9 Interesting Facts about WellaFreeze Fat Freeze or Cryolipolysis

9 Interesting Facts about WellaFreeze Fat Freeze or Cryolipolysis

1. Fat Freeze is Cryolipolysis

Fat Freeze is technically known as Cryolipolysis, which means cooling down fat cells down to a temperature initiating the apoptosis process. It also goes by the term Coolsculpting Singapore. In short, Fat Freeze kills and disposes the fat cells targeted. This fat freezing treatment is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure that uses low temperatures to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. During the procedure, the practitioner vacuums the skin above the area of fatty tissue into an applicator that cools the fat cells. The cold temperatures numb the area, and some people report feeling a cooling sensation. 


2. Our Body Clears the Frozen Fat Cells Effectively

Our body is really good at making sure we don’t have cells we no longer need left around and breaks them down after they have been frozen during treatment. A 2015 review Trusted Source published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery analysed 19 previous studies of cryolipolysis.

Researchers found that when the studies had measured fat reduction with a caliper, which is a tool similar to a ruler, people lost an average of 14.67 to 28.5 percent of the fat in areas treated by cryolipolysis. When the studies measured the fat reduction with ultrasound, people with body contours lost 10.3 percent to 25.5 percent of fat.

3. We Really Do Pee Away the Fat cells!

Peeing, pooping, sweating and breathing is all part of the natural process of ridding ourselves of waste. The fat cells that are killed by the treatment is disposed through the lymphatic system. There are no major health risk factors associated with the procedure. There was no reduction in liver function or lipid levels, meaning that WellaFreeze Fat Freezing is purely a cosmetic procedure. 

4. The Treated Area May Feel Like a Chilled Chicken Thigh

Immediately after treatment, the areas will of course feel colder but it rarely freeze solid. The skin will be pink for a while, but this will last for between 30 to 60 minutes after. ​Most cryolipolysis procedures take around an hour. There is no recovery time because there is no damage to the skin or tissue. Some people report soreness at the site of fat freeze, similar to that they might have after an intense workout or minor muscle injury.

After the procedure, it may take around 4–6 months for the fat cells to leave the body. In that time, the area of fat will decrease by an average of 20 percent.

5. Results are not Instant and You will Need to Be Patient

How long does it take to see results from fat freezing? WellaFreeze fat freeze in Singapore has results that can be seen in as little as three weeks. As the body takes time to naturally dispose the dead fat cells, you will take between 30 days to 90 days to see the full extend of the treatment. 

The best ways to improve the results is to maintain a healthy lifestyle and to exercise regularly. If you combine these two things with the treatment, it can help to optimise the results achieved.

Because it takes some time for the dead fat cells to break down and then flush out of the system, you need to pay attention to what you are eating. If you fall back into your old habits, you aren’t going to achieve satisfying results.

Another way to improve results is with massage. Try to massage the treated area for five minutes after treatment. Doing this can help improve fat reduction by up to 68 percent after the initial two months.

Drinking more water may also help improve results of Coolsculpting. While there’s no documented proof, many doctors recommend this. That’s because when your body is properly hydrated, it flushes dead cells more efficiently.

6. WellaFreeze is Not Just for the Belly

While the belly or stomach is the most popular treatment area, other areas ideal for fat freezing includes many areas. The hips, inner thighs, lower back, upper arms or even chin can be treated. 

​The abdominal area is the most common area treated with Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing). Stubborn fat can accumulate in both men and women of all ages, even with regular exercise and diet the stubborn fat may stay in this area and this can be very disheartening. For men, its the beer belly, surgery, medication; for woman, its after pregnancy, medication, hormone change and more. It can be very difficult to get rid of this stubborn body fat in your stomach area by yourself, but thankfully it is one of the best body areas for Cryolipolysis treatment. It helps clients achieve flatter stomachs, flatter abs that they can really sculpt through further exercise, and boost body confidence in all genders and ages.

7. WellaFreeze can Also Treat Man Boops or Gynecomastia

Man boobs – medically, gynaecomastia – is often the result of a hormone imbalance, when a man’s ratio of oestrogen to testosterone shifts too far to the female side. It’s a problem that affects around half of all men, according to the Cleveland Clinical Journal of Medicine.

WellaFreeze can also be used effectively to treat male chest reduction or gynaecomastia, the swelling of beast tissue in males. 

8. Side Effects are Very Minimal or Non-existent

Side effects are very minimal and only include pinkness that lasts up to an hour after the treatment. There is also no down-time.

​The most common side effect during treatment is a tugging sensation which is something most people endure with no pain. The side effects recorded afterwards are minimal, and most patients will experience a little bit of redness, bruising, minor swelling, sensitivity, numbness in the area that was treated.
