Cryolipolysis, also known as Coolsculpting, effectively freezes stubborn pockets of fat and removes them for good, without surgery.
The summer season and, for many, the uncomfortable bikini period, triggers the desire for an immediate slimmer version of ourselves. This is no novelty, but stubborn fat that doesn’t seem to go away, despite our best efforts to maintain healthy diet and exercise, is an “all year-round problem” we have been trying to deal with. The new and innovative treatment of Cryolipolysis is here to offer a better view of our bodies, fast and without surgery or downtime.
Commonly referred to as “the noninvasive alternative to liposuction”, Cryolipolysis is a fat-reduction medical treatment, ideal for treating stubborn areas of fat, resistant to healthy diet and exercise, such as muffin tops, saddlebags, chub rub, double chin and bat wings. As the name suggests, Cryolipolysis is a completely non-invasive procedure based on fat-freezing technology – thus, neither anesthesia nor scalpel is needed.
The development of Cryolipolysis is based on a Medical breakthrough which revealed fat cells directly responded to low temperatures without affecting the skin of surrounding tissue. At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, our experienced staff use a handheld cooling paddle that freezes the fat cells directly below it, accomplishing impressive body contouring results. The procedure involves delivery of precisely controlled cooling (-15oC – 0oC) to fat cells accumulated underneath the area being treated. Once cold, the targeted fat cells are crystallized and drain from the body through its natural elimination process, leaving a more sculpted figure. Apart from the frozen fat cells, the ones remaining will progressively shrink in size, reducing the layer of fat and revealing such effects that previously could only be reached by surgical means.
At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, we use the next generation Cryolipo platform, containing a strong combination of Cavitation sound waves, RF radio frequency cold temperatures that collaborate to increase metabolism and cell activity and offer a complete and prescriptive approach to fat reduction.
Cryolipolysis treatment contains the latest synergy of sound and radio energy, designed to deliver impressive fat reduction and skin tightening effects that previously could only be reached with surgical procedures, when applied on:
For optimum aesthetic results, you can team Cryolipolysis treatment with:
Cryolipolysis effects may need a couple of weeks to become visible. Still, the fat-dissolving process will continue for 2-3 months after the session and thus, the results get progressively better in the following months, as new collagen and elastin proteins are produced and cold-targeted dead cells are carried away. Depending on the condition being treated, the number of Cryolipolysis sessions needed will vary.
Consuming water or any other anti-inflammatory drinks and using Vacuum or hand massage can facilitate the fat cell elimination process. Additionally, following a healthy diet and lifestyle will certainly improve and help maintain high quality results.
Cryolipolysis was designed to selectively destroy fat cells by bringing the fat to a specific temperature. Dead cells are then drained from the body. When fat cells are no longer there, they cannot get any bigger and that is why the results are long-term.
During treatment, you may get a vacuum sensation and a cold feeling in the area being treated. After each session, it is not uncommon to have temporary numbness or redness in the treated area which will resolve within a few hours.
Being a completely non-invasive process, you can relax during sessions and makes returning to normal activities afterwards a typically easy process.
It is ideal for both men and women who cannot get rid of stubborn fat in certain areas of their bodies. But it is not designed for major fat removal or weight loss and it does not cure obesity.
In order to maintain optimum results, it is advisable to follow a healthy diet, as well as a regular exercise routine.
