Fat freezing (aka Cryolipolysis) is a natural, safe, non-invasive treatment, designed to permanently remove pockets of body fat.
Cleared by the FDA and TGA since 2010, fat freezing treatments can reduce your fat cells by up to 30% in the treated area, all in a single session.
*Individual results will vary
Fat freezing is a safe way to permanently remove fat cells. Cryolipolysis works through the process of apoptosis – a genetically regulated process which gradually kills fat cells. In this process, the fat cells are damaged through cold (cryo) therapy, and are naturally metabolised through your system.
Unlike laser liposuction (which has almost no effect on destroying fat cells) or surgical liposuction, an extreme, inherently invasive procedure with surgical risk (including possible adhesions, prolonged downtime, potential scarring and post-operative pain), Cryolipolysis is a walk-in, walk-out treatment, with little to no downtime.
After just one hour of treatment at our Melbourne clinic, you’ll walk out knowing within a few weeks, your shape will begin to change and you’ll find that beautiful body hidden underneath.
To help you remove stubborn, unwanted fat, we can treat the abdomen, flanks (love handles), double chins, inner and outer thighs, knees, bra bulge, banana rolls and arms.
Our highly experienced team has worked with some of Australia’s leading cosmetic and plastic surgeons. So, we understand body aesthetics, symmetry and finesse. We customise your treatment plan to your desired results and needs, rather than a “one-machine-fits-all” approach.
We offer complimentary consultations, so we can educate and guide you and gain an understanding of your weight loss goals and expectations.
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.
It’s true that fat freezing is not for everyone. However, it can be a more suitable option than liposuction. Our fat freezing machines can be used all over your body, but are typically most useful to remove unwanted fat on the hips, waist, back, arms, thighs, chin and abdomen.
Fat freezing is a safe weight loss option. So, you can expect your treatments to go smoothly, and attain optimal results.

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 in our Melbourne Clinic. 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 cleared 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 in Melbourne clinic is $399 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 4000 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 in Melbourne 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!
