Which fat freezing machine is the best?
Fat freezing is a fat reduction solution that promises a visible reduction in fat of up to 27 per cent in the treated area within just three months following your procedure. And all with no surgery or downtime. It’s no surprise that fat freezing procedures have risen dramatically in recent years, with more and more people turning to the non-surgical solution to help them achieve their body goals. But, with so many fat-freezing devices now available on the market, it can be challenging to determine which is safe and most effective and what to look for when visiting a clinic for your initial consultation to determine whether their offering is right for you.
What is fat freezing?
There are a fixed number of fat cells in our bodies. When we gain weight, we don’t gain additional fat cells; the existing cells simply increase in volume. Similarly, these cells shrink when we lose weight. The most effective fat freezing device uses a technology known as cryolipolysis, to take advantage of fat cells’ natural vulnerability to the cold by freezing them until they die and are naturally eliminated by the body. The cooling applicator targets fat cells in specific areas, ensuring that other cells in that area are not harmed. The treatment is customised to each patient and can remove fat bulges in stubborn areas, such as thighs, upper arms, belly, under the chin, jawline, and back.
By targeting and destroying the fat cells, fat freezing can provide a very effective treatment option for body contouring to help you reach your personalised body goals. Fat freezing isn’t a substitute for a healthy lifestyle – rather, it’s designed to complement one. The ideal candidate is already leading a reasonably active life but has resistant, pinchable areas of fat that refuse to shift with exercise alone – making it a fantastic non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Why CoolSculpting is the world’s leading fat-freezing treatment
More than eight million CoolSculpting treatment cycles have been performed worldwide by trained professionals since the introduction of Allergan’s non-invasive fat reduction solution in 2010. This figure stands as strong testimony for the effectiveness of the world-leading treatment in removing unwanted body fat. The procedure is also highly versatile, having been approved to treat 13 different body areas. Think the stomach and bingo wings, and even the knees and ‘cankles.’ This makes it a highly effective treatment for quickly reducing stubborn fat stores without undergoing a traumatic surgical procedure like liposuction.
CoolSculpting is the most proven body contouring technology and invests in research and product evolution to deliver enhancements that provide patients with a better experience.
For example, the newest machine, the CoolSculpting Elite, can treat two areas simultaneously (say, your arms and your abdomen), meaning significantly less in-clinic time for patients.
How does CoolSculpting differ from other fat freezing devices?
Not all fat-freezing devices are created equal. CoolSculpting is the only FDA-cleared fat-freezing device, meaning it has undergone extensive trials to prove its efficiency. The results are consistent, and the device also features a patented technology that monitors the temperate throughout the treatment to help deliver optimal results and protect the skin from any cold-related damage.
CoolSculpting is the only fat-freezing technology based on precise science, backed by multiple studies, and it is also the only brand with proper protocols for every single body part. Internationally recognised as the gold standard in fat freezing, CoolSculpting can achieve up to a 27 per cent reduction in fat after a single procedure, a statistic that other fat-freezing devices simply cannot demonstrate.
