Fat freezing is treatment which is designed to freeze and therefore destroy fat cells.

Fat Freezing/ Cryolipolysis

What is Fat Freezing/ Cryolipolysis?

Is your fitness regime not giving you the results you want? No need to cryo! A treatment which is designed to freeze and therefore destroy fat cells, ultimately aiming to assist you in reaching your weight management goals. Fat freezing is non-invasive and its technology has been approved by the FDA. The Cryo handle is applied to the treatment area targeted for fat loss. The handle uses advanced cooling technology to selectively target fat cells and freeze them. This procedure of fat removal by fat freezing is known as apoptosis (controlled cell death) and is gradually eliminated from the body through the body’s natural waste disposal system. When fat cells are subjected to being cooled below body temperature the freezing causes the fat cells to die followed by a local inflammatory response. 

When fat cells are exposed to extreme cold conditions, the body’s usual response is to restrict circulation to keep the core of the body at the correct temperature. Fat freezing or cryolipolysis makes use of a powerful vacuum which adds to the inflammatory response by drawing blood up to the surface layers of the skin killing the cells. Fat freezing procedure is not only good for one specific area but can be used for fat reduction on almost all parts of the body where there is fat accumulation.

Is fat freezing painful?

There is no discomfort during the fat freezing treatment apart from a small pinch one might feel which subsides within minutes once the area gets cooled. 

How long does a fat freezing session last?

A typical fat freezing session lasts for 30 mins (per area)

Am I suitable for fat freezing?

We offer a free one on one consultation with a medical professional, where you can discuss any concerns you may have regarding the fat freezing treatment.   

Are there any side effects to fat freezing?

Science of Fat Freezing/ Cryolipolysis

The exposure to cooling is set so that it causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without apparent damage to the overlying skin. The procedure is billed as a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction.

Stubborn fat can is hard to get rid of, despite diet and exercise. Our AW3® Cryolpolysis technology uses controlled freezing to target and break down the fat cells. In just a few weeks, these fat cells will naturally eliminate from the body for good.
