Fat Freezing

For stubborn areas of fat, that you can’t get rid of even with exercise and diet.

Fat freezing, sometimes known as cool body sculpting, ice lipo or cryolipolysis will remove unwanted fat effortlessly without surgery or downtime, you can look good from every angle.

Cryolipolysis “fat freezing” was developed by a Harvard scientist and has been clinically proven procedure to freeze fat cells without damage to other cells. It is a non-surgical procedure designed to target and permanently remove stubborn fat cells.

The areas that can be treated are tummy, love handles, saddle bags, bingo wings, bra straps, inner and outer thigh, inner knee, above knee and chin.


How does fat freezing work?

Fat freezing is based on the science of cryolipolysis. Cryo means cold and lipolysis is the process of chemical decomposition of fat. Under carefully controlled conditions, subcutaneous fat cells are more vulnerable than other surrounding tissue to the effects of cold. This procedure selectively targets localized fat deposits; common areas include abdominal fat, love handles, back rolls, muffin-tops and bulges above cesarean section incision lines.

The cryo cups cool the area by extracting the heat, this causes fat cell apoptosis - a natural, controlled cell death - which leads to the release of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators that gradually eliminate the affected cells. No harm is done to the surrounding tissues. Lipids in fat cells crystallize at higher temperatures than other cells that contain water. This is how the technology specifically focuses on only breaking down the fat cells whilst sparing all the other tissue like the skin, muscle mass, and nerve fibres.

Then inflammatory cells gradually digest the affected fat cells in the months after the treatment, reducing the thickness of the fat layer. Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed and eliminated, much like that of fat from food.


In contrast to using liposuction, the process doesn’t depend on surgery or needles, and clients require no downtime.

What is fat freezing effective for?

Any stubborn areas of fat.
If you have a larger amount of fat to lose another type of treatment might be needed first, such as cavitation, which will ensure that you lose a larger amount of fat.

Is there any downtime?

There is little to no downtime and no need to book days off work. Sometimes there is bruising and swelling of the area but this subsides quickly. If there is pain afterwards it is usually relieved by taking Paracetamol but very rarely prescription medication may be required.

How many treatments will I need?

Usually one treatment is all you need. Although some people may have two.

When will I see my results?

Results start around 2 weeks and continue for 3 months. Before your treatment commences, photos and measurements will be taken and a review after 3 months to compare results which are shared with you.

What about aftercare?

The fat freezing is permanent, but this is the perfect opportunity to change your lifestyle and eating habits so the weight does not creep back on. We work with Urban Retreat which are clinically proven supplements which can assist with your weight loss journey.
