COLD TREATMENT OF GREASE
Freeze your Fat.
Small variations in weight, pregnancies, hormonal changes, age or your genetic heritage quite simply can promote the development and storage of localized fat cells that you have trouble getting rid of (stubborn fat), despite even a diet and physical exercise.
Clinical studies on cryolipolysis have shown fat reduction to be between 20% and 50%. Results vary depending on the individual, the thickness of fat deposits in each area, and the lifestyle maintained after treatment.
The procedure is designed to reduce localized fat deposits or bulges that do not respond to diet and exercise. It is not intended for people who are obese or significantly overweight.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive technique for localized fat reduction. This non-surgical aesthetic approach, derived from cryotherapy, uses controlled cooling to reduce subcutaneous fat, without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Thus the cold induces an inflammatory reaction which causes the programmed death of adipocytes (apoptosis) and consequently gradually reduces the fatty layer.
A handheld device called an applicator is used to freeze the layer of fat cells (adipocytes) underneath the skin.
First, a gel pad is applied to the area to protect the skin. Next, the fatty bulge is suctioned or vacuumed into the applicator’s hallow opening.
You will feel a tugging or pulling sensation as suction is applied. These sensations, intense cold plus other possible sensations - tingling, stinging, aching, cramping – lessen after 5 to 10 minutes as the area becomes numb during the cooling down process.
The fat layer is gradually cooled to the target temperature of between -8°C and -10°C . It takes up to one hour to treat an area. A
After the area is treated, the applicator is removed. The area may be massaged for 2 to 3 minutes to assist with the breakdown of the fat cells.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The technique is based on the finding that fat cells are more susceptible to damage from cold temperatures than other cells, such as skin cells. The cold temperature injures the fat cells. The injury triggers an inflammatory response by the body, which results in the death of the fat cells. Macrophages, a type of white blood cells and part of the body’s immune system, is “called to the injury location,” to rid the dead fat cells and debris from the body

We use the equipment CRYOTECH certified MDD 93/42 EEC and ISO 13.485
THE VIDEO OF THE TREATMENT
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?
While every person is different, most benefit from one to three sessions for each area of concern. We recommend to wait at least 60 days after the first treatment before retreating any area.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM THIS TREATMENT?
Results are not evident immediately. Since fat cells are removed gradually from the body, it can take 3 to 6 months to achieve optimal results.
Studies have shown an average fat reduction of between 15 and 28 percent at around 4 months after initial treatment. However, you may begin to notice changes as early as 3 weeks after treatment.
WHAT ABOUT DOWNTIME?
There is no down time at all which makes CRYOLIPOLISIS a great alternative to liposuction.
You might have temporary side effects for the areas that are treated such as pain or aches, stinging or tingling of the skin, redness.
IS CRYOLIPOLISIS SAFE?
The Food and Drug Administration has approved cryolipolysis to treat fat deposits beneath the chin, upper arms, inner and outer thighs, abdomen, hip/flank (“love handles”), upper back (“brassiere rolls”), lower back, and underneath the buttocks.
There are some contraindications:
cancer (less than 6 months)
severe kidney failure (dialysis)
untreated endocrine problems
major blood circulation disorders (with anticoagulant treatment)
severe and rare diseases in which the cold is the triggering factor: cryoglobulinemia, cold urticaria, Raynaud's syndrome, etc.
open wound, inflammation, injury, hernia…
