If you’ve ever googled “how to lose stubborn fat” or “how to reduce cellulite” you’re not alone. A lot of people on a weight loss journey struggle with stubborn fat. Before you go on another restrictive diet or book a consultation with a plastic surgeon, maybe it’s time you considered fat freezing.
What is fat freezing?
Fat freezing, also known as Cryolipolysis and CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that removes fat from specific parts of the body. The fat freezing treatment areas include the abdomen, thighs, and legs to mention a few. If you’re looking for an effective pain-free procedure with very little downtime, this might be a solution for you. Especially if you lead a busy life and can’t take the time off work to recover.
How Does Fat Freezing by CoolSculpting® Work?
CoolSculpting® is an FDA approved non-invasive fat-reduction treatment that targets and eliminates fat deposits. In one Cryolipolysis treatment, CoolSculpting® can remove 20 to 27%* of fat by delivering controlled cooling to fat cells beneath the skin.
First, vacuum applicators are placed over the targeted area to ensure that only those fat cells are treated. Vacuum pressure is used to pull tissue through the cooling panels, exposing fat cells to temperatures as low as -13°C.
Once frozen, the fat cells go through apoptosis (cell death), and the body naturally removes the frozen cells from the body within 3 months. After the treatment, you can expect to see a visible fat reduction in the treated area, resulting in a more sculpted physique that you can be proud of.
The Benefits of Fat Freezing
In the past, invasive procedures such as liposuction were the only option viable available for removing fat. These posed many risks such as infections, fluid accumulation, and severe bruising. Non-invasive procedures such as fat freezing eliminate all the risks associated with major surgery while reaping all the rewards. It’s no wonder it’s becoming increasingly popular in Singapore.
No Downtime Required
Fat freezing procedures are relatively short and take no longer than 60 minutes for one localized area. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure with no downtime required.
Targeted Fat Removal
Fat freezing can effectively target stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to any diet or exercise regime you’ve tried. Due to its advanced technology, CoolSculpting can cater to different sizes and volumes of fat deposits. Which gives you the body you’ve always dreamt of and deserve.
Will Fat Freezing Help You Lose Weight?
When it comes to weight loss, rarely does one procedure fix all weight-related issues. Fat freezing is a solely fat loss treatment, and cannot guarantee permanent weight loss as that requires a change in one’s diet and lifestyle. The CoolSculpting procedure works by removing fat cells that have accumulated significantly in specific areas of the skin. The procedure reduces the number rather than the size of fat cells in the body.
