If you’ve tried weight loss and exercise and are struggling to permanently remove those last, small areas of stubborn fat on your thighs, buttocks or any other part of your body, then cryolipolysis is an ideal treatment for you. This popular and non-invasive method of fat reduction has been health and safety cleared by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It’s also been clinically proven to be able to remove up to 30% of fat cells in only one session.

The cryolipolysis fat freezing process is specifically designed to remove fat through a process called apoptosis. How this works is the stubborn deposits of fat cells are deliberately damaged using cryotherapy. After the cells die, the body naturally absorbs and metabolises them.
This type of treatment offers far more superior results than other fat removal treatments, such as laser liposuction, which offers very limited or no effect on any of the underlying fat cells. Another major benefit of cryolipolysis, is it’s a non-invasive treatment, so it doesn’t result in side effects such as postoperative scarring, like other more traditional fat removal treatments, such as surgical liposuction.
Most cryolipolysis sessions take under an hour, but the results may not be fully evident for a few weeks. Over a period of 12 weeks following initial treatment, the area of fat that has been treated slowly die and are naturally absorbed back into the body. Once this has occurred, your body will start to transform and become more sculptured. This procedure is effective for all of the areas where you’re experiencing unwanted smaller fat deposits on the body, such as your flanks, chin, arms, buttocks, abdomen and thighs. It allows you to achieve the toned physique you’ve always wanted, without surgical procedures.
Before we undertake cryolipolysis, our team will have a comprehensive one-on-one consultation with you to discuss your body contouring goals and assess your body shape, to determine which fat freezing technique will provide you with the most beneficial results. By providing an individually tailored service, we deliver effective results for our patients.
Our mission is to provide affordable, effective weight loss treatment for men and women to help them feel fantastic again.
With cryolipolysis technology, as the fat cells are frozen, these are deemed as non-toxic by the body and are metabolised without stressing the body, whereas non-invasive therapies like laser liposuction use heat to kill the cells, which is toxic for the organs during the metabolising process.
If you’re considering a non-invasive fat reduction, there are three different types of fat freezing procedures which have been cleared in Australia for use by the TGA which are: CoolSculpting, Cooltech and CLATUU 360. We incorporate 2 of these leading non-invasive fat removal technologies at The Derm Lab. The technologies we use are CLATUU 360 and Cooltech, which enable us to reduce unwanted fat across all parts of the body.
* Individual results may vary
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.
At The Derm Lab, we use Cooltech and CLATUU 360 fat freezing technologies because these are recognised as two of the most innovative and advanced cryolipolysis machines currently available worldwide. As both of these devices have dual heads, it enables several areas of the body to be freeze treated at once, which reduces the session times.
As Cooltech is designed to be able to fit a wide range of applicators, it provides us with the versatility to reduce unwanted fat on all areas of the body, such as arms, back, chin, thighs, waist and abdomen. In addition to this, both of these fat freezing technologies are FDA and TGA cleared, so have been tested and proven to deliver premium results, without complications.

Fat freezing cools the fat cells, which leads to their 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. 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, they 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 to be 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
