Cryolipolysis is very effective at ridding the body of fat cells with potentially long-lasting results.
This 2017 research, among others, validates the effectiveness of this fat freezing procedure.
Through only a single cryolipolysis session, a person can potentially lose 22% – 45% of excess fat cells.
As every person is different from the next, so do the results vary from person to person.
Cryolipolysis does not assist in weight loss.
The treatment is intended only to help freeze and remove fat cells in a non-invasive manner.
While a substantial quantity of fat cells is removed by the fat freezing treatment, the same is not true for overall weight.
The human body is home to a finite number of fat cells. Cryolipolysis freezes and discards fat cells permanently.
So, once you have undergone the fat freezing treatment, the fat cells removed are gone forever.
While the body will not regain or regrow the eradicated fat cells, depending on your lifestyle, the body’s remaining fat cells may grow bigger in size.
Thus, it is rather important to be mindful of the caloric intake after a cryolipolysis treatment.
There are a few temporary side effects associated with fat freezing, such as numbness in the areas of treatment, swelling, and redness.
If any of these does occur, they are usually very mild and short-term.
Cryolipolysis does not result in any lasting or pain-inducing side effects.
While the stomach area is the most popular choice for the treatment, cryolipolysis is also performed on:
- Upper and lower back
Since cryolipolysis is completely non-surgical, there is no need for recovery once a person has undergone the procedure.
You can immediately return to your daily activities as soon as you step out of our clinic following a fat freezing session.
The number of sessions required for the best results can be vastly different for every individual.
While some people can achieve the desired results from a single in-clinic session, others may require a little more before they can reach their desired goal.
It is also important to note that due to the nature of the treatment, it is very difficult to guarantee any particular outcome.
Still, on average, there is a 22% reduction of fat cells after each treatment session.
Fat freezing is not an appropriate procedure to treat obesity.
Cryolipolysis is only suitable for removing stubborn patches of fat located in certain regions of the body, like the tummy and thighs.
The purpose of the treatment is to give the body a more toned and slim appearance.
No, cryolipolysis cannot be used for the removal of cellulite.
If you require a non-surgical option for cellulite, our Cellulite Reduction Treatment is worth looking into.
This procedure merges controlled radio frequencies with a cosmetic vacuum applicator to neutralise cellulite and give the skin improved elasticity.
Tightening loose skin or enhancing skin elasticity is not a feature of cryolipolysis.
VIVO Clinic’s Radio Frequency Tummy Tightening is a fantastic non-surgical procedure that will help tighten the loose skin of your stomach.
The HIFU Facelift is a highly effective treatment for tightening facial skin.
The treatment begins with the clinical practitioner at the Belfast clinic evaluating the shape and size of the area of your body that is to be treated.
The clinician will then place a gel pad on the intended area of treatment.
This is done to protect the skin’s surface from the freezing temperature required for the procedure.
Then, the cryolipolysis applicator is placed on the marked area of the body. The applicator suctions in the fatty portion of the body that is to be treated.
The suctioning mechanism will result in a sensation of being tugged at. As the temperature is gradually reduced to between -7°C and -8°C, there is an unmistakable freezing feeling.
In addition to the pulling and freezing cold feeling, you should also expect to experience some mild aches and cramping.
Soon enough, the area being treated will become numb, so these sensations of discomfort subside fairly quickly into the treatment.
On average, a single session can take up to one hour to be done. You will be able to enjoy a movie or listen to music using iPads at the Belfast clinic.
In 2010, the FDA approved cryolipolysis for fat reduction treatment in the stomach region.
Fat reduction in other body regions using cryolipolysis was cleared by the FDA a few years later.
The fat freezing process was initially discovered when Harvard scientists Dr R R Anderson and Dr D Manstein observed frozen popsicles’ effect on children’s cheeks.
Where the frozen popsicles rested in the cheeks for longer periods, large dimples formed.
The scientists referred to this process as ‘cold-induced fat necrosis.’
Further research showed them that while the freezing temperature inflamed the fat cells, the outer skin would always remain unaffected.
The natural conclusion was that regulated sub-zero temperatures could be used to destroy fat cells without harming the skin and other surrounding tissues.
