Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive treatment for fat removal. It is also known as CoolSculpting, which is a trademark for a device and treatment by Zeltiq Aesthetics Ltd.
Cryolipolysis works to reduce fat in specific areas of the body and is most commonly used on the stomach and back. It is the cooling of subcutaneous fat cells, which induces lipolysis, the breaking down of the fat cells, without damaging any of the surrounding tissues or the skin. It is not a permanent solution to fat loss; whilst it can reduce fat cells that are already present, it cannot prevent remaining fat cells from increasing in size so individuals will have to maintain their fat loss either through a combination of a healthy diet and exercise or further cryolipolysis procedures.
Following the procedure, the fat breaks down over a period of two to four months, resulting in fat loss that appears entirely natural.
