What does it involve?

The result is visible after one to two months, the time it takes for the fat released by the cold attacked fat cells to be naturally eliminated by the lymphatic system. In addition to the reduction of the area, the action of cold also leads to a tightening of the skin and a decrease in cellulite. After the treatment, the body will continue to eliminate fat cells for some time.
Cryolipolysis cannot replace a diet, it only treats excess fat on the stomach, hips, thighs, saddlebags, back and buttocks…
A balanced diet helps to maintain lasting results after treatment. This treatment is of course valid for both men and women.
A session lasts between one to three hours depending on the number of areas treated.
The scientific principle of cryolipolysis has been discovered by world-renowned dermatologists affiliated with Harvard Medical School in the United States. Cryolipolysis cools fat cells non-invasively to induce lipolysis (the destruction of fat cells, adypocites) without causing damage to adjacent tissues.


After the treatment

Numbness in the treated area may last several weeks after treatment, and pain may occur in one or two out of 10 cases. It should be recalled that in a minority of patients, Cryolipolysis is accompanied by moderate pain, which constitutes a significant discomfort in everyday life.
Sometimes (less than one in 100 cases) severe pain is observed, which can prevent the continuation of current or professional activities (especially those involving painful movements or uncomfortable posture) for a few days. In very rare cases (less than one in 1000 cases) patients have been hospitalized for effective treatment of pain due to its intensity or duration.
