Lipo Angel ICE - Cryolipolysis
Selectively targets fat cells - Permanent inch loss - results similar to lipo suction without surgery or recovery time
The area to be treated is targeted and fat cells in this area are cooled to a low temperature. The fat cells are sensitive to temperature reduction and are broken down when frozen. They are then passed out of the body via the lymphatic system. The body takes several weeks to naturally dispose of the fat cells via lipolysis so results can be seen from 4-8 weeks after the treatment.
Cryolipolysis is a one off treatment - the area only needs to be treated once and does not require a course of treatments.
It is the nearest results you can get to lipo suction without undergoing surgery. The treatment takes 45 minutes, selectively targets fat cells and gives a permanent inch loss without invasive surgery and recovery time.
The term "Popsicle Panniculitis" was coined by Harvard scientists who studied the effect of popsicles on children. The term refers to a dermatologic condition where exposure to low temperatures can selectively damage subcutaneous fat while leaving surrounding cells intact. The study showed that as a result of the popsicle, fat cells in the cheeks underwent a cell death resulting in dimples and distortion..
This process is also known as "Apoptosis". Fat cells are more easily damaged by cooling than skin cells, cryolipolysis was developed by applying low temperatures to tissue via thermal conduction. The adipocyte (fat cells) are rich with saturated fatty acids, these cells are particularly sensitive to temperature reduction and freezing. Under such extreme conditions the fat cells die. Other cells such as skin tissue, blood vessels, and our nervous system are not as sensitive to freezing and are therefore unaffected by the Lipo Angel ICE treatment.
Cryolipolysis is a one off treatment, you don't have to have a course, one 45 minute session is all that is required on any given area. The treatment can be done on the tummy, 'love handles', lower back, upper legs, bottom, and upper arms.
Cryolipolysis - one off treatment only - 45 minutes per area

Cryolipolysis and Cavitation Review from Vita Client - 2014
For years I had seriously thought about investing in a tummy tuck, despite being concerned about the operation, the recovery time, and the thoughts about “what if it went wrong”, and then by chance I read about Cryoliplysis and Cavitation. I have to be the most sceptical person around when it comes to “fads” about making you slimmer and have tried most things on the market, but as if timing was meant to be, Vita Skin Spa advertised they were about to start offering this treatment. The decision was easy, I would have to try it and I am so happy that I did. Not only have I saved a lot of money, it was so simple, lie there for 45 mins whilst the machine sucked the fat up and then froze it. No pain, no down time only a very small amount of bruising which quite frankly had gone after 2 days. I drank water as I was instructed, as it helps to pass the fat out of the system and wait and watch the results appear.
As if by magic the results did appear, along with the cavitation sessions which further aids in melting fat and tightening the skin, after 2 weeks the difference was amazing, and the Cryoliplysis takes 6-8 weeks to fully show the effects. Well since April I have had further Cryoliplysis on the upper stomach and the love handles, and guess what, not only does it work it’s so much cheaper than going under the knife. The cavitation again no pain, it just feels like a massage on the area with what can only be described as a light screeching in the ears (but I am told everyone is different) and then the heat effect to tighten the skin, again no pain, just lie there like the therapist do their thing, but you know when they have finished and stand up that “magic” has occurred as you feel great and you can see the effects immediately. I would recommend this to anyone who is thinking “hmm does it really work”, the answer is Yes and if like me you are sceptical then from one sceptic to another “You have nothing to lose only fat”
Thankyou Vita Skin Spa for giving me a new lease of life. I can say that I feel like a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. I feel so much more confident, not just in my clothes but in myself.
