Southend Laser are now providing the latest treatments in body contouring, fat reduction & fat freezing, using the Cooltech Fat Freezing platform.


What is cooltech?

The cooltech device is designed to treat subcutaneous fat in multiple body areas. It works by using a controlled cooling system to permanently freeze away fat cells that are lying under the skin. It is great for removing Local areas of fat. The treatment is a safe, effective and cost-effective alternative to liposuction. There is minimal downtime with no scars.

The device is CE marked, which means it has undergone stringent tests and checks to ensure its safety and efficacy. There have been over one million Cooltech treatments performed worldwide with minimal complications.

How does it work?

The technology has been developed after scientists observed that children who ate a lot of ice lollies had more dimples due to loss of cheek fat! With further research scientists went on to realise that fat cells were more vulnerable to damage from the cold than other tissue. These damaged cells are then removed from the body by the normal immune system. This whole process is called cryolipolysis. The cooltech procedure works by freezing adipose tissue to cause controlled cell death. The hand-held applicator creates a vacuum and reduces the temperature on selected areas of fat tissue. The treatment can be adapted to different body areas to achieve a full body-contouring treatment.

Another key benefit to cooltech is that, unlike some other similar treatments, you can treat two areas in just one appointment, making this a quicker and more cost-effective option.

Legs, abdomen, chin, arms, knees and flanks


Can you lose weight by freezing fat?

Cooltech can treat visible fat bulges and is not designed as a weight loss treatment. This should be achieved through regular exercise and sensible eating and drinking.


Are there any side effects?

There are minimal side effects, however it is possible that you may have bruising, numbness and swelling in the treated areas due to suction of the applicator and massage. This does reduce over the next few days to weeks. Numbness can last for up to six weeks, however it is not as noticeable after the first week. Very rarely some people can develop areas of lumpy fat but the risk is 1/20,000. This feels like harder discrete areas of fat that then may need surgical removal. Also some people may notice areas of skin discolouration or increased pigmentation.


How many sessions will I need?

This will depend on your aims and desired outcomes. Standard treatments range from one to three sessions in the same area at six to eight week intervals.


How effective is it?

In studies that have been done, the treatment has been shown to permanently remove 30% of fat in the treated area in 100% of patients treated. You can expect up to a 50% reduction with subsequent treatments.


How long does each treatment take?

Treatment usually takes around 70 minutes, with around 15 to 30 minutes preparation time.


What does it feel like?

The treatment is really comfortable and well tolerated. It is non-surgical and requires little or no downtime. You can easily come in for a treatment and then continue your normal activities. Firstly, a gel pad is applied to your skin which feels cool and wet. You may then feel a slight pulling or discomfort from the cooling sensation during the first 5-10 minutes and then during the massage at the end of the treatment.


When will I see the results?

The final results are visible at 6-12 weeks as the body uses this time to flush away the dead fat cells. These results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.


Can I get back to normal activities straight away?

Yes. The procedure is non-invasive and there is no need for any recovery time. Most people return to normal activities immediately after a treatment. The area you have treated will also determine your comfort afterwards along with natural variations in personal discomfort thresholds. We would recommend you wear loose, comfortable afterwards.


How much does it cost?

Your initial cooltech consultation is £50, which is fully redeemable against the price of the treatment if you decide to go ahead.

The treatment is performed by a highly experienced practitioner who can operate the medical device and will start from £250 nationally.
