From laser skin resurfacing to LED face masks, the beauty industry is full of innovative breakthroughs and technology-driven treatments. For the beauty junkie, this means endless opportunities to try something new – and if you’re looking for a body treatment that really makes a difference, cryolipolysis (fat freezing) could be the perfect pick for you.
This buzzworthy beauty trend has everyone talking, so we’re breaking down the essential details you need to know.
How does it work?
Cryolipolysis or ‘fat freezing’ is a body shaping treatment that uses cold temperatures to target fat cells and break them down, permanently removing them from the body. It’s non-invasive and results in a reduction of body fat after repeated sessions.
With over 1 million treatments performed worldwide and celebrity fans like Molly Sims, Khloe Kardashian and Kris Jenner, cryolipolysis is one of the most popular non-surgical body shaping procedures available today.
At Caci, we use a machine that applies controlled cooling to the targeted area for our award-winning ChillSculpt treatment. This will freeze and reduce fat cells, which will then disappear gradually through the body’s own natural metabolic process.
What should I know before getting it done?
It’s important to know that ChillSculpt is not meant for weight loss. Instead, it’s best for people who have a healthy BMI and a stubborn, unwanted pocket or bulge of fat that won’t budge even with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
At Caci, you’ll have a complimentary consultation to go through everything you need to know before the treatment. You’ll also have a medical review with a Registered Nurse to make sure you’re suitable for the treatment.
What does it feel like?
You will feel a suction-like pressure and a cooling sensation in the targeted area as the treatment is being performed. After the treatment, you might experience some temporary bruising, redness or numbness in the area but there’s no need to worry as this is all normal and typically resolves itself within 7-10 days. You can go back to normal activities right after the treatment.
Where can I get it?
At Caci, we treat the following areas:
• Stomach (lower abdomen)
• Hips: Muffin tops
• Back: Bra strap area and love handles
• Saddle bags
