Lumi Sculpt Fat Freezing

Lumi Sculpt Fat Freezing

Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) uses advanced cooling technology to selectively eliminate fat across the outer thighs, inner thighs, ‘bingo wings’, lower abdomen, ‘love handles’, around the inner knees, calves, and ‘saddlebags’.

By bringing deposits down to cool, controlled temperatures, our proven Lumi Sculpt+ handle tool crystalises subcutaneous fat tissue with no harm to the overlying skin. In just a few weeks, these frozen fat cells will naturally leave the body for good through the lymphatic system, keeping the most stubborn areas of your body slim and defined.

Fat Freezing FAQs

Harnessing the power of cryolipolysis (the use of cold temperatures to break down fat cells), Lumi Sculpt+ employs a specially designed handle to target and freeze fat cells to sub-zero temperatures. This controlled cooling causes targeted fat cells to crystallise and undergo apoptosis, a natural cell death process.

In the weeks following this treatment, the body’s lymphatic system processes and eliminates these frozen cells, naturally flushing them out.

Throughout the treatment, you can expect mild discomfort as a result of the pressure applied to the skin, however, the results (which take full shape over the following weeks and months as the body flushes out the frozen fat) are more than worth it.

Undergoing Lumi Sculpt+ fat freezing at our salon in Ipswich is a simple, non-invasive process. Tailored to your needs, your session will begin with a consultation, ensuring your treatment, whether one-off or ongoing, meets all of your requirements and expectations.

The fat freezing session itself will begin with the gentle application of our Lumi Sculpt+ handle, which will vacuum and ‘freeze’ the area targeted. Initially, you might feel mild discomfort due to the pressure and cold, however, it shouldn’t be overwhelming. You’re free to let your Lumi Sculpt+ technician know of any discomfort – they’ll be happy to help.

Following your Lumi Sculpt+ fat freezing session, your body will begin its natural cell-flushing journey. The immediate aftermath might show some skin redness, but this usually subsides within a few hours. Mild swelling or a slight increase in area circumference due to subcutaneous fat trauma is typical, but this usually fades within 24 hours. On rare occasions, minor bruising might occur as a result of the pressure used.

You might urinate more in the weeks following your treatment as a result of your body’s efforts to naturally expel the treated fat cells via the lymphatic system.

The final slimming and defining results may take some time to become visible since the dead fat cells need to be flushed out naturally.

Lumi Sculpt+’s unique fat freezing and defining process delivers many benefits – the main one being its non-invasive nature! Often thought of as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, this treatment delivers targeted, slimming results without the high costs, risks or pain levels associated with medical procedures.

It delivers natural-looking results over a gradual period of weeks and months, resulting in the appearance of weight loss rather than abrupt alterations – however, unlike weight loss (during which fat cells shrink), it completely kills and removes fat cells, minimising the risk of regaining weight in treated areas.

Thanks to its unique vacuum and cooling application, Lumi Sculpt+ also lowers the chances of skin dimpling or uneven bumps appearing. Moreover, vital structures like nerve fibres, blood vessels, muscles, and the skin remain untouched and unharmed.

Cryolipolysis is the technical term for what is commonly known as ‘fat freezing’ – meaning they are indeed the same treatment.

Derived from the Greek words ‘cryo’ (cold), ‘lipo’ (fat), and ‘lysis’ (breakdown), cryolipolysis precisely describes the fat freezing process in a general way: the breakdown of fat cells using cooling. The fat freezing process itself can vary according to your chosen treatment provider and method.

Most modern fat freezing treatments combine low temperatures and pressure to target and destroy fat cells selectively, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Once these cells are frozen and destroyed, they naturally leave the body over time through the lymphatic system, resulting in a sculpted appearance.

Fat freezing is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it’s generally considered a much lower-risk alternative to surgery like liposuction. When performed by trained professionals using professional tools in a controlled environment, it’s very safe.

With this said, as with any cosmetic procedure, there can be side effects. These can include redness, swelling, bruising, and a feeling of slight pressure during the treatment.

Remember, while fat freezing is effective in reducing localised fat deposits, it’s not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle

Fat freezing is a scientifically proven method of reducing fat in a targeted manner.

The Lumi Sculpt+ process involves applying a specialised ‘handle’ to the chosen fat deposit area (for example, inner thighs or lower abdomen), and cooling it to temperatures low enough to trigger natural cell death.

Over time, these treated fat cells shrink and are metabolised by the body and flushed out through the lymphatic system, resulting in a more sculpted appearance.

Clinical studies have shown significant reductions in fat layers, with many individuals experiencing a noticeable difference after just one session. However, results can vary based on individual factors, such as the treatment area chosen, the amount of fat present, and your unique metabolism.

Fat freezing initiates a natural process of fat cell death and removal. During your non-invasive procedure, our Lumi Sculpt+ handle tool will bring the temperature of your targeted fat deposits down to a low enough level to freeze fat cells, causing them
to crystallise and die off. Whilst this part of the process happens relatively quickly, your body will still need to complete the task of processing and eliminating these cells for you to see results.

Most individuals start noticing a difference as early as three weeks post-treatment. However, the most dramatic results are typically visible between two to four months. Of course, factors including your unique metabolism, your chosen treatment area, and the amount of fat targeted can influence this timeline. It’s also worth noting that multiple sessions might be necessary to achieve desired results, depending on your goals.

A consultation with a trained fat freezing professional, like the Lumi Sculpt+ team here at Hair Ministry, can provide a clearer picture of what you can expect.

Exactly how long you should wait between your fat freezing sessions depends on your individual course, requirements, and expectations for results. For this reason, we recommend booking in for a consultation with a specialist to determine a timeline best suited to your needs.

With this said, it’s generally recommended to wait about 4 to 6 weeks before undergoing another treatment on the same area This allows the body time to process the frozen fat cells, and for you to witness what your final results should look like.

On average, fat freezing services across the UK can cost anywhere between £100 to £500 depending on the treatment location, the number of sessions you require, and your specific requirements. At Hair Ministry, we offer one-off, one-cup fat freezing sessions from £99, one-off EMS sessions from £50, and combined courses from £400 for 3.
