COOLSCULPING or in Portuguese known as cryolipolysis is a state-of-the-art technique that aims to eliminate localized fat through controlled cooling and freezing of specific regions. With just one application it is possible to eliminate 20 to 25% of the selected fat. Indicated for those patients who wish to get rid of localized fats and excess adipose tissue and can be applied to different areas of the body such as the belly, and the unwanted love handles. As it is a non-invasive procedure, the patient can return to his daily activities on the same day as the procedure. - Common questions
What is cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis is a modern method of reducing localized fat without having to undergo surgery. It is a machine that promotes the suction of the skin and subcutaneous fat and the freezing of that fat. As a consequence, fat cells die from lack of oxygen during this period. In each hour-long session, 20 to 25% of localized fat is possible.
What happens during the procedure?
The region with localized fat will be sucked by a tip where it will be cooled down to about - 5 degrees for 45 to 60 minutes. The skin is protected from low temperatures by a specific membrane so as not to burn and thus bring total safety to the procedure.
Are there any side effects?
The answer is no! Due to the pressure exerted by the device in the treated region, it is possible that the patient will get red or even bruises in the region, but these signs are temporary and disappear in approximately one week after application.
How is the treatment complete?
Cryolipolysis causes the breakdown of fat molecules, which are eliminated by the body naturally within approximately 2 months after the procedure. After this period, it is possible to assess the need for other sessions in the same region.
What are the contraindications to the use of cryolipolysis?
Pregnant women, obese people, patients who are highly sensitive to the cold, under 18, people with diabetes, and people who have undergone a recent surgical procedure are prohibited from doing the procedure.
