In improving and maintaining your appearance it is always best to take a holistic approach that includes looking after yourself as well as considering cosmetic treatments.
Like it or not, weight management is a major part of lifestyle and appearance, which inevitably leaves people searching for quick-fix solutions.
What is ‘fat freezing’?
Fat freezing is a very accurate term for a process more formally known as cryogenic lipolysis and is a method of removing stubborn areas of fat.
The process works by using a machine to effectively freeze fat cells by cooling them down to minus zero degrees. Once the fat cells have frozen they will eventually be killed off as part of the natural metabolic process.
Fat cells have been found to freeze faster than skin cells, allowing fat freezing to be carried out without causing any problems to the surrounding skin.
As part of the process relies on the body’s natural metabolic system the results are not seen immediately and can even take a few months to be evident.
Fat freezing is most suited to targeting stubborn areas of fat, such as on the hips/ stomach which can create an overhang.
Can fat-freezing replace exercise?
The short answer to this is no. As with all cosmetic treatments, if you look after your general health and wellbeing your skin, health and appearance will benefit.
Exercise is integral to wellbeing and the benefits that this brings to your health cannot be replicated by any other means.
Exercise has been proven to be effective in helping to cut the chances of developing a host of illnesses and conditions including cancer, Type 2 diabetes and stroke.
Exercise is also effective in improving your mood and helping to fend off depression. If you want to feel better about yourself, exercise is a good place to start.
A regular exercise routine will help to burn excess calories and fat, as well as tone the body. While fat freezing will reduce fatty areas it cannot actually help you to lose weight as fat weighs less then muscle so any weight loss following the procedure will be minimal.
However, as a fix for problematic fatty areas cosmetic treatments such as fat freezing can help, particularly when you feel no amount of exercise is ever going to work.
The benefits of a holistic approach
Feeling good about the way you look is important and using cosmetic treatments is an ideal way to enhance your appearance. Just as anti-wrinkle treatments can help to reduce the signs of age, fat freezing can give you a more defined shape.
Yet, as in keeping wrinkles at bay, lifestyle factors will affect the condition of your skin and body, and well hydrated skin will look better for longer and respond well to cosmetic treatment.
Likewise, maintaining a level of fitness and working towards a healthy weight through a balanced diet will help you to feel good about your body, while cosmetic treatment can be used to target problem areas.
