The working principle of cryolipolysis


Fat is more sensitive to cold than other tissues

The lipids contained in the fat cells crystallize at lower temperatures than other water-containing cells. As a result, fat cells are treated specifically by cryolipolysis. The other tissues such as muscles, nerves and skin are not damaged during cryolipolysis.

The apoptosis of the fat cells (cell death) releases cytokines and other inflammatory mediators. 1-2 months after application, the affected fat cells are gradually broken down. Lipids are slowly released from fat cells and carried away by the lymphatic system for processing. Since the lipids go through a gradual breakdown process, no dangerous changes can be observed in the liver function and blood lipids.

How cryolipolysis works:


Unlike liposuction, cryolipolysis is done without surgery! Adipose tissue is more susceptible to cold than the surrounding tissue. A special handpiece is attached to the problem area and sucks in the fatty tissue using a controlled vacuum. The cooling plates in the handpiece draw energy from the fat tissue underneath. A cold protection membrane protects the skin, muscles, nerves and surrounding tissue. Controlled cell death (apoptosis) is triggered in the cooled fat cells.

What happens to the fat cells afterwards?


The crystallized fat cells are slowly broken down and eliminated via the lymphatic system.  This achieves a reduction in fat or circumference. You can support this process with a lot of exercise and a lymphatic drainage treatment.
