Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat freezing, is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperature to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. The procedure is designed to reduce localized fat deposits or bulges that do not respond to diet and exercise.


The procedure destroys up to 20 - 25% of the fat cells in a spot. 


We are all born with a specific number of fat cells and they only get bigger or smaller.  At Beauty Zone our machine offers 30-40 minute treatments, depending on the area and the thickness of the fat. 

We can treat up to 2 spots at a time.


How are fat cells destroyed?

The technique is based on the finding that fat cells are more susceptible to damage from cold temperatures than other cells, such as skin cells. The cold temperature injures the fat cells. The injury triggers an inflammatory response by the body, which results in the death of the fat cells. 

Are there any people for whom cryolipolysis is not recommended?

Pregnancy or breast-feeding, Nerve disorders, such as diabetic neuropathy,

Inflammatory skin disorders and Skin conditions caused by immune system disorders, such as eczema or psoriasis

Cryolipolysis should not be performed on patients who are obese or significantly overweight as you will get uneven reduction in an area causing dents in the fat.  You must have lost all the weight before you do fat freezing.

Also, it should not be performed on areas of skin that are cut or injured, contain severe varicose veins, dermatitis, or other skin lesions.

People who have abnormal cold sensitivity or cold intolerance are not suitable candidates

Raynaud’s phenomenon. A rare condition in which cold temperatures can impede blood flow to the fingers and toes.

Cryoglobulinemia. A type of vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) caused by abnormal proteins that become solid or gel-like in the presence of cold temperatures. It is associated with blocked blood vessels and other problems.

Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria. A very rare autoimmune disease in which red blood cells are damaged during exposure to cold.

Cold urticaria. A rare condition in which the skin develops red, itchy spots (hives) after exposure to cold temperatures.

Cold agglutinin disease. A rare type of autoimmune hemolytic anemia in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys its own red blood cells. The condition is often triggered or made worse by cold temperatures.


What side effects are to be expected immediately after cryolipolysis?
Temporary side effects for the areas that are treated may include:

Pain or aches
Stinging or tingling of the skin
Skin discoloration or bruising
Skin sensitivity or numbness

If you have sensitive skin you may be more perceptible to a skin burn, which can lead to blistering.  This is generally in cases with people whose skin easily gets sunburnt & if you are very fair or light skinned, however any skin can be affected by a skin burn.  This is prevented by the fat freeze gel membrane which protects the skin during the freezing process.
Side effects may persist for a few days to a few weeks after treatment. Most clients show no symptoms by the time they leave their appointment. The skin is massaged after treatment to help it return to it's normal colour.

Some areas are more sensitive to treat e.g inner thighs & upper arms.  Your doctor may recommend that you take an analgesic medication to relieve pain or other discomfort if you are going to do the treatment in any of these areas.  However, this is only experienced in a very small amount of clients.

Results will vary and may not be representative of the experience of others.

We are not medical practitioners and therefore are not able to diagnose conditions or the effect of fat freezing on anyone with chronic illnesses.  Please consult your doctor before embarking on any treatments.

Whether genetic or environmental, it should be noted that food intake, rates of metabolism and levels of exercise and physical exertion vary from person to person.

The body is composed of many different types of fat and the percentage of these fats in the body will vary from person to person. This means fat loss results will also vary from person to person.  No individual result should be seen as typical.

This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent weight gain. 

The client understands that a healthy lifestyle, diet & excercise together with water intake improve the results of fat freezing. 

The information on this site is for educational purposes and is not guaranteed as correct. 

The  client understands that some skin types are more sensitive and susceptable to skin burn from the fat freezing.  This can result in blistering & sensitivity.  It is advised the client uses a good skin oil to assist recovery.

Arnica Oil for preventative bruising and for massaging the area, which is known to improve fat freezing results

Bio Oil is particularly famed for its ability to tackle scars, stretch marks, dry skin, uneven skin tone and other skin imperfections. You can also use it as an intensive body moisturiser, as the product is easily absorbed by the skin.

By embarking on this procedure you understand the risks involved and do not hold Beauty Zone or its owner responsible for any issues arising out of the treatment.


Please note that I will not do the treatment on any lady that I think it is not suitable for, however, I am going on information you are telling me.  So if you say you are eating healthy then I will believe you and continue with the process, except in cases where the pocket of fat is too big for the head.

FAT FREEZING (available for ladies as my operations have been downscaled since covid)

Currently there are 3 types of fat freezing machines on the market.  The difference between the three is the way the fat appears after freezing but results are exactly the same


Is this treatment for YOU?

✔️ Do you have small pockets of stubborn fat?

✔️ Do you feel like diet & exercise makes little difference to shift these areas?

✔️ Do you feel leading a healthy lifestyle worked for you, but things have started to slow down now that you are close to your goal weight?

✔️ Maybe it's your tummy, hips, or arms which is your problem area and you understand that it is not permanent but that the fat can come back on the spot as it only kills a tiny percentage of fat cells.  So that means you may have to do numerous treatments on a spot together with eating good food so as not to fill the remaining fat cells with fat.


