Cryolipolysis is the non-invasive cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis- the breaking down of fat cells –to reduce body fat without damage to other tissues. Cool-sculpting procedure using Cryolipolysis induces apoptosis only in fat cells to gently and gradually reduce the fat layer while preserving all other tissues.
Cryolipolysis work on some stubborn fat which is immune to diet and exercise. It targets and cools fat cells to temperature that trigger fat cell apoptosis. There is no damage to nerves or other tissues because lipids in fat crystallize at the warmer temperature than water in other cell types. Hence, the fat layer reduction in targeted areas leads to an improvement in flank appearance.
