Fat Cryolipolysis Treatment In San Diego

Fat freezing also known as cryolipolysis, is a non-surgical fat-reduction procedure that employs controlled chilling to get rid of stubborn fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise alone. There is no need for general or topical anesthetics or painkillers. There is no downtime, and you may start exercising and engaging in other daily activities right afterward.

How To Prepare For Your Treatment

Stop any medications that thin your blood as bruising in the areas of treatment is possible. If you are unsure about whether your medications are blood thinners please review this with your medical providers. Over the counter medications like aspirin, anti-inflammatories and fish oil supplements may also exacerbate bruising and should be discontinued.

Day Of Treatment

  • Wear comfortable loose clothing
  • As the gel pads will be administered with the applicator and will smear any clothing you are wearing throughout the treatment, wear cheap underwear and bring an additional pair to wear at home.
  • You can eat before coming in, but we advise a light lunch because, very infrequently, some people may feel queasy at the beginning of the session.
  • Prior to your treatment, a photograph will be taken for comparison on your follow up.

The fat cells are destroyed permanently. After Cryolipolysis treatment the fat cells are destroyed by a natural process called apoptosis, the fat cells are removed by the body through the lymphatic system as a waste product. As the fat cells are removed body as with Liposuction, fat will not deposit again in the same area that was treated. However, without proper diet and lifestyle changes, remaining fat cells may expand and grow.
