Freeze away fat?

The idea that cold can selectively affect fat, and that fat cells freeze at higher temperatures, led to the innovative cooling process developed by scientists at the Wellman Center for Photomedicine in Boston, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School.

How does it work?

CoolSculpting technology safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target and remove the fat cells underneath the skin. These fat cells are crystallised (frozen) and on average, in one hour-long treatment, 25% of fat cells in the treated area will be broken down and destroyed. Over the following weeks, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells, leaving a slimmer, more sculpted you.

At Aspire we develop a tailored CoolSculpting treatment plan that will target your problem areas. Sit back, relax and say goodbye to stubborn fat.


The process

  1. The image shows fat cells prior to treating. We select the area(s) to be treated, then the device is positioned over these areas and controlled cooling is applied.
  2. Controlled cooling through CoolSculpting targets and kills only selected fat cells, illustrated here in blue. You can sit back and relax whilst the treatment gets to work.
  3. Over the following weeks, the targeted fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body. Typically, you can return to work and normal activities immediately after the treatment.
  4. After 3 months, all the targeted fat cells are eliminated, leaving a more sculpted area.

"My CoolSculpting treatments were a total success for me."

With minimal discomfort during treatment and only some tingling/bruising afterwards, CoolSculpting has allowed me to focus on creating a healthier lifestyle whilst quickly achieving specific body goals in difficult areas, boosting my overall confidence. I'm so pleased with my results. Thanks, Sarah!


"Amazed at the results after only 7 weeks so can't wait to see the finished results."

Amazing results after only 7 weeks! I would recommend Aspire and CoolSculpting to anyone looking to achieve their desired body and confidence when the gym still doesn’t budge those stubborn areas.


"I want to let you know how delighted I am with the results of my CoolSculpting treatments."

I have had treatments to my tummy and waist hips and am amazed how well the treatment has not only reduced the fat in these areas but also given me a shape to be proud of! The treatments were completely comfortable. I felt the suction when I first went on the machine and then after a few minutes there was no sensation at all, and I was able to relax with a cup of coffee and read my magazine!

I started to see results after about three weeks* and the fat continued to disappear up to about three months after treatment. Looking at the before pictures makes me shudder. I look so much better now, and it has given me renewed confidence. Afterwards the area felt sensitive and was a little swollen for a few days but nothing I couldn't cope with.

Thank you for being so attentive to my needs both in explaining and carrying out my treatments. I felt I was in safe hands.


"On the day of my free consultation I was thoroughly examined and was taken through everything about the treatment, as well as all my questions being answered."

When it came to the day of my treatment, I was very excited and a little nervous, but I was quickly made to feel relaxed and at ease. Once the treatment was finished there was no pain at all which I was very surprised at! The following days I had slight sensations of a deep itch which I was told could happen. After about 4 weeks I could really start to see a difference. At 6 weeks, other people kept asking me if I had lost weight!

When I was informed the machine had started freezing my fat cells, the first 8 minutes were slightly uncomfortable but after that I couldn't feel a thing; I fell asleep and spent my time catching up on soaps on the computer. I am very pleased with my results and can't wait to have another area done. Thank you to my therapist for making me feel so comfortable and taking me through everything.


"I was really apprehensive about my treatment and whether it would work and having money wasted."

I had my treatment 12 weeks ago, but the real difference has been in the last 6 weeks. I’m really happy with the results and looking forward to getting my other troublesome area treated on. I highly recommend CoolSculpting.

Safety of treatment

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive surgical treatment, so that's no cuts to tissue, no needles and little to no downtime. It’s a safe, medically-cleared procedure, clinically proven to selectively reduce body fat layers in stubborn areas using a patented cooling technology, commonly known as 'fat freezing'.

It is a safe procedure cleared by the FDA* in the US and CE marked in Europe. The device gently cools unwanted fat cells in the body to induce a natural, controlled elimination of fat cells. This reduces bulges in treated areas of the body without harming surrounding tissue.

*The Food and Drug Administration, an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Find answers to our most commonly asked questions about CoolSculpting, the only FDA approved permanent fat reduction treatment.

Am I a good candiate?

Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. The CoolSculpting fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. Unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however, a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Request a one-on-one consultation with us to determine if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

How much does the CoolSculpting procedure cost?

The price for CoolSculpting procedures varies depending on your areas of concern, the number of sessions needed, and your ultimate goals. We will help create a customized treatment plan, in person, that’s tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.

How long is each session? How many sessions will I need?

We will help you create an individualized treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your CoolSculpting session will vary depending on the number of areas being treated during one visit. We may schedule additional sessions in order to meet your goals.

Where does the fat go? Are the results permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are crystallized (frozen), your body processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.

What does it feel like?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.

Will my fat come back?

Unlike other cells in the body, fat cells do not die off and regenerate on a regular basis. By adolescence, we each have the number of fat cells that we will maintain throughout our life. These fat cells may expand or contract as we put on, or lose weight, but the number of cells does not change. Therefore, if an area is particularly prone to putting on weight (such as the stomach area, or flanks for instance), then diet or exercise alone cannot reduce the number of fat cells in that area. Those cells are the ones most likely to expand again. However, due to CoolSculpting, even if you put on weight in the future, any weight gain is likely to be more evenly spread over your body and not concentrated in the problem area(s).

Is the CoolSculpting procedure safe?

The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA-cleared for the flank (love handles), abdomen, and thigh. With over four million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

Are there any side effects?

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain. Rare side effects may also occur. The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria. The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?

Yes, you can. The CoolSculpting procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients return to work after their CoolSculpting session is over.

When will I see results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.

WDo I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise program?

No supplements or pills are required, and you do not have to adopt new diet and exercise habits. Many patients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after their CoolSculpting treatment. It is as if they get a second lease on their body and want to start anew again by taking even better care of themselves.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?

Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting procedure, take even better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated areas.*
