Fat Freezing

Fat Freezing (Cryolipolysis)

Do you have stubborn pockets of fat that you cannot budge? Let us take care of those!

Cryolipolysis, or commonly called Fat Freezing treatments, are designed to target specific areas, take the fat cells down to a low temperature that causes damage to the cell, and then remove them through the waste system. It is a completely non-invasive, and safe way to target the fat cells, leaving you with up to 25% fat reduction in the area.


Q.      What body areas do we cover with Cryolipolysis?

  • ANY! All areas with fatty tissue may be a target, however, the most popular areas are:
  • Hips, thighs, abdomen, back, and tops of arms

Q.      How does it work?

All of the cells in our body have a minimum temperature in which they can function and survive. We place an anti-freeze membrane on the skin, to protect the skin cells from the cold, and then place a paddle on the area. The paddle acts as a vacuum, sucks the target area tight into the paddle and then lowers the temperature significantly. The fat cells beneath 'freeze', and the damage will then kill the cell - highlighting to the body that it is needing to be taken away by the natural waste system (lymphatic system). Over the 12 weeks after treatment, the body will continue to break down and remove the frozen cells, hence the reason for a healthy lifestyle after treatment.

Q.      Is it safe?

Absolutely, this is a natural body process. We are simply using cell temperature to speed it up a little. As there is added strain on the lympatic system, and the liver and kidneys to process the waste, it is not suitable for everyone, and a full honest medical history should be completed to ensure suitability - however, the processing of waste materials from the body is a completely natural process. You can support your body through the process by increasing the amount of water you drink, not putting additional waste into your body (healthy diet) and remaining active.

Q.      Does it hurt?

No. Some clients report mild discomfort as the pads reach a low temperature, however, anti-freezing membrane is used to protect the skin. Some clients feel that the vacuum produced is a little uncomfortable, however, this soon passes. After treatment, the area may feel numb, tingling or a little solid. This will all ease over the coming days.

Q.      Do I need a patch test?

No, there is no patch test needed. It is crucial however, that you let us know if you have severe sensitivies as an anti-freeze membrane is used on the skin to protect it from the cold. It is essential that you have a full consultation with a therapist prior to treatment to ensure you are receiving the best treatment.

Q.      Do I need more than one treatment to get the full benefit?

Not usually. Fat Freezing should give permanent results, however, it is important to remember, with any weight/inch loss treatment, this is dependent on your own diet and exercise routine. The healthier your diet, the less likely it is that you will regain the fat cells, and the more active you are, the more effective the treatment will be. You can have fat freezing on a different area after 2 weeks. We can repeat the treatment on the target area after 3 months, but it is not recommended to continually do so.

Q.      What other treatments compliment cryolipolysis?

Our recommendation is Radiofrequency. Radiofrequency will also help to reduce fat cells along with toning and firming the skin, and therefore, the two treatments work well together, however, this is done after 2 weeks. You can find out more about radiofrequency here
