body contouring treatments

Body contouring treatments to sculpt and shape

There are multiple reasons why patients seek cosmetic treatments. For some people it is to do with ageing, whereas for others it may be  down to their bodies changing. At Cosmex Clinic, here in Cambridge, our team of medical health care professionals offer a range of body contouring treatments and skin tightening treatments to help you look and feel your best.

If you are looking to firm and tighten the skin of the face or body, one of our expert-led skin tightening treatments could be the solution. For some patients looking for body contouring benefits this may involve energy-assisted treatments alone. For others seeking sculpting to the face and body, a combination treatment plan incorporating injectables such as dermal fillers might be more suitable.

Whether you’re considering skin tightening or body contouring, we tailor all of our treatment plans to you as an individual, making sure patients all enjoy a safe, medically led treatment journey.

At Cosmex Clinic we have various energy-assisted skin rejuvenation treatments that can offer impressive lifting and firming results, including HI-FU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) and radiofrequency skin tightening.

At the clinic we often combine both, or integrate them into a wider treatment plan – either way your treatment journey will be as individual as you are. You can read more about the medical devices we use to transform the face and body here.

We are increasingly seeing demand for body contouring treatments now too. Popular with both male and female patients, we have several unique platforms that can provide not only fat reduction but also skin tightening for specific areas of the body.

Some of our most popular energy-assisted devices include Stratum Reveal, Coolsculpting and SkinTyte, all of which offer different approaches to body sculpting. Some use cryolipolysis (fat freezing) while others rely on ultrasound – a full analysis and consultation will allow us to work out which (or which combination) is most likely to provide you with the best results.

Below you will find some of the reasons why skin tightening and body reshaping treatments are becoming so popular. Contact us if you have any further questions regarding these types of treatments.

Safer than invasive treatments

One of the main reasons to consider an energy assisted alternative to something like liposuction is safety. Unlike surgical alternatives, we can reduce fat from stubborn areas and tighten your skin without using needles or scalpels.

Reliability matters

A popular benefit of body contouring and skin tightening treatments is reliability. Our patients repeatedly tell us how impressed they are with the results and that they can see tangible inch loss and skin firming at the end of their course. Our devices are scientifically backed and the results speak for themselves.

The results are long lasting

Long lasting results are something that we know is important to the patients we treat. They want to be able to enjoy the results of their body contouring and skin tightening treatments for longer than a few months. We provide real synergy between treatments and results that truly last.

Multiple treatment areas can be tackled

A benefit that should never be overlooked is versatility. There are numerous areas of the body that can be treated with the devices we have available, most commonly the abdomen, buttocks, and the upper arms. As well as this, with some devices we can even treat multiple areas at one time in one session.

Getting more information

We know that you will want to do your research, and in order to help you on your journey we offer impartial advice designed to help you make an informed decision.

Is a body sculpting treatment right for you?

When it comes to choosing a non-invasive body sculpting treatment many patients are a little unsure about the long-term benefits to energy-assisted treatments.

The truth is, every aesthetic treatment is different, and each patient will have a different reason for undergoing that specific type of body or skin rejuvenation treatment.

At Cosmex Clinic we make sure that every man or woman who comes through our doors is given a thorough consultation, bespoke treatment plan, and the specific body sculpting treatments or skin rejuvenation treatments they require.

In today’s blog post we will give you 5 reasons to consider undergoing a body sculpting treatment if you’re looking into contouring treatments this summer.

Don’t forget, if you have any questions about the cosmetic treatments we have available please don’t hesitate to contact us, and the team will get back to you quickly. Our information can be found on the contact page.

We have the most cutting edge devices available

When it comes to undergoing body contouring treatments, we’ve really done our research to ensure patients like you are receiving the best that the aesthetics industry has to offer.

Whether we decide to use radiofrequency, HI-FU ultrasound energy or fat freezing, you know you are receiving a body contouring or skin tightening treatment that will really deliver. We have multiple award-winning devices to treat you, including the Coolsculpting, known the world over.

Reliability is important to us too

We appreciate reliability and tangible results matter. Our energy-assisted platforms are widely recognised as being some of the most reliable and versatile devices to improve the shape and contour of the body.

Multiple areas can be treated in one session

Our body sculpting treatments are not only quick but also very comfortable, but most impressively we can often offer multiple treatment areas within one session.  This means you could treat your upper arms, your buttocks and even your abdomen all within a one hour session. It’s a complete body solution!

There is no downtime associated with this form of treatment

One of the main benefits to undergoing a body sculpting treatment is that there is no downtime after the treatment has taken place. This is why you may have heard of these being called ‘lunchtime’ treatments.

This means you can be back at work or back at home with your family in as little as an hour. Aside from a little redness, which usually disappears in the half an hour post-treatment, in most cases there is little evidence that you have undergone any form of aesthetic treatment.

Don’t just take our word for it – the celebrities love it to

You may have seen in the national press recently that famous faces are just as much in love with body contouring treatments as we are. Body reshaping treatments are popular with TV presenters, pop stars and models now.

Step 3 – Discounted Cosmex Skincare Products

Step 4 – Regular reviews and invite to join the VIP Club

We all understand that wearing masks with the Covid-19 pandemic is an important thing to do and will be a part of day to day life for some time to come, but it can cause a number of skin concerns such as acne,  to appear or worsen.

