Fat-freezing is a body sculpting technique that does not require incisions or anesthesia. It is a low-risk procedure that can eliminate fat deposits in target areas. Here is an outline of the process and what to expect from a musclesculpt™ Chicago session.
How does body sculpting work?
Fat-freezing or cryolipolysis destroys fat tissue by exposing target areas to cold temperatures. It sculpts by removing fat on specific areas where diet and exercise would not work.
Using low temperatures works on fat tissue since they are more sensitive to cold than other tissues. When freezing temperatures destroy fat tissue, it spares your skin and muscle from degeneration.
Cold temperatures injure the fat tissue, which prompts the immune system to act on the treated area. A type of white blood cell called a macrophage flushes out the dead cells.
What to expect from a cryolipolysis procedure
Your cosmetic surgeon will evaluate the target area and mark an outline. Your specialist may place a pad over the spot to protect your skin. An applicator device is chosen depending on the size and shape of the area outline.
The device uses a suction action to pull the bulge into the applicator. The applicator drops temperatures, which freezes the fat cells.
Exposing fat tissue to freezing temperature numbs the area, and there is hardly any pain. You may feel tingling or cramping sensations when the procedure starts. But any discomfort should disappear two to three minutes after the session commences.
The process lasts approximately one hour, and you will be aware during the entire session. After an hour, your provider will remove the applicator and massage the target area.
