How Does Fat Freeze Work?
At Qutis Clinics we specialise in body contouring treatments through permanently reducing unwanted pockets of fat with CoolSculpting’s cryolipolysis (freezing fat cells) technology. CoolSculpting is the only clinically proven and safe way to permanently destroy unwanted fat cells through the use of specialised freezing technology, without surgical intervention.
An individual develops all of their subcutaneous/ adipose fat cells from birth up to their mid 20’s, at which point the body no longer produces any new fat cells. The fat cells in the body from your mid 20’s onwards are then subject to either expand or shrink with diet and exercise, however there is no organic way to permanently remove these cells. This is where CoolSculpting comes in as the treatment is able to specifically target unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat, freeze them in a very controlled way causing the cells to become unstable ultimately resulting in apoptosis (cellular death).
Patients can begin seeing results after just one treatment, however may require between two and six treatments depending on individual body type, lifestyle, diet and genetic disposition towards carrying more or less fat. Our trained consultants will guide you through how many treatments you need during your initial consultation. To get started contact us today!
What are the benefits of fat freezing?
The idea of fat freezing may seem unusual or even a little scary, but once you understand how it works, you’ll see that it can be an effective way to trim away your unwanted pockets of fat. Fat freezing uses precise cooling technology to target your unwanted fat, destroying fat cells permanently.
Fat removal through CoolSculpting has been clinically proven safe by multiple peer reviewed studies and has minimal side effects as it is non-invasive, therefore little to no recovery time is required.
CoolSculpting allows you to take control of your body shape by removing localised fat pockets, leaving behind a smooth and contoured waist, thighs, jawline, arms, back and legs that you’ll love.
Who is suitable for fat freezing?
CoolSculpting is suitable for anyone with stubborn, unwanted fat they are unable to lose through diet and exercise. We see beautiful results with tummy treatments, back fat, love handles and ‘man boobs’ but it is also used by patients in other areas of their body where fat removal is required. If you have specific areas of concern, please speak to one of our team today about which treatments would be most appropriate for you.
How can it help me achieve my desired body shape?
CoolSculpting has become one of our most popular treatments. What makes it different from other popular body contouring methods is that it’s non-invasive. In fact, it delivers carefully controlled cooling to target your fat cells and break them down. These cells are frozen and permanently destroyed; you can remove them for good!
Because it only targets fat cells, it can help you sculpt your body into shape by removing stubborn pockets of fat. It’s great for those who don’t want to undergo invasive surgery or take dangerous pills in order to lose weight.
It’s also a fantastic alternative for people who are looking for a less painful alternative to liposuction, as well as those who have had bad experiences with liposuction in the past.
If you find yourself struggling with little success from diet and exercise alone, take advantage of our free consultation today! We can tell you if CoolSculpting is right for you.
How many sessions will I need?
A typical fat freezing treatment session can range from 2 hours to a full day depending on your treatment plan. We can treat multiple areas in one treatment session or simply focus on one area at a time. Remember, the final results take 12 weeks to be seen therefore some patients’ prefer to have as many areas treated as possible in their first treatment session so they can achieve their desired results as soon as possible! Your treatment plan will be very specific to you and discussed collaboratively between your specialised practitioner and yourself during your consultation.
The length of your fat freezing treatment plan will depend on what part of your body you want to treat. The number of treatments required will be dependent on the amount of unwanted fat you have and the results you wish to obtain. Each treatment session will permanently kill an average of 27% of unwanted fat cells within the targeted treatment area.
Your frozen fat cells should begin to break down within two weeks following your treatment and the treatment results can be seen as soon as four weeks post treatment.
Is it painful?
Pain is a very subjective topic, however the most common and shortest answer is No as CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical fat removal treatment. No needles or anesthesia are required, and therefore very little to no pain is involved. You can resume your normal activities immediately following your treatment. There may be mild soreness for a day or two and you can expect to feel numb in the treated area for 2-6 weeks post treatment. However, once that is gone you’ll be left with toned body contours that are visibly different to before your treatment.
