frequently asked questions - COOL FREEZE BODY SCULPTING BY CLATUU

What is CLATUU?

Clatuu is the non-invasive cooling of fat cells to induce lipolysis without damage to other tissue types. CLATUU fat freezing away is a safer alternative to liposuction. The purpose of CLATUU treatment is to remodel the shape of the body.

How does CLATUU work?

CLATUU treatment, cryolipo therapy works on the basis that fat cells are more vulnerable to cold. That is why CLATUU treatment makes fat cell freeze selectively without damage of other tissue. The destroyed fat cell is, then, naturally released from body through metabolic process over a period of 6 to 12weeks.

What happens after the treatment?

The treated area will appear cold and red. This disapates within one hour. Some ongoing numbness id also normal and self revolves over a few weeks.
After the treatment, the cooled fat cells begin a process called “apoptosis” and begin to shrink. These damaged fat cells are slowly metabolized over 6 to 12 weeks by our bodies.

Is CLATUU treatment painful?

The initial feeling when the applicator is applied is that the skin is being pulled intensely into a vacuum. Although tight and somewhat uncomfortable it is not painful. Once the cooling process begins patients describe a stinging feeling from the cold sensation, this lasts less than 10 minutes.  

When can we see the result from CLATUU treatment?

As the CLATUU treatment induces apoptosis, it takes a little bit of time to see the result. Therefore, with CLATUU treatment you will start seeing results after 4~12weeks.

How much can we reduce the size in treated area?

According to the study, normally one session (applying the 1 applicator) reduces size by 1 inch. As CLATUU has two applicators, patients reduce the size 2 inches at a time.

How long does a CLATUU treatment take?

CLATUU treatment takes 40~60minutes. It depends on the thickness of targeted area or part.

Are there any side effects?

Normally, there are not any severe side effects. Some patients, however, might experience minor bruising. The bruises disappear 4~7days later. Rarely, numbness happens but it also naturally dissipates after 1~3 weeks. 

How many treatments are needed?

It depends on the thickness of the fat. Clatuu treatment can be repeated at 90 days intervals on the same area.

What can be expected during the procedure?

The initial feeling when the applicator is applied is that the skin is being pulled intensely into a vacuum. The cooling process begins which might sting or feel uncomfortable for the first 10 minutes. Thereafter the area feels cold and numb. After the applicator is removed, the treated area feels cold and hard. Then the physician does a massage of the treated area, which quickly reduces the harden effect.
