Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive fat removal procedure, often marketed as fat freezing. It is the cooling of subcutaneous fat cells, which induces the breaking down of the fat cells, without damaging any of the surrounding tissues or the skin. Cryolipolysis works to reduce fat in specific areas of the body and is most commonly used on the stomach and back. It is not a permanent solution to fat loss; whilst it can reduce fat cells that are already present, it cannot prevent remaining fat cells from increasing in size so individuals will have to maintain their fat loss either through a combination of diet and exercise or further Cryolipolysis procedures.
Having it for the first time?
During the procedure, two non-invasive cooling panels are applied to the skin and the area of fat that you wish to treat is drawn upwards between the two panels. This will just feel like a firm pull, with a little bit of pressure, but it will not be painful. The fat cells will then be cooled for around one to two hours, depending on your personal needs. At first, the area that is being treated will feel very, very cold but after a little while you won’t notice the temperature anymore. Many patients will chat on their phone or read a book during treatment.
