Fat Removal – Cryolipolysis

What Is It?

Fat reduction is a non–surgical method to destroy fat cells called cryolipolysis. It means that fat cells are frozen and destroyed without having to undergo surgery or invasive liposuction procedures.

It is a fat reduction and sculpting treatment, not for weight loss. This treatment can successfully reduce and sculpt the targeted area resulting in a more defined sculpted shape.

Results Achieved

This treatment destroys 20-40% of fat cells. The cells are frozen and are programmed to die, which means the body slowly removes them naturally, just as it removes thousands of dead cells every day.

This process means it takes 2-4 months for the fat removal and sculpting to be complete.

Common Queries Regarding This Procedure

How does it work?

A protective barrier is applied to the skin to protect the skin from the freezing. The fat cell is targeted and a temperature of -6 degrees is applied for approximately 30 minutes.

How long does it last?

The fat cells are permanently destroyed resulting in reduced fat cells. This reduction in fat cells makes it less likely for fat to be stored here in the future.

In saying that, if there has been a lot of weight loss, and weight is piled on again, it  can still eventually build up in the treated area.

For whom is it not suitable?

It is not suitable for obese clients.

Can it be combined with other treatments?

A very popular treatment to enhance the result is to combine other body sculpting treatments such as skin tightening and cellulite treatment.

Is it sore?

It isn’t painful at all. Initially a vacuum and cooling sensation can be experienced but this feeling diminishes within a few minutes.

What it is used to treat?

It is for pockets of fat. It does not treat obesity or large areas of fat.  For larger areas of fat, cavitation is more appropriate.

Are there any risks or side effects?

Risk of bruising where the vacuum is applied.

What is the recovery time?

No down time – you can carry on as normal. Occasionally bruising can result, due to the vacuum being applied to the skin.
