What is Fat Freezing?

Fat freezing treatment, also known as cryolipolysis, has taken the world by storm.

It all started in 2008 when two American doctors – Dr Dieter Manstein and Dr Rox Anderson from Massachusetts General Hospital experimented with tissue exposure to cold temperatures. They became intrigued by the phenomenon called “cold-induced fat necrosis”. Their observation revealed that they could reduce fat cells as a result of freezing, whereas other tissues would remain intact! They applied the freezing procedure locally with cold temperatures (from minus 8 to minus 10 degrees Celsius) to the body to trigger the breakdown of the fat cells underneath.

Commercial application of Cryolipolisis

Cryolipolisis has undergone rigorous studies to determine its therapeutic value. Initial findings were so promising that Dr Dieter Manstein and Dr Rox Anderson decided to create the first commercial machine.

Technology is always progressing. At present, Cryoskin is one of the most popular and advanced fat freezing devices on the market. The machine is able to deliver precisely controlled temperature to the treated area.

Approval by the therapeutic regulatory agencies

The idea of freezing fat is gaining popularity all over the world. In the United States, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved it in 2010. Since then, the treatments have increased by 823 per cent. The Therapeutic Goods Administration first approved cryolipolysis in Australia in 2015. It’s since then boomed in popularity and shows no signs of slowing down. More than eight million treatments were performed as of July 2019!

In Australia and New Zealand, hundreds of clinics also noticed tremendous benefits of these “cold therapies”.

What are the benefits of Cryolipolisis, (aka Fat Freezing procedures)

Cryo’ means icy cold, and ‘lipolysis’ is the word for breaking down fat, therefore it’s a perfect name for what it is: fat freezing!

Clinical studies showed that Cryolipolisis can be a very effective procedure – reduction in fat at the treatment site can be up to 25%

Some of the main benefits include:

  • It is non-invasive, non-surgical
  • Visible results appear after as little as one session
  • Described by many as pain-free
  • Timesaving – each fat freezing treatment only takes up to 60 minutes for one localised area.
  • Compared to liposuction, Cryobody Revolution’s cryolipolisis treatments can be done without anaesthetic.

What is Fat Freezing used for?

The non-invasive cryolipolisis process features applicators that effectively work on any body part. In our Sunshine Coast clinic, we successfully perform procedures on many body parts, for instance:

  • Inner thighs
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Waist

One of the most popular procedures is our CryoFacelift which rejuvenates and adds elasticity to the face. Our CryoSkin technique can also be very effective in reducing cellulite. Between 80-90 per cent of women will probably experience cellulite in their lifetimes. As a result, it is not surprising that this cellulite removal procedure is another favourite among our clients.

Why has Freezing Fat become so popular?

An increasing number of people are turning to cryolipolisis to improve their wellbeing.  They choose it over surgical and laser fat reduction alternatives.

Many in Caloundra and the greater Sunshine Coast region have embraced Cryobody Revolution’s fat freezing treatments. They embraced the benefit of fat reduction without the need for scalpels and surgeries.

There are several reasons behind fat freezing’s increasing popularity, such as:

  • It effectively and efficiently targets localised fat
  • It treats every area of your body
  • It’s done using a safe, controlled cooling process

It should be noted that our treatment’s effectiveness appeals to people who are looking to reduce body fat but want noticeable results in the shortest amount of time.

If you’re looking to reduce body fats in the fastest way possible, fat freezing is the way to go!
