You can relax in our discrete and stylish clinic in confidence that your treatment will be overseen by our medical staff throughout your procedure, using technology that is the world’s #1 non-invasive fat reduction system.
FDA cleared and CE marked safety stamps of approval with medically proven results. This revolutionary technology targets and freezes fat, permanently and safely. The results are as good as liposuction and sometimes better. So much so that many plastic surgeons are favouring CoolSculpting ahead of liposuction.

We recommend avoiding anti-inflammatory tablets/food and supplements after a treatment for 3 months. The removal of fat cells is an inflammatory process which should not be suppressed. It is also encouraged to massage the treated area for a couple of minutes a day in the shower. ZO skincare has a great cellulite cream which can also assist the breakdown of the fat cells.
Thank you Lorraine and Karen for making me feel so comfortable and at ease during my CoolSculpting treatment. The four hours actually flew by aided by lots of coffee, biscuits and magazines! I wish I had booked in sooner but I am now looking forward to showing off the results. The clinic itself is set in beautiful, tranquil surroundings and I will definitely be returning soon for further treatments. Thank you so much.
What a beautiful serene location! The experience was wholly positive from the moment I arrived. Aesthetics is such a personal experience & journey, which Dr Hill & her staff are extremely sensitive to go out of their way to fully explain the treatments, putting one at ease.
It’s been a few weeks since my CoolSculpting treatment & the results are incredible!
My bras were starting to cut into me on the sides & wearing them was becoming really uncomfortable, due to the ugly ‘pudgy’ bits which had developed over the years. No amount of exercise seemed to make much difference, so I decided to try this procedure… I’m so glad I did!!
If I had known I could get rid of my double chin so simply without surgery, I would have done it a long time ago! It has restored my self-confidence and self-esteem; I no longer look in the mirror and feel negative about myself.
Only 5 weeks since my CoolSculpting, the results are nothing short of dramatic. I certainly don’t expect perfection, but the reduction in fat is my chest is amazing. It’s a great boost in my confidence and I’m able to wear clothes I haven’t been able to wear for years
A fantastic clinic with professional informed staff who have a passion for making even the ordinary of us feel extraordinary. A hidden gem of a clinic for, cutting edge treatments with discrete, medically qualified staff who display integrity, honesty and affordable life changing solutions. Highly recommended!
Hampton clinic is very private and tranquil. The staff are both friendly and professional. I have had several aesthetic treatments, in particular CoolSculpting got rid of my belly roll and I can now wear jeans and t-shirts again. Ultherapy tightened my face although it was tender for a few weeks. I have had Botox which has transformed my face by getting rid of my scowl. I had Plexr to remove some unsightly moles which was very quick and easy. I would highly recommend Hampton Clinic to anybody and I have found Dr Hill to be trustworthy in her advice and very good at what she does.
Every visit has been a very positive experience. Given her medical background, I trust Dr Hill 100%. She is highly aware of hygiene protocols as well as being dexterous and gentle during treatment. To top it all she is both approachable and charming!
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
The CoolSculpting procedure works by delivering controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin, without harming any other tissues. The frozen fat cells are crystallised, then die.
During the following few weeks the crystallised, fat cells condense and shrink. The bodies scavenger cells remove these dead cells, take them into the blood stream and excrete them out through the urine, leaving a more sculpted you.
Clinical studies have shown that the fat does not remain in the body and that cholesterol levels do not increase.
What areas can be treated?
CoolSculpting is ideal for people who are within 2 stone of their ideal weight and who have areas of soft pinch-able fat eg:
- Abdomen (Tummies and post baby bulges)
- Muffin tops, love handles and flanks
- Inner and outer thighs
- Bra bulges and back fat
- Upper arms/bingo wings
- Man Boobs
- Double chin
- Banana rolls under buttocks
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment but it is fantastic at de-bulking, sculpting and contouring the body.
What does the treatment involve?
During your free consultation with our doctors, a full medical history will be taken to assess your suitability. The benefits, and any potential side effects, will be discussed in full, and a consent form completed.
- Before treatment the target areas will be photographed and marked out.
