There are safe and effective, non-invasive fat loss treatments without the need to go under the knife. Fat loss treatments without pain and recovery time.

Here are the facts about the safe, non-invasive fat removal treatment called Fat Freezing.

Why are we so caught up with body image?

Even those two words, ‘body image’ is enough to send us bonkers with insecurities
and possibilities, right?

There are definitely trends fuelled by social media that make us feel lousy or not worthy or not perfect. However, when you think about it, corsets were all the rage a couple of centuries ago, right? Even going back to Cleopatra or the Gladiators, there was a definite representation of what was deemed beautiful or acceptable. Body image has been embedded in our world forever, perhaps even in our genetic wiring.

There’s no escaping it. And it continually evolves.

Right now, the world is obsessed with managing fat on our bodies.

When we start talking about ‘fat’ and ‘fat reduction’ and ‘fat loss’, it can feel like a deep rabbit hole full of endless options and decision-making. Having fat on our body is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s also our own business if we want to reduce our problem areas, right? It’s our body. Our home. We’re allowed to renovate our homes. Why can’t we renovate our bodies a little if it makes us happy and more confident?

We can. We don’t have to put up with those stubborn fat pockets. The key is finding the safest, most effective treatments to treat fat removal. Which is thankfully possible these days, unlike a few years ago when the only option was going under the knife.

Fat reduction technology and treatments have come a long way. Lucky for us! And our bodies.

Why go for non-surgical fat removal treatments?

Let’s face it. We’re pretty much exhausted all the time. Keeping up with work schedules, gym and workout schedules, healthy eating prep and cooking, roles as mothers/fathers/friends/sisters/brothers.

Who’s got the time to work out 3 hours a day to keep trim and toned and treat those stubborn fat pockets? That’s the beauty of the new, non-surgical fat reduction treatments (sometimes called ‘non-surgical lipo’) like Fat Freezing. They work fast, they’re safe, and there’s no downtime, pain or scarring. They’re ideal for treating those stubborn pockets of fat that our yoga sessions, walks and sporadic gym visits can’t seem to get rid of.

Now we’re not saying everyone needs to do worry about fat loss or fat reduction. Everyone is their own person and should do whatever makes them happy. But when you look in the mirror, if those stubborn love handles or thighs or buttock areas are really getting you down and have been for some time, affecting your confidence levels, it is now possible to treat the area safely and without any medical procedure with non-surgical fat reduction treatments. Which is exciting news!

Unhappiness is disempowering. Confidence and choices are empowering, right? The ability to change what we’re uncomfortable with, is an incredible opportunity if it feels right and if we choose safe, effective treatments within supportive, trusting environments.

Remember, your body is your home and you’ve got it for life. And it’s all yours. Feel empowered to make choices that make you happy. Feel empowered to change what you’re not comfortable with. Like those annoying and stubborn fat pockets!

How does non-surgical Fat Freezing work?

  • A special vacuumed applicator is applied to an area of the body and a controlled cooling technique lowers the treatment area to -9 celcius.
  • This cooling energy treats the fat layer without any damage to surrounding cells.
  • As fat cells cannot survive at this temperature, these fat cells crystallise, die and over a period of 12 weeks naturally eliminate from the body.
  • The result? Up to 30% of permanent fat cell death in the treated areas.
  • Importantly, there is no downtime afterwards, so you can get on with your day without any discomfort. Do it during your lunchbreak! Now that’s an efficient break in your day.

Freezing the fat off. Sounds pretty good, huh? All this, without the risk of traditional fat reduction techniques like invasive liposuction.

Why choose non-surgical Fat Freezing over surgical treatments like Liposuction?

Fat Freezing for fat loss is a safer alternative to surgical options like Liposuction because no incision is required. This means recovery with Fat Freezing is a thousand percent faster and easier, plus there’s no risk of infection or scarring or pain. Liposuction can also creates lumpy appearances down the track. With Fat Freezing, there’s no risk of this.

What areas can I treat with Fat Freezing?

Fat Freezing is an effective, non-invasive fat loss treatment for any area of your body that has pockets of fat thicker than 3cm:

  • Arms
  • Abdomen/’tyres’/stomach rolls
  • Love handles/Love grips
  • Inner thighs
  • Outer thighs
  • Back of bra area
  • Double chin
  • Man boobs

Does non-surgical Fat Freezing go by any other name?

There are some other names for non-surgical Fat Freezing, sometimes labelled ‘non-surgical lipo’. You may have heard of ‘Coolsculpting’, ‘Fat Freezing Cryolipolysis’, and ‘Clatuu’. These treatments all use a controlled cooling technique to permanently eliminate stubborn fat in the treated areas.
Our safe and effective treatment performed within our Body Catalyst clinics in Australia is called ‘Fat Freezing Cryolipolysis’ and are widely used in leading clinics around the world as one of the most modern techniques for fat loss with the latest equipment.

  • The body naturally eliminates the fat cells over 10-12 weeks
  • No downtime (can be done on your lunch break)

The risks of Fat Freezing for fat loss

With any treatment to the body using external equipment, there are possible side effects depending on your individual body. However, they are minimal compared to the invasive fat reduction techniques like liposuction.

  • Possible side effects include temporary bruising, redness, swelling, numbness and tenderness and this is all normal
  • Some people can experience itching of the skin.
  • 1 in 20 experience strong cramping or muscle spasms which can occur up to 4 weeks after the treatment.
  • A very rare side effect is Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH) (a hardened overgrowth of tissue). The risk is only 0.0051% or 1:20,000 people.

Is Fat Freezing the only non-surgical treatment method available?

There are other safe and effective fat reduction treatments alongside Fat Freezing like Fat Cavitation, HIFU Skin Tightening and TeslaFormer Muscle Definer.
