Is this for me?

Your Questions Answered

Why are non-surgical fat reduction treatments becoming popular?

Because you get the benefits of liposuction, without the surgery, and it works. The results are proven and visible. Our treatments are all non-invasive and do not penetrate the skin, so there is no risk of infection. No downtime is needed and treatments can take place within your lunch break.

I already diet and exercise, how can body contouring and sculpting treatments help me?

Diet and exercise are important in maintaining your weight and overall health. Unfortunately, irrespective of how well people eat or how much they exercise, some of us still have stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t budge. Our treatments specifically target these trouble areas to eliminate the fat.

What is the difference between fat loss and weight loss?

Weight loss is when your fat cells (amongst other tissues, like muscle mass) shrink in size, but the number of fat cells remain the same (hence why it’s so easy to put the weight back on). Whereas fat loss is actually reducing the number of fat cells in an area having a more permanent effect on the body. Our Cryo (fat freezing) treatment results in fat loss.

Are non-surgical fat reduction treatments safe?

Yes! Our treatments are non-invasive, meaning the treatment does not penetrate the skin so there is no risk of infection or complication. Our equipment is medical grade and registered on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG). Clatuu is entered in the ARTG, #243432

Is body sculpting and contouring for me?

Our non-invasive treatments are highly effective on those who are within 10-15 kilos of their ideal body weight. However as trained nutritionists, our Body Experts can provide a personalised plan to help you reach a body weight where the treatments will be most effective.

What’s the difference between fat freezing (cryolipolysis) and fat cavitation?

Fat Freezing uses a controlled cooling technique to kill fat cells. 20-30% of fat cells in the treated areas naturally eliminate from the body over a period of 12 weeks. It’s permanent and great for targeting stubborn pockets of fat.

Cavitation uses ultrasound technology to liquefy the fat cells. It’s immediate centimetre loss and works well on larger areas of the body (more than 3 cm of fat) rather than focusing on pockets of fat.

Which areas can be treated?

Cryolipolysis is effective at shifting pockets of fat from your stomach, inner and outer thighs, love handles, back fat, banana rolls, bra bulge, knees, arms and chin.

Cavitation works well on larger areas of the body such as the stomach, front and back of thighs.

Different treatments suit different bodies and your Body Catalyst therapist will conduct a review of your body and goals before suggesting which treatments will be the most effective.

How many treatments will I need?

The amount of fat you have to lose combined with your body goals dictates the number of treatments you’ll need. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to body sculpting. It’s as individual as we are, which is why we offer a complimentary consult upfront where a treatment plan will be outlined based on your objectives and body goals.

Where does the fat go?

The treatments trigger our body’s own natural elimination processes. Fat cells are transported through the lymphatic system to the liver where they processed out of the body as waste.

Why choose Body Catalyst?

Because we are the largest and most experienced body sculpting clinic in Australia. We consistently perform more fat freezing treatments per year than any other clinic. Also, all our therapists are qualified nutritionists because it is important to us to help people maintain their body goals, not just reach them.



Not all technology is created equal.

That's why at Body Catalyst, we use only the most advanced, medical grade technology. At your initial complimentary consultation, our Body Experts will be able to advise which treatment or combination of treatments will help you achieve the best results.
