Pros & Cons Of Fat Freezing: Why Is It So Popular Now in Dartford?

Fat Freezing

Could fat freezing treatment help you to achieve your goals? Committing to weight loss is incredibly empowering. It’s all about getting healthy and making self-improvements that will increase your confidence and make you feel better about yourself.

It usually goes hand in hand with a positive lifestyle shake-up as you take on healthier habits like drinking more water, eating the right foods and exercising regularly.

The problem most people find is that after the initial success, your weight loss can plateau. Certain areas simply don’t respond no matter how much you exercise and eat right.

This can leave you feeling really disheartened. 

If you’re on a weight loss journey yourself and this sounds all too familiar, it’s worth knowing that you’re really not alone in this. The good news is that there are safe, non-invasive treatments that can help you achieve your goals and eliminate those stubborn pockets of fat for good.

A fat freezing treatment might just be the answer to getting you where you want to be when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

Fat Freezing Treatment: What Is It?

A fat freezing treatment targets your fat cells and freezes them. The dead cells then go through your body’s natural biological process and are eliminated through the liver.

Fat cells have a higher sensitivity to temperature than skin cells, so fat freezing leaves the surrounding area completely undamaged. This is just one of the advantages that a fat freezing treatment has over surgical treatments such as liposuction.


What Can A Fat Freezing Treatment do?

Fat freezing is not a weight loss treatment. However, when used alongside a healthy diet and exercise, it is proven to work on those stubborn areas that need a bit more help.

Fat freezing can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Upper Arms 
  • Thighs
  • Stomach 
  • Chin
  • Buttocks
  • Muffin Top/Waist
  • Hips
  • Love Handles/Back Fat 

pros and cons fat freezing


What Are The Pros Of Fat Freezing?

There are a lot of pros to fat freezing, which is what makes them such a popular treatment. The pros include:

No Downtime

Unlike liposuction, a fat freezing treatment can be done during your lunchtime and afterwards, you can go about your day as normal.

It’s Safe & Reliable

It is scientifically researched with over 10 years of evidence to demonstrate its effectiveness. It is also FDA-approved, making fat freezing one of the safest fat-removal treatments available.

Variety Of Treatment Areas

As already mentioned, there are a wide variety of areas that a fat freezing treatment can help with, from your muffin top to your bingo wings. 

Discreet Treatment

A fat freezing treatment is quick and very discreet. You’ll gradually see your physique change, much like you would with diet and exercise. If you prefer to keep your treatment private, it’s ideal.


The treatment is painless, and because fat cells have a much keener sensitivity to temperature than skin cells, the surrounding area remains completely undamaged.

It’s Permanent

Fat cells are permanently removed, and they won’t come back. You can maintain the results with a good balance of eating the right foods and exercising regularly.

What Are The Cons Of Fat Freezing?

There are very few negatives to a fat freezing treatment, however, some of the reported downsides include the following:

Results Aren’t Instant

Unlike surgical liposuction, it takes a while for your body to process the fat removal naturally, but you should see results within 4 weeks.

Side Effects

Although a fat freezing treatment is painless, you might experience some side effects, including redness and swelling, temporary numbness or tingling and, very occasionally, a small amount of bruising.

Why Is Fat Freezing So Popular Now?

In the past, if you wanted to target specific areas for weight loss, you had to resort to surgical procedures like liposuction if diet and exercise alone weren’t working. 

Liposuction is expensive and invasive, whereas a fat freezing treatment is quick, painless and incredibly effective.

Popularity is growing thanks to the success rate. People have confidence in fat freezing treatments because they provide incredible results that are backed by science. 3D Lipo, a popular fat freezing treatment, reduces fat cells in a treated area by 20-25%.

It’s a popular choice amongst many celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Mariah Carey, who are both very vocal about their positive experience of cryolipolysis.

And it’s not just the US that loves them. Top UK clinics, like Elite Aesthetics, provide a professional service, offering guidance and advice on fat freezing and other complementary treatments. These clinics allow patients to feel reassured and confident in their procedures.

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.
