What is fat freezing?

Fat freezing allows you to destroy stubborn target areas of fat by freezing them. The cool temperatures cause apoptosis, ‘cell death’. These fat cells are metabolised through the lymphatic system allowing your body to safely and naturally drain the dead fat cells away.

How much can you lose with fat freezing?

You can expect to lose between 20 and 80 percent of the fat cells in your targeted area with fat freezing (cryogenic lipolysis). The size of the treatment area is the most significant factor that effects how many fat cells you can lose. It is important to recognise fat freezing is. It a weight loss treatment although it still result in the elimination of fat cells in a specific area. Following aftercare advice also plays a huge part in the result of the treatment.

Is fat freezing safe?

Cryogenic lipolysis is a relatively safe non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It does not require anaesthesia and eliminates the risk of bleeding of serious infection that come with surgical treatments. Fat freezing typically takes 30-40 minutes, with no downtime and minimal discomfort during and after treatment.
Whilst there are many benefits of fat freezing, it is important to be aware of any risks or side effects of any treatment you decide to have.
Although extremely rare, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia can occur in less than 1 percent of treatments. This means that the targeted fat cells grow larger rather than smaller. This is not a dangerous physical side effect but a cosmetic one that tend to effect more men than women. Reason for this is unknown.


Anti wrinkle injections vs Botox

Anti wrinkle reduction injections including Botox require a prescription. You will be asked to attend a consultation with our prescriber before treatment is commenced in order to discuss your suitability. If you feel this is not for you then we can discuss options for other treatments available that may be more suitable, whether that is at Hill Clinics or another Clinic in the local area. 
These particular prescription injections can be used to treat many areas for both cosmetic and medical purposes including - 
Forehead lines, bunny lines between the brows, frown lines, crows feet, hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) in areas such as armpits and hands, migraines and teeth grinding.

What is Radio frequency and how does it work?
 

Radio frequency is a technology used by many celebrities to tighten skin and reduce cellulite.  

By using radio frequency conducted through the skin, loose skin can tighten as the collagen production is stimulated. By heating the fat cells it can tighten and smooth the skin whilst also reducing cellulite. 

 

What is ultrasound cavitation and how does it work?
 

Ultrasound cavitation is used to target body fat in any area which is non-invasive, safe and effective. The cavitation waves emit a high pitched sound that targets fat cells only, breaking them apart and keeping every other cell safe. The body then metabolises these cells through the coming weeks and excreted through the lymphatic system. 

This is a non-surgical method of reducing cellulite and breaking down fat. 

 

How does the Brazilian bum lift work?
 

A non-surgical Brazilian bum lift is the non-invasive way to lift and sculpt the shape of your bum. Using radio frequency skin tightening, ultrasound cavitation fat melting and cellulite reduction we can reshape, smooth and tighten the area. With added fat freezing before hand we can black any stubborn fat pockets to aim for a better result. 

 

How long does the Brazilian bum lift last?
 

Based on an average of 3 sessions, results can last up to 12 months providing aftercare is followed.
