Fat freeze treatment can tackle unwanted fat pockets in specific areas.
Fat freeze treatments, or one type of fat freeze treatment to be exact (CoolSculpting), are quick fat reduction regimes. Results occur rapidly with usually no side effects beyond some brief and mild discomfort during the procedure.
On this page we will run through key details about how fat freeze treatment works, the fat freeze treatment procedure and fat freezing prices, but first a word about our credentials and why you can trust what we say about this treatment.
Number 1 For CoolSculpting, Fat Freeze Treatment
The Cosmetic Skin Clinic is the number one clinic in the UK, western Europe and London for CoolSculpting and has been for the past six years. We treat the highest number of people looking to use this fat freeze treatment and our reputation across all independent review sites is impressive.
FDA Cleared Fat Reduction Treatment
The fact we are experts in CoolSculpting is important. We believe CoolSculpting is the only fat freeze treatment you should consider. It is the only FDA cleared non-surgical fat reduction treatment and its benefits have been clearly shown in more than 50 medical journals and reports.
With CoolSculpting, the treatment is thoroughly researched and proven to carry out the intended task – freezing and removing fat in a safe way in targeted, treated areas. While there might be other versions of fat freezing that cost slightly less, they come with the risk of being potentially ineffective, with less accurate data to support safety to prove their suitability.
In the rest of this article, when we talk of fat freeze treatment we will only be referring therefore to Coolsculpting. If you want to know more about this topic, read our What is Coolsculpting (link other article) page.
Who benefits from fat freeze treatment?
Fat freeze treatment is for anyone who wants to tackle fat pockets in specific areas. For instance, an otherwise healthy person might have a build-up of fat on their thighs, or a double chin, or on their arms, stomach or other areas.
A fat freeze treatment can target just one area, or be part of a series of these treatments to tackle a few similar areas – inner and outer thighs and the tummy region for instance.
We have a gallery on this site to show examples of before and after treatments.
Fat freezing does not, however, tackle overall obesity. It is not a treatment for someone who is seriously overweight and needs to lose weight to achieve their goals.
How fat freeze treatment works?
Fat freeze treatments work by freezing the fat in a specific area. The targeted approach can eliminate the number of fat cells in multiple areas by up to 27% within six months – this is significantly more fat loss than other methods such as ultrasound, as shown in medical studies.
The fat cells are not removed instantly. Instead the freezing makes them shrivel and die and they are expelled from the body naturally over the coming weeks and months. The results begin to become visible within weeks and then become more apparent as more fat cells are expelled.
Once the cells have been frozen, killed off and expelled they are gone for good, there are huge advantages to this as we will explain.
The advantages of fat freeze treatment
Fat freeze treatments are convenient; treatments that can take as little as 35 minutes. Our clinic offers Dualsculpting. . This enables two treatments to be carried out simultaneously and so the overall treatment time is halved. It is worth noting that Dualsculpting is not suitable for all areas of the body, but we can advise on this at your consultation.
Fat freeze treatment does not usually require recovery time, so you can go about your normal activities after treatment. The treatment itself usually has minimal discomfort so mild that many people simply read or even catch up on a little sleep during treatment. Any slight swelling or redness after the freezing won’t stop you working or doing whatever else you had planned for the rest of the day.
“fat is gone for good”
Longer term advantages come with the fact that the fat is gone for good. If you were to exercise to remove stubborn fat – and we in no way wish to underplay the importance of diet and exercise are important – you would have to exercise extensively and the fat cells would still remain, even if the amount of fat they contained was reduced. With fat freezing, the fat cells are eliminated and when they are gone they’re gone for good.
Fat freeze treatment is also a treatment where there are no ongoing costs. Once the areas of fat are reduced , there is no need to have the procedure again in six months or a year.
Cost of fat freeze treatment
Prices will vary a little by clinic but it is worth remembering that if a clinic offers CoolSculpting at a far lower price it must be questioned whether the treatment being offered is CoolSculpting. If in doubt, it is possible to contact CoolSculpting as they keep a record of all clinics fully accredited to use their products.
