Fat Freezing

Fat Freezing (Cryolipolysis)

Cryolipolysis is one of the Body Contouring treatments available at our Clinics. This treatment is ideal for targeting pockets of fat, which we typically develop on our tummy (spare tyre) and our hips (love handles). This treatment can  also target your bingo wings, inner thighs and muffin tops!

We can also treat the pocket of fat under your chin effectively using a smaller head.  Read all about it here….http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-3425669/How-froze-double-chin-extraordinary-new-deep-freeze-treatment-claims-shed-pounds-face-nervous-JENNI-MURRAY-dared-try-it.html

This is currently on offer with SDS for £250 including x6 treatments of radio frequency skin tightening, call 0151 625 8080 to book your appointment today!!!

Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells, which are then gradually removed by the body, naturally over a period of 2 – 3 months leaving a more toned and contoured body. This process removes these fat cells PERMANENTLY and can be equated to Liposuction – but obviously without the pain, the down time and the high price tag.

Frequently Asked Questions

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 is a contraindication. Our doctors will discuss your medical history prior to treatment.
