Fat Freezing Durham.

Fat Freezing Durham could help to shape and sculpt your body whilst boosting your self-confidence.

Cryolipolysis also referred to as fat freezing, has become a popular treatment across the world with celebrities alike having the treatment. Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive, non-surgical, clinically proven method of targeting fat in problem areas using cooling technology. There is no pain, and no recovery time and treatments are suitable for women and men of all ages.

The fat freezing procedure involves controlled cooling within the temperature range of below – 9°C. This destroys the fat cells through a natural process called apoptosis (natural cell death), other cells are not as sensitive to fat freezing and are therefore unaffected. As the fat cells are destroyed they leave the body through the lymphatic system. As a result, there is an average reduction of the thickness of the fat layer in the region of 25%–40%.

Fat Freezing Treatment in Durham Area

Cryolipolysis is designed to rid stubborn areas of fat that are hard to get rid of through lifestyle, for example, the chin, stomach, back and arms. Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) sessions last approximately 1 – 2 hours, during which time you can enjoy catching up on your favourite Netflix series, reading a book or even going to sleep.

360 Cryolipolysis Applicator

While normal applicators cool from two sides, the 360 fat freeze applicators freeze the whole area, thus destroying more fat and targeting areas difficult to treat with standard applicators. The 360 applicators are guaranteed to destroy more fat cells in a single Cryolipolysis session than standard applicators. With advanced temperature control and a larger surface area, the 360 applicators can produce better results in fewer sessions. RT Aesthetics is currently the only clinic in the North to offer this advanced technology, giving you better results for the same price as our competitors. On average a client will lose 30% of the fat in the targeted area per treatment.

During your Cryolipolysis treatment, a cooling gel pad is placed on the target areas. The vacuum applicator draws in the stubborn fat as the aesthetic practitioner talks you through step by step what is happening. The temperature inside the applicator drops, and as it does so, the area becomes numb. Clients sometimes experience discomfort from the vacuum’s pull on their tissue, although this resolves within minutes, once the area becomes numb.

The effects of the Cryolipolysis procedure were discovered by scientists who found that cooling temperatures would cause fat cells to die. They identified that when children ate ice lollies they were developing dimples in their cheeks from fat loss. Clinical studies have shown reductions in pockets of fat following a fat-freezing treatment while proving to be a safe and effective treatment.

Clients can expect minimal discomfort during the Cryolipolysis treatment. However, depending on the sensitivity of the client’s skin, some individuals may experience temporary redness, bruising and/or numbness after the procedure. These side effects are temporary and usually last no more than 7 – 10 days.

Our Care.

Pre-Care.

Prior to your MED: 360 Cryolipolysis treatment it is recommended that you begin to make changes to your lifestyle by:

  • Increasing water intake (aim for 2 – 3 litres)
  • Reduce the intake of toxins to the body (tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, carbohydrates and fatty foods)
  • Increase the consumption of fruit and vegetables
  • Please avoid a heavy meal an hour before treatment
  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to treatment
  • Avoid having any laser hair removal or laser treatment 1 week before treatment (in the area you’re having treated)

After Care.

In order to achieve optimum results from your MED: 360 Cryolipolysis treatment, we strongly recommend the following:

  • Drink 2 – 3 litres of water daily, keep a large bottle with you at all times and infuse with lemons and limes for flavour, this will flush out the crystallised lipids (dead fat cells) out of your body through the lymphatic system
  • Exercise a minimum of 1 hour per week as this will assist in the metabolism of the dead fat cells and contribute to a healthy lifestyle
  • Follow a healthy eating diet plan (we offer these on our website, head over and click ‘resources’) and reduce your intake of alcohol, carbohydrates and caffeine during the treatment program
  • Regular body brushing at home, is a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells, do this twice daily for 2 minutes
  • Use the RT Organics Body Sculpt Oil daily when body brushing to help assist in the removal of dead fat cells and promote good blood flow
  • Take 2 scoops off RT Aesthetics 20:80 inulin powder daily, mix with any liquid or food
  • Avoid hot baths or showers, steam or heat treatments for 24 hours
  • Avoid Aspirin and Ibuprofen during the treatment program

Treatment Day.

With a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, you can be reassured that you will receive a down-to-earth, open and honest service where you will not be judged or pushed into anything you don’t want to do or pressured into unnecessary purchases.

