Cryolipolysis (fat freezing)

How it works

Cryogenic lipolysis is the latest scientifically proven and FDA approved inch loss method, developed by scientists at Harvard Medical School. Using the most powerful inch loss platform on the market, adipocyte (fat) cells are targeted by cooling technology. Such cells are particularly sensitive to cold and consequently are destroyed. The dead cells are then naturally metabolised and eliminated from the body over an 8-12 week period.

What is involved

The process is non invasive and requires no recovery time. You can drive, move around and exercise following treatment. It is generally a pain free experience although it is possible you may experience some discomfort during the process. Allow 1 hour for your appointment although the actual treatment time is 45 mins. With the latest technology, there is no need for longer treatment times. Your therapist will explain the process and ensure that you are comfortable throughout the process. The process involves a vacuum suction which lifts the area to be treated. This can result in some temporary redness of the skin or bruising. A cold anti freeze membrane is placed over the area to protect the skin during treatment.

Results

Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) can produce amazing results. The process results in a permanent reduction of fat cells making it more difficult for fat to adhere to the area treated. Results are  not immediate and a gradual reduction will be experienced providing a natural looking result. Results may vary from person to person and over indulgence can still lead to weight gain. Typically the procedure results in a 26-40% reduction in the treated fat layer within 2-3 months.

Benefits of combining cryolipolysis with other treatments

Laser lipo

Laser lipo will temporarily shrink the fat cells. If laser lipo is performed prior to the cryolipolysis treatments, more fat cells can be destoyed in each session as more fat cells will be drawn in to the treatment cups. This translates in to superior inch loss results than achieved by cryolipolysis alone.

Cavitation

Cryolypolysis will generally produce results up  to 12 weeks after treatment. Cavitation causes fat cells to implode. It can help speed up the process of eliminating the dead fat cells from the body and therefore the inch loss results can be seen more quickly than if cryolipolysis alone was used. Allow at least 72 hours after cryolipolysis before having cavitation.  

Skin tightening

Once you have achieved your inch loss results, you may need a course of RF skin tightening. You can combine sessions of cavitation with skin tightening.
