CoolSculpting Q&A

Cryolipolysis is an innovative painless technique that allows you to get rid of fat deposits under the influence of cold.

The local cooling of fatty folds will allow you to absolutely physiologically, naturally, without the burden on the body to lose weight quickly and effectively.

Do not have to resort to surgery, experience unpleasant sensations and put yourself at risk of complications.

Advanced development at your service: cold + vacuum works wonders! Scientists, employees of the clinic at the medical faculty of Harvard University (USA), have developed a technology based on the principle of natural dying (apoptosis) of fat cells under the influence of cold. Fatty tissue is a kind of energy source for our body.

Lose That Stubborn Fat Without Going Under The Knife

Cooling, freezing, the body begins to release heat energy through the splitting of fat cells.

As a result of such a breakdown of subcutaneous fat we get the necessary aesthetic effect – excess centimeters go away. In one session it is possible to process several zones at once.

On average, processing one zone takes 1 hour. At the same time, a vacuum applicator is applied to the treated area, which sucks up the fat fold.

Inside the applicator there are special plates that generate cold and ensure deep cooling of the cutaneous fat fold. It should be noted that the muscles, vessels and nerves are insensitive to such cold temperatures, since the fatty tissue is sensitive to them.

Lipolysis Procedures Attempt To Dissolve Fat Cells By Nonsurgical Means

During the procedure, you feel cold for only a couple of minutes and then vice versa – the heat is due to the micro-massage of the tissues inside the nozzle at the site of the effect during the procedure.

After removing the applicator, the treatment site looks red and slightly swollen. No pain or discomfort. Redness disappears in the same or the next day. And, then, you will simply observe how the processed area will be evenly reduced in volume.

With the help of cryolipolysis, the following zones can be adjusted:

  • the inside surface of the hands;
  • back, overhang in the blade area (2 zones are usually treated);
  • buttocks;
  • sides;
  • stomach;
  • outer or inner thighs;
  • thigh area
  • knees.

How does cryolipolysis work?

So, cryolipolysis is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique for eliminating excess fatty deposits.

The cryolipolysis procedure is completely safe. To protect the skin from hypothermia, a special gasket is placed between the vacuum applicator and the body.

It also ensures an even distribution of the cold.

Thus, cooling is ensured throughout the thickness of the fat fold, and hence, effective cleavage of fats and their subsequent processing in the course of metabolism.

During the procedure, the body directs the defenses to heat the chilled area, and the fat cells begin to split violently. The surrounding tissue – nerves, vessels, muscles, while not suffering at all.

Important: during Coolsculpting, the removal of the products of the decomposition of fat cells does not give any load to the liver and the excretory system, since fat destruction occurs gradually, and not simultaneously, shockly, as with many other apparatus methods of destruction of local fatty deposits.

Unlike many other techniques, cryolipolysis does not require long-term rehabilitation. After leaving the doctor, you can safely go on their own business, without feeling any discomfort. When can I see the result?

In contrast to the traumatic methods of getting rid of fat deposits, a quick result in cryolipolysis should not be expected. After all, the splitting of fats in this case is absolutely physiological, natural, and therefore everything will not happen immediately.

For one procedure, the number of fat cells decreases by 20-30%. The process of decay of fats will occur at least 60-90 days.

Is not it better to wait for a while, not experiencing any unpleasant sensations, than to suffer after the operation of liposuction?

Depending on your individual characteristics and wishes, you will need one or three procedures with an interval of approximately 1-1.5 months. You can be sure that you will get the first results within a month.

The course of cryolipolysis consists of 3 procedures with an interval of 1 month.

When the full course is completed, deep fat burning mechanisms and a decrease in the volume of fat cells are carried out within 9 months after the end of the course.

How to preserve the effect of Coolsculpting?

Saving the result of the procedure depends on you. If after completing the course of procedures you will have to lead a healthy lifestyle; Healthy food; give yourself a moderate exercise, you stably save the effect of cryolipolysis.

So, the cryolipolysis procedure: safe, effective, comfortable, non-traumatic, painless; does not require any rehabilitation; does not give a sharp release into the blood of fat cleavage products, which allows using this technique without any burden on the liver. Reducing fat deposits without surgery has become a reality.
