In today’s consumer society, when we want something, we want it now. Not today, not tomorrow but right now! We all lead busy lives so anything promising a little extra convenience gets a tick in the box. The concept of freezing your fat off without having to drastically change your eating habits or exercise regime arouses great interest. But how does freezing your fat off on your lunch break compare with more traditional weight loss methods? What are the main differences between fat reduction treatments and fat reduction diets? What are the pros and cons? Let’s explore this in more detail. You may be surprised to learn the facts.
What freezing your fat off involves
Freezing your fat off with a Lipo Freeze treatment is a pretty straight forward procedure really. It normally all starts with booking a phone consultation to find out if you’re suitable for treatment. Unfortunately, some medical conditions can render you unsuitable for treatment. After running through the medical questionnaire over the phone, you then book a convenient appointment.
On the day of your fat freezing appointment, you will be expected to complete a consultation form. Then the treatment starts with an anti-freeze membrane being applied to the treatment area/s. The vacuum cooling device is then positioned over the target area and the Lipo Freeze machine turned on.
You instantly feel a cold tugging sensation as the excess fat is sucked into the vacuum cooling device. This sensation soon fades away as the area becomes numb to the cold. It is at this point that you can just lie back and relax, read a book/magazine, check your social media or watch TV. Some find it so relaxing that they simply nod off for the duration of the treatment.
At the end of the treatment, all the equipment is removed and the area is given a lymphatic massage. The great thing about Lipo Freeze is that it’s non-invasive. This means you can return to your normal everyday activities immediately after treatment and there is no downtime to worry about. Inch loss results then occur gradually in the weeks and months that follow treatment.
Fat reduction by dieting and exercising
Of course, the more traditional methods of fat reduction involve dieting and exercising. Again, this really isn’t rocket science. Following these simple rules of thumb will definitely help with fat reduction.
- Only eat healthy food
- Avoid fatty foods
- Prepare your food into sensible portion sizes per serving
- Only ever eat when you’re genuinely hungry
- Drink plenty of water as this supresses appetite
- Keep yourself physically active
- Never skip breakfast
The difference between freezing your fat off and weight loss
It’s understandable why this topic gets confusing. Are they not exactly the same thing I hear you ask? Well no, actually they’re completely different. It may surprise you to know that freezing your fat off with a Lipo Freeze probably won’t impact on your weight at all. Everyone has a a certain number of fat cells in their body. Lipo Freeze completely destroys the fat cells and dieting shrinks the fat cells.
What happens to fat cells after Lipo Freeze?
Lipo Freeze is a treatment that totally destroys fat cells. Destroying the fat cells leads to them being processed and removed from our body via our lymphatic system. This means that number of fat cells we have in our body is reduced. As the fat cells are targeted in a specific area of the body, it is possible to achieve noticeable fat reduction in that area of the body only. This is another reason why freezing your fat off is growing in popularity for both men and women alike.
What happens to fat cells after weight loss?
When you lose weight through conventional methods such as dieting and exercising, the fat cells are not eliminated completely. Instead, they simply shrink in size so we still have the same number of fat cells in our body. Also, when we diet and lose weight, the weight lost tends to be from all over the body as opposed to a particular area of the body.
So, whether you lose or gain weight, you will not increase or decrease the number of fat cells you have. You will simply change the size of the fat cells all over your body. When you freeze your fat away with Lipo Freeze, you are able to target stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise and actually kill of the fat cells in the isolated area. For example, if you noticed you had ‘love handles’ forming that you couldn’t get rid of with dieting or exercise, you could lipo freeze and kill the fat cells in that area to reduce the number of fat cells there.
It is important when considering freezing your fat away that you understand that Lipo Freeze is not a solution to obesity or a quick fix to a slimmer you. There is a place for dieting and exercise and we are great advocates of leading a healthy and active lifestyle. You can’t just expect to have treatment and that’s your long-term body image goals solved. If you want long-term change for the better, you have to be prepared to make lifestyle changes and be willing to follow the treatment aftercare guide.
