What is cryosculpting? Dive deep into the science of fat freezing and body sculpting
Cryotherapy treatments offer a groundbreaking approach to non-surgical body contouring. It utilizes controlled cooling to target and eliminate resistant fat that persists despite diet and exercise efforts. Cryo-sculpt goes a step further, effectively eliminating fat cells for lasting results. Keep reading to discover what is Cryosculpting is and how does it work.
Cryosculpting: An Overview
- Cryosculpting is a popular body contouring treatment utilizing a specialized fat-freezing technique called cryolipolysis. This non-surgical approach to body shaping and fat reduction harnesses the effects of extremely cold temperatures on fat cells. It targets stubborn fat in specific body areas using cryolipolysis, an FDA-approved method since 2010.
Inspired by the effects of frostbite on fat, scientists developed cryolipolysis, where fat freezes at a temperature higher than the skin. The cryolipolysis device cools the fat to a temperature that destroys it, leaving the skin and surrounding tissues unharmed.
How Does Cryosculpting Work?
- Cryosculpting is a non-surgical and needle-free procedure. The process involves placing the targeted body part between two cooling paddles. These paddles rapidly cool, remaining in position for approximately 35 minutes to over 1 hour. The intense coldness induces apoptosis (cell death) in fat cells without harming surrounding tissues.
Over this period, about 20%-25% of the fat cells in the targeted area are destroyed. While the final results may take a few months, noticeable changes may appear within a few weeks. The immune system gradually eliminates the dead fat cells during this time.
Who Can Benefit From Cryosculpting?
- Cryosculpting can target and treat approximately 20-30% of fat cells in a specific area. It is versatile and can effectively treat various body parts requiring contouring or fat reduction, including the abdomen, love handles, arms, thighs, and neck. Moreover, individuals of all skin types can benefit from the potential advantages. However, it is crucial to emphasize that cryo-sculpting is not a weight loss treatment. It is exclusively designed for body sculpting.
Therefore, the ideal candidate is someone seeking to address specific problem areas and stubborn fat pockets that may persist despite efforts in diet and exercise. In addition, you should avoid cryolipolysis if you have loose skin, cryoglobulinemia, a condition causing abnormal proteins in your blood to thicken in cold temperatures, cold urticaria, a skin condition triggering hives in cold conditions, or Raynaud’s phenomenon.
Convenience Of The Treatment
- Cryosculpting is not considered a painful treatment, eliminating the need for anesthetic precautions. Clients may experience slight discomfort as their skin acclimates to the intense cooling sensation, but the treatment is highly tolerable overall. Moreover, no specific preparation is required before undergoing the treatment.
However, setting realistic expectations is crucial for informed decision-making. To ensure clients understand the process and potential outcomes clearly, schedule a consultation before booking the treatment. This consultation allows for personalized discussions, addressing individual concerns and tailoring the Crypsculpting experience to meet each client’s unique needs and expectations.
- Clients can promptly resume their daily activities after the treatment, although visible results may take some time. Some individuals may experience slight tenderness and a cold sensation at the treatment sites immediately after, but these sensations typically subside within hours.
The treatment offers optimal results when Cryosculpting is combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Clients who revert to unhealthy lifestyle habits are at a higher risk of regaining lost fat. Since each session can address only 20-30% of fat cells, clients are advised to consider a regimen of 2-3 sessions and assess progress from there.
