Reaching your body goals can be a difficult and exhausting journey. Some people are genetically predisposed to storing fat in particular areas and despite diet and exercise, sometimes those pesky bulges of fat just won’t budge.
Are you aware that when you lose weight, the volume of fat cells decreases but the number of cells remain. This suggests that these remaining fat cells can still enlarge in the future.
From chin to tummy to thighs and everywhere in between, CoolSculpting® can complement your diet and exercise regime to reduce unwanted superficial fat.
Up to 93% of patients were satisfied with their CoolSculpting® experience^ and with minimal downtime.
With no needles and no surgery, CoolSculpting® selectively freezes and destroys unwanted superficial fat.* The fat cells that are frozen during the procedure are gradually removed through the body’s natural elimination process.*
CoolSculpting® treated fat cells are gone for good.*
At Body Sculpt Clinic, we offer complimentary consultations where we work out a personalised treatment plan specifically designed for your body and your goals. This may include multiple technologies and treatments for your best outcome. The consultation is completely obligation free and a fantastic opportunity for you to learn about the incredible treatments on offer.

The lymphatic system plays a key role in the body’s immune defenses.
Lymphatic fluid flows through lymph vessels, which connect lymph nodes. As it passes through the lymph nodes, white blood cells trap and destroy harmful particles, such as bacteria.
Like blood in the circulatory system, lymphatic fluid is always moving. If it stops, swelling can occur, as lymph fluid builds up, often in the arms or legs which is called lymphedema. When you have a CoolSculpting or RadioFrequency/ Cavitation treatments done, your lymphatic system is what helps to clear the dead fat cells and toxins out of the body. There are more benefits than just that for our bodies though. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from body tissues.
There are multiple ways to assist your body to manually drain excess Lymph out of the system. At home you can perform lymphatic massage (find out how to below), use a dry body brush before your daily shower (the one we retail in clinic has massage beads as well as bristles), use of products such as our LipoDrain cream (RRP $85), and LED treatments which we offer in clinic.
Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, relieves swelling that happens when medical treatment or illness blocks your lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage involves gently manipulating specific areas of your body to help lymph move to an area with working lymph vessels.
A lymphatic drainage massage is a two-step process:
Deep breathing acts like a pump that helps move fluid through the vessels and lymph nodes. Follow the steps below:
Prepare the lymph nodes under the arms to help them accept lymph fluid from other areas of the body. Do not perform this movement on areas that doctors have treated for cancer. Follow these steps:
Use the following techniques to help drain lymph fluid from the chest, shoulder, and upper arm.
To massage the chest:
To massage the shoulder:
To massage the upper arm:
To massage the full arm:
To massage the fingers:
Start the massage at the top of the leg and work down toward the foot. Use a pillow or stool for support.
To massage the upper leg:
To massage the lower leg:
To massage the toes, use the thumb and index finger and stroke the skin from the tip of each toe toward the base.
It is vital to always end the massage by drinking extra fluids.
Generally speaking, lymphatic drainage massage is a safe treatment to relieve lymphedema. There are some conditions and circumstances where lymphatic drainage massage is not recommended:
Talk to your healthcare provider if you’re concerned your physical health might be affected by lymphatic drainage massage.
Your investment always depends on a variety of factors, which areas you want to treat, how much fat you have in those areas, and how much fat you want gone. There are nine different sized and shaped applicators and dozens of combinations for the body parts that frustrate you. After our assessment of you, we can work together to develop a treatment plan and customised quote to achieve your body goals.
At Body Sculpt Clinic, we offer a complimentary consultation to work out your personalised treatment plan and to make sure you are a suitable candidate to get the wonderful results that you desire.
We find most of our clients treat the areas that frustrate them 2 or 3 times. This ensures the most noticeable and dramatic reductions for our clients. We always build a custom and unique treatment plan based on your body, your goals, and the outcomes you are looking to achieve. There is no rush to complete your treatment plan as the results we achieve in one session is permanent. This allows us to work within your budget and time allowances.
Interestingly enough, fat cells do not weigh very much, they just take up a lot of space. So, when our clients do multiple treatment visits, although they look and feel different and there is noticeable difference in the volume reduction, the scale doesn't change. It is all about how your clothes fit and how you feel. Watch that confidence soar!
