How Does Fat Freezing Work?
If you’ve been trying to get the look you want through exercise and hard work but still find certain areas of your body not quite living up to expectations, fat freezing may be the solution you’re looking for. Read on to find out more.

Many of us are physically active to a certain degree, but maintaining a regular exercise routine can hold a lot of benefits for your health. It’s an effective way to fend off conditions like cardiovascular disease, stroke, and diabetes, can do wonders for your mood, gives you energy, helps you sleep, and is great for controlling your weight. 

When it comes to weight, many people rely on exercise to get the look they want, but the closer you get to your goals, the harder it often gets to reach them. If you’re at this point and don’t feel like you have any options, cryolipolysis, also known as fat freezing, is something to consider to finally shed those stubborn pounds. 

If you live in the Denver, Colorado, Chicago, Illinois, San Diego, California, or Tampa, Florida, area, and you’re still trying to get that last bit of weight off, the team at Ice Cave Body Sculpting can help you reach your goals.

Let’s look at what fat freezing is and how it helps you lose weight.

Defining fat freezing

Cryolipolysis refers to a method of using cold temperatures to destroy fat cells in targeted areas of your body. Data shows that fat cells are more susceptible to cold temperatures, either resulting in burning those cells for heat or damaging the cells to destroy them. Macrophages, white blood cells that are a part of your immune system, detect the damaged fat cells and remove them from your body.

Using this method, we target fat cells in areas such as your abdomen, thighs, flanks, arms, chin, bra or back fat, or underneath your buttocks, destroying them without any incisions, injections, or other invasive tools.

How fat freezing helps you lose weight

At Ice Cave Body Sculpting, we use Thermal-Cryo-Thermal-Lipo™ (TCTL). This innovative fat freezing procedure applies heat and cold to your fat cells simultaneously. TCTL “melts” your fat cells so your body can get rid of them naturally through your lymphatic system. 

Unlike other forms of cryolipolysis, TCTL combines the cold to break down fat cells with thermal heat and electricity to help reshape your body and promotes collagen production to help firm your skin.

Subcutaneous fat (fat just underneath the skin) can persist even when you exercise intensely on a regular basis. TCTL eliminates this stubborn fat to finally give you the look you want.

Fat freezing is safe, doesn’t require any surgery, and once you’re finished you can get on with your day.
