Cryotherapy commonly known as ‘fat freezing’ or technically referred to as ‘Cryolipolysis’ has been in the UK since 2013. The origins of the treatment stem from innovative use of extreme cold therapy pioneered by Harvard Medical school in the early 2000’s.
We were the 2nd clinic in the UK to offer this treatment back in 2013 and in the early years we focused entirely on this one service. Coming from a health, fitness and nutrition background enabled us to make big changes in peoples lives when incorporating this procedure.
What is it? How does it work? & what is the catch?
Fat freezing works in a relatively simple way, an anti-freeze membrane is placed on the skin, a vacuum head (multiple application sizes) is placed on top and suction pressure is applied to create an air-tight seal, the vacuum head then freezes the chosen area of body fat down to – 6c. The adipose tissue within the subcutaneous cell cannot withstand the temperature and cell apoptosis takes place resulting in your body flushing out the liquid contents of the fat cells through your lymphatic system. What this equates to in the real world is a very noticeable fat reduction in otherwise hard to shift or hard to target areas such as: inner thighs, outer thighs, love handles, lower stomach etc.
The treatment is relatively pain free and takes between 3 – 9 weeks to see the full effect and as your fat cells cannot re-inflate once they have been through this process, results are permanent.
There is no magic wand and there never will be, we always encourage, emphasize and support a healthy and balanced lifestyle but now more than ever, cutting edge treatment technologies such as Cryotherapy and many others are leading the way for non-invasive solutions to face and body concerns.
