What is Cryo Fat Freeze?
Cryo Fat Freeze is a state-of-the-art coolsculpting technology that enables non-invasive and non-surgical body contouring. Cryo Fat Freeze works by freezing away stubborn fat using a targeted cooling process known as cryolipolysis.
Cryolipolysis is a medical treatment that uses the controlled application of cooling, within the temperature range of +5 to −5 °C. This non-invasive procedure enables the localized reduction of fat deposits, in order to reshape the contours of the body. The exposure to cooling causes the cell death (apoptosis) of subcutaneous fat tissue, but the overlying skin is not affected.
This is a safe and patented procedure, approved by the FDA. It can yield results of up to a 20% fat reduction.
How Does It Work?
Cryo Fat Freeze is a fat freezing procedure that targets fatty areas that do not respond to exercise and good eating habits. The treatment utilises controlled cooling technology to target and crystallise fat cells. Only the fat cells are frozen, while the skin remains unharmed.
In the first few minutes of the treatment, you will likely feel intense cold. Certain applicators might give you a pulling sensation because the machine uses suction. During the procedure, the area being treated will typically become numb within 5-10 minutes.
After the treatment, you may feel a tingling sensation when the affected area is massaged for 2-3 minutes. The fat cells will be gradually removed by the immune system in the following weeks and months. The remaining fat cells will become condensed, resulting in the reduction of the fat layer.
Patients may see changes as soon as 3 weeks after their treatment, and better results after 2 months. Post treatment, patients’ bodies will continue to eliminate fat cells for up to 4-6 months.
Who is Suitable for This Treatment?
Cryo Fat Freeze is a suitable treatment for both men and women, with moderate amount of fat at areas of concern, including flanks, abdomen, love handles, belly, tummy and thighs. Only fat cells are targeted and frozen, while skin cells remain undamaged.
Please note that Cryo Fat Freeze is not a weight-loss programme for overweight or obese individuals, but a body contouring treatment. Ideal candidates suitable to undergo the treatment are people who are near their ideal body weight. However, although they observe a healthy diet and exercise regularly, they still have stubborn pockets of fat in particular areas that have not disappeared. These individuals are looking for a non-invasive and non-surgical spot reduction treatment for specific areas of fat.
Safety & Side Effects
Cryo Fat Freeze is a safe and non-invasive coolsculpting treatment employing cryolipolysis that is approved by the FDA. There is minimal downtime incurred. Usually, patients are able to resume their normal daily activities after the fat freezing treatment.
Possible side effects immediately after the treatment might include temporary redness, itching, tenderness, skin sensitivity, aching, blanching, bruising, firmness, tingling, swelling and stinging. However, these effects are temporary and will generally disappear within a few days.
