How does the CryoShape fat freezing belt work?
CryoShape is intended for cosmetic purposes. It is non-invasive and the device is strapped around the area where you want to target any unwanted fat. It uses cool temperatures to reduce the appearance of unwanted fat and increases the appearance of tightening in the area where the product is used. We always recommend that CryoShape is to be used with a diet plan that promotes natural weight loss alongside exercise and general healthy living.
How does CryoShape freeze the fat?
By using Cryolipolysis - the procedure that involves the non-invasive cooling of body fat to break down fat cells, resulting in a reduction of body fat without damage to other tissues.
What areas can I treat with the CryoShape Fat Freezer?
You can use the CryoShape Fat Freezer almost anywhere on your body. This includes the arms, underarms, thighs, legs, buttocks, love handles and most typical, the stomach area. (Do not use on your head, eyes, neck (throat), breasts, genital area, and inside the mouth).
How often can I use the CryoShape Fat Freezer?
Your CryoShape can be used on one part of the body every 4 weeks. You can even use it after 2 weeks if you drink a lot of water, and keep up with a regular diet. During the 4 weeks, you can work on other areas of your body. It is recommended to divide the stomach into 3 sections for the CryoShape Fat Freezer.
How do I prepare my body for the CryoShape Fat Freezer before using?
You must place a Fat Freezer pad between your skin and the metal plate on the device. Make sure the device is laying flat on the skin. The Fat Freezer pads (Included in Kit) are used to protect skin from the cold temperature of the device.
Does the CryoShape Fat Freezer cause any pain?
The process itself is not painful at all! Your skin might get a little bruised from the cold, but the pain is very minimal.
How cold does CryoShape get?
CryoShape retains a constant temperature of -6C to -8C. It is the low temperature that is constantly applied to targeted areas that gives optimum results.
What are the buttons on the device do?
The buttons on the device are used for the treatment time and the power. The power button you press once to turn the machine on, and once to turn the machine off. The 15 minute button makes your CryoShape Fat Freezer cold for 15 minutes. The 30 minute button keeps the machine on for 30 minutes.
What do I do after the treatment?
Gently rub the treated area to break up the treated fat cells.
Why is it recommended to drink a lot of water during my downtime?
Drinking plenty of water helps naturally flush out the melted fat cells through urine.
How many sheets come in a CryoShape Fat Freezer pack?
The kit includes 1 pack of 10 sheets, good for 10 uses. You can purchase replacements pads online. It's very important to use a protective pad with each treatment, as this protects the skin.
What is ‘Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia’ or PAH?
After cryolipolysis, patients who go on to develop ‘Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia’ or PAH have an apparently good result with shrinkage of the fat cells in the area. However, after a few moths the tissue is replaced by firmer collagen rich fatty tissue which leads to recurrent fat deposition in the area and a poorer cosmetic result.
How often does ‘Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia’ or PAH occur?
According to an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association it occurs with a frequency of 1 in 20000 cryolipolysis treated patients.
Can PAH be treated?
In most cases PAH is successfully treated with traditional liposuction with mechanical disruption of the collagen, chemical break down of the fat which is then suctioned away.
Is PAH less likely after using the CryoShape?
PAH has not been reported by users of CryoShape as it delivers shorter bursts of freezing energy over a smaller area. There is less mechanical trauma to the tissues as compared to other in-salon methods that clamps the tissue between two plates with compression for up to 45 minutes.
As the CryoShape device is controlled by the user it is less likely to induce painful or severe freezing, if used correctly. The same level of fat breakdown can be achieved by multiple sequential applications to an area over time, without the expense of multiple clinic visits.
