Fat freezing is a non-surgical procedure that involves the freezing of fat cells resulting in a smoother contour to the treated body area. During treatment, a special medically-certified suction device is applied to the desired area to cool the fat. Over time, the fat cells die and are broken down and excreted, whereas skin and other body cells remain unaffected by the freezing. Deva MedSpa highly trained clinicians can assist you in achieving a slimmer, more sculpted appearance by targeting stubborn fat in problem areas such as your stomach, belly, love handles, arms, inner and outer thighs, knees and chin.
Both “lipofreeze” and liposuction reduce fat permanently from treated body areas. However, the non-invasive procedure of cryolipolysis results in mild permanently fat sculpting whereas the surgical procedure liposuction involves actual removal of the fat. Advantages of cryolipolysis over liposuction include: lower risk of complications, no general anaesthetic, no down time, limited side effects (mild and transient bruising, swelling and redness), simple aftercare routine. Another plus point is the lower average cost per treatment of cryolipolysis compared to liposuction.
Fat freezing can sculpt the following body areas: arms, belly, calves, chin, knees, love handles, saddle bags and thighs.
The procedure lasts for an hour and is most often used for permanent reduction of stubborn fat pockets and for general body sculpting. Unlike laser liposuction which has little to no effect on destroying fat cells, or surgical liposuction which is an extreme treatment and an inherently invasive procedure with surgical risk, potential for adhesions, prolonged down time, possible scarring and post procedure pain, cryolipolyisis has little to no downtime and is an ideal walk in walk out treatment.
