What is cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis uses low temperatures to eliminate localized fat.  The device is placed on the surface of the skin, causing the fat cells to be frozen at negative temperatures to be destroyed.

at low temperature, the fat cells - called adipocytes - rupture completely.

As a result, the body understands that they are no longer part of the organism and expels them naturally.


The treatment has been so successful that it is being called "the new liposuction", with the difference that unlike this method, cryolipolysis is not a surgical procedure.


Cryolipolysis is done with a specific device whose applicators are perfectly matched to different areas of the body.  the tip of the device performs a powerful vacuum that promotes the suction of the skin and the localized fat portion.

At the same time, intense and controlled cooling of fat destroys fat cells.  Controlled cooling acts by selectively damaging fat cells, which are more sensitive to cold, without causing any damage to nearby nerves, muscles and other structures.  "In practice what happens is the death of the fat cell",

The cryolipolysis apparatus is adapted for each area of ​​the body.  "For the belly area there is a large tip, while for the back and side handles the small tip is used

The elimination of adipocyte structures destroyed at low temperature is done by the immune system and the fat inside the cells is carried to the liver by the lymphatic system for its metabolism.  Since the lymphatic system takes only a small amount of fat daily to be metabolized, there is no danger of liver overload in this process.

"It is possible to measure the difference on the tape measure, but the best way to make the comparison is through photographs of before and after, in the same position", explains the expert.  In a single session, scientific studies at Harvard point to a reduction of up to 40% of the fat located in the treated region.  But of course, the results vary from person to person.
