Can Fat Freezing Get Rid Of Those Stubborn Areas Of Fat?
Sam used Elite Aesthetics for many years, getting a range of different aesthetic treatments with Dr Shirin. She had always struggled with weight loss and diet and was really unhappy with her chin area.
For Sam, this was the area on her body that held on to fat the most. No amount of exercise or diet helped, so she asked Dr Shirin if there was a non-invasive treatment that could target this area for her.
She was recommended a treatment called fat freezing which reduces the fat in particular areas of your body.
Once you adopt a healthy eating plan and start exercising regularly, your weight can reduce quite steadily. But some people, like Sam, find that there are pockets of fat that are hard to get rid of.
Keeping motivated when trying to lose weight is hard; after initial success, many people can experience a plateau in their weight loss – this is usually down to those pockets of fat that seem to resist even the most dedicated regime.
Sadly, you can’t target specific areas with exercise and diet. If there are areas like this that you want to lose weight from, you’ll probably need a little bit of help.
Liposuction is what commonly springs to mind, however, this is an extreme treatment requiring surgery and a pretty significant investment. However, there is a popular and effective solution that doesn’t involve surgery. Fat freezing is a non-invasive treatment that targets stubborn areas of fat.
Fat freezing, also known as Cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive fat removal procedure that uses cold temperatures to destroy unwanted body fat allowing you to sculpt your body and reduce fat in those hard-to-shift areas of your body.
It can target areas such as:
- Belly fat – including the upper abdomen, lower abdomen, and love handles
- Thighs – including the inner thigh, outer thigh, and saddlebags
- Upper arms – including bingo wings
- The hips and buttocks
- The chin
- Back fat
It’s a much safer alternative to liposuction since it’s non-surgical. The treatment also has no downtime – you can carry on with your day right after.
How It Works
A specialist fat-freezing machine is suctioned onto the treatment area, and the device cools the fatty tissue.
Fat freezes at a higher temperature than your skin, so the device cools your fat to a temperature that destroys the fat cells while leaving your skin and surrounding tissue unharmed.
Your body then naturally clears out these dead fat cells using your lymphatic system. This occurs a few weeks after your treatment – and this is when you will begin to see the results start to take effect. Your final results will be visible after a couple of months.
There are many advantages to fat freezing:
- No surgery is required
- Lower risk than other procedures
- The treatment is quick, lasting between 30-60 minutes
- It’s pain-free – the only sensation that you’ll feel is a coldness in the treatment area
- It’s effective – your fat cells are destroyed permanently
You will start to see some difference after 2 – 4 weeks, but fat cells will continue to be destroyed for some weeks, so your full results won’t be visible until around 8-12 weeks after your treatment.
Your results are permanent, and the destroyed fat cells are gone for good. However, your body can create new fat cells in the same area and there’s no limit to how large these new cells grow. Maintaining a good diet and taking regular exercise will lessen this significantly, creating an appearance you’re happy with.
What Sam Says
“I’ve come to Dr Shirin for many years because I feel confident and in control. I’ve had many treatments over the years and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else for an aesthetic treatment.
My chin has always been my problem area – no matter my diet or how much I exercised it holds onto fat. And what I’ve learned over the years coming to Elite Aesthetics is that, if you don’t have a good foundation at your base, you won’t get the best results.
But that’s ok because there are many treatments to help, and they don’t have to be extreme. Dr Shirin suggested the Chin Cryolipolsis, and it has been fantastic. I’ve noticed a huge difference in how I look, and I’m really happy with the results. Fat freezing is incredible and a dream treatment for me.”
