FAQ on CryoDefine

When will I see results and are they permanent?

The body’s natural rhythm can take 6-12 weeks to eliminate the broken-down fat cells. Progressive results will be seen 20-90 days post-treatment.

Once the fat cells are destroyed they cannot return. Each treatment destroys 20-25% of fat cells so additional treatments may be required.

Can I return to normal activities after treatment?

Yes! The CryoDefine walk-in, walk-out procedure is non-surgical. Typically, you can return to normal activities immediately. Any redness, minor bruising, tingling or numbness in the treatment area is temporary and will be resolved completely.

How long does treatment take?

A complimentary 15-minute consultation is required. Treatment takes 45-60 minutes per session (each session can treat two areas simultaneously.)

Are results guaranteed?

Each individual will respond to the treatment differently, and therefore no clinic should or can claim to offer a 100% success rate in non-surgical fat-reduction. Many clients see results after just one treatment, however your treatment plan may include more than one session. For best results, two to three treatments are recommended for each target area. Your technician will work with you to tailor a plan to your needs and optimise results where possible.

Where does the fat go?

It’s an age-old question: how does the body eliminate fat? With CryoDefine, the treated fat cells are crystalised during treatment and then die off, naturally being processed and removed by the body’s lymphatic system.

Does it hurt?

CryoDefine fat freezing is a comfortable treatment and you may wish to bring a book or magazine to read during your treatment! 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.

What areas can be treated?

Unlike other fat-freezing machines, CryoDefine is unique with it’s dual-paddle action system, allowing two body areas to be treated at once. There are seven major treatment areas including the abdomen, flanks, love handles (hips), bra-bulges, back fat, inner and outer thighs and buttocks.

Am I eligible for CryoDefine Treatments? 

If you are pregnant, or suffer from cryoglobulinemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, you are not eligible to receive CryoDefine treatments.

It should be noted that CryoDefine should not be used as a weight-loss solution, and is not a treatment for obesity.
