Cristal Fat Freezing

What is fat freezing? (or cryolipolysis)

Fat freezing, or cryolipolysis, is a method which uses controlled freezing to cool fat cells until they crystallise, and the fat cells themselves actually die. The crystallised fat is naturally disposed of by your body in the weeks that follow the session, leaving you with your natural shape and curves; something that is unable to be achieved from exercise and dieting. You might not think so, but this innovative technique is non-invasive and requires absolutely no anaesthesia or downtime. You can continue with your normal activities immediately after the session.

What areas of the body can fat freezing be used on?

Fat freezing can be used to treat stubborn fat on some the following areas:

• Chin (under the neck and double chin)
• Arms
• Back / Bra area
• Male chest (pseudogynecomastia)
• Abdomen
• Love handles
• Thighs
• Under buttocks (saddlebags)
• Knees
• Calves

If there are other areas of your body with stubborn fat you would like to treat which aren’t listed above, the best thing to do is to arrange a consultation at one of our clinics. That way, we can assess your current situation and advise you on whether CRISTAL® Cool Sculpting is the right treatment for you. If not, we can advise an alternative treatment to better suit your needs.

Is CRISTAL® suitable for you?

Fat Freezing is considered a safe and effective way to reduce the number of fat cells is in a given area of the body. If you’re looking to embrace your natural shape and reduce fat rolls that you’re feeling insecure about, this could be the perfect treatment for you.

However, it’s important to note that Fat Freezing, CRISTAL® and CoolSculpting are not considered forms of weight loss, and therefore are not recommended as a treatment of obesity. This type of treatment is designed to treat stubborn fat cells that usually only shrink through diet and exercise.
