Lying on an otherwise comfortable bed in, icy-cold, tissue-covered plastic slabs to my thighs, I wouldn’t say I was full of confidence that this so-called fat freezing would be a amazing success.
For those who have no concept of what Fat freezing is to use the technical term, is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment that claims to target, freeze and ultimately kill off fat cells, without damaging the skin. Sounds crazy, but it’s scientifically proven
‘It evolved after Harvard University scientists discovered that children who ate ice-lollies often were more likely to develop facial dimples because cooling the mouth to such a degree eliminated pockets of fat in childrens cheeks says dermatologist Dr Haus.
How fat freezing works
Fat freezing freezes a certain type of fat. This type of Brown adipose tissue is a specific type of fat tissue in the body that ensures body temperature is regulated.
Therefore, when we are exposed to a cold environment that tissue is forced to burn in order to keep the human body warm.
Then the body metabolises this type of frozen fat which passes it out of the body though a process called apoptosis which delivers improvements after six weeks but takes a good three months to fully expel. This is great.
Even though i was stepping up my training the past year and going easy on the chocolate, I’m a pear shape through and through – and my bum and thighs boast a layer of fat I just can’t budge. For a lot of people this is not an issue, but it was messing with my body confidence
I’d never consider going under the knife to get rid of it (THE FEAR), but Fat freezing seems a happy medium, given the lack of surgery.
First a consultation to establish whether my fat is wobbly enough.
Once the troublesome slabs are attached you just have to sit whilst the temperature of the skin is reduced to between 0-6°. Painful though it might sound, it’s not actually that bad – just 10 minutes of mild discomfort before the skin goes numb.
It takes an hour and a half per leg but luckily you can spend the time relaxing and watching Netflix, oblivious to the procedure.
Fat freezing review
Ever the cynic, I wasn’t expecting amazing results, so losing 3cm off each thigh was an absolute win.
What the Fat freezing treatment couldn’t do with just one treatment was balance out my legs, I carry a little more fat on one side than the other – but no one else ever notices.