- To begin the treatment the appropriate machine head (the CoolSculpting machine has varying sized heads depending on the body area to be treated) will be positioned on the target area of your body.
- A suction will draw the fat bulge gently into the cooling applicator. The sensation you will feel will be firstly a firm, but gentle pull, and then intense cold. The first 10 minutes may feel strange and uncomfortable, but this will soon subside.
- The treatment will take a total of 35 minutes per area being treated.
- At the end of the treatment the CoolSculpting applicator will be removed.
- The frozen area will be massaged vigorously for 2 minutes, this massage results in 68% more fat cells being destroyed than if no massage were performed.
How long does it last?
Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks after your treatment, with the most dramatic results being seen after one to three months. Your body continues to flush out fat cells for up to 6 months after treatment.
There is permanent loss of fat cells, so unlike Botox which needs repeating regularly, a CoolSculpting treatment lasts a lifetime, it is a long-term investment!
Is it painful?
During your treatment, a, gel pad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Vacuum suction draws the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel pulling, tugging or mild pinching. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat so you may feel intense cold, but this sensation typically subsides within 5-10 minutes as the area becomes numb. Many people read, watch movies or sleep during their sessions. At the end of the treatment time we perform a 2minute massage. Everyone’s experience of this is very different, from describing the areas as being so numb that they can’t feel anything, to being really sore and painful. Occasionally clients may experience a chilblain burning sensation as the area warms up.
Are there any side effects?
You may get bruising. The next day you will feel sore and tender to touch and may have some swelling, this will last only a few days. There can be prolonged numbness lasting several weeks, this is not unpleasant, just an altered sensation, and it always returns to normal.
On day 5 after the treatment, 1 in 5 people will get delayed onset pain. This is where the nerves are just starting to defrost and become oversensitive, the nerves can send shooting pains. Most cases are very mild, but a small number a people can get severe delayed onset pain. This can be managed with neuralgia tablets.
The benefit of this treatment, compared to invasive treatments such as Vaser, Laser Lipo and Liposuction, is that there really is no downtime. Immediately after the treatment you can drive yourself home, return to work and resume your normal daily activities.
How many treatments will I need?
This will depend on the size of the area to be treated, the number of areas to be treated and the degree of transformation you wish to achieve. Typically, most patients have 2 treatments or more, especially if the treated areas are on opposite sides of the body.
Should you wish to target more than one part of your body our “Treatment to Transformation Programme” delivers maximum fat reduction for total body contouring, which can require up to 12 treatments.
One treatment will eliminate between 20-40% of the fat treated, you can treat the same area more than once if you wish to lose more.
Are you left with loose skin?
If your skin is in good condition it will retract back due to its elasticity. That is the beauty of the gradual loss of fat, it allows the skin to gradually shrink. If, however, you have poor quality skin with lots of stretch marks, there is a risk of skin becoming looser.
Does the fat come back?
This treatment is ideal for people whose weight is stable. Once the fat cells are destroyed they are gone for good. However, if you put weight on, remaining fat cells can get larger. In practice, you find those who do put on weight on find weight goes to other areas, rather than returning to your problematic area.
Is it safe?
Yes. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other cells, so the precision cooling affects only fatty tissue leaving the skin and remaining structures unharmed.
The machine also has the safety stamps of approval for medical machines, American FDA clearance, and European CE-marking. These rigorous procedures ensure the machine has proven to be safe and effective.
How much does it cost?
CoolsSculpting is priced per cycle. One cycle is about the size of your hand. The starting price per cycle is £800, but the more areas you treat the more cost effective it becomes. Package prices come down to £500 per cycles, and if we retreat the same area more than once, we will retreat at £250 per cycle.
Do you guarantee results?
CoolSculpting treatment results follow a normal medical bell-shaped results curve. 92% of people will get a very good result with between 20-40% fat loss, at the far right of the curve you have a few “super-responders” who lose more than 40%. At the bottom end you get poor responders who get less than 20% loss. We monitor result with before and after photographs. If no result is achieved, then we would do a complimentary retreat treatment.
How long before you see results?
You can start seeing results as early as 3 weeks, however, most people will see their best results by 3 months.
