Fat Freezing

What is fat freezing?

Freezing fat sounds a mighty bizarre way to try to reduce fat – until you learn that if living fat cells are chilled below 4ºC, they die. It’s a scientific observation that was made years ago and dubbed ‘the popsicle effect’ (popsicle panniculitis is its technical name) when it was noted that children who spent a long time sucking on iced lollies (popsicles, if you’re in the States) could develop dents in the fat inside their cheeks.

The process of freezing fat to get rid of it is called cryolipolysis (cryo – freezing, and lipolysis – fat destruction). The great attraction of fat freezing treatments is that, once those fat cells have died, they are gone from the body. This is unlike many non-surgical fat-busting treatments, where the fat cells release their contents and shrink, but stay in place.
