Fat freezing has become ever more popular recently and especially in the aftermath of the pandemic with enquiries about the treatment rocketing in salons. It sounds gruesome but many are turning to this revolutionary treatment to non-surgically remove stubborn areas of body fat that simply just won’t shift despite diet and exercise.
Whether you’re looking to enhance your natural shape, get rid of stubborn areas, or just feel more comfortable in your clothes, you don’t need to resort to expensive surgery with hideously long down times. Fat freezing could well be the answer!
WHAT IS FAT FREEZING…
Fat freezing is a non-invasive method of fat reduction to allow you to recontour your body. It does exactly what it sounds like, fat cells are frozen for a period of time in the aim to reduce them permanently and is comparable to a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. After extensive research in 2007 scientists at Harvard Medical School discovered that fat cells within the body die off at a higher temperature than other skin tissue. This breakthrough led to the knowledge that if the surrounding skin tissue is cooled down to a certain temperature for a specific time, fat cells can be killed off without damaging other cells. This made this technology ideal for targeting specific stubborn pockets of fat within the body such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks and/or upper arms. The body then gets rid of these dead fat cells through its natural waste system (lymphatic drainage).
DOES IT HURT?
The Fat freezing treatment itself is pain free and allows you to return to daily life immediately after treatment. The hand piece is placed on the area to be treated and you will feel some tightness caused by the vacuum pressure and some localized cold which disappears after a few minutes. A small percentage experience temporary discomfort in the period after treatment as the frozen fat cells break up and are naturally removed from the body.
SOUNDS INTERESTING, BUT WHAT’S THE BEST TECH?
Whilst fat freezing is generally risk free when performed by a professional it’s always important to do your research as to the best technology for the job. No surgery means no downtime and who better to go to than the best of the best. Global front runners CoolTech and CoolSculpting have undergone extensive clinical research and regulatory tests to ensure their technology achieves the maximum in efficiency and safety. CoolTech has an inbuilt controlled cooling system, which means that in just one 70-minute session you can remove 30% of the fat cells in your chosen area and an additional 25% in a further second session.
Your CoolTech treatment will be able to advise how many sessions are required but on average most clients have 1 to 3 sessions on the same area every 6 to 8 weeks. This allows you to create an entirely bespoke treatment depending on your desired results.
