Fat Freezing is a non-invasive procedure that uses cooling technology to reduce localized body fat.
A handheld vacuum device, with cooling plates, is positioned on the selected body area, which freezes the tissue to -6˚C. Fat cells are far more susceptible to the cold than other cells so they begin to crystallize and breakdown, without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The destroyed fat cells are absorbed and expelled by the body, leaving the treated area to shrink over the course of the following weeks. Fat Freezing can take up to 2-8 weeks to see the full results.
Some patients achieve significant fat removal and changes to their body contours in just one treatment. Others need a course of treatment.
This one-off treatment is ideal for love handles, lower and upper tummies, inner thighs, back of the arms, and chin.
To date, there have been more than eight million fat-freezing treatments performed worldwide. Unlike liposuction, which can require anesthesia and comes with risks of bleeding or serious infection, Fat Freezing is a relatively safe in-office procedure, with minimal pain and no downtime.
The treatment itself takes 30 to 60 minutes per application, and multiple applications may be needed to cover an area.
The most common side effects of treatment include redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, numbness, or darkening of the treated area. Most of these side effects, if present, will resolve within several hours after treatment.
Results can be seen as soon as two weeks, with maximum benefit seen at approximately three months. The average reduction in fat ranges from about 10% to 40% per round of treatment, and there is no evidence of any body-wide side effects. A second round of treatment may be needed after several months, depending on the desired results.
Cryolipolysis appears to be a safe and effective treatment for fat loss without the downtime of liposuction or surgery. But it is important to note that cryolipolysis is intended for fat loss, not weight loss. The ideal candidate has stubborn, pinchable areas of fat that are difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise. Cryolipolysis also doesn’t target visceral fat, so it won’t improve your overall health. But it may help you fit into your favorite pair of skinny jeans.
