Fat Freezing, whether by a host of any devices like Coolsculpting or Zimmer, is a body sculpting treatment that really needs no introduction. It is based on the concept of Cryolipolysis. It was discovered that fat deposits can be destroyed simply by freezing and thawing the fat cells. After much research on human safety and efficacy came the concept of fat freezing.
Each treatment of Fat Freezing involves first applying suction to the treatment area.
The machine then gradually and painlessly extracts the heat out of the area until it is completely frozen
The whole process takes one hour per treatment area. The treatment is painless throughout and surrounding tissues like the skin, muscles and nerves are not affected
After each treatment, there is a mild soreness in the treateed areas which can last for up to 2 weeks.
This soreness only very rarely needs pain medication and actually corresponds to a well documented inflammatory reaction within the fat layer that happens before apoptosis of the fat cells. Put simply, you know the area is going to shrink when you feel the soreness.
