Hey, have you looked outside? It’s absolutely scorching outside. I’m guessing you know it too, which is why you’ve probably locked yourself inside a bunker and are waiting for the Sun to go down and start frying the other side of the planet, so you can get all your work done before it comes up again. Seriously, have you see what’s going on? There’s people frying eggs on manholes and cars are literally melting (no joke, look up “cars melting in Arizona”).
This is also a big problem, because to escape the heat you have to stay inside and get all out of shape, right? Well, what if I were to tell you there’s a procedure perfect for the summer, because not only does it get rid of pesky, unnecessary fat, but it also helps you cool off during a hot summer? You probably just jumped off your chair. Well yes, there is a crazy procedure, called “fat freeze”, which is exactly what you think it is (or at least what I think you think it is).
How It Started
Believe it or not, this procedure’s origin is just as crazy as its name; who would have thought, am I right? Many people believe, that the procedure was created when research was being done on how frostbite affects the body, which is pretty logical. But an even crazier myth exists about the origin of this procedure. Doctors, when doing check-ups on children, found that children that ate more popsicles had less fat in their cheeks, than those who didn’t. Now, this doesn’t mean that you should go out and stock your fridge with Firecrackers. The fat freeze procedure, also known as cryolipolysis, which sounds a million times cooler (what a pun?!) but is harder to remember. Anyway, the procedure is now widely used and is considered to be very effective at trimming the extra, unwanted fat.
But How Does It Work
So, here’s something you should really take into account. You know how when people from equatorial countries go up north to colder regions, like Scandinavia or Russia, and wear winter clothing in 68 degrees? Well, fat cells are also terrified of cold, more so than the skin or your muscles. The procedure aims to remove the fat cells from underneath the skin, in different regions of the body. Remember how I said the fat cells are terrified of cold? Well, they’re so terrified, that when the skin above gets cold enough, they actually commit suicide and die (come to think of it, that’s actually pretty dark).
The doctor will analyze your body to see where the unnecessary fat is located. After marking down the specific regions on your body, you will then proceed to the actual session itself. Keep in mind, fat freeze is actually a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not require the doctors to cut any skin, or perform any kind of operations within your body. Everything is done safely on the outer layer of your skin.
The doctor will then put special vacuums, called “ice packs”, on your body and leave them there for some time. “Yeah, look, I wanted to cool off, but don’t you think this a little extreme? How long do I have to sit there?” Well the procedure actually lasts half an hour, so you’re going to have to sit tight. But I know what you’re thinking: “You’re telling me I have to freeze my body for thirty minutes?”. While yes, you pretty much have to, keep in mind, fat cells freeze at a much lower temperature than you think, much lower than water as well. So, while your skin may get a little cold, it’s not going to get cold to the point where it hurts. It’s only going to cause a minor discomfort.
While setting up, as well as the tools used, may sound a bit complicated, during the procedure itself, all you have to do is just sit there. During the procedure you can watch a movie, or play on your phone, or call you parents and play a little joke on them, by saying that you’re cryogenically freezing your body, so that you can wake up in the distant future, like Walt Disney. After the procedure is finished, the areas where the ice packs were applied to are massaged, which further helps get better results.
What to Expect
Remember this popular excuse: “Muscle weighs more than fat”. Well it’s actually true. Which is why if you’re expecting fat freeze to help you lose weight, you are mistaken. What fat freeze does is implied in its very name; it sculpts your body. It serves as a way to remove that excess fat from your body, so if you want to lose weight, you must go for more traditional methods of weight loss.
The results of the procedure, however, can be seen after a week to a month, when that annoying fatty areas get smaller, since the fat cells have been killed off. So again, while you may not see much of a difference on the scale, you will see improvements on the contours of your body, but remember to give it time, the results will not be instant.
Additionally, there are very few side effects, mostly minor things, such as a little pinkness in the skin, where the vacuum was placed. But the procedure has been fully approved for its safety, so you have nothing to fear. But make sure to talk to your doctor before heading for the clinic, just in case, to make sure that you are fully eligible for the procedure.
