What is it and what is the cause?
Sometimes, no matter how much we go to the gym there is a stubborn pocket of fat that simply will not go away. For others, there is an area of fat that has always bothered you (e.g. inner thighs) that simply don’t go away.
Cryotherapy (fat freezing) has become hugely popular to deal with exactly this kind of problem. Fat freezes at a lower temperature than skin so a fat freezing session destroys just fat cells (around 30% of then) permanently in a single session. This doesn’t mean you can’t create new fat cells if you over indulge! This treatment is a one off treatment ideal for loose pockets of fat that you can pinch such as love handles, bra overhang, baby belly, double chin, bingo wings etc. It takes around 8-12 weeks for this fat to disappear through your lymphatic drainage system and a bit of vigorous exercise can help eliminate that waste quicker. The Fat freeze costs £200 for one area e.g. lower tummy and £300 for a double sided area e.g. arms or thighs.
If fat deposits are quite solid e.g. on the hips then Cavitation is the alternative solution. It uses ultrasound to literally “pop” fat cells over a course of 8 sessions where centimeters are lost in each session (this varies between people). Cost from £75 per session.
