Cryolipolysis is a procedure that involves the non-invasive cooling of body fat to break down fat cells, resulting in a reduction of body fat without damage to other tissues. Ideal candidates have some amounts of stubborn body fat that cannot be easily reduced by diet or exercise.
A vacuum applicator is placed on the skin to bring it into contact with cooling panels. You will feel a cold sensation for a few minutes, as it produces an anesthetic effect. The fat is then cooled for up to an hour. During that time, the process destroys about 20%-25% of the fat cells in the area that’s targeted.

Final results may not show up for a few months, but you may start to see some changes within a few weeks. Essentially, your immune system clears out the dead fat cells slowly over this time.
