Frequently Asked Questions

No. It is best to keep your body temperature as low as possible.  Although diet and exercise are highly encouraged for a healthy lifestyle, we recommend minimal movement when wearing our products.

You may experience any of the following side effects: tenderness to the touch after use (to the treated areas), tingling sensations on the treated areas, redness on the treated areas, and numbing sensation from the cold (usually subsides after 10 minutes).These are all temporary and usually resolve within minutes.

Our products use a unique fat freezing process that works on almost all body types. Women who are pregnant should avoid using our system, but otherwise it is an effective process for anyone with stubborn pockets of fat under the skin. Our ideal candidate, however, is within 20% of their ideal body weight.

The first few minutes can feel a bit cold. Within about ten minutes, however, your body will numb and adapt to the sensation.

 

Once the fat cells have been damaged, they will be permanently removed from your body via the lymphatic system. However, in order to maintain these results and avoid new fat from forming, you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. If you gain weight there will be less cells in the targeted areas, making it harder to gain fat in those areas.

 

Our products do not specifically aid in weight loss.  They are fat loss systems. When you lose weight, you lose weight from all over your entire body. Our products target specific areas. Its primary purpose is to help you lose fat in stubborn areas. The amount will be quite minimal, but when measured as circumference (waist, thighs, etc) it will be noticeable.However, due to the cold-thermogenesis effects, you may likely lose some weight.

Although you can use the products daily, we do not recommend it.  It is recommended that you do it 2-3 times per week with days off in between.

By starting slowly, your body will begin to acclimate to the fat freezing process

Our products will start working as soon as treated area has reached the proper temperature and remained at that temperature for the appropriate amount of time. When you are done using it, the area should be cold to the touch and the skin will likely be pink in color.

 

Yes, when used as directed there are no severely adverse or long-term side effects.

 

We cannot promise a standard set of results, and results will vary based on each user. However, we are confident that you will be happy with the results you get after using our products as instructed. The results will be subtle but will show their full potential after 3-4 months.  This is because it takes some time for the fat cells to be flushed from your body via the lymphatic system.

 

Our products are meant to be worn whenever you have the time. Such flexibility is what enables you to fit the fat freezing process into your busy schedule.

However, you should minimize using them right after you have eaten, directly out of the shower, or immediately before, during, or after a workout.

Every individuals body is different.  We believe using the product for extended periods of time will eventually lead to diminishing returns.  In other words, it will likely not work as well.

However, our products are fairly new so we will update this data as we learn more.

After using the wrap, we highly recommend a simple massage in a circular (or rolling) motion for 1-2 minutes. Be very gentle. This helps break down the damaged fat cells. We highly recommend using a body lotion with the massager. The massager also works well in the shower for any areas with cellulite. If massager is uncomfortable, massaging with your hands (without massager) can also be effective.

If you bought our thigh or arm systems, you will use the rolling massager.   This massager does not require lotion.

Tightening the wrap may seem foreign at first but it’s very simple. To tighten, simply undo the Velcro with your right  hand and pull the outer layer of the wrap to your left. At the same time, use your left hand to pull the inner layer of the wrap to the right. Re-adhere the Velcro.

Do not treat the same area twice in a day. However, this is totally fine if you want to treat separate areas.  You may, however, need extra gel packs. Please contact us if you need some.

No, we do not recommend this.  Please read all safety documentation before use.

The belt was actually designed around a smaller person’s body, but we also designed it so it can fit all body types.  Also – once it is on – it is surprisingly less large than you may think. The excess neoprene is actually beneficial towards insulating the treated area.

No.  Our caliper is fully functional and does not include a slider.   If you do a Google search of ‘bodyfat calipers’, you will find that its a very common caliper design

Please be patient. Our products usually take much longer than 1 month to see results.  Results truly show at 10-12 weeks.  Some users do see some initial results at around 3 weeks, but for most people it will not.  Your body has to flush out the damaged fat cells via the lymphatic system.  Unfortunately, it can take a significant amount of time.

