Introduction: Say Goodbye to Love Handles with Fat Freeze

In my years of experience in the aesthetics industry, I’ve been asked about fat freezing treatments more times than I can count. It’s a popular topic, especially among those seeking to target stubborn fat areas like love handles. As the Aesthetic Director at Wellaholic, I’ve had the opportunity to witness firsthand the transformative power of our WellaFreeze fat freeze treatments.

From consultations to post-treatment follow-ups, I’ve seen the joy on our clients’ faces as they bid farewell to those pesky love handles.

In the rest of this article, I will provide more details on how our advanced fat freezing technology can help you achieve the sculpted silhouette you’ve been dreaming of.

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

First Things First: What are Love Handles?

Love handles are those stubborn pockets of fat that accumulate around the waistline. They’re the first areas to gain weight and the last to lose it. I’ve seen many clients struggle with this issue.

As an aesthetic director, I understand the frustration. Love handles can make you feel self-conscious, especially when wearing fitted clothing. But don’t worry, there are solutions. Through proper diet, exercise, and aesthetic treatments, we can target those areas. I’ve helped countless clients achieve their desired contours. With commitment and the right approach, you too can say goodbye to love handles.

Straw Poll with Wellaholic Customers 2022: Findings

In the comprehensive straw poll we conducted in 2022 with our valued Wellaholic customers, I’ve gained a deeper understanding of their concerns and perceptions. Through engaging discussions and attentive listening to their feedback, it became apparent that love handles, despite being a completely natural and common physical trait, are a source of discomfort and self-consciousness for many of our clients.

This insight is crucial in guiding our approach at Wellaholic, as we strive to address these concerns with empathy and expertise, offering tailored solutions that not only enhance physical appearance but also boost confidence and well-being.

Why Do We Need to Worry about Love Handles?

Love handles are stubborn fat deposits around the waistline. They can be frustrating to deal with. As an aesthetic professional, I often get asked about love handles.

I understand the concern. Love handles make clothes feel tight and unflattering. But there’s more to it than looks. Excess abdominal fat increases health risks like heart disease and diabetes. So getting rid of love handles is about feeling confident and staying healthy.

My advice? Don’t ignore those love handles. Combine a balanced diet with targeted exercises like oblique twists and side planks. Be patient and consistent. If you plateau, consider non-invasive treatments like CoolSculpting that freeze and eliminate fat cells. Small changes make a big difference over time.

The table succinctly explains that the difficulty in getting rid of love handles is attributed to their stubborn fat distribution, influenced by genetics, hormones like cortisol and insulin, and lifestyle factors including diet, exercise, and sedentary habits.
Why is It So Hard to Get Rid of Love Handles

Why is It So Hard to Get Rid of Love Handles?

From what I’ve learned, both through academic studies and real-world experience, love handles are particularly challenging to address due to several factors. Firstly, this area of the body tends to have a higher concentration of fat cells that are resistant to diet and exercise.

Secondly, factors like genetics, hormonal imbalances, and lifestyle choices play a significant role in the accumulation and retention of fat in this region.

Love Handles: More Than Just Weight and Why Shedding Them Needs a Multi-Pronged Attack

I’ve also realized that love handles aren’t just a concern for those with overall weight issues. Even individuals with a generally healthy weight and lifestyle can struggle with them. This is because love handles can also be the body’s way of storing excess energy or responding to hormonal changes.

These insights highlight the complexity of body fat distribution and why targeted fat reduction in areas like love handles requires a multifaceted approach, combining lifestyle modifications with potential professional interventions.

Love handles, those stubborn pockets of fat, have led many to explore solutions like "fat freeze." This procedure aims to freeze the fat cells in those areas, offering a potential remedy for this common body concern. But before you jump in, it's crucial to consider the facts and approach fat freeze with caution.

How Does Fat Freeze Work?

What is fat freezing?

