What is Cryolipolysis and how does it work?
Cryolipolysis also known as fat freezing is an incredible innovative non-invasive treatment offering fat reduction without having to undergo liposuction. It is a great treatment used to deal with areas which have stubborn fat.
The Cryotherapy machine freezes an average of 20-40% of the fat cells in the treated area. The entire fat cell in turn crystalises, dies and is then absorbed naturally through the body’s lymphatic system and dispelled via the liver/kidneys.
Once the machine has been attached to the desired area via suction, it does not harm any other area that has not been chosen to undergo the treatment.
Our Cryotherapy machine is able to treat two areas at the same time, thus giving an amazing long-term result, faster.
How long does it take to see results from Cryolipolysis?
After your first session, results can be seen 4-12 weeks later, depending on how quickly your body processes the dead fat cells.
However, unlike other clinics that offer Cryotherapy, we incorporate an innovative new treatment called Shockwave, up to 4 times after your Cryotherapy treatment, once a week.
Shockwave therapy helps to stimulate the breakdown of the fat cells, encourages better lymphatic drainage and thereby is able to eliminate the fat cells quicker.
Which areas can be treated with Cryolipolysis?
Areas which show amazing results from Cryolipolysis or Fat Freezing are:
- Upper Stomach
- Lower Stomach (Muffin tops)
- Upper Arms
- Flanks (Love Handles)
- Outer Thighs
- Inner Thighs
- Upper Back (Bra fat)
- Lower Back
- Chest Male (Moobs)
How many sessions of Cryolipolysis are needed?
Cryotherapy or Fat Freezing is usually a one-off treatment, however, this differs from person to person.
Multiple treatments can be had to reach the desired result. Usually, treatments can be taken every 3 months on the same area.
However as we have included Shockwave therapy in your treatment free of charge, you are able to have your treatments only 6 weeks apart.
What happens during a Cryolipolysis session, and does it hurt?
Before we start your treatment, we will go through a thorough consultation with you and you will be measured and weighed as well.
Once the treatment starts, an anti-freeze pad will be applied to the chosen area to protect the skin from the freezing elements.
The Cryotherapy handpiece will be placed on top of the pad, and the suction cup will pull the fat into it. Cryotherapy or fat freezing does not hurt and does not require any anaesthetic.
However, the area treated will be frozen to about -11 degrees so that it will become sensitive and numb from the cold, and you will feel the suction pulling on the skin. The treatment itself will last about 30-45 min depending on the size of the area treated.
