Cryolipolysis Fatfreezing is a slimming technique that uses controlled cooling to reduce fat bulges such as love handles and tummy fat. The term cryolipolysis can be divided into “cryo” which is cold or freezing, “lipo” which means fat and “lysis” which means to break apart. Therefore when combined, cryolipolysis means the destruction of fat cells by freezing or cooling. The fat cells that are exposed to the cold will disintegrate in a process of natural cell death also known as apoptosis. The lipids that are released in this process are progressively eliminated by natural metabolic activities over the three months following the procedure. Regular exercise during this period helps to optimise their elimination. Cryolipolysis affects only fat cells, since they are more sensitive to cold than other cells. Hence fat is removed while sparing neighbouring skin, muscles and nerves. This non-invasive technique offers an alternative to liposuction for those who wish to avoid the risks and recuperation time inherent to surgical procedures. Best results are obtained on patients that have a healthy weight and diet, but wish to get rid of resistant fat bulges. The CryoSculpt hand piece is placed on the treated area. It contains a suction mechanism that will draw and hold the fatty bulge between two cooling panels and these will extract the heat out of the tissue. During the procedure, the Cryosculpt device maintains the treatment temperature at -5°C. A cryolipolysis session lasts r45.min per zone. Areas that can be treated include Tummy Back Love handles Bra fat Arms Legs Cryolipolysis allows a permanent localised elimination of fat cells. Results become visible three months after the session, with a reduction in the thickness of the fat bulge of approximately 30-40%. Patients can lose more centimetres of fat with additional treatments. The Cryosculpt device ensures homogeneous and natural results.

Am I a good Candidate for Fat freezing?
Fat freezing is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Your therapist will determine if treatment is right for you during a free one-on-one consultation.
How long is each treatment?
During your consultation, your therapist will discuss how much time should be allotted based on your individual treatment plan. A typical treatment can last from 45 minutes to an hour and a half depending on the area being treated
What does it feel like?
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates. Many people read, work on their laptop, or even take a nap during their treatment.
Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
Yes you can. The procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Some clients experience redness, minor bruising, tingling, numbness or discomfort in the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely. Often times, clients return to work after the session is over.
When will I see results?
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four months after treatment.
Do I need to follow a strict diet and exercise program?
You do not have to adopt a new diet or exercise habits. Many clients feel more motivated to take care of themselves after the fat freezing treatment, too.
Are the results permanent?
When you have your treatment, the affected fat cells will be permanently eliminated. As long as you maintain your weight with your normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.
What will my results be?
Each treatment results in a significant noticeable reduction of fat in the treated area, typically between 20% to 40%. After the initial treatment is complete, you can attain further reductions with additional treatments, resulting in even more fat loss. Some clients find that just one treatment fully addresses their goals. You and your therapist will discuss and design a plan that suits you best.
What aftercare do I need to follow?
If you can lower or try to avoid carbs and alcohol intake for the first 24-48 hours post treatment this will help the liver process any destroyed fat cells as soon as possible Try to eat natural, unprocessed foods and keep within the daily-recommended calories intake. If drinking alcohol try to keep in moderation, as your liver will process this before the fat cell lipids. We advise you to avoid a hot bath for the first 24 hours but showering is fine. Regular body brushing at home will help to stimulate the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells. We STRONGLY advise to drink at least 2.5 Litre of water per day for the first 6 to 8 weeks. This is a must as this will help to flush out the crystallized lipids in the fat cells post treatment Try to exercise on a regular basis to increase metabolism, which will help with your results.