If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to get rid of stubborn fat, you might have heard of fat freezing. But how exactly does it work? According to a BBC article, fat freezing is a cosmetic procedure that uses freezing temperatures to destroy fat cells and rid them from the body.

How is fat freezing done?

During the treatment, a device is placed on the targeted area, such as the love handles, and the skin and fat beneath it are suctioned into the device. Then, the area is exposed to very cold temperatures, usually between -11 to 5 degrees Celsius, for about 35 to 60 minutes. This freezes and destroys the fat cells, which are then gradually eliminated by the body’s natural processes over the course of several weeks or months.

What are the benefits and risks of fat freezing?

Fat freezing is considered a safe and effective way to reduce unwanted fat in specific areas of the body. It can help to improve the appearance and contour of the body, and may also boost self-confidence and satisfaction. However, like any cosmetic procedure, it also has some potential risks and side effects, such as bruising, swelling, numbness, pain, or infection.

It is important to consult with a qualified professional before undergoing fat freezing to ensure that it is suitable for your goals and health condition.

Fat freezing works by exposing the area of skin where the fat cells are located to extreme cold temperatures, usually between 0 and -8 degrees Celsius

How Effective is Fat Freezing Actually?

How effective is fat freezing?

If you’re considering fat freezing, you’re probably wondering how effective it is. According to clinical studies, fat freezing can reduce subcutaneous fat by up to 25% after just one session. That’s a significant reduction, and it’s no wonder why the treatment is so appealing to clients who want to reduce their body fat and see results quickly.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that the effectiveness of the treatment can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated.

What is Wellafreeze 360?

Wellaholic’s Wellafreeze 360 is a fat freezing or cryolipolysis treatment suitable for both men and women looking for weight loss and fat reduction.

This treatment is particularly effective for individuals who have a reasonable amount of fat in areas such as the flanks or love handles, stomach or abdomen, belly or tummy, back, thighs, arms, and chin.

How does Wellafreeze 360 work?

During the Wellafreeze 360 treatment, a handheld device is used to freeze and destroy fat cells in the targeted areas. The cold temperature penetrates the skin to reach the fat cells, which are then crystallized and eventually eliminated by the body’s natural processes.

The procedure is non-invasive and does not require any downtime, allowing individuals to resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.

What are the benefits and limitations of Wellafreeze 360?

Both WellaFreeze 360 and WellaFreeze has a high success rate and is very effective for removing areas of fat from the body. However, it is not a miracle cure, and one should not expect a full removal of fat. It is also important to continue to maintain a healthy diet and exercise to augment the WellaFreeze Fat Freeze process.

The process is such that the target areas of the body (with stubborn fats such as the lower abdomen, the back, inner thighs and even under the chin) with its accumulated fats can be targeted with fat freeze. The applicator is applied to the chosen area. The applicator uses a vacuum to suck the excess fat into the applicator cup. The cooling technology then lowers the temperature to sub-zero temperatures, sometimes to as low as minus six degrees! This process crystallises fat cells and works its magic.

. Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is a rare side effect of Coolsculpting and occurs when the treated area develops an increase in fat instead of a decrease, which can be frustrating for those seeking a non-invasive way to reduce fat

Can Fat Freeze Get Rid of Cellulite?

What is the evidence for cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis, also known as CoolSculpting, is a cosmetic procedure that uses freezing temperatures to destroy fat cells and rid them from the body. But how effective is it? A 2015 review published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery analyzed 19 previous studies of cryolipolysis to find out.

How much fat reduction can cryolipolysis achieve?

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 lost 10.3 percent to 25.5 percent.

A separate 2015 review published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal that looked at 16 studies, reported that people had an average fat reduction of 19.55 percent.

What are the limitations of cryolipolysis research?

The study’s authors emphasize the need for longer-term data on the procedure. Most of the studies included in their analysis were small and did not compare the results of CoolSculpting against results people would get from other cosmetic procedures or lifestyle changes.

Therefore, more research is needed to determine the safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of cryolipolysis in different populations and settings.

