For fat freezing and cellulite reduction, we use thermographic imaging plates to identify the location and severity of microcirculatory damage in cutaneous and subcutaneous tissue. This allows for greater precision and an individualized course of treatment to address the specific problem areas. The cooling of the skin results in cell apoptosis, a natural, controlled cell death, which causes the fluids that bind fat cells together to crystalize destroying the fat cells and the bonds holding the fatty deposits together. Inflammatory cells gradually digest the affected fat cells in the months after the procedure, thus reducing the thickness of the fat layer. Lipids from the fat cells are slowly released and transported by the lymphatic system and eliminated through the body’s normal metabolic processes.
The only requirement post-treatment is to move the lymphatic system. We offer compression and vibration therapy to assist with lymphatic drainage. Lymphatic massage, additional light cardio and lots of water will also expedite results.
While dramatic and often immediate effects are visible after just one treatment, optimal and long-term results are achieved with a series of sessions for deeper penetration of the epidermal layers. Repeated sessions will slowly take away upper ranges of fat, break down cellulite and smooth and tone the skin. Fat freezing typically requires a minimum of 4-8 treatments and are scheduled every 3-4 weeks. Cellulite reduction treatments can be scheduled once each week and Skin Tightening/Toning treatments can be scheduled as often as twice per week. Body Contouring is a lesser temperature setting used for slimming, toning and skin rejuvenation - often used for for a smoother and firmer buttocks, an extra lift or cut to show off the underlying muscle, or tighten loose skin from dramatic weight loss.
*Post-treatment exercise stimulates lymphatic drainage to expedite the process and avoid any cramping or nausea. After each treatment session, we offer both compression therapy and vibration therapy to assist with lymphatic drainage. We also suggest 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise and extra intake of water on the day of and after treatment to ensure proper lymphatic drainage. Typical results will not include any weight loss, but loss of inches and/or change in shape is to be expected along with tighter, smoother skin and a more youthful, healthy glow.
