Cool Trimming FAQ’s

What will I feel?

The device has a suction cup that pulls the unwanted fat into it and freezes it. Some mild discomfort may be experienced. At the end of the procedure, you massage the frozen fat bulge for a couple of minutes and repeat this massage twice-a-day for one-to-two minutes.

What happens to the skin in the frozen area?
Firstly the area is covered with a protective gel. Given that fat cells cool at a higher temperature than other cells, there is little or no bruising and marking on skin cells,1,2 and where bruising occurs, it is only temporary, typically clearing within one week.3
How do I know if it is for me?
Cool trimming is best suited to people within six to twelve kilos of their target body weight and those who wish to make a targeted, non-invasive adjustment to the abdomen, thighs, hips or other parts of their body.2
Can I repeat the treatment?
Yes, you can have multiple treatments because there no residual side-effects.
How much does it cost?
It depends on the areas treated.
What is the recovery?

You may feel a little chilled for a while but that should resolve within 24 hours.
