What is cryolipolysis; In which areas it is applied; Who is the ideal candidate for cryolipolysis; It is a painless method; Leaves marks;

These are just some of the questions that are often asked by people who are interested in getting the best out of their body.

Cryolipolysis technology has been developed by scientists at Harvard University and the University of Massachusetts.

THE cryolipolysis is constantly gaining ground and has become the most popular way of liposculpture from the moment it first appeared, widely used worldwide.

It is a method extremely simple and painless where removes local fat non-surgically (without scalpel), injections or anesthesia. it is about a noninvasive, clinically tested procedure which selectively reduces unwanted fat using refrigeration technology. One of the most well-known and reliable cryolipolysis systems is the Z-lipo from the German company Zimmer.

The purpose of this application is to reduce selective the persistent accumulated fat not responding to diet or exercise in areas such as the abdomen, around the waist ("Lovehandles"), arms, inside of thighs, interior 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 cryolipolysis 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).

 

The advantages of cryolipolysis

  • Targeted fat loss on the spots!
  • Affordable cost
  • Proven effective treatment
  • Skin improvement
  • Measurable results in 4-6 weeks
  • Completely painless
  • No recovery time is required, immediate return to our activities
  • Non-invasive method. There are no bruises, stitches, edema, wound, postoperative pain
  • No admission to a hospital-clinic is required
  • Natural way to reduce fat
  • Safe and relaxing process
  • Easy skin rejuvenation without any relaxation

Cryolipolysis questions that require an answer:

 

-What areas can I improve with cryolipolysis;

Any part of the body has extra fat, is suitable for cryolipolysis. The most common areas treated with cryolipolysis are :

  • Thighs externally (buns) & internally
  • Belly around the waist ("Lovehandles"),
  • Stomach
  • Waist
  • Back
  • Interior from the knees
  • Arms
  • Under the jaw ("Double jaw")
  • Buttocks

 

-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;

Using one 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 adipocytes located in the deeper layers of the skin (subcutaneous fat) and to lead them to disaster-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, We recommend that you drink plenty of water and do aerobics (even after the session). As fat cells are gradually removed by 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 suck. They are placed on 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 the treatment session begins, this is initially felt in the first minutes as a cold "suction" which subsides very quickly 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 cryolipolysis is 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?;

Not required no recovery time-recovery. 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 1 about the 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 people who have a predisposition to easily get bruises - and these usually subside within 8-14 days.

 

-The treatment is painful;

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, browsing the internet etc.

 

-How many sessions are required; The result is permanent;

After a counseling session where we see if the criteria for this treatment are met, the procedure is explained in detail and the treatment plan is designed. The number of treatments depends on the number of areas you want to reduce local fat.

The treatment protocol usually recommended, includes 3 to 4 sessions that take place at intervals 20 days. The results are obvious from the very first 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 achieved are permanent because the fat cells that have been destroyed in the treated area are not regenerated. Fat cells disappear and points are lost, in a natural way. 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, drink enough water and have a gentle exercise program the results will be established and your new body will be steadily improving.

Results vary from person to person. However, they are perceived by measuring the circumference of the area where the treatment was performed with a tape measure (reduction of some centimeters) , as well as the clothes we wear (smaller number on the clothes or more comfortable fit on the body), but not by weighing 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.

 

What other lipolysis treatments can be combined with cryolipolysis;

Cryolipolysis can be very well combined with lipolysis mesotherapy during the same session or a few days after, with

SHOCKWAVE treatment (with acoustic waves) to combat sagging skin and cellulite.

Yet, Cryolipolysis can be applied before laser liposuction to reduce the adipose tissue we want to remove or one month after, if there is a small residue of accumulated fat cells that has not been removed by liposuction

also, Cryolipolysis can be very well combined with treatment of a triple endermology system- radiofrequency and Kumashape ultrasound for further fat dissolution, faster and better removal of fat cells killed by cryolipolysis, as well as for tightening the area, but also with PDO-threads for body straightening
