Freeze away fat? It comes down to science. Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than surrounding tissues. CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. The treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), and then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. The CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately.

As the centre of excellence for non-surgical rejuvenation, River Aesthetics is the only clinic in Dorset to provide CoolSculpting treatments. Previous studies have shown that 61% of people feel that they have excess fat on areas of their face and body. Thighs, arms, and the abdomen are the areas in which many patients carry additional weight.
With data showing that 83% of people are willing to invest in their appearance, River Aesthetics has a non-invasive solution. CoolSculpting triggers a process called apoptosis, which is a form of programmed cell death. It is a treatment that was developed by scientists at Harvard and is only administered by medical led clinics. Results will be visible 6 weeks post treatment, with optimum results at 12 weeks.
Every patient is given a bespoke treatment plan tailored to their needs. Our doctors will provide a clinical recommendation on the areas that can be treated and how many times they should undergo the procedure. Before the treatment begins, the appropriate applicator will be selected, with 4 different attachments available for use. They include:
Once the area(s) have been selected, we will position the device on your body and apply a gel pad and applicator. The controlled cooling process begins by igniting the vacuum applicators, which draw fatty tissue into the applicator cup. During this, you may feel slight pulling and mild pinching, but you will remain comfortable throughout.
The body sculpting treatment targets fat cells that are too stubborn to shift despite having a healthy diet and undertaking regular exercise. The fat cells in patients that lose weight change, but rather than disappear, they just decrease in size. Generally, when a person loses or gains weight, the number of fat cells are not altered, they either decrease or increase in size.
By undergoing CoolSculpting treatment, patients can remove these fat cells for good. Clinical studies have shown that the treatment reduces the number of fat cells by up to 27% after 6 months. Given that the cells are naturally eliminated over time, there is no risk of them migrating to untreated areas of your body.
