FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Am I A Candidate For Cryolipolysis
The ideal candidate for Cryolipolysis, or ‘fat freezing’, is for a person who is mildly above their ideal weight, and cannot shift stubborn pockets of fat. Ideally the candidate should be within 10-15kg of their ideal weight range. Fat freezing is not a weight loss treatment, and does not replace the benefits of proper diet and exercise. It does not treat obesity.
What Happens To The Fat?
Cryolipolysis specifically targets fat cells and lowers their temperature to a range between -6 to -9 degrees causing them to crystalize. No other structures are affected by this process. The remaining content of the fat cells is disposed of naturally through the body’s lymphatic system. The results are proven, long lasting and noticeable.
What Areas Can Be Improved With This Cryolipolysis?
This treatment is best for targeting stubborn areas that won’t respond to changes in diet and exercise. Our clinicians have found inner thighs, the lower abdomen, and ‘muffin tops’ respond well to this treatment. It is not unusual for our therapists to use this technique in combination with other technologies to get the best results on your body.
Are The Results Permanent?
Permanent. As long as you maintain your weight and your normal diet and exercise, your long term results should remain stable.
What Results Can I Expect From This Treatment?
Results will be noticeable 2 to 6 weeks after beginning treatment. Full results are measurable at approximately the 12 week mark depending on your body’s metabolic rate. Our therapists will book you in for your follow up appointment.
What Will I Experience During This Treatment
To protect the skin an anti-freeze pad is placed on the area of treatment. Next, the fat is drawn into a suction cup and the machine starts the targeted cooling process. You will experience a slight pulling sensation and the area will feel cold. Within minutes the area will go numb. The handpiece stays in place for 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated
This treatment must be performed by a trained therapist. Our Body Specialists are trained therapists that specialise in aesthetic, non-surgical, non- invasive body transformation procedures.
How Does It Work?
Studies show that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than surrounding body cells, meaning no other cell is damaged in the process of fat freezing. Once the Cryolipolysis procedure is completed, the body then proceeds to absorb the damaged cells and eliminate them through normal metabolic process i.e the liver and lymphatic system over two to four months. The removal of fat is completely safe and natural, which is why it’s a very popular non-surgical alternative to treatments like liposuction.
