The Science behind it..
So let us explain the basic science and brief history of Cryolipolysis Fat Freezing. Until 2010 the removal of fat was usually achieved by liposuction or abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) surgery. Whilst these methods both provide good results they are an invasive treatment posing many risks and cost an average of £4,000 - £5,000, Reports as far back as the 1900's document adipose tissue and its sensitivity to cold. In the 1970's it was reported fat necrosis (cell death) in an infant who had been sucking on an ice lolly. This was then observed in adult patients to prove lipid rich tissues are susceptible to cold without the harm of other organs, In 2007 Cryolipolysis was then introduced as a method for fat elimination and in 2012 is received FDA approval.
Triglycerides which are a type of lipid (natural fat) are found in our body tissue. When we eat, our body converts any calories it doesn't need into these triglycerides. The triglycerides are stored in our fat cells and if we regularly eat more calories than we burn, particularly empty calories like carbohydrates, sugars and fats, we can find ourselves with triglycerides, commonly known as fat bulges. Luckily these fat cells are susceptible to freezing at low temperatures whereas other surrounding tissues are not.
This tried, tested and proven process uses advanced technology called Cryolipolysis, or more commonly referred to as Cool Sculpting®, Ice Lipo or Fat Freezing. Vacuum cups are placed on the chosen areas of fat and the triglycerides are frozen to between -1 and -10 degrees. These unwanted fat cells are unable to survive at this temperature, they are frozen, die and eliminated naturally. The surrounding areas of tissue remain unharmed and over a period of 4-12 weeks the body will reshape.
