WHAT IS CRYOLIPOLYSIS? HOW DOES 3D CRYOLIPOLYSIS WORK?
A targeted super-cooling process using a special vacuumed applicator, that lowers the treatment area to -6oC. Clinical studies show fat cells cannot survive at this temperature and so it effectively kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. The benefit of this technology is that no other cells are affected, only the fat cells are frozen. Only fat cells can’t survive under such temperatures. During the process, the fat cells crystallize, and die and are naturally eliminated from your body. During the next few months, as those fat cells are naturally dispersed, your new body shape appears.
No treatment discomfort. No downtime. No knives. No suction hoses. No needles. No scars. Just a Non-Surgical 3D alternative to liposuction.
Using the unique combination of electro and cryo therapy 20-40% of the fat cells in the treated area die in a natural way and dissolve over the course of several months.
WHO DISCOVERED CRYOLIPOLYSIS?
Cryolipolysis was discovered by Dermatologists Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD, of the WellmanCenter for Photomedicine at Massachusetts GeneralHospital, Boston, MA, a teaching affiliate of HarvardMedicalSchool. Drs. Manstein and Anderson and their research team proved that, under carefully controlled laboratory conditions, subcutaneous fat cells are naturally more vulnerable to the effects of cold than other surrounding tissues. Their paper published in November 2008, concluded that prolonged, controlled local tissue cooling can induce selective fat cell reduction and subsequent loss of subcutaneous fat without damaging the overlying skin. This discovery, called “selective cryolysis,” led to the development of the technology behind the non-invasive 3D Cryolipolysis Procedure.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR 3D CRYOLIPOLYSIS?
3D Cryolipolysis is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese, or a substitute for surgical methods such as liposuction. Good candidates have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Your therapist will determine if treatment is right for you during a free one-on-one consultation.
HOW LONG IS EACH TREATMENT?
During your consultation, your therapist will discuss how much time should be allotted based on your individual treatment plan. A typical treatment can last between one and two hours.
IS CRYOLIPOLYSIS SAFE? PAINFUL? ARE THERE SIDE EFFECTS?
Cryolipolysis is FDA-cleared for the flanks (love handles) and abdomen and is proven to be a safe and effective treatment. Typically, there is minimal to no downtime after the treatment though clients may experience temporary pain or discomfort. Side effects can include redness, bruising, swelling, tenderness to the touch, cramping, itching, tingling, and numbness. Numbness can persist up to several weeks after a procedure. Your therapist can talk to you more about what to expect during and after treatment when you meet for your consultation.
