HIFU VS Fat Freeze | Which Body Sculpting Treatment Is The Best For You?

Fat freezing vs HIFU

Both HIFU and fat freezing are non-invasive fat reduction treatments for body contouring. However, they use completely different technology to facilitate this process.

"So, which is better?" you may ask. While that depends on your personal preference on how fast you would like to see results, the number of treatments you are willing to go for, and the amount you are willing to pay.

In this article, we will see what HIFU and fat freezing is, how can you choose between the two and if its possible to combine both treatments.

What is HIFU?

HIFU (High intensity-focused ultrasound) is a fat loss treatment that uses heat to destroy the fat cells in specific target areas, like the stomach and inner thighs and more.

In addition, it also boosts collagen growth for tighter, firmer skin. HIFU is non-invasive, has little to no recovery time and works almost instantly.

What is fat freeze?

Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat freeze, is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that uses cold temperatures to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. The -8 degrees cold temperature used during fat freezing, destroy fat cells and causes them to die. The dead fat cells are removed from the body through its natural elimination system.

Fat-freezing treatments are good for removing stubborn fat in areas that still have fat bulges despite exercising and dieting.

How to choose between fat freeze and HIFU

If you are seeking a fat reduction technique with faster results, fat freezing is more suitable. However, if you prefer a slight fat reduction method with more enhancing skin tightening effects, HIFU is for you.

HIFU is also commonly used on the face to promote collagen production.

Can I combine both treatments?

Yes, you can use these body contouring methods at the same time to lose body fat and tighten your skin. We would recommend doing HIFU after fat freezing as fat freezing reduces the amount of fats in the body and may cause slight skin loosening. HIFU is the perfect complimentary to it, as it promotes collagen production and firm skin.

Is Freezing Fat Permanent?

You may still gain weight if you do not maintain your diet. Although our competitors might try to tell you that the results are permanent, we want you to know that this still depends on having the appropriate diet plan.

If you do one or two sessions but then eat 5000 calories, you're still going to experience weight gain. If you're doing the sessions and maintaining your ideal body weight, the results often last a long time.
