What is fat freezing and does it work?

Estimated reading time 3 minutes

Fat freezing is an innovative way to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Using cold temperatures, this treatment targets and freezes fat cells beneath the surface of your skin, which causes them to die. The body then naturally removes these dead fat cells from the tissues, resulting in a smoother appearance with less bulge.

The treatment can be done either with a machine or by injecting a specially formulated product into the affected area.

How does it work?

Fat freezing uses temperature to kill fat cells. With freezing temperatures, the size of fat cells increases, resulting in a puffy, short appearance. These enlarged cells appear less smooth and irregular.

The device that is used for fat freezing is a closed system, which means it will not freeze your skin or surrounding tissue. The cold temperature affects only the targeted fat cells, reducing their size and making them less noticeable.

The treatment isn’t invasive; you don’t have to undergo surgery or deal with downtime like recovery from liposuction or fillers. There may be some slight discomfort during the procedure depending on how sensitive you are to cold temperatures.

Fat freezing can get rid of fat in the upper arms, legs, and abdomen, but it’s not recommended to use it on the face.

How does it work? The treatment is quick. You can have fat freezing done in less than a minute. You don’t have to worry about being able to sleep after treatments because you will be able to go home as soon as possible. It’s important that you schedule your appointment with an Aesthetic Practitioner first to have the areas assessed.

The procedure is painless and free of complications. You’ll notice results as soon as one or two weeks after the treatment; you can expect to see a significant improvement in about four weeks.

How much does fat freezing cost?

A single treatment averages £500 to £600. A package of three sessions costs about £1,000, making it a more affordable option than liposuction and other invasive procedures. Because the treatment does not last as long as liposuction, you would have to undergo additional treatments for best results.

Are there any cons to having fat freezing done?

Skin treatments are not recommended if you have a recent injury, are pregnant or have sensitive skin. Fat freezing is best for people who have mild-to-moderate cellulite. If your cellulite is severe or your pores are large, fat freezing will not work as well. Some women prefer to avoid fat freezing because their skin tends to become more sensitive with age, so this treatment isn’t recommended for those over 65 years old.

Fat freezing takes about 45 minutes. You can expect to feel some slight tingling and mildly numb skin. Some patients experience some redness or minor swelling following their treatment. These side effects are temporary and do not require medical intervention.

If you’re interested in reducing your body fat, using fat freezing is a great solution. It can be used as part of your weight-loss regimen, or it can be combined with other aesthetic treatments to reduce the appearance of body fat and cellulite for better results. The treatment is painless, affordable, and effective, so you have nothing to lose!
