London cryolipolysis providers have benefitted in the last year from a whole new range of applicators from CoolSculpting by Zeltiq, which have opened up several new areas that can be treated, including common areas of concern like the chin and upper arm, as well as ‘banana rolls’ on the buttocks.
Cryolipolysis can seem like an intimidating term, but is very simple to break down. It comes from the Greek words cryo (cold), lipo (fat), and lysis (dissolve), and uses straightforward, proven effective technology of freezing fat for targeted reduction. It is a non-surgical alternative to traditional surgical liposuction, and is non-invasive, meaning downtime and recovery is greatly reduced, with noticeable results from just one treatment.
London Cryolipolysis Areas
CoolSculpting was the first FDA-cleared cryolipolysis device, and with a 79% satisfaction rate on realself.com, boasts a plethora of stunning results for targeted fat reduction. The original applicator works on larger areas like the love handles, thighs, back, and stomach, and the newly introduced range increase these abilities further.
CoolAdvantage Petite – a specific upper arm fat (‘bingo wings’) reducer, with a smaller session time of just 35 minutes, for a true lunchtime treatment.
CoolMini – approved for targeting fat below the chin, or submental fat, this specific applicator has an 86% satisfaction rating on realself.com and is praised for its ability to reduce the appearance of the neck and chin in a range of patients.
London Cryolipolysis on Harley Street
Our team of highly trained aestheticians perform cryolipolysis at PHI Clinic, with our before and afters found on the CoolSculpting treatment page and our Instagram. Within your consultation, you will be assessed by one of our experienced clinicians, who will discuss whether you are suitable for treatment, and outline a comprehensive treatment plan based on your needs and expectations which will include any costings.
This appointment, or set of appointments for those having more than one cycle, will then be booked by one of our friendly staff. You will always be treated by the same practitioner who performed your consultation, who will set the treatment up and be on call for you should you need them during your 35- or 60-minute session.
Cryolipolysis should not be used as an alternative to traditional weight loss, and should be accompanied by a healthy diet and exercise regime. Certain conditions can affect the way you react to cryolipolysis technology, meaning fat freezing may not be the best course of treatment, but other fat reduction techniques are available at PHI Clinic.
Any worries or questions you have should be expressed at your initial consultation, which incurs a fee of £50 for new patients, though this is redeemable against the price of any treatment you have.
