fat freezing (cryolipolysis)

what is fat freezing (cryolipolysis)?

This is a medical-grade, non-invasive alternative to liposuction with no downtime, perfect for spot reductions.

Cryolipolysis works by taking the treatment area into a vacuum suction and reducing the temperature, killing the top 20 – 25% of fat cells in that area. The dead cells are then processed by the body’s lymphatic system which disposes of those unwanted cells normally.

Benefits:

  • Eliminate stubborn fat
  • Reshape problem areas
  • Can treat two areas at a time, so more efficient use of time
  • No downtime, walk in – walk out procedure
  • Comfortable treatment

Results are seen between 6 -12 weeks.

further information

We use the European Cooltech system which is at the forefront of fat freezing treatments. It has been clinically proven to destroy 25% of fat cells in the treated areas while preserving the surrounding skin and tissue. Cooltech has 5 different applicator designs which means this machine can target any area of the body, even under the chin. The Cooltech fat freezing system is a safe, easy treatment solution for people with difficult to treat areas of stubborn fat that no amount of exercise or dieting will remove. Cooltech is registered with the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia. You can be confident of the safety standards when booking a treatment with å tone.

The best candidates for cryolipolysis are those who are generally within 15kg of their ideal weight but who have stubborn pockets of fat that appear resistant to diet & exercise. Cryolipolysis is a safe effective treatment and reported complications are rare and appear to resolve without intervention.

The CooltechTM system targets just the body’s fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue. Controlled lowering of the temperature to around -8 degrees causes the fat cells to crystallise and die. These fat cells are removed by the lymphatic system and are naturally and permanently eliminated from the body. Fortunately, adults cannot regrow fat cells so cryolipolysis is the most effective non-surgical way to remove stubborn pockets of fat. Cooltech is clinically proven to remove up to 25% of fat cells in the treated area in 1 treatment!

The Cooltech system has more applicator styles than any other machine on the market and is therefore able to capable of treating more areas on the body and multiple areas at once.

Arms, knees, flanks, stomach, back, back of thigh, inner thighs and outer thighs. A small applicator can be placed underneath the chin to remove excess fat and give a more defined jawline.

You should start to see results from 4 to 10 weeks following your fat freezing session. This is of course dependent on how fast your body metabolises the dead fat cells. Full results should be evident after a 12 week period. Up to a 25% reduction can be seen in the area being treated from one session. You will continue to see results up to 3 months. Each client is an individual but generally you do not need more than 1-2 treatments per area and many achieve the desired result after just one treatment.

A specially designed single use gel pad is applied to the skin before treatment to protect the area and regulate the temperature on the skins surface. A vacuum applicator (handpiece) will be placed over the gel pad and you will experience some pulling as the vacuum draws the skin inside the area will feel cold and eventually become numb. The treatment lasts for a period of 45-70 minutes. During the treatment you can catch up on some reading, use our iPads or take a nap. When the treatment has finished the applicator is removed and our clinicians will massage the area to accelerate the body’s elimination process. There is minimal discomfort during the initial cooling process and some again at the last stage during the massage period. You are then free to go about your day.
