You may have heard of the revolutionary fat freezing treatment called Cyrotherapy, also known as Cryolipolysis. At Chique we now have the latest cryolipolysis machine on the market, CryoShape!
Cryolipolysis, commonly known as ‘fat freezing’, is a non-surgical alternative used to reduce specific areas of fat. This proven method of fat reduction has been subject to clinical trials and scientific studies. Approved by the FDA, this simple hour long treatment kills fat cells within the treated area and is most often used for permanent reduction of stubborn fat pockets and general body sculpting.
CryoShape is a great option for targeting excess fat that is hard to shed with diet and exercise. Based on research conducted by Harvard University, this breakthrough “fat freeze” treatment involves exposing fat cells to very low temperatures. Stubborn fat cells are crystallised, destroyed and ultimately removed naturally by your body’s immune system.
Areas around the waist, stomach, inner and outer thighs, back, lower and upper arms, chin, neck, knees, ankles, and chest region are all responsive to treatment. This lunch-time procedure does not require sedation, and allows you to immediately return to normal activity immediately after treatment and, on average, there is a 20 – 25% fat reduction per area, per treatment.
How it works
After the treatment area is selected, a suction applicator applies precisely controlled cooling to a designated problem area for up to 60 minutes. While results vary from patient to patient, there is noticeable improvement with 1 treatment to the affected area, and significant improvements seen within 2-3 treatments. Visible results can be seen after three weeks, and final results usually occur about three months after treatment.
While some may experience short and mild discomfort at the start of the treatment, in most cases there is no pain. Because there is no surgery or needles required, patients can comfortably relax during the procedure. Common sensations experienced during the treatment include suction and coldness, which soon dissipate 5-10 minutes into the procedure. Some patients may experience temporary redness, numbness, slight swelling or mild bruising to the area being treated, but can expect to resume routine activities, such as returning to work or exercise routine immediately after the procedure.
Patients can expect to see visible changes in as little as three weeks after treatment, with the most dramatic results typically occurring between 1–3 months. As your body continues to naturally cleanse injured fat cells from your body, (which lasts for approximately four months after the Cryolipolysis procedure), the fat layer is typically reduced by 20-40 percent. This treatment is best used for spot reduction of fat and is not an appropriate choice for the of treatment for obesity. As long as the patient manages to maintain his or her weight with proper diet and exercise, long-term results and weight loss should remain stable as the fat cells are permanently eliminated. Typically, patients can expect to get excellent results from a single treatment to the designated area, although multiple treatments to the same area do yield enhanced benefits. Subsequent treatments can be performed as early as four weeks after the previous treatment, and more than one area can be treated on the same day, but not during a single session.
Cryolipolysis with CryoShape is a leading choice for anyone not wanting to undergo surgery, but have stubborn weight issues that won’t go away with diet or exercise.
