Fat Freezing (cryolipolysis) uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells. Cold does not damage other cells in the way it does fat cells, and so there should be no damage to the skin or underlying tissue. A 2009 study of cryolipolysis' clinical efficiency found that the treated fat layer was reduced by as much as 25%. The results were still present six months after the treatment. Frozen, dead cells are excreted out of the body through the lymphatic system within several weeks of treatment, revealing full results of fat loss within three months. Sessions vary from client to client, at minimum two sessions are recommended.
Some possible side effects include:
In very rare cases, can lead to an increase in the volume of fat cells in treated body parts. It’s not known why this happens, but it appears to be more common in men than women. It’s seen in less than 1% of cases.
