What is Fat Freezing?


Cryolipolysis works by chilling the fat cells to such an extent that they are crystallised and naturally evacuated from the body via the lymphatic system.

The Fat-Freezing applicators are applied to the chosen area (on top of a gel pad to protect the skin), using a vacuum to suck the excess fat into the applicator cup. The cooling technology is then applied, lowering the temperature to -6 degrees and thus crystallizing the fat cells. 

After your initial treatment, you’ll be encouraged to drink lots of water and continue exercising as normal. Around 6-12 weeks later, the fat cells that were frozen will have been expelled from the body, resulting in a reduction of fat in the chosen area.

Results depend greatly on the person being treated so the in-depth consultation be important. It’s important to bear in mind that while the freezing of the cells is permanent and they are expelled from the body, to maintain the results a healthy lifestyle is essential. Once new fat cells are formed, they will appear somewhere! In our experience, the treatment is a great reason to start improving your exercise regime and eating habits so that you can be sure to achieve optimum results.

What can be treated with Fat Freezing?

Similar to Fat Dissolving Injections, Fat Freezing targets those areas where fat is easy to put on but hard to take off again, in particular on the upper arms, upper thighs and stomach.

What is involved in the treatment?

Avoiding the need for painful and disruptive surgery, Fat Freezing is just what it sounds like – precisely targeted low temperatures are applied to areas of concern and through natural bodily processes, this frozen fat is eventually broken down and disposed of.

How long will results last?

The results of fat freezing should remain for around 6-12 months. Diet and lifestyle will compliment the effects of the treatment. We will discuss this with you at your consultation before treatment.
