Cryolipolysis – Fat Freezing for Body Sculpting

Researchers at Harvard University noticed that children who eat a lot of ice lollies tend to have dimples!

It seemed – and turns out to be exactly that – the cold was selectively freezing fat pockets in the cheeks. So, they “did the math” and set about their research in search for the ultimate fat-reduction technique!

How Does It Work?

To date, over 60 clinical trials have been conducted proving that this process is extremely effective – with 85% client satisfaction.
The secret to all this is the fact that fat freezes at a higher temperature than water and other bodily tissues. Therefore, it is not only selective in its function, but also safe to surrounding areas.

What happens to the fat cells?

They are crystallized. Frozen. This process is called Apoptosis. Similar to when water becomes ice and then has a different molecular structure. This temperature reduction literally freezes them so they are no longer able to function and they literally die off and are eliminated from the body through its own natural metabolic processes.

How many sessions do I need?

Each session gets rid of 25-40% of fat cells.

Only 2 – 3 sessions are required, 4 weeks apart. Result should be visible within 4-12 weeks.

Each session takes 45 minutes – 1.5 hours depending on the area.

Radio Frequency Skin Tightening

RF skin tightening uses High Frequency RF waves of energy to selectively heat the sub-dermal connective tissues (collagen protein fibres).

How Does RF Skin Tightening Work?

This technology works by heating up the skin, the dermis in particular, to approximately 42 degrees, using a treatment head with three or more “poles” emitting RF waves.

This targets the area immediately beneath the treatment head to a consistent depth of up to 8 mm, triggering three specific reactions.

The laying down of fresh, new collagen fibres results in skin remodelling, taking place over 3-6 months and lasting up to two years, although “top up” treatments every month can prolong this effect.

The Multi-Polar RF technology generates heat in the subcutaneous layer, causing the existing active collagen to Contract, delivering immediately tighter feeling skin.

The RF treatment also selectively denatures (breaks down) the old, inflexible collagen and stimulates the re-growth of fresh, healthy and flexible collagen fibres. With successive treatments, this cumulative effect will deliver long lasting results Over time the volume of collagen increases in a more organised structure. This reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also providing tighter, plumper firmer feeling skin.

What are the benefits of this treatment?
  • Completely pain free and safe
  • Absolutely non-invasive
  • No drugs, needles, knives or incisions, unlike more well-known alternatives such as Botox and “fillers”
  • No down time · Drive, operate machinery, go about the rest of your day immediately after the treatments
  • Works in harmony with the body, leveraging and stimulating natural biological processes
How many sessions do I need?


Course of 6 treatments 1-2 weeks apart is recommended for best results. To maintain results, each 4 weeks thereafter.

However, you will see instant lift straight after the first treatment.


8-12 sessions, twice a week.

Ultrasonic Cavitation for Body Contouring

This technology works by transmission of ultra-high frequency (40 kHz) sound wave energy into the sub-dermal tissues. This targets the area immediately beneath the treatment head to a consistent depth of 8-10mm.

This energy impacts the adipocytes, forming low pressure bubbles between the cells, weakening cell cohesion and rupturing the cell membranes.

The sound wave form then pulverises the fat cells, driving out the fat cell contents into the interstitial space, where lymphatic drainage removes them to be used in normal metabolic processes.

Ultrasonic Cavitation is especially effective at breaking down stubborn or hard fat deposits, whilst also promoting a re-organisation of the fat cell structures to deliver smoother and softer feeling skin.

How many sessions do I need?

It is recommended to do the course of 8-12 sessions spaced 3 days apart for the first 3 sessions, then once a week. Cavitation is often combined with Radio Frequency for body tightening.
