What Is The Difference Between Fat Freezing and Losing Weight?

Published: July 28, 2023

Fat Freezing has quickly become one of the most popular treatments for eliminating stubborn or unwanted fat from the body over the last decade. Inspite of its popularity, people still have many questions about the treatment. Probably the most frequent query is ‘what is the difference between fat freezing and losing weight?’ Fat Freezing is a one-of-a-kind fat loss process, freezing stubborn fat cells to -9 degrees to kill and eliminate them from the body. Though it may seem similar to weight loss due to visible changes after the procedure, it is different. Fat loss that occurs through Fat Freezing is targeted to specific areas of the body, whereas, weight loss can happen through the whole body. 

Weight Loss

The number of fat cells in your body remains the same throughout your adult life, however, they may shrink or expand. When you eat food, a certain number of calories get burned through your body’s daily energy needs and daily physical activities. The excess calories get stored in the body as fat cells.  Weight loss happens when your body burns more calories than you take in through food. The more physical activity you do and the healthier your diet is, the more calories you burn. The fat cells in your body continue to shrink, but they are still there and will expand if you eat more calories than you can burn.  However, there are areas in the body that can have very stubborn fat cells and no matter how much exercise you do, they just will not shrink. Here is where you can freeze fat, to reduce the stubborn pockets of fat in those particular areas.

Fat Freezing

Cryoliplysis is more commonly known as Fat Freezing and the two most popular Fat Freezing technologies available are Clatuu & CoolSculpting. The treatment uses cold cooling technology to freeze and kill fat cells in targeted areas of your body. Your body then gradually eliminates the dead fat cells through your lymphatic system.  The proof is in the results! Check out our Fat Freezing before and after images. Each Fat Freezing session offers up to a 30% reduction of stubborn fat, these fat cells are eliminated and will not grow back. Fat freezing is safe and only targets the body’s subcutaneous fat.  The treatment is non-invasive and non-surgical which is why it is often referred to as non-surgical liposuction. Compared to liposuction, Fat Freezing is much more cost-effective and affordable at $349 per applicator in Body Catalyst New Zealand. There is no recovery or downtime, and the risks that are associated with surgery are non-existent with Fat Freezing.  When you lose weight, your fat cells shrink, but they are still there and can still expand if you go back to your old habits. If you have seen any Fat Freezing reviews in New Zealand, you would know that Fat Freezing permanently eliminates those fat cells and they will never grow back again.  Find your nearest location to book your complimentary consultation & speak to one of our expert therapists to ensure that fat freezing in Auckland is right for you.
