What is it?
LipoCryo is a new, non-invasive technology that combines vacuum and specifically controlled-cooling technology to reduce localized fat bulges.
The treatment feeling is one of a firm pull - to ensure the targeted fat tissue is cooled effectively.
Fat cells are specifically targeted without any damage to the adjacent tissues.
What happens during the treatment?
A handpiece is positioned on the treatment area. Vacuum and a controlled cooling targets and cools fat cells. Over the next two to four months, the crystallized fat cells break down and are naturally eliminated from your body.
How many sessions will I need?
Depending on the fat tissue thickness and the desired reduction, you may need 1 to 3 sessions. Ideally the interval between treatment sessions is about 45 days.
What will the results be and when will I see the results?
Depending on the initial adipose tissue thickness, the average percentage fat loss will be 20%. Some result will be visible at 15 days, but you will have to wait 6 weeks as a minimum to appreciate the main results. You may discuss with your doctor a treatment plan that fits you best.
How long is the treatment?
Depending on the size of the treated area, it may be necessary to perform more than one application to cover the whole area. For instance, we will need 2 applications for the abdominal area, 1 for each "love handle", and 2 for the lower back. Each application will last anywhere from 20 to 30 mins, depending on your fat tissue thickness. Therefore, depending on the size of the treatment area and the fat tissue thickness, the treatment session can last from 20 to 180 min.
Who is the ideal candidate for LipoCryo procedure?
LipoCryo is specially indicated for localized fat bulges. The ideal candidate is not an obese patient but one who is generally fit; but wants to reduce specific local fat bulges concentrated for instance on the abdomen, flanks, lower back or arms.
What does it feel like during and after the session?
The procedure is not painful. You will feel a firm pressure close to the treated area due to the vacuum effect and an intense cold, mainly at the beginning of the procedure.
After the session, usually some redness and numbness will be felt on the treated area. This will usually last a couple of hours after the session. You may resume normal activity immediately after the treatment session.
Are the results definitive?
The fat cells treated with the LipoCryo procedure will be eliminated by your body's natural metabolism. With regular exercise and your normal diet, your long-term results should remain sustainable.
Vacuum and controlled cooling targets fat cells
Fat cells are eliminated naturally from the body
The consequence is a decrease of the fat layer
