Everything You Need to Know About Cryolipolysis

Finding quick and safe solutions for removing fat and improving one’s body shape can be difficult nowadays, especially considering how dangerous and complicated fat removing procedures can be.

What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical procedure that freezes fat as a means to contour the body. This is one of the most popular non-surgical procedures in the world because of how easy it is for those undergoing the procedure and how affordable it can be in comparison to surgeries.

Cryolipolysis done by Cyrosculptor is a non-invasive, natural fat elimination technique that makes use of freezing temperatures to sculpt the body and reduce fat.

How Does it Work?

Clients are first required to undergo a consultation session, in which the process is explained, and any relevant questions about the procedure are addressed. After this session, it is the client’s decision on whether they would like to proceed with the cryolipolysis. Before the treatment starts, the position of the applicator needs to be marked on the body as this would determine where the fat freezing and subsequent body contouring will take place.

The skin is then gently sucked between two cooling plates, and this is when the freezing process begins. This natural process involves controlled freezing, which freezes the fat cells of the body until they have crystallised. The fat cells start to crystallise at around -5 to -10 degrees Celsius. Once the fat cells have crystallised, the body naturally disposes of and decomposes the fat in the weeks following the procedure through the kidney and urine.

The freezing process takes between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the number of zones identified for the procedure. Main areas of concern that clients bring for processing include the stomach, thighs and legs.

Why is Cryolipolysis Better than Other Surgical Treatments?

Surgical treatments, like liposuction, are riskier surgeries that are not suitable for simple body contouring procedures. While cryolipolysis does not have as noticeable an effect as fat reduction surgeries, it is the perfect option for those looking to contour their naturally and conveniently. Cryolipolysis by Cryosculptor provides you with a comfortable procedure that is not time-consuming and does not have harsh side effects or a long recovery time.

Faster Results

Fat reduction surgeries usually provide immediate results, but their recovery times are so long that you would have to wait before you get to enjoy the results. On the other hand, the cryolipolysis procedure is done in one session, and your body is contoured within a few weeks in a very natural way – where the fat is expelled by the kidney and in your urine.

Fewer Side Effects

Unlike surgeries, you are much less likely to face any adverse side effects from cryolipolysis. The process is entirely natural and allows your body’s frozen fat cells to decompose more naturally. The technique allows for your body to be contoured without having to get your fat removed from incisions that result in large stitches and surgery scars.

Less Complicated

Surgeries are very complicated and difficult to understand for laypersons. They require advanced medical knowledge and trying to understand the complex terminology that may put those undergoing surgery under distress. On the other hand, one of the many benefits of cryolipolysis is that it is a straightforward procedure that can be understood by anyone wanting to undergo the procedure. This benefit allows for cryolipolysis experts to explain the process clearly to their clients before they commit to the procedure, giving them enough information to make a proper decision.

More Affordable

Surgical procedures can be very costly, and most insurance companies may not even cover cosmetic surgeries and fat reduction procedures. Cryolipolysis is the perfect alternative as it is affordable and does not take up too much time. You can complete your body contouring within a single session, and there is no expensive recovery or hospitalisation required. The fat from your body will be expelled naturally, so you do not have to buy any costly medication to handle the pain that usually accompanies surgical procedures.


Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure that is natural and does not require any incisions or scans to be made of the body. A simple applicator is positioned on the body that sucks the skin and underlying fatty tissue between two cooling plates that freeze the fat to between -5 and -10 degrees Celsius. Fat reduction surgeries; however, are very invasive and require incisions and stitches in the places where the fat is most prevalent.

Potential Pitfalls of Cryolipolysis

While the benefits are substantial, there are some potential pitfalls that most experts will mention in the initial consultation sessions with their clients. These pitfalls are relatively small in number because the process is entirely natural. They include:

Not a Fat Removal Procedure

Cryolipolysis is not a fat removal procedure; it is a fat reduction procedure that contours the body. Body contouring creates a shape of the body while removing the fat of the body. Fat removal is done by surgical procedures, like liposuction. Cryolipolysis does not have such noticeable and immediate results, but the difference appears within weeks of the procedure.

May Not Be Suited For Certain Body Types

Cryolipolysis does not provide drastic results as it is only a fat reduction procedure. Some people mistake it for being a natural way of eradicating their fat from their bodies. This is why cryolipolysis may not be suitable for extremely obese individuals who believe fat freezing would allow for their obesity to be dramatically decreased. Cryolipolysis only contours the body and gives it a slimmer shape.

Final Thoughts

Cryolipolysis is a simple and easy procedure to undergo for anyone who wants to contour their body and naturally get rid of excess fat.
