The concept of this procedure is to freeze fat cells in an area, causing them to die and so they are destroyed and then eliminated by our bodies via natural processes. In essence, it removes and reduces the size of fatty pockets, minus the surgery and anaesthetic with minimal discomfort.
Because the body takes nearly three months to eliminate the destroyed fat cells, the body has time to adjust and recover slowly, allowing the skin also gradually to shrink and tighten over the treated area. So there is no loose, hanging, or flabby skin left over the area as commonly seen with more invasive procedures such as liposuction. The destroyed fat cells are gradually metabolised and eliminated by the body over 6 to 12 weeks.
