Cutting-edge cryolipolysis technology for reducing fat without surgery

Call (03) 8822 3472


We strongly encourage patients to pursue their goals using natural and healthy approaches first before contemplating Coolsculpting. 

Coolsculpting® is also known as fat freezing or cryolipolysis. It is a non-surgical, fat-reduction procedure using a form of controlled cooling. It freezes and eliminates excess fat cells.

Coolsculpting treatments target specific areas of the body that store excess fat. This is achieved whilst leaving the neighbouring nerves, blood vessels, skin and muscles unharmed. If you want to find out more about a Coolsculpting procedure in Melbourne, contact us for a no-obligation consultation today.

Before deciding on any treatment with us, it's important to have realistic expectations about the outcome. Talk to your practitioner about what to expect from this treatment and make sure you understand your recovery time and the likely results.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

At Chelsea Cosmetics we use Zeltiq CoolSculpt technology for all their cryolipolysis procedures. The length of each patients treatment depends on the number of areas they would like addressed. Generally, a total coolsculpting treatment time ranges from half an hour to an hour. A typical Coolsculpting procedure works like this:

  1. The patient lies down and the technician uses a pen to map out the specific areas to target with the Coolsculpting applicator.
  2. A protective gel pad over the area of skin receiving treatment.
  3. The technician places a portion of the unwanted fat in the treatment area between two panels of the Zeltiq machine.
  4. Using suction, the paddle gently pulls the skin and fat inside.
  5. The temperature of the tissue inside the paddle drops to somewhere between 2 and 7 degrees causing the fat cells to first crystallise and then die, which is a process called apoptosis.
  6. Once the patient completes their treatment session, the technician removes the paddle and massages the treatment area. Massaging this area jumpstarts the body’s excretion of the dead fat cells.
  7. A few weeks after a cryolipolysis treatment, the dead fat cells pass through the liver and are expelled from the body.
  8. Results are very noticeable at the 3-month mark, with improvements continuing for a further next three months with the final results evident at the 6-month mark.

Areas of the Body that Can Be Treated

Coolsculpting or fat-freezing treatments can target fat cells in areas all over the body. The stomach, abdomen, hips, back fat and chin areas are all popular choices. CoolSculpting is also used to address visible excess fat that may be located:

  • Underneath the buttocks.
  • In the upper arm.
  • Beneath the jawline.
  • In the flanks.
  • Along the bra line.
  • In the lower and upper back.
  • Underneath the chin (Fat bulges in the submental space)
  • In the inner and outer sections of the thigh.

Cryolipolysis procedures can also be used to tone the following:

  • Knees
  • Other body areas (e.g., mons pubis).
  • If contouring irregularities are present following a liposuction procedure, technicians can use fat-freezing treatments to create symmetry.

Using the large Zeltiq applicator, we are able to treat two areas simultaneously. This reduces the overall treatment time by about 50% in some Coosculpting procedures.

Who Makes a Good Candidate For Coolsculpting?

Men and women who want to eliminate fat in troublesome areas without Surgery may want to consider having a fat-freezing treatment. Physical characteristics that make people good candidates for the coolsculpting® are:

  • Has enough pinchable fat to place within the CoolSculpting applicator.
  • Not looking to lose weight but instead to solve contouring issues resulting from areas of fat resistant to diet and exercise.
  • Has a Body Mass Index (BMI) that is below 25 and not for people who are obese or severely overweight.
  • Have bulges in certain areas they'd like to fix.
  • For advice on coolsculpting Melbourne patients can trust, simply contact us with any questions.

Who Is Not a Good Candidate?

People with pacemakers, poor circulation or defibrillators are not good candidates for fat-freezing procedures. Breastfeeding or pregnant women must wait until they have birthed their baby and finished breastfeeding to have a CoolSculpting procedure. An individual who has any skin condition (e.g., dermatitis, eczema) or wound in the treatment area must wait for the issue to resolve before having freeze fat treatment in that particular area.

NOTE: It's important to note that Coolsculpting is not a method for weight loss; while it may result in a reduction in dress or pants sizes, the scale may not reflect a significant difference.
