The new method of Cryolipolysis melts away fat by freezing it!
Find out more on the new, non invasive and bloodless technique we apply at Cosmetic Derma Medicine clinic.
Up to this day, the most popular and effective way to get rid of difficult and stubborn localized fat has been liposuction.
Today we are able to offer an innovative alternative to those of you who seek a non invasive body sculpting method without surgical intervention. Cryolipolysis is the newest, most revolutionary, non surgical, non invasive and painless method that can solve the problem of localized fat.
The theory about the effect that cooling has on localized fat is not new. In 2014, a research carried out by the Queen’s Medical Center of the University of Nottingham showed that cold temperatures are able to stimulate brown adipose tissue (brown fat) thermogenesis (heat generation), resulting in calorie burn and weight loss.
A few years ago, scientists of the General Hospital of Massachusetts and the medical school of Harvard University carried out clinical studies using a particular cryolipolysis device to prove that cold temperatures can cause the death of adipocytes (fat cells). Thus, the image of a perfect body is not far.
The treatment involves the device’s head placed, under the doctor’s guidance, on the body area where fat is to be removed. Subsequently, reduction of the temperature below the skin is enabled. The technology of cryolipolysis is unique and involves neither radiofrequencies, nor ultrasounds.
The head of the device selectively targets the fat of the area we wish to treat for a controlled period of time.
The treatment requires no local anesthesia, invasive surgery or stitches and does not cause any injury to the area under treatment. This is because low temperatures only target and affect the adipose tissue and not the skin’s surface, the vessels and the surrounding tissues.
A temporary numbness or redness may occur after treatment, which will resolve within a few hours.
The procedure is performed at the doctor’s office and the patient may immediately return home and resume his/her daily activities.
In the period following the treatment, the body gradually eliminates the dead fat cells. To expedite their removal via the lymphatic system, many doctors advise their patients to drink lots of water and exercise (even right after the session). It is also advisable to have the area massaged directly after the treatment. When the fat cells are liberated into the lymphatic system and gradually eliminated by the body’s natural metabolic process, then the result is considered completed and the body looks sculpted. Bear in mind, however, that even though you will start seeing results after a couple of weeks, the fat dissolving process will continue for several months (2 to 3 months) after your cryolipolysis session.
The number of sessions you will need cannot be determined in advance, as a specialised doctor is authorized to propose an individualized protocol, depending on the extent of your problem.
Cryolipolysis may be very well combined with:
Injectable lipolysis (mesotherapy) performed during the same session or a few days after.
Cavitation. Ideally, Cavitation is applied in between cryolipolysis treatments for further fat cells disruption (lysis). Moreover, Cavitation enhances the lymphatic drainage thanks to its lymphatic massage system.
Laser liposuction. Cryolipolysis may be applied prior to laser liposuction so as the adipose tissue is reduced. Alternatively, Cryolipolysis can be applied one month after a laser liposuction has been performed in case a small residue of accumulated fat cells was not eliminated.
It is a painless and non-invasive process, which means that there is no risk of the complications such as those observed after a surgical procedure.
Sessions are performed at the office and no hospital admission is required.
No recovery time is required, meaning that candidates may resume their daily activities immediately after the session is completed.
There are no bruising, stitches, edema (swelling), injury, or pain.
During the procedure you may read, listen to music, sleep, or relax.
The results are permanent, but if you don’t follow a balanced diet, the fat cells might increase in size in other areas of the body that are considered fat depots.
Indicatively, a cryolipolysis session on a small area starts at €350/area.
