Fat Freezing At Home
What About DIY Fat Treatments?
With the vast popularity of Coolsculpting® and other cryogenic sculpting treatments, it is no surprise there are now at-home versions of these clinical machines. Companies like Isavera are now offering treatments that partially mimic the in-office cryolipolysis procedures.
This at-home treatment uses gel packs that are slipped into a belt. The belt is worn on the targeted area for around sixty minutes a day. The belt is worn three times a week for up to ten weeks to effectively freeze fat cells.
At-home treatments maybe a more affordable alternative but must be done more consistently as opposed to in office treatments that typically need fewer treatments. At home fat freezing products should only be used according to the exact directions of the manufacturer. Never place the gel packs directly on the skin or for longer than sixty minutes per treatment so skin damage does not occur.
Before using at-home options, it is important individuals are aware of the side effects and risks of fat freezing with at home DIY products. The following are some of the side-effects that are possible with fat freezing at home DIY treatments.
Improper use could lead to skin damage and should be avoided. Care should be taken when purchasing and using any DIY fat freezing product to ensure the treatments will be safe and effective. While convenient, conducting this procedure under the care of a qualified professional is recommended not only for safety concerns, but to receive the best results possible!
