Fat-freezing or its medical term, cryolipolysis is a non-invasive and non-surgical medical procedure used to destroy fat cells, by freezing.
In the aesthetics/cosmetics industry, it is considered a non surgical alternative to liposuction.
Advantages vs Disadvantages of Fat Freezing
• Non-invasive technology
• No scars/incisions since there’s no surgery involved
• Minimal to no downtime
• Less dramatic results compared to liposuction
• Treatable body part areas is limited to the cup size of the application head
• Results will show only 2-3 months after the treatment
How is Fat freezing done?
The procedure starts off with the aesthetician marking your desired “problem area” for precise placement of the device.
After getting the specific area, the aesthetician will apply gel pads on the cooling pads of the device/desired area followed by clamping your “problem area” in between the two cooling plates and start the procedure. The gel pads are there to protect your skin as the cooling plates lower the temperature to -5 to -10 degrees celcius to kill fat cells while leaving other tissues like skin, blood
vessels and nerves unharmed. Not to worry, the temperature is constantly regulated to be cold enough to kill fat cells, and not harm the person!
