What is Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis, also referred to fat freezing is a non-invasive alternative to liposuction that involves the localised application of a low temperature device to break down and destroy stubborn fat cells. These dead cells are then
transported by the lymphatic system, processed and eliminated by the body.
What does the treatment process involve?
During the procedure, special cooling applicators are placed directly onto the skin above the fatty area you want to target. Once the machine is switched on, a strong vacuum effect pulls the excess fat into the suction plate, and you then lie attached to the machine whilst the ‘freezing’ effect takes place. After the session, your body then works to remove the crystallised fat cells, causing them to initially shrink and then break down before being absorbed completely over a period of 6 weeks.
What machine do you use for the treatment?
At Adonia we pride ourselves on using the latest, most advance technology to bring you the results you deserve. Our Cryolipolysis machine features 4 x 360 degree specially designed applicators which firstly deliver heat to the target area to improve blood circulation, followed by cooling to minus temperatures which freeze the fat cell without damaging the overlying skin. This method triggers fat cells apoptosis, the body’s immune system that naturally processes the fat and eliminates dead cells. With just one treatment up to 40% of fat cells are eliminated and the thickness of the fat layer is significantly reduced.
Why 360 degree applicators?
The 360 degree applicators use 360 degree cooling plates to freeze the entire target area, this eliminates up to 50% more fat cells than standard applicators.
Are there any side-effects?
Clinical studies on cryolipolysis have established its safety, efficacy and tolerability for fat reduction. Most risks highlighted in relation to cryolipolysis are deemed mild and transient and include redness, bruising, swelling,
tenderness, bruising, altered sensation and numbness that usually resolve within 14 days after treatment. You will be fully consulted before any treatment to discuss the side effects in detail.
What areas can be treated?
Areas that can be treated include:
• Love Handles/Flanks
• Inner and Outer Thighs
• Upper Arms/Bingo Wings
• Bra and Backs Rolls
When will I see results and how long do they last?
The results of cryolipolysis are not immediate. Since the fat slowly leaves the body over time, you can expect to see initial results within two to four weeks, more defined results within six to eight weeks, and final results within 3-4
months. To maintain the results it is important to follow a healthy low calorie diet and exercise regularly. It is also important to drink 8 glasses of water a day before and after the treatment. Fat elimination is accelerated by the amount of water you drink therefore, water is key component to eliminating the fat.
