We are having several sessions of Cryolipolysis demo this week at Premier Clinic, Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Cryolipolysis, or Cryolipo for short, is a method of freezing off unwanted fat cells which will lead to loss of inches in the targeted area.
The Cryolipo procedure involves applying the machine’s handpiece over the treated area. When switched on, a gentle vacuum suction and cooling of tissue will start. The Cryolipo machine brings down the temperature of the treated area to 5 degrees Celsius. At this temperature, the fat cells get injured as they are more sensitive to the cold whereas the skin, nerves and muscle do not. Over the course of the next 3 to 4 months, the fat cells would be naturally eliminated by the body’s immune system. This in turn causes the area to become slimmer and more physically attractive.
Commonly treated areas include tummy, love handles, thighs and arms. Each session of Cryolipolysis takes one hour. More than 1 session can be performed, once every few months to give even better results.
The advantage of this procedure is that there is no risk of anesthesia as opposed to surgery such as liposuction. There is also no scarring or risk of infection. There may be some redness and swelling on the treated area which disappears in a few day. There might be tingling sensation or numbness over the treated area but this will go off in less than 2 weeks. There is no downtime and the client can go back to work or exercise right after the Cryolipo.
