You may well have heard or read about fat freezing, the treatment that many celebrities are believed to have had that helps them achieve the looks we see on the front page of magazines and on social media. But what exactly is it? How does it work? And how can it help you? 

What is fat freezing? 

Fat freezing, also known as cryolipolysis, with leading brand being CoolSculpting, is a non-surgical procedure where fat is frozen to the point where it crystalises. These fat cells are then naturally removed from your body thanks to your lymphatic system. The treatment started after scientists discovered that fat cells were particularly sensitive to cold temperatures when applied in a controlled manner. 

During the treatment, suction cups are placed on target areas to secure the skin and fat before the temperature is lowered. Because fat freezing is non-invasive, it is often viewed as an alternative to liposuction. A treatment session can last up to an hour and depending on the size of the area being treated, some people will require more sessions than others. 

How can it help you?

There are several key benefits to fat freezing. Firstly, as the targeted fat cells are destroyed and removed from your body, they cannot return. Furthermore, as mentioned above, fat freezing is a non-surgical treatment, which means there is no risk of scarring or the long recovery times you can find after a surgery. This allows you to continue with your life as normal after a treatment session. 

Another critical aspect of fat freezing which can help different people is how adaptable the treatment is. Everyone’s body is different, and we all have areas of fat we may wish weren’t there, but they aren’t all in the same place for everyone. Fat freezing can be carried out on various areas of your body, depending on your needs. Some people may choose to have the treatment focus on their thighs so they can fit into clothes more comfortably, while others may focus on smaller and more visible areas such as their chin or jawline. 

The results from a fat freezing treatment session are seen over several weeks rather than instantly, which provides a more natural change in appearance. Also, despite the name and what some may think, the treatment is not a painful process. This makes it easy to sit through, and you can focus on other things such as reading a book or watching some Netflix. 

What you should keep in mind

As with any beauty treatment, there are things you should keep in mind before signing up for a session. Tania Zahoor Rashid is one of the founders of Aesthetics Lab who offer fat freezing in London at their award-winning clinic. She kindly spoke with us about what people interested in fat freezing should keep in mind about the treatment. Firstly, the misconception that it is a weight-loss treatment. “On some occasions, we do have to explain to clients that fat freezing and weight loss are two different things. They don’t quite understand how you can lose fat cells but not weight” Tania said. This is important to remember as if you’re hoping that fat freezing will be the answer to your weight loss goals, you may be disappointed. 

Another point to keep in mind is that not all fat freezing treatments offered by clinics are the same. It’s essential to do your research before having a treatment session at a clinic, as they may not be using the most up to date fat freezing machines. It’s also important to understand that if a clinic is offering the treatment at a lower price than others, that does not mean it’s just a good deal and that you’re going to get the same results. Tania told us that it’s a “common misconception that all fat freezing devices are equal and that they can have a procedure done cheaper with a different device and get the same results.”

Fat freezing can offer excellent results, and it is becoming more popular, which means it can be more accessible to you. Hopefully, the information above gives you a better understanding of the treatment, but if you have any other questions, any clinic offering the treatment should be able to answer them. Thanks to Tania from Aesthetics Lab for her input with this!
