A popular option for people in Brisbane struggling to lose body weight, fat freezing, also known as Cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive method for permanently removing small areas of stubborn body fat.
This simple procedure, approved for use by both the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) can reduce fat cells by as much as 30% in a single session.
*Individual results will vary
Fat freezing permanently removes fat cells using a process called apoptosis. This is a natural part of the growth cycle where dead cells are absorbed by the body. During Cryolipolysis treatment, fat cells are deliberately damaged through cryotherapy (cold) therapy. After which they are absorbed by the body and metabolised in a natural way.
The treatment in The Derm Lab Brisbane clinic is far more effective than other fat removal treatments such as laser liposuction, which has little to no effect on the underlying fat cells. Also, unlike traditional treatments such as surgical liposuction, Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive therapy, reducing the risk of postoperative pain and scarring.
A typical Cryolipolysis session lasts less than an hour, but it can take a few weeks for the procedure to have full effect. During this period, fat cells from the treated area will be slowly absorbed by the body in a controlled and natural way. Soon your body shape will start to change and your new sculptured, toned look will begin to show through.
The procedure can be used to treat unwanted fat on all parts of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, chin, inner and outer thighs and arms. So now you say goodbye to those bingo wings and banana rolls without having to go through a painful medical procedure or endure another fad diet.
We provide FREE consultations at our clinic in Brisbane, so why not come and talk to us about your weight loss goals? Our trained therapists can also carry out a quick evaluation to ascertain which fat freezing technique will provide the best results for your body shape. This tailored approach helps us to achieve more satisfactory results over time.
Our mission is to provide affordable, effective weight loss treatment for men and women to help them feel fantastic again.
With their dual handpiece system, multiple uniquely designed applicators and a world-first patented 360° cooling application, Cooltech & CLATUU reduces fat faster and more effectively - Traditional single handpiece devices can only treat one side at a time.
Cooltech and CLATUU 360 are two of the most advanced Cryolipolysis machines available on the market today. Both of these devices are dual-head machines which allow multiple areas of the body to be treated at the same time, greatly reducing the amount of time required to complete a session.
Cooltech can also be fitted with a choice of applicators which allows us to remove unwanted fat from all areas of the body, including the arms, back, chin, hips, thighs, waist, and abdomen. Both machines are approved for use by both the FDA and TGA so you can expect to achieve optimal results without any complications.

Fat freezing cools the fat cells, which leads to fat cell death. The treatment is non-invasive – this means no needles, no bleeding and no anaesthesia. It’s a safe, effective way to permanently remove fat cells. This ensures unwanted fat never returns or regrows in this area.
Clinical trials of Cryolipolysis show a 26% reduction of fat cells in the treated area. With rapid technological advancements, including the introduction of a 360° profile in the cooling handle and post-treatment massage, our clients are experiencing up to a 30% reduction. The clinical trial results can be viewed here.
Fat cells die when exposed to cold temperatures. This process is known as apoptosis. Over time, these cells are naturally eliminated from the body via the normal metabolism process.
The treatment consists of a specifically sized applicator which is applied to the chosen treatment area. Then, the targeted tissue is sucked into the handle and cold therapy is applied.
At Melbourne’s The Derm Lab, we have the option of two machines which boast over 6 applicators. This allows us to offer you the best-sized applicator for the area you want treated.
Our 360° applicators cool the entire surface of the applicator head. This cools greater amounts of tissue, providing a larger area of cells cooled and a smoother result. This provides a far more effective result than traditional double Peltier (plate) applicators.
Our Melbourne clinicians will assess your body, and choose the perfect handle for your fat freezing treatment.
Cryolipolysis provides us with the ability to freeze fat in specific areas, including stomach, flanks, waist, hips, love handles, chin, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, upper arms, bra lines, double chin and banana rolls.
Depending on which area you want treated, treatments can last between 40-60 minutes.
Within the first few minutes, you’ll feel pressure and an intense cooling sensation. This feeling quickly subsides, as the area becomes numb. Many people choose to read, watch videos, work on their laptops or even nap during treatment sessions.
Once crystalised, fat cells slowly break down and are transported through the lymphatic system to the liver, where they’re processed out of the body as waste. Once your treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good.
Just like liposuction (without the surgery), the frozen fat cells are permanently removed from your body. Remaining cells can only increase if you put on weight.
Our patients achieve up to a 30% fat reduction in the treated area.
You can expect results within 6-8 weeks of your treatment. During this time, your body slowly eliminates the dead adipocytes (fat cells) through your normal metabolic function.
You’ll see noticeable results in just 4 weeks. But your body will continue flushing out fat cells for up to 6 months after your treatment. The best results are seen between 12 weeks.
During the procedure, you may experience a deep pulling sensation and coldness in the treated area. However, after 5-7 minutes, the area becomes numb.
After your procedure, you may experience: temporary numbness, redness, slight swelling, mild bruising, mild firmness and/or mild pain.
Yes. The procedure is non-invasive, so there’s less risk than liposuction, and no risk of burns, like laser lipolysis.
This revolutionary technology has been approved to reduce fat in Europe since 2009, and by the FDA in America since 2010. Our innovative Cryolipolysis technology is approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
As part of the Department of Health, the TGA safeguards and enhances the health of Australians through effective and timely regulation of therapeutic goods.
Once a product/technology has been tested and approved, it is continually regulated through post-market monitoring and enforcement of standards.
Our regular treatment cost is $499 per applicator/handle. We also offer special discounts and promotions from time to time. To hear about our offers and promotions, subscribe here.
Financial assistance may also be available. Feel free to speak to a staff if you have financial concerns.
To treat muffin tops or love handles, for example, you’ll need 2 applicators (one on each side) for an even body sculpting result. For the abdomen, you may need 1, 2 or 4 applicators, depending on the size and shape of your belly fat and your desired results.
The amount of fat you have to lose combined with your body goals dictates the number of treatments you’ll need. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to body sculpting. It’s as individual as we are.
Please contact our Melbourne team for a free consultation. We’ll discuss your desired outcomes, results, treatment options and costs, designing a treatment program specifically for you.
Cryolipoysis is safe for almost everyone, provided we can put a suitable amount of tissue into the applicator head. However, it’s not as effective in patients interested in losing lots of weight (such as obese patients).
The size and location of fat pockets are different on every individual. Therefore, we’re happy to conduct a free suitability assessment.
We also know everyone has a different vision of how they want to look. What one person considers fantastic and what feels great may not be right for another.
We appreciate that low weight and underweight people can have pockets of fat that they can’t budge despite diet and exercise. However, we are very responsible when recommending treatment for underweight clients.
At The Derm Lab, we use Cryolipolysis to literally sculpt and contour your body. Our clinicians have extensive experience and will advise you on the best option to suit your needs.
Note: Certain medical conditions and medications (particularly blood thinners) must be considered/paused before Cryolipolysis treatment. We’ll discuss this with you over the phone and during your pre-treatment assessment.
We have performed nearly 3000 treatments since 2017, becoming one of the leading fat freezing clinics in the nation. That’s why we have so many before and after photos on our website and social media. If another clinic can’t show you similar photos they have actually achieved (vs stock images they have downloaded from the internet) then you have to ask why.
We do! Of the nearly 3000 treatments we have performed, less than 1% did not result in a visible change in clinical before and after photos, so those patients got every cent of their money back. Remember that while Cooltech isn’t ‘cheap’, it actually works for 99% of patients and we offer the guarantee for the small percentage where it does not. While other treatments may claim to be cheap, they work out very expensive if they do nothing and you can’t get your money back!
