What is fat freezing?
Cryolipolysis, also known as ‘fat freezing’, uses a fat freezing machine which freezes fat cells reducing unwanted fat and leaving you with an attractive, more toned body.
Fat freezing is a one- off treatment (even though it could be repeated at three months if required for more intense fat removal results). The treatment takes about one hour and is not painful, although it does feel cold initially.
The area you wish to be reduce is frozen and while we doing so the fat cells will be destroyed, they are then removed from the body via lymph drainage and results become visible after 6-12 weeks.
Fat freezing with our fat freezing machine is suitable for areas which are large enough to be sucked into the fat freezing vacuumed cup.
Alternatives To Fat Freezing?
Before Or After My Treatment, What Should I Do
There’s no general anaesthetic, no surgery and no incisions required, so there’s no risk of any of the complications that these can cause.
You might experience some bruising and redness following your treatment, but this should resolve in a few days.
Very rarely people can experience “freeze burns” but this usually occurs when the practitioner performing the treatment is untrained. By choosing a reputable, professional and experienced clinic like The Greenwich Spa, you can reduce the risk of this happening.
It is an FDA approved treatment that has been shown to be very safe.
Coolsculpting or 3D Lipo?
If you’ve been looking at non-surgical liposuction treatments and have been typing Fat Freezing into the Search Engine then you’ve probably saw both “Coolsculpting” and “3D Lipo”. Both use similar technology to tackle stubborn fat pockets.
Coolsculpting treatment times can be quite lengthy as it only has one applicator, which results in double the treatment time compared to 3D Lipo.
- 3D Lipo uses a combination of technologies which lead to better results when compared to Coolsculpting’s single Fat Freeze Technology:
- 3D Lipo Fat Freezing – Targets stubborn pockets of fat
- 3D Lipo Ultrasound Cavitation – For Inch Loss
- 3D Lipo Radio Frequency – For Skin Tightening
- 3D Lipo Shockwave Shockwave – For skin tone and cellulite
Coolscuplting is not able to treat cellulite or loose skin. Coolsculpting can be up to double or more of the price of a 3D Lipo treatment, primarily because CoolSculpting is supposed to be a Doctor led treatment, however in reality, the doctor will usually have a therapist deliver the treatment.
