Trudy (44,) is a working mum and after her first child gained a bit of weight - like most of us do! It was after her 40th birthday, when she was looking through the party photos and thought, is that really me? She decided it was time to make a change and get her body back to how she remembered it.

Trudy began exercising at least 4 times a week, and changed her diet, nothing too crazy, just sensible healthy choices. It was a lifestyle change, not a fad. A year on, and Trudy was in great shape, she had shed a few kilos, and her body shape had changed, but there was still a few areas that wouldn’t budge, no matter how many squats, or crunches she did, those little fat budges were still there. They were an issue for Trudy; “I really had a problem with my thighs, I’ve always hated my saddlebags, and I always joked that if I won the lottery, I would get liposuction,” she admits.

Although Trudy had considered liposuction, after actually researching the procedure, it was certain no; “the recovery time was too great, especially with a young child, there’s no way I could be off work for that long, and to be honest, the surgery itself looked too invasive, I was scared to do it and it wasn’t for me”.

Trudy’s friend suggested she look into cryolipolysis technology which is often considered a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. Cryolipolysis uses controlled cooling to cool specific areas of fat below body temperature, crystallizing the fat cells without causing damage to the overlying skin. The fatty tissue (subcutaneous fat) are naturally more vulnerable to the cold, and as a result of the treatment, the treated fat cells die, and are naturally eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic process. After a few months and multiple treatments, there is a reduction of the fatty tissue layer. With over 1 million Cryolipolysis procedures worldwide, it is proven to be a safe and effective treatment for non-surgical fat reduction.

After researching the treatment, Trudy decided this was the best treatment for her; “there is no downtime, minimal recovery time, and the treatment only takes 45mins. It’s faster, and more affordable than liposuction, and I can pop in during a lunch break at work and no one would even know”. She signed up the Caci’s ChillSculpt™ programme that uses cryolipolysis technology to target stubborn fat areas.

Trudy signed up and has now completed a 6 month ChillSculpt™ programme at Caci targeting her saddle bags and has is very happy with the results. “I’ve noticed a huge difference in the way my clothes fit, I went from a size 12 dress size to a size 10”. Trudy has had a 1cm reduction around her thighs, which equates to a full pant size loss. “I went to put on my favourite black pants, and they just slid right off me, if was fantastic!”

The cost of a ChillSculpt™ programme varies depending on the treatment area and number of treatments required, a six month Caci ChillSculpt™ programme starts from around $1600. Caci offers easy payment plans, so clients can pay for their treatments in instalments. They also offer Q Card.
