What is Body Sculpting and Non-Surgical Fat Reduction?

Body Sculpting and Non-Surgical Fat Reduction involves helping patients to shed unwanted pockets of fat and achieve tighter-looking skin without surgery. What’s great about these procedures is that they are non-invasive. Unlike traditional surgical fat reduction treatments, you won’t end up with nasty scars and there’s no risk of infection. You simply let us know which area you want to shape and tone, and let us work our magic!

What type of Body Sculpting and Non-Surgical Fat Reduction treatments do you offer at Southern Cosmetics?

We offer Cooltech for body contouring; TightSculpt for sculpting and skin tightening, and Belkyra/ Kybella injections for non-surgical chin reductions.


This is one of our most popular treatments at Southern Cosmetics! The revolutionary, non-invasive Cooltech® machine effectively removes pockets of fat, without the pain or risks associated with traditional fat-reduction treatments. It’s clinically proven to be a safe and effective means of achieving full body contouring and fat reduction. If you have any stubborn pockets of fat around the waist, thighs, flank, knees, buttocks or chin, this could be the treatment for you!

How does the Cooltech non-surgical fat reduction treatment work?

Using a scientifically proven cooling process called ‘cool assisted lipolysis’, the Cooltech® system targets fat cells permanently, without damaging the surrounding tissue. The device has several applicators, so we can target and sculpt different areas of the body. There are no needles, no incisions, no downtime and no garments!

So, what’s involved? During the treatment, the area being treated is covered with a cool gel pad. The Cooltech applicator sucks the fat tissue into the cooling system using a vacuum, then cools the tissue down using temperatures of between 3ºC and 8 ºC. This controlled freezing process destroys fat cells, which are then metabolised by the body.

Who is this fat reduction treatment suitable for?

Cooltech is suitable for individuals with specific areas of fat they’d like to target. The technology is designed to treat localised pockets of fat, rather than being an all-over weight loss solution. Having said that, patients of all shapes and sizes can transform their figure with Cooltech. Please book in for a consultation and we’ll explain whether Cooltech can help you reach your goals.

How does this fat reduction treatment feel?

A Cooltech treatment is relatively painless and no anaesthetic is required. As the Cooltech applicator sucks the fat tissue into the cooling system, you may experience a tugging sensation. However, it’s not overly uncomfortable and you may even like to read a book or a magazine to pass the time!

After the treatment, your skin may look raised, red and lumpy, but this should subside relatively quickly. Gently massaging the area will help break down the fatty tissue and assist with lymphatic drainage.

When will you notice a change?

After one treatment, patients can expect to see 20% – 30% fat reduction in the treated area. Results can be seen in as little as 15 days after the first treatment, with more dramatic results visible after eight weeks.

How many sessions are usually required?

Most patients require one to two sessions per area. These sessions are performed eight weeks apart. In some cases, it may be necessary to perform three treatments on an area.

If you’re looking to target stubborn flab and tighten your skin, the TightSculpt may be for you! Our non-invasive, TightSculpt laser treatment sculpts and treats skin laxity on all areas of the body. It’s particularly great for post-baby bellies, skin laxity under the arms or saggy skin above the knees.

How does the TightSculpt treatment work?

Unlike the Cooltech, which freezes fat cells, the TightSculpt treatment essentially “melts fat” using laser technology to heat and destroy fat cells through the skin. As the laser heats the tissue, it encourages the metabolism of fat cells, while also stimulating collagen and improving skin laxity. This non-surgical fat reduction treatment is safe and effective!

Who is the treatment suitable for?

It’s important to keep in mind that this is not an overall weight loss solution. This fat reduction treatment is suitable for those looking to eliminate fat deposits (for example, cellulite) and tighten skin. Please book in for a consultation and we’ll explain whether this treatment is right for you.

How does a treatment feel?

No anaesthetic is required for the TightSculpt treatment. You may experience a sensation of warmth during the procedure, but it should not be uncomfortable.

When will you notice a change?

It depends on the patient, but some see results after the first session. We usually recommend a course of treatments for optimal results.

How many sessions are usually required?

We often recommend three to six treatments per area, performed two to four weeks apart. Your clinician will explain how many sessions may be required to achieve the results you desire.

Non-surgical Chin Fat Reduction

At Southern Cosmetics, we offer a safe, non-surgical solution for those looking to get rid of their double chin, or submental fat. Our non-surgical chin reductions involve injecting deoxycholic acid below the chin area to dissolve fat cells.

How do the Non-surgical Chin Reduction treatments work?

Deoxycholic Acid is found in the body in bile acids and breaks down the fat in our diet. Deoxycholic Acid is administered by a series of small injections into the area below the chin. Once injected, it destroys the fat cells and they never return! A small grid is placed on the area to determine the number of injections needed and we apply ice beforehand to numb the area.

Who is the treatment suitable for?

Most men and women can be treated with impressive results. If you have a pocket of fat under your chin which can be “pinched” between the fingers, it can usually be treated.

How does a treatment feel?

We use ice to numb the area to be treated, thereby helping to minimise any discomfort. After the injection, the area may feel temporarily warm. If you do experience pain after the treatment, please speak to us about the best pain relief solution.

When will you notice a change?

After the treatment, patients often experience temporary swelling. This may last anywhere from four to seven days. Some people also experience transient numbness and bruising in the treated area.

Results vary depending on the size of your submental fat (double chin) and how much loose skin is present. Typically, you’ll see an improvement in the contour along the jawline within four to six weeks.

How many sessions are usually required?

We usually recommend two to three treatments, with results visible six to eight weeks post-treatment.
