Blame it on the holiday season, but lately, a topic is back at the top of conversations: fat-freezing.
It’s not a new treatment. In fact, it has been around for several years and unlike a myriad of other fat removal procedures, fat-freezing – as the name suggests – freezes fat cells and eliminates them.
In recent years, fat-freezing is rebranded as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction thus, attracting more patrons who are looking for more effective ways to get rid of their love handles, bra bulges and excess fat under their chins.
However, in the over-competitive market of cosmetic body contouring, you may have come across myths and misconceptions about fat-freezing. At Lux Aesthetic, we take pride in offering the revolutionary CLATUU fat-freezing cryolipolysis. So, being well-informed in the ins and outs of fat-freezing, we dispel five of the most common myths about this technique.
Myth 1: It’s a great alternative to a weight loss program
Eating a balanced diet, avoiding junk food, getting adequate sleep and following a daily exercise routine are not only part of a weight loss program but a healthy lifestyle as well. It’s why there’s no way a cryolipolysis should be a replacement to them.
Furthermore, fat-freezing is not a weight loss tool either but rather a fat reduction treatment that contours small sections of stubborn fat. Thus, a healthy lifestyle alongside this treatment should do the trick to help you achieve permanent and natural-looking results.
Myth 2: It treats sagging skin
The fat-freeze slimming treatment is intended for excess fat removal and cosmetic body contouring – not for sagging skin. It’s because the revolutionary technology that allows the treatment to target fat cells under your skin is the same technology that leaves the surrounding areas unaffected. So, if you’re struggling with lax skin, this isn’t the procedure you’d need.
Nevertheless, Lux Aesthetic offers ultra facelift and other skin tightening programs that will help lift and tighten sagging skin on areas including the face, neck, upper arms, abdomen and thighs.
Myth 3: It offers instant results
As much as we’d want to promise you instant results, you will not be fat-free the next day after the treatment – not the next week either. Your body will take time to absorb the microscopic fragments of the destroyed cells before they’re flushed out from your system.
You could notice results within a month, but it typically takes at least two months for most of the effects to kick in. Most patients even attest to experiencing slimming effects long after six months. You also need to keep in mind that a healthy diet, regular exercise and maybe 2-3 sessions are required to achieve optimal results.
Myth 4: It’s painful
As mentioned, cryolipolysis is non-invasive and non-surgical. You may feel intense cold, numbness or a little discomfort as the fat-freezing tool presses and contours your skin but other than that, you’ll not have to go through any incisions so it’s technically painless.
In the days following the procedure, you may also feel some mild redness, slight swelling and tingling sensation. But, these side effects are often mild and short-lived, lasting for a week, at the least.
Myth 5: It’s effective only for the belly
Now, while it’s true that most of our patients require fat-freezing for their stomach, it’s actually versatile and is safe and effective for nearly every part of the body that is prone to store pockets of fat.
Among the other areas we treat include:
- Muffin tops
- Love handles
- Upper arms
- Thighs; and
