Fat freezing or Cryolipolysis which is its technical name, is the treatment of cooling your fat cells down to a level in which they will be destroyed. The ultimate temperature to do this is minus 10 degrees celsius. This will destroy fat cells in 90 percent of people This is not a weight loss treatment but a body contouring treatment. It is great if you are happy at the weight you are at but you just can’t shift the stubborn bulges of fat that look unsightly.
How is the treatment done?
Firstly we will consult with you on the areas you are worried about and make an assessment if they are suitable. We will then mark out the areas and check with you that are happy with the area we will be working on. The heads of the machine are then placed on the area and it will then apply suction that will suck the fat up. This ensures only the area we are wanting to treat is cooled. The machine then cools the tissue to minus 10 degrees for 50 mins while you relax.
What sort of fat does it work on?
It will only work on collections of fat. You must be able to grab the fat in your hand for the treatment to be able to work effectively in our machine.
Is it safe?
Absolutely. This is a non-invasive, non-surgical way to get rid of your stubborn fat. With no downtime. There are no adverse effects from the treatment as long as it is done by trained technicians. The worst that can happen is that you are one of the 10 percent that we call a ‘non responder’.
How much fat will I lose?
In most people they lose 20 percent of the fat cells over the 8 weeks following the treatment. The destroyed fat cells get removed via the lymph system so we advise coming in for regular lymphatic drainage or ensuring you go for a brisk walk daily to ensure maximum results.
How soon can I have my next one?
We like to wait 3 months between treatments on the same area but a different area can be done straight away.
First area $300
Second area $200
Third area $150
