How does Fat freezing work?
The treatments are powered by cryolipolysis – a medical treatment used to destroy fat cells. A device called KassenLife (by Trucryo) sprays liquid Co2 (dry spray) which is extremely cold onto the skin causing thermal shock. The thermal shock causes apoptosis or cell death of subcutaneous fat tissues.
Does is hurt and what are the risks?
Treatment doesn’t hurt although the cold can make it a little uncomfortable, some people say it feels ‘a little spiky’. While the risks are minimal there is a risk of ‘frostnip’. The KassenLife device has built highly sensitive temperature sensors which indicate to the practitioner what temperature the skin is at all times and should the temperature fall too low the device automatically cuts out so the chances of trauma are minimal.
How many treatments do you need?
A minimum of five treatments are recommended for best results. On your first appointment, we talk through all the risks,complete the consent and discuss which areas you are concerned about. If you are medically able and wish to go ahead that day we can do this, your following appointments are made between 2-7 days apart. Appointments are thirty minutes but treatment time is much less than this depending on the number of areas being treated. The treatment is non-invasive and there are no limits to how many you can have.
How long do the effects last?
You will see a change immediately after treatment -the skin will feel tighter and firmer. Throughout the course of treatment this will continue. You will need to drink a minimum of 2ltrs of water a day to encourage the toxins out of your system. The targeted fat is destroyed for good but even with liposuction if you do not maintain a healthy diet/lifestyle there is the risk that you will reproduce more fat.
What areas can be treated?
The KassenLife device can target both small and large areas with ease including; stomach, back, arms, thighs, buttocks, jawline/chin, breast.
How much does it cost?
A course of five treatments cost £250
