Cryolipolysis derived from Greek, κρύος – kryos” – ice and “λίπα- lipa” which means fat and “λύσις .lysis” meaning dissolvent. Cryolipolysis is a cosmetic treatment that removes fat by freezing. The method involves the controlled application of cooling within the temperature range of -11 to +5 °C for the non-invasive, localized reduction of fat deposits, intending to reshape the contours of the body. The degree of exposure to cooling causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue, without apparent damage to the overlying skin. It appears primarily applicable to limited discrete fat bulges. As such this method is the most efficient non-invasive treatment for steady fat reduction.

Recent studies show that fat cells do not tolerate the cold and in comparison, to other tissues, they react much faster once undergoing they undergo the freezing process. These facts are being used in cryolipolysis treatments. During cryolipolysis treatments, the tissue is exposed to low temperatures. Apoptosis is activated in fat cells (controlled fat dissolution) and it takes a week until the body deconstructs fat cells after the treatment. The result will be the reduction of fat on treated body areas.

The aim of cryolipolysis is to cause controlled death of fat cells on certain body parts. Exposure to cold leads to apoptosis (programmed death of cells) and that one leads to the liberation of cykotyne and other inflammatory mediators. Few weeks after the treatment, cell lipids are being slowly deconstructed and go through the lymph system for further processing. During such process, there are no changes manifested in neither the blood and body fat percentage nor in the function of the kidneys.

No. Skin cells, muscles cells, and nerve cells remain intact while treated. Lipids within fat cells are much more sensitive to cold than cells of other tissues. It is well known that lipids are crystallized at temperatures around 12 °C.

The CoolSculpting treatment has a strange feeling but not an unpleasant one. Once you have undergone treatment, you can return to your daily routine. As such treatment does not require any resting period, you can even practice sports if you like.

Clinical studies show that Coolsculpting treatment leads to substantial loss of fat tissue in the period of 2 to 4 months after a single treatment. A few weeks after treatment, it may show the reduction of fat layers from 25-40-%. That means the reduction of a treated area from 2-6 after a single treatment. Results are always dependent on the individual; the bulk’s fat layers as well as on the treated areas. Diet plays a crucial role in improving those results. If one eats healthy by following our custom nutrition plan, results can even prove twice better. In case one practices unhealthy nutrition, the cryo-effect won’t be missing but results will be cancelled out by bulked fat cells, that are not covered in a first treatment.

No, CoolSculpting leads to a step-by-step fat cell reduction on treated skin areas. The skin has enough time to react properly and recover. People only get dissolute skin due to rapid weight loss.

No, Coolsculpting treatments do not lead to weight loss. Coolsculpting reduces the fat layer on treated areas. This result is not being measured in kilograms but centimetres. In case you have a problem with obesity, then the right medicine is a healthy custom diet plan and good nutrition. Coolsculpting reduces fat layers on areas that are difficult to shape by taking a diet or practicing sports.
