The process can be used on most people but it is not appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. People who take blood-thinning medication ought to consult a medical professional before having a treatment.
It is recommended that you follow a healthy lifestyle in order to maximise results and help the “flushing” process. Ideally it is suggested that you drink a litre of iced water daily upon waking and increase water intake. Lymphatic massage will help the process and regular body brushing stimulates the lymphatic system. An exercise programme of as little as one hour a week will help, not only the fat removal, but also to improve your general wellbeing.
Clinical studies have shown that between 20% and 40% of fat cells can be eliminated from an area depending on the individual, the level of the fat being treated and lifestyle post-session. During consultation, you will be advised ways to help increase the loss and speed of elimination.
For many people, a single session is sufficient to treat a specific area, depending on the amount of fat and the desired result. As the “flushing” of the dead cells takes time, if you wish a second treatment it is recommended that you leave a period of at least one month. As the destroyed fat cells are eliminated from the body naturally the result is permanent, so long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Once “killed” the fat cells no longer have a purpose and they are removed from the body using the lymphatic and immune systems. The body’s own natural detoxing process flushes away the fat. This process can take a matter of weeks which is why results are achieved over time and not instantly.
As the treated area has been subjected to freezing there is localised numbness during and immediately after a session. As this subsides there may be some swelling, possible tenderness and redness of the skin. Uncommon but possible effects include temporary abdominal cramps, bloating, bruising, nausea and dizziness. However, most clients experience no discomfort and resume normal activities immediately after a treatment.
The process will be explained and you can ask any questions you wish. Before the treatment begins you will be made comfortable and a cool membrane will be placed on the body area to be treated, followed by the handpiece, consisting of both vacuum suction and cooling plates, being positioned on the area. This is first warmed to separate blood from fat cells then it is chilled. Clients describe the feeling as pins-and-needles then a slight numbness. The process is often relaxing and many people read or fall asleep during a session.
