How Does Cryolipolysis and Fat Freezing Work?
In a nutshell, fat freezing freezes fat cells to temperatures around minus 10 degrees, causing them to die naturally through a procedure known as apoptosis.
The Fat Freezing treatment is a safe way to deliver controlled cold to the fat cells beneath the skin. The chilling process crystallizes the fat cells. This results in the death of fat cells by a process called apoptosis, or natural cell death in layman’s terms. Over time, your body eliminates dead fat cells via the lymphatic system, resulting in a decrease in the fat layer and a more contoured outline. Cryolipolysis has little effect on other cells in the body, such as muscle and nerve cells. Prior to treatment, an antifreeze membranes pad is applied over the region to be treated to preserve the skin’s surface layer and prevent ice burns or frostbite.
Additionally, fat freezing is referred to by a variety of trade names, including Coolsculpting, 3D Lipo, Lipoglaze, and Cryo Fat Freeze. Nota bene, you must verify with your local supplier whose equipment they are using and the outcomes they have previously achieved. It’s critical to read their web reviews, client testimonials, and before and after images.
Consider your fat cells to be grapes or raisins when describing the fat freezing process. They do not need to be created or multiplied in order to accumulate fat; they just become plumper as you gain weight (grapes). The fat freezing technique destroys the targeted fat cells, preventing them from becoming plump and deflating (raisin). As a result, the fat in the area treated with fat freezing is reduced, resulting in a reduction in total size.
Eliminate Your Fat Cells Through Peeing
As the fat cells are destroyed during the fat freezing procedure, the dead fat cells are carried through the lymphatic system and removed from the body as waste. This implies that following the surgery, you will need to drink plenty of water because the deceased fat cells will pass via your urine.
Because fat freezing is a painless treatment, while Apoptosis may seem intense for your fat cells, you will experience no discomfort in your body. This occurs in the background as you go about your regular activity. That is truly all there is to it!
YES, you will be eliminating fat cells through peeing.

Are the Fat Freezing Results Permanent?
Yes, it is permanent. Fat is permanently eliminated with fat freezing because fat cells die and are expelled over a period of weeks following treatment. On average, it takes 6–12 weeks for fat cells to be eliminated from the body.
Numerous research corroborates this and demonstrates how effective fat freezing truly is. For instance, in one case study, two early individuals had fat freezing on one flank, allowing for continued comparisons. Years later, they were checked, and significant changes were observed after two months, two years, and six years of treatment. To read the case study in its entirety, click here.
How Numerous Treatments Are Required?
While some people are content with just one treatment, the general recommendation is that one to three treatments will be required on the majority of body parts. It is recommended that you wait at least six weeks between treatments to guarantee that you experience effects from your initial treatment.
On average, you should anticipate losing between 25% and 40% of the fat pulled into the machine’s handles per treatment. We utilise the most advanced 360-degree fat freezing technology, which ensures that more fat is frozen on the day of treatment. Please keep in mind that this is an average amount and that individual responses vary, with some losing more and others losing less. Consult our testimonials page to learn what our clientele has to say.
Consequences of Fat Freezing
The most common adverse effects of Fat Freezing are mild, especially when compared to surgical liposuction, and are usually of little concern.
Typical Adverse Reactions:
• Numbness or puffiness in the area of treatment.
• Redness, occasionally accompanied by bruising. This varies from person to person but is typically mild and brief.
• Tingling or pins and needles – normally subsides within 1–2 hours.
Less Common Adverse Reactions:
• Cramping of the Abdomen
Serious Adverse Reactions (none have been recorded at Facelift365):
• Frostbite/ice burns These can arise when antifreeze pads are installed incorrectly, are not utilized at all, or are of low quality. Certain clinics may reuse the membranes, and it is critical that you choose a reputable facility with positive evaluations and NOT one with low prices.
• If you suffer from ice burns, get medical attention and contact the facility where you had treatment. They will recover rapidly if treated properly.
• Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia – a very unusual complication that may result in an increase in fat in the treated area.
