CRYOLIPOLYSIS

Best for

Stubborn pockets & body sculpting.

Tech explained

3D-cryofreeze is a unique non-invasive treatment using a combination of electro and cryo therapy. Using the 3D-cryofreeze handpiece, this creates vacuum which draws the fat into the handpiece. This localised area within the handpiece is then frozen, causing 20% - 40% of the fat cells in that area to die.

How this tech works

3D-cryofreeze targets specially the fat cells. By lowering the temperature to -6 degrees it pinpoints the content of the fat cells, causing them to crystalize. No other structures are affected by this process. The remaining content of the fat cells is then disposed of naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.

What areas can be improved with 3D-cryofreeze?

This treatment is best for targeting those stubborn areas that just won’t shift. Typical areas ideal for 3D-cryofreeze including inner thighs, lower abdomen and ‘muffin tops’, however your therapist will provide a tailored treatment plan to provide you with the best possible results which may include combining 3D-cryofreeze with other technologies as part of a treatment program. Two areas can now be treated simultaneously with the 3D-cryofreeze duo application.

How many treatments are recommended?

Only one treatment is required per area.

 

What Results Can I Expect from this treatment?

On average you will see a 20% - 40% reduction of the fat in the localised area. As the body takes several months to push out the dead fat cells, results will be visible after 6 - 12 weeks*.

Can I combine 3D-cryofreeze with other treatments?

3D-cryofreeze is a one off treatment, however it can be devised as a part of a course of treatments depending on your goals, your therapist will discuss this with you. It is great as a one off treatment for targeting stubborn areas, but can also be combined with other technologies on the machine to enhance results. For example if you have a pocket of stubborn fat but also loose skin on that area, it would be advised to combine 3D-cryofreeze with a course of radio frequency to both remove the fat and tighten/ tone the skin.

What will I experience during treatment?

First of all, an anti-freeze pad is placed onto the area of treatment, to protect the skin. During treatment the fat is drawn into a suction cup before freezing. This will provide a slight pulling sensation and the area will be cold. Within a few minutes the area should go numb. The handpiece will be on the area from 30 - 60 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
