Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive fat removal procedure, often marketed as fat freezing. It is the cooling of subcutaneous fat cells, which induces lipolysis, the breaking down of the fat cells, without damaging any of the surrounding tissues or the skin. Fat freezing technically known as cryolipolysis, is an FDA approved non-invasive method of freezing Fat cells to get rid of “love handles,” a double chin and other unwanted bulges of fat. It promises to remove 25 percent of fat in a given area, but probably not all in a single treatment. Cryolipolysis is a method to remove fat by freezing. The method involves controlled application of cooling within the temperature range of -11 to +5 °C for the non-invasive, localized reduction of fat deposits, intending to reshape the contours of the body.When trying to freeze the fat at home with ice packs or other methods, it cannot maintain the controlled temperatures needed because of your personal body heat. Some people try to make the packs colder so they stay frozen longer, but that can damage skin without the proper gel-pad or protectant.
