The safe alternative to Lipo, Cristal® Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment designed to select and eliminate fat cells through controlled cooling, without causing damage to the surrounding tissues. It uses technology based on the fact that fat cells are very sensitive to cold temperatures. At a certain temperature, fat cells begin to die and the body gradually and naturally eliminates them. After six-eight weeks, you will observe a significant and measurable reduction in fat mass.
Destroying the fat cells is a long-term solution provided you retain a stable weight, eat healthily and continue exercise as usual. Cryolipolysis leads to a permanent reduction of fatty tissue; once removed, fat cells will not reappear as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Cristal® Cryolipolysis can be carried out on the following areas:
- Stomach / Abdomen
- Love handles
- Flanks and waist
- Back / Bra-line

Fat Freeze Treatment FAQs
How Does It work?
Non-invasive cooling of fatty tissue induces the breaking down of fat cells (lipolysis). This is done by extracting thermal energy from the layer of fat under the skin, which gradually lowers the temperature in fat cells until it eventually freezes.
When fat cells become frozen they naturally die (apoptosis) and begin to break down and release their fatty acids. These broken down lipids then enter the lymphatic system and are removed from the body naturally resulting in a clear reduction in the amount of fat in the treatment area.
What Can I Expect In Treatment?
After an initial consultation with a Medical Aesthetician, a handheld suction cup lifts and holds the unwanted fat in place. This fat is cooled to -8°C, which is cold enough to kill the fat cells but does not damage any other tissues or cells. The treatment will last for approximately 60 minutes. The Medical Aesthetician will then massage the area and you will be able to continue with normal activities straight away.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Cristal® therapy is non-invasive, painless, and perfectly safe. This technique selects fat cells and does affect any other surrounding tissue, there are no incisions and stitches are not required.
It’s possible to experience light side effects such as redness, bruising, swelling, tender to touch and a feeling of numbness in the treated area. These effects naturally disappear within a few hours or in a few days. There is no downtime required and you can continue with your normal activities at the end of the treatment.
How Many Treatments Would I Need?
Results do vary from person to person but up to 30% reduction in fat deposits can be generally be seen after just one treatment, however between two and four sessions may be needed to achieve desired results.
What Results Can I Expect To See?
A reduction in fat in the targeted area can be noted from 6-8 weeks post-treatment. The speed at which noticeable results are seen will vary depending on the stability of the cell membranes; younger clients are more likely to see results after a longer period. In very small fat pads, the desired results can already be seen sooner.
Fat is permanently removed from your body, however it is important that you take regular care of your new body with a balanced diet and a regular physical activity.
