Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive technology that uses extreme cold to dismantle fat cells and help reduce a fat pocket. A paneled or cupped device is placed on top of the skin in the treatment area, where it transmits temperatures that are just low enough to freeze fat cells, essentially destroying them. Because skin, muscle and nerve tissue freeze at a lower temperature than fat, these tissues remain unharmed. OneLipo is a brand name of cryolipolysis. Average fat loss is 20-27% per session.
In general, non-surgical skin tightening procedures work by using targeted energy to heat deeper layers of skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production and gradually improves skin tone and texture. Some treatments also affect fibrous tissue to help smooth cellulite. There are numerous FDA cleared skin tightening treatments and technologies on the market; each uses a unique mechanism to achieve the desired result. Our guide below will help you learn more about non-surgical skin tightening and your various options.
There are areas of the body that are very resistant to dieting and exercising. The problem is that one may lose weight, but the fat from the troubled area desired to treat doesn’t go away. With this non-invasive treatment, an applicator gets applied strategically to the target area you want to get rid of, causing the fat to become frozen and die. Over the 4-6 week period, the fat will get metabolized and then excreted out of your system. This four to six week process also allows skin ample time to readjust and retighten so you aren’t left with excess skin.
Cellulite forms when fibrous bands called “septae,” which connect the skin to the underlying muscle fascia, tighten irregularly, pulling down on the skin, and/or begin to break down, allowing the normal layer of fat beneath the skin to push upward. This results in the puckering or “cottage cheese” appearance.
An estimated 85 to 90% of adult women have cellulite, typically on the abdomen, buttocks and thighs. The aging process can worsen the appearance of cellulite, as skin loses elasticity and is less able to resist irregular tension created by the fibrous bands. While overweight individuals tend to have more pronounced cellulite, it is common even in very lean women, and losing weight rarely gets rid of cellulite altogether.
