Move Aside Lipo, Fat Freezing Has Arrived & It's Here To Stay

Share Article

Pulse Light Clinic London uses fat freezing to help people shift stubborn fat and sculpt the body they want.

For a long time now ‘fat removal procedures,’ would have meant liposuction, gastritis-bypass or a myriad of other invasive surgeries. However, fat freezing has arrived and its results speak for themselves.

Fat freezing isn’t all that new and has actually been FDA approved since 2010. Fat freezing or CoolSculpting is a revolutionary technique to reduce stubborn fat and help shift the weight in all the right places. It is a non-surgical procedure and therefore much more palatable than the idea of liposuction or other invasive surgeries to remove and reduce bumps and bulges.

To shift weight, burn fat, right? So surely fat freezing or CoolSculpting® goes against all of that? Well, to get the ‘skinny’ on this, here’s a simple explanation of how fat freezing works from CoolSculpting Technician Mayel from London’s Pulse Light Clinic:

“Essentially, fat cells self-destruct when they gets cold enough, and because your skin is so much more resilient than fat cells, it’s actually possible to ‘kill’ the fat cells without causing lasting damage to the skin cells above. By using suction to isolate the area you wish to treat and then controlled cooling is delivered via an applicator to freeze the targeted fat. The freezing process takes just 45 minutes and many of our clients see results after just one session. Every client I deal with has their own needs and wants when it comes to fat freezing and my aim is to help my clients achieve the best results in the shortest time possible. That's why I take the time in my initial consultation to ensure they are relaxed and fully informed on what they require and how it works. That way I have happy clients and they have the results they want!“ - Mayel - CoolSculpting Technician Pulse Light Clinic London

Here are the FAQ's that most Cool Sculpting Technicians get:

“Am I a good candidate for the CoolSculpting® procedure?”

The CoolSculpting® fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g. gastric bypass), the CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for the CoolSculpting® procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.

A first step should be to speak to one of a CoolSculpting® technician to see if it is a suitable procedure for you.

"Can the CoolSculpting® procedure reduce fat anywhere on my body?"

The CoolSculpting® procedure can treat visible fat bulges in the submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen and flank (love handle), along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. A technician will create a customised treatment plan that’s tailored to each individuals body and goals.

“Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?”

Once the treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), they are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

“How long is each treatment and how many will I need?”

Each session can take just 45 minutes and the number of treatments needed will depend on each individuals programme which technicians help each person to create, though here are some of Pulse Light Clinics results within just a few sessions. (see attached pictures).

At Pulse Light Clinic the aim of fat freezing is to help reach the desired body goals in a professional and friendly environment in any one of the London clinics.

About us:

Pulse Light Clinic London was initially founded in 2000 as being one of the first solely rosacea treatment clinics by our Director Mary Maclean RGN. Mary discovered early on, in 2002 that IPL had better outcomes when nutritional therapy was used simultaneously with the IPL treatment. This is a unique feature of the Pulse Light Clinic.

Mary developed a very precise technique for the treatment of rosacea which evolved as IPL technology become more effective. Mary Maclean was fully booked 6 days a week with rosacea clients far and wide. Many clients from 15 years ago still attend the clinic for top-up rosacea treatments. Her method of applying multiple passes of the face with different wavelengths of light ensures that the blood vessels are targeted on the different layers of the skin. She has since passed on this technique to Pulse Light Clinic’s practitioner’s who have been interned in this precise method of applying IPL. Pulse Light clinic has since expanded in many different areas of laser treatments all inspired by this dedication using the most advanced technology coupled with techniques that ensure results.

With multiple lasers for each treatment, Pulse Light Clinic are constantly researching and testing new lasers on the markets to treat all skin problems and enhancements which gives them the ability to give an accurate and more trustworthy overview of the effectiveness of lasers for multiple treatments.

Always been located in the City of London, Fenchurch street, Pulse Light Clinic retains many of its original clients and continues to build up a very strong trust in the heart of London and still make it easy for those travelling in from areas outside of the city to reach us.
