What is the Fat Freezing or Cryolipolysis Treatment?
Cryolipolysisis a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that reduces fat cells in targeted body areas. The treatment is more often named “Fat Freezing.”
Cryolipolysis uses a device to cool the target area of the body to a temperature that freezes the fat cells, causing the cells to die.
The dead fat cells are then gradually eliminated through natural metabolic processes.
Is Cryolipolysis treatment safe for the body?
Cryolipolysis is generally considered a safe treatment for the body when performed by a qualified and experienced professional.
It is a non-invasive procedure that does not require surgery, incisions, or anaesthesia, which reduces the risk associated with more invasive fat-reduction techniques.
Cryolipolysis was first introduced as a cosmetic treatment in the beauty industry around 2009. Researchers at Harvard University developed the specific technique of using controlled cooling to reduce the body’s fat cells.
Since then, Cryolipolysis has gained popularity and has become a widely recognized non-surgical fat reduction treatment in the beauty industry.
What areas of the body can be treated with fat freezing?
Chin/Double Chin: Fat freezing can address excess fat in the chin area and reduce the appearance of a double chin.
Abdomen: Fat freezing can target excess fat in the abdominal area, including the upper and lower abdomen.
Flanks/Love Handles: The sides of the waist, often referred to as love handles or flanks, can be treated with fat freezing to reduce the bulges in those areas.
Thighs: Fat freezing can be used on the inner and outer thighs to address areas of stubborn fat deposits.
Back: Bulges and excess fat on the back, including the upper and lower back, can be targeted with fat freezing.
Upper Arms: Fat freezing can help reduce localized fat deposits in the upper arms, commonly known as “bingo wings.”
Bra Line: Fat freezing can target the fat deposits around the bra line area on the back.
On average, clients should expect a 20-40% fat reduction after a single treatment. However, the Fat Freezing method is not a weight-loss treatment but is beneficial for clients who lead a healthy lifestyle.
It is primarily designed to reduce localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Maintaining a balanced diet and regular exercise routine is essential for overall weight management and a healthy body.
Before & After
Are there alternative treatments for fat reduction?
Yes, alternative treatments are available for fat reduction besides Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing).
Here are some commonly used non-surgical treatments alternatives:
The process begins with a consultation with one of our experienced aesthetic therapists.
They will evaluate your areas of concern, discuss your goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for Cryolipolysis.
During the treatment, a specialized device is used to cool the targeted area(s) of Fat.
First, a special membrane on the targeted area will be applied to protect the skin from frost damage. Then, the freezing cups with vacuum suction will be placed on the treated area.
The Device applies controlled cooling to the skin surface, effectively targeting the underlying fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. Fat-freezing machines use temperatures between -7C to -10C on average.
Depending on how big the treatment area is, freezing cups can be used in different capacities and times—more extensive area – bigger cups and more prolonged treatment.
*Results may vary and be different for each individual.
Cryolipolysis effect: The cooling process induces a phenomenon known as Cryolipolysis, where cold temperatures selectively damage the fat cells. Fat cells are more vulnerable to freezing than surrounding tissues, such as skin and muscle.
Apoptosis & Elimination: Following Cryolipolysis, the damaged fat cells undergo a natural cell death process called apoptosis. Over time, the body’s immune system recognizes these damaged cells and gradually eliminates them through the liver and lymphatic systems.
Gradual results:As the eliminated fat cells are metabolized and flushed out of the body, you may notice a gradual reduction in the treated area over several weeks to months. The results become more apparent as the body’s natural processes complete the fat cell elimination.
It’s important to note that Fat Freezing targets localized areas of Fat and is not intended for overall weight loss. Still, it will help shape your body during weight loss programs and exercise.
The procedure is most effective for individuals near their ideal body weight but with specific areas of stubborn Fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Is Fat Freezing Safe?
Fat Freezing, or Cryolipolysis, is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced therapist.
Before treatment, we recommend a free consultation where our experienced practitioner will assess your needs and create the best program for you.
What areas of the body can be treated with Fat Freezing?
Typical zones ideal for fat-freezing treatment:
Bingo wings (upper arms)
Upper & lower abdomen
Love handles (pocket fat on the waistline)
Fat pockets on the back
How long does one session take?
15 minutes for the double chin and 45 minutes to 1 hour for body areas.
How many treatments will I need?
Only one treatment is required per area. However, some clients need additional treatments after 8-12 weeks to achieve their goals. After one session, clients can expect a 20-40% fat reduction in the treated area.
Can I have multiple areas treated during one session?
Yes, it’s possible. It will depend on the Fat Freezing equipment used for the treatment. At our clinic, we can use two freezing cups simultaneously. It means that two different areas can be treated at the same time —the Upper and lower abdomen, arms, love handles, and two sides of the back.
When will I start seeing results after fat freezing?
After a fat-freezing treatment, the results typically become noticeable gradually over time.
Total results: It may take up to 4 months, or even longer, to see the full effects of fat freezing. This is because the body needs time to eliminate the treated fat cells.
What is the recovery time after one session?
The Fat Freezing Cryolipolysis procedure is non-surgical, and typically clients can return to normal activities almost immediately. Sometimes, clients can experience minor skin sensitivity and numbness. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within a few days or weeks.
Are the results of fat freezing permanent?
The results of fat freezing, or Cryolipolysis, are considered long-term. Still, it’s essential to understand that the treatment does not prevent future weight gain or the development of new fat cells.
Are there any side effects or risks associated with fat freezing?
The results of Fat Freezing, or Cryolipolysis, are considered long-term. Still, it’s essential to understand that the treatment does not prevent future weight gain or the development of new fat cells.
There are possibly mild side effects after treatment. Common side effects after fat freezing may include temporary redness, bruising, swelling, numbness, or discomfort in the treated area. These side effects are typically mild and subside within a few days or weeks.
Can fat freezing help with weight loss?
Very important to understand that fat freezing is not for weight loss. It is designed to target localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and body weight is crucial for long-term results and overall well-being.
