A Targeted Slimming Solution!

Cooltech® Fat Freeze + Lipolytic Injections & Radio Frequency + Lifestye, Exercise & Diet – a multi-faceted approach

What are Lipolytic Injections?

It is an injectable treatment that is ideal for targeted treatment of stubborn fat. It uses Vitamin C to cause oxidative stress which results in damage to the fat cells. The damage caused to the fat cells initiates the body’s natural process of cell death, resulting in destruction and reduction of the fat cells.

The lipolytic solution uses your body’s natural physiological process of fat metabolism. Thus it is a safe and effective method to reduce fat. It is ideal for areas of the body that are resistant to fat loss. It is therefore a safe treatment that can be used on the face, neck and body.

How is the procedure performed?

Firstly, the area is demarcated so to not miss any fat pockets. The lipolytic solution is then injected into target areas. This is done in conjunction with using anaesthetic cream which reduces the discomfort. The entire process takes 30-90 minutes depending on the area/s treated.

 

How soon can results be seen?

Results can be seen as soon as 3 days post treatment. However, it may take up to two weeks to see maximum results once swelling and bruising have subsided.

Are there possible side effects?

There may be minimal discomfort whilst injecting and a burning sensation may be felt. Bruising is common after the procedure but resolves after 3-7 days. There may be slight swelling of the area that will resolve within 24 – 48 hours.

How many sessions are required?

We recommend an average of 3 sessions per area, two weeks apart.

How do Lipolytic Injections + RF complement Cooltech®Fat Freeze?

Lypolitics target areas of fat that are resistant to treatment or weight-loss. When used in conjunction with Safyre Radio Frequency (RF) sessions it further reduces resistant fat pockets and smooths & tightens the skin over the targeted areas.

Radio Frequency treatments not only tone and tighten the skin, but further reduce any residue of fat pockets. This aids the sculpting performed through the use of Lipolytics, creating optimum results. Lipolytics reduce the amount of fat and when used in conjunction with RF it not only further reduces fat pockets, but also cellulite.  It tightens & sculpts the overall appearance of the body part/s treated. *See Safyre Radio Frequency Blog.

Cooltech® Fat Freeze, preferably done before Lipolytics & RF, initiates the slimming process by targeting fat cells and causing centimetre reduction. *See Cooltech® Blog.

Can Lipolytic Injections be done at the same time as Fat Freeze or Radio Frequency treatments?

We suggest you do 3 Cooltech® Fat Freeze sessions over 3 months. A series of Lipolytic Injections & Radio Frequency can be done 6 – 8 weeks later.

This is to prevent their mechanisms of action from interfering with one another and to prevent too much stress on the areas targeted. Lipolytic injections and RF finish off the work that Fat Freeze started, by further reducing and smoothing the fat pocket areas.

 

Who is not a suitable candidate for lipolytic injections?

It is contraindicated in pregnancy and breastfeeding. It may not be performed in an area that has an active infection. It may not be used in people with an allergy to Vitamin C/ Ascorbic acid. It may not be performed on people with an allergy to intravenous iron or lignocaine. Caution must be exercised in patients with diabetes, bleeding disorders and Warfarin/Anti-coagulant use. It is not advisable for people with renal dysfunction or G6PD deficiency.

Lifestyle, Diet & Exercise – a vital part of any Slimming Solution

We just give a few pointers here and will in due course publish a suggested shopping list, eating guidance plan and fat cell & centimetre reduction treatment regime as above.

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for the pandemic called Weight-gain!  It comes in all shapes and sizes;  some peoples’ are caused by overeating/overindulging in the wrong foods and alcohol abuse;  others are caused by predisposed conditions like Diabetes, Under-active Thyroid / Hashimoto’s Auto-immune, Cushing’s disease, Metabolic Syndrome or the Sympathetic Nervous System malfunctioning.

*Portion control is very important

*Eating the right quantities of all food groups daily

*A combination of high lean Protein + low Carbohydrates + fresh Vegetables which should cover half the plate

*Snack on good nuts like Almonds or Brazils, Goji berries & Fruit like Apples or Berries

*Cut down on Sugar, Carbs & Fat and mostly all things White – bread, pasta, potatoes etc.

*Make smart choices – Lentils & Chickpeas rather than rice

*Pumpkin or Gem squash rather than Butternut

*Good Oils like Olive, Flaxseed, Avocado & Grapeseed
