The technology that led to fat freezing in fact originated after research was done into frostbite, and it was noted that fat cells would freeze before the skin cells froze, leaving the latter unharmed. The fat cells then later died, and were removed from the body by apoptosis – part of the body’s natural recycling done by the lymphatic system. Scientists then set out to look at how this could be used to treat excess subcutaneous fat, leading to the modern fat freezing treatments we see today.
Our fat freezing treatments in Birmingham lasts around 45 minutes, and bar feeling a bit cold and numb in the area treated, our clients can go about their daily lives with an absolute minimum of disruption. On occasion, they have reported slight bruising, but this is from the suction, rather than the fat freezing, and generally subsides in less than a week.
This is an effective and long-lasting treatment for fat loss (not weight loss, it’s worth mentioning), and we recommend a minimum course of four sessions and a healthy diet for best results. The treatment takes around 10-12 weeks to have noticeable slimming and toning effects, so remember to commit to a series of appointments to see the best results. Good to know if you’re planning for a big day where you have to look your best!
At MySkin we recommend fat freezing for people wanting to smooth and contour their hard-to-tone areas, as the treatment is not designed to help drop the pounds. If you’re looking to treat larger areas, take a look at our Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment, which is designed precisely for this. Please note that this treatment is not suitable for pregnant/breastfeeding women. For everyone else, however, it’s a great way to help you fit into those new jeans.
If you’re looking for effective, long-lasting treatment to improve problem areas and boost your body confidence, then a course of fat freezing in Birmingham is a painless way to get solid results after just a few sessions. Give us a call to find out more, or you can browse our shop!
Fat freezing is a highly effective, non-invasive fat-reduction treatment that uses innovative technology to contour your body by freezing unwanted fat all over your body - fat cells are frozen for a period of time with the aim of reducing pockets of subcutaneous fat, and it’s a non-surgical treatment.
It involves no surgery and minimal expected downtime. With MySkin's training and expertise, we can work alongside you to sculpt, contour and transform both men and women. This painless, non-invasive fat loss solution has become very popular thanks to its reduced risk and recovery time compared to traditional liposuction.
Fat freezing is best used on very specific, localised spots rather than for treating larger areas - so bear this in mind if you're looking for more drastic, wide-ranging results.
After your fat freezing session at MySkin Birmingham, your body will naturally metabolise the treated fat cells, and it's possible you'll see results in as little as 4 weeks, although experience tells us that it'll take a little longer.
The effects of the first fat freezing session last around 12 weeks, provided you follow a suitable diet, at which point you can return for your next session with your consultant.
Once the treated fat cells are frozen, the body metabolises them and they are naturally eliminated from the body - so they're gone for good. There's no need for a special diet or lots of exercise, but a quality diet will certainly help you prolong the effects of the treatment.
During your consultation for your fat freezing session in Birmingham, your MySkin technician can explain how the procedure works and give you a good idea of the length of treatment needed to get the results you're looking for. As mentioned, the treatment is most effective on targeted areas, so bear this in mind when you have your consultation.
As one of the most popular treatments for fat loss, at MySkin we can say with 100% certainty that fat freezing is completely safe. Swelling, if it occurs, tends to last a day or two, and as a non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime.
Medical research into fat freezings sums the treatment up as follows: 'Cryolipolysis is a promising procedure for nonsurgical fat reduction and body contouring and presents a compelling alternative to liposuction and other, more invasive methods. This procedure appears to be safe in the short term, with a limited side effect profile, and results in significant fat reduction when used for localized adiposities.'
Fat freezing is then best used on specific spots, rather than on large areas - so this is worth bearing in mind when you're considering this as a treatment.
No, you can't freeze fat away at home with ice packs - we've seen those articles too! When you come to MySkin in Birmingham for fat freezing, you're paying for cutting edge technology in the hands of a professional that can focus on your problem areas - and that has proven results with a subtly contoured body that helps you fit into the clothes you want.
Trying fat freezing at home with ice packs is like cutting your hair at home with a bread knife - wrong tools, you can't see what you're doing, and it doesn't really work. No cutting corners, invest in yourself, and get the results you deserve! Now put away the ice packs...
This fat-loss treatment is specially designed for people who have unwanted fat in specific spots, such as the remnants of a 'spare tyre' - fat freezing is used to target these smaller areas in a non-invasive way, and so is ideal for people who don't want to consider more drastic surgery.
A course of treatments is the best way to make sure that you get all the targeted areas covered - and so a consultation with us is a perfect way to get an idea of how many sessions you might need by speaking to our experienced MySkin practitioners.
That way you can discuss where you want to focus on, what your goals are, and get excited about your potential results!
Remember that fat freezing is designed to sculpt and contour your body by breaking down the fat, so you may not see any difference on the scale - but don't fear.
Our clients have reported better proportioning and dropping dress, bra or trouser sizes after a series of treatments (a series being the operative word here - you're unlikely to see any difference after a single treatment, remember) - and that's what the love about the treatment.
Our practitioners would say it's certainly not the worst - but it's a little like that dull ache you get when you're warming your hands up after being out in the cold.
In addition, the area treated by our machines gets squeezed and tugged around, so the area treated might be a little tender, but it doesn't last long - that's why so many people opt for fat freezing. There's little downtime and you can go straight back to work or out afterwards!
