How does fat freezing work?
The science behind how this non invasive method works to reduce fat is actually quite simple. A membrane is laid on the areas of the body with unwanted body fat. Then, a handheld device with a suction cup will be used to freeze the stubborn fat pockets. Accompanied by the cold temperature, a pulling sensation will be felt. As fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than other surrounding skin and cell, controlled cooling temperature delivered by the different applicator sizes works to treat different body parts causes fat cell death without harming other cells. The intense cold temperatures will destroy fat cells. The dead fat cells then get flushed out of your system naturally leading to fat loss.
Cryolipolysis is intended for body contouring and fat removal, not solely for losing weight. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle by following a balanced diet and exercising daily can increase the effectiveness of results from the fat-freezing procedure.
So, what is the bottom line?
If you are looking for a very safe way to remove unwanted fat cells, coolsculpting may be the better choice for you. However, if you are on a budget, fat freezing is a more affordable yet effective option. Whichever route you choose, be sure to do your research on where you go for the treatment. It is important to ensure that the treatment is done by a professional.
