Cryolipolysis is a procedure that works by destroying subcutaneous fat that is sensitive to temperature below freezing. Fat Cells (adipocytes) disappear gradually through a process of inflammation, starting within a few days after the procedure and continuing in the months ahead. The procedure is called cryolipolysis.
Cryolipolysis can be used to treat problem fat areas, such as belly fat and “love handles.” Furthermore, cryolipolysis is highly effective in reducing saddlebags, thigh circumference, fat layers in the hip area, back fat, arms, legs, and chin.
Cryolipolysis Fat Targeting Zones:
- Fat under the buttocks (also known as a banana roll)
- Flanks (also known as love handles)
- Double chins
- Bra fat
- Back fat
Cryolipolysis has generally mild and temporary side effects, with no serious complications and with minimal, or no pain. Redness and warmth (erythema) in the treated area resolves after an average of 15 hours. There is a possibility of some bruising, and numbness in the treated area, which are expected to subside. Typically, numbness or sensory deficits will subside within a month.
