From ice-cold facials to chilly cryotherapy treatments, the technique of freezing seems to have taken the world of medical procedures by storm. The latest treatment that seems to have both doctors as well as patients/candidates interested is the breakthrough technique of fat freezing. The calorie-shedding burn associated with getting rid of unwanted fat could soon be a thing of the past with this FDA-approved procedure of freezing fat cells.

WHAT IS FAT FREEZING?

Fat freezing, or cryolipolysis, is a medical procedure that uses temperature cooling to destroy fat cells. It’s a non-surgical treatment that helps you lose extra fat without any incisions. The process uses controlled cooling to drop the temperature of the skin and suctions in the skin surrounding the area of the fat that you wish to get rid of. In simpler words, “it is a process wherein a specialised device is attached to the skin to freeze and destroy the thin layer of fat under the skin,” says Rekha Seth, founder of Cosmetic Dermatology Society (India), and owner of Dr Sheth’s. The procedure has recently garnered much attention, with several international celebrities opting for this non-invasive alternative to liposuction. Dr Chiranjiv Chhabra, director and consultant dermatologist, Skin Alive clinics, says, “One can choose the body part where they want to freeze the cells. You can target the abdomen, love handles and even the double chin. It contours the body and offers more of a permanent solution to a shapely figure.
