Fat Freezing Cryolipolysis treatment in Reading | Hilton Skin Clinics

Fat Freezing Cryolipolysis


When losing fat, it’s literally impossible to choose where you lose it from. So, if you’re going on a health-kick to specifically lose excess fat from your arms, there’s no guarantee it will happen.

But, one way to get rid of specific, targeted areas of fat is through cryolipolysis – a pioneering ‘fat freezing’ treatment that’s able to provide dramatic fat loss without using scalpels or needles.

Cryolipolysis is the medical term for the destruction of fat cells. Here at Hilton Skin Clinics, we use a process called Cooltech Cryolipolysis fat freezing, successfully utilising fat cells’ susceptibility to cold temperatures when compared to the skin. This means that freezing temperatures are able to destroy fat cells without impacting the outer layer of skin.

During this process, fat cells rupture. This causes their contents to be released into the body, where they’ll be ‘flushed out’. This reduces visible fat underneath the surface of the skin, creating a slimmer, more toned appearance.

Cryolipolysis can be used anywhere on the body and is suitable for all skin tones.

During treatment, the Cooltech applicator will be positioned to the treatment area. A vacuum will then be applied to ‘suck up’ the skin, causing a somewhat pulling sensation.

The temperature is then gradually lowered until it reaches around -7°, and fat cells will begin to freeze. Treatment generally takes 70 minutes and is unlikely to cause discomfort. So, during this procedure, clients are able to relax with ease.

Once the procedure has been done, the treatment area is likely to feel hot and may appear slightly swollen or bruised. The practitioner massage the area to reduce swelling, redness should disappear within a mere few hours, and bruising may take a few weeks to disappear entirely. You may also experience slight numbness from anywhere between 1 – 8 weeks.



Cryolipolysis requires no down-time, meaning you can still return to your regular activities immediately after treatment.

It’s important to note that this procedure can only reduce fat cells in stubborn areas; it can’t remove large areas of fat. One session of treatment typically results in a 20% decrease of fat in the treated area, although this may differ from client to client. Many achieve their desired outcome after just one session, although some may require up to three.

Results are permanent, provided a healthy lifestyle is maintained afterwards in order to maintain weight.
