CLATUU 360° FREEZE
Treatments that remove love handles and muffins tops, thins thighs, flattens your stomach and shapes your body for a slimmer, tighter shape – Naturally
Freeze away fat with the ultimate non-invasive body sculpting solution
Muffin tops, post-baby pouch, love handles, back fat, saddle bags, tuckshop arms, no-one likes these words, but the fact is many people have these troublesome areas of fat that just won’t budge, no matter how clean and carefully they eat or how many hours they spend exercising each week. However, About Face Brisbane has the answer to these common problems by offering their valued patients the best non-surgical fat reduction treatment available called CLATUU 360° FREEZE.
The CLATUU fat removal procedure uses a vacuum applicator to draw in skin and fat and cool the tissue in the cooling cup at temperatures of up to -9°C. The fat removal procedure is for targeted fat reduction in a focus area, rather than an overall body fat loss solution.
CLATUU fat removal treatments expect to permanently remove 20-30% of the localised fat in the treated area. As with all procedures, visible results vary from person to person.
What is CLATUU 360 Freeze?
CLATUU 360° FREEZE is a treatment that uses precisely controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that is resilient to exercise or diet. It causes a permanent reduction in the number of subcutaneous (under the skin) fat cells by freezing them, without causing damage to the surrounding cells or tissue. This non-invasive treatment selectively targets localised bulges of fat that have not responded to exercise and a good diet in areas such as the back, abdomen, and flanks/sides.
Although the science behind the treatment has been understood for a while now, developments in technology have led to more precise clinical results being achieved with a more affordable price tag – and this is what CLATUU 360° FREEZE is all about. CLATUU 360° FREEZE gives superior results to older, more traditional treatments that freeze fat cells (such as CoolSculpting) due to the advanced 360° precise cooling handpieces. This means the CLATUU 360° FREEZE handpieces delivers more even cooling across the treatment area, which gives far better results than traditional fat reduction treatments that use cooling technology.
How does CLATUU 360° FREEZE work?
CLATUU 360° FREEZE works by gently drawing fat bulges into the applicators and cooling them to -9 degrees Celsius. This temperature destroys fat cells in the treatment area while leaving normal cells intact. The fat cells are then safely and naturally eliminated from the body via its regular waste removal processes. This results in a gradual reduction in the size of the treated area’s fat layer.
If you want measurable, visible and long-lasting body sculpting results without surgery, CLATUU 360° FREEZE is the treatment you need. Typically, 25-30% of the fat cells are eliminated (forever!) from the each treatment area in just one session.
What areas can be treated?
The most commonly treated areas are:
- the abdomen (upper and lower)
- the flanks/sides (the not-so-lovable ‘love handles’).
However, many other areas can be treated, such as:
- the thighs (inner and outer – bye bye saddle-bags!)
- along the bra line
- the male chest.
How do I know if I’m a good candidate for CLATUU 360° FREEZE?
CLATUU 360° FREEZE is perfect for adults of all genders who have stubborn fat bulges that just won’t budge no matter how many gym sessions or low-calorie diets are undertaken. It’s very popular with women who’d like to get rid of their post-pregnancy belly and with men who would like to lose their ‘spare tyre.’ Unfortunately, CLATUU 360° FREEZE isn’t recommended for obese individuals, as it’s a body contouring treatment, not a weight-loss solution.
What happens before, during and after treatment?
Before your treatment:
Before your treatment, you’ll have a consultation with Dr Colin Campey, About Face Brisbane’s highly qualified and experienced doctor. During this consultation, Dr Campey will discuss your areas of concern and expectations thoroughly with you, and develop a tailored treatment plan. It may take as little as one treatment session to achieve your goals.
You may wish to proceed with your treatment immediately after this consultation, or you may prefer to book in for the treatment at a later date – either option is completely fine, and there is no obligation to commence treatment after the initial consultation.
During your treatment:
You’ll sit or lie back in a comfortable position on a chair in one of our treatment rooms and the Matrix Gel Pad gel pad and applicator head will be expertly placed on the treatment area or areas. When the CLATUU 360° FREEZE machine is turned on, you may feel some pulling, tugging and/or mild pinching at first. This is because the machine uses a vacuum to draw the fatty tissue up into the applicator head. It’s likely that for the first five or ten minutes, you’ll feel intense cold in the treatment area as the applicator head begins to freeze the targeted fat. This is how you know it’s working its magic! These sensations are very tolerable and after five or ten minutes they will subside.
During the treatment, you can check your emails, watch some Netflix, read, or even enjoy having some time to yourself and have a nap! Our caring staff will bring you a drink and make sure you’re warm enough – the treatment can feel a little chilly at first!
