We all want to look our best and feel great, and that means achieving that perfect body that we always dream of. As with anything in life, achieving that ideal look and fit lifestyle takes time and effort, and it doesn’t come easy. After years of training and working hard, you feel confident and content with your face, arms, and legs—and then, out of nowhere, you get a stomach or thigh swelling or drooping, and you start to question how much you used to enjoy life.
The sad truth is that some parts of your body have stubborn fat deposits that are harder to burn. Places like your chin, claves, and your stomach are such places. Even with proper diet and exercise, you’ll be hard-pressed to burn them off.
At this point, you may be wondering what can you do to get rid of these fat cells. Well thankfully here in Melbourne, Skin Clubs doctors now offer treatments to help get rid of that extra fat. Among our many procedure options, one of our best is Melbourne Coolsculpting. Using some of the latest cooling technology, a Coolsculpting treatment can help eliminate any fat you want to go.

Coolsculpting Treatment by SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that can safely and effectively remove stubborn fat deposits. This treatment has been reviewed and approved by the FDA. It works by freezing fat cells in a treated area to eliminate them. This treatment is also known as Fat Freezing treatment, cryolipolysis, and controlled Cooling. Regardless of what you call it though, this treatment is one of the most advanced in Melbourne.
CoolSculpting certainly isn’t the only procedure that can remove fat cells. Other treatments like liposuction, fat transfer, and fat grafting do exist and are available for you to use. However, that does not mean that fat freezing is not without benefits. There are many reasons to choose it over other procedures for your fat reduction treatment.
Probably the biggest advantage it has is that it does not require surgical treatment. For many people, there is no point in removing the extra fat cells if you are going to end up with scars after. This means that you do not have to worry about going under the knife to achieve the results you want. Like liposuction, Coolsculpting is a form of non-invasive fat reduction and only requires a few small incisions to achieve its goal. This means it can target love handles and fat bulges without leaving large scars.
Like other surgical treatments, the results from a CoolSculpting procedure are permanent. This means that if you reduce fat cells in a certain area, whether it be your outer thighs, double chin, or upper arms, they will be gone for good. The treatment works on a fat cell by freezing it and letting your body absorb it.
However, we say semi-permanent because while all current fat cells in the treatment area are destroyed, there is nothing to stop new ones from developing. This is why doctors urge things like exercise as part of your treatment plan to ensure the best results. The same can be said with surgery and other treatments that Melbourne clinics offer.
Another advantage of cryolipolysis is that it is much more versatile in where it can go compared to other treatments. For example, it can treat different areas of your body that other treatments cannot do. Surgery for example is less viable in a treatment area near your Lymphatic system or nerves. This means it can go to places like your double chin, abdomen, and love handles.
This is in part to it being a not invasive procedure. Since there is no surgery involved, you also have a much shorter recovery period after a controlled cooling treatment. This means no serious side effects that can stop you from continuing normal activities. So if your concern is safety, this is also the treatment for youThis is especially useful in busy cities like Melbourne where patients don’t always have a lot of downtime. At most, the whole thing could be a few weeks while in the shortest, it can be a few days.
If you have to deal with extra fat, your first instinct is probably a weight loss plan geared around exercise and a diet and normally this process should work fine. In most cases, you should be able to see results within a few weeks. However, the issue is during cases when this doesn’t work. For example, there are some parts of your body where you cannot achieve the results you want naturally.
Areas in your body such as your chin, upper arms, love handles, and thighs where you cannot always achieve the results naturally. Because of that one of the CoolSculpting uses is to find these areas and target the fat cells there. While surgery can do the same time, for many that are an extreme step to make given how invasive the treatment is.
Like most places in Melbourne, the Skin Club clinic starts with medical consultation. Here our surgeon will meet with you as an expert and patient to discuss this treatment. Here they will review your medical records, looking for any medical conditions or previous treatments that would see if you are suitable for a Coolsculpting procedure.
If they find that there is nothing wrong, they will then talk about the treatment plan. They will show how the CoolScupting works, what are the risks, and the changes in your appearance. One thing they want to make clear about this treatment though is that it is not a substitute for weight loss. This is why our doctors will always ask about diet and exercise first during a consultation.
In that vein, the doctor will also as about your expectations from this treatment. After all, whether you are suitable is more than just if you can take the surgery but also if you want it. This is also your chance to bring up any concerns you might have about the Coolsculpting treatment.
Before you are approved of Coolsculpting, another thing you have to settle with your surgeon is the payment for the fat-freezing treatment. Right from the start of your consultation, your doctor will explain the costs of Coolsculpting. The exact price tag can vary, of course, depending on several factors such as the location of the controlled cooling, the number of fat cells, plus the expenses in doctors fees, technology, and the cooling device. However, on average, most clinics charge somewhere around $2000-4000.
For patients, they can also use this time to discuss their financial situation and to see if this is within their budget. It is important to remember that this is a cosmetic procedure which means that your insurance will probably not cover it since it is seen as a luxury rather than a necessity. This means you are on your own there.
