Reshape your figure with Australian Skin Clinics own cryolipolysis service, CryoDefine®.
A non-invasive, fat freezing, fat-reduction technology, CryoDefine® is a unique non-surgical, no anaesthetic from of cryolipolysis, which provides a safer alternative to liposuction surgery.
CryoDefine® selectively cools fat cells, causing them to be destroyed. The body then naturally removes the fat cells through its normal elimination process.
The cooling energy is delivered to the subcutaneous fat layer without causing damage to surrounding tissue or structures.
Now you can finally eliminate stubborn fat that regular diet and exercise has been unable to move!
• Eliminates stubborn fat
• Reduces the appearance of cellulite
• Reshapes “problem” areas on the body
• No surgery, anesthesia or needles required
• No downtime
• Safe and effective
• Treat two areas at once with dual-paddle system
CryoDefine® fat freezing is a comfortable treatment and you may wish to bring a book or magazine to read during your treatment! Appointment time will vary from 45 to 60 minutes depending on the number of areas treated simultaneously
You will initially experience a burst of intense, localised coldness. This will subside within five to 15 minutes as the area becomes numb. Suction pressure caused by the vacuum applicators may result in pulling and/or pinching sensations and you may have a bruise in the area afterwards.
The CryoDefine® has two applicators or “paddles” which can be used simultaneously allowing the treatment of two areas at one time. The smart applicator generates a vacuum which is followed by controlled temperature cooling.
Towards the end of the treatment the applicator also provides stimulation to the area via inbuilt massage technology. This assists in lymphatic drainage to improve results. Once the cooling procedure is completed, fat cells are liberated into the lymphatic system and gradually eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic process. Subcutaneous fat is sensitive to the cold freeze treatment; however normal body tissues are unaffected.
Our experienced staff will assess your suitability for treatment during our complementary consultation and review any treatment contraindications. Clients must be over the age of 18 and looking to spot-reduce stubborn fat or sculpt previously troublesome areas on the body. Some clients may not be eligible for fat freezing treatments. Please review our FAQ’s to determine your eligibility
At your initial consultation, you’ll meet with one of our expert CryoDefine® technicians to discuss your treatment goals and any “problem” areas. Your technician will then assess your suitability for treatment and provide a professional recommendation on which areas should be treated and how many treatments you will require. Expectations, preparation and post-care will also be discussed.
Not Suitable if You Have Experienced the Following:
- Laser hair removal, IPL or waxing in the treatment area within the last week
- Sunburn in the treatment area
- Open wounds or grazing in the treatment area
- Dermatitis, eczema or rashes
- Recent surgery, scar tissue or stretch marks

Caution must be taken not to treat the abdomen during menstruation, and any areas of weak, thin or sagging skin should be discussed with your technician prior to treatment.
During the treatment
Your technician will begin by applying a gel pad and applicator to the target area, allowing our CryoDefine® technology to deliver controlled cooling to the specified area. Once treatment begins, you will experience an initial burst of intense, localised coldness. Suction pressure caused by the vacuum applicators may result in pulling and/or pinching sensations. These are all normal sensations and generally subside within five to 15 minutes as the area becomes numb.
It is important to follow the post-treatment care advice as prescribed by your technician. Stiffness, transient blanching (temporary skin lightening), bruising, swelling and tenderness can occur, and it is normal for the area to appear red for up to 48 hours post-treatment. As CryoDefine® is 100 per cent non-surgical, clients can typically return to their normal routine the same day.
Other sensations such as dulling, itching, tingling, numbness, soreness and tenderness have been reported in the weeks following treatment. Client experience will differ from person to person, and it is important to contact the clinic immediately if you experience any atypical or long-lasting symptoms or side effects.
Please note: CryoDefine® is designed for localised reduction of fat, and should not be used as a weight-loss solution. Available at select Australian Skin Clinics only.
