Carrying around unwanted fat isn’t only about what size clothes you wear – it also affects how you see yourself and how confident you feel in your own body, and that’s where fat freezing in our Birmingham clinic can help you out.
No matter how often you gym or how careful you are with your food, sometimes fat is just stubborn – but invasive surgery or liposuction isn’t for everyone and is the last resort. We have a different solution.
The technology that led to fat freezing in fact originated after research was done into frostbite, and it was noted that fat cells would freeze before the skin cells froze, leaving the latter unharmed.
The fat cells then later died, and were removed from the body by apoptosis – part of the body’s natural recycling done by the lymphatic system.
Scientists then set out to look at how this could be used to treat excess subcutaneous fat, leading to today’s modern fat freezing treatments.
During your cryolipolysis treatment, our trained specialists will place the applicator on a specific part of your body such as your stomach, although it can be used on your thighs, love handles, double chin, upper arms, waist and hips, back and lower bottom.
The suction cools the skin and freezes the fat cells, encouraging the body to get rid of them as part of its normal processes. You might feel a little chilly during the treatment, but this wears off quickly.
This is an effective and long-lasting treatment for fat loss (not weight loss, it’s worth mentioning), and you would only need one or two sessions 3 months apart.
At MySkin we recommend fat freezing for people wanting to smooth and contour their hard-to-tone areas, as the treatment is not designed to help drop the pounds.
If you’re looking to treat larger areas, take a look at our Ultrasonic Cavitation treatment, which is designed precisely for this. Please note that this treatment is not suitable for pregnant/breastfeeding women. For everyone else, however, it’s a great way to help you fit into those new jeans.
Our fat freezing treatments in Birmingham lasts around 45 minutes, and bar feeling a bit cold and numb in the area treated, our clients can go about their daily lives with an absolute minimum of disruption. Although rare, you may get slight bruising, but this is from the suction, rather than the fat freezing, and generally subsides in a few days.
If you’re looking for effective, long-lasting treatment to improve problem areas and boost your body confidence, then a course of fat freezing in Birmingham is a painless way to get solid results. Give us a call to find out more, or you can browse our shop!
