LipoGlaze Cryotherapy Specialists
At our specialist fat loss clinic in Hove (Sussex) we specialise extensively in the Fat Freezing procedure known as Cryolipolysis, we have 3 different machines with 9 different applicator heads for differing parts of the body.
We were the first to offer Lipoglaze (Fat freezing) outside of Harley street back in 2013 and have invested intensively since. The treatment was pioneered at Harvard Medical School, is FDA approved and highly regarded within the industry. It is proving increasingly popular, particularly for those looking for a non-invasive alternative to Liposuction or a highly effective way to help their weight loss.
Fat Freezing targets different areas which can be stubborn to reduce with diet and exercise alone. These areas can include but are not limited to: Stomach, Love handles (flanks, muffin top), inner and outer thighs, arms (under), Bra line.
Benefits of Cryotherapy LipoGlaze treatments
Next to no downtime.
Safe, non-surgical and clinically proven.
Relatively comfortable and no sedation.
Fast treatment time.
Non-invasive alternative to Liposuction.
Effective for spot reducing hard-to-shift body fat.
How does LipoGlaze Cryotherapy work?
We use cooling plates and a vacuum head. Initially the plates heat up to encourage the fat cells to separate; the plates then drop in temperature to -5c to -9c for between 45 and 60 minutes. The time and temperature needed for the treatment varies and depends on your body fat, composition of fat and age.
Adipocyte (fat) cells are targeted by the fat freezing treatment process of Cryolipolysis (Cryotherapy). These adipocyte cells are typically rich with saturated fatty acids which are particularly sensitive to cold, which is why this cooling technology is so effective. Other cells, such as skin tissue, blood vessels and the nervous system are not so sensitive to freezing and remain completely unaffected by this fat freezing treatment.
Once the treatment has taken place the large majority of the targeted fat cells will be liquid and subsequently removed through your liver and kidneys in the same natural way as other toxins.
When do I see Cryotherapy results?
Results are usually seen 3 – 9 weeks after your fat freezing treatment, although we have seen near full results in 4 weeks (mostly on the under 30’s). We book clients in for post measurement appointments at the 4 and 8 week mark to run a bio impedance check on our full body stat machine (Body fat, BMR, Protein, Salt and Water content). We also do measurements and pictures to have as much data as possible to monitor the treatments success.
How long do fat freezing results last?
The treatment itself is permanent as the cells cannot re-inflate once the procedure is done and the results are apparent. There are very few Aesthetic treatments that are permanent but this is one of them. Each consultant has a specialist field at Clinic 33 and the consultant you will see for this consultation just does this procedure and has over 15 years experience in the fat reduction and weight loss industry.
Are there any side effects with LipoGlaze?
There is minimal downtime. You may have the following side effects immediately following your Cryotherapy treatment but they should subside quickly:
We recommend you drink plenty of water in the weeks following your Cryotherapy to help flush out the dead fat cells. Regular body brushing at home also stimulates your lymphatic system to naturally eliminate these fat cells.
Is fat freezing painful?
As we use a strong non-invasive suction to gather the target area, you may feel a ‘gripping’ sensation initially which dies down within a couple of minutes. You will then experience a cooling sensation throughout the treatment.

FAQs about Fat Freezing
Does fat freezing really work?
Well, this is the question. According to realself.com (a website where individuals upload
comments and reviews of treatments) it has a ranking of 90%, which in Aesthetics is very very good.
We have been doing the procedure since 2013 and have done over 3000 treatments, in this time we
can count on one hand the occasions where it has not been as successful as predicted.
Fat freezing is our flagship treatment, we focus greatly on the procedure, we have 3 machines and a
variety of treatment heads (applicators).
Can you lose weight by freezing fat?
Now, fat loss and weight are different. Weight loss you have all over and is measured
normally by total body weight. Fat loss is normally measured by Bio Impedance (scales and software
that can track a variety of stats) or body fat callipers, though this is subject to human error.
Fat freezing gives you spot reduction of body fat in a very specific area, often stomach, sides, legs
etc. We measure the progress and results through a full Bio data analysis machine, a measuring tape
The treatment is not classed as a weight loss procedure. It is a fat reduction procedure in which you
may lose say 4 inches of your waist but not change much on the scales.
We normally combine Nutritional coaching and planning with the treatment for individuals that also
require weight loss. The combination of these two give you a much more realistic and closer chance
of success to the level you would most likely want.
What are the side effects of fat freezing?
The area will be red and tender for roughly 10 minutes post treatment, occasionally this can
feel sore until the area has warmed up (10 minutes). Bruising can occur and may last for a few days
in some places.
How much does it cost for fat freezing?
Small cup: £100 | Medium: £150 | Large £250 | X large £350.
Please not the X large head is only suitable for people over a certain size.
Can you freeze belly fat at home?
This is not possible.
How do you get rid of fat cells permanently?
In simple terms, Cryotherapy in this case Cryolipolysis works by changing the internal
structure of an Adipose cell from a solid into a liquid composition. This then causes the cell to reduce
and keep reducing until the liquid Adipose tissue within the cell is excreted through your liver and
kidneys. The process takes a few weeks with the end result being death and mass shrinkage of the
cell, thus giving a reduction of body fat in that exact area.
How many fat freezing sessions will I need?
Maybe 1, maybe 3. This will depend upon your current body composition and your desired
end goal. For the large majority of people we see here it is 1 to 2 treatments in an area.
