Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis is a technique that cools adipose tissue to induce lipolysis, i.e. adipocyte breakdown. Cryolipolysis only destroys fat cells since these are more sensitive to cold than the body’s other cells. Fat is therefore eliminated without damaging the surrounding skin, muscles and nerves.
We carry out cryolipolysis using Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting device, which is the only medical device for this procedure.

Purpose of cryolipolysis

The CoolSculpting® procedure involves placing a specially designed cooling applicator on the treatment area to extract energy (cooling) from the underlying adipose tissue, without damaging other tissue. The suction applicator uses vacuum pressure to suck up tissue between the cooling panels.
CoolSculpting treats areas such as the chin, double chin, torso, under the arms, love handles, paunch, saddlebags and inner thighs.

Tip
To be as effective as possible, CoolSculpting sessions should be combined with a balanced diet and regular sport.

Benefits of cryolipolysis

This non-invasive technique provides an alternative to liposuction for patients who wish to avoid the inherent risks and recovery period of surgical procedures.
The advantage of this non-invasive CoolSculpting method is that you can resume your activities immediately.

Expected outcome of cryolipolysis

The initial results are seen after 1 month and – depending on your profile – are optimal after 2-3 months.

ADDED EXTRA

Next Motion is an application that enables doctors to create, edit and share perfectly standardized, comparable dynamic ‘before/after’ videos in less than a minute.

The CSMCE has chosen this innovative technology, enabling completely transparent progress in patient care and fostering a trusting relationship with practitioners.

Useful information

Before the intervention

  • An initial medico-surgical consultation is first arranged to:
    • Ascertain any allergies you may have.
    • Establish the treatment area(s).
    • Draw up a quote specifying the price and number of sessions.
  • Pre-treatment photographs are taken from various angles.
  • By palpating your rolls of fat, we can confirm your treatment options and choose the right applicators to obtain the best result.

Day of the intervention

  • A protective film is applied to the skin.
  • The applicator is placed on the treatment area.
  • Suction is carried out, which is slightly unpleasant for 5 minutes before the cold transmitted by the device completely attenuates any sensation.
  • You are in a comfortable position throughout the treatment.
  • You have the opportunity to read, consult your emails or watch a video.
  • You will be offered a drink.

After the intervention

  • The applicator is removed and the treated area remains frozen for a few minutes.
  • The treated area is then drained using a Cellu M6 device.
  • You can resume normal activity.
  • Avoid long journeys that involve using the treated area.
  • Medical check-up.
  • Photographs will be taken from various angles to view the before/after results during your check-up.
