Cryolipolysis is a unique non-invasive treatment using a combination of electro and cryo therapy. Using the 3D-CryoFreeze handpiece, this creates vacuum which draws the fat into the handpiece. This localised area within the handpiece is then frozen, causing 20% – 40% of the fat cells in that area to die.
Cryolipolysis targets specifically the fat cells. By lowering the temperature to -6 degrees it pinpoints the content of the fat cells, causing them to crystalize. No other structures are affected by this process. The remaining content of the fat cells is then disposed of naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
The treatment is best for targeting those stubborn areas that just won’t shift. Typical areas ideal for Cryolipolysis includes inner thighs, lower abdomen and “muffin tops”, however your aesthetic practitioner will provide you with the best possible results which may include combining Cryolipolysis with other technologies as part of a treatment program. Two areas can now be treated simultaneously with the 3D-CryoFreeze duo application.
Only one treatment is required per area.
On average you will see a 20% – 40% reduction of the fat in the localised area. As the body takes several months to flush the dead fat cells, results will be visible after 6 – 12 weeks.
Cryolipolysis is a one-off treatment, however, it can be devised as a part of a course of treatments depending on your goals, your aesthetic practitioner will discuss this with you. It is great as a one-off treatment for targeting stubborn areas but can also be combined with other technologies from the 3D-lipo systems to enhance results. For example, if you have a pocket of stubborn fat but also the loose skin on that area, it would be advised to combine Cryolipolysis with a course of Radio Frequency to both remove the fat and tighten/tone the skin.
Firstly, an anti-freeze pad is placed onto the area of treatment, to protect the skin. During treatment the fat is drawn into a suction cup before freezing. This will provide a slight puling sensation and the area will be cold. Within a few minutes the area should go numb. The handpiece will be on the area from 30 – 60 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated.
Using the same technology as 3D-CryoFreeze, this treatment targets specifically the fat cells. By lowering the temperature to -6 degrees it pinpoints the content of the fat cells, causing 20% – 40% of the fat cells in that area to die. No other structures are affected by this process. The remaining content of the fat cells is then disposed of naturally through the body’s lymphatic system.
