Starting Theory

  • When babies suck on cold dummies for too long they lose fat from their cheeks
  • Butter (fat) hardens / freezes much more quickly than skin or anything else.
  • Freezing the fat doesn't take too long (30min each area)
  • Once the fat cells are frozen, apoptosis occurs.

Liposhock Procedure

  • is sucArea to be treated ked into the hand piece.
  • A cycle of intense -20°C begins
  • Subcutaneous fat cells in the area are frozen to -20°C.
  • Overlying skin is not damaged as a protective membrane is placed on the skin.
  • Cooled fat cells begin a process called apoptosis.
  • Fat cells are destroyed and excreted from the body by natural mechanisms.
  • Every fat freezing procedure may take upto 90days to get rid off the apoptotic cells.

The Science

  • Cryo = cold, lipo = fat, lysis = breakdown, is a Greek medical term which pterally means fat breakdown through cold.
  • Research has shown that fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than surrounding tissue.
  • Using advanced cooling (cryo) technology, the device safely targets the fat layer and slowly crystalpzes the fat cell contents.
  • This process causes the breakdown (lysis) of the cells. During the following two months, the melted fat is gradually eliminated via natural metabolic processes.

The Indication

  • For small to moderately full fat bulges resistant to diet and exercise.
  • The procedure is considered safe for all skin types.
  • However, on treating the darkest skin types caution must be taken because skin is naturally more cold sensitive.

The Treatment

  • There is an initial intense cold feeling which gradually disappears because of the cold's numbing effect.
  • Normally there is no discomfort post procedure. Thin patients may experience a tingling sensation for about two weeks afterwards.
  • Results are visible within two months.
  • Depending on the initial thickness of the fat pad, more than one treatment can be performed.
  • Because there are no needles, no injections and no drugs involved, there is no aftercare. Patients may drive home and resume all activities.

How many treatments? How often?

  • The treatments are performed 2 times per area spaced 3 months apart
  • Lipo Freezing can be associated to complementary treatments (cavitation, radiofrequency)
