Fat freezing

Did you know that fat cells cannot survive at extremely low temperatures, even though other cell types can?

Cryolipolysis, often referred to as fat freezing, is a revolutionary, clinically-proven body contouring treatment that permanently destroys fat cells, resulting in a smoother, slimmer look. Cryolipolysis fat freezing is non-surgical and incredibly effective, even on the most stubborn, exercise-resistant pockets of fat.

When it comes to fat freezing, Sydney locals trust us, the experienced and expert team at Laser Sydney. Find out more about this non-invasive fat freezing procedure below.

How does fat freezing work?

As we mentioned above, cryolipolysis fat freezing is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that delivers exceptional results. It uses fat’s susceptibility to extremely cold temperatures to kill cells and remove excess fat permanently.

Here’s how it works.

  1. A state-of-the-art vacuum is applied to the targeted area. Inside the vacuum, the temperature is lowered to about -9 degrees Celsius.
  2. The cold temperature attacks the fat layer without damaging surrounding cells, causing the targeted cells to die and crystallise.
  3. Over a period of 12 weeks, the dead fat cells are eliminated from the body naturally.

You can expect to see a 20 to 30 per cent reduction in fat in the treated area.

Fat freezing in Sydney: treatable areas

Fat freezing is best suited to areas of the body that hold stubborn pockets of fat that, despite a healthy diet and regular exercise, cannot be reduced. Cryolipolysis may not be as effective for those that have a significant (more than 15kgs) amount of fat to lose.

The team at Laser Sydney will determine whether or not fat freezing is right for you. We offer a free consultation, and we’re happy for you to come in and see us for more information.

Areas that can be treated include the following:

  • Inner thighs
  • Lower abdomen (the ‘muffin top’ area)
  • Love handles
  • Arms
  • Double chins
  • Back bra strap areas

Cryolipolysis fat freezing FAQs

Can I return to normal activities after the fat freezing treatment?2019-08-22T00:23:59+00:00

Yes. Unlike traditional liposuction, fat freezing is non-invasive. There is no recovery time, disruption, or extreme discomfort.

How long does a fat freezing treatment take?2019-08-22T00:23:47+00:00

Each treatment takes about one hour. We are professionals, and take our time to ensure the treatment is safe and effective. We can treat two areas simultaneously, saving you time.

Do fat freezing treatments hurt?2019-08-22T00:23:36+00:00

During the beginning of the cooling process, you will feel pressure and extreme cold. However, the area soon becomes numb, meaning there is no sensation at all. Many of our clients read, check their email, or watch videos on their phone during their treatment.

Is fat freezing safe?2019-08-22T00:22:58+00:00

Yes. When it comes to fat freezing, Sydney locals trust us to deliver non-invasive treatments that do not penetrate the skin. There is no risk of complications or infections.

Where does the fat go after the treatment?2019-08-22T00:22:28+00:00

Crystallised fat cells are broken down naturally by your body. They then pass through the lymphatic system and then the liver, before they are eliminated as waste.

Will I see results from fat freezing straight away?2019-08-22T00:21:48+00:00

No. You will see results from an effective fat freezing treatment in as little as six weeks. Optimal results will be seen at the 12-week mark.

Are fat freezing results permanent?2019-08-22T00:21:01+00:00

Yes. Once your fat cells are killed, crystallised, and eliminated from your body, they are gone for good. If you maintain your current weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can enjoy the results for years and years to come.

Does fat freezing actually work?2019-08-22T00:20:25+00:00

Yes. Fat freezing has been clinically proven to permanently remove between 20 and 30 per-cent of fat cells after one treatment. However, we do recommend 3-4 treatments to see long-lasting results.
