Cryolipolysis is a new process for treating localized excess fat which is based on the sensitivity of adipocytes to cold.
Liposuction has always been the most widely used procedure to remove unwanted and persistent fat. In recent years, technology has evolved and non-surgical options have emerged. Today, this non-invasive technique has a name: Cryolipolysis.
The goal is to freeze and eliminate fat cells without resorting to surgery. The procedure consists of crystallizing the fat cells which die and are then naturally eliminated by the body. Cryolipolysis is effective, it is the subject of many scientific articles.
For who ?
The operation is for those who are unable to get rid of their unwanted fat during diets or physical exercises. ) is a good candidate.
Provided you have a minimum of fat to treat Cryolipolysis is a good way to improve:

Expectations must be realistic, you cannot eliminate all the fat (which sometimes plays a hormonal role) but improve the appearance by reducing its volume.
The duration of the session depends on the number of areas treated during your visit. It takes about an hour per area.
The results allow a loss of approximately 20% of the initial volume.
A session lasts about an hour during which a cryode (-5°C) is applied which lowers the temperature of the targeted area. As the cooling begins, you feel pressure and an intense cold that quickly dissipates. The first results are visible from three weeks after the treatment. Approximately 20% of adipocytes in the treated area will be eliminated within 4 months.

Side effects are rare. The most common after the session are feelings of stiffness, pain, bruising, stinging and swelling. Skin burns are possible, but a medical-grade machine with permanent skin temperature checks and a controlled technique can limit this type of risk.
