Cryolipolysis

A treatment to freeze your stubborn fat

Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing

No matter how hard you work at the gym, or how many different fad diets you try, the chances are there will always be that small area of fat that will persist.

For many women and men, body contouring treatments are a good option to help with the stubborn fat that just won’t go away. One popular type of body contouring treatment that may help is cryolipolysis.

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is commonly known as ‘fat freezing’. It works by cooling the fat cells to a low temperature which causes them to break down without damaging your surrounding skin and other tissue.

The cooling is released through cup-shaped applicators which will create a cooling suction to the area. The area may feel cold and sometimes numb, and patients might feel mild discomfort. After the cooling, the practitioner will usually give the area a massage to help reduce swelling, bruising and accelerate the elimination process of fat cells.

A fat freezing treatment usually takes around an hour, depending on the area being treated and the type of device used. After the treatment, the body’s immune system naturally processes the fat and removes the dead cells, which will be excreted through the lymphatic system.

What are the benefits of cryolipolysis treatment?

Fat freezing treatments are a good alternative to more invasive procedures like liposuction or surgery as they don’t take as much time, are cheaper, and have fewer risks with minimal to no recovery time.

The most popular areas to treat with cryolipolysis are the abdomen, flanks and thighs, but it can treat almost any place on the body such as under the chin, the bra area for women, chest area for men, the upper arms, back, banana rolls on the legs and even around the knee.

According to the results of 85 patients who underwent cryolipolysis treatment, patients saw up to 27% fat reduction at their follow-up appointment.

Results will differ according to the individual and the area being treated, but will usually be seen from around three months.

As cryolipolysis destroys the fat cells, they will be permanently removed and will not return. However, destroying these cells will not prevent more from appearing or for current cells to grow larger, so a healthy lifestyle must be maintained.
