Fat Freezing 冷冻溶脂

Studies have shown that 20-30% of fat reduction can be seen with a single treatment session.

When fat cells are exposed to cold temperature at -9 °C, they will be forced into programmed cell death (apoptosis) and then being removed from the body over 2-3 months. 

liposuction vs fat Freezing

Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that removes fat by using a suction tube inserted into the fat pocket of specific body areas, performed under general anaesthesia or sedation. The recovery time is 6-8 weeks and patient requires to wear a compressive garment for 3 months to ensure smooth skin surface.

Fat freezing, on the other hand, is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment with minimal downtime. It targets only the subcutaneous fat layer without damaging the surrounding tissues.

Clatuu Alpha

Clatuu Alpha, equipped with advanced 360° Surrounding Cooling Technology, is one of the latest generation cryolipolysis/fat freeze machines for body contouring and fat reduction. It comes with two applicator handpieces, which allows patient to treat both left and right side of the body simultaneously (superior than older generation of machines with single handpiece). Moreover, traditional handpiece has a smaller contact surface compared to Clatuu Alpha’s handpiece with a wider cooling contact surface to cover larger area. 

In other words, Clatuu Alpha is more time and cost effective.

How it works:

Handpiece is applied onto the treatment area with suction force applied. Fat pocket will be sucked into the handpiece and cooling process begins.

Freezing fat cells to -9 degree Celcius for 1 hour induces apoptosis (programmed cell death). These fat cells that undergo programmed cell death will be removed by the body’s metabolism over 2-3 months.

Remaining fats in the targeted area will become leaner and less dense.

To achieve better results, it can combine with other heat-based devices, such as EnCurve and Vela Shape III . This combination of cold and heat technology (“Ice & Fire” treatment) provides a more effective fat reduction.


It is a wonderful choice for those who have been struggling with stubborn fat that doesn’t go away with exercises and diet regimens.

20-30% fat reduction can be achieved in one session. However, patient who desire more result can repeat the procedure on the same area after 1 month. Exercise, healthy lifestyle and diet control are important for high success rate.

Fat freeze targets localised fat pockets at specific areas to make them leaner rather than general weight loss. Other machines such as EnCurve and Redustim would be more suitable for general fat reduction.

You may experience pinching sensation for the first 2-3 minutes, after which the sensation disappears when the skin is adapted to the suction and cooling. There will be no pain for the rest of the procedure.

You can resume daily activities or exercise immediately right after the treatment. Temporary redness or soreness are possible side effects, which will subside over 2-3 days and will not impact your daily routine.
