360 Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis 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, 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%.

I’ve had the 360 fat freeze on my stomach and sides and what a huge difference it’s made in just 1 treatment! I’m going to have another treatment on the love handles again as they seam more stubborn but overall very impressed with the stomach. Very friendly and professional service

OUR CARE

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

  • Increasing water intake
  • Reduce the intake of toxins to the body (tobacco, alcohol)
  • Avoid alcohol 24 hours prior to treatment
  • Avoid having any laser hair removal, laser treatment 2 weeks before treatment
  • Avoid other non-surgical body contouring treatments 1 week before treatment
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure (sunburn) on the same area you wish to have treatment 2 weeks before treatment
  • If the skin is red, irritated or broken, we cannot carry out your treatment until the skin has completely healed
  • Please avoid caffeine and fatty foods on the day of treatment
  • Please wear loose fitting clothing, no tight jeans etc
  • Reduce intake of carbohydrates Increase the consumption of fruit and vegetables
  • Please avoid a heavy meal an hour before treatment

We would recommend that you bring a change of clothes as during the treatment we use antifreeze membranes, these are very wet and sticky. Do not worry these do not damage or stain your clothes, however, if you are going out in public after your treatment, you may prefer to have a change of clothes.

In order to achieve optimum results from your 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 minimum of 1 hour per week as this will assist in the metabolism of the dead fat cells and contribute to healthy lifestyle
  • Follow a KETO diet plan and reduce your intake of alcohol, carbohydrates and caffeine during the treatment program
  • Regular body brushing at home, this is a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells, do this twice daily for 2 minutes
  • Take 2 scoops off 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
  • Lymphatic massage will accelerate the process of removing the fat cells

12 weeks is the estimated time to see the maximum result we have had clients report good results after 6 – 8 weeks. Although the number of fat cells are reduced during Cryolipolysis treatment, clients are still advised to live a healthy lifestyle as this will help maintain their results. It is also extremely important for us to be able to monitor your measurements after your Cryolipolysis treatment. RT Aesthetics request 2 follow up appointments at weeks 6 and 12. Should you have any concerns or queries either before or after your treatment then please contact us.

  • Once the areas have been marked up a wet-gel membrane is placed onto the area 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 amount of areas been 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 clinic 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

An ‘area’ is defined as one targeted area of fat which has one handle attached (RT Aesthetics machines can use two or four handles at once). So one area is, for example, the lower abdomen (if it’s small) or the left love handle. Two areas, for example, would consist of the lower abdomen left and right, both sides of the love handles or both upper arms or inner thighs.

  • 1 Area – Lower Centre Stomach
  • 1 Area – Upper Centre Stomach
  • 2 Areas – Lower & Upper Centre Stomach
  • 2 Areas – Love Handles | Sides of Stomach | Hips
  • 2 Areas – Male Chest (1 applicator on each area)
  • 4 Areas – Inner & Outer Thighs (1 applicator on each area)
  • 4 Areas – 2 Upper & 2 Lower Stomach (Belly Blaster)

360 Fat Freezing Treatment

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 applicator is guaranteed to destroy more fat cells in a single Cryolipolysis session than standard applicators. With advanced temperature control and larger surface area, the 360 applicator can produce better results in fewer sessions. RT Aesthetics are currently the only clinic in Newcastle & North East to offer this advance 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. Results vary depending on many different factors, for example, the density of the fat, and the size of the area been treated. Results take 6 – 12 weeks with some clients seeing results within 4 weeks post-treatment.

During your Cryolipolysis treatment a cooling gel pad is placed onto 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 Cryolipolysis procedure were discovered by scientists and 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.

more information

Cryolipolysis is designed to rid stubborn areas of fat that is 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, read a book or even go to sleep. At the end of Cryolipolysis treatment the vacuum turns off, the applicator is removed and the area is massaged, which help improve the final results. The massage promotes blood flow into the area that has been treated, during which the aesthetic practitioner will explain how you will continue to body brush at home.

Clients can expect minimal discomfort during the Cryolipolysis treatment. However, depending on the sensitivity of the clients 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.

