Cryo Lipo Fat Freezing
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure. It uses cooling technology that results in localised fat reduction. The technology behind Cryolipolysis, was designed and developed by dermatologists at Harvard Medical School. Their analysis revealed that fat cells are more responsive to the effects of cold in contrast to the surrounding tissue. Fat cells crystallise at different temperatures than other cells. It is specific in breaking down the fat cells whilst sparing all the other tissue like the skin, muscle mass, and nerve fibres.
A special vacuum suction cup with cooling plates is positioned on the selected body area. The area is then chilled – fat cells are especially sensitive to cold exposure. When cooled fat cells crystallise and as a result no longer function in their usual way, and breakdown (Apoptosis). The surrounding blood vessels, nerves, etc are much less sensitive to cool exposure and remain unaffected. This results in the elimination of the fat cells without damage to the surrounding tissues. It is permanent. The fat cells that will be crystallised through the Cryolipolysis procedure are absorbed by the bodies natural processes. Once destroyed the same fat cells cannot grow back.
Cryolipolysis helps to:
- Reduce waistline
- Reduce cellulite
- Tighten excess skin
- Reduce stretch marks.
- Reduce fat cells
- Slimmer frame
- Smooth, toned and tightened skin look and texture
- Promote metabolism and lymphatic drainage
- Deep fat blasting
- Collagen stimulation and generation
Cryo Lipo FAQs
Each session is 30 – 45 minutes per area, depending on the thickness of the area, and how quickly you respond to the cooling technology. Your treatment will be tailored to your individual requirements. Additional time may be required if you require more than one area.
One session is sufficient for most areas. If you choose that you would like a further reduction in the same area, preferable waiting time between sessions is approx. 28-56 days.
Clinical studies on Cryolipolysis have shown reduction of fat is between 20% to 40%. Results will vary on the individual, the thickness of the fat deposits in each area, and the lifestyle maintained after treatment. Those that follow the aftercare advice, will get the best results.
This depends on the individual, the fat thickness, and the area treated. Changes happen over a number of weeks, 12 weeks being the estimated time to see the maximum result, although some of our clients begin to see changes at around 2 weeks. In clinical trials 12 weeks post treatment, 9 out of 10 people saw an undeniable reduction in the treated area.
People are almost always worried that it will be uncomfortable but tell us afterwards that there was no pain and minimal discomfort, and that it wasn’t as cold as they thought it would be. Clients often fall asleep during treatment. Your comfort is always of the upmost importance to us.
The beauty of Cryolipolysis is there are generally few side effects. The treated area may feel slightly tender for a short period after but it is very rare to have extended redness after the treatment. You can resume normal daily activities although must avoid heavy exercise on the area for 24 hours.
