Our bodies can be genetically stubborn, especially when it comes to those troublesome areas of fat which no amount of exercise or healthy eating can seem to combat. It often results in a vicious cycle of binge eating and complaining about our weight until some people decide to have it surgically removed
At Metamorphosis, we have a safer more affordable alternative to surgery. Cryolipolysis is pioneering new solution, with no scars, no needles. and no anaesthesia.
Each of us has a number of fat cells, which stop reproducing once we reach puberty. Cryolipolysis is non-invasively cooling which can remove these fat cells by mediated lysis, without damaging nerves or any other tissues. This is possible because our bodies react differently to cooling temperatures, therefore lipids and fats crystalize faster than normal cells. These cells are then eliminated naturally via our body’s own metabolic system.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Simply put, Cryolipolysis results in fat cell death. An increased
inflammation recruits a number of immune cells into the area of
freezing, resulting in mediating lysis (death) of fatty cells. This
phenomenon then results in a gradual slimming of the targeted area
within several weeks
WHERE DO THE FAT CELLS GO?
YOUR BODY DIGESTS THEM. JUST LIKE ANY ENERGY SOURCE, THEY ARE CLEARED
THROUGH THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM.
WILL I PUT THE WEIGHT BACK ON?
Our bodies contain a finite number of fat cells and therefore the cells will not reproduce. However, an individual’s excessive calorie intake could trigger the remaining fats cells to compensate and increase in size. It is therefore important to maintain a healthy lifestyle following your treatment.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?
This is a common Cryolipolysis FAQ. There are no adverse long-term affects associated with Cryolipolysis. The concept is based on the responsiveness of fat cells to the cold. It is proven that our skin and fat are affected at different temperatures; therefore you can freeze the fat but not harm the skin. With that
said, patients may experience a little bruising and numbness, which tends to last several days.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO RECOVER?
The method is 100% non-invasive; this means no scalpels, needles, anaesthetic or sedation. With no restrictions or limitations imposed patients are free to resume their routines immediately after treatment.
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
The length of procedures varies depending on the targeted area and the number of areas being treated. We cannot guarantee specific results, however, on average each session can result in a 23% reduction of fat Our clinicians are dedicated to bringing you the very best results, so once we have understood your needs, we will help put together a bespoke plan for you.
WILL THIS WORK ON LOOSE SKIN AND FAT?
Unfortunately, Cryolipolysis is not designed to tighten loose or stretched skin. This may require other approaches such as RF or our cavitation and skin tightening treatments. However, if you are still unsure come in and see us, and we will determine whether or not our procedure is suitable.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?
Patients must be older than 18.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
Once you have helped identify the treatment area your practitioner will place a cool gel pad on it to help protect the skin. A vacuum is then attached to the area, which draws in the fat, and as this occurs
you will experience a mild cold sensation, which will gradually drop in temperature to around -3 or -4 degrees Celsius, freezing the fat cells.This procedure will last 1 hour, during which time you are able to
listen to music, watch a movie and use the Wifi while the treatment gets to work.
WHAT IS THE COST OF TREATMENT?
Cryolipolysis – Starting at ₹5000
