Fat Freeze – Cooltech®
What is it?
The Fat Freeze (Cooltech®) procedure uses the latest proven science of cryolipolysis technology i.e. fat freezing. It works on the principle that fat cells are most vulnerable to temperature changes. The controlled cooling treatment will gradually and naturally eliminate stubborn fat from the treatment areas.
How does it work?
Fat freezing is designed to treat stubborn fat. Hand pieces are designed for specific areas of the body and this enables the treatment areas to be sculptured and re-contoured.
Fat freeze is the latest non-surgical, non-invasive treatment with no down time required.
What areas can be treated?
Abdomen – lower, mid and upper tummy (muffin top)
Hips and love handles
Buttocks (sausage rolls)
Back and flank fat (bra back fat)
Underarms (tuckshop arms or bingo wings)
Inner & outer thighs (thunder thighs)
What does treatment involve?
A health questionnaire is completed along with a consent form for signing
The depth of skin and fat is measured
A gel pad is applied to the treatment area
A hand piece is applied onto the treatment area.
The hand piece will slowly increase the suction and at the same time, the temperature will be lowered.
The skin will be numb from the cooling sensation and treatment will take approximately one hour.
During this time you can relax, read a book or listen to music.
The hand piece is removed and the treatment area will be cold from the suction however this will resolve.
The treatment area may remain red however this is normal and will resolve over time. Occasionally bruising of the treatment may occur.
The treatment area will be massaged to get the best result. Your fat cells will be removed in the normal way your body removes other waste.
