Cryolipolysis, liposuction by cold.
As often happens, some areas of human body are less susceptible to weight loss than others due to certain constitutional peculiarities. These frequently include abdomen and body sides in men, and hip area or internal thigh portions in women. Despite strict diets and active physical exercise, these areas are the last to get slimmer, and frequently do not respond to the efforts at all. Stature type and its peculiarities are the traits we inherit; with age, they become more apparent and less susceptible to the effects of sport and diets. Liposuction is one of the most effective ways to solve this problem. But what can be done if surgical intervention is contraindicated for certain reasons, or one just wishes to avoid surgery? Go for cryolipolysis!
This problem can be solved by cryolipolysis, exposure of the area of concern to negative temperatures. Fat cells exposed to cold become crystallized and subsequently destroyed, and eventually eliminated in the natural way. Besides, the skin on treated area becomes essentially lifted due to cold effects, which makes this procedure a true catch for those tired of arm sagginess.
There are many devices offering a substitute for cryolipolysis; in this case, you might be suggested to treat several areas at once, and the device would expose one area for a few minutes with subsequent change of the treated area; a session in this case lasts for not more than 40 minutes, and the temperature is not decreased to the one optimal for destruction of lipid cells. This session is relatively inexpensive, and achievement of a result requires about 10 procedures. Pronounced results should not be expected with such devices.
What is it like?
Procedure of “true” cold liposuction lasts for about 70 minutes, during which the nozzle treats a certain area without interruptions. The cost of one session may vary from 500 to 1000 euros. Nevertheless, achievement of the final result requires not less than two sessions.
Unfortunately, this method is effective for stature correction only and would not help in case of apparent overweight problems. Mean volume decrease within 8 weeks after the first procedure is 3 centimetres. Most frequently treated areas include hips, sides, abdomen, arms, and knees.
Currently, medical community has confirmed the efficacy of only one stature improvement apparatus, American apparatus Coolsculpting by Zeltiq Aestetics. This machine also has a French clone called Cristal.
