What Is Cryolipolysis

New slimming method

In the past, people who wanted to lose weight could only choose to be traditional liposuction. The process was painful and risky.  However, now a research team in the United States has found that excess fat can be removed by freezing.  But doctors stressed that freezing can only eliminate local fat.

What is Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis: frozen fat-dissolving device is placed on the surface of the human skin so that the subcutaneous tissue is cooled to 5 ° C, the fat cells are prematurely aged, and die successively, and excreted through the metabolism to achieve the effect of slimming. The innovative machine from the United States for weight loss is called "Zeltiq", developed by researchers at Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, and introduced to the Chinese market by PRT in 2012. It has passed the FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) and CE (European Safety Certification Mark) certification, is a new weight loss technology, has been widely used in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other countries.


Weight loss process

 First of all, the scope of fat dissolving is defined on the abdomen or waist side. The frozen fat dissolving instrument is attached to the skin surface, and the subcutaneous tissue is cooled to 5℃, and the adipose tissue is destroyed after one hour. The Triglyceride, the main component of adipocytes, will be aged ahead of time, and adipocytes will gradually die. After two or three months, the necrotic adipocytes will be discharged with the metabolism of the human body to achieve the body shaping effect.

Suitable for the crowd

 U.S. experts emphasize that frozen fat dissolving is only applicable to partial weight loss and cannot be applied to the whole body, such as waist and abdomen excrescence. It is difficult to get rid of excess fat. This instrument is very effective, but it is not applicable to obese and overweight people. It is only applicable to those who eat reasonably and exercise regularly but still cannot get rid of partial excrescence.

Distinguishing from Traditional Weight Loss

Scope of application: It is only applicable to the excrescence of the waist and abdomen, not to other parts of the body.

Safety: no medicine, no anesthesia, no operation, no trauma.

Pain: The first contact with the lipolytic instrument will give you an uncomfortable feeling of freezing, but it will soon disappear.

Effective period: the dead cells are completely discharged after 2 to 3 months, thus achieving the effect of slimming and shaping.

Recovery period: there is no recovery period; other activities can be carried out after completion.

Caution: After freezing and dissolving fat, make reasonable arrangements for diet and exercise to maintain body shape.

Security: "Cryolipolysis" will not cause long-term or obvious side effects. Since the freezing effect will only be directed at the fat layer, it will not frostbite the viscera or hurt the skin.

Matters needing attention

The course of frozen lipolysis is completely non-invasive and has no wound. It is relatively safe and requires no special postoperative rehabilitation. However, the following matters should be paid attention to before and after the operation to ensure safety and effectiveness.

Controlling the temperature of the frozen fat dissolving instrument

 Adipose cells have a lower tolerance to low temperature than skin. 5℃ is enough to make adipocytes necrotic, but it will not do much damage to the skin.  However, if the temperature is lower than 4 C, skin damage will occur.  Therefore, the temperature of the frozen fat dissolving instrument must be well controlled and cannot be too low.


 Not suitable for patients with liver dysfunction

 At present, other possible risks of the frozen weight-loss method are uncertain, but some plastic surgeons point out that a large number of necrotic adipocytes naturally metabolized by the human body are a serious burden on the liver, and people with liver problems had better not try this method.


 Women Avoid Special Physiological Periods

 Frozen dissolve fat to lose weight is not suitable for women during menstruation, pregnancy, and lactation, especially for abdominal frozen fat dissolving, which is easy to aggravate cold womb, affect menstrual blood circulation, lead to dysmenorrhea or affect fetal health.
