Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis, also known as “fat freezing” or by the product name CoolSculpting, is a new procedure that involves the non-invasive cooling of body fat to break down fat cells, resulting in a reduction of body fat without damage to other tissues. The effect takes several months to be seen.

It is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that uses cold temperature to reduce fat deposits in certain areas of the body. 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. The technique has been patented under the name CoolSculpting.


DURING THE PROCEDURE:

  1. A vacuum applicator is placed on the skin to bring it into contact with cooling panels.
  2. Patients feel a cold sensation for a few minutes, as it produces an anesthetic effect.
  3. The fat is cooled for up to an hour.


ADVANTAGES OF CRYOLIPOLYSIS

  1. No surgical incision is required.
  2. It is a low risk procedure. There is no risk of infection.
  3. The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis.
  4. Resume their normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
