Local fat, which is not treated with diet or physical activity, is a problem that many are concerned about. To treat local fat we use cryolipolysis and mesotherapy in which we inject special fat-soluble substances.

Cryolipolysis

What is cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive method that causes permanent local fat loss and is FDA-approved (Food and Drug Administration). Researches mention that when an adipose tissue cell (adipocyte) is subjected to strong cooling for a certain time a biological death occurs (apoptosis). Then all destroyed lipocytes are eliminated by using the normal body’s functions through the lymphatic system.

What is the process of the treatment?

After a measurement with a special device and a careful planning of the treated area, we apply the heads of the CLATUU machine. The adipose tissue is isolated and brought under pressure into a cold treatment chamber. Very high cooling (up to -9°C) is achieved without affecting the surrounding tissues. The heads remain active for an hour and then they are removed.

What do I feel? What does my skin look like after the treatment?

You will feel intense pull, numbness, mild pain or cramps on the treated area. These symptoms will subside after the first 5 minutes. After the end of the treatment the area will feel hard, very red or even bruised, swollen and sensitive. A massage is applied for approximately 5 minutes since it’s been proved to improve the final result of the treatment.

What will my skin look like and how will I feel over the next few days?

During the following days, the treated area may continue to be red or even bruised, swollen and sensitive. These symptoms can last 2-3 weeks with a gradual improvement. In some cases, there may be hypoesthesia, numbness or mild pain like after intense exercise which can last up to 3-4 weeks.

What should I be careful of during the following days?

We should avoid intense exercise and the use of sauna for only a week. We strongly advise our patients to have some kind of exercise like mild exercise or walking and to drink approximately 2 1/2 lt of water daily.

When are the results of cryolipolysis visible?

The final result is complete and visible after 3 months. In the meantime, the patient should keep their weight stable.

To which areas is it applied?

• Abdomen.
• Buttocks.
• Thighs (inside and outside surfaces).
• Knees.
• Back.
• Arms.

Who is the ideal candidate for cryolipolysis?

People of normal body weight or slightly overweight with identified local fat.
*Attention, cryolipolysis is not a dieting method and is not indicated to overweight people.

In which cases is cryolipolysis contraindicated?

The cryolipolysis treatment is contraindicated to:

• Cryo-hemoglobinemia.
• Paroxysmal cryo-haemoglobinuria.
• Pregnancy or lactation.
• Known sensitivity to cold, like urticaria (hives) from cold or Raynaud syndrome.
• Peripheral circulation disorder in the treated area.
• Neuropathic disorders, like postherpetic neuralgia or diabetic neuropathy.
• Sensation disorders.
• Open or infected wounds.
• Blood disorder or constant use of anticoagulants (blood thinners).
• Recent surgery or scar tissue in the treated area.
• Hernia close to the treated area.
• Skin disorder like eczema, dermatitis or rash in the treated area.
• Active implant devices like pacemakers or defibrillators.

Which treatments can it be combined with?

It is combined with mesotherapy to get rid of local fat and cellulite as well as with RF.

Fat-soluble substances

These are substances that dissolve the local fat. Phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid are older substances while biomimetic peptides are new ones.

How is the treatment applied?

With the mesotherapy technique, the substances are deeply injected into the fat, about 12 mm, using fine needles. After the infusion, we gently massage the area.

How does the skin look after?

There is slight redness, swelling and pain, which depending on the type of substance being injected, lasts 4-20 days.

How often is the treatment repeated?

Injections of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid are repeated each month for 3-4 sessions, while injections of biomimetic peptides every 15 days for 4 sessions. Injections of phosphatidylcholine cause enough edema and ‘’a feeling of weight’’ that lasts up to 3 weeks, most patients prefer biomimetic peptide treatment, mainly for the face (double-sag).

Are there contraindications?

• People with an allergy to fat soluble substances.
• People who take anticoagulants or anti-inflammatory drugs.
