Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive body contouring treatment used to reduce fat cell volume by freezing.
The method involves controlled application of cooling within the temperature range of +5 to -11 °C for the non-invasive, localized reduction of fat deposits, intending to reshape the contours of the body. The degree of exposure to cooling causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue, without apparent damage to the overlying skin. The method has a low rate of complications, and is deemed to be safe and effective for fat reduction by about 20% at certain body sites.
As a medical procedure, cryolipolysis is a nonsurgical alternative to liposuction.Etymologically, the term cryolipolysis (freezing of fat) is derived from the Greek roots cryo, meaning cold; lipo, meaning fat; and lysis, meaning dissolution or loosening. Cryolipolysis is used in aesthetic clinics and spas with the technology used exclusively in CoolSculpting branded devices.
