Fat freezing is administered in a doctor’s office or at a certified medispa. Reading reviews can be helpful in choosing the right provider for your needs. Additionally, browsing before and after shots is a surefire way to give you an idea of what fat freezing can realistically achieve. If you’re not sure how to get started finding a provider, ask our team of trained aesthetic specialists for help.
You’ll enter a treatment room and potentially change into a comfortable gown, then either sit or lay down (depending on the area you’re treating). The clinician will sterilize the area, mark the treatment areas on your body, slick on a conducting gel pad, and then then apply a fat freezing applicator based on your customized treatment plan. The applicator covers the entire treatment area, gently holds the skin in place, and slowly freezes fat cells to the point of cell death. Once eliminated, these fat cells cannot come back. One application typically takes as little as 35 minutes — but that doesn’t mean you have to stare at the ceiling the entire time. In fact, many patients use treatments to catch up on work emails or their group chat.
One of the best aspects of fat freezing is that there is little to no downtime. Many people are able to go about their day immediately post-treatment. That said, some patients experience soreness for a few days after a session — but the feeling is manageable.
It depends on the individual patient. Usually, there is little to no visible difference after the initial fat freezing session. Results usually begin to appear within 1-3 months after treatment and some may need two or more sessions, though the results can take weeks to months to fully materialize. All good things take time, right?
Because each person’s body and desired outcome differs, it’s virtually impossible to determine how many sessions you’ll need without a professional’s help. Before starting your fat freezing regimen, your specialist will schedule a consultation, where they can give you a personalized estimate of your treatment timeline. Usually, patients need to wait a few weeks between sessions. So if you’re scheduling your treatment in anticipation of a major event, plan accordingly: you’ll want to start months in advance of the big day.
