Establishing nutritious eating patterns and keeping yourself physically active can go a long way in helping you maintain a healthy body weight. Unfortunately, wholesome lifestyle habits can’t give you full control over your body shape.
Just as you can’t control where your body stores excess fat, you can’t control which fat stores your body burns away when you drop a few pounds. Unwanted bulges that linger despite your best efforts are known as persistent fat.
If you have pockets of persistent fat you’d like to reduce — but you’re not interested in having surgical liposuction — we can help. At Smooth Body Contours, our skilled team offers several noninvasive body contouring solutions, including FDA-cleared fat freezing treatments. Here’s how it can benefit you.
Fat freezing is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that uses advanced controlled cooling technology to target and shrink — or spot-reduce — unwanted areas of persistent fat and help you attain the shape you haven’t been able to create through diet and exercise alone.
Fat freezing, also known by the medical term cryolipolysis, uses a special applicator device that combines light vacuum pressure with intense cold to crystallize fat beneath the surface of your skin. Because adipose (fat) cells freeze at higher temperatures than epidermal (skin) cells, the treatment doesn’t affect your skin tissues.
This targeted fat-crystallizing cold damages the targeted adipose cells beyond repair, making them useless for future fat storage. Your lymphatic system treats the impaired cells as waste and systematically flushes them from your body. As the fat flushing process unfolds over the course of a few weeks, you’ll see noticeable slimming in the treatment area.
Fat freezing treatment areas
Proven science and backed by real results, noninvasive fat freezing can help you slim down virtually any area of diet- and exercise-resistant fat that your body hangs on to — despite your best efforts in the kitchen and at the gym.
If you’re at or near your goal weight, but you’re still bothered by stubborn bulges of persistent fat along your midsection, thighs, back, arms, or chin, cryolipolysis can help you reveal your best body. At Smooth Body Contours, we can use fat freezing to treat persistent fat on your:
- Upper knees
- Chin and jawline
- Midsection (belly)
- Thighs (inner, outer)
- Flanks (love handles)
- Upper back (bra line)
- Upper arms (chicken wings)
- Lower buttocks (banana roll)
Simply put, fat freezing body contouring makes it easier than ever to get rid of unwanted areas of stubborn fat — safely, effectively, and without surgery.
During and after fat freezing
As a noninvasive body contouring technique, fat freezing requires no advanced preparation or post-treatment downtime; you can resume normal activities as soon as your session ends.
During your treatment
To perform fat freezing, we place a gel pad over the treatment area, then situate the special applicator over the gel pad. Next, we activate the cryolipolysis platform, which progressively lowers the temperature through the applicator device.
As the controlled cooling takes effect, you feel light vacuum pressure and intense cold in the treatment area, which becomes temporarily numb as the fat cells beneath your skin begin to crystallize. Once your treatment time ends, we massage the area to help break up the fat cells for more efficient removal through your lymphatic system.
Once your lymphatic system identifies these crystallized fat cells as useless waste, it begins to flush them away. You can expect to start seeing significant slimming in the treated area about a month after your session, with continued improvement as time goes on.
Reveal your best body today
You may get the desired body contouring results after just one fat freezing session, or you may need a series of treatments to reach their aesthetic goals. No matter how many fat freezing sessions are in your personalized cryolipolysis plan, you can always expect a gentle treatment that doesn’t require any post-procedural recovery.
