Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing
Fat Freezing is different to other non-surgical lipo treatments that use lasers such as, I-Lipo, and Laser Lipo. Cryolipolysis, completely destroys the fat cell. Cryo Lipo cools the fat in the treatment area of your body, when cooled to a controlled temperature the fat cells crystallise and die. It is a non-surgical alternative to Liposuction, it is a futuristic body sculpting treatment that celebrities can no longer keep secret.
The advantages of cryolipolysis compared to other fat busting treatments are that it’s one session, results are permanent and it’s effectiveness is clinically proven. You will be able to return to your everyday activities straight after the treatment so there is no downtime involved whatsoever.
Treatment areas include:
Upper & lower abdomen, upper arms, inner and outter thighs, love handles, flanks, muffin top, banana rolls (underneath buttocks) and hips. The applicator cannot be used for the chin, ankles or wrists as usually these areas are too small to treat.
Clinical studies have shown Cryogenic liposuction treatment to be effective on between 20% – 40% of the fat cells in the treatment area in just one session. During the weeks following treatment these destroyed cells are processed through your lymphatic system. Results can be seen in as little as 2 weeks, although it may take up to 4 months for you to see the full effects of Cryo or Fat Freezing
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What Is It?
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 fibers.
How Does It Work?
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.
What Happens To The Fat Cells That Have Been Treated?
Fat cells perish and are dissolved into the body via the lymphatic & immune system. The nervous system flushes effected fat cells from the system using the bodies natural processes. The area treated becomes smaller in size over the following weeks as this process happens.
When Will I See 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.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis is especially indicated for local fat reduction: The ideal candidates are those who want to reduce localised fat deposits for instance on the abdomen, flanks, lower back, hips, thighs, upper arms etc. These tend to be areas particularly stubborn to diet and exercise. Although most people are treatable, it is not an overall weight loss solution. We suggest that the ideal candidate is within or near their ideal body weight, people in this group will see the best results. It can also be an excellent additional motivation for those embarking on a change in lifestyle.
Do I Need To Follow A Particular Kind Of Diet Or Exercise Program?
No supplements or diet plan are required and you do not have to change your exercise habits for the treatment to work. However, Cryolipolysis is not a substitute for taking care of your body. You may feel more motivated to take care of yourself after the treatment, after all it is an investment in your good looks. Combining cryolipolysis with a healthy diet and lifestyle will only further maximise your result. Should you require lifestyle advice we can refer you to specialists in your area. After care includes advice to increase your water intake, avoid caffine & other toxins to support your bodies natural processes.
What Is The Main Difference Compared To Other Procedures?
The Cryolipolysis treatment results in a notable and natural reduction of fat tissue, avoiding the traumatic experience of invasive methods (liposuction), and the risk of damage to surrounding tissue. It is different to other non-invasive laser lipo offerings that use lasers (like I-Lipo, Strawberry and Laser Lipo) Cryolipolysis, physically destroys the fat cell, and no course of treatment is required as in these other laser based treatments. No exercise is required for the treatment to get results and the results are permanent. The results are not as fast or as dramatic as invasive procedures like liposuction or tummy tuck. But Fat Freezing is an effective alternative for those wanting to avoid the higher cost, pain, risk, and recovery time associated with surgery.
