Cryolipolysis technology has been developed by scientists at Harvard University and Massachusetts. Cryolipolysis is constantly gaining ground and has become the most popular way of liposculpture since it first appeared., widely used worldwide
Cryolipolysis is an extremely simple and painless method that removes local fat non-surgically (without scalpel), injections or anesthesia. It is a non-invasive, Clinically proven process that selectively reduces unwanted fat using cooling technology. The Z-lipo from the German company Zimmer is the cryolipolysis system that we use and recommend.
The goal is to selectively reduce persistent accumulated fat that does not respond to diet or exercise in areas such as the abdomen., around the waist («love handles»), arms, inside the thighs, inside the knees, under the jaw ("Double jaw"), buttocks , outer surface of the thighs ("Buns").
Cryolipolysis is not a weight loss method or program for overweight people. The most suitable candidates for treatment are men or women who are close to their ideal weight, but have local fat that can not be eliminated with a healthy lifestyle-diet-exercise, but also do not want surgery (liposuction).
What areas can I improve with Cryolipolysis;
Any part of your body that has extra fat is the right place for cryolipolysis. The most common areas treated with cryolipolysis are
- Thighs externally (buns) & internally
- Belly around the waist («love handles»),
- Interior from the knees
- under the jaw ("Double jaw")
-What matters is the machine we use in cryolipolysis?
In our clinic we use the Z-lipo of the German company Zimmer, company specializing in medical equipment that provides refrigeration. It is a medical machine that has all the European certifications, to provide a safe and reliable treatment
– How the treatment works cryolipolysis ?
Using a special cooling technology provided by the handpiece ("head") of the machine, the non-invasive method of cryolipolysis literally freezes problem areas in -6 degrees Celsius to crystallize water in fat cells located in the deeper layers of the skin (subcutaneous fat) and lead them to destruction-necrosis. Then, the body treats them as something unnecessary which is eliminated through the lymphatic system (with the normal biological process of apoptosis). To facilitate the elimination of damaged fat cells through the lymphatic system, we recommend that drink plenty of water and do aerobics (even after the session!). As fat cells are gradually removed by a natural process, the skin adapts more easily, without relaxing as in sudden weight loss or liposuction.
During treatment, two heads that are placed symmetrically in the areas of interest create vacuum and suction are placed in the selected area of the body and using vacuum technology lift the surface tissue of the skin and lower the temperature from -5 as -10 degrees so that the adipose tissue freezes with the cooling technology. As therapy begins this initially feels like a cold "sucking" session, in the first minutes, which subsides as the skin numbs. This process takes time 45 minutes to 1 time (per area).
With the system we have we can do in the same session treatment of a small and a large area of the body
When done in combination with mechanical lymphatic massage- endermology type drainage has even better results. It immediately deals with the "buns" and the excess fat that does not react to any diet or exercise. It takes a few months for the result to stabilize, as it takes the body some time to get rid of the damaged fat cells. Unlike other methods, does not cause skin injuries.
Some recovery time is required? What are the possible side effects of the treatment? cryolipolysis ?
No recovery time is required. After the session we return directly to our daily activities including exercise and even the same day of treatment. You do not waste any time, except for approx 1 time the session lasts.
Medical research has shown that fat cells are by nature more sensitive to cold than the tissue that surrounds them., and how they can be safely removed from the body without any side effects or complications.
The selective effect of cryolipolysis is due to the fact that fat cells crystallize at a higher temperature than cells containing only water.. So, This method targets fat in a targeted way and does not affect the skin at all, muscles and nerves.
The only possible side effects are a slight swelling and redness (redness) in the area of the skin where it came in contact with the "head" which usually recedes inside
in 24-36 hours and the creation of ecchymoses ("Bruise") in individuals who have a predisposition to easily make bruises which usually subside within 8-14 days.
-The treatment is painful cryolipolysis ;
Not at all! The treatment does not require any kind of anesthesia. During the session, candidates sit or lie down comfortably and read, doing work on their laptop, navigate the internet etc.
How many sessions cryolipolysis are required? The result is permanent?
After a counseling session where we see if the criteria for this treatment are met, we explain the procedure in detail and plan the treatment plan. The number of treatments depends on the number of areas you want to reduce local fat.
The treatment protocol we usually recommend, includes 3 to 4 sessions which we carry out at intervals 20 days. The results are obvious from the very second session, with permanent reduction of fat by approx 20% (depending on the initial problem) which in the case of the region corresponds to an average reduction 2,5-5 points.
The results we achieve are permanent because the fat cells that have been destroyed in the area where the treatment took place are not regenerated. Fat cells disappear and points are lost naturally. They do not return unless of course you continue to exercise and watch your diet while keeping your weight constant.. If you follow a balanced diet and drink enough water and have a gentle exercise program the results will be established and your new body will be steadily improved..
The results differ from person to person are perceived by measuring the circumference of the area where the treatment was done with a tape measure. (reduction of a few centimeters) , as well as the clothes we wear (smaller number on the clothes or more comfortable fit on the body), but not weight measurement on the scales. Cryolipolysis does not facilitate weight loss, but primarily aims to remove local fat and improve body contour. So the treatment is not aimed at overweight people
With what other treatments lipolysis can be combined with cryolipolysis;
THE cryolipolysis can be combined very well with
–Lipolysis mesotherapy during the same session or a few days later
-SHOCK WAVE treatment with acoustic waves to combat sagging skin and "cellulite"
–Laser liposuction– liposculpture. Cryolipolysis can be applied before laser liposuction to reduce the adipose tissue we want to remove or a month later if there is a small residue of accumulated fat cells that have not been removed by liposuction
- Treatment with the triple endermology system- radio frequency and ultrasound Kuma shape for further fat dissolution, faster and better removal of fat cells killed by cryolipolysis, as well as for tightening the area
- PDO Threads for body straightening
Its advantages Cryolipolysis
- Lose fat targeted to where you want it
- Proven effective treatment at an affordable cost
- Improves the appearance of the skin
- Measurable results in 4-6 weeks after treatment.
- The treatment is completely painless
- There is no recovery time, we return immediately to our activities
- It is a non-invasive method. There are no bruises, stitches, edema, wound, postoperative pain
- You do not need to be admitted to a hospital-clinic
- Natural way to reduce fat
- Safe process
- As fat cells are gradually removed by a natural process, the skin adapts more easily, without relaxing as in sudden weight loss or liposuction.
- During the process you can read, listen to music, to relax.
