What is Cryo Body Sculpting and Does it Work?

Published on: August 17, 2018

Everyone wishes they could lose a few unwanted inches in difficult areas. Exercise and diet are of course the best course of action to get the body you want, however, some want to see those results in less time. Cryo Body Sculpting is an option that many people are finding more and more desirable.

Cryo body sculpting, or controlled cold lipolysis, is a non-invasive technique which freezes the fat in an isolated area while not damaging tissues in the surrounding area. The fat that is frozen will eventually decay and be flushed from the body naturally. It can be used on various areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, and even under the chin.

The procedure requires a suction device that then reduces the temperature of the skin. Cryo body scuplting sessions are usually 49 minutes to hour in length. Patients report some local discomfort during the treatment, but then eventually feel numbness. 

Patience is required when choosing this treatment. While some patients may see small immediate results, long term results won’t be noticed for 8-12 weeks while the body’s lymphatic system is ridding itself of the dead fat cells. Many choose to do multiple treatments to get the desired result. This procedure does not really cause weight loss, but does offer a more sculpted appearance in the treated areas. While this is a longterm solution to fat loss, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine is required to keep from gaining inches back.

Many boutiques offer cryo-sculpting treatments. Results vary, and often depend on skin elasticity and the amount of fat to be removed. Talk to an aesthetician to see if Cryo Body Sculpting is a good option for your body type.
