What is Cryolipolysis

What is fat freezing or cryolipolysis?

Fat Freezing is the cooling of fat cells to induce fat cell death. The treatment is non-invasive, which means no needles, no bleeding, no anaesthesia. It is a very safe and effective way to remove fat cells permanently. These cells never return or regrow in this area.

Clinical trials of cryolipolysis treatment show a 26% reduction of fat cells in the area treated. With advancement in technology over the last few years including the introduction of a 360* profile in the cooling handle and post treatment massage our clients are experiencing up to a 30% reduction.  If you would like a copy of the clinical trials please contact us.

How does cryolipolysis work?

When fat cells are exposed to cold temperatures the cells die. This is known as apoptosis. Over time these cells are eliminated from the body naturally via the normal metabolism process.

The treatment consists of a specific sized handle which is applied to the chosen area of tissue. The targeted tissue is then sucked into the handle and cold therapy is applied. Traditional cryolipolysis machines have two cooling plates (called peltiers) on the inside of the handle, which when applied, cool the tissue underneath.

At out clinics we have the option of 2 systems, therefore offering you the best sized applicator for the area you want treated. Our 360° applicators cool the entire surface of the applicator head which therefore cools greater amounts of tissue providing  a larger area of cells cooled and a smoother result. This provides a better result than the more traditional double peltier (plate) applicators.

Our clinicians will assess your body and will choose the correct handle for your fat freezing session.

What are the results?

The clinical trials conducted in 2014 show a 26% reduction(fat loss) in fat in the treated area. With advancements in equipment, new treatment recommendations (post treatment massage) and the introduction of a 360° cooling handle we are seeing greater results with our clients. Our clients are achieving up to a 30% reduction of fat in the treated area.

You will begin to see results within 2-3 weeks of your fat freezing treatment. Your body will slowly eliminate the dead adiopytes (fat cells) through your normal metabolic function. At 12-16 weeks, you will be able to see the complete results of your fat loss treatment. Visit our success stories page to see our patient results.

Is it safe?

Yes. Because it is non-invasive there is less risk than liposuction and there is no risk of burns like laser lipolysis. The technology has been approved for the reduction of fat since 2009 in Europe and by the FDA in America since 2010.

Most patients experience slight tugging and discomfort at the site (as the tissue is drawn in). Once the tissue is cold there is normally no pain. After treatment the area may feel sensitive or sore (like it has been bruised) but this usually resolves within 1-3 days.

How much does it cost?

Our regular treatment costs are $495 per applicator / handle. We also offer 2 packages, of multiple handles. We will discuss your desired results and the number of handles recommended during a phone consultation or during your free assessment appointment.

We also offer special discounts and promotions from time to time. To stay informed of our offers subscribe here.

Further information on the cost of fat freezing is on our cost page. Financial assistance may also be available. Speak to our staff to explore your options.

When you have fat freezing treatment with Beautiful Body Clinics, though our alignment with Buy1Give1.com  a global giving initiative, every time we flatten a belly we fatten the belly of someone in need in in Africa or Asia.  Check out our contributions at the bottom of this page.

How many treatments will I need?

To treat love handles / muffins tops, for example, you will need 2 applicators (one each side) to provide an even body sculpting result. For the abdomen, you may need 1, 2 or 4 applicators depending on the size and shape of your belly fat and the results you desire.

Depending on the amount of fat, a repeat cycle can be applied to any area 60 days after the initial treatment, should you want a further reduction of fat in that area.

We are able to freeze fat on inner thighs, outer thighs (saddlebags) bra area, (bra bulge), flanks, waist, hips, upper and lower abdomen, under arms, and back of thighs.

With cryolipolysis we sculpt and contour your body.

Please contact us for a free assessment. We can then discuss your desired outcomes, results, treatment options and the costs. We will personalize a treatment program for you.

Is cryolipolysis right for me?

As cryolipolysis freezes the fat cells on the treated area, the treatment is suitable for everyone, provided we are able to gain a suitable amount of tissue into the applicator head. The size and location of fat pockets are different on every individual therefore we are happy to conduct a free assessment for suitability.

We also appreciate that we all have our own idea of how we want to look. We do not judge as we have all been there. What one person believes is fantastic and what feels great may not be right for another. We appreciate that low weight and underweight people can have pockets of fat that they can’t get rid of despite diet and exercise, however we do take a very responsible attitude when recommending treatment for underweight clients. Ideally our clients will have a BMI of between 18 to 30. For clients with a BMI higher than 30, the treatment will still work but the results will not be as visible.

Certain medical conditions and medications (particularly blood thinners) need to be considered/ paused before cryolipolysis treatment. This will be discussed over the phone and during your pre-treament assessment.

BMI CALCULATOR

Feel free to use the BMI calculator below to ascertain your BMI. (Body Mass Index) Your BMI is a measurement of your body fat/weight/height ratio. It gives a general indication of the amount of fat that you carry on your body.
Although Fat freezing isn’t dependent on you BMI it will assist us in discussing your treatment options and the approximate costs during a phone consultation.
