What is Clatuu Alpha?

 

Clatuu Alpha is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that freezes away unwanted fat bulges on the body. The device eliminates fat cells through a process called cryolipolysis, making it a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
 

How does Clatuu Alpha work?

 
Clatuu Alpha works by freezing and destroying localized fat deposits by applying temperatures in the range of +5 to −5°C to the skin. Fat cells, when exposed to controlled cooling for a sustained period of time, undergo a gradual reduction and cell death through a process called apoptosis. This is a completely normal process – the average human adult loses between 50 to 70 billion cells every day due to apoptosis.  The fat cells are then absorbed through the lymphatic system and excreted from the body through the liver. The whole process takes between two to four months, which is when results can best be seen.
 
 

What areas can be treated?

 

IYAC offers treatments for the core region, including: 
- Stomach (upper and lower abdominals, post-pregnancy loose skin) 
- Waist 
- Lower back, i.e. “love handles” 
- Back and bra roll, i.e. “bra fat” areas

 

What areas of the body can be treated?

 
Clatuu Alpha treats abdominals and the middle region of the body. To treat smaller areas, we offer CoolSculpting, which has the CoolMini cup applicator to treat small pockets of fat, like that found under the chin and around the knees.
 

What happens during the procedure?

 
A transparent gel pad is placed over the treatment area to protect the skin. The applicators are then placed over the treatment areas, where they draw the fat up to deliver precise cooling into the skin. The underlying fat cells reach a temperature cold enough to freeze them through apoptosis, but without causing harm to surrounding nerves, muscle or skin.

 

How is Clatuu Alpha different from CoolSculpting?

 

Results are similar but the two devices are different in the following ways:

 

1) Clatuu Alpha is more comfortable and works faster due to a dual hand piece that can work on two areas at once. As both sides of the waist, or the upper and lower abdominals, can be treated at once, treatment times are significantly reduced (in many cases by 50 percent). Clatuu Alpha's 360° cooling system reaches the target temperature faster, further reducing treatment times. 


2) CoolSculpting is US FDA-approved and has an EU CE marking. It was introduced earlier, has been studied longer and is supported by more clinical evidence. Clatuu Alpha works the same way as CoolSculpting but it has not received these certifications or been the subject of as many medical studies. 

3) Clatuu Alpha is significantly lower in price (which is especially important to those treating multiple areas).

 

Who is an ideal candidate for Clatuu Alpha?

 
Good candidates are people near their ideal body weight who eat well and exercise regularly but who have specific fat deposits that do not respond to a healthy lifestyle. Clatuu Alpha is not intended as a weight loss program for overweight individuals or for all-over body fat reduction.
 

Is Clatuu Alpha safe?

 
Yes. Devices designed to induce cryolipolysis are safe and have been on the market for many years.
 

What do treatments feel like?

 
As the cooling begins during the first few minutes, you will feel pressure and intense cold. This soon dissipates, and a sensation similar to a firm tug and pull sets in. Many people rest comfortably while the device works, choosing to read, watch videos, work on their laptops or even take a nap during the treatment. As a result of the cooling, you may experience numbness and redness but this usually fades within a few hours. No anaesthesia is required.
 

Does it really work?

 
On average, one procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area. Patients can start to see results as soon as three weeks later with the most dramatic results occurring two to four months later. Most patients benefit from multiple treatment sessions to get the maximum fat loss possible.
 

Why is cryolipolysis so popular?

 

- No needles, surgery or downtime 
- No telltale signs of having “work done” 
- No pain; you can sleep during the treatment 
- Safe and supported by long-term studies 
- Simple; it’s an easy solution to a very common problem
