In my never-ending quest for the best diet product, this week I took a look at Freeze Fat. We decided to do one of our in-depth reviews, looking closely at the side effects, ingredients, research and customer service. Plus, we read hundreds of testimonials from all across the web. Then, we summarized and condensed it all to give you the information you need.
What You Need to Know
Firstly, Freeze Fat is a gel patch used to kill fat cells. The simple, non-invasive procedure is done at a clinic offering the treatment. It is cooled down to the point where adipose tissue is killed, causing a slimming effect.
Freeze Fat is a technique from ZELTIQ®. The company was founded in 2005. We like the fact that the procedure is FDA approved, but read on…
Cost – “Yeeouch?”
The first issue with the fat freezing treatment is that it is much more costly than many of the supplements, meal replacement programs and even gym memberships available on the market today. “Sessions will cost an average of $1,500 each and can take up to two hours of time,” says our Research Editor. “Depending on the scope of how much you’re trying to change your body, it may take multiple sessions to get the results you are looking for.”
“I have not lost any weight or inches from my CoolSculpting procedure…sadly,” said one user.

Effects – “Wait a While”
The official website for the procedure says it can take up to three weeks to start seeing the results of the procedure, while other reviews have said it can take months. It can be disheartening to spend that kind of money on a treatment and see no real change.
One user said, “After my procedure I felt extremely uncomfortable, but tolerable by day 2-7 I’ve been in excruciating pain. I tried a heating pad and that was worst!”
“I am over 2 months since my procedure and unfortunately I don’t see a significant result,” said another.
Our research indicates that if there’s part of a diet program that’s difficult, like the cost of treatment, dieters won’t be able to maintain additional treatments that may be necessary to maintain the results.
The Science – “Validated?”
The research we were able to find on the procedure suggests that while it does kill cells, causing them to release fat, it is quickly reabsorbed into another part of the body. Instead of promoting weight-loss, this procedure seems to only promote the redistribution adipose.
The Bottom Line – Does Freeze Fat Work?
Are we running out to the nearest clinical to get frozen? We were looking forward to reviewing Freeze Fat because it appeared to be a solid company. We were disappointed to see a number of complaints about the procedure doing nothing to promote weight-loss, and in some cases causing pain and discomfort, so we’re not comfortable giving this one the green light.
If you’d like to shed some pounds, we recommend choosing a product that gives you safe and effective ingredients, value for your money and clinically proven results.
Among best products we’ve seen in 2015 is one called Leptigen. It is made with a proprietary blend of four ingredients clinically proven to help promote faster metabolism and burn more fat. As we’ve searched the internet, we couldn’t find talk of negative comments about side effects, but we did find that users are seeing good results.
The makers of Leptigen are so confident in their product they’re giving new customers a Special Trial Offer, which we love to see.
