Fat-freezing technology uses controlled cooling to destroy fat cells in targeted areas of the body. Fat cells are more vulnerable to cold than other types of cells.
A vacuum device is applied to the area below the chin. This vacuum draws the fat in the area into a small cup, where it is cooled to the low temperature needed for treatment. More than one treatment may be required to achieve the desired outcome.
The most common side effects of fat-freezing technology include: numbness, redness and swelling after treatment. In addition, some people experience sensitivity, itching and tenderness.
