At our clinic, we are constantly looking for the latest technology and innovative treatments for body contouring and we are happy to introduce Fat Freezing to our portfolio of treatments.
Cryolipolysis or Fat Freezing is a non-invasive, safe fat removal procedure, it is known by many different names including Cryo Lipo, Ice Liposuction, Cryogenic Lipolysis.
Fat-freezing treatment can reduce stubborn body fat that is difficult to lose by diet and exercise alone, using the controlled cooling process of cryolipolysis to target and crystallize fat cells.
With Cryolipolysis, fat cells are permanently destroyed due to the cooling of subcutaneous fat, which induces lipolysis, the breaking down of the fat cells.
This novel non-invasive technology uses controlled cold exposure to influence a gradual reduction of the subcutaneous fat layer using natural thermal diffusion.
The fat is cooled to a controlled temperature resulting in the fat cells to crystallise and die, without causing damage to any of the surrounding tissues, nerves or the skin.
Results can start to be seen in as little as three weeks from the first treatment, further and improved results can be seen when the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these fat cells through the lymphatic system. This process continues for up to six months.
Fat Freezing can benefit anyone who wants to improve the shape of their body and reduce stubborn pockets of fat, which are difficult to lose by diet and exercise and it can treat most areas of the body including:
- · Abdomen
- · Double chin
- · Flanks – Love handles
- · Back fat
- · Bra fat
- · Thighs (inner and outer)
- · Gynecomastia – Male Breast
- · Knees
Many patients achieve significant fat loss and changes in their body contours after just one treatment.
Crystallized fat cells gradually die and are naturally eliminated from the body. In the weeks and months following the treatment, the remaining fat cells condense, reducing the fat layer.
During the treatment it is normal to experience a firm pulling sensation on the area being treated. The cooling process should then numb the area after a few minutes following the procedure. Some patients report a pinkish appearance at the treatment area that may last several hours post treatment.
Advantages of Fat Freezing
This revolutionary technology is a new approach to fat reduction which does not involve surgery.
Unlike traditional liposuction, with Cryolipolysis there is no downtime, swelling or discomfort, as the controlled cooling system ignores healthy skin and nerve cells and only freezes fat cells. These fat cells then crystallise and are broken down by the body’s natural defensives.
This has made the Fat-freezing one of most popular non-invasive fat reduction treatments with over few millions procedures performed across the globe.
