Fat Freeze VS Fat Melting: Which Is Better?
Both fat melting and fat freezing are non-invasive fat reduction treatments for body contouring. However, they use entirely different technology to facilitate this process.
"So, which is better?" you may ask. That depends on the treatment area size, the price you are willing to pay, and the results you seek.
In this article, we will see what fat melting and fat freezing is and how you can choose between the two.
What is fat melting?
Fat melting uses heat through selective radiofrequency (RF) energy to remove the fats. It causes shrinkage of stubborn fat cells and subsequent elimination through the body's natural processes. It also triggers the body’s natural healing responses which stimulate collagen production, hence it is a great treatment for areas with loose skin.
Fat melting is popular among people who have not been able to achieve their desired results from dieting and exercise, as well as those who have had unsatisfactory results from surgery.
What is fat-freezing?
Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat freezing, is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperatures to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. Fat cells die from the -8 degrees cold temperature used during fat freezing. Similar to fat melting, the dead fat cells are removed from the body through

How to choose between fat freeze and fat melting?
For areas with deeper layers of fats, fat freezing may be more suitable. However, if you would like fat removal with enhancing effects on the skin, such as cellulite improvements and skin tightening effects, fat melting is more suitable. Fat-melting radiofrequency technology can also be used on the face to improve skin appearance.
Fat freezing requires fewer treatment sessions than fat melting. However, it may be more painful to some as it creates a pulling sensation during the treatment, compared to fat melting which only uses heat.
Can I combine both treatments?
Yes, you can use these body contouring methods around the same period of time for fat removal. However, you can't do it on the same day, we would recommend doing fat melting 7-10 days after your fat-freezing session.
Fat freezing is better at breaking down excess fat that is deep within the layers of the skin, while fat melting using radio frequency is better at targeting fats underneath the skin and helping with skin elasticity and uniform appearance. The combination of treatments can give you a more dramatic reduction in the appearance of excess body fat.