If you answered YES to these questions, FAT FREEZING may help you.👍🙋‍♀

❗I have the MOST effective FAT LOSS treatment for you (that is clinically proven to kill up to 20-25% of fat cells) ❗

❄️It's called CRYOLIPOLYSIS (aka fat freezing)

During this treatment a membrane sheet is placed over the area to be treated (to protect the skin)
The cryo fat freeze cup is then applied,the fat is drawn into the cup, think of it like a mini vacuum suction. You may feel a slight pinch as it pulls the fat in but this quickly disappears as the freezing starts.
Its now time to sit back and relax whilst the cup is working its magic 💆‍♀️
You can even fit it in during your lunch break!


This Clinically PROVEN treatment works over a 4 - 12 week period.  Clients who follow a good eating plan and drink 2 litres of water a day may see 1-4 cm loss sooner.

Results are up to 8 cm loss and if you eat healthy food - even kg loss as well but it is not designed to sort out obesity or to lose weight..

                       Who the treatment is RECOMMENDED FOR-


  • The procedure is recommended only for people who are in good general health with no neurologic or orthopaedic problems and who are looking for “spot” fat reduction in specific areas on the body. Cryolipolysis is not recommended for people who are very overweight or obese.
  • There is a risk that the skin surface may be irregular/not smooth after healing if the area is too large for the fat freezing heads. This normally happens due to a client having fat freezing who is significantly overweight.  You should be within 5-6kg of your goal weight to do this treatment as it only works on small pockets of left-over fat.  Therefore it is important you are given the correct advice about whether to lose weight first before attempting fat freezing to sculpt the remaining pockets of fat. So you will end up having uneven fat and eventually the fat will come back as you are not eating correctly.  It may also not produce any results as the remaining fat cells take up the fat you are eating.
  • At Beauty Zone I will not do Fat Freezing on any client who is overweight as this is not a weight loss machine but a sculpturing machine and suitable for smaller pockets of fat that remain after weight loss or if you are on your weight - pockets you may gain and can't get rid of.
  • More than one session may be needed to achieve a person’s desired results.
  • If more than one treatment sessions is needed on exactly the same spot/area, the next session can’t be performed until about 4 weeks after the first session. This is because it can take this long for damaged fat cells to be eliminated from the body.
  • Results are not evident immediately. I suggest you GOOGLE FAT FREEZING  to see that no where in the WORLD do they say you will have immediate cm loss.  If your salon is giving you immediate cm loss then it is what it is - FAKE.  Since fat cells are removed gradually from the body, it can take 3 to 6 months to achieve optimal results. As fat cells die slowly it is not possible for you to have immediate cm loss.
  • The benefit of slow reduction in cm loss is that the skin will not sag and will gradually contract with the removal of the fat.  Any quick fat loss can cause excess, hanging skin.
  • Weight gain is also possible, after undergoing cryolipolysis, if you consume fatty foods and don't drink enough water to remove the fat cells from your body.  The weight gain will occur in other areas of the body as the fat cells expand to take up the fat normally taken up by the destroyed cells. 


Body Areas Treated
1. Women -  common areas for fat freezing: stomach (upper and lower belly), inner & outer thighs and upper arms (tuckshop arms). Close after this is bra roll, love handles, waist & saddlebags. We also treat the knees and back.



If you GOOGLE FAT FREEZING there is no proof or evidence that these treatments benefit fat freezing at all and most salons use it as a sales gimic to get you to pay more money for the treatment.  

GOOGLE ULTRASONIC CAVITATION and RADIO FREQUENCY and you will see they are only effective after numerous treatments so once off will have little effect and it is not permanent either.  If you are doing a lot of fat freezing on one spot over months then you could combine RF to tighten the skin but once-off will not justify the cost.

Most salons do cavitation after fat freezing which defeats the purpose of the machine because fat cells take weeks to die so why would you use a machine on a spot while trying to get fat out of cells that are dying?  It doesn't make them die faster.  


Ultrasonic Cavitation and Radio Frequency are for long term use and have never been proven to have any benefit on Fat Freezing.  The only benefit on Fat Freezing is how you eat and what you drink after the treatment.  These are not miracle machines to make you lose fat.






  1. The above chart was given to me in Dec 2020 by a client who was doing Fat Freezing at another Fat Freeze salon who specialises in the treatment.

  2. If you did  your research there should be NO RESULT at the first treatment.

  3. On her chart on 16 August  it is showing an immediate cm loss after Fat Freezing.  This is not possible.

  4. It takes 4 - 12 weeks to see results.  

  5. So 10 days later she has lost 10cm on the bottom of her tummy.  This type of loss could be seen if the person is on an extremely strict diet plus excercising and drinking 2 L of water daily, but these results are normally seen from 4 weeks to 12 weeks, but more in the region of between 4-10cm and only IF the person ate correctly and drank 2 L of water.

  6. I found her measurements to be the same as the first session (marked by yellow dots)

  7. The main reason I speak about this is that I want you to do your research on Fat Freezing and realise that this procedure is not killing every cell that it pulls up in a head, but only a % of these cells.  It is a contouring or sculpturing treatment and slowly destroys fat cells in the area of the head.

  8. Salon's show immediate cm loss so that you get caught up in the presumption that it works immediately,  you feel your money was well spent and you may go back and book more.  It makes you feel good to know you lost fat without much effort.

  9. The reason they also show a fat cm loss is that if you say  to them it doesn't work - then they will say but you lost cm in the salon - so it's your eating. 

  10. So measure yourself with a measuring tape before you go for the procedure and see what they do during the procedure.

  11. If a salon is not measuring you at all to check your results then ask yourself are they genuinely caring about your progress
