Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) is a process during which your fat cells are effectively frozen, reducing unwanted flab and leaving you with an attractive, toned appearance.
Cryolipolysis uses a chilled hand piece to create apoptosis within the fat in targeted areas. Cryo will treat ‘pockets of fat’ situated around the body and is ideal for sculpting the body shape. Between 20-40% of the fat cells in the treated area die in a natural way and dissolve over a course of weeks.
When fat cells are exposed to a precise cooling below body temperature, they undergo crystallisation, separation and localised cell death (apoptosis). This is followed by a local inflammatory response. Apoptosis – Is sometimes referred to as programmed cell death the process of apoptosis follows a controlled, predictable routine.
During Cryolipolysis the cell shrinks and sends out distress signals, which are answered by macrophages. The macrophages clean away the shrunken or damaged cells, leaving no trace. This stimulates a natural fat removal process that continues for several months after the procedure.
Cryolipolysis will treat ‘pockets of fat’ situated around the body such as tummy, love handles, bingo wings, inner thighs etc. It is an ideal treatment for sculpting the body shape for both men and women.
