Fat Freezing Results: My Story

After 1 treatment of 3D Cryolipolysis at Aesthetic Clinic in Clane with Sabrina

Fat freezing is favoured by numerous celebrities including Coleen Rooney after the birth of her second son. The treatment permanently destroys fat cells.

I had my 3D Lipo – Cryolipolysis – fat freezing treatment with Sabrina from Aphrodite Laser & Beauty Clinic, in her clinic in Clane, Co Kildare a few months ago.

How does fat freezing work?

3D Lipo – Cryolipolysis – fat freezing is a permanent fat reduction treatment which is non-invasive, non-surgical that targets the fat cells underneath without harming the skin.

Cryolipolysis freezes fat cells to – 6oC, where they crystallize and die. In the weeks to follow, these fat cells are naturally eliminated from the body. Sabrina says that ‘Fat freezing can remove up to 20-40% of fat in the treated area after just one treatment’.

I decided to have the treatment on my abdomen as it is the one area that I would be the most concerned about after having three children! The machine is switched on, a strong vacuum pulls your unwanted wobbly bits into the machine. It is painless, although you are aware of it, it is a good time to catch up on some work or read a few magazines as the process takes an hour.

This is not a weight loss treatment and it’s definitely not a miracle treatment for losing weight. The best people to have this procedure done should be active and relatively in shape, within 1-2 stone of their ideal weight with stubborn pockets of fat that is resistant to diet or exercise. It is not suitable for individuals with a lot of weight to lose.

Are the results permanent?

Once the fat cells are frozen, they die and are naturally eliminated by the body. Once the fat cells are gone, they are gone for good.

My Results

The treatment wasn’t painful, I found it very relaxing. The area was cold for an hour or two after the treatment. It does say that you can notice results in 12 weeks, but it took me a bit longer to notice any benefits from the treatment. Although they say that you don’t have to exercise alongside your treatment, I did as exercise was always part of my regular routine and I wanted to gain the most benefits from the treatment. If anything I did cut back on my exercise to moderate exercise a few times a week, and maintained a healthy diet. I generally try to refrain from eating carbohydrates for my breakfast and lunch. I did lose weight, and I feel this was a combination of diet and the treatment. This treatment is not a weight loss treatment, it is a fat reduction treatment to target certain areas that are resistant to exercise and healthy eating. I do feel it worked, you won’t come out with a six pack, it’s not a miracle treatment and you need to have realistic expectations.

On my review appointment, Sabrina said that I didn’t need a second treatment of fat freezing. I still had a lot of loose skin and stretch marks so Sabrina recommend a course of 6 Radio Frequency sessions to tighten up the skin and improve the appearance of the stretch marks. Full review on the how I get on with the skin tightening treatment to follow in a few weeks.
