WHAT’S NEW IN CRYOLIPOLYSIS
Today, cryolipolysis is a recognised technique and its effectiveness has been widely proven. This technology is the ideal solution for patients who wish to redefine their figure and erase unsightly bulges without resorting to invasive methods such as liposuction.
The importance of the treatment plan
During the preliminary consultation, I systematically lay a multizone treatment plan for my patients according to their
expectations. Cryolipolysis is an effective technique from the very first session. However, I recommend to all my patients to perform a second session to obtain an optimal result. This is because the fat loss on the treated bulge is about 20-25% on average. With a second session, this percentage can reach 35%! Furthermore, people suffering from a serious fat deposit around the tummy and love handle areas should perform several sessions to treat the entire zone. We juxtapose treatment zones between sessions to obtain a harmonious result over the entire treated area. The new treatment zones Cryolipolysis is a booming technique in our clinic. The new “small area” applicator kit allows for the refining and reduction of bulges in areas that are impossible to treat with the standard applicators on the first-generation machines. We obtained excellent results with the A2 and A3 CRISTAL cryolipolysis mini-applicators in men embarrassed by their chest, but reluctant to go through a surgical procedure. These mini-applicators are almost painless in the treatment of pseudo gynecomastia in men compared to the previous generation applicators. Additionally, the specific shape of these mini-applicators allows for treatment of the oval of the face and they can be applied to the double chin and jaws, to define the jaw line, which restores a more masculine look in slightly overweight men. On patients suffering from slightly sagging skin, we will also combine radiofrequency to tighten the skin over the treated area. Finally, with these mini-applicators, we are also able to treat patients around the knee area, arms and bra-folds with good results after 1 or 2 sessions. The evolution of the cryolipolysis technique, which was originally only possible on rather large bulges, now offers refined and accurate solutions for the body and face.
Cryolipolysis has been so successful that several machines have been placed on the market. Therefore, it is crucial that patients choose their practitioner carefully, according to the quality of the medical devices used. In our clinic, we use a French Medical EC approved cryolipolysis device, which guarantees the patient safety and effectiveness with each treatment.
