Ice Lipo (also known as "Fat Freezing" and "Cryo Lipo") is based on the science of Cryolipolysis. It’s a term that combines “cryo” (icy cold) with “lipolysis” (the chemical decomposition of fat).
It is engineered to cool the fat cells to near freezing so the are destroyed. The body may then eliminate the crystallized cells in the weeks to follow, reducing up to 40% of fat in the treated area*.
This procedure is ideal for selective targets of localized fat deposits; common areas include;
abdominal fat, love handles, back rolls, thighs and bulges above cesarean section incision lines.
The Cryo Heads vacuum up the stubborn fat-bearing areas of the skin.
The area is cooled to a controlled temperature which causes the fat cells beneath to crystallise.
The destroyed fat cells are then gradually disposed of via the body’s ordinary metabolism system.
This results in a reduction of stubborn fat in the targeted area(s). This reduction occurs over a period of 1-12 weeks after treatment.
The process doesn’t require incisions, needles, or any risks associated with surgical procedures. Unlike liposuction, there no recovery time required, therefore it's possible to return to usual daily schedule straight after treatment*.
Fat cells crystallise at higher temperatures than neighbouring cells. This is why the treatment specifically focuses on breaking down the fat cells without impacting the surrounding tissue e.g. skin, muscle, and nerve fibres.
This fantastic procedure regulates the exact rate of cooling throughout the treatment to attain frequently maximum results for every individual client.
Treatments take from 45 minutes up to 2 hours depending on individual needs, which are always subject to assessment. Call for more details...
*Percentage loss figure is based on external clinic studies. Individual fat losses and side effects can vary.
Is the Cryolipo treatment painful?With this kind of non-invasive method, there’s no need for anaesthesia or pain killers, with no recovery time. The process is comfortable for the majority of clients who can read, work on their laptop, listen to music or just relax throughout the procedure.
How do the results match up against other procedures such as liposuction?Cryolipolysis Research Results: “Cryolipolysis has demonstrated efficacy in both human and animal studies. Histology findings also confirm the selective reduction of fat in both humans and animals, with evidence of a gradual thinning of the fat layer over a period of two to four months. Importantly, cryolipolysis has not produced any significant adverse side effects in studies to date and any noted effects have been minor and temporary” Original Cryolipolysis Research Journal
Are there any side effects observed following Cryolipolysis?10 subjects given cryolipolysis had been studied by sensation testing from the local nerves. A short lived decrease in sensation happened in 6 out of 9 subjects, however all returned to normal after around 3-6 weeks after treatment, don’t be surprised should you get a little bit of temporary numbness.
How much does it cost?Prices are based on how many "Cryo Cups" are required to treat your desired area(s). For example, one cup may be enough to reduce the fat on a clients' lower abdomen, but at least 2 cups will be required for the love handles. Typically: One Cryo Cup will cover; Lower Abdomen | or Upper Abdomen. Two Cryo Cups will cover; Upper & Lower Abdomen | or Love Handles | or Male Chests | or bra rolls |or inner thighs Three Cryo Cups will cover: Lower Abdomen and Love handles | or Arms and Upper Abdomen | Four Cryo Cups will cover; Upper Abdomen, Lower Abdomen and Love Handles | or Inner and Outer Thighs Obviously the amount of cups required will depend on the size of the body area(s). This will be determine during the free consultation.
How long will a treatment take?Depends on how many Cryo Cups required to treat your chosen areas. Usually an appointment will take between 1 hour - 3 hours. This will be determine during the initial consultation.
