We are now offering an exciting new treatment, so I want to take this opportunity to tell you all about it and answer some frequently asked questions.
Fat freeze or cryolipolysis, is a ground-breaking treatment of non-invasive ‘fat freezing’. By using controlled cooling the machines ‘kills off’ cells of subcutaneous fat that aren’t removed by diet or exercise, without damage to the skin. The body then breaks down the dead fat cells and disposes of them naturally.
Amazing results after just one session will develop over 2-3 months, a great way to get rid of that stubborn ‘muffin top’, treatment can be used on areas such as stomach, inner thighs, love handles and is a great for removing stubborn fat bulges and contouring.
How does it work?
Cooling heads are placed onto the area being treated and the machine uses suction to draw the skin and underlying fat into the cooling head. The machine then uses controlled cooling to lower the temperature of the fat cells, which in turn kills off the fat cells. The cells are then naturally processed through the body and disposed of when you pass water.

Does it hurt?
Although no cold is felt through the machine, a cold gel membrane is applied prior to treatment. During the treatment you may experience some pulling sensation or mild pinching in the first 5-10 minutes. Most people report no pain. Following the procedure there may be some redness, tenderness or bruising but side effects usually subside within 14 days.
How many treatments are needed: Most people will just need 1 treatment per area (stomach, thighs etc.)
How long before I see results: You may start to notice a difference in just a couple of weeks however you won’t see the full results for 2-3 months.
How long between treatments: We recommend 45 days inbetween treatments in the same area
Is there any downtime?
There is normally no downtime or recovery time needed. Most people return to normal activities right away.
After the procedure…
Do not do vigorous exercise for 24 hours
For 72 hours after procedure drink a minimum of 2 litres of water per day and refrain from drinking alcohol, fizzy drinks or caffeine.
