With more women around the globe agreeing that we should be able to talk openly about cosmetic procedures, it’s no surprise that everything from lip filler to microneedling is on the rise.

However, according to new research from cosmetic review site RealSelf, the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment of last year was body shaping procedures – otherwise known as fat-freezing.

This non-surgical fat reduction treatment, which uses Cryolipolysis technology, has found celebrity fans in Khloe Kardashian and Molly Sims – but what does it mean to really ‘freeze’ your fat, and how exactly does it work?

What is it?

Fat freezing targets fat cells in those stubborn areas that won’t seem to budge, even with regular exercise and a healthy diet. The treatment targets fat cells for permanent removal.

However, it’s important to note that this is not a quick-fix weight-loss solution – instead, it’s designed for someone who already follows a healthy lifestyle but has certain areas or pockets of stubborn fat they just can’t get rid of.

How does it work?

At Caci, we offer a Cryolipolysis treatment called ChillSculpt. It uses controlled cooling to target and kill fat cells. In the weeks following the treatment, these cells are naturally eliminated through your body’s metabolic process.

ChillSculpt will only freeze fat cells in the targeted treatment area, and once they’ve been treated, they’re gone for good.

ChillSculpt can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Stomach: lower abdomen
  • Hips: Muffin tops
  • Thighs
  • Waist
  • Back: Bra strap area and love handles
  • Saddle bags

How many treatments do I need and how much does it cost?

Everyone is different, so results vary and the results are often visible at different stages for different people. For best results, we’ve found having 6-8 treatments is the most effective.

That’s why we developed the ChillSculpt® programme; a prescribed schedule of treatments to give you the best results possible.

A one-off treatment is $450, but the cost per session is reduced on a ChillSculpt® programme.

After your course of ChillSculpt® treatments, you can expect reduced fat in this area and a more sculpted, defined look.