We'll be the first to tell you that CoolSculpting is not for everyone but unfortunately, there are clinics out there that will deem you a candidate just to collect your money. Some even falsely advertise their fat frezing machines as genuine CoolSculpting.
This is why consultations are so important to us. We invite you to come in and have a transparent, realistic conversation about CoolSculpting and what it can achieve for you and if it's a fit, we'll happily freeze your stubborn fat cells away.

Is CoolSculpting® permanent?
Short answer: it can be! It’s wholly dependent on the individual. A great benefit of CoolSculpting® is that it requires little to no downtime however there are suggested ways to ensure the best results and the most long-lasting effect. If you start or continue a healthy lifestyle, try not to fluctuate weight too much, and don’t do anything that would greatly alter the body (invasive cosmetic surgery, or pregnancy, for example), it’s possible for the treatment’s results to last long-term.
How long does it take to see results of CoolSculpting®?
You may start to see changes as quickly as six to eight weeks after your treatment, and the full result should be seen after three months. Your body will still continue to eliminate the dead fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. The Before & Afters Gallery shows what results look like several weeks after treatment. It’s also important to continue to live a healthy lifestyle for a holistic approach to your body sculpting results.
How long does a CoolSculpting® session take?
Depending on the area, it can take from 35 minutes to an hour, and extra for a post-treatment massage. You can go right back to normal life immediately afterward, so you don’t have to factor-in time for recovery.
How much does CoolSculpting® cost?
Prices are dependent on the areas treated, how many areas treated, and the number of sessions required for the desired outcome. The best way to find out how much it will cost you specifically is to organise a consultation with a CoolSculpting® medical professional and discuss your ideal outcome and what it will take to get you there.
How cold is CoolSculpting®?
As the cooling begins, during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This should soon become bearable as the treated area numbs. And with some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. CoolSculpting® technology delivers precisely-controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin, whilst leaving the skin itself unaffected.
Why have a Complimentary Consultation?
At Body Sculpt Clinic, we pride ourselves on delivering fantastic results personalised to you and your body goals. We have a range of gold standard treatments which can be used on their own or in combination to help you receive your desired results.
In your complimentary consultation, you will spend 30mins with our body contouring expert Katrina who will develop a treatment plan and quote to fit in with your lifestyle and budget. This is completely obligation free if you decide it is not for you. We also only recommend a treatment plan if we feel you will get the results you are expecting.
Some of the treatment options offered at Body Sculpt Clinic include:
CoolSculpting. This is our number one treatment we perform here. Katrina has nine years experience with CoolSculpting and has performed the most treatments in Australia. CoolSculpting is a fantastic non surgical body contouring treatment which permanently destroys fat cells out of specific areas- no weight loss required.
Bipolar Radio Frequency. RF energy is used to heat the skin with the purpose of stimulating the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Every year after age 25 we lose 1% of our collagen resulting in skin laxity. This treatment can be used anywhere on the body but most common areas are full face, neck, arms, inner thighs and abdomens. Fantastic after the tummy has been stretched with babies. This can be used on its own or in combination with CoolSculpting for fat reduction and skin tightening.
Cavitation Focused Ultrasound. This is for cellulite reduction to help detoxify the fat cells and stimulate lymphatic drainage. Our cellulite reduction is a combination of low-frequency ultrasound waves and vacuum to assist the lymphatic system to drain out unwanted toxins and flush fat from the body.
Collagen Induction Therapy. This is done with a skin needling pen which stimulates the production of collagen to create smoother, healthier skin. It reduces acne scarring, stretch marks, fine lines, pigmentation, enlarged pores, blackheads and scarring.
Typical example of a treatment plan for a "Mummy Tummy"
First CoolSculpting to reduce the volume in the area. Wait six weeks then start cavitation and radio frequency treatments weekly for six weeks. Monthly collagen induction therapy sessions starting from four weeks post CoolSculpting to assist with stretch marks.

CoolSculpting Risks and Costs
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the brand name for a fat-freezing method that aims to get rid of stubborn fat in certain parts of your body. The method is called cryolipolysis. The U.S. Food and Drug Adminstration approved it in 2010.
Scientists came up with the idea for cryolipolysis by studying what happens to fat during frostbite. Fat freezes at a higher temperature than skin. The cryolipolysis device cools your fat to a temperature that destroys it while leaving your skin and other tissues unharmed.
