‘Fat Freezing’

About Cryolipolysis

Our bodies can be genetically stubborn, especially when it comes to those troublesome areas of fat which no amount of exercise or healthy eating can seem to combat. This difficulty in getting rid of fat can damage people’s self-confidence and leads to drastic decisions such as invasive surgery. At Sculptic Clinic, we have a safer and more affordable alternative to surgery. Cryolipolysis is a new solution to reducing fat, with no scars, no needles, and no anaesthesia.

Cryolipolysis, commonly known as ‘fat freezing’, is a non-surgical liposuction alternative used to reduce specific areas of stubborn fat in the body. Cryolipolysis causes fat cells to crystallise and die through a sophisticated super cooling system. Fat Freezing works by using a special applicator tool, which simultaneously suctions (like a vacuum) and freezes the fat cells in the targeted areas to below freezing temperatures. The non-surgical procedure is a proven method of permanent fat reduction, which has been subject to clinical trials and scientific studies. Fat Freezing has been proven to kill off stubborn fat cells in every session of the treated area by up to 40%. Though this technique is new, Cryolipolysis science has already been well documented. We encourage our clients to diligently research Cryolipolysis before their procedure.

Is Cryolipolysis Right For Me?

Cryolipolysis isn’t right for everyone. It’s best suited for candidates with soft fat pockets on the body, like love handles, upper arm fat, or abdominal fat. Cryolipolysis doesn’t work well with harder fat deposits — the best type of fat for this procedure can be pulled away from the body or pinched.In addition, Cryolipolysis should be only one part of your strategy to reduce fat on your body.

Cryolipolysis cannot and will not eliminate fat in the treatment area, but rather reduce it. It’s true that Cryolipolysis kills fat cells, but it doesn’t prevent your remaining fat cells from expanding and essentially undoing what CoolSculpting did for you. Good candidates for this procedure are still committed to living a healthy lifestyle complete with a balanced diet and regular exercise.Like any cosmetic procedure, there is always a small chance that it may not be the best option for your concerns. Our trained and experienced team will advise whether Cryolipolysis will be a suitable option for you during a face-to-face consultation.

How long does it take to see results?

Every person is unique and has different needs and goals. We find the majority of our clients will see visible results of fat reduction six to 12 weeks post treatment. Clinical studies also support this. Some clients may however see results in as little as 4 weeks. As a result of Cryolipolysis the dead fat cells continue to flush out of the body for up to 6 months. We discuss this further during our free and no obligation consultation.

What does the treatment feel like?

You will feel a light cooling sensation and suction sensation during the Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing treatment. It is safe, non-invasive and there is no downtime after the session, so you can walk in and walk out back to your normal routine.

Cryolipolysis Treatment Advice

Pre Treatment Advice

The pre-treatment advice for clients is fairly simple as opposed to other inch loss treatments. To get the best from the service it is recommended they get their body prepared and ‘cleansed’ for treatment by:

  • Increasing water intake
  • Reducing toxins from the body (caffeine, tobacco, alcohol)
  • Avoid alcohol 24-48 hours prior to treatment
  • Reduce intake of fatty foods, and increase consumption of fruit and vegetables

Post Treatment Advice

Following their treatment, the client should be advised to:

  • Dry body brush the treatment area twice a day working toward the nearest lymph nodes – this helps to stimulate the lymphatic system and accelerate the fat removal.Increase water intake and drink a minimum of 2 litres of water per day to assist with the ‘flushing’ out of the crystallized lipids in the fat cells.
  • Avoid alcohol for 24-48 hours
  • Avoid heat treatments (saunas, steam rooms, sunbeds, etc.) for 24 hours
  • Exercise a minimum of 1 hour per week (advised but not essential)
  • Follow a healthy, balanced diet.
  • Lymphatic massage can also help with accelerating the process of removing the fat cells.
