Losing weight is not an easy task. You’ll have to change your diet, exercise daily, and even avoid your favourite snacks! And after all your efforts, you’ll start to notice that you’ve lost a lot of weight! But then, there’s that certain part of the body that still has a bit of fat, and it takes so long to get rid of. Love handles, a double chin, fat bulges, and tummy fat are some of the common issues with adults. Despite having a healthy lifestyle, a lot of us still struggle with fats in the arms, thighs, tummy, and other body parts. That’s why a lot of individuals in Singapore are opting for body contouring treatments, and one of the quickest and effective solutions is undergoing surgery. 

Now, surgery may be the most effective treatment yet, but body contouring through fat freezing treatment is beginning to get noticed as a reliable and flexible alternative to a surgical procedure in Singapore. Fat freezing is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment that aims to reduce fat cells in areas of the body. While the said treatment is gaining popularity around the world, Ozhean Zoey offers the latest equipment for the procedure. If you’re struggling with stubborn, unwanted fats around your body, fat freezing is your way to go!

What is Fat Freeze?

Fat freeze Singapore is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that destroys or melts fat cells through freezing. Cryolipolisis is another term for fat freeze treatment. The treatment works by cooling the fat layer. Since our fats are sensitive to cold, the cold temperatures will then attack and shatter the fat cells. The good thing about this treatment is that it doesn’t affect the surrounding tissues in the treated area. This happens as the fat freeze devices target the treated area directly.

 

Fat freeze Singapore is said to be a great alternative to liposuction minus the surgical procedure and the injections. So if you’re someone who is too afraid to go under the knife, you might want to consult your aesthetic doctor about the fat freeze or Cryolipolisis.

How does Fat Freeze or Cryolipolysis work?

Fat freeze Singapore works by inducing cell apoptosis (cell death), which kills fat tissues. The fats would be vacuumed onto the cooling plate and frozen by the suction. Since fat is sensitive to freezing, the cold temperature can cause the fat tissues to freeze and eventually get destroyed. As the fat tissues are getting frozen at a temperature of -5 degrees Celsius, other tissues such as your muscles, blood vessels, and nerves will be unharmed. The temperature is continually adjusted to avoid burning the surface area of the skin.

The dead fat tissues will gradually disintegrate and be metabolized out of the system as time goes by. Expected results from fat freeze treatment would be a decrease in subcutaneous fat. If that’s what you’re aiming for, feel free to visit our clinic or book an appointment, and we’ll help you throughout your fat reduction journey.

 

Fat-freezing treatments help to eliminate persistent fat in specific areas of the body. The procedure does not include surgery or the use of needles.

 

These are the steps for the procedure:

 

1) Before the treatment begins, the treatment areas are first covered by a layer of gel pad.  This gel pad is crucial as it protects the skin from being frozen.  It is important to maintain the skin above freezing temperatures to prevent any damage to the skin. 

 

2) Between two paddles (cooling cups), the fat freezing device will hold the area of the body and the fat freezing process begins. As the paddles start to get cool (which happens instantly), you might feel some discomfort which is short-lived.

3) Fat freezing treatment duration ranges from 30-60 minutes (depending on treatment areas and brands of fat freeze treatment). 

 

4) During that time, the procedure kills roughly 15-30% of the fat cells in the targeted areas (results may differ between different brands).

 

 

 

Post-treatment care

We advise our clients to ensure that they continue to follow a healthy lifestyle to maintain their immune system, which plays an important role in clearing out fat cells.   This will include plenty of hydration, a good exercise regime and a healthy caloric diet.

Fat Freezing Treatments in Singapore

There are several popular fat freeze treatments in Singapore, and such include CoolSculpting, Clatuu, CoolTech and Cristal Pro (from France). These treatments may have the same treatment process, but different in features and results. With fat freeze technology, you don’t have to think about spending on gym memberships and dieting regimens.

CoolSculpting

CoolSculpting is probably one of the oldest fat freeze brands on the market. They are also well supported by clinical studies. Clinical studies show up to 25% fat reduction in treated areas which may take months to see visible changes in the treated areas. The disadvantage is that because of the exorbitant treatment costs and machine costs, most clinics can only treat 1-2 areas altogether in one session. Most patients can also only afford to have 1-2 treatments done in one session.

Clatuu Alpha

Clatuu Alpha treatment was introduced in 2015 and is based on the same cryolipolysis fat freezing technology as Coolsculpting treatment from Korea. Clatuu Alpha treatment is a cutting-edge fat reduction device that competes with CoolSculpting and other fat freezing methods. Clatuu also has a high level of consumer loyalty. In comparison to other technology and older models of devices, the procedure uses dual 360-degree cooling applicators for quick, even, and successful treatment.

Both gadgets work by freezing the fat and destroying it. As a result, they both have a non-invasive fat loss option for surgical liposuction. Patient experience suggests that Coolsculpting yields a more superior result. However, treatment costs for CLATUU are lower.

CoolTech Cooling Technology

CoolTech treatment solution in Singapore is a fat-reduction therapy that offers long-lasting or even permanent results. CoolTech utilises a surround cooling technology that operates by the cryolipolysis process, which freezes fat cells using a regulated cooling mechanism, resulting in a fat cell reduction.

The advantage of Cooltech is that this machine allows up to 4 areas to be treated concurrently. However, patient experience suggests that results may not compare to cool sculpting or cristal pro.

Cristal Pro

Cristal Pro is a well-accepted and effective cryolipoysis technology from France and is a popular fat melting procedure all over Europe. It introduces a new unique concept to cryolipolysis (or fat freezing), which is their 360 degrees body shaping. This allows body and face shaping, via non-invasive, non-surgical fat freezing with Cristal Pro, in almost every area of the body. This fat melting technology allows up to four body areas in one session. There is no plastic surgery and no downtime, and what is more, is that it guarantees up to a 30% reduction in fat cells. Clinical studies show promising results, which includes an average of 2-4 cm loss in circumference each session.
