Coolsculpting - Body Fat Reduction
You exercise and eat healthy, but the fat on your belly, love handles, thighs and arms won’t go away? In Celevenus, we are constantly looking for the latest technology and innovative treatments for body contouring and we are happy to introduce Fat Freezing – LipoCryo as one of our slimming modalities.
WHAT IS CRYOLIPOLYSIS?
Cryolipolysis is an FDA approved technology. It was developed by dermatologists at Harvard Medical School. They found that cooling kills fat cells while preserving other tissues. This advanced technology is ideal for removing small pockets of fat from stubborn areas to reveal the toned muscle underneath.
We recommend this treatment for removing fat lumps from the abdomen, love handles, thighs and arms.
HOW DOES LIPOCRYO WORK?
Studies have shown Fat Freezing or Cryoliposis to be effective on an average 20% of the fat cells in the treatment area in just one session. LipoCryo works through the process Cryoliposis which destroys fat cells by cooling them. Fat cells are known to be more susceptible to damage by cooling than skin cells are, and therefore it is possible to cool a localised area and damage the fat cells whilst leaving the skin unharmed.
By cooling an area to around 4 degrees Celsius, LipoCryo causes cell death and an inflammatory response in the fat layer. Over the course of several months the body will work to flush out the dead cells which results in a reduced fat layer in the targeted area.
CRYOLIPOLYSIS (COOL SCULPTING)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A vacuum suction cup is applied to the treatment area, which is then frozen, killing the fat cells while preserving other tissues that are much less sensitive to cooling.
WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT CELLS THAT HAVE BEEN TREATED?
Fats in the damaged fat cells are slowly absorbed and metabolized in the body. Increasing physical activity increases the fat metabolism.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REDUCING FAT AND WEIGHT LOSS?
Many people have the misconception that fat reduction and weight loss are the same thing. However, when your weight goes down, the fat cells simply reduce in size but not in number. When you gain weight again, these fat cells simply grow back to its previous size.
The CoolSculpting technique reduces the number of fat cells in your body; this means that you will no longer gain weight in the same manner as you did previously. Distribution of fat cells in untreated areas does not change either, meaning you do not have to worry about weight gain in other body parts.
HOW LONG IS THE SESSION AND HOW MANY SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?
60 minutes and average of 3 to 4 sessions.
WHEN WILL THE RESULT SHOWS? *
Results are seen in as little as three weeks from the first treatment, further and improved results can be seen when the body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these fat cells through the lymphatic system. This process continues for up to six months.
* Results vary for individuals.
WHAT WILL I FEEL AFTER THE SESSION?
After the treatment, the treated area is massaged for 5 minutes, you may feel some tingling sensation. There is usually no discomfort after the treatment but occasionally a bruise may be noted for a couple of days because of the suction.
WHO IS THE SUITABLE PATIENT?
Cryolipolysis is not a weight loss procedure. It’s most suitable for individuals close to the normal body weight but suffer from localized fatty area that doesn’t go with diet and exercise.
HOW CAN I MAXIMIZE THE BENEFIT FROM THE SESSION?
Healthy diet and regular exercise will help in the metabolism of fatty acids released from damaged fat cells.
