What You Need to Know About Cryolipolysis

The popularity of Cryolipolysis, also known as fat-freezing treatment, is on the rise among those seeking a method that aims to get rid of stubborn fat in certain parts of your body.  Here are the top things you need to know about Cryolipolysis treatment available at MovMore Dublin.

Is Cryolipolysis treatment safe?

The procedure involves controlled freezing of fat cells, causing them to gradually break down and thus shaping the treated area. The process is generally a safe, low-risk procedure and triggers natural elimination, without the need for medication or anesthesia. It's suitable for various regions, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, double chin, and back.

Who is a good candidate for Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis also offers benefits to individuals who have already lost a significant amount of weight and inches through diet intervention and exercise, yet still have fat accumulation in specific areas of the body. While weight loss helps reduce these cells, it doesn't eliminate them. 

With the treatment, these cells will be frozen and eliminated, providing a more defined body contour. The fat cells die and aren't replaced, but it's essential to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen. If the patient gains weight, the remaining cells in the area might enlarge, causing a return to previous measurements.

When will I see the results?

It's important to know that the results aren't immediate! The procedure triggers the death of fat cells, which are eliminated by the body itself, and it can take up to 3 months for the final outcome of the treatment to be seen.

How does it work?

The procedure itself is quite simple. The professional will clean the application area, position the device along with gel pads to protect the skin from the low temperature, and this device will apply a vacuum to draw the fat between cooling panels. The session duration will vary based on the treated area, but it can last from 30 minutes to 1 hour. Patients might feel cold and a sensation of pressure during the procedure, but most commonly, they report that the discomfort is manageable.

How to prepare and what to expect?

To undergo the treatment, it's important for the patient to have a consultation with one of our specialised professionals. This is to align goals, determine the areas to be treated, and review medical history in order to ascertain if Cryolipolysis is appropriate for you. Additionally, the number of sessions required to achieve the goal will be defined during this consultation.

What to expect during your first Cryolipolysis treatment?

After the removal of the applicator, the treated area can be gently massaged to enhance the breakdown of fat cells, and the patient can be released to resume their regular activities. It's important to remember that this isn't an invasive procedure and the results gradually appear over time, reducing fat thickness and providing improved body definition.
