What is Fat Freeze?

Fat Freeze, also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that freezes and destroys fat cells, resulting in a slimmer and more toned appearance. The procedure is approved by the FDA and has been used successfully for many years.

Best Body Parts for Fat Freeze

Fat Freeze can be used on various areas of the body, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, back, arms, and chin. However, it is most effective on areas with pinchable fat that can be pulled into the applicator. Generally, cryolipolysis is more effective in targeting surface fats.

Tips to Maximize Fat Freeze Treatment

To get the best results from your Fat Freeze treatment, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle, including a balanced diet and regular exercise. Additionally, it is recommended to drink plenty of water before and after the treatment to help flush out the fat cells. It is also important to consult with a certified aesthetician to determine if Fat Freeze is the right treatment for you.

Does Fat Freeze Work on the Stomach?

Wellaholic’s Guide to Fat Freeze: Stomach Fat Edition

Do you find that stubborn fat accumulates in your stomach area? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Both men and women of all ages struggle with this common problem. Despite exercise and diet, it can be challenging to achieve the desired flat stomach or washboard abs. But fear not, because this is where WellaFreeze or fat freezing comes in.

Why is Stomach Fat the Best Body Area for Fat Freezing?

The stomach or belly is the most common area treated with fat freezing. This area tends to accumulate stubborn fat that can be resistant to diet and exercise. Men may develop a beer belly, while women may experience post-pregnancy, medication, or menopause-related weight gain. Fortunately, stomach or belly fat is the best body area for fat freezing.

What Are the Results of Fat Freezing on Stomach Fat?

After six to twelve weeks, most patients who received cryolipolysis treatment on the stomach area see a 30% reduction in stomach fat. With a combination of fat freeze, diet, and exercise, you can achieve the flat stomach or washboard abs you desire.

Does Fat Freeze Work on the Arms?

Wellaholic’s View on Fat Freezing for Arms and Love Handles

A decrease in metabolic rate means that more fat gets accumulated at the belly (a.k.a. beer belly), as well as the stubborn love handles

Concerned about flabby arms and love handles? These areas are common deposits for stubborn fat that can be eliminated with cryolipolysis. Fat freezing is a well-tolerated treatment that causes fat cell death at very cold temperatures. This is an ideal treatment for those who have stubborn fat that is resistant to exercise and dieting. Here are some key points to note:

Flabby Arms:

  • The underside of your arms, where your triceps are, is a common deposit for stubborn fat.
  • Fat freezing can eliminate stubborn fat in this area, followed by RF body sculpting to tone and sculpt the arms.
  • The cold temperature may be slightly uncomfortable, but the treatment is well-tolerated by most patients.
  • Clients may experience localised soreness similar to that of a minor muscle injury or intense workout.

Love Handles:

  • The waist and love handles are common areas for fat to be deposited.
  • Love handles are deposits of excess fat at the side of one’s waistline.
  • Fat retention is the underlying cause of love handles.
  • Fat freezing can eliminate stubborn fat in this area, resulting in a change in the shape of your body.

Overall, fat freezing is an effective treatment for eliminating stubborn fat in specific areas of the body. With a combination of fat freeze, diet, and exercise, you can achieve the toned and sculpted body you desire.

When you age, the back fat becomes a more pertinent issue. This is because as you age, the multiple layers of different muscles in the back will start to sag and loosen over time.

Does Fat Freeze Work on the Back?

Say goodbye to back fat with fat freezing!

Back fat can be a pesky issue that becomes more noticeable as you age. Sagging muscles in the back can cause fat to fill in between spaces, resulting in unsightly bulges. This is especially true in the lower back area, which is often located near the stomach, love handles, and thighs. But fear not, fat freezing can also effectively target the back area and get rid of unwanted fat. With this treatment, you can say goodbye to back fat and hello to a more toned and sculpted body.

Does Fat Freeze Work on the Thighs?

The inner and outer thighs are gradually becoming a very popular treatment requested by our clients. The thigh tends to have more muscle than other areas, such as your stomach and love handles. However, the inside and in some cases the outside of your thighs are areas that can be effectively treated with Cryolipolysis. It can help give you that thigh gap you haven’t had for years, and trim down your thighs so that they look more toned and also more defined.

Many individuals may suffer from an issue with double chin. A double chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops beneath the chin.

Does Fat Freeze Work on the Chin?

Many individuals may suffer from an issue with double chin. A double chin is caused by an extra layer of fat that develops beneath the chin. The skin can start to lose its elasticity as the body ages, which can lead to the appearance of extra or saggy skin that may contribute to a double chin. While weight gain is not always the cause of a double chin, it can contribute to it. A diet high in calories, processed foods, and unhealthful fats may influence weight gain and a double chin as well. At Wellaholic, we do have mini applicators designed to treat double chin.

Does Fat Freeze Work on the Buttocks?

Banana roll fat is a type of excess bum fat that accumulates just below the buttock area. It typically collects between the lower buttock and the top of the thigh and looks as if a crescent-shaped roll of fat has been placed just below the buttocks.

