What is Cryoskin Fat Freezing?
Cryoskin fat freezing is a procedure that can be performed to remove stubborn fatty deposits from areas of the body. The Cryoskin procedure is an effective, safe, and painless way to reduce unwanted fat on the stomach, thighs, buttocks, or underarms. Cryoskin uses cryotherapy technology to freeze and destroy adipose tissue for long-lasting results. Information can be found here.
The Cryoskin procedure has been shown in clinical studies to permanently reduce fatty deposits by up to 50%. This offers patients the opportunity for dramatic improvements in their appearance with no downtime required. See here for information about Cryoskin: Annihilating fat cells for a nice figure.
Patients are placed under general anesthesia, an armpit or stomach area will be numbed using injections, then doctors insert a thin tube-like device called a cannula into the skin at various depths depending on where they wish to treat. A liquid solution consisting of water mixed with antifreeze (propylene glycol) and salt (sodium chloride) is pumped through the Cryoskin device, which has a balloon on one end that's inflated with warm water. This process freezes the adipose cells under the skin until they burst or are otherwise destroyed.
The trapped liquid in between layers of tissue will be absorbed naturally over time based on how much Cryoskin was done at each sitting. It should generally take about three months for most patients to see results from their Cryoskin session(s). The effects can last up to two years, but some people may need additional treatments after this period if they still have excessive fat deposits located in those same areas where Cryo Skin treatment had taken place previously.
