Finally Revealed: Difference Between Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving and Fat Freezing

You may have come across viral TikToks or Instagram reels showcasing stunning fat reduction results achieved through Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving. While this method may bring fantastic results for some individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone. The same principle applies to another effective non-surgical fat reduction treatment: Fat Freezing. At Pretty & Perfect Edinburgh, we are proud to offer both of these treatments, and let’s take a closer look at each of them to help you decide which one might be the better option for you.

Presentation of Both Treatments

Both Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving and Fat Freezing, also known as Cryolipolysis, operate on the same fundamental principle: breaking down fat cells and stimulating your body to naturally eliminate them through the lymphatic system, similar to how your body disposes of other waste.

The key differences lie in the application method and the area covered.

Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving Application:

During your treatment, guidelines will be drawn on the treated area to ensure an even application of the solution. The practitioner will then inject around 1ml of the Lemon Bottle dissolver per 1cc (one square centimeter). This means that the exact amount of filler will effectively begin working immediately on the fat cells it meets.

Fat Freezing Treatment Application:

An anti-freezing membrane will be applied to protect your skin from frostbite. The applicator head will use suction to isolate the targeted area from your body, initially warming it slightly, and then gradually cooling it down to the temperature between -5°C to -15°C for a duration of 30-60 minutes.

Area Coverage

The limitation of the amount of dissolver that can be injected during one session means that it will address only the area the solution can penetrate. For example, if you have a large pocket of fat on your stomach, it will work only on the top layer of fat tissue. Once the fat cells are flushed away, you’ll need to repeat as many sessions as required to eliminate the entire fat deposit layer by layer.

Fat Freezing treatment may be a better choice when addressing larger areas of concern. It operates over a longer time period on the entire area enclosed by the applicator head, resulting in the elimination of a larger number of fat cells in a single session. However, it’s important to note that if you have thin skin, Fat Freezing may leave behind small “hickey-like” skin discolorations due to its suction, which will naturally fade within a few days after treatment.

Other Differences

Other important differences to consider are related to your personal health concerns. Both treatments have different contraindications, and while one may exclude you, you may qualify for the other. Let’s delve into these in more detail.

Conclusion: Which Treatment Is Better for Me?

Assuming you don’t have any of the above contraindications and are not afraid of needles, the decision should be relatively straightforward. If you are generally a slim person looking to eliminate a small double chin, your go-to treatment should be Lemon Bottle Fat Dissolving. It is cost-effective, requires less time, and leaves no marks.

If you aim to target larger fat deposits on areas like the abdomen, arms, or thighs, Fat Freezing is the better option as it results in fewer sessions, cost savings, and quicker results.

It’s worth mentioning that you can achieve best results by combining both treatments while maintaining a healthy lifestyle, of course.
