At Body Catalyst, we combine a holistic approach with science-backed technology to help shift stubborn fat pockets for good.

What is fat freezing?

Cryolipolysis fat freezing is a breakthrough, non-invasive treatment that uses controlled cooling technology to permanently kill up to 30% of fat cells within each treatment, without the need for invasive surgery or post-treatment downtime.

It is one of the most effective non-surgical ways to permanently remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Over the past few years, Fat-freezing has become a mainstream option to reduce stubborn fat pockets. Due to advances in the technology used, the treatment is now a more affordable and viable option for many, to remove stubborn fat from parts of your body that often refuse to budge.

How does 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 -9C.
  • 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 treated areas!

What are the Benefits of Fat Freezing?

Time and time again fat freezing has proven to be one of the best option of removing stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise and one of the main benefits of fat freezing is that the treatments are completely non-invasive and requires no downtime, there is no risk of infection and is a time-efficient procedure.

We use Clatuu 360 technology with dual handpieces, meaning that multiple pockets of fat can be targeted in a single 45-60 minute session.

How can I best prepare for my treatment?

In order to achieve optimum and long-lasting results, there are a number of factors to consider, and things you can do both before and after the treatment. Avoiding both alcohol and caffeine prior to the treatment is key to a successful procedure – we recommend abstaining from alcohol for at least 24 hours before your treatment, and caffeine for a minimum of 2 hours, both pre and post-procedure. It’s also recommended that you up your water intake to two liters, to ensure you’re flushing out your lymphatic system.

Make Your Treatment Day Comfortable

To ensure the day of the procedure goes without any drawbacks, allow ample time to get to the location of the treatment, and wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothes. We recommend eating a light meal beforehand and many clients like to bring some form of entertainment – such as a book, magazine, iPad or laptop to help pass the time while having the treatment done. We also have TVs in each treatment room for you to watch your favorite movies and TV shows, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy your treatment.

Frequently asked questions

Does fat freezing work?

Yes. The treatment is scientifically proven to permanently eliminate up to 30% of fat cells with each treatment in targeted areas. Find out more on our clinical studies page.

What happens at a consultation?

At Body Catalyst, we offer free complimentary consultations, our qualified therapists will take you through all our treatments, which ones are best suited for your body and body goals, outline any risks involved, and get you started on your body transformation journey.

Where does the fat go?

Once crystallized, the fat cells slowly break down and are transported through the lymphatic system to the liver where they are processed out of the body as waste.

Is fat freezing permanent?

Once the treated fat cells are gone, they are gone for good. As long as you maintain a normal diet and exercise, your long-term results should remain stable.

Is fat freezing safe?

Yes. The 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.

When will I start to see results?

Results can start to show as quickly as 6 weeks, with optimal results being seen at the 12th-week mark. In your consultation at Body Catalyst, your therapist will discuss your individual goals and expectations, as well as offering a realistic guide to the results you can expect from your treatment.

Does fat freezing hurt?

As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and cold. This soon dissipates as the area becomes numb. Many people read, watch videos, work on their laptops, or even take a nap during their treatment. Depending on your pain threshold, you may experience mild discomfort that will ease in the wake of the treatment. Numbness, a slight tingling sensation is not uncommon during the treatment, but the vast majority of patients report little or no pain.

Who is Fat Freezing suitable for?

Fat freezing is suitable for anyone, who wants an effective treatment to help remove pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise.

How long does each treatment take?

Each treatment takes 40 – 60 minutes, which means that it’s a perfect solution for anyone who is time-poor and wants to see noticeable results without having to invest ample amounts of time or money.

Can I return to normal activities after the treatment?

Yes, you can. The procedure is completely non-surgical, and most patients report that they are able to return to normal activities immediately after the procedure has taken place. As traditional surgery - such as tummy tucks - brings with it months of discomfort and disruption to life, fat-freezing is rapidly becoming a popular alternative to the likes of liposuction.

When should you start Fat Freezing?

When you should start fat freezing is of course up to you and your individual requirements, but as results can take at least four weeks to show – if you’re undergoing fat-freezing for a specific holiday or event – we recommend scheduling your session three months in advance, six at the most.

Are all fat freezing machines the same?

No. Not all machines are registered as safe and approved for consumer use on the ARTG. Clatuu is one of the most technologically advanced cryolipolysis systems available today, allowing for faster, more effective fat reduction as it has two applicators, 360° cooling applicators, an intense suction, and freezing that goes down to -9°. Clatuu is entered in the ARTG, #243432.

What are the risks to Fat Freezing?

There are no known risks to fat freezing, most people do not feel anything during the procedure, there is no downtime and you are able to resume activities as normal immediately after the procedure has finished. It is, however, normal to experience some side effects for up to 2 weeks post-treatment, these can include: Slight redness, Minor swelling, Tenderness, Bruising, Tingling, Numbness, Skin sensitivity, Mild discomfort.

How can I alleviate any discomfort during the treatment?

While most patients report no pain during fat-freezing treatments, it’s not uncommon to feel slight discomfort. Mild painkillers should be enough to alleviate any pain. Please ensure you discuss pain relief with your therapist prior to commencing the treatment so they can ensure advice that is tailored to you.

How can I enhance my results?

Embrace Healthy Habits. While fat freezing is designed to help eliminate stubborn fat, the best results will be achieved if you adopt a healthy diet and lifestyle alongside the fat freezing treatment. We suggest eliminating bad habits – such as smoking, too much alcohol and an excess of sugar, or unhealthy fats in your diet. Speak to your body and wellness therapist about how diet and exercise can help you achieve your body goals.
