Cryolipolysis is known as several names such as Fat Freezing, Cryogenic Lipolysis, and the most common name is Coolsculpting.
As it’s a procedure done by a professional, it can selectively target anywhere, such as tummy, thighs, or arms, so that the patient can choose their problematic areas.
What is fat freezing?
It is exactly what it sounds like - the method of freezing fat to destroy fat cells.
Fat cells are frozen for a period of time with the objective to reduce and destroy the targeted cells and it’s a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. It originated after research was done into frostbite, and it was noted that fat cells would freeze before skin freezes.
The treated fat cells are crystallized by the cool temperature and this causes them to expire and naturally and permanently be eliminated from the body via the lymphatic system. Each treatment decreases the number of fat cells in the targeted area.
How is the procedure done?
How it’s done is we place a protection cover called a membrane, over the targeted area. This sheet is similar to a wet wipe and protects the skin during the treatment. Once the pods are placed on the desired area, the fat freezing begins. The duration of this treatment is about 30 minutes.
How many sessions does one need to see results?
Results are visible within four weeks. The recommended time between each treatment is 30 days. Some clients require only one treatment on a specified area, while others require more.
Is it safe and are there any complications?
This noninvasive alternative to liposuction has very low risks. There is a slight risk of freezer burn as the skin is exposed to subzero temperatures but this is reduced by using the membrane. Slight redness, bruising, and tenderness may also occur on the skin but it fades away in a day or two.
How much localized fat can one expect to lose from fat freezing and when will I start to notice results?
Our clients have lost up to 11 pounds per treatment and most clients loose between 2cm and 4.5 inches on the day of treatment. The fat is lost over the 30 days. We do need to keep in mind that everyone is different, and the loss is dependent on the body type and lifestyle.
Will my skin sag after losing the fat?
No, the fat is removed over a period of time and therefore allows your body and skin to adjust itself. We recommend afterwards that you do our Fire and Ice treatment which combines fat freeze with radio frequency and cavitation. This will also help you to reach your fat loss goals faster and also tightens the skin.
Is fat freezing permanent?
Yes, the fat cells are permanently removed from the body. This is the perfect treatment to not only get rid of stubborn fat cells but also help kick-start a healthier lifestyle. Popular requested areas include belly fat, inner thighs, chin and lower back.
