Do you have stubborn areas of localized fat that you would like to get rid of? Have you already tried traditional means to eliminate it through diet and exercise and had no luck? If so, you may have heard about non-surgical body contouring procedures that freeze your fat away, which targets and naturally eliminates fat cells in localized areas without the need for incisions, surgery, or downtime.
How Does Fat Freezing Work?
Fat freezing here at Fairview Laser works by freezing stubborn fat in areas such as the tummy area, thighs, or “love handles”. The technology utilized to do this procedure will deliver controlled cooling to effectively target fat cells alone, which will then be crystallized and frozen in a process called “cryolipolysis”. The body will naturally eliminate these cells in an easy, non-invasive way that diet and exercise cannot accomplish as quickly or effectively. This process usually takes a few months, and your results will be the most noticeable within 1 to 3 months following your fat freezing session.
Fat freezing can deliver results that can be comparable to liposuction and is a great procedure to consider if you are hoping to shed the last of your troublesome areas in a way that is non-invasive and that allows you to return to your normal activities almost immediately. However, it is important to note that fat freezing is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. The best candidate for fat freezing is close to or at their ideal weight who have noticeable bulges and would like to further enhance and reshape their body contours. During your initial consultation with Dr. Jain here at Fairview Laser, we will work with you to help you determine if this treatment is the right option for you.
Is Non-Surgical Body Contouring Safe?
Fat freezing is a minimally invasive treatment with very mild side effects. However, during your consultation, it is important to review your health history to determine if this treatment is the right fit for you.
Fat freezing has almost zero downtime associated with it, meaning you can return to your regular day to day activities almost immediately following your session. For a couple of weeks after, you may notice slight numbness in the area while the fat is in the process of being frozen. It is also normal to experience slight bruising in the treatment area, as well as tenderness and mild redness.
Are Non-Surgical Body Contouring Results Permanent?
After your fat freezing procedure, your results will be permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle, weight, and diet following your session. Cryolipolysis is a permanent process of freezing and eliminating the fat cells naturally. This is why the process takes time, as your full results can take several weeks up to a few months to be noticeable. Once the fat is frozen and eliminated, it will remain eliminated unless weight is gained following your procedure. We find that many of our patients are very motivated to stay close to their ideal weight after seeing the results following their fat freezing treatment.
What Results Can I Expect From Fat Freezing?
Although the extent of your results will definitely vary from patient to patient, you can expect a noticeable fat loss through a series of non-surgical body contouring treatments. You will usually start noticing subtle effects in as little as a few weeks, but the most dramatic results will be noticeable within 1 to 3 months. This is because the body takes time to naturally eliminate the frozen and crystallized fat cells, and you can expect your body to continue doing this for up to 6 months after your procedure. Your non-surgical body contouring results can be further enhanced with a series of 2 to 4 treatments, although this will depend on the treatment you choose to do and the area you are targetting.
