How Fat Freezing Works

Here at Cool Renewal Spa, we specialize in CoolSculpting, which is also known by the generic name of fat freezing. Fat freezing is a highly effective method of fat reduction, and one that is much less invasive than alternatives like surgical liposuction. However, our team understands that many people still don’t know very much about this procedure and may need some reassurance or convincing before they trust its effectiveness. In this article, we’ll provide a brief summary of how fat freezing works so that you can decide if this procedure is right for you.

CoolSculpting or fat freezing also goes by a third, scientific name of cryolipolysis, from Greek cryo, meaning “icy cold,” lipo, meaning “fat,” and -lysis, meaning “breaking down.” The basic principle behind the process is that chilling fat cells down to a temperature of 11 degrees Fahrenheit causes them to break down, while other types of cells will remain unaffected. Once the fat cells have been broken down, the body will naturally flush them out of your system over the next 4-6 months. In the typical fat freezing procedure, including those we offer here at Cool Renewal Spa, a fat deposit is gently suctioned into an applicator device, which will then gradually cool the area to the desired temperature. Treatment requires no incisions and causes minimal discomfort, and you’ll be able to return to your normal activities the same day.

The fat freezing services that we offer here at Cool Renewal Spa are a highly effective way to get rid of those stubborn fat deposits that no amount of exercise seems to affect. If you are interested in this treatment, give us a call today to set up a free consultation.
