Fat freezing

How long does a treatment take?2022-10-09T22:22:34+00:00

A treatment with the Clatuu Alpha takes 40 minutes. This doesn’t include the time you will need to get undressed and dressed again, the positioning of the heads on the body and a short massage afterwards on the treated area. So, you will need around an hour for a treatment. If you have two treatments consecutively, it will take around an hour and a half.


What happens during the treatment?2022-10-10T19:52:05+00:00

During the treatment, the machine simply does its job; it cools the fat cells at the area which is being treated. While its working, you can read a book, watch a film or work.

What will I feel during the treatment?2022-10-10T19:56:09+00:00

Once the gel pads have been applied to the skin, the treatment heads are positioned. Once they are in place, the machine is turned on. At that moment, the skin is sucked into the treatment heads and you may feel a pinching sensation and perhaps a tingling feeling. This feeling soon fades, however, as the skin is cooled. There will always be a specialist on hand during the start-up phase. After the treatment, the skin will be massaged by the specialist. This ensures a better result. The entire treatment is described by our clients as painless.

How many treatments will I need?2022-10-10T20:01:07+00:00

This very much depends on the desired end result and the areas that are being treated. During each treatment, we use two treatment heads so that we can cool a larger area each time. Two treatments can also be planned one after the other, for example for different parts of the body. You must have a break of eight weeks between treatments on the same area of the body in order to allow the body to remove the fat cells.

During your initial consultation, we will draw up a personal treatment plan so you know exactly how many treatments you will need.

Is treatment with the Clatuu Alpha safe?2022-10-10T20:06:07+00:00

Absolutely. The Clatuu Alpha has a CE mark which means it is approved for use in Europe. The device is also regularly checked by certified bodies and our own specialists  who are experienced and trained in carrying out treatments with the Clatuu Alpha. A checklist will also be used prior to treatment to gauge your medical status and a specialist will be present during each treatment.

In order to protect the skin, we use a gel pad between the treatment head and the skin itself. The skin is never in direct contact with the device.

Is there a recovery period after treatment?2022-10-10T20:10:17+00:00

No. Immediately after treatment, you can carry on with your day; you can cycle home, do some exercise or go back to work. The treatment is not an operation and you do not need any anaesthetic so you can just get on with your tasks.

When will I see results?2022-10-10T20:26:58+00:00

The initial results are visible within 3 to 5 weeks of your first treatment. Twelve weeks after the first treatment, you return for a check-up. We will then take new photos, which we can compare with the photos before your first treatment. You will then see the result you have achieved.

Are there any side-effects?2022-10-10T20:30:15+00:00

Het behandelde gebied zal na de behandeling wat gevoelig zijn. Soms kan wat roodheid of een blauwe plek ontstaan. Dit is volkomen normaal en de huid herstelt zich hier weer van binnen enkele dagen.

Skin tightening

How long does a treatment take?2022-10-16T11:10:31+00:00

A treatment with the Exilis Ultra 360™ takes between 4 and 30 minutes, depending on the condition of the skin and the location of the treatment zone.

What happens during the treatment?2022-10-16T10:19:19+00:00

During the treatment, the specialist will move the treatment head in gentle, rotating movements across the relevant area. The heat will disrupt the old connecting tissues and stimulate the creation of new collagen. Fat cells are also damaged so that they can then be removed by the body.

What will I feel during the treatment?2022-10-16T11:09:51+00:00

The treatment heads are warm and are moved around in rotating movements across your skin. This will feel similar to a relaxing hot-stone massage.

How many treatments will I need?2022-10-16T10:31:28+00:00

Each treatment plan comprises 4 treatments. You will then be given a 5th session as a gift from us. You can use this at a later date to boost collagen production in your skin.

Hoe lang blijft het gewenst resultaat met de Exilis Ultra 360?2022-10-10T19:32:45+00:00

Skin sagging is a natural process. Skin tightening makes the skin look younger by stimulating the production of collagen but this effect reduces after a while. The skin then begins to age again and may lose its tightness. That is why we give you a package of 4 treatments with a 5th as a gift for a later date. The skin can then be given a boost just when it needs it so that skin ageing is delayed again.

Is treatment with the Exilis Ultra 360™ safe?2022-10-16T10:41:07+00:00

Absolutely. The Exilis Ultra 360™ is CE and FDA certified. This means that it has been medically approved in both Europe and America. Furthermore, our specialists are trained in the use of this machine and will use a checklist during the intake interview to verify your medical status. Each treatment will be provided by an experienced specialist.

In order to protect the skin, we will place an earthing set on the ground to conduct the energy that is released by the equipment during treatment.

Is the treatment with the Exilis Ultra 360™ an alternative for fillers and Botox?2022-10-16T10:46:45+00:00

Yes, skin tightening treatments are an excellent alternative to fillers and Botox. The result is the same but is achieved without needles and injections. Instead, the skin is stimulated to create its own collagen.

Is there a recovery period after treatment?2022-10-16T11:15:47+00:00

No. Immediately after treatment, you can carry on with whatever you were doing before. However, we strongly advise against visiting a sauna/spa straight after treatment.

When will I see results?2022-10-16T11:22:46+00:00

Some people see an instant result but the best results are usually visible after a few months.

Are there any side-effects?2022-10-16T19:46:15+00:00

The skin can feel a little warm after treatment or go a bit red. This is completely normal and the skin will recover very quickly.

Am I suitable for skin tightening?2022-10-16T19:55:24+00:00

In principle, skin tightening is suitable for anyone aged over 21. During the intake interview, we will run through your personal situation to determine whether you are suitable.
