Cryolipolysis is non-surgical treatment method that uses controlled cooling technology to reduce stubborn pockets of fat without incisions, needles, or anesthetics. It works by crystalizing fat cells that exist under the skin by administering a specific temperature to the surface of the skin. Don’t worry— this affects only the underlying fat cells and not the skin in contact with the handpiece! Once these fat cells are crystalized, they are gradually flushed from the body and can no longer expand with weight gain.
Cryolipolysis works best when you’re at or near your ideal body weight. It’s important to note that this treatment option does not address loose skin, and you may need to explore other options if you have too much laxity. For best results, you should be at a stable weight and have good healthy habits in place to maintain your new figure.
Each cryolipolysis treatment is relaxing and provides time for you to catch up on your book, show, or sleep. At the beginning of your treatment session, your technician will place a specialized gel pad over your treatment area. This protects your skin from the cooling sensation. Then, two paddles hold the skin and fat in place with gentle suction for more direct contact with the cooling energy. You’ll relax in this position while the treatment is underway, after which you can return home.
Most patients begin to see results in the weeks and months after each individual treatment session. This happens as the body flushes out damaged fat cells through the regular metabolic systems. We usually recommend a package of treatments for best results, with two or more treatment sessions per area. These are often spaced out around one month apart. In order to maintain your great results, make sure to get regular exercise and plan out a healthy diet.
