CRYOLIPOLYSIS TO REDUCE FAT ROLLS
The principle is as follows: by cooling our fat cells – the adipocytes – below 0°C, we trigger an apoptosis phenomenon, i.e. their death. The technique does not make you lose weight, but it can be used to treat very localised areas such as the saddlebags, the stomach, the love handles, the arms, the neck, the thighs, etc. IN THE DOCTOR’S ROOMS. The area to be treated is sucked up by vacuum with an applicator before being cooled. The first device of its kind – Coolsculpting – was introduced to doctors about ten years ago. It was the first machine on the French market to be approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which imposes strict standards and rigorous clinical studies. Machines with medical CE certification such as Cristal, by Deleo (made in France) gradually appeared, and Cryo Slimming 3D. The promise? To lose between 25 and 30% of fat tissue per session.
