What is Cryolipolysis?

Cold lipolysis is the process of breaking down regional oils by freezing them at low temperature. Fats, which lose their function after being broken down, are removed from the body in time by the lymphatic system, and in this way, successful and permanent results are obtained in the treated area.

The procedure that provides an average of 20% fat loss in the area where it is applied is a non-surgical regional thinning method.

Everything You Need To Know About Cryolipolysis

In cold lipolysis application, payment is made per session or pad. In the process that can be applied to more than one region at the same time, the number and width of regions affect the price. The main factor in the price, which determines the province, district and district where the clinic is located, is the brand of the cold lipolysis device.

While the session / pad fee is 600 TL in the process performed with an ordinary device using the technology of freezing fat, it can be up to $ 700 in cold lipolysis applications with the FDA approved CoolSculpting system.
Fat areas selected to be determined by detailed body analysis and treated are carefully marked. After the marked areas are covered with a special gel, they are covered with antifreeze protective pads.

Then, the application is started by choosing a special head with a size and shape suitable for the region. The heads that take the marked area by vacuuming start the cooling process and freeze the subcutaneous fat tissue at a temperature of -5 to -8 degrees for about 1 hour. A slight burning is felt for the first few minutes when the area is exposed to cold. In the remaining time, the area is completely numb, so no pain is felt. After the procedure is over, massage is applied to the area to accelerate the circulation and the patient can return to his home and daily life immediately.
Any woman and man who cannot solve the problem of regional fat in their body with regular nutrition and exercise programs can have cold lipolysis if it is medically appropriate.
Cold lipolysis is not applied in case of the following situations:
  • Pregnancy
  • Severe chronic diseases (diabetes, liver or kidney failure, etc.)
  • Cold allergy
  • Heart failure
  • Diseases affecting the immunity
  • Obesity and excess fat
  • Open wounds in the area not yet closed
Cold lipolysis is an effective application that provides regional thinning. Where mainly regional lubrication takes place:

  • Abdomen
  • Basen
  • Leg
  • Back
  • Jowl
  • Arm
  • Waist circumference
  • Hip
It is applied to such areas.
Since cold lipolysis is a non-surgical, completely external aesthetic intervention, the patient can return to his daily life immediately after the procedure. Depending on the cold application in the area, there may be a feeling of numbness for up to 10 days and this is completely temporary.
After cold lipolysis breaks down the fats by freezing, the process of removing these unused fats from the body is done by the lymphatic system of the human body. Ideal water consumption is very important for the regular operation of the system. If you drink 8-10 glasses of water daily as recommended, the results of the procedure will be seen more clearly. However, if the procedure is supported with a healthy nutrition program, the expected thinning in the area may be more.
It takes about 2-4 months for the fats broken down by cold lipolysis to be removed from the body. At the end of this period, an average of 20% of the oils in the treated area are permanently removed. The expected thinning in the treated areas is between 1-4 cm. The satisfaction rate after application is over 80%.
Cold lipolysis can be applied to more than one region at a time and is a method that often provides a solution for each region in one session. The sessions last between 45-60 minutes depending on the width of the region.

In cases where the result is not found sufficient, a new session may be required. 4-6 weeks are required for the second session of cold lipolysis to the same area.
