I’ve had some great results with SlimSpa’s slimming treatments, so when I was offered a follow-up treatment with their new Cool Sculpt machine, I had to go. Cool Sculpt is Cryolipolysis - the non-invasive freezing of adipose tissue to induce Lypolysis (breaking down of fat cells). It basically freezes your fat to get rid of it!
Cool Sculpt works by extracting heat from the underlying fat tissue, while protecting the skin, nerves, muscles and other tissues. It can be used on the stomach, thighs, hips and arms; I was targeting my love handles.
Cool Sculpt has two applicators so you can treat two areas in one session. It is put against your skin and sucks the targeted area in. It then starts to freeze it. The suction bit is a little uncomfortable, but the freezing does not hurt and when the applicators come off, the area just feels a bit numb.
What are the results?
There is no downtime to this procedure. I was back at work within the hour, and though the area was bruised for a few days and felt a little numb, it did not hurt. To allow for maximised results they suggest one treatment per month for three months which can give a 60-70% reduction in localised fat. The results can be seen after 15 days and the most dramatic results after 8 weeks. After the 8-week period I had lost 1.5 inches!
Cool Sculpt is priced at Dhs 2,000 per session. Connector readers receive a 35% discount - at the price of Dhs 1,300.
