Cryolipolysis: Fat Freezing
At SculptGlow, we use the most advanced cryolipolysis technology to give you effective elimination of fat cells. Our FDA approved machines offer the newer 360 degree applicators. This not only allows for a gentler vacuum suction but also a more effective result compared to the older technology. You will likely leave our office with little to no bruising or uncomfortable side-effects. However, some areas of the body do bruise more easily.
The applicators are on between 30-40 minutes, depending on the area. You will experience cooling temperatures which crystallize fat cells without damaging the skin and we apply an anti-freeze membrane over your skin to protect it.
If you are sensitive to the cold, your body will numb out after 10 minutes. Most people find this experience very relaxing and choose to listen to music or have the companion of their phone.
This process triggers fat cell apoptosis which then the body's lymphatic and detox systems naturally process the fat and eliminate dead cells. On average, 20%- 25% of fat cells in the treated area are eliminated and the thickness of the fat layer is significantly reduced.
Our applicators allow us to target both small and large areas such as abdomen, flanks, thighs, back and arms. Our machine is uniquely designed to allow up to four areas in one session to be treated. The session begins with an anti- freeze membrane placed onto the target area to protect the skin. The applicator will then be applied to the area which pulls up the fat using a vacuum effect, holding the area in place during the session.
Our 360° applicators use 360° cooling plates to freeze the entire target area, this eliminates up to 50% more fat cells than standard applicators.
Typical daily activities can be resumed after your session, however, we suggest adding support for your lymphatic and detox systems to optimize quicker results. Some patients will experience bruising, much like cupping in Chinese Medicine. We highly recommend going into our hyperbaric oxygen chamber after for lymphatic and detox support or have a lymphatic air compression infrared heat massage and or our red light therapy bed.
Results depend on the individual, fat thickness and area treated. Changes happen over a number of weeks, some patients begin to see noticeable results at around 3 weeks, however, 12 weeks is the estimated time to see the maximum results.
In clinical trials ,12 weeks post treatment, 9 out of 10 people saw an undeniable reduction in the treated area. With our machine, we are able to treat any area 1-2 times over a 12 week period, with an approximate interval of 6 weeks between each session.
To optimize your body sculpting goals, a healthy lifestyle, detox support, blood sugar and hormonal balance is key.
