Freeze away unwanted fat with no surgery and no needles


Target the stubborn fat that often dieting and exercise just cannot remove

Coolsculpting – What is it?

Is a Non-invasive (fat freezing/cryopolisis) technology that safely delivers precise controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin while leaving the skin itself un-affected. The treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen) then die and over time your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Leaving a more sculpted you. In fact – Unlike other cells in our body, fat cells do not die off and regenerate naturally. By adolescence we have all the fat cells we carry through life. These expand or contract as we put on or lose weight, but the number doesn’t change.

“So once the fat cells are gone they are gone for good”

Is it Safe?

Coolsculpting’s unique patented “Freeze Detect Technology” has proven superior safety and is approved in the EU and cleared as safe and effective by U.S. FDA for

“Non-Surgical fat reduction”

Who is an ideal candidate?

An ideal candidate will have bulging fat areas over parts of their body they would like to eliminate and/or fat areas that cannot be removed by simply diet and/or exercise. Coolsculpting is NOT a weight loss programme or for people who are obese but is a definite alternative to liposuction. Pinch-able body fat is a good guide to suitability. This will all be discussed in detail on your consultation appointment if it is suitable for you.

What is the treatment time and will I need multiple sessions?

On your full consultation appointment with one of our medical team they will review your specific goals and be able to advise on the time required (normally between 1-3 hours). This will also vary depending upon the number of areas you wish to have treated. Additional sessions may be required to meet your goals and if more than one area is needed to be treated.

A specific bespoke plan will be designed for you.

What happens to the fat cells?

Once the treated fat cells are frozen your normal body processes will eliminate the dead cells. The treated cells once treated are gone and gone for good.

Is the procedure painful?

As the cooling process begins, the skin feels some pressure on that area being targeted and intense cold. This soon calms down and during the procedure the patient can work on their laptop and/or phone, watch film/TV, relax/sleep etc.

How quickly do you see the results?

You will generally start to see results as soon as 2-3 weeks following your treatment, but the most dramatic results will be seen after about 2-3 months

What are the side effects?

During the procedure you may experience in the treated area – numbness, pulling and tugging sensation and mild discomfort. Following the procedure possible mild numbing feeling, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness and stinging may occur, they are temporary and will normally subside within a few hours.

Is there any downtime?

Typically most people return to their normal daily activities following the procedure, often patients also return directly to work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a good candidate?

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 customised treatment plan, 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 individualised treatment plan tailored to your specific goals. The length of your colsculpting 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 crystallised (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.

Is the Coolsculpting procedure safe?

The Coolsculpting procedure is FDA cleared for the flank (love handles) abdomen, chin and thigh and approved in EU. With over 5 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. The Coolsculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask us if the Coolsculpting procedure is 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 the results?

You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after 2-3 months. But your body will still flush our fat cells and continues to do so for up to four to six months after treatment.

Do I need to take special supplements or follow a strict diet and exercise programme?

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 once again by taking better care of themselves.

What happens if I gain weight down the road?

Many people, after seeing the results of 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.

What people say about us and our treatments

“I had my first visit to the Henley Clinic about 2 years ago, I am extremely happy with my treatments of CACI and Hydradermie. I also had Ultherapy under eye treatment about 6 months ago to eliminate those unsightly under eye lines and thrilled with the results. The specialist Sarah who treated me was lovely and explained the procedure in depth and what I could expect.The therapists and reception ladies are very friendly, professional and very helpful. I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else.” Samantha *
