At the end of the 19th century, in the Nordic countries, riders riding in winter showed a relative melting of the fatty panicle on the upper thighs.
In 2007, at Harvard, 2 researchers developed the therapeutic indication and created the 1st cryolipolysis.
The principle of cryolipolysis is to suck the fatty fold using a suction cup and to cool it enough to destroy the fatty cells without damaging the surrounding tissues.
The cold is created by Peletier elements.
Cryolipolysis is for men and women who have localized excess fat (belly, saddlebags, love handles, etc.).
These bulges are mostly resistant to diets and any physical activity.
To be eligible for cryolipolysis, the fatty fold in the area to be treated must be at least 3 cm.
Cryolipolysis is not a treatment for obesity or overweight.
The applicators, or cryodes, are installed on the area to be treated, respecting the temperature and duration parameters specified in the treatment protocol.
At the beginning of the treatment, the client can feel the suction of the suction cup. Quickly, the cold will anesthetize the area.
During the treatment, the client can rest, read, listen to music or use his computer.
At the end of the treatment, a light massage is applied to revascularize and warm the area.
The results are not visible immediately after the session, because it is necessary to wait for the process of apoptosis to take place and for the fat cells to be eliminated by the body.
After 4 weeks, significant results will be visible, but it will take 8 weeks to see the final results.
Each session reduces the fatty fold of the treated area by 30%.
After 6 weeks, a follow-up visit will determine if an additional session is necessary.
Lipolaser sessions can complete the treatment for an even better result.
