Fat Freeze: Eliminate Stubborn Fats Effectively

What is fat freezing treatment?

Fat freezing is a non-invasive body-shaping treatment that breaks down fat cells using cold temperature. It is considered as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction and can be used on areas like:

  • arms
  • thighs
  • back
  • abdomen
  • chin

How does fat freezing work?

Fat freeze treatment works by selectively freezing the fat tissue, without affecting the collagen and other components of the skin. It uses a controlled cooling mechanism to safely break down stubborn fat that don’t seem to go away regardless of all efforts through diet and exercise.

The medical term for fat freeze treatment is ‘cryolipolysis‘. It consists of several probes that enables the localised reduction of fatty tissue to achieve a better body contour. When the probe is placed on the targeted area, it creates a vacuum to pull the excess skin and the fatty tissue towards the inside of the probe.

During the treatment session, the probe brings down the temperate of the skin and fat within the temperature range of -5 to 5°C. The exposure to the freezing temperature induces death of the subcutaneous fat cells, without affecting the superficial layer of the skin and the surrounding tissue.

What happens during fat freezing treatment?

Before the fat freezing treatment

After the assessment by the doctor or the nurse therapist, the targeted area will be demarcated using a marker.

A film of gel pad will be placed on the area to protect the superficial layer of the skin to prevent burns.

In the first few minutes of the treatment, you may feel uncomfortable because of the intense cold and the suction by the probe(s).

After 5 to 10 minutes into the treatment, you will likely adjust and get used to the temperature and the suction.

Each treatment cycle takes about 60 minutes to complete.

After the fat freezing treatment

The post-treatment care is equally important to reap the maximum benefits of the fat freeze treatment.

Here at Radium Medical Aesthetics, our nurse therapist are trained to provide our proprietary post-treatment care.

This is so that the fat cells can be removed more quickly by your body and also to reduce any lumpiness or bruising on the skin that may occur during the treatment.

Over the next 4 to 6 weeks, your body will gradually remove the fat cells that have crystallised and destroyed by the treatment, reducing the overall circumference and appearance of the excess fat layer on your body.

Benefits of fat freezing treatment

  • Selectively eliminates stubborn adipose tissue
  • Works effectively with minimal downtime
  • Minimal health risks since it is a non-invasive procedure
  • Does not leave any surgical scar on the treated area(s)

Side effects of fat freezing treatment

You can expect to experience some or all of these mild side effects, such as:

  • Temporary skin redness
  • Numbness or dull pain at the treatment site
  • Swelling
  • Bruising

It is important to note that the effects of fat freezing treatment are temporary and will likely resolve after a day.

Frequently asked questions about fat freezing treatment in Singapore

Am I a good candidate for fat freezing in Singapore?

Fat freeze treatment is a safe, comfortable treatment that is suitable for both men and women.

Additionally, this procedure is ideal for:

  • People who are risk-averse and are keen to avoid surgery
  • People who are moderately fat with smaller fatty deposits to get rid of
  • People who have undergone liposuction and would like to treat residual fatty tissue
  • People with a moderate amount of fat at the areas of concern such as abdomen, love handles, double chin, inner and outer thighs, arms and flanks

Is there any downtime for fat freezing treatment?

There is little to no downtime after a fat freezing treatment. In most cases, patients can resume their regular day-to-day activities immediately after the treatment.

How is fat freeze different from liposuction?

Although both treatments are designed to reduce unwanted fat cells in your body, fat freeze and liposuction are two very different procedures.

Can fat freezing treatment reduce my weight?

Cryolipolysis is not an effective way to reduce overall weight loss. It is particularly useful if you have tried diet and exercise but haven’t been able to get rid of the excess, stubborn fat bulges on certain areas of the body.

Only by incorporating fat freezing treatment with regular exercise and a strict diet, you will be able to achieve overall weight loss, including stubborn fat bulges.

How many sessions of fat freezing treatment is required?

It depends on several factors such as the amount of excess fat, your dietary habits and lifestyle. In general, we recommend between 1 and 3 sessions per area to see visible, long-lasting results.
