fat in our new CoolSculpting pods, equipped with music and television to keep you entertained during treatment.
For best results, patients will need a few cycles which concentrate on the same area each session. The main areas that can be treated with the CoolSculpting device are the flanks, abdomen (belly fat), inner thigh, love handles, and bingo wings (arm fat).
In order to determine how many sessions you will need and to give you a guideline on your suitability for treatment, an initial consultation is required at PHI Clinic with one of our aestheticians. They can answer any questions you may have and go through the appropriate medical history.
