Ice Lipo is based on the science of Cryolipolysis. It’s a term that combines “cryo” (icy cold) with “lipolysis” (the chemical decomposition of fat). The premise is that under carefully controlled conditions, subcutaneous fat cells are more vulnerable than other surrounding tissue to the effects of cold. Scientists at Harvard University noticed that children who ate Popsicle got dimples in their cheeks. After some research the scientists realised that the cold was freezing fat cells, which then got eliminated.
This procedure selectively targets localized fat deposits; common areas include abdominal fat, love handles, back rolls, muffin-tops and bulges above Cesarean section incision lines. The procedure works best if the patient has stable weight and small specific areas to target, not suitable for patients with a high BMI.
Treatments take from 45 minutes up to 2 hours depending on individual needs, which are always subject to assessment.
