Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing)
HOW IT WORKS
Fat freezing is only suitable for those with pockets of fat rather than a large area of fat and is therefore recommended as a one-off treatment. A single treatment can kill 20-40% of fat cells in the area.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
One treatment lasts between 45 and 60 minutes depending on the size of the head used and how many areas are being treated.
If more than one treatment is required, this can be carried out between 6 weeks and 3 months later depending on whether or not shockwave therapy is incorporated into the treatment.
What Is Shockwave Therapy?
Shockwave therapy is a probe that is placed against the treatment area and emits radial waves through the skin as it passes over, stimulating the fat breakdown and encouraging lymphatic drainage.
When Will I See Results?
As the body takes several months to flush out the dead fat cells, results will be visible after approximately 8-12 weeks. A course of shockwave therapy can help to speed up this process along with a healthy diet, regular exercise and drinking plenty of water.
These results can be permanent along as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
Are There Any Side Effects?
During the treatment, you will experience a slight pulling sensation and will feel the area going cold but within a few minutes, the area will become numb.
There are a couple of minor side effects that may occur as a result of a 3D-fat freeze treatment, but will quickly subside, including:
– slight redness and swelling can occur immediately after the treatment
– slight discomfort within the treatment area 2-3 days post-treatment
– minor bruising may happen up to 10 days post-treatment
– cold and firmness of the area for up to 2 weeks post-treatment
How Much Does It Cost?
The fat freeze treatment costs £200 for a 45 min treatment session on one area. To have two areas treated during the same session, the cost is £300.
If combined with a shockwave therapy, an additional £30 is added to the cost.
