Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure alternative to liposuction, which used in cooling adipose tissues with a help of a special device, followed by their withering away. Thus, even a single session allows you to get rid of 20-35% of local fat deposits. The procedure can be done on the body and on the face.
Through vacuum aspiration, a special handpiece of the cryo device captures a fold of skin with excess fat cells (adipocytes) and gradually cools it down to a temperature of -15 ℃. The device, depending on the specification, is equipped with two or four handpieces to capture fat folds in parallel zones.
Skin cells easily tolerate cooling and regenerate quickly. Fat cells, on the other hand, have no defence mechanisms against exposure to low temperatures. When cooled during a cryotherapy session, irreversible biochemical processes are triggered in the cells of the subcutaneous fat, which lead to their natural death. It is important that there are no signs of inflammation in the tissues. Over the next four weeks, the volume of adipose tissue is physiologically reduced.
At the Gold Laser clinic, we use an innovative cryolipolysis device ORCHESTRA Cool made by IDS (South Korea). The device is equipped with four handpieces for working with any size areas of adipose tissue, including the correction of the “double chin”.
The super powerful cooling system, which reduces processing temperature to -15 ℃, allows you to get the desired result from the very first session. At the same time, the procedure on the ORCHESTRA Cool is absolutely painless, non-traumatic, safe, effective even on those areas that cannot be corrected by other methods (inner thighs, knees, “double chin”, etc.).
The main advantage of ORCHESTRA Cool cryolipolysis is the destruction of adipocytes before their complete death. After the destruction of fat cells by cryolipolysis and adhere to principles of proper diet, the patient does not risk re-gaining weight.
Cryolipolysis has a number of undeniable advantages:
Among the disadvantages of the method:
Nonsurgical fat reduction is indicated for:
Experienced dermatologists of Gold Laser clinic will help to weigh the pros and cons for the expediency of cryolipolysis in each specific case.
The cryolipolysis procedure will be contraindicated if the patient has the following conditions:
Cryolipolysis is performed on:
After a course of procedures, experts note a decrease in subcutaneous fat by 80%.
On the eve of the procedure, the patient should not go to the sauna and solarium for a day, do not eat 1,5 hours before procedure.
Cryolipolysis can be performed only after an in-person consultation with a dermatologist at the Gold Laser clinic. During consultation, the doctor collects anamnesis, identifies the presence or absence of contraindications, and compose an individual correction plan. If the procedure is indicated, the doctor notes the initial problem areas by taking photos and other measurements in the patient’s card, and also marks the areas for correction before the manipulation.
In the treatment room, the patient takes a lying position on the couch. The doctor puts a napkin with a conductive gel on the skin, covers it with a special film and fixes the handpiece according to the markings. With the help of a vacuum, the handpiece captures the fat fold. There is a gradual “freezing” of the cells of the subcutaneous fat to a temperature of -15 ℃, while the patient does not notice any discomfort.
A cryolipolysis session lasts about one hour. At the end of this time, the doctor removes the handpiece and massages the fat fold. Then the problem areas are measured again and photos taken for the second time to compare the effect before and after the procedure.
Dermatologist of the Gold Laser Dziuba Karinaа notes:
There is no recovery period at all. After the procedure, erythema (redness) appears in the treated area, which passes within an hour. Immediately after the session and for the following 3 days, you should not take a hot shower, sunbathe, or actively do sports.
The first insignificant result from the procedure (a decrease in volume by 1-2 cm) is noticeable immediately after the session. After 2 weeks, this effect will intensify. After a course of 3-4, sometimes 6 sessions, the layer of subcutaneous fat will decrease by 80%.
With significant body fat, a cryolipolysis course is recommended with intervals between sessions of 25-45 days.
The number of sessions can be up to 4 times a year at intervals of 25-45 days. Overall, the number of sessions is depends on the thickness of the adipose tissue and the peculiarity of the correction zones.
The price of cryolipolysis at the Gold Laser clinic is 5000 UAH per zone. The price for the procedure and the current discounts are described in the price list.
Cryolipolysis can be combined with lipolytic mesotherapy, which promotes the breakdown of fat cells, as well as LPG massage, which enhances lymph flow and blood circulation, removing excess fluid from the subcutaneous fat.
The most common side effects of cryolipolysis are bruising, swelling, numbness, and post-procedure pain in the tissues and abdomen (for women, with cryolipolysis of the abdomen). All symptoms are temporary and disappear within a few days.
If the post-procedural water drinking, food and sports regimen is kept, the effect of cryolipolysis persists for many years.
To receive the best possible results, doctors at the Gold Laser clinic recommend patients after cryolipolysis to give up smoking, alcohol and junk food, increase the amount of drinking water consumption up to 2,5 liters per day, and lead an active, healthy lifestyle. Such simple habits will allow you to achieve maximum results and maintain personal harmony for a long time!
One of the main advantages of cryolipolysis comparing with other surgical or other technologies for fat reduction is non-invasiveness, which means that for patients there is no risk of infection. The second advantage is good tolerance and a high degree of patient comfort during manipulation. The third advantage is the absence of preparation for the procedure and the absence of a recovery period. It is important that cryolipolysis is suitable for women and men of any age, and effectively reduces fat deposits on any part of the body.
