So how does Fat Freezing actually work?

Cryolipolysis, also known as 'Fat Freezing' is a procedure meant for fat reduction. Therefore, the ideal candidate for this procedure is the healthy one and almost near their ideal weight. It treats the stubborn fat pockets that are difficult to remove through diet and exercise only. Fat freezing targets specific areas.

Cryolipolysis can be used in a number of different areas of the body where there is excess fat. It is typically used on the abdomen, stomach and hips area, but can also be used under the chin and on the arms and legs.

Cryolipolysis doesn't work immediately, because the body's own natural processes are involved. So once the fat cells have been killed, the body starts to lose the excess fat. This process starts working instantly, but can take a few weeks before you start to fully see the effects and the true results that come with this treatment. This technique has also been found to reduce up to 20 to 25% of the fat in the target area, which is a considerable reduction of mass in the area!

So how does the process actually work?

A body contouring technique that works by freezing the subcutaneous fat tissue to kill fat cells in the body. Which in turn are then ejected using the body's own natural process. As a modern alternative to liposuction, it is instead a completely non-invasive technique that requires no surgery.

Cryolipolysis is carried out by using applicators that are placed on the specific area that is to be treated, and the skin and body in this area is then cooled down typically to below freezing temperatures. This then helps kill the fat cells in the area, but without damaging the skin.
