Reveal a More Sculpted You with CoLaz Fat Freeze (Cryolipolysis)
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 non tender 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 treatment can tackle love handles, muffin tops, and the bra bulge 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 technique which offers a compelling alternative to major surgery.
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 discharged from 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
At a fat freezing session, while lying down for up to 30 – 45 min, we place a vacuum handle over your body which crystallizes your fat cells.
Watch a quick demonstration of Cryolipolysis in action.
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 treatments leave 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.
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.
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.
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.
