Body Contouring: Is Fat Freezing Effective?
Body contouring is the process of shaping and defining your body, such as changing the circumference of a part of your body, like your waist or thighs. Body contouring treatments can help to alter your body’s silhouette by reducing small areas of fat.
Creating your dream silhouette takes lots of work and healthy living, and for some, stubborn pockets of fat can ruin the look.
Fat freezing has transformed how we can treat those stubborn areas where fat can remain. Years ago, you would only be able to rely on painful surgery, but now, a relaxing visit to a beautiful clinic is all that you need.
So, what exactly is fat freezing, and how can it be so effective at body contouring?
What Is Fat Freezing?
Fat freezing body contouring is also known as cryolipolysis. It 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.
Fat freezing is a painless, simple, and natural solution for fat-cell removal that doesn’t leave any scarring.
Because it is a non-surgical treatment, you won’t need any anaesthetic or recovery time. Although you can go about your normal day immediately afterwards, you might experience a little redness or numbness in the treatment area for a few hours.
At Elite Aesthetics, we use a specialist fat freezing machine on your chosen treatment area. This device gently suctions the surface of your skin and cools your fatty tissue right down to a temperature that destroys the fat cells while leaving your skin and surrounding tissue unharmed.
The process is painless and very safe because fat freezes at a higher temperature than your skin.
Your body then naturally clears 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 take effect.
Your final results will most likely be visible after a couple of months.
What Body Contouring Can Fat Freezing Provide?
Stubborn pockets of body fat are notoriously hard to get rid of, and if you’ve ever tried exercising them away, you’ve probably found that a healthy diet and exercise will only go so far before you plateau.
Fat freezing can target stubborn areas such as:
- Arms – including stubborn bingo wings
- Thighs – including the inner thigh, outer thigh, and saddlebags
- Abdomen – reduces fat stores across the whole tummy
- Chin – targeting the double chin
- Back – remove back fat across the upper, mid, and lower back sections
- ‘Love handles’ – sculpting and redefining the shape of excess fat that sits at the sides of your waist.
