Zlipo (Cryolipolysis) is a non-invasive procedure that effectively removes the excess fat in specific areas of the body, usually difficult to remove by different conventional methods or with a poor response to traditional diets and exercise. Patients can gradually achieve significant results in the treated areas, modeling the area of application.
Cryolipolysis is the most effective method to remove fat from areas such as abdomen, thighs and gluteus. The objective of Cryolipolysis is to freeze the issue until achieving the destruction of fat cells, facilitating its elimination without damaging the surrounding tissue. It has been shown that fat cells are morevulnerble to cold than neighboring tissue, also stimulating the natural process of at elimination. This effect for several days after the session.
Who can be treated?
Since cryolipolysis does not produce weight loss, patients must only presents localized fat and it is not applicable in evident excess weight patient cases.
- male breasts
- thighs (inside and outside)
- flabby arms
As a completely non-invasive procedure, Crylipolysis offers patients many advantages over other methods of fat reduction. Some of these benefits include
- No rest indicted after treatment
- No anesthesia
- No pain
How it works
Cryolipolysis targets fat deposits and cools them down in a controlled manner over a prolonged period (usually 60 minutes).
The targeted removal of energy by means of a cold treatment causes the apoptosis of the fat cells. This ultimately leads to their destruction. The complete breakdown and removal of fat cells the natural way through the lymphatic system takes about 10–12 weeks. Since the surrounding tissue does not respond to the cold treatment in the same way as fatty tissue, the treatment is considered safe, gentle and non-invasive. To avoid damage to the skin, a special fleece is placed on the treatment area during treatment.
The results of the Cryolipolysis procedure are visible two/three months after treatment and continue to improve for up to six months. Although these results are not as fast as the ones obtained through liposuction, patients undergoing Cryolipolysis do not have the pain, risk and prolonged recovery periods associated with reductive surgery or invasive procedures.
Most patient who undergo Cryolipolysis are very satisfied with the results obtained and are able to enjoy a reduction in body volume
