Fat Freezing

Fat freezing is a revolutionary treatment that has helped many people remove stubborn areas of fat and achieve their dream body. Unlike exercise and healthy eating which shrinks fat cells, fat freezing actually destroys the cell itself, so your own body can remove it naturally. Fat freezing is a very easy process, and it allows you to sculpt you body the way that you want, by freezing off fat in specific problem areas.

  • Treatment times range from 30 mins to 2 hours
  • Quick recovery time between treatments
  • Non-invasive + no need for surgery
  • Results visible in 2-6 months

What is Fat Freezing?

The technical name for fat freezing is cryolipolysis, but it is sometimes also known as coolsculpting. All of the above are based on cooling down fat cells to a temperature that initiates the apoptosis process. Apoptosis is simply the end of the cell’s life cycle causing the cells to die, and fat freezing essentially speeds up that process. If you have any fatty areas, then you can target those cells for the treatment. It particularly works well on soft squeezable areas, such as the stomach, thighs, love handles or back.

How does Fat Freezing work?

Fat freezes at a higher temperature than water, so the treatment works like frostbite (but obviously to a much less extent) where only fat cells are frozen, leaving the overlying skin intact.

Fat freezing is a natural solution that doesn’t involve invasive surgery to remove fat cells. Instead, fat cells that are killed by the fat freezing treatment are disposed of naturally by your lymphatic system. Though the removal is permanent, there are no damages to the surrounding tissues from the treatment, making it an effective and safe way to remove fat that can even be done during your lunch break!

Though the treatment instantly breaks down fat cells, it takes a while for your body to fully remove them from your system. It can take up to 12 weeks to see the full results kick in, but again this varies from person to person and is highly dependent on lifestyle following treatment.

5 Things You Didn't Know About Fat Freezing

Wait...how cold?

Cryolipolysis targets fat cells primarily by freezing them. It lowers the temperature to minus 6, pinpoints the content of fat cells and causes crystallisation. It targets the adipose tissue which regulates body temperature - and burns to keep us warm. The extreme cold destroys these cells, which are then disposed of naturally in weeks following after treatment.

Non-invasive method

Cryolipolysis is clinically proven to non-surgically destroy fat cells. Unlike other methods such as liposuction which requires surgery, fat freezing doesn’t require any needles, incisions, or pain. The machine is placed on your target area, and your body disposes of the fat cell naturally in the weeks after the treatment. The non-invasive procedure means that the procedure is so quick and easy - you could fit it into your lunch break!

Celebrities love it

More than 6 million people worldwide have trusted a fat freezing procedure to get rid of their troublesome pockets of fat! Many people have tried it, including Gemma Collins, Mariah Carey, Lindsay Lohan and Jennifer Aniston. Even Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian have got in on the action! TOWIE’s Gemma Collins has also praised the treatment calling it “amazing” and saying she’s “all about non-invasive surgery.”

Harvard and ice lollies?

Dieter Manstein, MD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, scientists at Harvard University, discovered a link between children who regularly ate ice-lollies and developing cheek dimples. They discovered that the effects of cooling on the mouth eliminated pockets of fat in their cheeks! Thus the effects of cold temperatures on fat cells were realised and fat freezing treatment evolved!

Lasting results

Due to the non-invasive nature of fat freezing, instead of fat being removed immediately, it gradually breaks down and is transported out of the body naturally. This means that the results also appear gradually. The best results are visible at around the 8-12 week mark, though some see changes up to 6 months after the treatment! Many people choose to treat areas twice to ensure the maximum effect.

At a glance

Fat Freezing made simple.


At a consultation with a qualified therapist, you will discuss your body image goals and whether fat freezing is the best method to achieve them. Together, you will decide a plan tailor-made for your body, and take measurements to track your progress.


During the treatment, an anti-freeze protective membrane is laid on the area to protect the skin from the cold. Due to the personalised nature of the treatment, treatment times per session can range from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Though it can take as long as 6 months to see the true results of fat freezing, some people have repeat sessions much sooner to improve results.


Fat freezing does not require any aftercare - you could even complete shorter treatments during your lunch break! Once the treatment is done, you may resume your normal activities the same day! The area may feel a little cold afterwards, and some bruising may appear but this is completely normal.


The cost of fat freezing massively depends on the size of the area that you want to be treated. Single sessions can start from as little as £100. Many clinics offer deals and reduced rates if you purchase multiple sessions or target multiple areas.


Fat freezing is a great way to transform your body without the need for invasive surgery. It is quick and painless, with a convenient procedure you could fit into your lunch break. The treatment is safe and effective, and when combined with healthy eating and exercise, the results just keep improving!


Although one may start to notice the effects within 2-7 weeks, it usually takes 12-16 weeks for the full treatment to kick in. Patience is key! In order to get the most out of your treatment, therapists advise gentle exercise and healthy eating after your treatment. Though fat freezing is highly efficient at getting rid of fat, it does not prevent further cells from forming due to an unhealthy lifestyle.
