Reduce and sculpt unwanted fat effectively and safely with the non-surgical Cristal ‘fat freezing’ treatment. This non-invasive procedure uses medical standard cryolipolysis, a technology based on the fact that fat cells are very sensitive to cold temperatures. This means that, at a certain temperature, fat cells die and the body gradually and naturally gets rid of them, enabling us to target areas of stubborn fat that no matter what else you do, will not go away.
Many areas can be treated with Cristal including:
• Love handles
During the procedure, the Cristal technology vacuums the undesired fatty area and cools it sufficiently to kill the fat cells, but without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The fat cells that have been treated are permanently removed from your body. However, it is important to note that this treatment does not stop the fat cells that remain from becoming larger if you do not follow a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
It’s important to note that results will not be seen immediately. The treated fat cells are gradually eliminated by the body over the coming weeks; most patients see results from six to ten weeks post-procedure – however some start to see changes earlier, whilst others may be a little slower to respond.
There is no downtime following the Cristal procedure because it is a non-invasive treatment. Most patients carry on with their usual daily activities immediately after their session. The discomfort level of this treatment is usually found to be low to mild.
Cristal is designed to be a single treatment, nevertheless, some of our patients decide to have additional treatments if they wish to boost their results even further. A session of Cristal takes 1 hour per area.

Disclaimer: Results from fat reduction treatments may vary from person to person because each individual responds differently to treatments.

“I’m excited to see the results of today’s procedure in the coming weeks. Cannot recommend highly enough! Thanks and see you on Friday for additional areas!” Deborah
“As always I was treated extremely well. Although a little anxious before my treatment, I was well looked after and made comfortable – nothing was too much trouble. Look forward to seeing them again for my aftercare and next treatment.” Donna
“Have visited a couple of times for Cristal fat freezing and have been very well looked after. Everyone is so friendly and professional and have regularly checked in on me, including a follow-up phone call the following day. I can’t wait to see the results! I shall definitely be returning to The Skin to Love for different treatments.” Tara
