Fat freezing, or cryogenic lipolysis, is exactly like what it sounds – fat cells are frozen for a period of time in the aim to reduce them, and it’s a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
It originated after research was done into frostbite, and it was noted that fat cells would freeze before skin freezes.
As it’s a procedure done by a professional, it can selectively target anywhere, such as tummy, thighs, or arms, so that the patient can choose their problematic areas.
Triglyceride in fat solidifies at about -4 degrees, at that low temperature the cells die, decompose through the liver and the metabolism, then excreted out of body naturally.
Some stubborn fat bulges are immune to diet and exercise. The silicone Cryo cup will target and cool fat cells to temperatures that trigger fat cell apoptosis. There is no damage to nerves or other tissues because lipids in fat crystallize at a warmer temperature than water in other cell types.
Following the treatment, fat cells enter an apoptotic death sequence and are gradually removed in the next few weeks and months by the immune system. Leaving the fat layer thickness significantly reduced.
After exposing the fat to cold for a certain amount of time, the scientists found the fat cells had become terminally injured and that they gradually die over time following their exposure to the cold. The body removes these dying cells naturally, through the natural processes and lymphatic system, and it does so safely with no increase in cholesterol or triglyceride levels in the blood.
Prefect client for this treatment:
-Someone who has stubborn fat area/s that has not responded to normal diet and exercise
-Someone who is eating sensibly and not consuming too much fat (the daily recommended amount for your body type is fine, you don’t need to diet)
-Someone who is committed to losing fat to work along side a new healthy eating plan
-Someone who wants to contour areas of their body
The treatment also includes cavitation and radio frequency to help break down the fat cells and tighten skin
*the fat cells targeted will gradually die after the treatment (over days, weeks, months) but if you continue to eat too much fat new ones will form in there place over time.
