- What is it?
Fat Freezing is a body contouring procedure that acts as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. CoolTech® reduces fat tissue with Cryo-technology using a controlled cooling system.
After a cool gel pad covers the treated area, the CoolTech® hand-piece is then applied and begins to create a vacuum effect that reduces blood flow.
The fat tissue is then momentarily cooled and as body temperatures drop from around 3°C to -8°C, fat cells begin to freeze and crystalize, causing cell death. This process lasts around 70 minutes and as this is a non-invasive treatment, you are free to enjoy a book or work from your laptop.
After the applicator is removed when the treatment session is complete, the area will appear red and lumpy. Your Aesthetic Practitioner massages the treated area to further break down the unwanted fat. The fat cells are then gradually eliminated through the normal metabolism process (via the lymphatic system).
It is non-invasive as there are no incisions required, and therefore no recovery time is needed. Stubborn pockets of fat can be removed without additional diet or exercise.
- Who’s, having it?
This treatment is suitable for all skin types and can be used to treat both men and women. CoolTech fat freezing is used to treat all areas of the body where stubborn areas of localised fat are found that is resistant to removal through diet and exercise. It is not a weight loss treatment.
It can be used on the abdomen, love handles, hips, inner and outer thighs, inner and outer knee area, arms, buttocks, back rolls and post pregnancy tummies where small accumulations of fatty tissue have remained.
- When should I have this?
We recommend a minimum of 1-3 sessions in the same area every 6-8 weeks. To enhance results, we offer Fat Freezing in combination with Accent®.
- How long will results last?
With only 1 treatment the results will be visible after 15 days and optimum results will be seen after the first 12 weeks. This procedure ensures permanent fat reduction technology, but only if weight is maintained and controlled.
