What Is Fat Freezing?
So, what is fat freezing? CoolSculpting, also known as cryolipolysis, a procedure that’s been proven to permanently eliminate fat cells by literally cooling them to a temperature at which they can no longer survive. But how does it work, and how do you get it done?
CoolSculpting works by delivering a controlled cooling sensation to your fat cells, which are then eliminated from your body naturally through your lymphatic system. The entire process can take as little as 3 hours, during which time you can read, listen to music or watch a movie. CoolSculpting treatment works best on problem areas like love handles, stomachs, arms and thighs, with visible results within a few weeks post treatment. It’s important to note that no area should be more than 10% of your bodyweight for any one session and you may require more than one treatment session for optimal results.
How Does Fat Freezing Work?
CoolSculpting relies on Cryolipolysis technology, a non-invasive and painless procedure that targets and destroys fat cells. Essentially, a CoolSculpting machine uses controlled cooling to crystallize and destroy unwanted fat cells in your body.
Fat cells, also known as adipocytes, which are specialised cells that hold excess calories within the fatty tissue, where they serve as a source of energy. This white adipose tissue (WAT) serves a crucial role in human biology: However, when there’s an overabundance of fat cells in your body, it can lead to serious health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
While most weight loss methods, such as diet and exercise, can help reduce your overall level of adipose tissue in your body, they’re not able to target excess fat cells directly. CoolSculpting Cryolipolysis technology allows you to safely and effectively target specific areas of WAT without surgery or downtime. In a study of more than 1,000 patients looking to treat stubborn belly fat, it was found that Cryolipolysis was able to remove 27% of treated fat cells after 6 months.
For optimal results, our experts may recommend more than one treatment session. Although even a single treatment with our experienced practitioners will bring you closer to achieving noticeable results. You’ll get to see your body transform!
So what are the benefits of CoolSculpting®?
There are a number of benefits to CoolSculpting® treatments. CoolSculpting® allows you to freeze stubborn bulges of fat that have been resistant to exercise and diet. And as a bonus, CoolSculpting® treatments also stimulate collagen production. Collagen helps to keep skin looking firm and smooth, which can make you look years younger.
To understand how CoolSculpting®works, it’s important to know what exactly happens during each treatment. Each session begins with a consultation before moving on to treatment.
Unlike some other non-invasive procedures, CoolSculpting® treatments are completely safe and scientifically proven. During your CoolSculpting® consultation and treatment you’ll be monitored by medical professionals to ensure that everything is done correctly.
The CoolSculpting® machine uses suction cups to freeze stubborn pockets of fat. These suction cups are placed strategically over your abdomen, flanks, and love handles to target that hard-to-reduce fat.
How Long Do Results Last From CoolSculpting® Treatments?
CoolSculpting® is designed to freeze and kill unwanted fat cells, which break down over time. In normal weight loss, your body can only burn off these extra fat storages for energy, shrinking the fat cells but not destroying them.
Over time, your body will naturally eliminate fat cells from CoolSculpting treatments. In one study, published in The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology , participants treated with cryolipolysis lost 3.3% of their total fat volume at six months and 4.5% at one year after treatment.
Results can be measured via circumference measurements taken around a patient’s body part being treated to see how much total volume of that area has been reduced since treatment.
If you gain weight, CoolSculpting® can remove it. However, if you don’t maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen after treatment, you could see some of your results lessen as the remaining fat cells can still expand.
