Fat reduction by Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolysis is a method makes use of cold to diminish fat cells in the body, thus improving the body’s contour. It allows a significant reduction in fat without the trauma of invasive procedures such as liposuction, and without risk of affecting surrounding tissues such as ultrasound or laser lipolysis.

How does Cryolipolysis technology work


Cryolipolysis technology of the LipoCryo® is based on a physical phenomenon well documented (Peltier effect) : a shell-shaped applicator "sucks" (vacuum) fold fat is going to stay at the bottom of the shell and a mechanism similar to a "heat pump" will retrieve the zone and lower the calories in a few minutes the temperature of this zone from 37 ° to a temperature of 7 degrees.

The exposure to cooling is set so that it causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without apparent damage to the overlying skin.

Cryolipolysis allows - in some cases - when it comes to very specific areas to avoid a small liposuction or laser lipolisis.

LipoContrast DUO® is indicated against local adiposities : the ideal candidate is not the obese patient with general adiposity, but the one who wants to reduce local fat concentrated for instance on abdomen, flanks, lower back, arms…
These are generally patients (male and female) with a Body Mass Index (BMI or in French IMC) nearly normal with a very localized fat overload. Cryolipolyse indications

Cryolipolysis can not replace a diet as part of a proven obesity.

How the cryolipolysis session is conducted ?

The doctor is positioning on the target area a transducer that combines :
- the vacuum to capture the subcutaneous fat
- the cryo-selective cooling of the tissues.

The procedure is painless for patients, they feel a slight tension around the treated area due to the vacuum effect, and a feeling of intense cold, especially at the beginning of the procedure.

According to the extension of the treatment area, it may be more than one application to cover the entire area.
For example, we will need two sessions to the abdominal area, 1 for each love handles, and 2 for the lower back.
Each applicaton will last between 20 and 30 min, depending on the thickness of adipose tissue.

Potential counter-indications of Cryolipolysis

- Aside from pregnancy, which is always counter-indicated as a matter of principle
- Raynaud disease
- Arteritis of the inferior limb
- Crioglobulinémie
- Area with inflammation, injury, dermatitis, circulatory problems, cold urticaria
- Umbilical and inguinal hernia

After treatment of Cryolipolysis

Cryolipolyse résultats Cryolipolyse résultats

- Usually : Redness and numbness on the treated zone that can last a couple of hours after the session. - Exceptionally : slight hematoma that will resorb within a few day.
The patient can incorporate to normal activity without especial discomfort immediately after the session.
You may resume your normal daily activities immediately after the session, even sports activities.

Depending on the depth of adipose tissue and the desired reduction, it will generally be between 1 and 3 sessions
40% des résultats de la séance seront visibles dès 15 jours, mais il est nécessaire d’attendre au moins 6 semaines pour voir concrètement les résultats et de décider si vous avez besoin, ou non, d’une autre séance.

Le cost of cryolipolysis

Your first appointment will be a medical consultation and will be invoiced 45 € TTC.
From 268€,it depends on the number of applications of the handpiece necessary to cover all the areas selected.
The number of sessions varies from one to three sessions.
Potential care of several areas in a single session reduces the cost of treatment.
