Fat Freeze: Eliminate Stubborn Fats Effectively
How does fat freeze 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 the treatment?
After 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.
What happens after the treatment?
The post-treatment care is equally important to reap the maximum benefits of the fat freeze treatment. The nurse therapist are trained to provide our proprietary post-treatment care 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.
Who is suitable for the treatment?
Fat freeze treatment is a safe, comfortable treatment that is suitable for both men and women. This treatment is only effective for people with a moderate amount of fat at the areas of concerns such as abdomen, love handles, double chin, inner and outer thighs, arms, and flanks.
Fat freeze treatment does not replace diet and regular exercise. This treatment is effective for people with stubborn pockets of fat that cannot seem to get rid of with diet and exercise.
Side effects may include temporary redness, bruising, itching, firmness, and swelling. These effects are temporary and will resolve in a matter of a few days.
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.
- Selectively eliminates stubborn adipose tissue
- Works effectively with minimal downtime
- Minimal health risks since it is non-invasive procedure
- Does not leave any surgical scar on the body
- People who are risk-averse and are keen to avoid surgery
- People are moderately fat with smaller fatty deposits to get rid off
- People who have undergone liposuction and would like to treat residual fatty tissue