Instead, most clinics can help arrange a payment plan for your procedure. Here they can let you pay with installments and maybe even cover certain expenses.
After the consultation and if you both agree, the doctor will proceed with the fat freezing procedure. This can be several days to several weeks apart depending on the doctors’ availability.
The process starts with the doctor waving a small device over the area they will treat for fat reduction. This is the handheld device has small applicators like that of a vacuum cleaner. This is the CoolSculpting Cooler applicator is placed in the desired body area. This is a device that will deliver a thin layer of cold radiofrequency energy is delivered to the fat cells.
The purpose of fat is to act as storage for your body, keeping extra energy in case you need it. One use of them is to provide warmth during cool temperatures. This is why applying the applicator over the area, will force the fat into action, having them begin using the stored up energy.
Over your body, the doctors will place a gel bad so that it will not harm your skin underneath. After that, the doctor can begin to move the applicator around to different parts of your body with a lot of fat cells. They can use this fat-freezing treatment almost anywhere in your body. CoolSculpting has many treated areas such as.
The best part of Coolsculpting is that like other non-surgical treatments, this leaves little to no mark since it does not need to physically cut you open. Even liposuction requires. a small incision unlike this. To make the procedure more effective, some clinics in Melbourn keep a spare applicator ready so they can treat multiple areas at once.
While you receive the procedure, you may experience a slight tugging sensation and occasionally some pinches this is normal. This means the machine is working but do not be alarmed as there should be little pain from the process.
The treatments time can range in time depending on how much fat they need to remove. However, this is normally around 1-3 hours. Since fat freezing doesn’t involve any surgery, doctors do not give anesthesia for it. To pass the time, there are several things you can do like reading or listening to music. Some patients even work while they undergo CoolSculpting.
After the initial procedure, doctors then begin massaging the area to break apart any stubborn fat cells that remain. This is because even holes from, they are now in solid mass which can be difficult to deal with.
Although some people find the massage strange, it is necessary for the process. Once they are broken into smaller pieces, this makes it easier for your body to eliminate the individual fat cells.
It is important to remember that cryolipolysis does not get rid of the fat in a single treatment. You can require some visits before you can get rid of everything. Just how many treatments all depends on how much fat needs to be treated and how stubborn these pockets are.
Smaller areas like outer thighs and a double chin can be treated in a single session, while others like love handles may require multiple. These sessions are spaced several weeks apart to give patients a chance to recover from the applicator.
However, even if you opt for a single session in your treatment plan, the effect is still not instantaneous. It takes time for the full effects of the cooling technology to become visible. Normally this takes around 3-4 months for the treated area to fully shrink down.
With the fat cells now using up their stored energy, it causes them to shrink and ultimately die. Over time, this technology can result in thinned areas of treated fat, leading to a smoother, contoured look.
A common misconception that we have to address is the idea of weight loss from this procedure. This is because some people believe that this treatment can be a method of losing weight which it cannot. Although it sounds strange, CoolSculpting can remove fat, but not lose weight, at least not as much as you may expect.
This is because when it targets the fat cells it eliminates them, it only does so in a certain area. The other fall cells across your body are not affected in any way and often if you are on the larger side, these fat cells are also quite large.
Another reason why the sessions of Cryolipolyssi are spread apart is to give your time to recover and monitor for any side effects. Both of these can affect whether you can continue the procedure so most clinics in Melbourne tend to monitor you after even if you go home.
Generally speaking, recovery from procedures like this is a fairly simple process. You have almost no downtime to worry about and can go home or return to work almost immediately after the treatment.
All that doctors ask is that you do not push yourself too hard. Even without surgery, your body still needs time to adjust to the treatment so you shouldn’t do anything physical. Another reason for this is because when you sweat or do something strenuous, it causes your clothes to rub up against each other which can irritate your skin, especially if you have some redness.
This also means avoiding hot or cold showers and instead only using water at room temperature. Doctors also strongly urge you to stay hydrated as this can also help break down the fat cells much faster.
Another thing to look out for after Coolsculpting is in regards to side effects. Although it is one of the safest treatments out there, side effects will still take place as they do in any medical procedure. The difference is these side effects tend to be milder than most.
Unsuringpinly after being exposed to the cold you can expect some chilliness. This is not a serious chilliness that can get you sick, but more of a sensitivity to cold temperatures that require you to wear a jacket or leave you shivering.
Another common issue you will encounter is redness around the areas they treated. along with the redness itself, this can be accompanied by swelling and maybe some tenderness. This leaves your skin rather sensitive so you should be careful with those areas. This is why doctors strongly suggest avoiding extreme temperature or strenuous activity.
Another issue is cramping after being exposed to the applicator which can cause your skin to feel strained and cramped. This can make it hard to perform some activities and doctors suggest taking some downtime until you’re back to normal.
