Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) – Please check with the salon for offers and promotions

Cryolipolysis, also known as Fat Freezing is the closest thing you can get to liposuction without actually going under the knife. This is a non-invasive treatment and can be carried out within a hour leaving you free to carry on with your daily business as usual – no recovery time needed!

This treatment can be supported with Cavitation and Radio Frequency treatments especially, if skin is especially saggy or if you want to see results faster with the knowledge that the fat cells will be permanently destroyed with Cryolipolysis. If you are unsure if you need both treatments and if you have no rush, such as a holiday or event to slim down for, we personally would recommend on the side of caution to ensure that you do not spend more time and money than is needed. Adding Cavitation and Radio Frequency will remove any additional fat and more importantly, lift, tighten and rejuvenate the skin surface as fat loss with skin being left droopy or saggy is not a good look.

Cryolipolysis:

  • Selectively targets fat cells
  • Offers Permanent inch loss
  • Is Non invasive
  • Has no recovery time
  • Harvard proven technology

How it Works

Cryolipolysis was developed by applying low temperatures to tissue via thermal conduction. The adipocyte (fat cells) are rich with saturated fatty acids, these cells are particularly sensitive to temperature reduction and freezing. Under such extreme conditions the fat cells die. Other cells such as skin tissue, blood vessels, and our nervous system are not as sensitive to freezing and are therefore unaffected by the Lipo Angel ICE treatment.

 

Aftercare Advice

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

  • Increase your fluid intake to assist with the ‘flushing’ out of the crystallized lipids in the fat cells
  • Lymphatic massage will accelerate the process of removing the fat cells.
  • Regular body brushing at home is a great way of stimulating the lymphatic system to naturally eliminate the fat cells
  • Exercise a minimum of 1 hour a week (this is advised but not essential)

Should you have any concerns or queries either before or after your treatment then you are more than welcome to pop into the salon for a chat or give us a call.

* Please note: Should any adverse reaction occur including a cold injury, or painful blisters. Please seek medical attention from a doctor specialising in the treatment of burns.

Cryoliplysis FAQ

After your consultation, measuring and photos, you will have a membrane (which looks like a big wet wipe) placed on the treatment area. Admittedly the membrane is momentarily very cold despite coming out of the foil packet at room temperature but after the initial few seconds, it warms and it doesn’t make your body feel cold. The hand piece has cooling plates that are set to -5°C and is placed on the treatment area and the suction is started to gain a seal on the area. Cushions are then placed around the hand piece to keep it in place, before the suction pressure is reduced for the remainder of the 45 minute treatment.
Cryolipolysis is not a method of weight loss. It is designed to reshape and sculpt the body and remove localised stubborn fat or cellulite. Lipo Angel treatments work best when combined with low fat and low carbohydrate diet and regular exercise and these will help you to lose weight.
Full results will be seen after 8-12 weeks. We do request that you come back at week 6 for an interim follow up and then again at week 12 for a final measure and photo if appropriate. These follow ups are completely free of charge so there are no additional charges for this service.
Many people will find that only one Cryolipolysis treatment is required. Depending on your personal goals and budget, we may recommend teaming the Cryolipolysis with Cavitation and Radio Frequency. Everyone is individual so we can discuss the best personal treatment plan for you.
Yes, two areas can be treated on in one session however, they must not be in adjoining areas and on opposite sides to ensure the lymph glands are not individually overwhelmed.
You may have a further treatment in the same area after three months however, you can have Cryolipolysis in different area(s) after four weeks.

Yes, the fat cells are destroyed permanently.
The treatment including consultation and measurement is normally 45 minutes to one hour for one treatment. Should you wish to have two treatments, providing they are not in adjoining areas and are on opposite sides, we can do both areas on the same visit. However the second area will be treated following the first area so this will increase your treatment time.
You must wait a minimum of 3 months after normal birth of your baby or a minimum of 6 months after C section. It is best to get GP approval post childbirth prior to commencing lipo cavitation.
No, the great thing about the Lipo Angel service is that you can go about your day as normal. We do advise you to increase your water intake by 2 litres to help with the fat removal.
You would feel very uncomfortable so it is not advised.
Yes, it is company policy to not provide Cryolipolysis to anyone under the age of 18.
Yes absolutely you can, this is a different treatment to Cryolipolysis. The micro lift and photon therapy stimulates cell renewal and collagen production, tones the muscles of the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improves and lifts sagging skin.
Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol after your service. Try and increase your heart rate by taking some exercise for the best results (even by doing some household chores), and avoid too many carbohydrates.
The treatment is non-invasive so there are no scars and you won’t have to take time off work to recover. We are fully committed to ensure your privacy is maintained at all times.
