Cryo Lipo known as Fat Freeze is a non-invasive treatment used to reduce unwanted fat by using near sub-zero temperatures to kill the fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues and nerves.
The Cryo handle is applied to the treatment area targeted for fat loss. The handle uses advanced cooling technology to selectively target fat cells and freeze them. This procedure is known as apoptosis (controlled cell death) and is gradually eliminated from the body through the body’s natural waste disposal system.
When fat cells are subjected to being cooled below body temperature, freezing causes the fat cells to die followed by a local inflammatory response. When fat cells are exposed to extremely cold conditions, the body’s usual response is to restrict circulation to keep the core of the body at the correct temperature. Cryo Lipo makes use of a powerful vacuum which adds to the inflammatory response by drawing blood up to the surface layers of the skin killing the cells.
During the procedure, clients remain comfortable and can resume back to work immediately after. Cryo Lipo is completely safe and non-invasive. Its technology has been medically proven and there is no downtime following the treatment.
One session is sufficient for most people, for most areas. Cryo has the advantage of not usually requiring a course of treatment. Depending on the thickness of the fat and your client’s personal goals, fat freezing may be repeated in the same area a second time but is not always a necessity. If you choose that you would like a further reduction in the same area, the preferable waiting time between sessions is approx 2 months. This is to give enough time to measure the effectiveness of the initial treatment. Clinical trial data has shown for most people, the 2nd treatment within about 2 months of the first does lead to a greater reduction.
The fat will gradually leave the body through the lymphatic system and this can take up to 30 days to for the body to remove. The results are not instantly seen, as the body has to work to remove the frozen fat cells. A typical treatment takes 25 minutes maximum per area (Treatment time vary slightly depending on machine model/area). We advise the client to wait 20-30 days before they embark on a second session. This is to ensure they see the results from the first session and the body has time to remove the frozen fat cells.
A 20% – 30% reduction of body fat is the expected removal in one session.
