Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing Singapore

Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing

Are you seeking a gentle and effective way to enhance your natural shape safely?

Cryolipolysis, a treatment that has gained popularity in recent years, involves targeting specific body parts and freezing the fat cells in those areas. Human fat cells are vulnerable to sub-zero temperatures, causing them to die off. The body then naturally eliminates these fat cells through the lymphatic system. As a result, fat is reduced in the targeted area, leading to a more toned appearance, often visible within a few weeks.

During the process, you can expect to experience minimal discomfort. However, individuals with sensitive skin may encounter temporary bruising or redness after undergoing the treatment.

Cryolipolysis is an excellent method for targeting unwanted fat in areas that are challenging to tone through diet or lifestyle changes, such as the double chin, back, and stomach.

Which conditions and areas can be treated with cryolipolysis?

Thighs (or saddlebags)
Inner armpit
Hips (love handles)
Double Chin
Back braline

You should experience minimal discomfort throughout the process, but anyone with sensitive skin may experience temporary bruising or redness after receiving the treatment.

Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing

Key benefits include:

  1. No rebound effect: The results achieved through cryolipolysis are sustainable, and there is no tendency for the fat to return after the treatment.
  2. Clinically proven: Cryolipolysis has been clinically tested and proven to be effective in reducing targeted fat areas.
  3. Non-invasive and no anesthesia required: The procedure is non-invasive, meaning it does not involve any surgical incisions, and it does not require anesthesia.
  4. Non-surgical and safe: Cryolipolysis is a safe treatment option, as it does not involve any surgical procedures or require any downtime for recovery.

What is Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing?

Cryolipolysis, also known as fat freezing, is a non-surgical treatment designed to effectively and gently remove excess fat from specific areas of the body that may not have responded to changes in diet or increased physical exercise.

The process involves the use of medical-grade cryolipolysis technology, which cools the fat cells in the targeted area, causing them to break down and become easily removable. Fat cells are particularly susceptible to cold temperatures, while the surrounding tissues remain unharmed.

By choosing cryolipolysis, you can expect noticeable results with a natural appearance, and your overall body contour will become smoother. The treatment is suitable for both men and women, as the machine used has various applicators that can be tailored to fit different bodily curves.

After the treatment is complete, therapists or doctor will remove the device and gently massage the layer of fat in the targeted area to shape it back into a more desirable form.

The science behind non-surgical fat freezing

Using cooling technology, this particular procedure crystallises the body’s fat cells in the targeted area; these fat cells then self-destruct under temperatures reaching as low as -9 degrees celsius. In turn, this process triggers the cells’ safe and natural death – this is known as termed apoptosis.

As the fat cells alone are vulnerable to such cold temperatures, the surrounding tissue remains healthy and unaffected.
Once the fat cells are frozen (or crystallised), they are then broken down and will naturally leave the body through the lymphatic system in the weeks following the treatment. Regular exercise can help quicken the process, helping you to achieve more noticeable results in a shorter period of time.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. How long does a cryolipolysis session last?
Each cryolipolysis session at Define Aesthetics Medical Clinic, Singapore, lasts in the region of 60 minutes per area. The session may take longer if you’re receiving treatment to multiple areas, although in some instances, two areas can be treated simultaneously.

2. Can I carry on with my normal activities after a cryolipolysis session?
After your treatment, you can expect minimal downtime. While some redness and swelling may occur, you can continue with your normal activities immediately after the session.
3. When can I expect to see results from the cryolipolysis?
There are no immediate results, as the fat cells are gradually eliminated by the immune system in the weeks after your treatment. You can expect to see results in six to ten weeks; in the months that follow, you will continue to lose fat from your treated area(s).
4. How many sessions of cryolipolysis are needed?
While results vary from patient to patient, it is generally recommended to attend one or two sessions in order to achieve the results you desire.

5. Can the cryolipolysis tech tighten loose skin, as well?
No, this machine is unable to tighten loose skin – you may need to tighten any loose skin with another procedure such as PEMF Legacy or Fotona Tightsulpting which is also available in our centre.

6. What aftercare is required?
Although fat cells are expelled from the body in the weeks after cryolipolysis, you’re advised to live a healthy lifestyle after treatment in order to maintain the results. It’s also important to drink two to three litres of water each day, as this will help flush any dead fat cells from your body.
