Does fat freeze really work?
Well, that depends on what you mean by “work.” Will it help to sculpt your body and replace a healthy diet and regular exercise? Definitely not. Will it make you lose weight? Nope, it does not work like that either. What it will do, however, is reduce small amounts of fat in the most stubborn areas.
It does actually work, and there’s good science and results from research case studies behind it. If you reduce the temperature of fat to a certain degree, cells go into what’s called apoptosis (fat cell death), which means they kill themselves and your body digests its by-products. The magic of it is you’re cooling down the skin to a temperature where it hurts the fat, but it doesn’t hurt the skin, and that’s why it works so well as an effective fat reduction treatment.
CoolSculpting and other forms of cryolipolysis have a high success rate. They are effective for removing areas of fat from the body, and have fewer side effects than other procedures, such as liposuction. Though this procedure can remove areas of fat, it is not a miracle cure, and people should not expect to see a complete removal of fat. The procedure will not work for everybody, and some people may experience worse side effects than others.
Who is a good candidate for fat freezing?
Cryolipolysis or fat freezing appears to be a safe and effective treatment for fat loss for almost everyone without the downtime of liposuction or surgery. But it is important to note that cryolipolysis is intended for fat loss, not weight loss. The ideal candidate is already close to their ideal body weight, but has stubborn, pinchable areas of fat (also known as subcutaneous fat) that are difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. Cryolipolysis also doesn’t target visceral fat, so it won’t improve your overall health. But it may help you fit into your favourite pair of skinny jeans.
What’s the run down on body fats?
Let’s start with the basics. Not all fat is created equal. We have two distinct types of fat in our bodies: subcutaneous fat (the kind that may roll over the waistband of your pants) and visceral fat (the stuff that lines your organs and is associated with diabetes and heart disease). A recent study showed that the body’s ability to remove subcutaneous fat decreases with age, which means we are fighting an uphill battle with each birthday we celebrate.
Does fat freezing tighten loose skin?
Well, kind of, but not really. While there is a natural contraction that occurs when you remove fat with any treatment, there’s nothing specific about the CoolSculpting technology that causes skin tightening . There are treatments using radio frequency to heat the skin to tighten it, such as Wellaholic’s WellaSculpt. But CoolSculpting does not have that. Lifestyle and other factors may also play a role. A person who continues to eat an unhealthful diet and remains sedentary while undergoing CoolSculpting can expect less fat reduction.
How is the cryolipolysis procedure like?
Cryolipolysis isn’t surgery and doesn’t use needles. The device holds the part of your body your doctor wants to target between two paddles. The paddles cool quickly and your doctor leaves them in place for about 35 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes. During that time, the process destroys about 20%-25% of the fat cells in the area that’s targeted.
At Wellaholic, we offer the traditional fat freezing machines with probes that contain two paddles. We also have our revolutionary WellaFreeze 360, which is the top-range, best-performing cryolipolysis machine. WellaFreeze 360 increase absolute fat removal by up to 19% more (in addition to the usual 14% to 28% fat reduction from each session). Also painless and no downtime; the body will naturally dispose dead fat cells. What’s special about WellaFreeze 360 is that up to 4 probes or applicators can be used concurrently at one session (as short as 30 minutes due to its efficiency and effectiveness) hence saving both time and money for the patient.
How many treatments does it take to see results?
It often takes a few treatments to get to your optimum results. A single treatment will yield very minimal change, sometimes imperceptible to clients. One of the downsides of [CoolSculpting] is there’s a range for any one person. All hope is not lost, however, because both experts agree that the more treatments you have, the more results you will see. What will happen eventually is an up to 25 percent fat reduction in a treatment area. At best you get mild fat reduction a slightly improved waistline, less bulging of any particular area that’s concerning.

Now, which body parts are suitable for WellaFreeze 360? As you have the option to fat freeze up to four body parts at one go, Wellaholic recommends the following permutation or configurations based on their research on this non-invasive fat loss procedure:
- Upper tummy, lower tummy, left thigh, right thigh
- Left flank or love handle, right flank or love handle, left arm, right arm
- Left upper back, right upper back, left lower back, right lower back
- Left upper butt, right upper butt, left lower butt, right lower butt
- Left outer thigh, right outer thigh, left above the knee, right above the knee
By being able to target several body parts at one time, WellaFreeze 360, similar to Clatuu, proves its effectiveness by allowing the patient to spend less time to fat freeze more body parts. For women, most fat accumulate at the lower body, hence creating a “pear shape” appearance. Based on this, besides the upper and lower tummy, left and right flanks, other areas to focus on would be the buttocks, inner and outer thighs. Some customers would also like to focus on bra fat areas, arms as well as the chin. The unwanted fat cells will be efficiently eliminated via cold temperatures.
Now, if you are going to target several body parts at once, Wellaholic’s recommendation is to use WellaFreeze 360 together with WellaSculpt 360. WellaSculpt 360 uses advanced radiofrequency body sculpting to tighten loose and saggy skin, which will be more apparent after several rounds of fat freezing (since the fat cells die and disappear, but leaving behind the stretched skin). Hence, if you are looking at a great body contour, it would be advisable to use both WellaFreeze 360 and WellaSculpt 360 in tandem.
