If you have questions about Cryolipolysis, we're here to help. Below are the answers to some common queries.
The Cryolipolysis fat-reduction procedure is specially designed for those who have unwanted fat in targeted areas. Unlike weight-loss surgery (e.g. gastric bypass), this procedure is not a weight-loss solution for people who are obese. Good candidates for this procedure have noticeable bulges in certain areas they’d like to get rid of. Many people want a non-surgical alternative to liposuction.
Your first step should be to speak to a physician to see if it is a suitable procedure for you.
The procedure is not for everyone. You should not have the Cryolipolisis procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinaemia, cold agglutinin disease, or paroxysmal cold haemoglobinuria. This procedure is not a treatment for obesity. As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the procedure is right for you.
The procedure can treat visible fat bulges in the submental area (under the chin), thigh, abdomen and flank (love handle), along with bra fat, back fat, underneath the buttocks (also known as banana roll), and upper arm. Your physician will create a customised treatment plan that’s tailored to your body and your individual goals.
Yes, the procedure can treat visible fat bulges under the chin. Freezing away fat from a double chin is as tolerable as using the procedure in other parts of the body (e.g., abdomen, flank/side, thighs). With this treatment for a double chin, patients may see results after just 2 visits.
Once the treated fat cells are crystallised (frozen), they are destroyed and are naturally processed and eliminated from the body. Once the treated fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Check out the How it Works page to learn more.
As a leading non-invasive fat-reduction treatment worldwide, this procedure has a well-established safety and efficacy profile. This process must controlled cooling devices designed with built-in safety measures. If sensors detect that the skin is getting too cold, the system will shut down automatically.
