One of the most frequently asked questions we get is, “Does fat freezing hurt?”. We are happy to say that the answer is NO!
Unlike other fat loss treatments, Cryoskin Slimming has all the fat loss benefits without the undesirable side effects. In fact, most people say it is actually quite relaxing and calming, and many fall asleep during their session.
What is Cryoskin Slimming/Fat Freezing?
Cryoskin Slimming treatments available at our Brisbane West End and Maroochydore clinics is a painless non-invasive way to reduce stubborn body fat, by freezing fat cells away, while also tightening the skin and promoting collagen growth. Cryoskin treatments use sub-zero temperatures to freeze fat cells while normal body tissues remain unaffected.
How does it work?
Cryoskin fat freezing is administered as a massage technique, consisting of three parts. It starts with a heated massage to loosen up the fat cells. This feels a lot like a hot stone massage. Then the temperature decreases to -8° C to destroy the fat cells. This feels similar to rubbing an ice cube on your skin.
Finally, the treatment ends with another heated massage to help eliminate the fat cells. The dead fat cells travel to your lymphatic drainage system to be flushed out of your body. This process mimics the body’s natural process of apoptosis.
Cryoskin targets stubborn fat areas like muffin tops, love handles, inner and outer thighs and flabby tummies. Treatments are a much safer alternative to liposuction, and alongside exercise and a good diet, problem areas can be reduced without going under the knife.
How long does it take to see results?
Clients can expect to see results from Cryoskin fat freezing treatments from 15 days to 3 weeks after the start of treatment. Once the fat cells have been frozen and destroyed, they cannot return. As long as you maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine, of course!
Is there a recovery period?
Our non-invasive, walk-in and walk-out Cryoskin appointments require no downtime and clients can return to normal activity after their hour session.
