Chilling Your Way to a New You: The Ultimate Guide to CoolSculpting®

As we advance into the new world of technology, we are provided with new opportunities to help you reach your aesthetic goals. The treatments are becoming more efficient and delivering impressive results. CoolSculpting® is the global leader in fat reduction technology. Over 11 million treatments have been performed worldwide. It uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn superficial fat that’s difficult to shift, even with diet and exercise.

Years ago, scientists observed that some infants who sucked on ice blocks got dimples in their cheeks. This led scientists to realise the possibility that cooling can selectively damage small pockets of fat cells. From this, the CoolSculpting procedure was created. CoolSculpting® is the only fat-freezing technology to be FDA-approved.

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is an FDA-approved body sculpting technique rising in popularity for its easy and non-invasive treatment style. Cryolipolysis is the scientific name for the fat-freezing treatments that are becoming increasingly popular across the globe. CoolSculpting® is a safe and effective treatment for getting rid of stubborn fat. This should not be treated as a weight loss solution, but rather an addition to it. It is designed to remove the stubborn fat that exists even after dieting and exercise. It is an incredibly simple treatment for the patient: they sit in a chair for approximately 30 minutes, and then when the treatment’s over, they go on about their day. There is no prolonged recovery time.

The CoolSculpting® machines works by using an intense cold and freezing the fat cells until they die. They are then flushed from the body via its natural metabolic processes. Your body begins shedding fat cells from the treated area and continues to do so months after treatment. The treatment areas can be upper arms, thighs, buttocks, upper back, flanks, and hips.

What to Consider when Finding a CoolSculpting® Provider

A reputable clinic will take your medical history, talk you through the procedure, give you the opportunity to ask questions and provide information about aftercare. They will be willing to tell you about their insurance, give details about the devices, products and supplies they use, and talk about their experience and qualifications.

You should only consider providers who are certified to use CoolSculpting. There are many machines out there that look similar to CoolSculpting®, but are not the tried and true technology. Just make sure to check the logo on the machine or ask for more details from your provider to ensure you’re being treated with CoolSculpting, if that’s the treatment you’re after. Victoria’s is proud to be Northern Tasmania’s only provider of CoolSculpting treatments. We’ll walk you through everything you need to know at your consultation, so you feel confident about the treatments.

Is CoolSculpting Safe?

Did you know CoolSculpting® is the only fat-freezing technology to be FDA-approved?  

CoolSculpting® Machines are incredibly safe and have several features to help protect patients during treatment. These features include:

  • Temperature sensors: The machine has sensors that constantly monitor the temperature of the skin and fat cells. If the temperature gets too low, the machine will automatically shut down to prevent tissue damage.
  • Skin contact sensors: The machine also has sensors that monitor the contact between the applicator and the skin. If the applicator is not in contact with the skin properly, the machine will automatically shut down to prevent skin burns.
  • Automatic shut-off timer: The machine has a timer that automatically shuts it down after a predetermined amount of time. This helps to prevent overtreatment and tissue damage.
  • Safety release button: The machine has a safety release button that can be used to stop the treatment at any time.

CoolSculpting® machines are only operated by trained and certified professionals. They must undertake proper training to be able to provide patients with safe and effective treatment.


Unable to remove stubborn fat through exercising and dieting? CoolSculpting® is the technological advancement designed for this exact purpose. It should not be considered a form of weight loss, but rather an addition to your exercise and dieting to tone your body by removing stubborn fat.

It is incredibly safe due to its extensive safety features and professional training undertaken by the operators and providers.
