FAT FREEZING: CRISTAL CRYOLIPOLYSIS
What on earth is cristal cryolipolysis I hear you say?!
A treatment popular with many celebs, it’s technology based on the fact that the fat cells in our body are very sensitive to cold temperatures, and at a certain temperature fat cells begin to die and our body naturally and gradually flushes them out. It’s non-invasive and designed to select and freeze fat cells through controlled cooling without damaging any of the surrounding tissue and after 8 weeks you should see a significant reduction!
If its good enough for a Kardashian, it’s good enough for me! (you go gal KoKo)
So could not wait to try this new treatment at my local skin clinic Skin Health Spa as soon as it became available!
Once in the room your aesthetician and yourself discuss the process and what area you would like to be treated ( you can choose from upper arms, love handles, lower/upper stomach, bra fat and thighs!) For me personally I HATE my arms and with going away on holiday soon it was a no brainer. Next the aesthetician measured my upper arms and noted it down so for my next treatment we can see what difference we have achieved!
After marking my chosen area out it was time for me to get on the bed and get myself comfy (you will be lying there for an hour so this is of utter importance) and then a protectant gel is placed on your chosen area as well as a material sheet to prevent discomfort and finally the hand piece is positioned on the area and the suction/cooling begins… now the fun part
For the first 5-10 minutes while your hand piece is on, I won’t lie it is a strange experience. However once you are numb you can’t feel anything and is up to you whether you nap, listen to some music, scroll through your phone or whatever takes your fancy! Your aesthetician will leave you to relax but will come and check on you every so often to make sure your still comfortable and to see how your getting on.
Once the hour is up your hand piece is taken off and the area is massaged to bring back to room temperature to help speed up the lymphatic and metabolic processes in the body. You may feel a little tender after, feeling numb is the weirdest part! you can also be a little swollen and bruising can occur but these are all normal contra-actions and will disappear in a few days. But carry on as you would do on a normal day! there is no downtime woooo!
THE BEST BIT
THE RESULTS ARE PERMANENT! Similar to lipo once the fat cells are gone…they are gone. They won’t come back in that area, however be warned if you do not keep up with a healthy lifestyle and put weight back on it will go onto another area, eek!
As the fat cells are naturally and gradually flushed out of our body you usually see results as early as 6-8 weeks, however the process keeps on going for up to 4 months (generally there is a fat loss of 30%-40% in that area WOW) , and if your not satisfied you can return for another session 4 months after!
Personally I really enjoyed this treatment, virtually pain free and didn’t have to step foot in a gym or break a sweat, what’s not to like?!
