An hourglass figure is a classically feminine shape that has never gone out of fashion – however, that Coke bottle silhouette can be hard to maintain as we go through life.
More and more, people no longer want to have any downtime or painful surgery and scars. At Aesthetics Lab we have refined the best way to create this shape that we are all seeking for with the help of Coolsculpting technology.
Age, genetics, pregnancy, weight gain and loss, and activity levels are just some of the factors that influence our body shape. Most of us are prone to some weight gain around the middle and, sometimes, even a healthy diet and regular exercise aren’t enough to make a difference.
But what if you could sculpt your body into better shape without the need for surgery?
CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved fat freezing, fat loss (cryolipolysis) treatment that works by freezing and crystallising targeted fat cells, while leaving other cells unharmed. Once the fat cells have been frozen, they break apart and are naturally removed by your body’s lymphatic system.
With our special techniques we can use CoolSculpting to create an hourglass figure, targeting your abdomen, waist, hips, (thighs or bottom as needed), significantly reducing fat in these tricky areas.
CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss solution but if you’re in good health and shape and need some sculpting to enhance your hourglass figure then it’s a fantastic option.
Even better, it’s non-invasive, painless, quick and with little to no recovery time. Plus, there’s no need for anaesthesia or any risk of post-surgical complications. You can get back to your usual activities straight after the procedure.
You should see progressive improvements to your silhouette after as little as 3 weeks and see the results keep improving for up to 16 weeks post-treatment.
We can also offer DualSculpting to reduce your procedure time in half, making it easy for you to have the waistline you desired in only a few hours.
You will have an initial consultation here at Aesthetics Lab. During this appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to talk about your concerns and hopes for treatment. In turn, we’ll go through your medical history and determine whether you’re a good candidate for hourglass CoolSculpting.
You can rely on us to give you honest, clear advice and to set realistic expectations for your treatment results.
This is the time to tell us what you want to achieve from your treatment. In discussing problem areas together, we can create a personalised treatment plan that is tailored to your body, your goals, and your budget.
Should you not be suitable for the procedure, we will work with you to find an alternative treatment for your concern.
Your CoolSculpting appointment will take place in one of our gorgeous treatment rooms. Many people relax and read or watch Netflix while they’re having their treatment.
As you relax on our comfortable treatment bed, we will place a sterile gel pad on your skin over which we’ll apply the CoolSculpting handpiece. This creates a high pressure vacuum, pulling your skin and the fatty cells underneath into the applicator. You will feel a firm tugging sensation. The fat cells under your skin will gradually be cooled down to freezing until they crystallise.
Some people find the treatment cold at first and experience a pinching or pulling sensation but sensations subside after a few minutes.
We will also spoil you with some nice goodies during your treatment.
With the procedure complete, your aesthetician will gently massage the treatment area. This encourages the dead fat cells to break down so that your lymphatic system can metabolise them over the next two to three months and expel them naturally.
Your skin may look a little red and swollen immediately after the treatment but this should subside within 24 hours. People often refer to CoolSculpting as a lunch-time alternative to liposuction as you can usually return to your daily activities straight away. You can also wear a waist trainer garment straight after to help define your shape further.
For seven days post-treatment, you should avoid alcohol and caffeine. We also recommend that you try to drink three litres of water a day for a few weeks to help your body flush out the treated cells.
You should start noticing changes to your hourglass silhouette within three to six weeks of your treatment, with improvements continuing for up to 16 weeks. Your body will continue to eliminate the dead fat cells for three to six months post-treatment.
