CRYOLIPOLYSIS

06.09.2021

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.

The principle of the cryolipolysis method in cosmetology

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.

What cryolipolysis device is used at the Gold Laser clinic in Kyiv?

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.).

Advantages and disadvantages of cryolipolysis compared with other weight loss treatments

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.криолиполиз киев голд лазер

Cryolipolysis has a number of undeniable advantages:

  • Safety. Exposure to cold does not affect the functioning of the nervous and circulatory systems, as well as internal organs.
  • Accuracy. The cryo device acts purposefully on specific problem areas without affecting the surrounding tissues.
  • Painlessness. In the first minutes, the patient may notice discomfort and subsequent numbness of the affected area.
  • Fast results. After the first session within 2 weeks, the fat fold is reduced in volume by 20-35%, each subsequent procedure leads to a result of up to 80%.
  • No rehabilitation. The procedure in any way does not affects integrity of the skin, and takes place without anesthesia. The patient can immediately return to usual daily activities.
  • Availability. The cost of cryolipolysis is simply affordable and much lower in comparison with methods of surgical body shaping.

Among the disadvantages of the method:

  • Lack of a expressed effect on the day of the procedure. The first visible results are noticeable after 14 days.
  • The need for a course of procedures. As a rule, one session may not be enough to completely eliminate fat deposits. The course should include at least 2-4 procedures.

Indications for cryolipolysis (nonsurgical fat reduction)

Nonsurgical fat reduction is indicated for:

  • The presence of local fat folds 2,5-6 cm thick, which cannot be corrected by traditional methods of losing weight – sports, diets, massage;
  • Decreased skin tone.

Experienced dermatologists of Gold Laser clinic will help to weigh the pros and cons for the expediency of cryolipolysis in each specific case.

Contraindications to cryolipolysis or who should not undergo the procedure

The cryolipolysis procedure will be contraindicated if the patient has the following conditions:

  • Pregnancy, lactation;
  • Obesity;
  • Allergy to cold;
  • Circulatory disorders in the planned correction zone;
  • Diabetes;
  • Violation of blood clotting;
  • Damage to the skin in the place of the planned correction;
  • Use of pacemakers;
  • Acute inflammatory processes;
  • Oncology.

What areas of the body are available for cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is performed on:

  • thighs (including on the inner surface), sides, back, buttocks with medium pair handpieces,
  • abdomen with a large handpiece;
  • arms, knees, shoulders, waist with curved paired handpieces;
  • in the “double chin” area with a special handpiece for the face.

What result does cryolipolysis achieve?

After a course of procedures, experts note a decrease in subcutaneous fat by 80%.

Preparing for the cryolipolysis procedure

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.

Stages of the cryolipolysis procedure at the clinic

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:

In our clinic, you can simultaneously perform the procedure on 4 zones, significantly saving your time!

Recovery period after cryolipolysis

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.

When can you see first results after cryolipolysis (cryo-modeling)?

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%.

How often can cryolipolysis be done?

With significant body fat, a cryolipolysis course is recommended with intervals between sessions of 25-45 days.

How many cryolipolysis sessions are needed?

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.

Such simple habits will allow you to achieve maximum results and maintain personal harmony for a long time!

Benefits of cryolipolysis for weight loss

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.
