Fat Freezing Treatment – Everything You Need To Know

Dealing with stubborn body fat? If yes, you’re not alone. Most individuals go through the same issue, and it can be frustrating to follow a diet and exercise regime regularly and yet notice significant results at target areas.

This means that you have some stubborn fat cells that don’t seem to react well to your routine and clearly are going nowhere. Some try tons of massages, exercises and super food to help combat these issues. But what do you do when you see absolutely no results? The answer is simple: Cryolipolysis.

No, Cryolipolysis is not liposuction and nor is it any type of plastic surgery. Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment designed to help such people who struggle with stubborn fat on their bodies. No scars, no surgeries; just short sessions of cryolipolysis that go a long way.

What exactly is Cryolipolysis?

As mentioned above, this treatment was designed to help break down stubborn fat cells without using any invasive equipment or plastic surgery procedures. This procedure uses cold temperatures through a vacuum to help target adipocytes (fat cells) and break them down permanently. This treatment is used to help tone your body and get rid of any stubborn fat. It is not a substitute for liposuction or a solution for obesity.

How does it work?

This fat-freezing technique is performed at a licensed clinic or at a doctor’s office. The size and shape of the fatty area are first examined. The part of your body undergoing the treatment is then marked with a marker. A trained professional will use a vacuum applicator to perform the procedure. A gel pad will be applied to the concerned area to shield it from the cold temperature. The applicator will then be used to suction and vacuum the targetted area. 

Patients may feel a tugging, pulling, tingling or cramping sensation during the procedure, but that is completely normal, in fact it is a sign that the procedure is working. These sensations will calm down in the next 5-10 minutes. Your doctor/professional may also massage the area for 5-10 minutes to help break down the targetted cells.

How much fat can be lost through Cryolipolysis? And when can you expect to see results?

Studies and cases have shown that one can lose upto 15% to 28% on average during the first four months after initial treatment. But you may notice some changes as early as just 3 weeks after the treatment. In about 2 months, you will start noticing dramatic improvement.

What is the downtime to this procedure?

The best part about Cryolipolysis treatment is no downtime. It is also best to remember that this is no quick fix to fat loss but rest assured that you will soon start results, two to three weeks after your initial treatment.
