Cristal Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing Non Invasive Lipo At Arasys, Cork ♥

 *I received complimentary treatment at Arasys but was not obliged to write a blog feature. All opinions expressed within this post are 100% my own.

If you've been a long-time follower of my blog and social media then you'll know that back in January last year I embarked on a new healthy living journey which involved me eating better and moving a whole lot more.

On January 26th 2018 I joined a gym for the first time in 10 years and I went on to lose 30lbs in weight by eating better (I can't diet and won't diet) and exercising a whole lot more. Yet, despite losing weight and feeling healthier and more confident in myself and my body, there are still two areas which are a both to me and which I'd like to improve on more - my arms and my stomach.

Everyone knows that pregnancy takes it's toll on a woman's body. Well, I've had two pregnancies carrying two almost 10lb babies (9lbs 8oz and 9lbs 11oz) and when you pair that with overeating for years and being obese, my stomach area has been through a lot and will never be the same again - but that doesn't mean I need to like it this way.

With each gym session I do I try to do 200-400 ab reps in a bid to tone up. I also do a lot of cardio to try to lose the visceral fat around my stomach and although it has reduced massively in size, I still feel like I need to lose weight and tone up a whole lot more in that area.

When I was invited along to Arasys, Cork to try out their Cristal Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing Non Invasive Lipo I was more than happy to go along and see how effective it was.

I've never had anything like this before and I'm under no illusion that this is some sort of alternative to going to the gym and exercising (if you follow me on Instagram you'll see that I'm out walking every morning and at the gym most days), but I was happy to give something a go that might improve my stomach area somewhat.

The treatment is done whilst you lie on a treatment table. It's comfortable, non-invasion and doesn't hurt as such. It can get a bit uncomfortable as the intensity is turned up (I think the highest is 5), but I have quite a high threshold after those two big baby births!

There are two suction pads - which I had placed on the area above each hip and these work to freeze the fat - quite evident once the treatment has finished too!

It's literally freezing your fat at a temperature of -8 I think.

Once the treatment is over the areas that the pads were working on are massaged. You have to drink a lot of water each day after the treatment as the fat is flushed out through the lymph system. Results are not immediate either, it can take between 6 to 8 weeks to see a difference.

I had my treatment on December 7th, so hopefully by January 18th I'll see an improvement in my stomach area and a loss in it's size.

The treatment takes an hour and is £599 for one session.

I'm all for anything that makes you feel good about yourself and your body so I was happy to be able to try out this treatment from Arasys. Thank you to the lovely staff at Arasys for having me!

I will update this post with results after 8 weeks.
