3D Lipo Fat Freezing Cryolipolysis
Cryolipolysis is ideal for targeting pockets of fat, which we typically develop on our tummy, hips, back, inner thighs, under arms and even under the chin area.
Cryolipolysis involves the controlled and safe freezing of fat cells. Freezing the fat cells causes them to die without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. Once the cells have been destroyed, the body’s lymphatic system naturally disposes them over the coming weeks and months, thus reducing fat and leaving a more toned appearance. Only ONE single treatment is needed for each targeted area and with just that one treatment you can expect visible results within 2-6 months.

- Eat a well balanced diet on day of treatment
- Avoid a heavy meal 2 hours prior to treatment
- Avoid caffeine 2 hours prior to treatment
How does this work?
Cryolipolysis selectively targets the water content of the fat cell. A temperature of -6 degrees is applied to the area of concern and maintained for a pre determined time period to damage the fat cells. The damaged fat cells undergo a natural removal process that continues for up to 3 months
Is it permanent?
Yes! The fat cells that are destroyed by the freezing process are absorbed and excreted naturally by the body. Once destroyed, the same fat cells cannot grow back as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
How many sessions are required?
This is a one off treatment. A course of treatment is not required.
Are there any side effects?
Cryolipolysis is non invasive and hence there is no downtime. You will experience redness which is transient. The area treated may feel numb for 2 – 3 hours but very occasionally this can persist for a few weeks. You may develop slight bruising, but this will resolve over the ensuing days.
Is everyone suitable for this treatment?
In order to benefit from this treatment you must have a ‘pocket of fat’. There is no age restraint and both men and women can have this treatment. Pregnancy, breast-feeding and Raynauds is a contraindication. A consultation is required prior to all treatments to discuss any medical history.