Cryolipolysis isn't surgery and doesn't use needles. The device holds the part of your body in a suction cup applicator. The device cools quickly and they stay in place for about 35 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes. During that time, the process destroys about 20%-25% of the fat cells in the area that's targeted.
The final results may not show up for a few months, but you may start to see some changes within a few weeks. Your immune system clears out the dead fat cells slowly over this time.
Who Is It For?
Cryolipolysis isn't a way to lose weight. Your clinican might suggest it if you've tried diet and exercise and haven't been able to get rid of certain fat bulges.
You should avoid cryolipolysis if you have:
Cryolipolysis can be used to help you kill fat cells in areas of your body such as:
You can get cryolipolysis done at Body Sculpt Clinic, and you don't need to schedule recovery time afterward. It's OK to drive yourself home from the appointment.
There are a few side effects. During the process, you may feel a pulling or tugging on your skin and an intense cold. Afterward, you may feel sore, like you've been exercising. You may also swell a little.
Rarely, cryolipolysis can cause mild or moderate pain afterward. You're also at a slight risk of nerve pain.
Sometimes your skin can look less smooth afterward. Less than 1% of people who get it done have a complication called paradoxical fat hyperplasia. When this happens, the number of fat cells in the area of treatment increase instead of decrease. This is corrected with Vaser Liposuction.
Studies show that cryolipolysis is safe and effective. The risks are few and rare. There's no damage to your liver. Side effects are mild, too, and go away after a short time.
Cryolipolysis is considered a cosmetic treatment. That means insurance or Medicare won’t cover it.
How much you’ll pay for cryolipolysis depends on several things:
Cryolipolysis for the arms, for example, may take only one session per arm and would cost less per session than larger areas, such as the stomach or love handles. A cycle is $650 each and arms would require one on each side. There is discount for the more cycles you have.
CoolSculpting is a non surgical alternative to Liposuction.
A Cool Story
The invention of CoolSculpting
In searching for a non-surgical procedure that reduces the stubborn fat deposits on your body, CoolSculpting® might have appeared in your search. There are many results and stories on CoolSculpting®, but you may be wondering about when did CoolSculpting® begin? While CoolSculpting® is still considered a new and inventive procedure, it has been in Australia over 10 years!
CoolSculpting® is a great alternative for those looking to reduce the amount of fat on their body without having to undergo surgery. It is a non-surgical, fat reduction procedure that was created by ZELTIQ using the method of Cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is a medical treatment that uses freezing methods to destroy fat cells.
CoolSculpting® uses the controlled application of cooling to reduce a group of fat deposits to reshape your body, or sculpt your body’s contours. CoolSculpting® is seen as a successful and safe, non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It reduces the fat in the areas you wish to be treated by on average 25%!
CoolSculpting® has the ability to treat many different areas of your body that you wish to remove any bulges of fat to create a thinner appearance. It can reshape your abdomen, “love handles”, “muffin top”, double chin, inner thighs, outer thigs, upper arms, back, “banana rolls”, and more!
Since CoolSculpting® is non-surgical and non-invasive, that means there is no downtime to your procedure! Once you’ve finished undergoing your treatment, you can return to your normal daily activities, even going to workout!
There have been over 8 million CoolSculpting® procedure performed worldwide and it has become the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment world wide.
ZELTIQ’s CoolSculpting® procedure was invented by Dieter Manstein from Massachusetts General Hospital and Rox Anderson from Harvard Medical School. Cryolipolysis was originally founded from the idea the kids who sucked on enough popsicles would develop dimples in their cheeks.
The CoolSculpting® device underwent clinical trials the same year (2008), and ZELTIQ was awarded an exclusive license to commercialize the technology.
CoolSculpting® was first approved by the FDA for the treatment of fat on flanks (sides) in 2010, and then approved for the stomach in 2012. ZELTIQ introduced more applicators, and a new model for the thighs was approved in 2015.
The temperature of exposure that the cooling produces causes the cell death of fat tissue, without any damage to the overlying skin or nerves in the treated area. As the cooling is applied to the specific areas of your body that you are looking to treat, the fat cells crystallize or freeze and go through apoptosis (cell death).
