Do you have stubborn pockets of fat that you want to remove for good? Would you like to get rid of your muffin tops, spare tyre, or bingo wings? Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) offers an effective fat removal solution without going under the knife.
3D Lipo’s Cryolipolysis is a process during which your fat cells are effectively frozen, reducing unwanted flab and leaving you with an attractive, toned appearance. Cryolipolysis is one of several 3D liposuction treatments and as with all other 3D treatments, this fat removal procedure is entirely non-invasive.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis uses cooling technology that was developed by dermatologists at Harvard Medical School. They discovered that fat cells are highly responsive to the effects of cold in contrast to the surrounding tissue as fat cells crystallise at a different temperature than other cells. So Cryolipolysis breaks down fat cells while sparing the surrounding tissues such as the skin, muscle and nerve fibers.
How does this remove fat?
A special vacuum suction cup with cooling plates is placed on the body area for treatment. The area is then chilled. The fat cells in the treatment area crystallise and break down. The surrounding blood vessels, nerves, etc are much less sensitive to cool exposure and remain unaffected. The broken down fat cells are harmlessly passed from the body as waste.
How long is a Cryolipolysis session?
Each session is up to 45 minutes per area, depending on the thickness of the area to be treated, and how quickly your body responds to the cooling process. Your treatment will be tailored to your individual requirements which are discussed in your pre-treatment consultation. Additional time will be required if you require more than one area.
What will the result be?
Clinical studies on Cryolipolysis have shown the reduction of treated fat is between 20% to 40%. Results will vary on the individual, the thickness of the fat deposits in each area, and the lifestyle maintained after treatment. Those that follow the aftercare advice will get the best results!
What will I feel during the treatment?
During this treatment you will feel a sensation similar to a ‘pull’ on the treated area as there is a vacuum effect from the equipment to secure the treatment area in place during the session. Then you will feel an intense cold sensation in the treatment area. This feeling is unusual, but not at all painful. We often have clients fall asleep during their session!
Is everyone suitable for Cryolipolysis treatment?
The ideal candidates for Cryolipolysis are people who want to reduce localised fat deposits, for example on the abdomen, flanks, lower back, hips, thighs, upper arms etc. These areas tend to be unresponsive to diet and exercise. Although most people are treatable, it is not an overall weight loss solution. We suggest that the ideal candidate is within or near their ideal body weight to see the best results.
What is the main difference compared to other fat removal procedures?
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment of fat that results in a notable and natural reduction of fat tissue, avoiding the body trauma of other invasive fat removal methods such as liposuction, with its risk of damage to surrounding tissue. Cryolipolysis differs from laser lipo offerings that use lasers (like I-Lipo, Strawberry and Laser Lipo).
No exercise is required for the treatment to get results and the results are permanent. The results are not as fast or as dramatic as invasive procedures such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, but Fat Freezing is an effective alternative for those wanting to avoid the higher cost, pain, risk, and recovery time associated with surgical options.
Does Cryolipolysis work?
YES – There are numerous clinical trials, celebrity reviews, and before & after photos which support the effectiveness of fat freezing Cryolipolysis.
What happens to the fat cells that have been treated?
The treated fat cells perish and are removed from the body via the lymphatic & immune system. The body then flushes the dead fat cells from the system using the body’s natural processes. The area treated becomes smaller in size over the following weeks as this elimination process happens.
How many sessions will I need?
One session is sufficient per area. Cryolipolysis has the advantage of not requiring a course of treatment. Depending on the thickness of the fat and your personal goals, fat freezing may be repeated in the same area a second time, but this is not usually necessary. If you decide you would like a further reduction in the same area, you will need to wait approximately 45 – 60 days before your next treatment. This is to give the body enough time to process and eliminate the dead fat cells from the initial treatment.
When will I see results?
This depends on the individual, the fat thickness, and the area treated. Changes happen over 12 weeks, although some clients start to see changes at around 2 weeks. In clinical trials 12 weeks post treatment, 9 out of 10 people saw a visible reduction in the treated area.
What will I feel after the treatment?
The beauty of Cryolipolysis is there is NO recovery period, or downtime.
-You will experience some short-term redness and cold/numbness on the treated area after the session.
-Very occasionally on sensitive skin you may experience a slight haematoma due to the vacuum (similar to a love bite). This will disappear within a few days. Very occasionally some people may experience swelling, superficial bruising, extended redness.
You can resume normal daily activities immediately after the session, or return to work if you scheduled your treatment during your lunch break.
Do I need to follow a diet or exercise programme too?
No diet plan is required and you do not have to change your exercise habits for the treatment to work. However, Cryolipolysis is not a substitute for taking care of your body. After the treatment you may feel more motivated to take care of yourself, after all you have made an investment in yourself. Having said that, combining Cryolipolysis with a healthy diet and lifestyle does tend to further maximise your result. You will be given after care advice to support your body’s natural elimination process.
What areas can you treat?
Upper & lower abdomen, upper arms, inner and outter thighs, love handles, flanks, muffin top, banana rolls (underneath buttocks), hips, male torso/man boobs. The applicator cannot be used for the chin or ankles, as usually these areas are too small to treat. Cryolipolysis can be used to reduce “man boobs” but can not be used to treat female breast tissue.
