Nothing to lose…
…just some inches!
Mulberry House Clinic patient Helle has previously shared reviews of non-surgical face lifts. As a regular patient, she was eager to try this year’s new cryolipolysis treatment for tackling stubborn pockets of fat.
CRISTAL® Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical liposuction treatment which uses intense cold to break down areas of fat that can accumulate on the body.
This is not a weight loss treatment and you don’t need to be overweight to struggle with these stubborn areas. Many women and men find that specific areas resist all efforts of diet and exercise. But if you can pinch 2.5cm of fatty tissue (about an inch), then the area is probably suitable for cryolipolysis treatment.
I have read many beauty bloggers rave on about the new, so called fat freezing “liposuction” – AKA CRISTAL cryolipolysis which I simply couldn’t wait to try! It is a way of body sculpting troublesome areas where is it hard to shift unwanted fat.
I am a very healthy weight and train 5-6 times a week, so I am more toned than an average woman. However, I have always had the so called “saddle bags” on my outer thighs that will not shift no matter how hard I workout or diet.
The cryolipolysis process was very interesting. A cryolipolysis device cools fat cells to the point of death, so cells are reabsorbed and flushed from the body. I was measured and marked with a pen to start with, then a special gel and pads were attached to my outer thighs. The machine kind of sucked the area up and then the cooling process started. It wasn’t painful, just a bit strange. I felt like my thighs were attached to an industrial size hoover and they were getting very cold.
After an hour and two cups of warm green tea, the machine released my thighs and the treated area looked and felt like ice blocks. The most uncomfortable part of the treatment began by these areas being massaged. It wasn’t painful as such, but felt like I had been skiing in cold weather and couldn’t feel the area.
I returned to running and lifting weights the next day as it is important that the treated area is massaged and moving. My thighs bruised up quite a lot but this disappeared after three weeks. I felt very thirsty and kept drinking more water than usual.
I didn’t notice much difference in the first 4 weeks but after that the saddle bags began to disappear! I am over the moon! It can take up to three months for the procedure to work but I have lost 5 cm from each thigh already and couldn’t be happier.
If a well sculpted body is important to you and you live a healthy lifestyle and are not overweight but have some troublesome areas, then I would definitely recommend thinking about cryolipolysis.
Let’s face it – it is like liposuction but without any surgery, high risk complications, expense nor long recovery time. There is nothing to lose, just some inches!Helle
CRISTAL® Cryolipolysis offers a number of advantages over some of the alternative systems:
- Most clients need just 2 treatments (other ‘fat freezing’ systems often require more)
- 25-30% of the fat treated eliminated after each session
Popular areas for cryolipolysis treatment include the midriff area – abdomen/tummy/belly/waist. In addition, CRISTAL® cryolipolysis can effectively treat hips, love handles, muffin top, saddlebags, thighs or arms.
