How many areas can you treat with Fat Freezing?

Clients often ask us “how many areas can you treat with Fat Freezing?” This actually depends more on your body goals, than on the actual treatment.

Fat Freezing is a very popular body shaping treatment and has been around since 2010.

The procedure is able to treat stubborn areas of body fat which can help to slim and refine your figure. Fat Freezing is perfect for treating pockets of fat that you can’t reduce through diet and exercise.

During a Fat Freezing procedure, your fat cells are frozen using a cryo applicator which is attached to the fatty area. This process kills some of your fat cells. Then over the next 8 – 12 weeks, they are slowly eliminated from your body. The treatment is completely pain-free and there is no recovery time needed after your procedure.

Clinical studies have shown that individual treatments could reduce fat by between 20% – 40%. However, results vary amongst individuals. To achieve the best results we normally recommend treating the same body area three times. This might be more or less depending on your weight or size.

Popular areas for Fat Freezing are:

  • Upper and Lower Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Love Handles
  • Inner Thighs
  • Double Chin
  • Back
  • Chest (men only)

It is possible to treat more than one area during your Fat Freezing procedure. For instance, many people choose to treat their Upper and Lower Abdomen and their Love Handles.

It takes up to one hour to treat 1-2 areas, such as your Upper and Lower Abdomen. And this would normally be classed as two areas. So, if you wanted to treat your Upper and Lower Abdomen and your Love Handles, this is classed as 4 areas and this would take up to two hours treatment time.

We would warn against treating too many areas in one session, as you don’t want to overtax your body. Your body needs time to metabolise the dead cells, so treating too many areas could be detrimental to your results.

Also the more areas you treat on the same day, the longer your treatment session is. We find that clients tend to get bored or fed up if their treatment takes 4 or 5 hours. So we would normally recommend treating a maximum of 6 areas.