We offer a 90 day money back guarantee, as long as you contact us directly.  We sell our products on many channels (ie eBay, Amazon) and they are often restricted by a 30-day guarantee.  If you have any issues, simply contact us directly.  We are willing to refund up to 90-days post-purchase.

The tape measure is designed this way on purpose. This is to account for the width of the
plastic mechanism (that contours to your body). The tape is completely accurate.

We do not have data that supports that daily use will bring faster results.  The results are limited to how quickly you body flushes out damaged fat cells — which usually takes 10-12 weeks.  We highly recommend using the product every other day, ~3 times per week.

Using it daily also is difficult because the gel packs need to be adequately frozen.

Daily use can also cause an inflammatory response in some people, making it difficult to track results.

The outermost pocket (furthers from your skin) is designed so you can slowly adapt to the products.  We ask that you use this pocket in your first few sessions so your body can adapt.   Once adjusted, you can move the gel packs to the innermost pocket where they will be insulated by the plastic piece.   This information is explained in each product’s instructions.

Please do not do this unless you’re completely confident with our  products and your body’s reaction to them.   Every individuals tolerance is different.  Please make sure you’ve consulted with a physician before attempting this.

We believe this can be dangerous as it may trigger cold-induced complications such as cold urticaria (if you’re predisposed to it).

Frequently Asked Questions - Gel Packs

It is impossible for the gel packs to freeze “less” with age. For that to happen, they would have to have an increase in their antifreeze element (propylene glycol).

We have had numerous customers send us their gel packs, insisting that they no longer can freeze them. In 100% of the cases, the gel packs froze completely fine within our freezers.

Gel packs freezing properly depends on where the gel packs are within the freezer (please try to spread them out), how often you’re opening the freezer, and if they are laid flat or not.

Please remember the gel packs can wick heat from each other so it is best to have them spread out. Also make sure your freezer is set its coldest possible setting.

We can replace gel packs upon request, but please remember this is rarely a solution.

Yes, absolutely. Fat freezing, also known as cryolipolysis, is more about cooling the skin and underlying fat to a temperature range (and maintaining it). Once the area is cooled, the gel packs serve as a mechanism to wick heat from the tissue (and maintain it at a steady temperature) while the neoprene insulates the area. Simply wear the belt as instructed. It is completely normal.

We recommend 24 hours. This is simply so you can see what they look like when they are fully frozen. The gel packs may freeze quicker than this, but we recommend 24 hours for the first time simply so you can see how they should look when fully frozen. They should turn a lighter color of blue and be fairly solid but also slightly flexible.

Yes. The gel packs are formulated differently than regular gel packs. They have been designed to do three things: reach ideal temperatures (for fat cell apoptosis), wick and distribute body heat, and remain flexible when frozen. They have undergone extensive testing (with a thermocouple) to make sure they reach optimal fat freezing temperatures while avoiding risk of frostbite. They contain proprietary non-toxic ingredients.

Please contact us and we will happily send you a replacement. Small punctures can be easily fixed with packaging tape – however, we will replace anything. Just email us at info@isavera.com.

Unfortunately, we do not yet have them for sale. We can however look into sending extra gel packs upon request. Simply email us and we will help you out.

When are gel packs are fullyWhen are gel packs are fully frozen, they will be whitish in color and firm (yet slightly flexible). They should look like this frozen, they will be whitish in color and firm (yet slightly flexible).  They should look like this.

We recommend freezing the gel packs for at least 24 hours because this helps establish a baseline — it will show you what the gel packs will look like at their maximum freezing potential. They should turn white and be slightly flexible.

We recommend freezing the gel packs at 0° F for 24 – 48 hours. You will then see what they look like fully frozen.

Because every freezer is different, your objective is to simply get the gel packs to appear as they did after a solid freezing. They will be blue with a whitish appearance, and slightly flexible.
