Fat Freezing

Get slimmer and feel healthier!

Fat Freezing, also known as Cryogenic Lipolysis is a non-surgical, non-invasive alternative to Liposuction, a futuristic body sculpting treatment. Fat Freezing is often seen in the press for its success in treating areas of stubborn fat. Similar treatments have gained positive reviews in Cosmopolitan, Elle, Grazia, The Daily Mail and The Metro to name a few. This is a treatment that celebrities can no longer keep a secret.


Cryogenic Lipolysis or Fat Freezing

Cryogenic lipolysis is very different from other non-surgical lipo treatments, The technology behind it was designed and developed by dermatologists at Harvard Medical School. Their findings revealed that fat cells deteriorate at different temperatures to other cells and that whilst destroying the fat cells, other tissues are left unaffected e.g. skin, muscle mass, and nerve fibres. Clinical studies have shown Cryogenic Liposuction treatments to be effective on between 20% – 40% of the fat cells in the treatment area in just one session and that with Fat Freezing the fat cells are permanently destroyed!! Making Cryo Fat Freezing the most effective non-invasive technology out there. 

  • Fat Freezing cools the fat cells in the treatment area to between 0°C and -7°C, Cryogenic Fat Freezing affects only the fat cells as they are more sensitive to cold than other cells. When cooled the fat cells crystallise and are destroyed. During the weeks following your treatment, these destroyed cells are processed through your lymphatic system. In clinical trials 12 weeks post-treatment, 9 out of 10 people saw an undeniable reduction in the treated area, although results can be seen in as little as 2-3 weeks. 

    At Breath of Life Clinic, we specialize in Cryogenic Fat Freezing and use the latest Cryotechnology, we can also treat more than one area simultaneously. During the procedure, most patients remain completely comfortable and can read, listen to music or simply relax and take advantage of our free WiFi. If you have not had Cryogenic Lipolysis before, you can expect to see temporary mild redness, tingling, tenderness, and possible soreness. The majority settles within 30mins. Most patients are able to return to work and resume other regular activities on the very same day.

  • Inch loss, weight loss and cellulite reduction can be achieved through cryo fat freezing.

  • Upper and Lower Abdomen, Hips, Love Handles/Flanks, Inner and Outer Thighs, Upper Arms/Bingo Wings, Bra and Backs Rolls, Buttocks and Baby Bulge. Cryogenic lipolysis can be used to reduce “man boobs” but cannot be used to treat female breast tissue or Gynecomastia. The applicator cannot be used on the chin, ankles or wrists as these areas are usually too small to treat. 

  • Before any treatments please refrain from eating a large meal and avoid caffeine and alcohol at least 3 hours before. 

    Shower before treatments and make sure no cream or perfumed products have been applied to the skin for at least 24 hours before.

  • YES – It is permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Once the fat cells are killed they are gone permanently. The only reason they would re-appear is if you gained a large amount of weight and your body had to make some new fat cells in order to store the new fat. But if you maintain a good exercise regimen and diet then the fat reduction is permanent in a sense that your fat cells are permanently removed from your body. 

  • Our technology is among the newest on the market, reducing the treatment times required. Each session is up to 45 minutes per area. Your treatment will be tailored to your individual requirements which will be discussed in your pre-treatment consultation. Additional time will be required if you require more than two areas. 

  • The Fat Cells crystallise and are destroyed, they are then dissolved into the body via the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system flushes out the affected fat cells and naturally disposes of them. The area treated becomes smaller in size over the following weeks as this process happens.
