Cryolipolysis - Freezing Cold to Combat Fat Cells

With cryolipolysis according to the Coolsculpting® method from Zeltiq, an ice age is starting for excess fat tissue.

Stubborn, small to medium-sized fat deposits at the

  • Hips
  • Abdomen
  • Ribs
  • Sides of the back
  • Inner thighs

can be gently eliminated using cryolipolysis, with natural-looking results. It is an effective alternative to conventional surgical body-contouring procedures for small areas. As a training center, Rosenpark Clinic accompanied the market launch in Europe of this non-invasive method according to the Coolsculpting® method.

How is it performed?

Cryolipolysis takes advantage of the fact that fat cells react very sensitively to cold. During treatment, an applicator emits cold temperatures in a precise and controlled fashion to the fat cells to be treated. Without warmth, their blood supply is interrupted and they die off. The skin and surrounding tissue remain intact throughout this procedure.

Over time following treatment, the body flushes out the destroyed fat cells. The result are obvious after two to three months: a significant, natural-looking reduction in subcutaneous fat.

Is anesthesia required?

No. Cryolipolysis is pain-free.

When can I resume normal daily activities?

Immediately. Following the outpatient treatment, you can resume normal daily activities.
