  • Flabby arms
  • Back fats or bra handles
  • Thighs
  • Double chin

Interested to know which fat freezing treatments in Singapore suit you? Read on to find out more about the different treatments, effectiveness and cost.



How does fat freezing work?

In the treatment room, a specialist or a medical professional places cooling paddles or applicators on the targeted areas, where the cold temperature is applied for approximately 60 minutes.

Fat cells are highly temperature-sensitive, and using cool energy drives them to a biological process known as “cell death”, or apoptosis.

By burning off the subcutaneous fats by up to 25%, clients will be able to see visible results after just one session.

How much does fat freezing cost?

One fat freezing treatment in Singapore may cost anywhere slightly above $2,000, whereas a single liposuction surgery can cost $3,500.

While fat freezing treatments may seem to be the cheaper alternative, bear in mind that for some body shapes and larger body parts, it may take more than one session to achieve your desired results.

As for liposuction, it will only require one surgery and the results are also long-lasting.

Why choose fat freezing treatments over surgery?

Clients are opting for fat freezing treatments not only because it delivers their desired results, it can also be done as an outpatient treatment with minimal side effects.

Some of these side effects that most clients experience include slight swelling, redness and numbing of the treated areas immediately after the treatment. 

Will fat freezing work for everyone?

On top of fat-reduction treatments, keeping a healthy diet and engaging in physical exercise can result in a higher fat reduction than continuing a sedentary lifestyle.

Fat freezing treatments only target your fat cells and eliminate them through crystallization; they do not tighten any form of loose or excess skin.

Proper fat freezing aftercare is key to getting the most out of it as well.

In other words, you can ensure that you’re getting the right treatment for you.

Not all fat freezing treatments will suit you, hence it is crucial that you do some careful consideration to avoid getting overpriced treatments or achieve the results you really want.

 

Always check to see if the treatment centre or clinic has a good track record of fat-freezing treatments.

Centres with awards and accolades are best, as this shows that they are recognized for the effectiveness of their treatments, have served a significant number of clients and received many positive testimonials as well.

 

Clinical photos showing the results of their treatments also adds to their credibility. Make sure the centre or clinic is able to back up their claims.