During this treatment, 20% to 25% of the fat cells in the treatment areas will be damaged (but rest assured, the surrounding normal cells and skin will not be affected). There are no needles, no incisions and no need for anaesthetic.
After forty minutes to one hour, the machine will be turned off, and the applicator head and gel pad will be removed. The treated area will then be gently massaged.
After your treatment:
There is no downtime and no after-care required, so you can return to your regular daily activities immediately after the treatment session finished.
Visible results appear within 4 to 12 weeks after your treatment, but continuous improvements will be seen for up to a further three months.

Other common questions
What is the science behind the treatment?
The science behind the procedure is called apoptosis. The medical definition of apoptosis is ‘the death of cells which occurs as a normal and controlled part of an organism’s growth or development’. It’s important to know that fat cells are far more vulnerable to the effects of cooling than other types of cells and tissue.
CLATUU 360° FREEZE harnesses the power of cooling by chilling fat cells to a temperature where the body’s natural apoptosis processes begin. In one session of CLATUU 360° FREEZE, between 20% and 25% on average of the fat cells in the treated area are damaged and then gradually and naturally eliminated from your body over the following 4-12 weeks. As a result, the fat deposits in the treated area are reduced in size (dramatically!), with no effect on the surrounding tissue or skin.
Is it safe?
Yes, it s completely safe. Fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to cooling than other surrounding cells or tissues, which means CLATUU 360° FREEZE safely eliminates fat cells without causing any damage to other cells or tissue – it is completely safe.
In addition, CLATUU uses a special Matrix Gel Pad which ensures maximum skin protection during treatment.
Are there any side effects?
The technologically advanced CLATUU 360° FREEZE machine has built-in safety sensors that maintain a specific, constant temperature that only affects fat cells. This prevents any unwanted side effects.
What is the difference between weight loss and fat reduction?
You might find it interesting to learn that losing weight is not the same thing as losing fat. What happens to the fat cells is very different.
Sometime during our teenage years, the quantity of adipocyte (fat) cells in our bodies becomes fixed. When we lose weight, we don’t actually lose or get rid of fat cells – the fat cells just shrink in size. When the figures on the scales start to creep up, the fat cells get bigger.
In contrast, CLATUU 360° FREEZE actually gets rid of fat cells – it doesn’t make fat cells smaller, it reduces (permanently) the quantity of total fat cells in the treated area by between 20% and 25%. These fat cells are gone for good! They won’t move to other areas of your body or be re-deposited but will be processed and eliminated from your body by its natural waste elimination processes.
What is the difference between CLATUU 360° FREEZE and CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting achieves great body sculpting results – but the results CLATUU can help you achieve are even better, as CLATUU 360° FREEZE uses the latest and most advanced cooling technology available today. In addition, CoolSculpting machines only have one handpiece, meaning only one area (i.e. only one of your inner thighs, as an example) can be treated during a 60-minute session. However, CLATUU 360° FREEZE has dual handpieces, so it can treat two areas at once, saving you both time and money. These handpieces are the world’s first patented 360° applicators which provide more effective and faster fat reduction.
About Face Brisbane recommends CLATUU 360° FREEZE over CoolSculpting due to the superior results it provides (plus it saves you money!). However, we understand that some patients may prefer more traditional cooling-assisted fat reduction treatments, so we offer both CLATUU 360° FREEZE and CoolSculpting to meet all of our patient’s preferences.

What is the difference between CLATUU 360° FREEZE and liposuction?
CLATUU 360° FREEZE and liposuction produce fairly similar body sculpting results and they both remove fat cells. However, a CLATUU 360° FREEZE treatment session only takes one hour, there is no need for anaesthetic, and there is no surgery or downtime involved. There are no after-care requirements for the treated area/s, and no compression garments need to be worn. Liposuction is an invasive procedure involving aesthetic (twilight or general), incisions, and a moderate recovery period. Careful after-care is required following Liposuction, involving antibiotics to prevent infection of the incision sites and daily massage of the treated area, which can be quite painful. Following liposuction procedures, patients are required to wear a compression garment 24 hours a day (except when showering) for at least 4 weeks.
Liposuction may be preferable for patients who require more dramatic results than CLATUU 360° FREEZE can offer, or for treatment areas that CLATUU 360° FREEZE can’t be used on. CLATUU 360° FREEZE is great for people with modest fat bulges who want to avoid the downtime, after-care, medications and surgery involved with liposuction. Liposuction results can be seen almost immediately (once the bandages are removed and the swelling goes down), whereas CLATUU 360° FREEZE results take 4 to 12 weeks to become noticeable.
