Fat away with cold without surgery. That sounds tempting and like a great alternative to liposuction, or surgical skin tightening. How does it work and why is it then still liposuction? The method is based on the different reaction of cells and tissues on the cold. Goal is to it the fat cells die off without damaging the surrounding tissue. Weaknesses has the methods, because the fat loss only in the area can occur, which is chilled for an hour to 4 degrees. Thus large areas only across multiple sessions can be treated and the unit can also only rough-surface work and cover non-complex skin structures such as the region directly around the belly button.
Kryolipoyse as fat cold treatment
The cold treatment is a gentle technique with few risks. No surgery is necessary and the procedure is relatively painless. The doctor agrees the areas to be treated with the patient and marks them with a pen. After that, the doctor placed the applicator on the area to be treated. The device draws in the skin, where it is placed between two cooling elements. Then the entire area that lies between the cooling elements, is cooled to less than 4 ° C.
First you will feel it by sucking on a pull on the skin and then a cold shock. Depending on the treated area, you are vary sensitive to the treatment. Areas of skin are more sensitive than areas with fewer nerves to the stomach with many nerves such as the inside of the thigh.
The treatment per session takes approximately one hour and must be distributed depending on the treated area on several sessions. A treatment at the waist can last up to 4 meetings.
Regions for the treatment
- Upper abdominal
- Lower belly
Destroy fat cells with cold
A fabric with a hot gel between the device and the skin is placed to protect the tissue and to reduce only the fat cells. So, the temperatures generated by the device to adjust on a tissue-friendly refrigerant.
The fat cells die off partly by the cold and at the same time be mechanically influenced by suction. Is destroyed and the injuring of fat cells, neurotransmitters are released. They activate cells that are necessary for the removal of the damaged fat cells. The fat is released through this process, and absorbed by the body through the lymphatic system.
During the session, sensors in the device ensures a constant temperature. These sensors have in addition the temperature monitor function during the procedure and adjust.
There are different variants of adipose tissue. White fat and brown adipose tissue. The brown adipose tissue consists of many fat droplets that mainly serve the heat generation, but are rather rare to find in the body. White fat cells can be found in many places of the connective tissue in the body. Distinction is made between two types of FAT: Depot fat in subcutaneous tissue to meet out for weeks without food. Grease for organs or specific areas of the body such as E.g. the ball of the foot to prevent heat loss or mechanical influence. Two-thirds of the fat lie in the subcutaneous tissue, the rest mainly in the abdomen.
The secret of fat cells
Fat cells build up in the normal case, if a persistent excess of energy (calories) in the body, so more energy is introduced, as is mined. Added new fat cells, it is difficult to rid them permanently again. The complete breakdown of fat cells stretches years depending on the age, muscles, metabolism, and living conditions. Genetically seen that is also useful to bypass simpler times with food shortages.
Cut off one turns the body of food and energy balance, then empty the fat cells only, are available but still in full number. If you now again falls back after a few months training or diet in its old scheme the fat cells fill up again and some new ones. So, it comes to the notorious Yo-Yo effect, which brings more weight on the scales at the end as before the diet.
Lose weight with cold
The fat cells, which die off by the Kryotherpie, are broken down by the body of inflammatory cells. This process takes approximately 2-4 months. During the period, other areas can be treated so that the effect of losing weight faster visible.
The reduction of fat cells can be performed only in the upper layers of fat. Can not exactly treated cells in deeper layers.
Anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or Voltaren should not be taken 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment.
Be built on how well when other methods that destroy cells and then by the body for many weeks long it is not sure that a balanced result at the end. The doctor treated the agreed areas of the body though, can estimate but without the immediate removal of the destroyed cells, such as the liposuction only, such as the removal of the cells will be.

Ability to work
Who shuns scalpel and syringe, which can achieve a slight reduction of fat cells with a session in a region. The Cryolipolysis has some weaknesses, because the fat loss only in the area can occur, which is chilled for an hour to 4 degrees.
- Simply structured and easily accessible areas can be treated.
- Large areas need multiple applications
- The fat reduction is rather low when compared to an extraction per session
- The result is assessed only after weeks and often a nutrition and sport is recommended at the same time.
- It can be less accurate when compared to liposuction are worked, because you can see the result until many week after treatment.
Thus large areas only across multiple sessions can be treated and the unit can also only rough-surface work and cover non-complex skin structures such as the region directly around the belly button.
Do not handle under the following circumstances:
- Fat tissue diseases
