What Is Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) is a non-invasive body contouring treatment which uses controlled cooling to selectively target and destroy fat cells, providing a safer alternative to liposuction surgery.The term cryolipolysis is derived from the Greek roots cryo, meaning cold, lipo, meaning fat and lysis, meaning dissolution or loosening.
The method involves the controlled cooling of subcutaneous fat cells, without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. The degree of exposure to cooling causes controlled cell death (apoptosis). The dead fat cells are then naturally processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.
How Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing Works
Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing uses advanced cooling technology to selectively target and destroy fat cells, without harming the surrounding tissues and nerves.
During a Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing treatment, a gel pad and applicator is applied to the treatment area. Controlled cooling is safely delivered to the targeted fat.
Once the treated fat cells are crystalized, they are naturally processed and eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system.
The Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing procedure can be used to safely reduce unwanted fat from all major areas, including the abdomen, flanks, love handles, bra-bulges, back fat, inner and outer thighs and buttocks.
