Cryolipolysis, also known as "fat freezing", is a nonsurgical technique for localised fat reduction which involves the cooling of body fat to break down fat cells. This treatment is ideal for the abdomen, love handles and the back. Unlike alternative fat reduction methods, there are no long-term side effects to cryolipolysis and pain medication is not needed. There are very few risks that come with this treatment:
- Redness in the treated area lasting no more than a few hours
- Localised bruising that usually clears within a few hours.
