Due to lack of exercise and aging, fat begin to accumulate in my lower body and I find it real hard to lose those belly fats! About a month ago, I was invited from Marie France Singapore to experience one of their tummy slimming treatments – Pro-Freeze (PFZ). I get to undergo this trial to share the experience from the recent consumer satisfaction survey, conducted by Nielsen. See below for more info.
Pro-Freeze is a new treatment that uses fat-freezing technology to safely and effectively remove the unwanted fat cells. What Pro-Freeze does is to ‘freeze’ away the fat bulges without the need of incisions, anaesthesia or surgery. With target cooling, the fat is safely chilled to ‘kill’ the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues.
When fat cells are exposed to an extreme cold temperature, they will be ‘frozen’. These ‘frozen’ fat cells will be degenerated and eventually ‘die’ (a process called adipocyt apoptosis). These degenerated fat cells will be eliminated from the body via the body’s own metabolism system. It is claimed that it can permanently remove up to 25% of the unwanted fat in a single treatment session, thereby reducing the thickness of the fat layer.
Pro-Freeze comes with two medium sized handpieces that help define the two sides of my tummy. I must say Pro-Freeze is pretty similar to Cool Sculpting. I have tested Cool Sculpting once when it was first launched many years ago. Cool Sculpting uses a larger applicator to treat the centre of my abdomen, whilst Pro-Freeze uses 2 smaller applicators that able to define the two sides of my abdomen. Both have their pros and cons, the results will vary depending on our distribution of fat at our abdomen.
