Fat freezing uses similar technology to Coolsculpting but vary slightly in temperature application. In this article, we will discuss the ins and outs of Coolsculpting and Fat freezing and solve all your doubts about these popular procedures.
Coolsculpting was first approved by the FDA in 2010, and it gained attention in the market because of how effective it is and also because it’s a non-invasive treatment, an alternative to liposuction.
Coolsculpting and Fat Freezing Treatment Step by Step
Coolsculpting and Fat Freezing, which are sometimes referred to as Cryolipolysis, consists of applying cold temperature, with the help of a specialized machine, to suction the areas that want to be treated, like if a sort of exterior liposuction, without actually removing anything visible, making it superficial and non-invasive to the body.
A common question of potential patients is, “Does it hurt?” and the answer is no. The cooling panels set to work crystallizing your fat cells. You will experience suction and cooling sensations that will eventually go numb. Because everyone’s body is different, the patient is evaluated in a consultation guided by a specialist, where the best treatment plan tailored to individual goals will be discussed. The areas to be treated will be measured, and size of the device will vary depending on the areas to be targeted.
Once all that is decided, a cool sheet will be applied to the designated areas to protect your skin from the low temperatures. Some tests could be performed just to make sure the device will cover as much amount of fat as possible, all this with the intention of avoiding any potential sign of pain during the session, which lasts around 60 minutes depending on the area that is being treated.
How does it work?
An applicator applies suction to the area you want to target and using a regulated cooling plate to bring fat cells down to a temperature at which they are irreversibly damaged. After the deep-freeze damage the fat cells, they will eventually die and be released by the body as waste in the following week. You’ll start to see results after a few weeks with the final effects revealed in two months’ time. Sessions shouldn’t be too close to each other in order to let our skin heal and rest, and also let the fat reduction effect work.
