Cryolipolysis Freezes & Eliminates Stubborn Fat
The Cryolypolysis procedure safely delivers precisely controlled cooling to gently and effectively target the fat cells underneath the skin. Treated fat cells are crystalized (frozen), then die. Over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you
Fat Elimination After the Cryolipolysis Procedure
Fat cells that are frozen during the Cryolypolysis procedure gradually die off and leave the body through the body’s natural elimination process. That’s why the results are long-term. The fat is gone for good! Untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.

Check out what the media has been saying about the non-invasive Cryolipolysis procedure. The treatment has been getting rave reviews.
What is it?
Cryolipolysis is a medical device that may reduce the layer of fat under your skin by using non-invasive controlled cooling. It is intended to affect the appearance of the thighs, abdomen, and flanks (also known as love handles) bra fat, back fat, fat under the buttocks (also known as banana roll. It is not a treatment for obesity or a weight loss solution and it does not replace traditional methods such as diet, exercise or liposuction.
What does it do?
Cryolipolysis technology uses controlled cooling to target and freeze a portion of the fat cells under your skin. In the weeks that follow treatment, the body naturally begins to process the fat cells that were frozen during treatment and removes them from the treatment site thereby affecting the appearance of the treated bulge. You may start to see changes in as early as three weeks after your Cryolipolysis procedure, and will experience the most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body will continue to naturally process the injured fat cells for approximately four months after your procedure. Results may take up to 4 months to become visible.
FAT FREEZING DURING THE COOLSCULPTING PROCEDURE
How is it used? What does it feel like?
During your treatment, a gel or gelpad and applicator are applied to the targeted area. Applicators that use vacuum will draw the tissue into the applicator cup. You may feel pulling, tugging, and mild pinching. Controlled cooling is then delivered to the targeted fat so you may feel intense cold but this feeling typically goes down within 10 minutes as the area becomes numb. In some cases you may feel pulsatile massage. Upon removal of the applicator, you may see the frozen bulge (known as a “butterstick”). The physician may apply manual massage to rewarm and smooth out the treated area.
What are possible side effects?
The following effects can occur in the treatment area during and after a treatment. These effects are temporary and generally resolve within days or weeks. During a treatment: Sensations of pulling, tugging, and mild pinching at the treatment site. Intense cold, tingling, stinging, aching, cramping. These sensations subside as the area becomes numb. Immediately after a treatment: Redness and firmness.Transient blanching and/or mild bruising around the edges of the treatment area. Tingling and stinging. One to two weeks after a treatment: Redness, bruising, and swelling. Tenderness, cramping, and aching. Itching, skin sensitivity, tingling, and numbness. Numbness can persist up to several weeks after a treatment. Sensation of fullness in the back of the throat after submental area treatment. There are other side effects that can occur with submental area treatments: Cold exposure to the hypoglossal nerve may cause tongue deviation following treatment of the submental area. Cold exposure to the marginal mandibular nerve may cause lower lip weakness following treatment of the submental area. Cold exposure to the submandibular gland may cause dry mouth, or decrease in saliva production, following treatment of the submental area

Known sensitivity or allergy to isopropyl alcohol, propylene glycol, fructose and glycerin. Impaired peripheral circulation in the area to be treated. Nerve pain such as post-herpetic neuralgia or diabetic neuropathy. Impaired skin sensation. Open or infected wounds. Bleeding disorders or simultaneous use of blood thinners. Recent surgery or scar tissue in the area to be treated. Hernia in or adjacent to the treatment site. Skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, or rashes in the area to be treated.
