Fat Freezing (cryolipolysis) is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that freezes a proportion of the fat cells to the point in which thet crystallise and die.
Over the coming weeks after the teatment, the body begins to metabolise and excrete these dead lipid cells using a natural process called apoptosis. On average, around 30% of the fat cells in the area will be permanently lost.
The treatment works by targeting a specialised type of fat cell that is involved in regulating the body’s temperature. Therefore, when the cells are exposed to the low temperatures, the cells are forced to be sacrificed by the body in order to maintain a suitable environment for the other cells to carry on working. A suction pad is used to ‘suck’ the area into the device and the client will then experience a cooling sensation on the area that will eventually go numb to minimise the initial slight discomfort. The surrounding tissue, including the skin that has the suction pad on, remains unaffected by the treatment as it is protected by an antifreeze membrane.
This treatment can be carried out on many areas of the body including the stomach, buttocks, thighs and back.
Results are generally seen between 2 and after 12 weeks after treatment, the full results should be obvious. The In general, 3 treatments evenly spaced over 3 to 4 months is recommended in order to achieve the best results. In addition to this, 2-3 litres of water should be consumed each day for 12 weeks after each session alongside a healthy diet.
Although the treatment is usually well tolerated with little to no side effects, light bruising is possible that will usually fade after a day or two.
Other than this, there is no down time with this treatment and all usual daily activities can still be carried out afterwards.
