What is Freezing Fat?

Posted by Nima | October 7, 2020

Ugh, fat. That pesky thing that all of us have! Some have little, some have a bit more, and then there is the reason that you are reading this now. Whatever question you put in your browser; we are here to answer. Freezing fat? What is it? Does it truly work? How does it even work? And of course, does it hurt? These are all good questions to be asking. These questions and more will be answered in the article. Let’s first get some definitions out on the table. 

Freezing Fat AKA CoolSculpting 

Alright, what is this CoolSculpting thing you’ve heard whisperings about. CoolSculpting is a new innovative way to get rid of stubborn fat areas. Perhaps you have just had a baby (congratulations)! You’ve been eating right and working out to get rid of that extra baby fat. Yeah, you lost some, but that area right where that baby was? It won’t go away. That’s where CoolSculpting comes in! CoolSculpting targets fat cells in specific areas with an intense cooling. This is why we call it freezing fat, we freeze the fat that you just can’t get rid of. CoolSculpting is a non-intrusive way of getting rid of that stubborn fat. You read that correctly, no surgery. By using CoolSculpting you get rid of those stubborn fat cells, for good and with little to no down time. CoolSculpting is the only FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved fat removal treatments, so you know it’s safe. After going through the treatments your body naturally removes the fat cells itself over time. The fat cells that are frozen can never come back.  

How does it work?  

After your consultation you’ll know how many sessions, where the sessions will be done, and how long those sessions will take. At your first appointment you will come in, we set up the machine and you just sit and relax. During your session you may feel a strong tugging sensation and that area will be very, very cold (why do you think it’s called CoolSculpting?). A lot of our customers will read, work, and listen to music while in their session. After? They head to their next engagement because CoolSculpting has no down time. That being said, there are some things that you may feel during and after the session.  

During the session: pinching, numbness, deep pulling, tugging, or discomfort.  

After the session: temporary numbness, bruising, tingling, stinging, firmness, redness, swelling, or pain. 

Other than these minor side effects there isn’t much to worry about. However, CoolSculpting is not for everyone. Some rare side effects may happen and those who have cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria should not go through this treatment. This treatment is not for everyone. Your consultation will help us decide if it will work for you. Those who have been diagnosed with Obesity should not get a CoolSculpting treatment done.  

How long until I see results?  

This answer really depends on where you get the treatment done and how many sessions you get. Some people may see results as soon as three weeks. But we here at NIMA have noticed that most patients see results in about two months. Your body may even continue to get rid of those dead fat cells up to six months. This all truly depends on one’s body type and the amount of fat cells that are being killed and flushed out. This is definitely not a “get rid of fat quick” treatment, we want you to understand that it may take a while before you see those results you’ve been looking for. But once they are gone? They are gone for good. A lot of people ask what happens if you do gain weight again post-treatment. If you do gain weight again, the weight will be more dispersed. It will not settle in the area that you had CoolSculpted. There are no post-treatment rituals you need to do, however, most of our customers are so happy with the result that they work even harder to keep the weight off and feel their best selves.  

Some folks are nervous about the reality of CoolSculpting because it seems a bit odd. But, trust us, we think it’s the best option to get rid of fat. What other options are there? Here’s a list: Liposuction, diet and exercise, radiofrequency lipolysis or vanquish, TruSculpt, Kybella (we also offer Kybella). Kybella is specifically made for “double chins” and is not an all over body treatment. Of course, we ask that you try diet and exercise before coming to us, but besides that, most of your other options are far more intrusive and require a lot of down time. The results may seem faster, but the harshness of the actual treatment may not be worth it. But, of course, it is up to you!
