(+971) 800 032 0352 The Science Research
Cryolipolysis, also known as Fat Freezing, is a safe and non-invasive method of fat reduction. The treatment relies on the scientific principle that fat cells cannot survive at sub-zero temperatures. Subsequently, when the target area is exposed to cold temperatures, the fat cells break down. Following the treatment, the body gradually removes the fat cells through the lymphatic system. Research shows that one session of Cryolipolysis can reduce fat in the target area by up to 20%.
Cryolipolysis is available at all of our locations. We also offer 360 Cryolipolysis at limited locations.

What happens during Cryolipolysis?
Before you begin the treatment, your therapist will place an Anti-Freeze Membrane onto the target area. We do this for safety reasons, as it stops the skin from coming into direct contact with the applicator and prevents side effects such as burns and blisters. After the Anti-Freeze Membrane has been applied to the target area, the applicator is placed on top. Vacuum suction is used to pull the target area up into the applicator, where the cooling plates freeze the area to approximately -7 degrees Celsius.
Your therapist will check the area every 15 minutes and replace the Anti-Freeze Membrane if necessary.

Is Cryolipolysis painful?
Generally, Cryolipolysis is not a painful treatment. However, you may feel discomfort when the area is pulled up into the applicator. Please note that this will vary depending on the sensitivity of your skin.
What areas can be treated?
Cryolipolysis can be used to treat areas such as the upper and lower abdomen, love handles, arms, legs and back.
“Great Experience. Has been 2 weeks in and have seen a noticeable change. Stubborn stomach fat has actually reduced!”
“...now after two and the half weeks I can see the results and I am feeling really happy about it “
"[I saw] a noticeable reduction in fat in the areas that I had treated..." "...I’m now in much better shape."
"100% recommend the clinic to anyone - very professional but also very welcoming. Thank you to all the team :o)"
"I had [an] amazing experience at VIVŌ clinic [I] had the fat freezing treatment..." "...Week by week I could see the loss in fat in my arms "
How long does the treatment take?
This will depend on how many areas you are having treated in one session. If you are having one or two areas treated, the treatment will last roughly 1 hour, including a 30-minute consultation.
When can I see results?
You should notice visible results around 4 to 12 weeks after the procedure. Please note that results will vary from person to person and will depend on how many sessions you undergo. Furthermore, if you follow the aftercare instructions as given to you by your therapist, this can help you to see better results.
How long do the results last?
Results are long lasting. It is important to remember that results can last longer if you have a healthy and active lifestyle.
Is there any downtime?
No. Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment, and as a result of this, there is no downtime needed after the procedure, so you are free to resume your daily activities.
What are the side effects?
It is common to experience redness, numbness and bruising after Cryolipolysis. These side effects can last up to 7 days.
Is Cryolipolysis a weight loss treatment?
Fat Freezing is not a weight loss treatment. Cryolipolysis is ideal for targeting stubborn fat that is hard to get rid of through a healthy diet and lifestyle. Furthermore, research has shown that while Cryolipolysis can significantly reduce fat, it does not tend to affect a person’s weight.
Can the fat cells return once they have left the body?
No. Once the body has gotten rid of the broken-down fat cells, they cannot return. However, your remaining fat cells can grow, so you should make sure that you exercise regularly and maintain a nutritious diet.
What is 360 Cryolipolysis?
The difference between regular Cryolipolysis and 360 Cryolipolysis is the applicator that is used. The regular Cryolipolysis applicator has a rectangular shape, and two cooling plates which freeze the target area on two sides. While this is effective, the 360 Applicator is dome shaped, and freezes fat cells from all angles. Therefore, with 360 Cryolipolysis, you can target more fat cells in fewer sessions.
At which locations can I have Cryolipolysis?
We offer Cryolipolysis at all of our clinics. We also offer 360 Cryolipolysis in Birmingham, London and Leamington Spa, which targets a greater amount of fat cells.
Do I need to do anything after the treatment?
We advise that you only eat a light meal following your Cryolipolysis procedure. You should aim to drink around 2 to 3 litres of water a day. This stimulates the flow of the lymphatic system and helps to flush out the broken-down fat cells. Furthermore, you should apply HD Thermal Sculpt Cream at least once a day, preferably after a shower.
