Here at Qutis Clinics, in Oxfordshire and Hertfordshire we pride ourselves in offering our patients the safest most effective treatments which is why we have chosen to partner with CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is the only fat freezing device that has FDA clearance and CE marking, the highest safety certifications for medical devices.
CoolSculpting delivers carefully controlled cooling to target your fat cells, beneath the surface of the skin. These cells are frozen and permanently destroyed and then removed by your body's natural processes.
This makes CoolSculpting treatment ideal for stubborn areas where it is difficult for you to remove fat by dieting alone.
Research has proved that as this video shows a single treatment can actually remove up to 27% of fat cells after 6 months. We find patients can see and feel results after 12 weeks. In normal weight loss the number of fat cells does not change, they just get smaller.
CoolSculpting is a relatively painless procedure with very little downtime and you can continue your normal routine immediately after treatment. It is a popular alternative to liposuction as it offers no surgery, no scars and no sagging skin.
Your CoolSculpting journey with Qutis…
Here at Qutis Clinics we have been treating patients with CoolSculpting for over 2 years and have performed 300 treatments.
We are committed to giving our patients truly transformative results, therefore in addition to initial training, our team has completed the international advanced training programme “CoolSculpting Education”.
CoolSculpting is offered in two of our clinics. Our Oxfordshire clinic is in the pretty market town of Thame and our Hertfordshire clinic is in the private and tranquil location of Marchmont Farm, Piccotts End.
At both locations you will be consulted by our CoolSculpting Senior Nurse who will listen to your concerns and goals and help you understand how CoolSculpting can transform your body.
A private, full body assessment will take place using multiple applicators to choose which size compliments your figure best and together you will decide upon the best bespoke treatment plan.
Your treatment will take place in the privacy of our CoolSculpting suite by one of our CoolSculpting Specialists who are committed to treating you with ultimate comfort. During your treatment we offer you lunch, a wide range of teas and coffees and you may want to bring a book or to watch a movie.
You will leave with our personalised Qutis aftercare kit and we will follow up with you throughout your journey as you will be experiencing some changes throughout. We will see you again in 12 weeks.
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes you typically feel intense cold. This should soon dissipate. With some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. After the treatment, you may feel some tingling as the area is massaged for approximately 2 minutes. Patients are usually able to return to normal activities following their appointment. The treated area may feel slightly numb for a few days.
CoolSculpting has thermal event protection technology, which prevents ‘freeze burn.’ No other fat freezing technology has this. The CoolSculpting technology takes the fat cells down to -11° which is the optimal temperature at which fat cells are permanently destroyed. CoolSculpting is the only machine with FDA* clearance. The CoolSculpting machine has built-in ‘freeze detection’ sensors that monitor changes in the skin and shutting down the CoolSculpting machine if the skin temperature starts to cool too much. There is a patented thermal coupling gel pad which is applied to the surface of the skin before the applicator to ensure consistent thermal contact during treatment. CoolSculpting is different from other non-or minimally invasive fat reduction modalities as other methods remove fat primarily damaging fat with heat or high intensity focused ultrasound or even sub-optimal freezing. Other fat removal approaches pose potential technical challenges particularly with respect to targeting the right tissue depth and causing unintended damage to other structures close to or within the fat layer. CoolSculpting cryolipolysis procedure induces fat cell death only to gently and gradually reduce the fat layer while preserving all other tissues such as skin and muscle. To the best of our knowledge, there is no other device that is both ‘FDA cleared’ and has a large enough patient base to show safety and efficacy. There have been over 3 million CoolSculpting treatments done around the world and many of the lookalike machines do not have FDA clearance and do not have the safety information or studies on the efficacy that CoolSculpting has. *The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) examines, tests, and approves a wide range of items for medical use, including drugs and medical appliances. In the simplest terms, “FDA approval” means that the FDA has decided the benefits of the approved item outweigh the potential risks for the item's planned use. Not all medical equipment has this approval and FDA approval is seen as the gold standard in terms of safety.
The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA approved for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over one million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.
The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
Many patients, after seeing their results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.
Your CoolSculpting® practitioner will help you create an individualised treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting treatment will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. The latest technology of CoolSculpting® can treat a patient within 60 minutes. Your practitioner will explain the process and establish if this is a suitable option for you. You and your practitioner may also schedule additional treatments in order to meet your goals.
During your initial consultation, your practitioner will ask about your medical history to establish if CoolSculpting® could be right for you. It's important to tell them if you have cryoglobulinaemia, cold agglutinin disease or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria, as you should not have CoolSculpting® if you suffer from any of these conditions.
Good candidates have noticeable fat bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Oftentimes, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.
No supplements or pills are required and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.
The cost of treatment depends mostly on you and what treatment outcome you would like to achieve. In consultation with your practitioner you will discuss your treatment plan and you'll be given the cost. Treatment is rarely on the same day, however if you do wish to go ahead we advise booking as soon as possible so that we can accommodate your appointment needs.
