What exactly is Ultra Cryolipolysis and how does it work?



Cryolipolysis or “fat freezing” is a medical treatment designed to destroy fat cells, by what we would like to call “geniuses” at Harvard medical school.  Seen as a no needle, no scalpel, no scaring alternative to invasive liposuction, the procedure reshapes your body contours, using non-invasive cooling technology, which leads to localized reduction of fat deposits.

Now for the science bit; fat cells are more receptive to the effects of cold in comparison to the surrounding tissue. Through controlled cooling it causes cell death of subcutaneous fat tissue without apparent damage to the overlying skin.  The dead cells are then removed naturally by the body through the liver.

Ultra Crylipolysis does indeed work, however just like everything to do with weight loss treatments; you have to lead a healthy lifestyle such as eating correctly and exercising for you to get the maximum benefits. There are many celebrity reviews along with some amazing feedback from our clients at Langaro Lifestyle Centre with before and after photos showing the difference and effectiveness after fat freezing.


Now the real question that everybody wants to know when it comes to Ultra Crylipolysis is, how does it actually work? In a nutshell, we basically plug you up to a machine, which sucks on your fat. It feels really cold due to the special vacuum cup that has cooling plates and “chills” the selected areas. However, when cooled fat cells become delineated, they no longer function in their usual way, instead they breakdown and are dissolved into the body via the lymphatic & immune system. The surrounding blood vessels, nerves, etc are much less receptive to low temperatures and remain unaffected. This results is, a reduction in fat cells without affliction to the surrounding tissues.


Depending on the thickness of the selected area, each session can take up to 45 minutes. It can also depend on how each client responds to the cooling technology, however at Langaro, we always do a consultation with our clients beforehand to see what each individuals requirements are. For those who aren’t too sensitive to the cold, additional time will be allocated for more than one area. The treatment is not considered painful- some clients have actually fallen asleep during their session while others have found it to be slightly uncomfortable due to the cold. There is no anesthetic or numbing solution during the treatment.

How many sessions will one need? Everyone is different and some clients may have areas that are considered more stubborn, however one session is sufficient for most areas. If desired, you can choose to have further minimization in the same area but the recommended waiting time between sessions is generally 45-60 days. Reduction in fat can be between 20% and 40% but once again this also varies on the individual and the actual thickness of the fat cells in each area. One can start seeing amazing changes over 12 weeks, however many clients start noticing a big difference in just two weeks! Just like all beauty, wellness and weight loss treatments It should always be stressed by your therapist that your lifestyle and exercise regime maintained after an ultra cryolipolysis treatment is crucial if you want quicker and more effective results.

You should not bruise or have any prolonged redness after a treatment, in fact there is normally zero side effects, recovery time or downtime after cryolipolysis. One can resume back to their daily routines after a treatment.

Another fantastic advantage to cryolipolysis is that the results are permanent. Once fat cells are broken down by crystallization, the same fat cells cannot grow back. However, the treatment should not be used as a substitute for taking care of your body. As mentioned above, combining cryolipolysis with a healthy diet and exercise will only maximize the end result.
