Having an abdominal potbelly is frequent with age in both men and women. This abdominal buoy represents the passing of time and sometimes reminds us that we must maintain a healthy lifestyle. However, sports or diets are often insufficient to restore a flat, harmonious and attractive belly.
Belly's fat remains by weighing down the silhouette.
Thanks to aesthetic medicine, it is possible to recover a slim figure with cryolipolysis, a high-performance slimming technique: a single session destroys 25 to 30 per cent of localized fat deposits.
The principle: how to lose weight quickly?
Cryolipolysis is a method of weight loss that allows fat cells to be permanently destroyed by the cold. It is a scientific method supported by a number of medical studies published in international journals. That's why Coolsculpting® was the first cryolipolysis device authorized by the FDA in the world.
What is belly fat?
In men, genetic and hormonal factors dictate the so-called android model, with a preferential fat distribution in the upper part of the body. This results in adipomastia of the thorax and abdominal belly, often as early as 40 years of age. A sedentary lifestyle and diet will reinforce it.
In women, the so-called gynoid distribution is different, and primarily affects the lower part of the body (hips, thighs, buttocks). However, andropause, which causes an increase in androgen levels, will also contribute to the presence of belly in women.
How does the cold act on the belly fat ?
Cryolipolysis uses strong and prolonged cold to crystallize the lipid vacuoles of the adipocytes (fat storage cells) that cause damage to the cell membrane. The temperature must be at least -10°C for at least 25/30 minutes.
Since the storage cell has very little cellular material to repair itself, this lesion triggers its final destruction by apoptosis.
As the adipocyte is also unable to multiply, any fat cell destroyed will be destroyed forever How is it possible to permanently remove fat deposits?
When the adipocyte cell is destroyed, it will stay in the body first, leaving the fat volume unchanged.
It is progressively absorbed by the macrophage, a type of white blood cell, via the lymphatic system. Nothing enters the bloodstream, so there is no risk of increase of the cholesterol or triglyceride levels. This cleansing of cellular debris and lipids takes 1 to 3 months, allowing the fat volume to decrease slowly and in a progressive and staggered manner.
A single session of cryolipolysis eventually removes 25 to 30 percent of the fat from the belly, with clear results after about 1 to 3 months.
The indications: who can easily reclaim a flat belly?
Abdominal cryolipolysis is suitable for anyone wanting to lose weight effortlessly, provided that their weight is stabilized.
Losing weight on the stomach should not be confused with a medical treatment for morbid obesity or severe overweight.
Cryolipolysis is targeted at localized fat bulges, such as the belly or the abdominal bulge, sometimes as a replacement to abdominal liposuction. If, on the other hand, excess skin is to be removed, abdominoplasty or tummy tuck is often the only solution.
Coolsculpting procedure to lose the belly fat
This belly slimming session is taking place at the Clinique des Champs Elysées in Dubai. It's about 60 minutes long. The procedure is painless because the cold anesthesize the belly. Coolsculpting® offers two types of applicators for the recovery of the flat belly, which can be coupled with vacuum aspiration if necessary. Your esthetic doctor may choose either a large applicator or two medium applicators.
The painless strap keeps the cryogenic probe on your abdomen during the session: you can spend time as you desire, without getting up.
At the end of the procedure, a delicate draining and emollient massage protects the skin and breaks down fatty deposits.
The results of cryolipolysis: lose belly fat successfully
The result of one session appears in 4 weeks and delivers optimal results between 2 and 3 months. One to three appointments at 2 month intervals are usually required to thin the belly without effort.
With your flat belly, your figure becomes leaner, younger, more dynamic looking. Cryolipolysis of the belly enables you to eventually lose up to half of your abdominal fat, safely and painlessly.
