Various home fat freezing methods and their effectiveness

1) Ice packs

When you think of freezing fat cells at home you might think of using ice packs to freeze the stubborn fat. Some have tried placing it on their arms, thighs, stomach and chin in hopes that it will reduce the growth of subcutaneous fats. But you should not do it as this method is not effective. Ice alone is insufficient in reaching the ideal temperature of -8 degrees to freeze fat cells.

2) Lipo-belt

Is it safe to freeze away fat at your home?

Lipo-belt is a popular home fat-freezing method. Some of these belts use specially formulated gel packs, while others are fitted with cold packs and strapped around the waist. They claimed to induce a cold temperature which illicit fat cell death. However, the temperature of these belts is not regulated to a precise degree, causing it to be too cold which damages the skin or too warm to freeze the fats. It is unlikely that you will achieve your desired results from it, hence, lipo-belt is not an effective method.

3) Purchase fat freezing device at home

Purchasing fat-freezing devices at home may potentially work, but it is not without risks and inconvenience. There are a few factors to be considered here.

Firstly, it is crucial to have someone with the skills to help you put it on. Since you are working with negative temperatures, you can potentially burn your skin and cause irreversible damage. You'll need to know how the fat-freezing machines work. A professional would have a better idea of which areas of your body to place the device and how long the device should be left on the skin.

Secondly, it is very costly to own one of the best fat-freezing machines. The right fat-freezing machine that may work can cost up to a few thousand dollars. Furthermore, it is expensive to buy fat-freeze membranes individually. Beauty stores typically buy it in bulk to reduce the cost of treatment.

Lastly, you will have to do your research on which membrane to purchase for your fat-freezing treatment. These gel-like membranes are laid on the skin before the fat freeze applicator is applied. It is important to use a high-quality fat freeze membrane as it protects you from skin damage and frostbite.

If you would like to use a fat-freezing machine at home, make sure you do it in a safe manner as it can potentially result in a lot of harm, if done incorrectly.
