Fat freezing is an increasingly popular treatment used by both men and women to reduce stubborn areas of fat that exercise and diet alone can’t seem to shift. Most people can have fat freezing, as its non-invasive and relatively safe, and more affordable than most other fat reduction procedures. It also doesn’t require any downtime following treatment, so patients don’t need to take time off work or book procedures far in advance.
As can be easily seen above, there are many positives to fat freezing for those trying to reduce fat build up in the body. However, it might not be right for everyone. Fat freezing is most successful on those that are near to their target weight, or those who are committed to their fat and weight loss journey and are using fat freezing to support that journey and to motivate them to go further.
Fat freezing and weight
Fat freezing is not a weight loss treatment. If you are overweight, you won’t get the results you want from fat freezing alone. It will help you, but you must be willing to choose a healthier lifestyle as well. For those who are overweight and aren’t changing their diet or exercise, and expect fat freezing to change their bodies dramatically, will be left disappointed.
Fat freezing and cellulite
Fat freezing can help to reduce cellulite, as it reduces the number of fat cells in a target area. However, its not a cellulite treatment as such. It does not improve the skin, or the size of the existing fat cells, it will however reduce the amount of fat cells and therefore the build up fat in that area. A great non-surgical clinic treatment for the reduction of cellulite is ultrasound cavitation combined with radiofrequency. This combination treatment treats all the layers responsible for cellulite appearance, including the skin and underlying connective tissue.
Number of treatments
At Fat Freezing Manchester, the most common question that we get is: “how many treatments will I need?”. This is not an easy question, as it completely depends on the person who is having the treatment. It depends on their starting point and their desired end goals, a clinician can never decide this for you. With fat freezing it takes up to 6 weeks to see the full results, so patients are advised to have their first treatment, follow the aftercare advice, weight 6 weeks and then assess the results against their goals.
If fat freezing is used as part of a larger weight loss journey its advisable to book in multiple treatments, and using the time in between treatments wisely. Follow your exercise and diet plan carefully and follow all aftercare advise for the best results.
With treatments such as ultrasound cavitation and/or radiofrequency a course of treatments will in almost all cases be advised. With each session the patient will see small but often noticeable improvements, while slowly boosting the natural processes that will lead to more beautiful, tight skin. Treatment courses could be 3, 6 or 12 sessions long, depending on the significance of the problem and the goals of that patient.
