Cryo-lipolysis ( lipo freeze ) is a proven non-invasive cosmetic procedure, using ice technology that results in localised fat reduction. The technology behind cryo-lipolysis, was designed and developed by dermatologists at harvard medical school, which revealed that fat cells are more responsive to the effects of cold in contrast to the surrounding tissue. Fat cells crystallise at lower temperatures than skin, muscle and nerve cells.
Each of us has a number of fat cells, which stop reproducing once we reach puberty.
Cryolipolysis® is non-invasively cooling, and thereby removing these fat cells by mediated lysis (demise), without damaging nerves or any other tissues. This is possible because our body reacts differently to cooling temperatures, therefore lipids and fats crystalize faster than normal cells. These cells are then eliminated naturally via our body’s own metabolic system. Unlike surgery, results are discrete and natural, occurring over several weeks as the fat cells weaken and die.