As the cells die, your body disposes of the fat through its natural waste process. The dead fat cells leave your body and the fat is permanently removed. Your body adjusts to the newly removed fat cells and you start to see a more sculpted you with less fat bulges and other rolls you find unappealing.
The results of CoolSculpting® are proven and last as long as you take care of your body. After your initial treatment, the cells die and you can see results as early as 3 weeks after that treatment. Then, you will see the most dramatic results in 2 months, with results showing even 4 to 6 months after the first initial treatment.
Because the fat exits your body permanently, that means your results with CoolSculpting® can be permanent as long as you actively seek a better or healthier lifestyle. Like any diet, it’s important to continue eating healthy and practicing physical activity to maintain the weight you desire. With CoolSculpting®, it’s very similar. In order for your remaining fat cells to maintain their size and not expand, you need to practice a healthy lifestyle of good food and regular physical activity.
While you may require more than one treatment of CoolSculpting® to achieve your desire results, many patients have found that a routine CoolSculpting® treatment after their plan is complete helps to maintain their sculpted body. Some patients come back once or twice a year after their first treatment plan, just to keep up their healthy appearance. Like visiting the dentist for a routine cleaning, you can have the best hygiene but still need to go in for a dentist’s official clean once to twice a year. CoolSculpting® can also yield the best results with the same upkeep and maintenance.
Here at Body Sculpt Clinic, our patients are the #1 priority when it comes to their CoolSculpting® treatments. It is your body and your goals, so we want to make sure we give you the best attention to achieve the best results possible.
We help you create a customised, unique CoolSculpting® plan that adheres to all the concerns about your body. Whether you want to treat one area or multiple, our certified CoolSculpting specialist will sit with you in your first consultation to talk about your body goals, leading you in the right direction.
Throughout your treatment and beyond, we ensure you receive the best care possible. We make you feel relaxed and comfortable in a non judgemental environment so you have the most positive experience.
Inside The Mind Of An Innovator: How Dr. R. Rox Anderson Discovered CoolSculpting
Sponsored by Allergan/CoolSculpting | January 08, 2020
Within the cosmetic dermatology world, there are few names that garner as much respect as Dr. R. Rox Anderson. The Lancer-Endowed Chair of Dermatology, Professor of Dermatology at Harvard Medical School, and Director of Wellman Center For Photomedicine at Massachusetts General Hospital is responsible for one of the most innovated device launches over the past two decades. After all, he’s the man behind CoolSculpting, the non-surgical fat-reduction technique that transformed the way dermatologists help patients reduce stubborn fat. This is one of the many reasons why Dr. Anderson’s a recipient of the NewBeauty Innovator Award.
To further honor his achievements, we talked with his colleague, Dr. Mathew Avram about Dr. Anderson’s ah-ha moment for CoolSculpting, his enduring legacy, and what’s on the horizon in the world of cosmetic dermatology:
NewBeauty: You’ve worked with Dr. R. Rox Anderson for fourteen years, can you shed any insights on what led him to pursue a career in dermatology?
Dr. Mathew Avram: He was not always a physician, so he’s done other things in life other than being a doctor. Dr. Anderson went to MIT [where he received his Bachelor’s in Science], and then pursued a bunch of interesting things after that. One was working as a teacher, and the other was a camp director. Ultimately, he got into medicine, and I know he was deciding between ophthalmology and dermatology, eventually decided on dermatology.
NB: Can you take us back to the early days and tell us how Dr. Anderson came up with the idea for CoolSculpting?
Dr. Avram: Basically, the idea for CoolSculpting came from an article in the New England Journal of Medicine that discussed how children were losing fat in their cheeks when they were sucking on popsicles. Rox is incredibly creative, incredibly smart, and incredibly persistent and hardworking. Most of us would read an article like this and say, "Oh that's really interesting,” and then go on with our days. Whereas, Rox sees an article like that and figures out a way that it can actually benefit patients in some way — and that's exactly what happened. When he sees a solvable problem that he's interested in, he really thinks about it, he approaches it scientifically, and he's very creative, learning from all the experiments he does along the way. He’s so persistent, he ends up changing the way that we practice medicine. That's kind of the Rox way.
NB: After he read the article, what was the process developing the CoolSculpting treatment like?
