5 Problem Areas Fat Freezing Treatment Can Help

We all have areas of our body that we feel self-conscious about, try to hide or would like to improve. For many people, weight loss can be a real struggle. You can diet and exercise but still, some stubborn areas of fat just don’t seem to shift. 

This is where Fat Freezing can help. Fat Freezing Treatment can destroy your unwanted fat cells in those hard to improve places, helping to sculpt your figure, improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem.

What Is Our Fat Freezing Treatment And How Does It Work?

Fat freezing, or cryolipolysis, is a very effective non surgical fat reduction and body sculpting treatment.

It works by accurately targeting unwanted fat cells and reducing their temperature to a point where they can no longer function. This effectively kills the cells and triggers your body to respond. Over the following days and weeks, these cells crystallise, break down and get naturally eliminated from your body.

Eating well and regular exercise are great for reducing the fat content of your cells, and we fully encourage you to maintain a healthy lifestyle. But the actual amount of fat cells remains the same. Lying in wait to refill.

Because Fat Freezing actually triggers the removal of these cells, the result is fewer fat cells in your problem area and a visibly smoother, defined and toned appearance.

5 Problem Areas That Fat Freezing Can Reduce

1. Belly Fat

Your spare tyre, mum tum or beer belly. However you refer to it, we’re talking about the stubborn band of fat around your abdomen that just won’t shift. No matter how well you eat, the number of daily sit-ups you do or the sacrifice of your favourite sweet treats or tipple.

Belly fat is hard to get rid of because of its physiology. The stubborn fat cells of your belly have more alpha receptors, so they release fat at a slower rate than normal fat cells, which have beta receptors. This makes them harder to shift. 

Fat freezing on belly fat works by targeting the layer of fat cells beneath your skin called subcutaneous fat. This is the bit you can pinch and is soft to touch. Your excess cells will be carefully and painlessly destroyed, leaving your belly looking noticeably flatter, smoother and more sculpted.

2. Bingo Wings

Bingo wings are the folds of loose skin and fatty tissue that hang down from your upper arms. The term actually originated in the Bingo Halls of the 1990s, when people raised their uncovered arms and waved their winning cards in the air! 

They are fairly common and usually develop as people age and the body finds it more difficult to maintain its tone. A survey found that 3 in 4 women disliked their bingo wings more than any other part of their body.

One of the main frustrations of bingo wings can be embarrassment, making you want to wear clothes that cover them up. Often having to choose tops that aren’t to your taste or style just to achieve this.

Having a fat freezing treatment on your bingo wings is highly effective. The fat here is often very stubborn to shift because of those pesky alpha receptors. And as they’re mostly made up of tissue and fat, you can’t tone them because you can only tone muscle.

Fat Freezing Treatment helps by completely removing your unwanted fat cells for slimmer, more toned and defined arms.

3. Saddlebags

Getting their name from the bags that hang on either side of a horse’s saddle, these are the fatty pockets on the outside of your thighs that give you a pear shape rather than an hourglass physique. There’s no one thing that causes them. Anyone can be affected, and people develop them through puberty, pregnancy or genetics.

Saddlebags make you feel bigger than you are, are difficult to dress and are notoriously difficult to get rid of. It can be extremely hard to slim down this area through exercise and diet alone because genetics causes most saddlebags, and there’s nothing you can do to change that. And although you can do specific exercises that target your thighs and bottom, you can’t actually target the saddlebags specifically.

But with fat freezing treatment, you can pinpoint your saddlebag area and target the actual cells of this hard to shift fat, eliminating them and preventing them from returning.

4. Double Chin

A double chin forms when there is excess fat stored in the fat cells beneath the skin. Having a double chin is nothing to be embarrassed about. Many people have them. Some people store fat on their belly, others under their chin. 

Having a double chin changes the shape of your face and may make you look overweight when you’re not. This can make you feel self-conscious, lacking in confidence and embarrassed.

Reducing your double chin with fat freezing treatment is a great choice as the treatment itself is non-invasive, gentle and pain free. Perfect for the delicate tissue of your face and neck, to leave it looking more taught, defined and youthful for a more sculpted appearance and smoother jawline.

