What is Fat Freezing / Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis, sometimes called Fat Freezing or CryoLipo, is an advanced cooling technology to kill fat cells which results in localised fat reduction. Fat freezing targets fat cells using specific temperatures that won’t effect the surrounding tissue and muscle to crystallise the cells which then get flushed out of the bodies natural system.

How does Cryolipolysis work?

The treatment is carried out by a handpiece being attached to the body using a suction to make it as pain free as possible. The target area is cooled to a safe temperature which crystallises the fat cells, once these cells are crystallised the body will then remove them as part of the natural apoptosis process.

Will I put the weight back on?

By destroying and removing fat cells it should be harder to gain weight in the same area, however not impossible. This treatment should be done along side a healthy diet and lifestyle to get the best possible and long lasting results.

Are there any side effects?

As this treatment is non invasive, there are very little side effects. Most clients will have redness of the skin where the fat has been treated, some clients may have some bruising however these are temporary side effects that will generally last maximum a couple of days. Some clients may experience slight discomfort during the treatment which will gradually decrease once the treatment has finished.

How much fat will I lose?

Following the aftercare and lifestyle advice given to you by your practitioner, clients get an average result of 20%-45% reduction in the treated area.

When will I see the results?

Because we are relying on the body to remove the cells, clients can take anywhere between 6-12 weeks to start noticing the difference. However, everyone is different.

Is it painful?

No! Many people say it feels a lot better than they expected and some people even fall asleep while the treatment is being carried out.

Does it work?

Cryolipolysis is a clinically proven treatment with numerous medical studies to prove its effectiveness.

Is there anyone that shouldn’t get cryolipolysis?

This treatment is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding mothers. There are a few more indications if someone may not be suitable for the treatment, including certain medications, which will be gone over during the consultation.
