K-body Contouring (Clatuu Fat-Freezing)
What is Clatuu?
Clatuu is a non-invasive body-sculpting machine that has a 360-degree cooling method to induce lipolysis.
How does it work?
Freezing is an effective way to reduce body 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. In the first 10 minutes, there might be a slight tinge or coldness but the feeling would gradually reduce along the way.
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 fats return?
Yes, the fats that were destroyed would eventually return if the individual continues to lead an unhealthy lifestyle without regular exercising even 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.
How is Clatuu different from Zeltiq Coolsculpting?
- Both are non-invasive fat-freezing treatments that eliminate stubborn fats. When compared between the two, Clatuu is newer and uses the most advanced cooling technology.
- Clatuu has dual applicators, meaning two areas can be treated at the same time. Coolsculpting has one applicator; therefore it may require more treatment sessions than Clatuu.
- Clatuu is more cost effective as compared to Coolsculpting.
Can it be done on double chin?
The latest version of the Clatuu model, the Clatuu Alpha can treat the under chin area, which is not available on older machine models.
Clatuu, Clatuu Alpha and Zeltiq Coolsculpting treatments can be found at Gangnam Laser Clinic
