It is a special treatment but what it won’t do is make obese people slim. What it will do is freeze fat and kill fat cells in order for your body to break them down and pass out of your system over the forthcoming months.
Fat-freezing is a non-invasive treatment targeting the fat cells and reduce the stubborn fat, small deposits of fat in areas as inner and outer thighs, love handles, stomach. It is suitable for persons which are no more than two stones above the normal weight.
Its principle relies in controlled cooling sub-zero temperatures which will cause cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without damage to the overlying skin.
Treatment is lasting only 45-60 minutes and one single treatment can eradicate up to 20% of the unwanted fat.
This targeted procedure allows crystallised fat cells to die off so that they can be eliminated
from the body while healthy skin and muscle remain intact.
How does it work?
The machine is using a non-invasive vacuum pressure and the fat tissue is kept inside the machine cup and in tight contact with the cooling plates which will cool the tissue at -5°C, -9°C.
The treatment is not affecting the skin and muscle only the fat cells are destroyed during the process. These dead cells are then eliminated through out the natural process of metabolism.
After treatment the results are visible on the next 4-8 weeks depends on the each person metabolism, the final result can be achieved up to 3 months.
The Difference between Fat Reduction and Weight Loss
When we lose weight from an area our fat cells become smaller but the actual number of fat cells remain the same. When we gained weight these fat cells become larger again, and so the sequence follows throughout our lifetime as we fluctuate, gain or lose weight.
What the Fat Freeze procedure does is actually reduce and remove the number of fat cells in the treated area, therefor rather then shrinking them to appear smaller like with weight loss by actually removing these cells they can never get bigger and are permanently removed. Unlike weight loss surgery or other non-surgical loss procedures the result with Fat freezing treatments last because once the fat cells are eliminated they are gone for good.
Even if you don’t weight loss you will be thinner and your clothes will not only fit and feel better but you will look better.
A special hand piece consisting of vacuum suction and cooling plates is positioned on the selected body area. The area is first warmed to help to separate the blood from the fat cells, then chilled. Fat cells have a lower temperature tolerance, which means they are destroyed at lower temperature. Once crystallised they no longer function in their usual way and breakdown via the body’s natural functions.
Fat cells are simply destroyed and dissolved into the body and eliminated via the natural metabolism.
There are generally few side effects, no recovery period or downtime. Very rare to have extended redness or bruising after treatment.
Each treatment takes up to 60 minutes per area, additional time may be required if you treat more than one area.
One session is sufficient for most people in most areas.However this obviously depends on the amount of fat you would like removed and the amount to begin with.
It is not painful but a sensation of pressure during the vacuum phase of the treatment can be experienced. The treatment for most is completely pain free and comfortable.
Once destroyed the same fat cells cannot grow back as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle.
This depends on the individual, the fat thickness ,and the area treated. Changes happened over a number of weeks, maximum results would be expected between 12 and 16 weeks, however some individuals begin to see changes after only 2-3 weeks.
- Inner and outer thighs
- Bingo wings/arms
- Man boobs
- Love handles and flanks
- Back and side rolls
- Slightly numbness
- Mild swelling and redness
- Pins and needles
- Abdominal cramping
Small amount of risks which will be explained and discussed during the initial consultation.
No. However Skin Microneedling has shown to improve significantly the surface of cellulite.
Fat Freeze specializes in fat loss not skin tightening and for those with normal skin elasticity the part of the body whose surface is being reduced will tighten back to normal during the next 3-4 months.
However for those with preexisting skin laxity/excess skin ,the elasticity of the skin has already been compromised and the treatment would not help with this and further fat loss would maintain the level of excess skin or may actual worsen due to less fat being in the area.
There are skin tightening procedures available to assist you with this so certainly not a contraindicator.
Treatments costs are depending on the areas and there are starting from £299 per area with massive discounts and offers for more then 3 areas treated. In one single session can be treated as many as 3 areas.
