How to choose the right cryolipolysis treatment?


A new body contouring technique in a booming industry, Cryolipolysis is a non-chirurgical alternative that is reproducible and allows reduction of fatty folds.

The development of this technology has also been noticed by beauty institutes offering attractive prices for the sessions.
However, its’ important to differentiate the service on offer between the different beauty institutes. It’s clear that only medical practices hold the expertise and experience to offer the best quality of service.

What is Cryolipolysis?

A refrigerating suction device sucks a fatty fold, then exposes it to a temperature of -8C° to -10C° during 60 to 70mns. 25 to 30% of the Adipocytes are destroyed by Apoptose (Natural
destruction of cells). The cell elemination is done through the lymphatic system, the conventional mean of the evacuation of dead cells. 2 to 3 months are necessary to obtain the final result.

Choose your beauty centre wisely

Beauty treatments offered by some institutes can be limited by their equipment that may fail to meet CE medical standards, where their lack of performance prevent a sufficient cooling effect on the fat cells to be able to permanently destroy them. Burns can also be observed and despite numerous sessions clients fail to achieve their goal. As indicated by the HAS (Haute Authorité Française) report in May 2018 it’s vital to use a recognised Medical Aesthetic Centre where the practitioner is qualified and has been trained to perform the treatment as well as identify possible contraindications as well as check that they use CE Medically approved Cryolipolysis machines with the CE Logo. The practitioner will observe the elasticity of the skin, the
thickness of the adipose panniculus and will assess if the Cryolipolysis treatment is justified.

Who can benefit from Cryolipolysis?

This type of treatment benefits patients who have localised excess fat and wish to avoid surgery such as Liposuction. Cryolipolysis does not treat excess weight or obesity.

How to optimise the treatment?
Results are greater with patients who practice regular physical exercises and adopt healthy eating habits. Being personally involved in “the Raid Amazon and the Finland
Trophy”, I know that regular sporting activity enhance the Cryolipolysis effects and provides a sustained sculpted body.
