Cryolipolysis - What is it
Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive body contouring treatment used to reduce fat tissue by freezing.
The method involves application of cooling for the non-invasive, localized reduction of fat deposits, aiming to reshape your body contour. Exposure of fat to cooling causes cell death, without apparent damage to the overlying skin. The method is a safe and effective method for fat reduction up to 30% at specific body sites.
As a medical procedure, cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction.Etymologically, the term cryolipolysis (freezing of fat) is derived from the Greek roots cryo, meaning cold; lipo, meaning fat; and lysis, meaning dissolution or loosening. Cryolipolysis is used in aesthetic clinics and spas with the technology used exclusively in CoolSculpting branded devices. Zeltiq, purchased by Allergan in 2017, is the exclusive licensee to the patents relating to cryolipolysis that are owned by Massachusetts General Hospital.
