CoolSculpting® Glasgow

This fat-freezing technique is the non-surgical alternative to liposuction that actually works.

Have you considered liposuction but you don’t fancy the idea of anaesthesia, recovery, compression garments, and all of the potential complications of surgery? Now there is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative that ACTUALLY WORKS.

Just look at the case studies of our patients who have been treated here, in our Glasgow clinic. These results have been achieved without surgery, with a combination of our expert medical team’s knowledge and a treatment plan utilising the extraordinary patented, FDA approved CoolSculpting® technology.

Most of us have the odd little bump or pocket of fat on our bodies that we are not too keen on. Often these bumps can be in places that are genetically programmed such as the saddlebags, mummy tummy, muffin tops, love handles, double chin, and ‘bra fat’ that just will not shift, no matter how much we diet and exercise.

Sometimes these ‘little bulges’ can really get to us and affect how we feel about ourselves, both in and out of clothes.

That is where CoolScultping® fat-freezing works and can really help.

CoolSculpting® reduces unwanted body fat with lasting results.
CoolSculpting® is the only FDA-approved, non-surgical, non-invasive fat reduction treatment in the world.

The technology was originally developed by Harvard scientists and sold to Allergan (the company behind Botox®) in a multi-billion dollar deal. The technology is protected by over 150 global patents and whilst there are now many attempts to copy CoolSculpting®, no other machine has access to the patented features that make CoolSculpting® so uniquely safe and consistently effective.

We now have three CoolSculpting fat reduction machines in our clinic, making us one of the biggest CoolSculpting centres outside of London.

CoolSculpting® Glasgow

Over 7 million CoolSculpting fat reduction treatments have been performed worldwide.

The CoolSculpting fat-freezing procedure has been rigorously tested through research and has many scientific studies and clinical papers published in peer-reviewed literature that testify to its effectiveness. If that is not enough for you, just look at some of the before and after images above of patients treated right here in our Glasgow clinic.

Because of how effective the technology is at targeting fat cells in a non-invasive way, a huge number of ‘copy-cat’ machines have flooded the market claiming to do the same thing, for a lower cost. We have tried these ‘copy-cat’ products and they quite simply do not provide the same results as CoolSculpting® because they do not have access to the patents that protect CoolSculpting®.

Diet and exercise work as long as you maintain it, but it takes up a lot of energy and willpower, whereas CoolSculpting® is simple and hassle-free.

To put it simply, CoolSculpting works – especially where other methods don’t.

We can’t wait for you to get in touch with us to find out how we can help you. Call us or book your appointment online today!

In addition to the incredible fat-freezing technology, we also have a dedicated CoolSculpting® team in our clinic headed up by Dr. Joanne Payne. Dr. Joanne sees all of our CoolSculpting® patients for their initial fat reduction consultation and assessment.

At the consultation, she examines and measures the fat pads and creates a bespoke non-invasive treatment plan to suit each person’s individual needs. This is a critical part of the treatment process: there are no treatments by the standard protocol in our clinic. Every treatment plan is tailored to your specific needs.

You can see how effective that process is by looking at the before and after images presented in our Case Studies. Remember, our Case Studies are our own patients treated in our clinic – these are not fat-freezing stock images borrowed from the manufacturer.

Not many clinics can show you their own before and after images because most rely on stock images borrowed from the manufacturer. We can proudly show you our results because we have learned how to maximise the technology to achieve the best results for you, which we believe, in some cases, exceed the results produced by the manufacturer.

Since being cleared by the FDA in America – widely considered to be the most rigorous medical device regulator in the world – CoolSculpting has been approved to treat unwanted fat in the following areas:

  • Submental region (double chin)
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen (tummy)
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Bra Fat
  • Back Fat
  • Underneath the buttocks
  • Upper Arms (Bingo Wings)


Anywhere on your body that you have fat you can pinch (or grab), we can treat.

When CoolSculpting® was originally launched it came with one treatment applicator head, which allowed the machine to freeze large chunks of tissue such as lower belly fat or love handles.

Since then, the applicator heads have been redesigned to make them more effective and efficient with regards to body shape. Some treatments can be completed in as little as 35 minutes with the new design, whilst more awkwardly shaped areas – such as the double chin or ‘bra fat’ – can be treated with new custom-designed handpieces.

We have invested in a full stock of all applicator heads, assisting us in the process of customising the treatments specifically to each individual.

As well as the full range of applicator designs, we also have three CoolSculpting® machines which allow us to treat multiple areas simultaneously, quickly, and effectively without the downtime or risks of surgery.

This truly is non-invasive fat reduction at its best.

The latest addition to the CoolAdvantage applicator family – the CoolAdvantage Petite™ – is specifically designed to treat the upper arm area in just 35 minutes.

It has been created with two interchangeable contours which safely and effectively treat the unique shape of the upper arms. Due to its small shape and size, it’s also versatile enough to tackle small pockets of fat on other areas of the body too, such as the knees.

It takes a little while for full results to appear since the body needs to go through the process of programmed cell death and elimination of the breakdown products.

You can normally start to see results after around 4 weeks, although it takes up to 4 months to see the full results.

During your CoolSculpting consultation at our Glasgow clinic, we can discuss a tailored treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.

Since we have become accustomed to non-surgical procedures being a temporary fix – for example, Botox lasts for 4 months or fillers last between 1 to 2 years – many people assume that the same is true of CoolSculpting.

Actually, this is not the case. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that lasts.

When the fat cells are destroyed by the cryolipolysis process, they are gone forever. So long as you maintain your current body weight, the contour will remain the same – similar to the longevity of liposuction.

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, fat-freezing (cryolipolysis) treatment that is scientifically proven to work in reducing fat cells as a body contouring method – similar to liposuction.
The results are long-lasting and noticeable.

CoolSculpting® works by precisely cooling the temperature of the tissue to a predetermined level whereby it is possible for the overlying skin to survive, but not the underlying fat cells.

The fat cells then undergo a program of controlled cell death known as ‘apoptosis’ and are naturally eliminated from the body over a number of weeks following the treatment.

This results in a noticeable and long-lasting reduction in the unwanted fat bulge without a need for surgery or to change your diet and exercise routine.

CoolSculpting has been approved by the FDA in America – the most rigorous regulator in the world.
It is approved because of its patented technology, safety features, and ability to deliver consistent results. There have been over 7 million CoolSculpting treatments performed worldwide without any major complications, making it a much safer alternative to liposuction, which is also non-surgical.

What to expect after CoolSculpting®

Because CoolSculpting® is carried out without the need for surgery, there is very little downtime and most patients can return to their normal activities right away.

CoolSculpting Glasgow



The cost of the treatment varies according to the size of the area being treated and the amount of fat that needs to be removed. Each treatment area treated by one applicator head is referred to as a treatment ‘cycle’.

What we have learned about CoolSculpting® is that to achieve the most impressive results, it is necessary to combine multiple treatment cycles using a range of different applicator heads to create a bespoke plan tailored to your body shape.

Usually, multiple treatment cycles are performed at a single treatment session, although sometimes two separate sessions – four weeks apart – are suggested.

The exact number of treatment cycles really does vary from person to person, according to the size and shape of the individual fat pads.

Generally, the larger the area, and the thicker the fat cells, the more cycles that will be required. At your initial consultation, we will make a number of measurements so we can work out exactly what the best treatment parameters will be to achieve the results you are looking for. As a general guide, the table below gives an estimate of the number that may be required per body area.
