Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis Beauty salon halifax

Cryolipolysis selectively targets the water content of the fat cell. A temperature of -6 degrees is applied to the area of concern and maintained for a pre determined time period to damage the fat cells. The damaged fat cells begin a natural removal process that continues for up to 3 months.

 How does the Cryo treatment work?

Cryolipolysis uses a chilled hand piece to create apoptosis within the fat in targeted areas.  Cryo will treat ‘pockets of fat’ situated around the body.  Ideal for sculpting the body shape.

Between 20-40% of the fat cells in the treated area die in a natural way and dissolve over a course of weeks.

 What happens to the fat?

When fat cells are exposed to a precise cooling below body temperature, they undergo crystallisation, separation and localised cell death (apoptosis).  This is followed by a local inflammatory response.  Apoptosis – Is sometimes referred to as programmed cell death the process of apoptosis follows a controlled, predictable routine.

During Cryolipolysis the cell shrinks and sends out distress signals, which are answered by macrophages. The macrophages clean away the shrunken or damaged cells, leaving no trace. This stimulates a natural fat removal process that continues for several months after the procedure.

 Who is it for?

Cryolipolysis will treat ‘pockets of fat’ situated around the body.  Ideal for sculpting the body shape.

 What body areas are treated?

The Cryo treatment focuses on pockets of fat on the abdomen and flanks, under arm and inside thighs.

 What results can I expect?

Between 20-40% of the fat cells in the treated area die in a natural way and dissolve over a course of weeks.

 What will I experience during treatment?

Firstly a Cryo pad containing skin protecting fluid is applied to the treatment area.  The Cryo hand piece is attached to the treatment area and delivers a gentle vacuum suction.  This draws the tissue between the cooling panels within the hand piece.  The hand piece stays on the skin for 45 minutes.

 What happens after treatment?

As soon as the session is over, the treatment area will feel cold to touch and slightly numb.  The area can be red and swollen and localised numbness can be experienced for up to 2 months.  The treated area can feel cold and firm for up to 2 weeks and occasionally bruising can occur and last for up to 10 days.  The results of the Cryolipolysis procedure are usually visible two to four months after treatment, and will continue to improve for up to six months
