Body Care, Fat Reduction Procedure, Non-Surgical, Procedures

We have seen many patients who are ecstatic with their Coolsculpting results; the technique that can freeze your fat away is becoming very popular as it requires no needles, surgery, or downtime.

It is important to note that Coolsculpting is not a replacement for a good diet and exercise. The procedure aims to target the areas of fat that are unaffected by a healthy lifestyle.

What Costs Are Involved with Coolsculpting?

You can book a Coolsculpting consultation with Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne which can include a Body Fat Evaluation Scan at a cost of $163 with an extra Body Change Plan, which offers a step-by-step guide for $112.

From here, you can pay via payment plan from $34 a week for your Coolsculpting session. The total price will vary per patient due to the amount of Coolsculpting required for your situation, however all of these costs will be made clear during your consultation.

As a rough idea, Coolsculpting sessions start from $850 per cycle or $1600 for two cycles. Chelsea Cosmetics flexible arrangements are in place to make treatments more affordable, plus you can save money by bundling cycles, such as;

  • Buy 6X Coolsculpting cycles and get 15% off

What Are the Risks or Coolsculpting Side Effects?

CoolSculpting, or ‘fat freezing,’ is a highly effective fat reduction procedure that involves a cold treatment process that will sculpt your body shape by reducing fat. While the results are not instant, you will see the change take place four to six weeks following the treatment.

Coolsculpting is a much safer alternative to other fat-removal procedures like traditional liposuction as it does not require an anaesthetic. It is important to note however, that all medical procedures contain a level of risk and potential side effects, albeit quite small in this case.

Side effects can include mild discomfort while the treatment is taking place, and you may experience some bruising or tender feelings around the area to touch. This should dissipate however after 24 to 72 hours. Extremely rare cases may experience late-onset pain or a level of irritation.

Coolsculpting has been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) branch of the Australian Government for safety and effectiveness.

Coolsculpting is perfect to get rid of those stubborn fat areas unaffected by exercise.
