Cryolipolysis for Fat Reduction

This Subzero cryotherapy device employs pressurized CO2 gas to focus on a specific body area, inducing “thermal shock.” This abrupt temperature drop promptly stimulates the body’s healing response, facilitating the elimination of skin toxins, encouraging the development of robust collagen fibers, shaping the body, and diminishing fat.

Process of Cryolipolysis:

Targeted Cooling: The procedure involves using a device that suctions the targeted area of the body, exposing it to controlled cooling. This cooling is precise enough to freeze and damage fat cells without harming the surrounding skin and tissues.

Crystalization of Fat Cells: The low temperatures cause the fat cells to crystalize, leading to their structural damage. Fat cells are more susceptible to cold than other types of cells, and this selective vulnerability allows for the destruction of fat cells while leaving other cells unharmed.

Apoptosis: Following the crystallization, the damaged fat cells undergo a natural cell death process called apoptosis. Over time, the body recognizes these dead cells and eliminates them through its natural metabolic processes.

Gradual Fat Elimination: The body gradually processes and eliminates the damaged fat cells through the lymphatic system and liver, resulting in a reduction of fat volume in the treated area.

Benefits of Cryolipolysis:

Non-Invasive: Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure, making it an attractive option for individuals who want to reduce localized fat without undergoing surgery.

Minimal Downtime: Unlike surgical procedures, cryolipolysis typically requires little to no downtime. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.

Targeted Fat Reduction: Cryolipolysis allows for precise targeting of specific areas where fat reduction is desired, such as the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and love handles.

Natural-Looking Results: Since the fat reduction is gradual and occurs through the body’s natural processes, the results of cryolipolysis tend to appear more natural than more abrupt methods.

Long-Lasting Results: The destroyed fat cells do not regenerate, providing long-lasting results. However, maintaining a healthy lifestyle is important to prevent the remaining fat cells from enlarging.

Versatility: Cryolipolysis can be used on various body areas, providing versatility in addressing different problem areas for individuals seeking localized fat reduction.

No Anesthesia or Incisions: The procedure is typically performed without the need for anesthesia or incisions, reducing the risks and potential complications associated with surgery.

It’s important to note that while cryolipolysis has been shown to be generally safe and effective, individual results may vary. Consultation with one of our qualified healthcare professionals at Cleveland Health Group is crucial to determine if cryolipolysis is a suitable option based on individual health and cosmetic goals.