As a leading Aesthetic Clinic based in Cambridge, headed by Clinical Director, Lou Sommereux we understand that every patient has individual concerns about their skin and believe that every treatment plan must be tailored to a patient’s individual needs. So for July and August, we are offering complimentary skin consultation with one of our medical aesthetic practitioners who can talk through your concerns and recommend the best treatment methods. This may simply be changing your skincare routine or one of our many skin care treatments.

All of our complimentary skin consultations take place on the phone or via our virtual consultation system, these can be booked online or by giving us a call at the clinic, we’d love to hear from you!

One of the many treatments we offer that may benefit our patients whilst wear a mask is our HydroMedi Facial, this treatment can be tailored to your individual skin condition and is a perspective facial where we use clinical-grade solutions such as Glycolic Acid to cleanse and break down any debris.  It is our belief that every patient should try a HydroMedi and see the benefits for themselves, so we are offering a £20.00 discount in July & August.

Additionally, with every HydroMedi Treatment, we are also offering a 50% discount on our Cosmex Skincare Reveal, Glycolic Wash, which contains the natural clinically proven AHAs, glycolic and citric acid to gently remove the build-up of dead skin cells together with salicylic acid to remove impurities and excess oil.

MyFaceMyBody Aesthetic Awards

Lou Sommereux, Clinic Director at Cosmex Clinic in Cambridge, the leading aesthetic clinic in Cambridgeshire has been named as a judge for the MyFaceMyBody Awards 2019.

The MyFaceMyBody Awards recognise the amazing work of aesthetic practices, individuals and brands globally. The MyFaceMyBody Global Aesthetic Awards have been quoted by many as “the award to win and be recognized for within the aesthetic sector”. Now in its eighth year, Lou has been appointed a judge in recognition of her high standing in the Aesthetics industry, she will join a panel of 18 aesthetic industry leaders from around the world to judge the 2019 submissions.

As well as being the Clinic Director of the Cosmex Clinic and delivering a range of aesthetic treatments on a daily basis, Lou has a passion for giving back to the Aesthetic industry and goes out of her way to promote best practice and continual development. Her commitment to running an ethical clinic is truly remarkable and is shown by the loyalty of her patients.


Following government guidelines and after a thorough review of our procedures at Cosmex Clinic, we are delighted to announce we will be reopening on Saturday, July 4th, 2020.

We’re currently rearranging all those appointments that were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will then be working through our waiting list. If you would like to book an appointment you can do so via email or telephone. Once we’re back in the clinic online booking will be available again.

We are all looking forward to lighter lock-down measures and a time when we can resume services for you our patients. However, we cannot return to business as usual. I must take extra care to protect both you and the team from contracting the virus and ensure safe treatments in a safe environment.

It seems sensible to begin preparing and planning for reopening once the government gives that permission and that’s what I have been doing over the last few weeks. In fact, I have been a co-author with other senior expert aesthetic nurses writing and researching for the BACN (British Association for Cosmetic Nurses) Anti-COVID guidelines for UK clinics.

Here is a PDF with what to expect when you come to the clinic for treatment. I respectively ask you to adhere to these guidelines and to answer truthfully on the covid disclosure form.

Prior to an appointment you will be offered a video consultation appointment and  before your treatment appointment you will be emailed a covid disclosure and consent form. These need to be completed, signed and returned back to the clinic before we can proceed with treatment. Going forward this will be the new normal.

Patients who had their appointments cancelled due to lockdown will have priority appointments. We also have a separate priority list for those who have enquired about an appointment during lockdown, we will be contacting all on these lists in the next few days to secure your appointment. Please bear with us as we are implementing this remotely.

We can’t wait to see you again and sincerely hope you are staying safe and well.

See you in the not to distance future.

Video Consultation

We are excited to announce that the leading aesthetic clinic in East Anglia, Cosmex Clinic, has now launched a completely new way of doing consultations! We can now carry out initial consultations online from any device with a camera! Easily bookable online, we can discuss your concerns and recommend the best aesthetic treatment options for you prior to you attending the clinic!

The Covid-19 situation has made us rethink how our patients access our incredible team of aesthetic nurses and practitioners, and this new service is the result. We are aiming to be more flexible, save you time and give you the answers to your questions in a quick, safe, and convenient way. There are two types of video consultations that we have launched, these are:

5-minute mini consultations – these are aimed at our patients who want to discuss a particular concern they have or their suitability for a particular treatment

30-minute full consultations – this consultation is a full consultation, as you would expect if you attended the clinic, we can really delve into your skin health and fully explore what aesthetic treatment options are available to you.

You can book either of these video consultations online through our booking system at the top right-hand corner of the screen or by visiting this page:

Prior to your video consultation, you will be required to submit your medical health information, this is all done securely online and means we can offer you the best possible advice during the aesthetic consultation. You will then receive a link which you can click to access our virtual waiting room, at the appointment time one of our aesthetic nurses or practitioners will let you into their virtual consultation room which is completely private and secure. We recommend you are in a well-lit room for the consultation so we can properly see you!

If you are running more than 15 minutes late we may have to rearrange your appointment if we have other patients waiting in the virtual waiting room, however, we will always endeavor to be as flexible as we can during this challenging period.

Following your video consultation, we will send over a personalised treatment plan or an invite to a face to face consultation if we feel further discussion is required prior to treatment. From there we can go ahead and book you straight in for your treatment! (When the clinic returns inline with government advice)

Once we are back in the clinic and offering treatments we will also be launching video review appointments, this will be for those patients that don’t have any concerns post-treatment. We, of course, would love to see as many of you as possible face to face but given the current pandemic, we are more than happy to see you via this new service.

We hope to see you in our virtual waiting room soon!
