So…..what is this Fat Freezing OR CoolSculpting we spoke about last time?
I can speak from experience here, as I tried Fat Freezing about a year ago, using an offer which was too hard to resist. It left me astonished. 2+ inch loss from my waistline in an hour! Needless to say I am super excited, we now offer this here at The Bodhi Tree Spa.
The technology we use is Sculpt Cryo4 technology. Fat freezing, as we will now refer to (easier to say than Cryolipolysis), is a relatively new revolutionary procedure. Designed to help both women and men to target unwanted bulges their bodies aren’t responding to, even after all the effort they’ve been putting in with their daily fitness routine.
Tests previously run and monitored in the US on 528 patients, which targeted the lower abdomen, upper abdomen, left or right flank, inner thigh, back and outer thigh found success rates comparable to that of Liposuction.
There have also been tests run where massage was used in conjunction with Fat Freezing, which produced even greater results in terms of percentage of body fat loss.
How Does it Help to Shift Those Unwanted Inches?
Fat freezing works by using a vacuum to cool the fat away from the body between two plates. The fat is frozen to a precise temperature without any damage to blood vessels, nerves or the skin. When the body is lowered to a certain temperature, it triggers a metabolic process called apoptosis. It is a safe, non-invasive way to reduce fat off your love handles and other areas which tend to be resilient to diet and exercise .
It is painless, non-invasive and there is no need for needles or anaesthesia, with a high satisfaction rate amongst patients. What’s more, as the treatment only takes 1 hour, you can almost fit into a lunch break as you can return to your everyday activities straight away!
The fat cells in the specifically treated area will undergo a natural cell death, so the effects can continue working after the treatments. In some instances it can takes up to 2 months to see results. In my case, the results were instant.
To summarise, Fat Freezing starts the process and your body takes care of the rest. Since fat stem cells are also destroyed, the fat reduction is permanent in almost all cases.
Can Fat Freezing Target Stubborn Fat Areas and Sculpt Specific Areas to help inch loss?
You can reduce fat on multiple areas of your body and additional sessions can further enhance your results. With our guidance, you can create an individualised body sculpting treatment plan tailored just for your body, so you can get the best results.
Does Fat Freezing Hurt and are There any Side Effects?
Side effects are mild in relation to the results. Especially when compared with Liposuction. Typically patients will experience numbness in the treatment area from the excess cold which can last for up to a few hours. Patients may experience redness, mild pain and bruising for a few days afterwards.
Who is Suitable for the Fat Freezing Procedure?
It’s recommended you should be no more than 15 lbs from your ideal weight and focus on the stubborn fat pockets resistant to diet and exercise for optimal results.
The popularity of the procedure grew dramatically over the two years studied, with 823 percent more treatment cycles delivered in 2012 than in 2010 and a growing demand for the procedure among men.
As with all procedures, we would recommend you consult with your GP if you have any concerns that the treatment may not be suitable for you due to any health conditions you may have. Because we like to practice what we preach at The Bodhi Tree Spa, we invite you to call us to learn more about whether IF Sculpt Cryo is right for you and those last stubborn inches.