Dr. Avram: From a very general standpoint, he got the idea and then they [Dr. Anderson was working with Dr. Dieter Manstein at the time] tested it to see if it worked on samples of fat. They did animal studies, and eventually human studies. I can tell you as someone who was on the advisory board, that there were times when things looked extremely promising and transformative, and then there were other times where it looked like this may not pan out. Ultimately, they were successful after a lot of work and a lot of trial and error.
NB: How was the discovery first received by the medical community?
Dr. Avram: People were skeptical about it because they thought that it seemed too good to be true. Others thought it would be safe.
That changed when doctors saw that people using it were getting good results and that patients were happy. It made them realize that this is something they wanted in their practices. CoolSculpting is a safe and effective way to reduce stubborn pockets of fat. CoolSculpting® is FDA-cleared to treat 9 different areas of the body: visible bulges under the chin and jawline areas, thighs, abdomen and flanks, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks, and upper arms. Some common side effects include temporary numbness, discomfort, and swelling. Individual results and patient experience may vary.
NB: Since CoolSculpting’s debut, how has the approach to non-surgical fat reduction procedures changed?
Dr. Avram: There's been a real change in the way that we treat fat. Before CoolSculpting, generally speaking, the way to remove fat was invasive and surgical. CoolSculpting was a paradigm shift in that you could safely, effectively, and relatively comfortably reduce fat without cutting the skin. That was a totally new concept, and it completely changed the way we looked at fat reduction. It also changed the way patients look at cosmetic treatments, because they realized they could do something with little to no downtime during the lunch break and get real results.
NB: What discoveries are you and Dr. Anderson most excited about now?
Dr. Avram: There are several things that Rox has worked on over the last few years that I find really exciting. One is known as tissue copying. It’s when you harvest tissue from one area, in a fractional manner, so that it doesn't leave a scar, and then use that tissue to help cover an existing scar, improving its appearance. Another thing, which is currently in the FDA process is a product called Cytrellis. This is fractional tissue extraction. Rox developed all the fractional lasers, and fractional lasers keep a small, a percentage of the skin but leaves the surrounding skin untreated. What Cytrellis does is that it removes a fraction of the skin, and it takes little punch biopsies, minute ones, from all over the face and by doing hundreds and thousands of those little punches. It's like a facelift, but not quite as effective.
NB: As a colleague, how do you see Dr. Anderson’s legacy?
Dr. Avram: I see him as the most important innovator in the field of dermatology in the span of my career. He has done this for decades, he does it now, and he will continue to do so in the future by revolutionizing the way we practice medicine. And for Rox, the most important thing at the end of the day is [that what he is doing is] benefiting patients. While we talk a lot about his cosmetic advancements, he's most passionate about medical treatments that affect the lives of patients by solving their problems. He is just as innovative, just as smart, and just as hardworking now as he was when he was a whiz kid in the labs here at Mass General a few decades ago.
NB: Is there anything else readers should know about Dr. Anderson and why he’s so deserving of the Innovator Award?
Dr. Avram: I have worked side by side with Rox at the Mass General Laser Center every week, for the past fourteen years, and he is an excellent clinical dermatologist. He brings this passion for patient care and his inquisitiveness about patient problems to each patient encounter he has. He takes his time to get to know his patients, to help his patients, and to teach the future generation of dermatologists how to approach patients. For all of his amazing innovations and inventions that have transformed our field, the one thing that's overlooked is what an outstanding clinician he is, how good he is to his patients and what great care he provides to them.
The CoolSculpting® procedure is FDA-cleared for the treatment of visible fat bulges in the submental (under the chin) and submandibular (under the jawline) areas, thigh, abdomen and flank, along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll) and upper arm. It is also FDA-cleared to affect the appearance of lax tissue with submental area treatments. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not a treatment for weight loss. Important Safety Information. The CoolSculpting® procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the CoolSculpting® procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. Tell your doctor if you have any medical conditions including recent surgery, pre-existing hernia, and any known sensitivities or allergies. During the procedure you may experience sensations of pulling, tugging, mild pinching, intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, and cramping at the treatment site. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, tenderness, cramping, aching, itching, or skin sensitivity, and sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental or submandibular area treatment. Rare side effects may also occur. CoolSculpting® may cause a visible enlargement in the treated area which may develop two to five months after treatment and requires surgical intervention for correction. Please see full Important Safety Information for additional information.