Studies have shown that a single session of fat freezing can result in a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area

Can Fat Freezing Help Reduce Love Handles?

As an aesthetic director, I often get asked about fat freezing treatments like CoolSculpting for stubborn areas like love handles. The truth is, these non-invasive procedures can be effective for mild fat reduction.

Fat freezing works by applying controlled cooling to fat cells underneath the skin. This causes the fat cells to crystallize and die off gradually over time. Your body then naturally flushes out these dead fat cells through the lymphatic system.

I’ve seen good results with fat freezing on love handles. Clinical studies show an average 21.6% fat reduction in treated areas. However, it typically takes a few months to see full effects as your body eliminates the frozen fat cells. Multiple treatments may be needed for your desired outcome. The key is having realistic expectations for subtle contouring, not dramatic weight loss.

During the fat freezing treatment, individuals may experience a cold sensation, tingling, or pressure due to the suction. However, the procedure is generally considered to be painless and non-invasive

What to Expect in a Typical Fat Freezing Session?

What happens before and during the fat freezing treatment?

Before the treatment, the targeted area is marked and a protective gel pad is placed on the skin to protect it from the cold. The fat freezing device is then applied to the skin, using suction to draw the targeted area into the device, where it is exposed to the controlled cooling temperature for a specified period of time.

During the fat freezing treatment, individuals may experience a cold sensation, tingling, or pressure due to the suction. However, the procedure is generally considered to be painless and non-invasive, and there is no need for anesthesia or downtime afterward.

What happens after the fat freezing treatment?

After the treatment, individuals may experience mild discomfort, numbness, or redness in the treated area. These side effects typically subside within a few days, and there is no need for any special aftercare. Results of the treatment may take several weeks to several months to become noticeable as the body naturally eliminates the damaged fat cells over time.

With fat freeze, you can finally achieve the sculpted physique you've always desired, bid farewell to those pesky love handles, and boost your confidence.


In our personal experience with customers at Wellaholic, we have observed a few interesting points regarding fat freezing treatments like WellaFreeze 360:

Many clients are initially sceptical about the effectiveness of a non-invasive fat reduction treatment. However, after seeing the results achieved by our previous customers, they become more open to giving it a try. The before and after photos speak volumes about the potential of WellaFreeze 360 to contour stubborn areas like love handles.

We’ve noticed that clients who combine WellaFreeze 360 with a balanced diet and regular exercise tend to achieve better and longer-lasting results. While the treatment can kickstart the fat reduction process, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is crucial for sustaining the desired contours.

Interestingly, some clients report a boost in confidence and self-esteem after undergoing WellaFreeze 360 treatments. The ability to finally address those stubborn fat pockets can be incredibly empowering, positively impacting their overall well-being.

It’s essential to have realistic expectations and understand that WellaFreeze 360 is not a magic solution for significant weight loss. Instead, it’s a targeted approach to sculpting specific areas that are resistant to diet and exercise alone. Our experienced therapists take the time to educate clients on the treatment’s capabilities and limitations, ensuring they make informed decisions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

1. What Makes FDA-Approved Cryolipolysis Different from Other Fat Reduction Techniques?

Answer: FDA-approved cryolipolysis, like Wellafreeze 360, stands out due to its non-invasive nature and the use of controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells. Unlike traditional methods, it requires no surgery and minimal downtime, making it a preferred choice for those seeking a safer and more convenient fat reduction solution.

2. Is Fat Freezing Suitable for Everyone?

Answer: While fat freezing is effective for many, it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Ideal candidates are those close to their desired weight but struggling with stubborn fat areas. It’s not recommended for individuals with certain health conditions. Consulting with Wellaholic’s specialists is advised to determine suitability.

3. How Long Does It Take to See Results from Fat Freezing?

Answer: Results from fat freezing treatments like Wellafreeze 360 can vary.

Answer: Common side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging, or pain. These are generally mild and resolve quickly. There’s minimal downtime, allowing most individuals to return to normal activities immediately.