Fat Freezing Treatment

5. Back Fat

Whether it’s lower back love handles, mid-back bra fat or an upper back buffalo hump, fat on your back can cause discomfort with your clothing, lack of self-confidence and low self-esteem.

It’s easy to accumulate back fat, and how to get rid of back fat is one of the most searched terms on Google, which shows how common it is.

Fat freezing treatment results in permanent fat loss of your unwanted back fat. With this fat freezing treatment, your clothes will fit better, a bra bulge will be a thing of the past and your confidence will improve.

Is Fat Freezing The Right Treatment For You?

If you’re looking for a non-surgical, low risk and extremely effective treatment to smooth out your lumps and bumps, fat freezing may be the treatment for you.

With no downtime and very few (if any) side effects, fat freezing enables you to carry on with your daily life while your body breaks down and naturally eliminates your stubborn fat cells.

No wonder it’s one of the most popular body shaping treatments and has celebrity fans such as Kris Jenner who actually took the Keeping Up With The Kardashians film crew along to her treatment.

But it’s important to remember that fat freezing is a body contouring treatment, not a weight loss program. If you’re after significant weight reduction, fat freezing won’t achieve this, but it will give your physique more definition.

Reducing the number of fat cells in your problem areas through fat freezing treatments helps to contour and smooth the pockets of fat that just won’t shift through diet and exercise plans.

Read How I Improved My Lichen Sclerosus

Had a consultation with Elite yesterday, I must say I was a bit nervous, but Dr Shirin was so friendly and helpful.
I was given lots of advice and was given treatment options that were within my budget.
A few weeks after the P Shot I've really started to see a difference and have gained my confidence back.

Thank You!



Elite is an outstanding professional clinic with high standard treatments. All the staff members are friendly and offer you honest opinions when it comes to products and treatments. This is a welcoming clinic that I can 100% recommend. Treatments are spoken through and explained in detail, also aftercare. I have been going nearly a year now and am happy with all the treatments I’ve had, wouldn't go anywhere else. The Bocox treatment started to work within a few days, which I was surprised about. So glad I went to Elite for treatment.



Thank you Dr Shirin, the O Shot has really helped me with my Lichen Sclerosus. I'd heard about the treatment on the LS Facebook Groups and message a few people that had treatment with Dr Shirin. I was like many in the group who had run out of treatment options and using creams on a daily basis. I have to say a few months after treatment, I can see a real positive change and I'm hoping my LS will continue to improve. Dr Shirin did say that I might have to have a second treatment given how severe my case is.




A great discovery in the neighbourhood ! There is no need to go up to London for a beauty treatment of any kind. You'll find a whole range of different treatments suiting all age groups and concerns. Welcoming, reassuring, friendly, professional, high tech. I shall be back for more. I love the results of the Thread Lift I had.


Great service as always, skin is glowing very happy


Very happy with the result of my recent visit. For sure will continue with Elite in future

Hi, Alex here,Just had my Lichen treatment today with Dr Shirin,The whole team at elite are very friendly, comforting and understanding, and did everything they could to give me a wonderful and welcoming experience. They are all so kind, friendly and knowledgeable, world experts at what they do. I am lucky to have them near London. They are also super responsive on the phone and email, so I know they care about thier patients, and I'm very well taken care of, (as with other clinics I have been to, its often difficult to get them to respond to questions), but this clinic is the most responsive I have ever seen!This is a beautiful and wonderful place and I highly recommend it, and I will be recommending it to all my friends as well. They definitely deserve the super high reviews they are getting, so I'm happy to add another one! A Big thank you from me and my family for all you have done for us during this journey!

Yesterday I had a 'body sculpt' session, to help lymphatic drainage. I was zipped into a suit up to my waist. This massaged and lightly squeezed my feet, ankles, calves, thighs and abdomen. I was breathing oxygen rich air via nasal tubes. It was very relaxing and I slept really well last night. Thank you Elite Aesthetics.
