What is fat freezing?

Understanding what a coolsculpting procedure is will help you understand why you need to let your body recover after your first session of cryolipolysis procedure. Fat freezing treatment is a non-invasive treatment to eliminate fat. The science behind fat-freezing treatments is quite simple. It eliminates fat with intense cold temperatures as fatty tissues are more sensitive to cold temperatures than other types of cells in your body. When exposed to extreme cold, the fatty tissue dies while keeping the surrounding cells and skin surface unharmed.

A membrane is laid on the areas of the body with unwanted fat and the fat freeze machine uses a handheld device with a suction cup to freeze the stubborn fat pockets. The intense freezing temperatures will kill fat cells. The dead fat cells are destroyed and then get flushed out of your system in standard natural ways.

How long should you wait between sessions?

The minimum recommended duration for fat freeze treatment at the same body part is 4 weeks after the initial treatment. This is because it takes time for your body to recover and remove the dead fat cells via the lymphatic system. Since results are only visible after a few weeks, some may prefer to wait to see results before deciding if they would like another session.

Based on a study, a single session may cause up to a 25% of fat reduction in total body fat. This is highly dependent on the size of the treatment area and the fat distribution of that area. Those who observe less drastic results may choose to go for another session after a month.

How many sessions of fat freeze do you need?

As a business that does 800+ treatments a month, we've seen clients get great results as quickly as in 3 sessions. However, others take 10 sessions and this is because everyone has different body goals and reactions to the treatment. Other factors that affect the number of sessions needed include the size of the treatment area and the equipment used.

The fat cells that are destroyed through cryolipolysis treatment are eliminated and will not return to the treated area. However, new fat cells can be generated, and the remaining fat cells can still swell with subsequent weight gain. Thus, we do recommend clients maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.

Take away

Fat Freezing is one of the highly advanced treatments for fat reduction. However, due to its non-invasive nature, it does require time for your body to respond and hence affects the frequency of your treatment.

You should wait for a minimum of four weeks before attending the next session. In the meantime, maintain a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle after treatment sessions to preserve the results. For the best-tailored results, consult an experienced medical professional and follow the recommended treatment plan.
