The science behind it.
Cryolipolysis is a tried, tested and proven inch loss process using advanced technology, more commonly referred to as Fat Freezing, Cool Sculpting®, Ice Lipo or Cool Slimming. As a non-surgical alternative to Liposuction, this treatment has become one of the “go-to” procedures for eliminating unwanted body fat.
The treatment relies on the controlled cooling of fat tissue. The simple procedure has vacuum cups placed on the chosen areas of fat and the triglycerides (fat cells) are cooled to between -1 and -7 degrees. These unwanted fat cells are unable to survive at this temperature, they die and are then eliminated naturally through the bodies lymphatic drainage system. The surrounding areas of tissue remain unharmed and over a period of 12 weeks the body will reshape.
So let us explain the basic science and brief history of Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing. Until 2010 the removal of fat was usually achieved by liposuction or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) surgery. Whilst these methods both provide good results they are an invasive treatment posing many risks and cost an average of £4,000 - £5,000, Reports as far back as the 1900's document adipose tissue and its sensitivity to cold. In the 1970's it was reported fat necrosis (cell death) in an infant who had been sucking on an ice lolly. This was then observed in adult patients to prove lipid rich tissues are susceptible to cold without the harm of other organs, In 2007 Cryolipolysis was then introduced as a method for fat elimination and in 2012 is received FDA approval.
When we eat, our body converts any calories it doesn't need into these triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in our fat cells and if we regularly eat more calories than we burn, particularly empty calories like carbohydrates, sugars and fats, we can find ourselves with triglycerides, commonly known as fat bulges. Luckily approx 25% of these fat cells can now be eliminated in one treatment of Fat Freezing.

What are the most popular areas of treatment?
Everyone has a different problem area and you should always choose the areas that you are most concious about or are your most stubborn areas.
How long does it take?
Each treatment of up to 4 areas takes approx 60 minutes depending on the thickness of fat and your own body. We always say to give yourself and extra 15 minutes to be on the safe side to cover consultation and any questions you may have before or after the treatment.
Does it really work or is this another slimming myth?
Our most asked question! Yes it really does work. We can give you our word that this treatment really does work and has long lasting results. It is not a con or a slimming myth, this is a scientifically, tried, tested and proven treatment.
How much fat does it eliminate?
Everyone is different and all bodies respond differently but it can eliminate up to 45% of fat and the average is around 30%.
How many treatments will i need?
Just the one treatment is enough but we all have different bodies and diffferent goals. Depending on your body fat and your own goals, a second or third round of treatments will give even further results. You must leave a minimum of 4 weeks before treating the same area.
When will i see a change?
Depending on your body type and the amount of fat you have, you may see results in as little as 2 weeks. In general, you will begin to see results at around week 4 and see optimum results after 12 weeks.
What will i feel during my treatment?
After your initial consultation, your therapist will mark out your treatment areas and then place a gel membrane on the area to protect your skin. The targeted area will then be covered with a cryo cup, this will suction your skin into the cup and you will feel a pulling sensation. After an initial feeling of heat you will then start to feel the skin go cold. This will last for around 5-10 minutes and then it will become numb. There is little to no discomfort during the treatment.
What do i do during the treament?
Once you are settled into your treatment you can chose to do whatever you like as long as you stay on the treatment bed. You can relax and read, carry out some work on your phone or even chat to your therapist. However, we recommend that you take this opportunity to fully relax, listen to some music and take a well deserved nap.
What happens after the treatment?
Once you have finished your treatment you can carry on your day as normal. You may have some slight redness and numbness but this will subside within a day. In some cases and depending on the area treated, there may be something similar to a love bite or bruising but this will subside within 5 days.
Do i have to do anything special after the treatment?
Yes, for optimum results we recommend the following;
Do not eat carbohydrates for 24 hours
Do not consume alchohol for 24 hours
Limit your caffiene for 24 hours
Drink a minimum 2 litres of water everyday
Do no use a sunbed for 24 hours
Carry out some light activity such as going for a walk ( or a gym session)
Carry out dry body brushing in the area of treatment,
