Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis (also called cryolipolysis) is a method of removing local fat deposits without surgery. In cryolipolysis, the subcutaneous fat tissue’s special sensitivity to cold is used and the fat cells are permanently destroyed by local cooling. It acts specifically on the adipose tissue and leaves the skin, nerves, muscles and blood vessels intact. In addition, there are no scars from cuts or punctures. As for the long-term effects of the method, scientific studies have shown that cryolipolysis is a safe and effective fat reduction method with generally manageable, temporary side effects.

Advantages of diode laser hair removal:
The laser machine is very effective against hair on the face and body.
The laser also removes light and white hair on all skin types and complexions.
The treatment is carried out in combination with non-contact cold air.
When is cryolipolysis used?

Cryolipolysis is used in aesthetic dermatology to treat people with small fat deposits:
abdomen
Hips
leg
Knee
upper arms
chin etc
Here, cryolipolysis causes a significant reduction in fat deposits and thus the desired tightening of the body silhouette. However, it is not possible to remove fat deposits on a large scale with cryolipolysis. Cryolipolysis is also not a classic method for weight loss, since the fat tissue is not sucked out like in liposuction, but is dissolved and metabolized in the body.
How does the treatment work?
Cryolipolysis treatment of a problem area takes about an hour. It is also possible to treat two parts of the body at the same time. During the treatment, you lie in a suitable position on a couch next to the cryolipolysis machine. It consists of a base unit, which contains a cooling unit and a vacuum pump, and several differently shaped applicators for different body regions. Each applicator consists of a suction cup with two integrated cooling modules and an electronic control system that regulates the temperature of the cooling modules.

The area to be treated is covered with a protective film soaked in antifreeze before the applicator is attached. The fat storage is sucked under vacuum and held in the suction cup between the cooling modules during the treatment. The cooling modules are now cooled down to temperatures as low as -11 °C, reducing the skin temperature to a target temperature of 3 to 5 °C. This temperature is maintained exactly for about an hour.
In the first few minutes, the hypothermia causes severe tingling and burning. Later, the nerve endings are numbed by the cold and the treatment is painless. After the applicator has been removed, the treated area is still bulging and very red. The discharge will subside within a few minutes. Sensitivity returns with a new intense tingling sensation. A short manual massage of the treated area with powerful kneading and circular movements accelerates the normalization of the skin’s feel and contour and supports the effect of cryolipolysis.
The visible effects of cryolipolysis – a noticeable reduction in fat deposits – only appear some time after the treatment. The final result of the treatment can generally be reliably assessed after two to four months. Measurable results are achieved in 86% of those treated; on average, the fat pads shrink by 25% after the treatment.
Side effects of cryolipolysis

After the procedure, you can expect the treated area to be red and swollen for a few days. It is also not uncommon to experience bruising from the suction cup, numbness, itching, localized hypersensitivity and pain. Frostbite is not possible if the procedure is performed correctly. A very rare side effect of cryolipolysis is the growth of structurally altered fatty tissue in the treated area. So far, 16 cases of so-called paradoxical adiposity hyperplasia after cryolipolysis have been described in the medical literature.

Why is cryolipolysis effective against fat deposits?
The effect of cryolipolysis is based on the simple physical effect that body fat “freezes” (crystallizes) at a higher temperature than water. With a temperature of around 3°C, which is maintained in the tissue during the procedure, the water-rich cells of the skin, nerves and muscles remain intact, while the fat crystallizes and irreversibly damages the fat cells. The damaged fat cells initiate a process called programmed cell death (apoptosis). The apoptosis process leads to a controlled inflammatory reaction in which the fat cells are broken down into their component parts and broken down by the cells of the immune system.

This process begins about three days after the treatment and is completed after a few months: the volume of the treated areas has decreased significantly and now contain much less fat.

When should cryolipolysis not be performed?
Certain diseases and the use of certain medications speak against cryolipolysis treatment. These contraindications will be discussed in detail at the consultation.
People with the following indications are not suitable for the cryolipolysis procedure:
Severe obesity
Diseases of adipose tissue
Active cold or pressure sickness (hives)
pregnancy
Areas of skin with open or infected wounds, bleeding, bleeding, impaired peripheral circulation or other skin conditions
Scar tissue or skin conditions such as eczema or dermatitis in the treatment area Other contraindications for B
double chin treatment:
Untreated thyroid or parathyroid disease Diseases of the larynx
Tumors or growths in the neck and neck area.
