QUESTIONS

How can we help?

Everything you need to know and more, so you can make the best decision for your body.

Does fat freezing really work?

Cryolipolysis has been scientifically proven to eliminate fat cells permanently, tighten skin and improve cellulite.

How many treatments do I need?

Although many clients will see results from the first treatment, we recommend a series of 6-10 treatments to achieve optimal results based on your desired outcome.

For fat freezing treatments on tummy or love handles, we see on average a reduction of between 2cm – 4cm achieved per treatment. 

With our medical grade devices, more than one area can be treated at the same time.

How long do the results last?

For skin tightening, the results can last up to 24 months, this varies from client to client.

For fat removal, results are permanent!

Unlike many other treatments, cryolipolysis removes the entire fat cell by means of a natural programmed cell death by essentially freezing it to death. With other methods, the fat cell is emptied, but the casing remains, which can then fill up again. This is not possible with our treatments because the fat cells are eliminated permanently.

That is, of course, no reason to let go of healthy food, the fat cells will still grow in other places in your body.  Healthy and balanced eating remains important!

Are the treatments painful?

All treatments are pain free, non invasive, no bruising and require no downtime.

Unlike other cryolipolysis treatments, we use a cooled hand piece which is moved manually over the required area of body.

It has been described as a cool gentle massage.

There is no vacuum device as is found on other machines, as these vacuum devices are often painful, result in numbness of the skin plus they limit the number of areas that can be treated.

How long does each treatment take?

A treatment takes between 20-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

How often can I have treatments?

Fat Removal – Takes about 14 days before all the dead fat cells are eliminated from the body, so we recommend 2 weeks between treatments on the same area.

Skin Tightening – This can be done as often as you like. 

Are the treatments safe?

The devices we use at Body Sculpt GC are TGA approved and are safe with no side effects. The area being treated may be a little red after the treatment (this usually subsides within 1/2 hour). There is no downtime and no pain, you can return to normal activity immediately after the treatment.

Other devices that use suction, vacuum or heat methods can be painful. These machines usually leave marks, can produce uneven results and have very limited treatment area options.

Who are the best candidates for fat freezing/skin tightening treatments?

Anyone can benefit from a treatment, depending on their desired outcome.

However, fat freezing is not a weight loss treatment and does not replace the benefits of a healthy balanced diet and exercise.  It does not treat obesity.

Ideally, the candidate should be within 10-15kg of their ideal weight range.

Body Sculpt GC fat reduction treatments are designed for adults who are unable to get rid of those stubborn areas of fat where diet and exercise have been unsuccessful.

How long does a treatment take for Injury Recovery/Pain Management?

Initially, a consultation will take place and then a treatment.

A treatment takes between 10-15 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

Most clients have found that there is an immediate improvement after the first treatment without the need of further pain relieving medications between treatments.

How many treatments do I need for my pain?

Chronic Pain (more than 3 months) – Depending on the injury, it is recommended to have 2-3 treatments per week for a period of 5 weeks, then further reassessment will be required.

Acute Pain (less than 3 months) – Depending on the injury, initially 1-2 treatments per week.
