Cryolipolysis : fat freezingDestroy fat by cold
Cryolipolysis is a technique in aesthetic medicine based on the fact that fat cells are sensitive to cold. The term cryolipolysis literally means the destruction of fat by cold.

Cryolipolysis procedureAn initial visit is important to understand if Cryolipolysis is the appropriate treatment for the patient, or if other medical and cosmetic procedures should be considered. The expert physician will assess the areas to be treated and set goals with the patient.
He or she will usually weigh the patient and take photographs to visualise the before and after of the treatment.
Before giving the green light to the cryolipolysis treatment, blood tests must be carried out to check that the liver is functioning properly and that it is capable of eliminating the waste products resulting from the degradation of fat cells.
Before starting the Cryolipolysis treatment, the doctor applies a sheet soaked in antifreeze that adheres to the skin and allows the handpiece to have a better grip.
In addition, this gel is also useful to better protect the outer layers of the skin. At this point, the machine is turned on and the handpiece placed on the area to be treated: the suction process begins by sucking up the fat cells.
For a few minutes, the side plates of the machine apply cold according to the programme chosen by the expert. It is normal to feel a numbing sensation, but the treatment is not painful.
After the Cryolipolysis treatmentImmediately after the Cryolipolysis treatment, the treated area may be red, but only for a few hours. In the hours or days that follow, you may experience some bruising and uncomfortable numbness. In all cases, the bruising or swelling will disappear after a few weeks. The side effects are minor and often reversible. They are cited below:
- superficial burns
- a transient loss of sensitivity.
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Massage to help eliminate swelling
- Stay hydrated (water but also green tea during the fat removal process)
- Do not drink alcohol during the lymphatic drainage process as it increases lipogenesis
- Do not use a sauna, Turkish bath or whirlpool in the week following the treatment, as this may aggravate bruising and pain.
- Do not use laser or pulsed light treatment 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the treatment.
- Do not sunbathe or use a lamp on the parts of the body to be treated
- Do not treat areas with recent (red) stretch marks or scars (less than one year).
Cryolipolysis resultsCryolipolysis is increasingly in demand, especially for areas of the body affected by localised fat, which is difficult to combat by diet and exercise alone. It is particularly indicated for eliminating abdominal fat and all the bulges located on the hips, back, arms, inner and outer thighs, knees and saddlebags.
The first results are seen after 2 weeks of treatment, while after 2/3 months the final result is achieved and a reduction in fatty tissue and a natural decrease in the volume of the treated area is observed.
