Fat Freeze & Cryo-lipolysis
Freeze Your Fat Slim: The Non-surgical Treatment Which Reduces Unwanted Fat
So What is ‘Non-Surgical Liposuction’ or ‘Cryo-lipolysis’?
For a long time, the only way to lose weight and reduce fat deposits without exercising or dieting has been liposuction. This is a very effective procedure, but also very invasive with potential for serious complications. This, plus the high cost and long downtime, means this treatment doesn’t appeal to everyone!
This is where we can help you. Our ‘freeze your fat slim’ non-surgical liposuction treatments in Bristol and Cardiff provide a non-invasive alternative that has been developed using ice technology.
Recent research has confirmed that there are millions of people in the UK who would like to remove small, stubborn deposits of fat in areas such as inner thighs, love handles, man boobs or back, but are reluctant to undergo complicate liposuction surgery.
Our non-surgical liposuction allows you to remove these unwanted fat pockets to help shape your body in all the right places and look amazing, whether it be in your bikini sat on a beach or in a figure hugging black dress at this year’s Christmas cocktail parties!
How Long Does This Take?
Well, our non-surgical liposuction treatments (also known as Cryo-lipolysis) takes only 60 minutes, freezing fat cells in hard to shift areas, eradicating up to 26% of fatty tissue in just one treatment.
Sensation is minimal and the fat cells naturally waste away leaving a more toned body.

Our Cryo-lipolysis system uses powerful, but non-invasive vacuum pressure to gently hold your fat tissue between the cooling induction plates to treat the areas you want gone!
At first you will feel a light warm hugging sensation from the vacuum, which is holding the plates in the exact area being treated. Very shortly afterwards comes a lightly chilled feeling as the ice technology takes effect and the fat cells begin to freeze.
Throughout the treatment, you will feel a slight numb tingling sensation. However, all you have to do is sit back and try and relax for an hour while the machine does its magic.
Your skin and muscles are left in perfect condition with just the fat cells being eliminated! These dead cells are then metabolised by your liver and removed naturally like all other waste products.
When the machine is removed, you can expect slight redness and tenderness for a few days. You will then start to see the amazing results over the next few weeks as the appearance further improves.
So, what do we do?
Well, first we gently warm up your desired treatment area to encourage your blood and fat to separate. Next we carefully freeze away your fat cells – without the need for high risk invasive surgery.
Our non-surgical liposuction machine uses advanced freezing technology to selectively target and dissolve fat cells through a gradual process, keeping the surrounding tissues intact. When fat cells are exposed to precise cooling, the process of apoptosis over the next month or two gradually reduces the thickness of the fat layer. The cells in the treated area are gently absorbed through the normal metabolism process of the liver.
The science behind it all
Scientists in the 1970s discovered that the subcutaneous layer of fat went through a cell death process when chilled to certain temperatures. It has since been confirmed that fat cells are more susceptible to cold than skin, nerves and muscle, as the liquid in the fat cells is converted into solids at particular low temperatures.
The Institute of Aesthetic Medicine in Glasgow have confirmed initial findings from research by Dr Darren McKeown’s, which are extremely exciting. These finding show results of 11% to an astounding 59% fat reduction in just one treatment, with further reductions in subsequent treatments.
A mere 7 seven days after your non-surgical liposuction procedure the cells start to alter their shape, indicating the desired trauma to the cell has commenced. A week later apoptosis should be underway and you will be delighted to notice a slight reduction in your fatty deposits.
However, to experience the full results of a treatment, it can take up to 4 months. But as with most non-surgical cosmetic treatments, some clients will experience a noticeable reduction within just two weeks!
There is no recovery time, which means you can resume normal activities straight after the procedure. Plus, there’s no need to exercise afterwards to activate the procedure – this is all taken care of naturally by your body…

1. How do I book a treatment?
First off, we carry out a telephone consultation to assess if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. This can save you time visiting us only to be told that you are not suitable.
Once we have confirmed we can treat you, we arrange a convenient time for you. On the day a face-to-face consultation is carried out to ensure your utmost safety and to check for anything you may have failed to inform us of.
2. Where does all the fat go?
Fat cells are simply destroyed and dissolved into the body via the lymphatic and immune system.
3. What are the after effects?
The reason Cryo-lipolysis has become so popular is not just down to the excellent results it achieves, but that there are generally few side effects. No recovery period or downtime is required, and it is very rare to have extended redness or bruising post treatment.
In most cases, you are able to resume normal daily activities immediately after the session without discomfort – it’s even possible to have a treatment on your lunch break!
4. How long does it take?
Each treatment takes up to 60 minutes per area, depending on depth of fat to be treated. Additional time may be required if you require more than one area.
5. How many treatments will I need?
One session is sufficient for most people in most areas. Cryo-lipolysis has the advantage of not usually requiring a course of treatment. However, this obviously depends on the amount of fat you would like removed and the amount to begin with.
If after one treatment you’re not happy with the results achieved and you want to further improve on this then we do ask that you leave 4 to 8 weeks between treatments.
6. Is it permanent?
The fat cells that will be crystalised through the Cryo-lipolysis procedure are absorbed by the body’s natural processes. Once destroyed the same fat cells can’t grow back.
7. Do I need to exercise afterwards or go on a diet?
No diets or intense exercise is needed post treatment. However, Cryo-lipolysis is not a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise. After care includes increasing your water intake, pus avoiding caffeine and other toxins to support your bodies natural processes.
8.Does it hurt?
The treatment for most is completely pain free and comfortable. We even provide you with entertainment during your procedure, however clients often fall asleep during their treatment.
9. How long does it take to see results?
This depends on the individual, the fat thickness, and the area treated. Changes happen over a number of weeks as the natural process happens, so some patience is required . Maximum results would be expected between 12 and 16 weeks, however some of our clients begin to see changes after only 2 to 3 weeks.