Coolsculpting is approved for treating these banana rolls, giving the appearance of a perkier, more round buttocks. The CoolSculpting procedure is FDA approved, non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise.

A waist-to-hip ratio higher than 0.85 in women and 0.90 in men is indicative of abdominal obesity and may suggest a higher level of visceral fat.

What is Wellaholic’s Experience with Fat Freezing?

At Wellaholic, we prioritize the safety and effectiveness of our Wellafreeze fat freeze treatments. Our cryolipolysis procedure involves the controlled freezing of stubborn fat cells with sub-zero temperatures, which is then eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic process.

How does fat freeze work?

During the fat freeze treatment, a special applicator is used to target the fat cells beneath the skin. The cells are gradually frozen, causing them to die off and be eliminated from the body. The surrounding tissues are not harmed during the process, resulting in safe and effective fat reduction.

Why is measurement important during treatment?

To ensure the best results, our therapists measure the treated layer with a pinch test and calipers to determine the appropriate temperature and duration of treatment. This also allows us to monitor the customer’s progress over time.

Why do we not allow adjustments during treatment?

To prioritize the safety of our customers, we do not allow adjustments to the temperature or duration of treatment. Over-treating the area can lead to freeze burns, which are painful and can cause permanent scarring.

At Wellaholic, we take every precaution to ensure the safety and satisfaction of our customers during their fat freeze treatments.

Why do we need measure the fat before Fat Freezing?

Understanding the Skinfold Caliper

The Skinfold caliper is a tool designed to measure the thickness of a fold of skin and its underlying layer of fat. By taking these measurements at key locations, we can gain an accurate representation of the total amount of fat on your body. This process also enables the estimation of the total body fat percentage.

Using the Skinfold Caliper Correctly

For right-handed individuals, you would grasp the skinfold using your left hand and hold it with your left fingers. Then, using the calipers in your right hand, place the jaws as per the illustrated guidelines. The jaws should be approximately 1/4″ (7.5mm) from the fingers of your left hand, which continue to hold the skinfold. Release the calipers’ trigger, so the full force of the jaws applies to the skinfold. Importantly, keep holding the skinfold with your left hand while taking the readings.

It’s crucial to maintain a firm hold on the skinfold so that the calipers measure only the thickness of the skinfold. Upon placing the calipers on the skinfold, you’ll notice a slight “creep”; after a few seconds, this “creep” will slow down, indicating the ideal time to take the measurement. Make sure to note the reading on the scale before releasing any pressure off the calipers.

Limitations on WellaFreeze Fat Freeze Treatments

For customers interested in multiple WellaFreeze Fat Freeze treatments in a single day, we enforce a limit of three hours. Why is this necessary? When several body parts are treated, a significant percentage of frozen dead fat cells can lead to a condition known as metabolic acidosis. This condition occurs when the body produces excessive amounts of acid, or the kidneys don’t eliminate enough acid, causing an overall increase in body acidity. It can result in symptoms like light-headedness, muscle twitching, and prolonged muscle spasms. By limiting treatment time, we ensure customer safety and prevent potential complications from metabolic acidosis.

Conclusion: Fat Freeze is More Ideal for Some Areas Than Others

In conclusion, while fat freeze is an effective non-invasive procedure to eliminate body fat in Singapore, it cannot target all areas of the body equally. The effectiveness of fat freezing varies depending on the type of fat and the specific body area being targeted. Generally, fat freezing is most effective in targeting certain body areas such as the abdomen, back, and thighs. However, it may not be as effective in areas such as the arms or chin. It is important to consult with a qualified professional to determine which areas of the body are best treated with fat freeze.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is the science behind the effectiveness of fat freezing in targeted areas?

Fat freezing, or cryolipolysis, works by exposing fat cells to very low temperatures, causing them to die and eventually be eliminated from the body. This method is particularly effective in targeting areas where stubborn fat accumulates.

Are there any limitations to the areas where fat freezing can be applied?

While fat freezing can be used on many areas of the body, its effectiveness may vary depending on the thickness of the fat layer and the nature of the fat cells in each area. Some areas with thinner fat layers may require more careful application.

What is the duration of a fat freezing session for different body parts?

The duration of a fat freezing session can vary depending on the size of the treatment area. Typically, a session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour per area.

Can fat freezing be combined with other treatments for better results?

Yes, fat freezing can be combined with other body contouring treatments such as WellaSculpt or WellaFreeze 360 by Wellaholic for enhanced results. It’s always best to consult with a Wellaholic consultant to customize your treatment plan.

Are there any potential side effects of fat freezing?

Some people may experience temporary side effects such as redness, swelling, or mild discomfort in the treated area. These are usually minor and subside within a few weeks.

Is fat freezing a one-time procedure, or will I need multiple sessions?

The number of fat freezing sessions required will depend on the individual’s specific goals and the areas being treated. Some people may require multiple sessions to achieve their desired results.
