Reveal a More Sculpted You with CoLaz Fat Freezing
The days of having to go under a knife to achieve body tone are no more. Fat freezing—also known interchangeably as Cryolipolysis or LipoFreeze—is a non-invasive, non-surgical method of eliminating fat from the body for good. This fat reduction procedure was first approved for use in Europe in 2009 and its popularity is growing steadily.
The treatment’s inspiration comes from a medical phenomenon known as Cold Panniculitis. Also referred to as ‘Popsicle’ Panniculitis, this ailment predominantly affects infants and young children after sucking an ice cube or ice lollies for too long. Symptoms present as nontender swelling and redness in the cheek and in some cases, dimples.

Dermatologists from Massachusetts General Hospital then experimented further with the effects of applying cooling treatments, which eventually lead to the development of the fat freezing/Cryolipolysis procedure.
Fat freezing first became popular for minor spot treatments as an alternative to liposuction.
Advances with technology now mean the non-surgical fat reduction treatmentcan tackle love handles, muffin tops, and the brabulge and much more, as well as the loose skin under the chin.
This area, in particular, has always been more difficult to alter through natural methods like diet and exercise which only adds to the Cryolipolysis treatment popularity.
While the Cryolipolysis procedure is ideal for those looking to make minor improvements—it’s not designed for significant fat removal on the same level as surgical treatments like liposuction. Rather, it’s a safe, painless, and revolutionary fat loss and body reshaping techniquewhich offers a compellingalternative to major surgery.
Diet- and exercise-resistant fat is a common concern for many people considering cosmetic surgery. Certain specific areas of localised fat (around the stomach, thighs, and back especially) can be hard to get rid of permanently, which is why many have turned to liposuction over the years to refine their body contours.
However, anyone who has researched liposuction knows that it is far from a gentle means to achieving fat loss. The most common procedure,Tumescent liposuction, has ranked as one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgeries for a while now. However, fat freezing now offers a more modern, cheaper and utterly non-invasive option as a safer alternative. It’s a great match for those near their target weight but who need an additional helping hand to shift the last small, localised trouble spots.
While liposuction works better for those looking to see more dramatic results quicker, Cryolipolysis is a much less aggressive—and cost effective—treatment.
How Does Fat Freezing Work?
The fat freezing procedure uses a specialised Cryolipolysis vacuum device to expose unwanted fat cells to the cold (the temperature will gradually fall to -5 to -8 degrees in the session) without affecting surrounding areas. When cooled to a controlled temperature, fat cells crystallise and die. Cold temperatures can cause blood vessels to constrict and reduce blood flow, but the vacuum pulls the blood flow and accompanying inflammatory cells to the fat layers beneath your skin to help with the destruction of fat. The dead, frozen fat cells are then dischargedfrom the body through the liver within several weeks of treatment (a process known as lymphatic drainage), revealing full results of fat loss within three months. Cryolipolysis eradicates fat cells completely.
During a fat freezing session, while lying down—or seated in a reclining chair—for up to 30 – 45 min,the vacuum sets to work crystallising fat cells. Any discomfort surrounding fat freezing is usually mild enough for clients to read or take a nap. You may experience a slight tugging sensation through the vacuum, which draws in the fat; but this is entirely normal and all a part of the procedure. Most people do not feel anything. However, it is common to experience some numbness or loss of sensation in the treated area for up to a month post-treatment. It’s possible to achieve up to 40% fat reduction through fat freezing.

While some diets and fat-reduction treatmentsleave you swinging back and forth between varying "before" and "after" versions of yourself, fat freezing provides long-lasting results that will appear within three months post-treatment. With CoLaz you can take the next step to a slimmer, sculpted you.
Patient experiences will differ according to body type and the chosen area of treatment. Immediately after your fat freezing session, the treated area may be blanched, bruised or tender. Most people will have little discomfort post-treatment, while others may experience some redness and numbness. All of these will eventually disappear given time. Massaging the treated area every day post-treatment for up to two weeks can help to stimulate the process of lymphatic drainage (the fat breakdown).

Will I need to take time off work? There is no downtime necessary with Cryolipolysis treatments, and you can resume regular exercise and activity immediately on the same day.
How many sessions will I need? CoLaz fat freezing procedure will remove 20-40% of the fat from the treated area. Not everyone will see the expected results with just one session. Areas can be revisited as necessary in the future to achieve the desired body shape.
Many people start to see the effects a few days after the treatment, but it can take between often takes 1 to 3 months for the full results to show.
How safe is Cryolipolysis? Common side effects after the treatment include redness, numbness, and bruising lasting for a few hours. Symptoms will always subside over time though and are not known for having any long-lasting complications.
How much will the treatment cost? We encourage clients to arrange a free consultation with us first to discuss the size and desired outcome of the areas you wish to have treated to give you a better idea of cost.
Will I put the weight back on? Our bodies are made up of a finite number of fat cells. However, excessive calorie intake can trigger any remaining fat cells to overcompensate and increase. It is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and plenty of exercise post-treatment.
