Fat freezing is a new and popular procedure that is non-invasive and relatively inexpensive. It was discovered by dermatologists Dieter Manstein and R. Rox Anderson in 2007 and became FDA-approved in 2010. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissues, so the cooled fat cells die without damaging the skin or other tissue. Your body then gradually clears away these dead fat cells for 4-6 months, leaving you leaner and healthier. The procedure usually costs $1,500-$3,000 per session but can cost up to $5,000 in some cases.
It’s also known as cryolipolysis, though that term is less commonly used.
The fat freezing machine cools specific fat cells with a cold solution to make them shrink and eventually die, leaving the skin looking leaner and firmer.
It’s non-invasive and compared to other fat reduction procedures, and it’s relatively painless.
Fat freezing is non-invasive and relatively painless, so you don’t have to be under general anaesthesia during the procedure. Additionally, because it’s so minimally invasive, recovery time after a fat-freezing treatment is minimal—you’ll likely be able to resume normal activities within 24 hours of your procedure.
Fat freezing may be the right choice if you’re considering undergoing a more drastic weight loss method like gastric bypass surgery or liposuction but want a less invasive option first. Although these procedures offer faster results than the fat freezing machines on average (around six weeks versus three months), they also come with several potential side effects and risks that can make them unsafe in some cases.
Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissues, so the cooled fat cells die without damaging the skin or other tissue.
How does it work? Fat cells freeze at higher temperatures than the surrounding tissues. So, as the cooling gel is applied to your skin, it will freeze the fat cells without damaging your skin. No need for anaesthesia during treatment.
In addition to having no side effects, another critical benefit of fat freezing with CoolSculpting® is that it’s fast—typically taking just an hour per session and requiring no downtime between treatments. You can continue to go about your day as usual after each session!
Your body gradually clears away these dead fat cells over 4-6 months, making you leaner and healthier.
Fat freezing is a relatively new procedure, so there is little evidence of its long-term effects. However, your body gradually clears these dead fat cells over 4-6 months, making you leaner and healthier.
People undergo this treatment because it’s quick (usually three treatments) and relatively painless. No downtime is involved, and patients can return to work after their session!
The procedure usually costs $1,500-$3,000 per session but can cost up to $5,000 in some cases.
The cost of the procedure depends on a few factors. Some areas are more complex or painful to treat than others, and if you want to treat multiple areas simultaneously, it’ll cost more. The average cost ranges from $1,500 to $3,000 per session but can reach as high as $5,000 depending on your needs and how much fat is in the treated area.
If you’re considering fat freezing, it’s essential to be sure that you understand the pros and cons of the procedure. Ultimately, we think this treatment is worth it for many people who want to improve their appearance and boost their self-confidence.
