Along with the desire for transformational results, considering cosmetic treatments often goes hand-in-hand with a few worries and reservations; particularly with the newer procedures to the market such as fat freezing.
Fear not, as we are here to dispel all of your doubts and fears surrounding this revolutionary, non-surgical solution to stubborn and unwanted fat.
So, what barriers do patients face when considering fat freezing?
Many patients are apprehensive about the safety of the procedure, and we are pleased to report that it is actually very safe. Firstly, all treatments are carried out by our highly trained professionals who are on hand to reassure and explain every step of the way, should you have any concerns. The thought of freezing fat may seem daunting and a little strange, however the procedure itself essentially just triggers, speeds up and helps along the natural process of ‘apoptosis’. This is when exposure to very cold temperatures cause fat cells to die. Our body later disposes of these cells as they are no longer needed, resulting in the loss of fat in the target area as desired.
Sounds too good to be true? Trust us – it really is that simple! The main draw of fat freezing is that it is non-invasive and non-surgical. There is no need for anesthetic, the skin barrier is not compromised and you can carry on with your normal daily routine after leaving the clinic, knowing that you’ll be left with natural results.
Another common question we hear, is ‘does fat freezing hurt?’
The answer is no, in most cases fat freezing does not cause pain. Due to the nature of the vacuum-like suction and sub-zero temperatures, patients can expect to feel quite chilly whilst experiencing some strange stretching sensations. After a short while this is replaced by numbness and you can sit back and relax whilst those fat cells are zapped away.
Once your treatment has come to an end, your targeted area will continue feel the frosty effects of those sub-zero temperatures, but after a few short minutes, the skin will begin to thaw out and return to normal. Some patients may experience some light bruising, minor swelling or sensitivity in the days following the treatment, however this is completely normal and to be expected.
What are you waiting for?
