Fat Freezing 冷冻溶脂

Fat Freezing studies have shown that 20-25% 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 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 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. Since the surrounding tissue does not respond to the cold treatment the same way as fatty tissue, the treatment is considered safe, gentle and non-invasive

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

Zimmer Z Lipo Cryolipolysis

Zimmer Z Lipo Cryolipolysis

Similar to Clatuu, Zimmer Cryolipolysis has been successfully used to reduce fat on thighs, buttocks, love handles and upper arms. The fat cells undergo apoptosis as a result of the cold therapy. They are then broken down and removed naturally through the lymphatic system which takes about 10-12 weeks. 

During the treatment, applicators are placed on to the targeted areas and are adjusted to a controlled temperature to 4-9 degree Celcius below normal temperature. Excess fat will then be frozen while blood flow is maintained without damaging surrounding tissue. The applicators have a unique suction massage feature that activates during the treatment to ensure sufficient blood circulation and reduces any discomfort during and post treatment.
