This procedure destroys the fat cells by freezing them (cryolipolysis). Then the fat is eliminated by the lymphatic system, this produces long-lasting results. It can be used to treat pockets of fat around the chin, chest, abdomen, and thighs.
Fat freezing can help remove those stubborn pockets of fat that won’t budge, no matter what you try. Fat freezing (Cryolipolysis or Coolsculpting) selectively targets thigh bulges, muffin tops, love handles, back fat (flanks) and any other pockets that stick out. It is a safe and non-invasive weight loss option and can be done in your lunch hour. There is no pain and no downtime.
At Avelar Aesthetics we use 360 technology to help you sculpt your body by targeting those stubborn pockets. During the fat freezing procedure, fat cells are frozen to the point of apoptosis (cell death). The body then processes them through the lymphatic system over the coming weeks.
You may need 1 to 4 treatments for your results be fully visible.
Areas that you can treat:

1 to 4 treatments
Immediate / 6 to 12 weeks
Permanent under the condition of maintaining a constant weight measurement (i.e. assuming you don’t gain weight).
Initially, you will feel suction from the vacuum as the fat is pulled upwards into the applicator head. The area will then start to feel cold as it is frozen to -5 degrees. You may experience stinging or tingling and as expected, some numbness. Most people soon get used to the sensation and read a magazine and relax during their weight loss treatment.
Once the fat freezing treatment is over and the applicator head has been removed, the area will be firmly massaged, and the skin will soon warm up to normal temperature, some people report some discomfort during this stage, that will assess and try to reduce this discomfort to a minimum.
Each person is different and will see their fat freezing (cryolipolysis) results at different times: it is completely dependent on your own body’s reaction time. Results can be seen from 3 weeks to 3-6 months.
Although Fat Freezing is a safe and non-invasive weight loss treatment, you may experience some side effects. These may include:
We cannot offer fat freezing if you have any of the following medical conditions:
Cryolipolyisis is not a treatment for obesity. Cryolipolysis works best on sculpting areas rather than the whole body, however, we are here to help you with your long-term weight loss goals. Best results are seen on clients with a BMI of 30 or below.
This therapy is non-invasive, unlikely traditional liposuction that removes the fat permanently from your body, this therapy breaks down the fat cells that need to be then removed by the lymphatic system. If you don't have a change on your diet/exercise, this therapy will not work as intended and you will not be satisfied with the results. For best results we recommend that you reduce your calory intake by reducing the amount of carbs/fat consumed for 3 to 5 days and do at least 30 minutes cardio (this can be done at home).
