What is Clatuu Fat-Freezing?
Clatuu is a non-invasive body-sculpting machine that has a 360-degree cooling method to induce cryolipolysis. Freezing is an effective way to reduce fat, as fat cells are susceptible to the cold. The targeted fat cells are then crystalized and disposed off naturally by the body’s metabolism system, over a span of 6-12 weeks. The surrounding cells will not be affected at all.
Is the treatment painful?
There is a slight sensation when the applicator is placed on the treatment area. During the first 10 minutes, there may be a slight tinge or coldness but the sensation would gradually subside along the way as the area starts to numb.
What are the advantages of Clatuu?
- Quick (each session is 40-60 minutes long depending on treatment area)
- Minimal downtime
Who can benefit from Clatuu?
Anyone can benefit from Clatuu, especially individuals who have trouble getting rid of stubborn fat in different areas.
What are the treatment areas for Clatuu?
How many sessions are needed and what is the frequency of each session?
The number of sessions required is dependent on the treatment area. Our doctors can design a treatment plan based on our patients’ expectations and body type. A Clatuu session can be done once every 3 months.
How long does it take for results to show?
Results can be seen in 4-12 weeks from treatment.
Will the lost fat return?
Yes, fat that were destroyed would eventually return if the individual continues to lead an unhealthy lifestyle without regular exercising after treatment. Body maintenance after a Clatuu treatment (or any body contouring treatment) is essential in preventing loss fat from forming again.
Are there any side effects or downtime?
Clatuu generally has no side effects. However, there is minimal downtime with slight bruising that would subside within a week. There might also be numbness on the treatment area that would subside within 1-3 weeks.
