Fat freezing (or cryolipolysis) is a natural, safe and non-invasive treatment for removing pockets of body fat.
Fat freezing treatment has been approved by the FDA since 2010 and provides a 26% permanent reduction of fat cells in the treated area.
We can treat bra bulge, muffin tops, belly fat, love handles, upper and lower abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs and under arms.Contact Us - 1300 BODY NO(W) (1300 263 966)
This depends on your starting size and the area that you want to be treated and your desired outcomes. Some clients only require one session (or handle or treatment) on the one area and they are delighted with the results. A normal-weight woman, for example, will obtain approx. 1 -1.5 inches of weight loss from one fat freezing handle on her hip, so with two handles she will lose 2-3 inches of fat.
Most women who have had babies require 2 handles on their lower abdomen – and if their whole belly is round- then will most likely need 4 – 5 handles in a diamond shape. One treatment will give most women a great result- i.e. loss of a dress size however because everyone is so different – with their expectations and their starting shape and size, it is important to speak to us and if possible, attend our clinic in Melbourne for a free assessment.
When we conduct fat freezing on men – we normally do 2 or 4 handles on their abdomen. Again, their starting size – the way the fat lays on their body and what their desired outcomes are – all have an impact on how many sessions that they should have.
We offer free assessments at our Melbourne clinic located in Moorabbin. This is about 20 minutes South East of Melbourne and we are close to the Moorabbin train station. Alternatively – please call Linda on 0433156422 to get a telephone consultation, whereby she can give you an estimate of how many fat freezing handles you will need based on your height and weight.
No- you won’t grow additional fat cells in the area treated with fat freezing under normal dietary and lifestyle circumstances. The treated cells have been permanently removed from your body.
It is currently believed that we lay down fat cells only twice in our life. At birth and then at puberty. After that, we gain weight and lose weight based on the amount of fat that is stored inside these fat cells. (Of course, there is temporary fluid weight too that will impact the scales on a day to day basis).
The current understanding is that at normal weight these fat cells contract and expand with weight loss and gain. However, with large weight gain - all our body’s fat cells can stretch up to four times their normal size, but then, they can actually split – and therefore become two fat cells, both of which can expand and contract. At this point- you will have doubled the number of fat cells in your body and therefore have more places to store excess energy that you don’t burn.
In the area that we have treated with fat freezing, we have permanently killed, and the dead fat cells have been removed from your body. It will only be the existing fat cells that are left on your body that can grow and contract based on your energy intake and output. This is the current understanding regarding the behaviour of fat cells.
Fat freezing works on men too. The physiology of Cryolipolysis is the same for men and women. The targeted tissue is drawn into the fat freezing handle and the cells are taken to -9 degrees centigrade. This causes cell death. Men and women respond the same to treatment and fat freezing for men still requires an assessment for the number of handles or sessions.
Definitely NO. There are so many cheap machines on the market that anyone can purchase on-line which do not work as effectively as our fat freezing machine. These vary from $1500 on eBay and Alibaba to $59,000 wrapped and sold in Australia as an Australian brand. On the old technology there are 2 plates inside of the handle that cool the skin. This causes a lumpy result. The cheap machines also have no feedback mechanisms for temperature regulation causing the client to potentially suffer frost bite or burns on their skin. The cheap machines have set temperatures as -5 degrees however staff can override these temperatures, which is fraught with danger, as skin burns or frost bite can cause permanent scarring. We have seen examples of this. The coolsculpting machine offers only the 2 plates inside the fat freezing handle which is why we chose the clatuu fat freezing machine. This gives the smoothest skin results and best fat loss.
The cheap machines also do not give good results. So even if the price they are quoting is cheap you will need to repeat any session to get any type of visible fat loss.
No – unfortunately anyone can import the cheap machines and tell you they have been trained (ie read the confusing foreign instruction manual). However at our Fat freezing Melbourne clinics we use Registered Nurses who understand cell aetiology, physiology and general medical history as this is important in giving the right recommendations for fat freezing clients. There are potential long term side effects during and after treatment that should be considered. Why would you risk your body and health with someone unqualified?