  • You will first meet with your Aesthetic Practitioner, who will go through the treatment in detail and ensure you understand everything
  • They will ensure all paperwork is completed; this includes a medical history screening, treatment areas assessment and lifestyle questions
  • Your aesthetic practitioner will then start by measuring your target areas, taking photos and going through the treatment process
  • Once the areas have been marked up, a wet-gel membrane is placed onto the site, and the applicator is put onto the targeted area
  • The applicator will begin suction to pull the fat inside the applicator, and the 360 cooling will begin; the treatment takes around 1 – 2 hours to complete depending on the number of areas being treated
  • At the end of your treatment, a short message will be given, and we will provide advice on what to do at home
  • You can choose to opt for the post fat freezing
  • Shockwave Therapy at the end of the treatment; this helps to increase the results of the Cryolipolysis: up to 29% more fat reduction in clinical studies
  • You will be given aftercare advice on the day of your treatment, and this will also be sent to you via email for you to refer back too
  • Twelve weeks is the estimated time to see the maximum results; however, clients have reported good results after only 4 – 6 weeks. Clients are still advised to live a healthy lifestyle as this will help maintain results.

FAQs.

Read our frequently asked questions regarding MED: 360 Cryolipolysis
Does Fat Freezing work?
It sure does, but don’t take our word for it; check out our testimonials. Please note that clients have different personal circumstances, and considering clients react differently to Cryolipolysis treatment, results vary from person to person. RT Aesthetics cannot guarantee specific results; however, on average, each Cryolipolysis treatment session can result in a 30% fat reduction (see resources page). RT Aesthetics stands by evidence-based treatments. Therefore we encourage all our clients to look into Cryolipolysis case studies before treatment. Significant research proves the effectiveness of Cryolipolysis treatment, which can be seen by clicking on our resources page.
Fatigue cells become inflamed through fat freezing, and your body sends out specialised cells that gradually digest the affected fat cells. Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system to be processed and eliminated, reducing fat. Fat cells are flushed out of the body as urine; drinking lots of water after your treatment is essential.
Yes! Cryolipolysis is a different treatment from the BTL Exilis Ultra 360. The Exilis treatment stimulates collagen production, tightens skin, and helps liquidate fat cells deep under the skin layer. This treatment has proven results, which can be found in all our body transformation packages.
No, the great thing about Cryolipolysis treatment is that you can go about your day as normal straight after treatment. However, RT Aesthetics advises that you increase your water intake by 2 – 3 litres, practice regular body brushing and follow all aftercare advice. This will help flush out the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system and improve your health and well-being.
You must wait for a minimum of 6 months after your baby’s expected birth or a minimum of 12 months after a C-section. It is best to get GP approval post-childbirth before commencing treatment. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this, please get in touch with us, and we will be more than happy to assist.
You may see results after four weeks. However, the full results will be seen after 6 – 12 weeks. Therefore, we request that you return six weeks after your appointment for a follow-up appointment and then again at week 12 for a final measure and photo if appropriate. All follow-up appointments are free of charge and form part of your aftercare.
Fat cells are destroyed permanently. After Cryolipolysis treatment, the fat cells are destroyed by a natural process called apoptosis; the body removes the fat cells through the lymphatic system as a waste product. As the fat cells are removed from the body, as with Liposuction, fat will not deposit again in the same area treated.
After your face-to-face consultation, measurements and before treatment photos have been taken, you will have a cooling membrane (which looks like a big wet wipe) placed onto the treated area. Next, the 360 fat freezing applicators are placed onto the treatment area, suction is applied, and the stubborn fat is sucked into the applicator. Next, the applicator begins to cool to the desired temperature of below -9 degrees. Cushions are then placed around the applicator to keep it in place before the suction pressure is reduced for the remainder of the treatment. You can then enjoy the rest of the 45 – 60 minute treatment, for example, reading a book or magazine, listening to music, catching up on your favourite Netflix series, and enjoying a rare opportunity for some peace and quiet. The device will be removed at the end of the treatment, and a massage of the area will complete the treatment.

Unfortunately, Cryolipolysis is not designed to tighten loose or stretched skin. However, we can still help! Depending on where the loose skin is located and how much is required treating we have two non-invasive treatments available. The first is Radio Frequency (BTL Exilis Ultra 360), and the second is High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MED: HIFU Ultra). Both treatments cause tightening of the skin and lead to the reduction of excess skin. If you want more information, please click here or contact us for more details. If you are still unsure, see us, and we will determine whether or not our procedure is suitable.
