4D Cryo

How Does It Work?

CryoGenic Lipolysis (4D Cryo) is the application of controlled cooling to trigger an inflammatory response within the adipocyte layer, thereby reducing the overall thickness of the fat layer, also known as “Fat Freezing”.

The Cryogenic Lipolysis process selectively cools the cells of the adipose layer, resulting in a condition known as “Popsicle Panniculitis”. This is a dermatologic condition, where exposure to low temperatures can selectively damage subcutaneous fat while leaving skin intact. The result of the cooling is cellular death of the fat cells, through a process called “Apoptosis.”

The 4D-Cryo platform leverages CryoGenic Lipolysis for the cooling phase of the Thermal Shock treatments. Thermal shock warms the tissue prior and immediately following the cooling phase to optimise results, stimulate blood flow and improve customer comfort.

The CryoGenic Lipolysis treatment draws heat out of the fat cells to reach temperatures of -4°C, causing their natural death. As the lipids and fats within the fat cells freeze, hollow hexagonal prism shaped ice crystals form. These ice crystals extend beyond the cell membrane, allowing ions to pass across the cell membrane in an un-controlled manner, resulting in an ionic imbalance within the fat cell. This ionic imbalance causes cellular death to occur and is known as “apoptosis”. However, because lipids and fats crystallise significantly faster and at warmer temperatures than surrounding cells, there is no damage to skin, muscle, nerves, or other tissue.  During the approximate 12-week period following treatment, the affected fat cells die, shrink, and are removed through the body’s natural biological processes. This results in a reduction in the fat density in the treated area of between 25 and 40%.

"I was, let’s say sceptical to say the least but as my other half booked me a course for my birthday I thought what the heck. Twelve sessions and six weeks later I feel like a different woman, my legs are slimmer, my love handles are not hanging over my jeans and I can even see a tiny bit of muscle definition. I am so happy with the results and for all the support I received from Cheryl along the way, I would recommend this to anyone who doesn’t feel that confident with their body."
What a Transformation!
Sally Brighton
"I have been to a number of local ‘shop salons’ where I have not been impressed with the service so finding a lovely professional home salon within two miles of my home was perfect. A stunning old farmhouse set in the Surrey Hills between Dorking and Reigate is a beautiful location to visit and have treatments."
What a Find!
Verity Harris Betchworth
"Age was starting to catch up on me and for the first time in my life I started to look my age. I researched my options as I really didn’t want to have surgery; luckily for me this is how I found Body Beautiful Surrey and the wonderful Cheryl who put me at ease immediately. I have now had five treatment sessions and one more to go and I can honestly say that I am so happy with the results, the change is truly is amazing!"
As Young As My Daughter!
Evelyn London
"I have long suffered with what I call ‘Panda Eyes’ but even since my first treatment I could see the difference in the tightness and colouring around my eyes. Even my husband has noticed the difference and that’s saying something…. Thank you Cheryl so much xx"
My Eyes Look Like They Used To
Linda Smith Coulsdon
"I am so glad I plucked up the courage and contacted Body Beautiful Surrey because the cellulite around my legs has really diminished since having my course of treatments. I have even worn shorts this summer for the first time in years! Cheryl I am so pleased with the results I will be back for some laser lipo treatments next.* Thanks so much."
My Legs Don’t Wobble Anymore!
Mrs Henshaw Epsom
"I recently realised i needed to change. I joined a gym two years ago and began exercising for the first time in over twenty years and I feel great for it but I could not lose my stubborn love handles. What I couldn’t lose in two years has nearly disappeared after ten sessions of ‘4D Cavi’ inch loss treatment….. money well spent and I feel great."
My Love Handles Are Going!
Alan Banstead
"My wife first had some treatments with Cheryl at Body Beautiful Surrey and was very impressed with the treatment and attentive service. I could see the difference in my wife’s shape after just a few sessions so thought I’d have a try myself as I was struggling to improve the shape around my lower abdomen. We are both extremely impressed and happy customers."
