Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing)
Fat Freezing is a completely non-invasive, safe and effective treatment for the reduction of soft, squeezable pockets of body fat.
Cryolipolysis is clinically proven to non-surgically destroy fat cells. Treatments are quick, pain free and there is no recovery time making this a very popular alternative to traditional liposuction surgery.
Most Fat Freezing treatments take around 1 hour. It is a convenient walk in, walk out procedure that could even be done in your lunch hour! We can treat multiple body areas on the same day, keeping your clinic time to a minimum.
Results gradually become visible over the coming weeks, with best results being seen at around 8 – 12 weeks*. You can treat an area more than once, if required. Many clients choose to treat an area one or two times.
Areas Suitable for Fat Freezing
- Love Handles (Flanks)
- Inner Thighs
- Chest (Men only)
- Double Chin
- Upper Arms
*Disclaimer: Results vary from person to person and are based on factors such as lifestyle and medical history.
Fat Freezing FAQs
What is Fat Freezing?
Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) is the controlled freezing of fat cells to cause apoptosis which is the destruction of the fat cell. When fat cells are exposed to temperatures between -1°C and -10°C they undergo crystallisation. This process produces an inflammatory response which causes the fat cell to shrink and then die. Structures such as skin tissue, blood vessels, and our nervous system are not as sensitive to cold temperatures and are therefore totally unaffected by the treatment. The body removes the damaged cells in the normal way via the lymphatic system and are naturally eliminated from your body over the coming weeks.
What happens during the treatment?
Your therapist will take some before photos and mark up the area(s) you wish to treat. She will position you on the treatment table and make you comfortable. A protective gel membrane is placed onto the area and the device is attached. Suction holds the device in place. You will feel the area go cold and then it will go numb. During the treatment you can relax and watch TV or use our free WIFI. Once the treatment has finished we will massage the area.
Can anyone have Fat Freezing?
Not everyone is suitable for Fat Freezing, some areas of fat are different to others and would not always be suitable for the treatment. Fat freezing can be performed on soft squeezable pockets or areas of subcutaneous fat. With our range of treatments, even if you are not suitable for fat freezing, we can devise a bespoke treatment programme tailored to meet your needs, whatever your body type. Cryolipolysis is not a treatment for obesity or for weight loss. Best results are achieved on clients with a BMI of around 30 or below, or within 3 stone of your ideal weight. If you are looking to lose weight and dramatically change your body shape then we could work with you to help you reach your goals. This could include combining our weight loss programme along with our range of body treatments as you get closer to your desired weight.
How does the treatment feel?
Our fat freezing treatments are non-invasive and painless. Fat Freezing is a unique treatment and does create a few strange sensations. Initially you will feel the suction as the fat tissue is drawn upwards into the device, which you will feel a strong suction. Then as the fat tissue begins to freeze, the area will feel cold or you may experience a tingling sensation in that area. These sensations disappear after 10 – 12 minutes and you will relax for the duration of the treatment. Once the device has been removed the treated area will feel ice cold and numb. Your body will quickly heat up this area and the numbness will disappear soon after.
Is Fat Freezing safe?
Fat Freezing is a safe and effective treatment for fat reduction, however following your treatment you may experience the following side effects:
- Bruising (Flanks, Back and Chins) of the treated area, this can last for up to 5 days.
- Localised numbness can be felt normally for 2 hours to 5 days. In some cases this may last for up to two weeks.
- Area can feel cold and firm, normally lasting between a few hours to a couple of days.
How quickly will I see results?
Following a fat freeze procedure, time frames for seeing results can vary among individuals but we normally advise that best results are achieved around 8 weeks. You will be invited in to review your results at this point. We generally advise that results could start to appear after 6 weeks. Nothing changes over night. You must stick to our aftercare advice and give your results time.
How many Fat Freezing treatments will I need?
The number of fat freezing treatments you have depends on the initial size of the pocket to be treated, your individual goals and the results achieved with each treatment. We normally recommend between 1 and 3 treatments per area. If you are looking to further reduce the area after your initial treatment then we would be able to perform a second Fat Freezing treatment after 8 weeks. Alternatively you can combine your Cryolipolysis treatments with one of our other treatments such as a course of Exilis Elite for enhanced inch loss.
How long do Fat Freezing results last for?
Fat Freezing destroys fat cells in the treated area and those fat cells are eliminated from your body. Results will be long lasting as long as you maintain a healthy weight. Whilst fat freezing destroys fat cells, it does not remove all the fat cells in the treated area. Therefore any weight gained after your treatment could negatively affect your results, as other fat cells could increase in size. At The Body Clinic we strongly recommend that you maintain a healthy weight, by healthy eating and regular activity. To ensure you support your body to achieve the best results possible following your treatment you are advised to follow our aftercare advice. Aftercare advice following your fat freezing treatment – 1. Maintain your weight 2. Drink at least 2.5 litres of water / fluid each day to support your lymphatic system 3. It may also help to reduce your intake of caffeine and alcohol Physical activity or exercise is beneficial on all levels for overall health and weight management. Regular exercise also supports your lymphatic system as the pumping action of your muscles created during movement and activity supports the lymphatic circulation.
