What is Cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting)?
Cryolipolisis derived from Greek, κρύος – kryos” – ice and “λίπα- lipa” which means fat and “λύσις .lysis” meaning dissolvent. Cryolipolysis is a cosmetical treatment that removes fat by freezing. The method involves 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.
How does CoolSculpting ( Cryolipolysis ) work ?
Recent studies show that fat cells do not tolerate the cold and comparing to other tissues, they react much faster once undergoing freezing process. These facts are being used by cryolipolysis. During cryolipolysis treatment, tissue has been 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 equal reduction of fat surface on treated body areas.
How will the fat cells be destroyed ?
The aim of cryolipolysis is to cause controlled death of fat cells on certain body parts. Exposure to cold leads to apostosis (programmed death of cells) and that one leads to liberation of cykotyne and other inflammatory mediators. Few weeks after the treatment, cell lipids are being slowly deconstructed and go through lymph system for further processing. During such process, there are no changes manifested in blood of the body fat percentage nor in the function of kidney.
Does CoolSculpting cause damage to tissue or skin ?
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 becoming crystalized on temperatures from 12 °C.
How am I going to feel after the treatment ?
The coolsculpting treatment has a strange feeling but not an unpleasant one. Once you have undergone a treatment, you can return to your daily duties. As such treatment does not require any relief, you can even practice sports if you like.
What results can I exprect ?
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. Few weeks after a treatment, it may show the reduction of fat layers from 25-40-%. That means reduction of a treated area from 2-6 after a single treatment. Results are always individual and depend on bulk’s fat layers as well as on the treated areas. Diet plays a crucial role for improving those results. If one eats healthy and dietary, results can even prove twice better. In case one practices unhealthy nutrition, cryo-effect won’t be missing but results will be overlaid with bulked fat cells, that are not covered in a first treatment.
Will my skin dissolute after the CoolSculpting treatment ?
No, Coosculpting leads to a step by step fat cell reduction on treated skin areas. Skin has enough time to react properly and recover. A dissolute skin one gets only by fast and heavy weight of loss.
Will I lose weight after the treatment ?
No, Coolsculpting does not lead to weight loss. Coolsculpting reduces fat layer on treated areas. This result is not being measured in kilograms but in centimeters. In case you have a problem with obesity, then the right medicine is a healthy diet and nutrition. Coolsculpting reduces fat layers on areas that are difficult to shape by taking a diet or practicing sports.
