Lisa’s Patient Story

Hi I am Lisa and I am 38 years old. I visited Illuminate Skin Clinic because of my age. When you are younger you get used to looking in the mirror and liking what you see, you don’t feel like you have changed much in your life, but gravity and life just seems to catch up with you and I wasn’t happy with what I saw. This was affecting my confidence. I thought I would come and have a look at the clinic and see what they could offer to help with this.

I came to an open evening about the Coolsculpting. It seemed really interesting,. My background is in fitness, I am a qualified personal trainer, I am very into nutrition. I was fascinated by the concept that you could destroy the fat cells and weight then wouldn’t go on these areas. I was keen to see results as its something I have only ever targeted through activity and nutrition.

I was very reassured talking to Dr Sophie, I am very much one of these people that will ask question after question and I do not stop until I am 100% sure it is the right thing for me. Dr Sophie was extremely patient with me and answered all the question, I felt really confident that this was a good treatment for me. I instantly had confidence in Dr Sophie, she is very approachable and personable. Not to mention very professional. Her kind and sweet manner definitely came across.

I didn’t know what I was expecting the treatment to feel like. I knew it would feel a little bit uncomfortable. How cold it is, is a shock! The suction also caught me a little of guard, it felt uncomfortable, you could say slightly unpleasant although this did subside in 10mins and it then became comfortable. Something I did like about CoolSculpting was the no downtime, unlike a surgical procedure.

I was actually amazed how quickly the results begun to show, especially my waist line. It was quite phenomenal how my waist had just pinched in. I deliberately didn’t restrict my calories as I wanted to see specifically what would happen from the treatment. I went away for a couple of weeks after the results began to show. I drank, ate and enjoyed myself. I came home and decided to face myself in the mirror wondering how much I had potentially put on. I looked in the mirror and OH MY GOD, there was nothing there.

After CoolSculpting I am a lot more body confident. If I go out with a group of mates and I eat out, I now think about enjoying myself. I no longer look at the menu thinking, which meal has the fewer number of calories or can I have a pudding? You eat what you want. That feeling is really lovely. I am so pleased and have had further treatment as I was so impressed the first time. The CoolSculpting treatment has given me my hourglass back, which is just wonderful.
