Cryolipolysis is a new process for treating localized fatty deposits which is based on the sensitivity of adipocytes to cold.
Historically, liposuction has 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 involves crystallizing fat cells which die off and are then naturally eliminated by the body. Cryolipolysis is effective, it is the subject of numerous scientific articles.
For who ?
The operation is aimed at those who cannot get rid of their unwanted fat during diets or physical exercises The thin person with rebellious areas of localized fat (such as saddlebags, a “rebellious” stomach to dieting ) is a good candidate.
Provided you have a minimum of fat to treat Cryolipolysis is a good way to improve:
- double chin
- love handles
- back folds
- gluteal fold
Expectations must be realistic, we cannot eliminate all the fat (which sometimes plays a hormonal role) but improve the appearance by reducing the volume.
The Cryolipolysis session
The duration of the session depends on the number of areas treated during your visit. It takes about an hour per zone.
The results allow a loss of about 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 intense cold that dissipates quickly. The first results are visible from three weeks after the treatment. Approximately 20% of the adipocytes in the treated area will be eliminated within 4 months.
The initial consultation
The initial consultation is an opportunity to examine your body, discuss your motivations and explain the expected results to you.
It makes it possible to search for pathologies which may contraindicate the technique or the antecedents which may require rules of caution.
Although Cryolipolysis is safe, it is possible to experience a feeling of discomfort, tightness or deep tension during the operation. No recovery period is necessary.
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 controls and a mastered technique can limit this type of risk.