Cryolipolysis Treatment Sessions:
The number of treatment sessions depends upon your own goals and the amount of stubborn fat in the area been treated. Many clients benefit from one session, however, the standard advice is that 1 – 3 treatments will be needed on most body areas. For treatments to a different area there is no waiting period, although clients usually wait at least 4 – 6 weeks before rebooking to treat the same area, though it can be retreated more frequently if so desired.

FAQS

  • 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 taking into account that clients react in 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% reduction of fat (see resources page). RT Aesthetics stands by evidence based treatments, therefore we encourage all of our clients to look into Cryolipolysis case studies prior to their treatment. There is significant research that proves the effectiveness of Cryolipolysis treatment and this can be seen by clicking onto our resources page.

  • Can I Combine Cryolipolysis With The MED: HIFU Ultra Facelift?

    Yes! Cryolipolysis is a different treatment to the MED: HIFU Ultra Facelift. The high intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) stimulates cell renewal and collagen production, tones the muscles of the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improves and lifts sagging skin. This treatment has proven results and many clients state how great it makes them feel and how good their skin feels after the treatment. Contact us for more information.

  • Do I Need To Rest After Cryolipolysis Treatment?

    No, the great thing about Cryolipolysis treatment is that you can go about your day as normal straight after treatment. RT Aesthetics do advise that you increase your water intake by 2 – 3 litres, practice regular body brushing and follow all aftercare advice given to you. This will help flush out the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system and improve your health and well-being.

  • How Long Should I Wait After Childbirth To Have Cryolipolysis?

    You must wait a minimum of 3 months after normal birth of your baby or a minimum of 12 months after a C section. It is best to get GP approval post childbirth prior to commencing with treatment. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this please contact us and we will be more than happy to assist.

  • How Soon Can I See Results From Cryolipolysis?

    You may see results after 4 weeks, however the full results will be seen after 6 – 12 weeks. We do request that you come back 6 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 appointment are completely free of charge and form part of your aftercare.

  • How Long Will My Results Last From Fat Freezing?

    Yes, the fat cells are destroyed permanently. After Cryolipolysis treatment the fat cells are destroyed by a natural process called apoptosis, the fat cells are removed by the body through the lymphatic system as a waste product. As the fat cells are removed body as with Liposuction, fat will not deposit again in the same area that was treated.

  • How Much Will My Treatment Cost?

    The cost of the treatment varies depending on the requirements of the client, for example, the amount of areas treated. RT Aesthetics recommend that all our clients book a face-to-face consultation, this allows the aesthetic practitioner to discuss the areas that you would like treated and design a treatment plan based around your own individual needs. RT Aesthetics promises to provide Cryolipolysis treatments at a more affordable price than all our competitors, while using state of the art technology (360 fat freezing), that is crucial to the success of the Cryolipolysis process. After all, happy clients is our number one goal not taking money for the sake of it!

  • What Happens During Cryolipolysis Treatment?

    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 area been treated. The 360 fat freezing applicator is placed onto the treatment area, suction is applied and the stubborn fat is sucked into the applicator. 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 how you choose, for example, reading a book or magazine, listening to music, catching up on your favourite Netflix series, enjoying a rare opportunity for some peace and quiet. At the end of the treatment the device will be removed and a massage on the area will complete the treatment.

  • Where Does The Fat Go?

    Through the process of fat freezing, the fat cells become inflamed 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, resulting in a reduction of fat. Fat cells are flushed out of the body as urine and it is therefore important to dink lots of water after your treatment.

  • Will Fat Freezing Work On Loose Skin?

    Unfortunately Cryolipolysis is not designed to tighten loose or stretched skin, however we can still help! Depending where the loose skin is located and how much is required treating we have 2 non-invasive treatments available. The first been Radio Frequency, and the second been High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MED: HIFU Ultra). Both treatments cause tightening of the skin and lead to the reduction of excess skin. If you would like more information regarding this please click here or alternatively contact us for more information. If you are still unsure come in and see us, and we will determine whether or not our procedure is suitable.

  • Will I Need Multiply Treatments?

