CLIENT INFORMATION:

ABOUT CLATUU ALPHA

Aesthetica Cosmetic Clinic uses the CLATUU Alpha device which is the world’s leading technology in the procedure for permanent fat reduction also known as Cryo fat freezing. The Cryo procedure uses a vacuum applicator to draw in skin and fat and cool the tissue in the cooling cup at temperatures as low as – 9°C. This procedure can be used on any part of the body for permanent fat reduction.

Aesthetica’s Cryo treatment you can expect to permanently remove 20 – 30% of the localised fat in the treated area per treatment keeping in mind with all procedures, visible results vary from person to person.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT DURING AND AFTER THE TREATMENT
You will need to stay in position for 20 to 60 minutes once the treatment cycle begins, and keep in mind you are unable to stop and start the treatment.

When the applicator suction is applied, it causes sensations of deep pulling, tugging, and pinching. You may experience intense stinging, tingling, aching, or cramping as the treatment begins. These sensations fades out as the area becomes numb which does not take long to get to the numbing stage.

After the treatment has commenced and the hand piece is removed you can expect the following in treated area, transient blanching (whiteness) of the skin and intense red to purple color. These are normal reactions that naturally resolve within minutes.

Bruising, swelling or tenderness may occur after the applicator is removed this is completely normal. Bruising can last up to a week.

If concerned at any time please contact Aesthetica.

Immediately after treatment, our therapist will massage the semi-frozen area of fat cells, as this will improve clinical outcomes and help retain skin temperature in the treated area. You may feel odd, uncomfortable, or have a slight pain sensation during the massage this is completely normal.

Healthy eating is required in the weeks following the treatment to reach your desired outcome. After CLATUU Alpha treatment, it’s important that you participate in a low-intensity workout such as jogging or walking for at least 30 minutes within 24 - 48 hours.
