CRYOLIPOLYSIS cold treatmentto Montreal

360° Cryolipolysis is the latest fat freezing technology for cosmetic treatment to eliminate body fat.

 

What is Cryolipolysis?

A real alternative to liposuction, cryolipolysis is a very effective, unique and non-invasive method that melts fat with cold. Quick and painless, cryolipolysis is used to redefine your figure and erase thecellulite! It is ideal for the belly, thelove handleson the hips, buttocks andsaddlebags , thighs and arms.

Cryolipolysis, thanks to a controlled cooling system, gently destroys fat cells   and reduces the subcutaneous fatty layer.

The applicator (handle) is placed on the skin of the area to be treated. The suction cup handle sucks in the bulge and holds it between two cooling panels which will extract heat from the fatty tissue.

The result is not immediate but delayed up to three months after a session, there is a reduction of about 30% in the thickness of the bead. The best results are obtained on patients who have a stable weight and a good diet.

The released lipids will be naturally evacuated by the body's metabolism during the 3 months following the session; regular physical activity will optimize this elimination.

  • Arm

For those who want to remove fat from flabby arms or chin, cryolipolysis can be an effective option. We'll show you how this technique can help you refine these areas.

Commonly Treated Areas

Cryolipolysis is a fat reduction technique that relies on the ability of adipose cells (fat cells) to be more sensitive to cold than other cell types. Here is how cryolipolysis works in detail:

  1. Selection of Area to be Treated: Before treatment, you, with the help of a health or beauty professional, choose the specific area you wish to treat, for example, abdomen, thighs, arms , or other areas where fatty deposits are present.

  2. Application of the Applicator: Once the area is selected, a specific cryolipolysis applicator is placed on the skin. This applicator has a protective membrane to prevent any damage to the skin.

  3. Controlled Cooling: The applicator gradually cools the targeted area to precise, controlled temperatures, typically around -5 to -10 degrees Celsius. This temperature is low enough to selectively damage fat cells while preserving other tissues, such as skin, muscles and nerves, which are less sensitive to cold.

  4. Crystallization of Fat Cells: Fat cells, or adipocytes, are more sensitive to cold than other cells in the body. In response to cooling, lipids (fats) inside adipocytes begin to crystallize, causing damage to the cell membrane.

  5. Inflammation and Elimination: After treatment, your body triggers a natural inflammatory process to eliminate damaged fat cells. The treated fat cells are gradually absorbed by the lymphatic system, then eliminated naturally by the body over several weeks to several months.

  6. Gradual Results: The results of cryolipolysis are not immediately visible, because the process of removing fat cells is gradual. Changes become visible as weeks pass and the body actively eliminates fat.

It is important to note that cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure, meaning it does not involve surgery, incisions, or significant recovery time. In addition, it is generally well tolerated by patients, as it generally does not cause significant pain. However, tightness or tingling sensations may occur during the treatment session, but these are temporary.

How long until you see results?

The time it takes to see results after a cryolipolysis session can vary from person to person, as it depends on several factors, including the area being treated, individual metabolism, and your body's reaction to the treatment. However, here is a generalization of the average time to start seeing results:

  • A few weeks: In the first few weeks after the cryolipolysis session, you may begin to feel subtle changes. Some people notice a slight reduction in swelling or a feeling of firmness in the treated area.

  • 2 to 4 months: Most patients see significant results approximately two to four months after treatment. This is the time it takes for the body to naturally eliminate cold-damaged fat cells.

  • Optimal at 6 months: Optimal results from cryolipolysis are usually achieved around the six-month mark. At this point, the majority of treated fat cells have been eliminated, and you can enjoy a more sculpted and toned figure.

It is essential to note that cryolipolysis offers progressive results, meaning the changes are gradual and natural. Your patience is therefore necessary to fully see the benefits of the procedure. Additionally, some individuals may require multiple cryolipolysis sessions to achieve their fat reduction goals. Your health or beauty professional will be able to give you more precise instructions depending on your particular case during the initial consultation.

Good to know

Side effects: bruises (blue) or local hypoesthesia (decreased sensitivity)

These side effects are mild and transient.

Cryolipolysis is contraindicated for:

Cryolipolysis is generally considered a safe and effective procedure for the reduction of localized fat deposits. However, there are certain contraindications and precautions to consider before undergoing this treatment. It is essential to discuss your eligibility for cryolipolysis with a qualified health or beauty professional during your initial consultation. Here are some of the common contraindications to cryolipolysis:

  1. Severe obesity: Cryolipolysis is designed to treat specific areas of localized fat. It is not generally recommended for obese people requiring significant weight loss.

  2. Pregnancy: Cryolipolysis is not recommended during pregnancy, as its impact on the fetus is not well understood. It is preferable to wait until after childbirth to consider this treatment.

  3. Recent hernias or scars : Areas with recent hernias or scars may not be suitable for cryolipolysis, as this could lead to complications.

  4. Skin diseases: People suffering from certain skin diseases, such as eczema or dermatitis, may not be good candidates for cryolipolysis, as the treatment could aggravate these conditions.

  5. Circulatory disorders: People with circulatory disorders, such as Raynaud's disease, may be at increased risk of complications during treatment.

  6. Allergic reactions to cold: Some people may be sensitive to extreme cold, which could lead to allergic reactions or skin problems during cryolipolysis.

  7. Neurological diseases: People suffering from certain neurological diseases or peripheral neuropathies may be more sensitive to cold sensations during the procedure.

  8. Metallic or electronic implants: If you have metallic or electronic implants in the treatment area, they may react to cooling and cause complications.

  9. Blood clotting disorders: People with blood clotting disorders, such as hemophilia, may be at increased risk of bleeding or bruising.

  10. Known allergic reaction to cryolipolysis equipment: Some individuals may have an allergic reaction to certain components of cryolipolysis equipment. It is important to discuss any known allergies with your aesthetic health care center.
