How does Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing work?2019-07-20T16:45:43+10:00

The Cryolipolysis procedure utilises highly controlled cooling technology that can safely and effectively reduce and eliminate fat cells from specific areas of the body. Cryolipolysis can deliver significant fat layer reduction in these targeted areas which help to contour the body and reclaim its natural shape. This procedure is non-invasive with no anesthesia or recovery time.

During the procedure tissue is drawn into a cup with mild vacuum pressure that may cause some discomfort or an unfamiliar sensation. Patients may also experience an uncomfortable cold sensation that typically subsides within 10-12 minutes after the procedure begins. After the procedure, the body will absorb the damaged fat cells and eliminate them through the normal metabolic process through the liver and and the lymphatic system, over a two to four month period. It is imperative that you must have a healthy lifestyle to ensure that you see results.

Once the procedure is complete, patients can immediately return to their normal activities, including work or exercise.

Clinical studies discovered that at cells are more sensitive to cold and cannot survived in cold temperatures unlike the surrounding body cells. Therefore, no other cell is damaged during the process of fat freezing.

Ultrasound Cavitation is used predominantly for fat reduction. Cavitation is based on low frequency ultrasound and sculpts the body without the need for surgery.   It is a risk free procedure avoiding scars, discomfort and downtime and is seen to be a safer alternative to liposuction.  The ultrasound produces a strong wave of pressure that target the fat cell membranes.  The membranes cannot stand the pressure thus disintegrating into a liquid state which is naturally eliminating, resulting in instant fat loss.

This treatment is perfect for those who suffer from cellulite as the ultra sound focuses on the superficial fat tissue.  Best results are achieved when the ultrasound is applied in conjunction with the radio frequency.

What happens to the fat?2019-07-20T16:04:39+10:00

Excess fat is released in to the interstitial space between the cells during and after the cavitation treatment.  It is then metabolised to glycerol and fatty free acids.  Glycerol that is water-soluble is absorbed by the circulatory system and used as an energy source.  The insoluble fatty free acids are transported via the liver and kidneys and processed as if fatty acids from foods and then eliminated naturally from the body.

This treatment consists Radio Frequency skin tightening technology targets the visible effects of ageing such as wrinkles, sagging, dehydration and surface roughness. This works in three phases: drainage, reduction and firming-up.

During treatment, the radio frequency waves penetrate the skin to tighten it from the inside out. The localised heating causes an immediate contraction of collagen fibres, and increases metabolism of the fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen fibres). This stimulates and accelerates the production of collagen and elastin which has a tightening effect on the skin. The results get better overtime due to the increased production of collagen fibres giving you a tighter and younger looking skin.
