Coolsculpting Treatments



Coolsculpting® is an FDA-approved innovative fat-freezing process, known as cryolipolysis, that destroys fatty deposits in a highly targeted way giving the treated area a smooth, contoured appearance by reducing fat. Patients see amazing results after just two treatments with no surgery or downtime! Coolsculpting results are long-lasting and, once treated, the fat cells are gone forever.

The First Clinic in Dorset to Offer CoolSculpting treatments!

Freeze fat away! The Coolsculpting® treatment uses controlled cooling of up to -11c to trigger a natural inflammatory process, called apoptosis, to safely target and eliminate diet & exercise resistant fat with little or no downtime! CoolSculpting® technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. This fat freezing procedure is completely non-surgical so you can typically return to work and normal activities immediately. It’s easy to sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat, and once treated, the fat cells are gone for good – leaving a more sculpted you! CoolSculpting® results are proven, noticeable, and lasting, so you will look and feel great from every angle.

As a centre of excellence for non-surgical rejuvenation, River Aesthetics is proud to be one of few clinics in Dorset to provide CoolSculpting® treatments. Every patient will be given a clinical recommendation and bespoke treatment plan tailored to their needs by our expert aestheticians. CoolSculpting® results are proven, noticeable, and lasting! Contact us today to book your consultation.

The Treatment Process

Every patient is given a bespoke treatment plan tailored to their needs by our expert aestheticians, providing a clinical recommendation on the areas that can be treated. Before the treatment begins, the appropriate applicator will be selected, with 5 different attachments available for use.

They include:

  • The Advantage+ (designed to work on big, bulky problem areas like the flanks, abdomen, and thigh)
  • Advantage (versatile enough for large areas, and small enough for spot treatments on areas such as the flanks, abdomen, thigh, and upper arm)
  • Smooth flat head (perfect for areas with non-pinchable fat including the upper abdomen and side of thighs)
  • Petit (meant for smaller more detailed work on areas including flanks, abdomen, thigh, upper arm)
  • Mini (specially design to treat very small areas including the chin, front of the arm pit, knee)

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.

What areas of the body can be treated with CoolSculpting?

The Science Behind CoolSculpting

This innovative body sculpting treatment targets stubborn fat cells that are difficult to shift despite having a healthy diet and undertaking regular exercise. When a person loses, or gains weight, the number of fat cells are not altered but rather they either decrease or increase in size, but by undergoing CoolSculpting® treatment patients can remove these fat cells for good! As the fat cells are safely and naturally eliminated over time, there is no risk of them migrating to untreated areas of your body.

What is Coolsculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a fat freezing device which is the only FDA approved non- surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn pockets of fatty tissue. Clinical studies have shown that the treatment reduces the number of fat cells by up to 27% after 6 months.

Does Coolsculpting® treat all types of fat?

No. CoolSculpting® is only used to treat soft subcutaneous fat. We cannot treat hard visceral fat. If you can squeeze it, we can freeze it!

When will I see my results?

Results will be visible 6 weeks post-treatment, with optimum results at 12 weeks due to the body continuing to flush out fat cells.

For optimum results, at least 2 cycles will be required.

Is CoolSculpting® permanent?

Yes. On average you get a 25-30% reduction.

What areas of the body can coolsculpting treat?

Stomach, back, bra fat, chins, arms, inner thigh and flanks.

How long does the treatment take?

A treatment takes only 35-45 minutes to be completed dependent on the head used. However, multiple applicators may be required in a treatment session to get desired result.

Is Coolsculpt a weight loss treatment?

No. CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment.
