Medical Grade 360 Cryolipolysis
Cryolipolysis could help to shape and sculpt your body whilst boosting your self-confidence.
Cryolipolysis, also known as fat freezing, has become a popular treatment worldwide, with celebrities 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 or 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
Cryolipolysis is designed to rid stubborn areas of fat that are hard to eliminate through lifestyle, for example, the love handles, stomach, back and arms. Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) sessions last approximately 1 – 2 hours, during which you can enjoy catching up on your favourite Netflix series, reading a book, or even going to sleep.
360 Cryolipolysis Applicator
While standard applicators cool from two sides, the 360 fat freeze applicators freeze the whole area, thus destroying more fat and targeting areas that are challenging to treat with standard applicators. The MED: 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 then 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 some 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 developed dimples in their cheeks from fat loss. Clinical studies have shown reductions in pockets of fat following a fat-freezing treatment, proving to be safe and effective.
Clients can expect minimal discomfort during the Cryolipolysis treatment. 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.