    Most clients will find that only one Cryolipolysis treatment is required, however, some areas of the body do respond better than others and more stubborn areas of fat may require more than one treatment. The treatment sessions are between 1 – 3. Depending on your personal goals and budget, RT Aesthetics may recommend combining Cryolipolysis treatment with 5D Cavitation and Radio Frequency. However, our aesthetic practitioners are dedicated to helping you achieve the very best results, so during the consultation we can assess and understand your need and design a treatment plan bespoke to you. RT Aesthetics cannot guarantee specific results, however, on average each Cryolipolysis treatment session can result in a 30% reduction of fat (see resources page).

CLIENT STORY

From 360 fat freezing to the MED: HIFU Ultra facelift treatment, I really have had many treatments at RT Aesthetics. Each treatment has helped my self-confidence and made me feel great. I first started of with the face-to-face consultation appointment to have my areas looked at to make sure I was suitable for the treatment....

Danielle Jobson

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Anthony McGill

I had the 360 fat freezing treatment in September and since had 1 more treatment on my love handles. The treatment has worked well and I’ve been more then happy with my results (better than I imagined). The clinic is extremely caring and attentive and I’ve really enjoyed my experience

Carleigh Knox

I’ve had 2 treatments and both have been amazing. I had the 360 Fat Freezing treatment on my legs followed by the shockwave treatment. The fat freeze helped get rid of all the stubborn fat and the shockwave was great at breaking down my cellulite. Very knowledgeable, honest and caring clinic.

Elizabeth Major

On the day I received treatment Ryan was so attentive and made sure I was comfortable from the outset. I had the cryolypolosis (fat freezing) treatment on my stomach and love handles and have seen such amazing results after only two weeks, even though as standard it is supposed to take up to six weeks for results to show.

Harriet Brown

After learning lots about fat freezing during the consultation and reading lots online I booked in for treatment. I have seen such a big difference around my love handles and stomach area. The aftercare was great, you get a diet plan, email, follow up appointments and if I needed anything they were there for me.

Jill Evans

Amazing clinic and great staff. I really cannot fault the care and support I had throughout my MED: HIFU Ultra treatment. They are honest from the beginning and don’t force you into anything. The pricing is very good and in my opinion they don’t charge enough for the treatments. I have since signed up as a member to benefit from monthly treatments.

Rachel Moriarty

I could not be happier with RT Aesthetics. Ryan made me feel at ease from the minute we met. I suffer really badly with anxiety and body dysmorphia so this was a very big deal for me. The attention he pays to detail and his knowledge of procedures is out of this world, he’s a very intelligent and talented individual. There is literally nothing to worry about!

Maria Sutton

A huge thanks to Ryan for today at RT Aesthetics for my fat freezing procedure. I was a bit nervous but more because I needed to get down to my underwear in front of you. You made me feel really comfortable and at ease. Everything was fully explained to me and I’am excited for the results.

Robyn Hayes

I’ve been to a few clinics this year and I had the HIFU somewhere else and it didn’t work so I was worried to try again with RT Aesthetics. I shouldn’t of been! The results I’ve had from the full face and neck MED: HIFU Ultra has made such a big difference. My jowls have tightened, my skin looks better and the care throughout was great.

Sharna Jackson

Very professional service throughout my consultation and first 360 fat freezing treatment. I just sat and watched Netflix with a cup of tea and a glass of water. They even have iPads and music depending on what you’d like todo but I enjoyed watching Netflix. Results so far have been great and can only get better. All together it’s been a lovely experience

Harry Lloyd

The EMS Sculpt has really tightened my stomach and brought out my abs underneath. I used this on my arms too to help grow my muscles and what a huge difference it has made.

Margaret Tisbury

Pelvic Floor Strengthening has impacted my life so much for the better. I can run around with my kids, coughing and sneezing is not an issue anymore and I do not have anxiety about where the nearest toilet is. I am no longer making mental notes of where the nearest toilets are when I am out and about, it is such a relief not suffering from that anxiety anymore. I do not need to wear pads daily, I feel like me again, my confidence and my sex life are back. This treatment has saved my relationship.

Sasha McDonald

The EMS Sculpt has lifted and made my bum look so good! It has sculpted the cheeks, made it bigger, firmer and more sculpted overall. My friends keep asking and I keep telling them to go to RT Aesthetics.
