At IHB, we are constantly looking for the latest technology and innovative treatments for body contouring and we are happy to introduce Fat Freezing to our portfolio of treatments.
Fat freezing (Cryolipolysis, Cool Sculpting) is a non-invasive, painless procedure that gently and effectively removes fat from targeted areas of the body that have not responded to traditional diet and exercise alone. You can benefit from noticeable yet natural-looking results in those problem areas, providing an overall smoother body contour. Fat freezing is most effective in removing fat from the tummy, love handles, arms, thighs and back.
The results of the treatment are achieved by using applicator cups which cools the targeted tissue to break down the fat cells for easy removal, without any harm to the surrounding tissue. Fat cells have been proven to be more vulnerable to cold than the surrounding tissue. This stimulates a natural fat removal process that continues for several months after the procedure. We use the very latest in technology

How Soon Will I See Results? It takes a little while for full results to show as the fat cells need time to be naturally processed from your body 1. You may start to see results as as early as four to six weeks after your treatment with progressive improvement up to 14 to 16 weeks. This is because the body continues to flush out the fat cells for up to three to six months after being treated. During your Fat Freeze consultation at our Midrand clinic, we can discuss a tailored treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.
Am I A Candidate Of Fat Freeze? Whilst Fat Freeze is not a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise, if you have stubborn areas of fat in places such as the chin, upper arms, flanks, abdomen and thighs, you are likely to be a good candidate for this treatment. During your consultation, your practitioner will discuss everything in detail, looking at your whole body and at your specific areas of concern, making a full assessment and recommendations for treatment.
Can Men Have Fat Freeze Treatment? Fat Freeze is ideal for men and women. We provide a discreet service for all our patients, with a holistic approach to transforming your body for the sculpted shape you desire to look good from every angle.
How Many Treatment Do You Need For Fat Freezing? Fat Freezing we recommend 1-4 treatments depending on the client. Most clients see great results after the first treatment.
How Much Gap Is Required Between Fat Freezing Treatments? Individual treatment sessions in the same area should be scheduled from 4-6 weeks apart.
Why Wait 6-12 Weeks To See Results? After your Fat Freezing procedure, the body naturally disposes of the unwanted dead fat cells.
This takes time as your body is busy processing and breaking down the fat cells through a procedure called Apoptosis – through which enzymes break down the cells into smaller pieces to allow for your white blood cells (macrophages) to remove them from your body permanently and this is why your body needs the time to adjust and reline the fat cells and contour your shape.
How Long Is Each Session? How Many Sessions Will I Need? Treatment plans may vary from one person to the other. We will help you create a treatment plan customized to your specific goals. The length of treatment will depend on how many areas need to be treated during the same office visit. Your session can last for 35-60 minutes. Some patients may need to schedule additional sessions or office visits to achieve their goals.
What Results Can I Expect From Fat Freezing? An average of about 25% fat reduction is seen per treatment, and more than one treatment is recommended to see optimum results.
The final results are fully visible within 6-12 weeks, as the body uses this time to flush away the dead fat cells.
These results are permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Patient Results May Vary.
