Fat freezing in Newcastle City

Fat freezing is the common name for cryolipolysis, the latest non-surgical lipo treatment to target problem areas. A viable alternative to liposuction, fat freezing is an almost futuristic body-sculpting treatment that is popular among celebrities.

Different from other non-surgical treatments that use lasers, this modern, non-invasive treatment cools the fat in each targeted area of the body and completely destroys the fat cells. When cooled to a controlled temperature, fat cells will simply crystallise and die.

Cryolipolysis was designed and developed by Harvard Medical School dermatologists. Their research found fat cells were more responsive to the effects of cold than the surrounding tissue.

Benefits of fat freezing Newcastle City based

The beauty of fat freezing is that there’s no pain and no recovery time. Because there’s no downtime after a treatment, you can carry on with your normal activities straight afterwards.

The treatment has effective results, with a reduction of between 25% and 40% fat per treatment area. The results are also natural-looking. It is the most effective body treatment to reduce stubborn fat cells without having surgery.

The cooling technology isn’t painful and the treatent is suitable for people of all genders and ages. The results are long-lasting, with gradual changes occurring in your body shape for months after the treatment.

What does fat freezing involve?

Cryolipolysis targets stubborn areas of fat that can otherwise be hard to treat, such as the stomach, chin, back and arms. Each cryolipolysis session lasts around one to two hours. While being treated, some people enjoy catching up on their favourite Netflix series, others read a good book – or even just have a nap.

The fat freezing procedure uses controlled cooling to a temperature range of below –9°C. The fat cells are destroyed through a natural process called apoptosis. Other cells in the body are not as sensitive to fat freezing as the fat cells, so are therefore unaffected.

The fat cells leave the body through the lymphatic system after they have been destroyed. Stubborn areas of the body can be treated, such as love handles, bingo wings, back fat, upper arms, upper and lower abdomen, buttocks, flanks and outer and inner thighs.

Because fat cells crystallise at different temperatures from other cells, fat freezing is specific in breaking down the fat cells while sparing the other tissue such as the skin, nerve fibres and muscle mass.

The results of cryolipolysis can be seen in as little as two weeks, although it can take up to four months to feel the full effects. Clinical trials, before and after photos and celebrity reviews support the effectiveness of fat freezing.

How many sessions are needed?

One session is usually enough for most areas of the body. One of the main advantages of cryolipolysis is that it doesn’t require a course of treatment for the average person.

Depending on the individual’s personal goals and the thickness of the fat, the treatment may be repeated in the same area a second time, but this isn’t a necessity.

When a further reduction is required in the same area, it is better to wait for between 45 and 60 days between sessions. This enables an assessment to measure how effective the initial treatment has been.

What will the results be?

While clinical studies have shown fat reduction of between 20% and 40%, the results will depend on the individual, how thick the fat deposits are in each area and the person’s lifestyle after the treatment. RT Aesthetics practices fat freezing in Newcastle City and says those people who follow the aftercare advice will see the best results.

A company spokesperson said: “The changes happen over a number of weeks. The estimated time to see maximum results is usually twelve weeks. However, some of our clients start to notice a change at around two weeks. In clinical trials, twelve weeks after treatment, 90% of people saw a noticeable reduction in fat in the treated area.

“During the session, you will feel a ‘tug’ near the treated area. This is due to the ‘vacuum’ effect that holds the area in place during the session. There will also be a cold feeling at the vacuum site at the beginning of the procedure.

“It feels unusual, but isn’t painful. Clients often fall asleep during their session. No numbing agent or aneasthetic is required during the treatment.”

Is there an ideal candidate for cryolipolysis Newcastle City based?

Although cryolipolysis can be carried out on a person of any age or size, it is particularly useful for local fat reduction. The most suitable candidate is someone who wishes to reduce fat deposits localised in specific problem areas.

These are commonly the abdomen, hips, upper arms, thighs, flanks and lower back. These areas can be stubborn when it comes to losing weight by normal exercise and diets. Fat freezing isn’t an overall weight loss solution. The ideal candidate is someone who is quite near their ideal body weight, but who has localised areas of fat.

People in this category will see the most successful results. Once the results have been achieved, this can be a great motivator to make lifestyle changes to keep the weight off and live in a healthier fashion.

Do candidates need to follow a diet and exercise programme?

Diet plans and exercise are not essential for the treatment to work, but cryolipolysis should not be used as a substitute for looking after your body. The treatment can be considered an investment in looking better that may encourage you to make lifestyle changes afterwards to maintain the look.

Combining fat freezing with a healthier diet and exercise will maximise the results. As part of the after care advice, we suggest increasing your water intake and avoiding caffeine and other toxins to support your body’s natural processes.
