What is Fat Freezing?

You may have heard that many people are getting rid of unwanted fat by using treatments that kill fat cells with intense cold. If you are dealing with pockets of fat on your body that have proven to be resistant to diet and exercise, you may be wondering if fat freezing is right for you. We would like to tell you how the treatment works and how it can benefit you.

Fat Freezing Technology

You may be interested to know how freezing fat to help an individual get a more attractive body even got its start. It actually started in a children’s hospital. Two doctors noticed that children started getting dimples on just one side of their faces. After observing the children for a while, they found out that they were sucking on frozen treats on just one side of their mouths. The exposure to intense cold led to the dimples. It was not long before fat freezing started to be used to get rid of stubborn fat.

The interesting thing about using intense cold to kill fat is that only the fat is affected by the cold temperatures. The fat freezes and is damaged at a temperature that is higher than what your skin and organs would be affected by. So this means we can use just the right level of cooling in order to freeze your unwanted fat cells.

Once the fat cells are frozen, they break apart. They can then be removed by the body in a natural way. Your body sees the ruptured fat cells and the fatty content that has spilled out of them as cellular debris. It is then removed through your lymphatic system.

This treatment gives you the ability to enjoy results that are similar to what you would see with liposuction but without the need to go through surgery. This means that there is not the same downtime or recovery period that a person would need if they had liposuction.

When Will You See Results?

You cannot expect to see immediate results when you use cold to get rid of fat. It takes time for your body to eliminate the damaged fat cells. You will likely start to see the areas that received treatment getting slimmer in the weeks and months after the treatment.

It is good to point out that these treatments are not designed to be weight loss solutions. A good candidate for the treatment will be at or close to their goal weight.

Say goodbye to fat in hard to lose areas. Here, I’m using a shockwave technology to tighten the skin and increase bloodflow. I combine shockwave treatments with radio frequency technologies to simultaneously reduce fat and also tighten the skin to provide a natural look and beautiful result to my patients. Shockwave devices like the BTL Cellutone tighten skin while radio frequency devices like the BTL Vanquish melt fat. Plus, I use coolsculpting to enhance fat reduction and freeze fat cells for good. #FireandIce Invest in yourself and enhance your results at the gym with this combination!
