Last weekend, I was invited down to Devonshire House in Brentwood to have my fat frozen. I know, it sounds very strange but when I was invited to review a treatment for the blog, curiosity got the better of me and I knew I had to have my fat frozen (aka Cyrolipolysis).
Before I go into the details of the treatment, I wanted to make it clear that this is not a quick weight loss technique or scam. It is not invasive, nor a type of surgery and it is an entirely safe procedure when carried out by a professional such as Jilla from Devonshire House.
What is Fat Freezing? – Cryolipolysis is also known as fat freezing treatment using advanced cooling technology on localised areas of the body which results in the death of the fat cells. Clinical trials have confirmed that fat cells become crystallised and destroyed when exposed to cold at certain freezing temperatures for a certain time. Cryolipolysis targets only the fat cells and does not impact the surrounding skin, tissues, nerves or muscles, as they are effected at a much lower temperature.
Jilla explained that this treatment works on fatty areas that you struggle to shift despite a healthy diet, exercising, etc. After a detailed consultation with Jilla, we decided that the area that we would target is my lower stomach.
Without going into the technical side of the treatment, a cup is basically placed over the area and sucks up your fat. Once it’s in the cup it freezes it and as mentioned above, basically kills these cells and crystalizes them.
Once frozen, the fat cells slowly begin to leave your body over the following 8 -12 after they break down and are removed from the body completely.
Once the fat cells are distorted they will not come back on the area treated, assuming you maintain a healthy lifestyle and do not exceed your normal calorie intake.
