The human body is like a wonderful and complex machine that performs many functions to keep us healthy and alive. However, it also has the ability to stubbornly hold on to pockets of fat at areas some of us find less than desirable. We’re talking about the torso, arms, thighs, tummy and buttocks. Thankfully, there are a wide range of non-invasive body sculpting treatments in Singapore that can help with this. The newest non-invasive body sculpting technology in Singapore is the innovative Cryo Fat Freeze. It is the first ever thermal shock therapy treatment in Singapore and is exclusively available at illumia Therapeutics. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
What is Cryo Fat Freeze?
This non-invasive body sculpting treatment targets stubborn fat to reduce inches and contour the body using the latest thermal shock therapy. Thermal shock therapy means that the treatment alternately heats, cools and once again heats the targeted area to destroy localised fat without damaging the surrounding tissue or the surface of the skin.
The initial heating phase has two functions. It works to relax and widen the walls of the blood vessels and lymphatic vessels, which in turn results in increased blood and lymphatic flow in the area. This increase in oxygen and detoxification is especially important because all the destroyed fat is eventually eliminated from the body via its natural lymphatic system. Heating the area to approximately 42 degrees Celsius also causes apoptosis or death of the fat cells and the lipid content is eliminated. This helps to reduce the volume of fat.
The subcutaneous fat at the targeted area is then safely cooled to a temperature of -8 degrees Celsius, which causes the walls of the fat cells to crystallise and be destroyed. This fat is then eliminated naturally from the body. The area is once again heated for a final time before the end of the treatment. A built-in thermocouple temperature sensor as well as the fact that the entire treatment is conducted with the therapist manoeuvring the applicator at the treatment area makes the treatment safer and more comfortable.
Thanks to the immediate and extreme difference in alternating temperatures, fat cells are continually destroyed and detoxed from the body and the remaining fat cells then condense to reduce the fat layer for a slimmer body contour. A LED light helps to energise cells to regenerate and rebuild tissue, so the skin looks firm after fat loss.
What are the side effects of Cryo Fat Freeze?
As this is a non-invasive body sculpting treatment there is no down time and you can return to your activities immediately. Those who have sensitive skin may experience some numbness from exposure to the extreme cold temperature and notice some redness, however neither of these conditions lasts for more than a few hours. You’re recommended to drink at least three litres of water, gently massage the area and do simple exercises to improve blood flow and lymphatic flow. It’s also best to maintain a healthy, balanced diet.
Who is it for?
This treatment is suitable for all body types and is ideal for those who want to tackle fat in certain areas for a more sculpted physique.
How many sessions does one need?
The number of sessions varies from person to person as each body type is different and every individual has the treatment tailored to his or her needs and goals.
How soon can you see results?
You will be able to see significant results after the first treatment and you will continue to see further reduction of fatty tissue and reduction of fat volume with subsequent sessions.
