fat freezing near me

Cristal Fat Freezing

Reduce, sculpt and remove stubborn fat effectively and safely with the Cristal ‘fat freezing’ treatment. This non-invasive procedure uses medical standard cryolipolysis, a technology based on the evidence that fat cells are removed from the body when directly exposed to cold temperatures.

 

Want To Take The Next Step?

During the procedure the Cristal technology gently vacuums the targeted fatty area and considerably cools it, without damaging the surrounding tissue, to bring about the death of the desired fat cells.

The results of Cristal are permanent; the fat cells that have been treated are permanently removed from your body. We strongly recommend that you are at a steady weight and are following a healthy, balanced diet and exercise regime to complement your Cristal treatment. Results cannot be seen immediately; the treated fat cells are gradually eliminated by the body over the coming weeks following treatment.

Most patients see results from four to ten weeks post-procedure, however, some start to see changes before this time, whilst others may be a little slower to respond. This is designed to be a single treatment, nevertheless, some patients decide to have additional treatments if they wish to boost their results even further. Each session of Cristal takes 1 hour per area.

Many Areas Can Be Treated With the Cristal Treatment, Including:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Knees
  • Legs
  • Love handles
  • Saddlebags

 

Are There Any Side Effects to the Cristal Treatment?

Medical cryo lipolysis, or fat-freezing, has a good safety profile. Consultations are an important part of the fat-freezing treatment process in allowing you to understand the fat-freeze treatment and to establish if the benefits of the treatment are outweighed by any possible side effects. During a consultation, your characteristics, such as your medical background, the amount of unwanted fat and desired treatment area, will be assessed. Your medical practitioner will be able to discuss whether this treatment is appropriate for you, as well as any suitable alternative treatments.

Your practitioner will discuss any possible side effects, questions you may have and any aftercare you should adhere to before you have treatment.

How Does the Cristal Treatment Feel?

The discomfort level of this fat-freezing treatment is usually mild; during the procedure, you may feel a tugging or aching sensation which patients find tolerable. Many patients find that this type of sensation reduces after about 10 minutes into the treatment. Immediately following the treatment, some patients experience a temporary aching sensation which is usually quick to pass.

How Will the Treated Area Look After the Cristal Treatment?

Redness, mild swelling and bruising in the treatment area can occur post-procedure. These effects naturally reduce within a few days, often hours following the treatment. However, bruising will last for as long as a bruise usually lasts for an individual. We recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing around the treated zone immediately after your session to improve your comfort further.

When Will I See My Results From the Cristal Treatment?

As with all treatments, results and how quickly you see them differ between each individual as we are all unique. In our experience, most patients see results between 4 and 10 weeks.

What Happens to the Excess Fat Cells After Being Treated With Cristal?

Your body gradually and naturally gets rid of the treated fat cells safely by your forager cells which consume the treated fat cells and naturally eliminate them. Rigorous clinical testing demonstrates that there is no impact on liver function and fat will not migrate to other areas.

Will I Lose Weight After the Cristal Treatment?

This is not designed to be a weight-loss treatment. Fat freezing is designed to sculpt and remove stubborn pockets of fat to give you a more streamlined, svelte-looking figure.

During weight loss, the number of fat cells remains the same, but they shrink in size. Cryolipolysis permanently removes some of your fat cells in the treated area.

How Many Sessions of Cristal Will I Need?

Cristal fat freezing is designed to be a single-session treatment for those who are close to their ideal weight and who have stubborn pockets of fat they wish to remove.

Some of our patients opt to have repeat treatments in the same area if they are not quite at their ideal weight or if they simply want to boost their results further. You can discuss this fully with your practitioner and make a fat-freezing procedure plan during your consultation.

What’s the Difference Between the Cool Sculpt Treatment and the Cristal Treatment?

Both the Cristal and the Cool Sculpt treatments use cryolipolysis technology. The Cristal allows us to use two applicators at one time from the same machine, at the time of publishing this information the Cool Sculpt device currently has one; some practices may have more than one Cool Sculpt machine allowing them to treat two areas at once, however, using double the amount of machinery may have a cost implication.

What Happens if I Put on Weight After My Fat-Freezing Treatment?

If you gain weight after you’ve been treated any remaining fat cells in the treated area, and generally throughout your body, may swell and increase in size. We always recommend that if you are considering this treatment you should make sure that you are at a stable weight and follow a healthy lifestyle.

How Do I Find Fat Freezing Near Me?

Perhaps you’re looking for fat-freezing Hertfordshire, Emsculpt Neo, Desobody, or simply body contouring to get a flavour of what’s available to you, then reading this may make up part of your research: mega important step.

Part of this research should also be having a consultation with some clinics that offer non-surgical fat removal near you, who specialise in this treatment; as I’ve mentioned throughout, this will enable you to better understand treatments and allow professionals to match you with appropriate body fat removal treatments. It also allows you to ask specific questions and get a feel for the practice.

Non-surgical fat removal is not currently regulated, so you may like to use registers such as the CQC or Save Face to shortlist clinics; these registers put practitioners and clinics through rigorous assessments (and I mean rigorous) to ensure they are who they say they are, are qualified and insured, are using legitimate products and devices from trusted sources, and adhere to strict safety and hygiene protocols.

We know, we elected to be on both registers.

So, if you’re looking for non-surgical fat removal in St. Albans, Harpenden, Watford, or any of the areas within Hertfordshire, as well as areas close by including London and Essex you may like to book a consultation at our clinic to discuss your needs and how our expertise and suite of non-surgical fat reduction treatments may be a good fit for you.

We’re very accessible with close links to the M25 and are a short 20-minute train ride from St. Pancras station.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Cristal isn’t technically fat ‘melting’, it’s ‘fat freezing’ but it’s good to know about all of our non-surgical treatments that help you lose stubborn fat. This treatment is extremely popular, particularly as we can treat larger pockets of stubborn fat with it.

Cristal fat freezing works by… you probably guessed… freezing the fat with a technology called ‘medical standard cryo lipolysis, is a safe and painless procedure. It brings about the death of the treated fat cells, permanently removing them from your body in the same way that Liposonix and Emsculpt Neo do through your lymphatic system.

Cristal fat freezing, much like Liposonix fat melting, is designed to be a single treatment, but again you can have more than one treatment session if required and appropriate.

I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too. This clinic is quite far from me but I am willing to travel for such a good service. Would recommend to everyone you’ll be really happy
