Cryolipolysis/Cavitation & Radio Frequency
Fat Reduction in just 1 treatment
Introducing the latest Fat reduction treatment Cryolipolysis
Cryolipolysis is the first fat reducing treatment we have introduced into our Spa. In the past we have not come across any treatments that actually reduce the fat where results can be visibly seen and felt. But this actually works.
By far the most effective non invasive treatment to reduce stubborn fat from the buttocks, thighs and abdomen area.
How does the Cryolipolysis work on the fat cells?
It destroys the fat cells by using a controlled cooling system that is non invasive and very safe. This exposure causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without damage to the skin.
After a few weeks the body’s immune system commences removal of the dead fat cells from the treated area. These generally are via the liver along with the breakdown of the body’s other toxins that it is disposing of. You will not usually see a result instantly, results will start to show within a 6-8 week time frame as we have to allow the body to remove the dead frozen fat cells. Skin will appear smoother and you will find that clothes will feel looser fitting.
Areas to be treated:
- Upper or Lower Abdomen
- Hips. Flanks/Love Handles
- Upper Arms
- Inner/Outer thigh
Cavitation, Radio Frequency or Both?
Cavitation: Cavitation is the use of ultrasound to disrupt and cause the fat cells to breakdown and emulsify. When this happens the bodies natural disposal system kicks in and removes the broken down emulsified fats cells naturally.
Radio frequency: This procedure involves the use of an RF energy device to heat up and stimulate collagen production, which improves skin tone and elasticity in the skin. The radio frequency energy heats the skin without damaging it. The treatment is very safe and has no downtime.
Choose any combination:
Cavitation on it’s own 20-30mins(depending on area)
Radio Frequency on it’s own 15-25mins(depending on area)
Cavitation and Radio frequency 35-50mins(depending on area)
Frequently asked questions about Cryolipolysis
These are some of the most common questions asked when considering Cryolipolysis.
If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
What is it?
Cryolipolysis is a scientifically proven method for localised fat reduction. The technology behind Cryolipolysis, was designed and developed by dermatologists at Harvard Medical School. Their analysis revealed that fat cells are more responsive to the cold than the surrounding tissue. Freezing temperatures is specific in breaking down the fat cells whilst preserving the skin, muscles and nerves.
Does it work?
YES – There are numerous clinical trials, celebrity reviews, and before & after photos which support the effectiveness of fat freezing. It is widely known as one of the most effective fat loss treatments, with losses between 20-40% in a single session.
How does it work?
A special vacuum suction cup/handpiece with cooling plates is positioned on the selected body area. The area is then chilled – fat cells are especially sensitive to cold exposure. When cooled fat cells crystallise, they can no longer function in their usual way.
Why Choose Prana Spa?
Cryolipolysis is our signature treatment. Our therapists Leena and Lucy are both trainers who carry out training courses in our Prana Academy.
We have invested in the most advanced machine that also has the capability to do fat freezing, cavitation and radio frequency to deliver unsurpassed results.
Do I need a consultation?
Yes, we need to check your medical history and visually scan the area to determine your suitability for the treatment, and recommend the best option for you.
What happens to the fat cells that have been treated?
Fat cells die and are flushed out of the body by the lymphatic system, reducing the fat from the treated area and making it look slimmer and toned.
How long is a session?
Each area is 45-60 minutes per area, depending on the amount of fat in the area, only maximum of 2 areas are carried out in 1 session.
How many sessions do I need ?
Only 1 session is sufficient for most people on each area, those with a large amount of fat in the area may require 2 sessions. If you require another session in the same area, waiting time between sessions is 30-45 days. This is to give enough time to measure the effectiveness of the initial treatment.
What will the result be?
Clinical studies on Cryolipolysis have shown reduction of fat is between 20% to 40%. Results usually vary on the individual, and is dependant on the amount fat, in each area, and the lifestyle maintained afterwards. Those who follow the aftercare advice are guaranteed to achieve the best long term result.
When will I see results?
This depends on the individual, the fat thickness, and the area treated. Changes happen over a number of weeks, 12 weeks being the estimated time to see the maximum result, although some of our clients have seen remarkable results in just 2 weeks, although in clinical trials 9 out of 10 people saw an undeniable reduction in 12 weeks after treatment.
What will I feel during the session?
The treatment is completely pain free and comfortable using our particular technology. The handpiece feels cold and you may feel as if the skin is being pinched, but not painful.
What will I feel after the session?
Cryolipolysis generally has few side effects. The area may feel tight, and have erythema for a short while, if the skin is sensitive the area may bruise or have a skin burn form the cold, this is rare but possible.
Are the results permanent?
YES – It is permanent. Once destroyed the same fat cells cannot grow back.
Who is the ideal candidate for Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis is great for those areas that exercise and diet cannot does not work on., such as abdomen, flanks, lower back, hips, thighs, upper arms etc.
We do not recommend this treatment for overweight people as it does not offer weight loss solution., it can also be an excellent motivation for those embarking on a change in lifestyle.
