Boost Your Results With Fat Freezing.
The non invasive way to get rid of stubborn fat.
How Does Cryolipolysis work?
The Cryolipo cooling applicator generates a vacuum that temporarily decreases blood flow to the treated area, immobilising the fat tissue, and isolating the treated area from surrounding tissue. Areas that can be treated: Love Handles, Belly pouch, flabby arms, inner and outer thighs, saddle bags, inner knees, back fat, bra bulges, double chin etc.
Low temperature ( – 8 °C to -10°C) is then applied to the area in a controlled process, ‘freezing’ the localised area for 45-60 minutes.
Once the cooling procedure is completed, the fat cells are liberated into the lymphatic system and gradually eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic process. Skin isn’t damaged, but subcutaneous fat, which is more sensitive to targeted cold, begins a 2-3 month destruction period after exposure to Cryolipo Fat Freezing. After 8 weeks most clients would lose 1, 5 – 5 cm per treated area.
Usually 1 to 4 treatments are needed depending on the thickness of the resistant fat. Treatments can be repeated at 30 day intervals. It can be used on all skin types and ages.
The ideal candidate for Fat freezing is a person who is mildly above their ideal weight, and cannot shift stubborn pockets of fat. Ideally the candidate should be within 10-15kg of their ideal weight range. Fat freezing is not a weight loss treatment, and does not replace the benefits of proper diet and exercise.
As long as you maintain your healthy diet and exercise, your long term results should remain stable. If you continue bad eating habits and minimal physical activity your results will not last long-term.
To protect the skin an anti-freeze gel pad is placed on the area of treatment. Next, the fat pocket is drawn into a suction/cooling applicator and the machine starts the targeted cooling process. You will experience a slight pulling sensation/pressure sensation and then area will gradually feel intense cold temperature. Within 5 minutes the area will go numb and clients usually relax, sleep, work on their phones/laptop, chat to our friendly therapists about their healthy lifestyle, tips & advice. The handpiece stays in place for 60 minutes and after the applicator is removed you might experience sensitivity/stinging feeling on the area for 2-5 mins as the sensation comes back to the area. Thereafter a massage will be performed on the area to increase blood circulation to the area that helps to normalize the area.
Since this is a non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime. You can return to your normal routine the same day, so there is no need to take off work or skip the gym.
While downtime is minimal, you might experience mild bruising and redness because the cooling applicator repeatedly pulls on your skin in the treated areas. The bruised areas will likely feel tender when you touch them and the soreness could last for a week or 2.
Another side effect that could last for weeks is prolonged numbness. This happens when the cold temperature temporarily damages the nerves around the treated areas. Other side effects include swelling, skin sensitivity, muscle cramping, firmness, cramping, itchy & tingling sensation. The severity of the side effects depends on your skin sensitivity and the areas you have the treatment performed. We have found clients with more elasticity in the areas being treated feel little to no discomfort however clients with more “taut” skin do find the “pulling” sensation to be a little uncomfortable initially until the skin starts to numb.
Fat Reduction & Cm Loss are not instant, while some patients may see results as early as 3 weeks after their first treatment, the most dramatic results are usually seen between 1- and 3-months post treatment. In the weeks following your treatment, your body processes the fat and eliminates the dead cells through the lymphatic system. Depending on your body and the amount of fat on the area, more than one treatment may be necessary to get the desired results as everyone is different and follow different lifestyles (diet & exercise). Fat Freezing is not for weight loss and will not change the number on your scale because you are not losing weight. Losing weight only makes the cells smaller, it doesn’t completely eliminate them like Fat Freezing. Instead, you are freezing and killing fat cells in your body which causes you to lose centimetres, not weight.
Schedule a follow-up appointment for 1 month after your initial treatment. At this appointment, the aesthetic therapists can review your results (cm loss) and discuss possibilities for additional Fat Freezing treatments for other areas or repeat treatments for the same area. Depending on the size of the client and the amount of fat on the area, you will need 1 – 4 sessions every 30 – 60 days
If you can squeeze it, we can freeze it… Usually the lower tummy, top tummy/muffin top, love handles, saddle bags, double chin, bra bulges, back fat, inner thighs, chest, man-boobs or flabby knees are the most common treated areas, but it is important to remember that this is not a procedure for weight loss or for people who are obese. It works best for people who have isolated pockets of resistant fat. Those areas that you can see are struggling to respond to diet or exercise and simply need a different approach.
Extensive testing has shown that cooling only damages fat cells, and other tissues at the treatment site are not affected. The dead fat cells are swept away and discarded by the body’s normal metabolic processes. Because of its non invasive nature; Fat Freezing has considerably fewer risks than other fat reduction procedures. This procedure is considered safe for most patients, although there are certain risks associated with any kind of treatment. Some of these risks may include redness, bruising and reduced sensation in the treated area. These side effects are normal and usually go away on their own after the treatment.
