Cryotherapy is the latest slimming trend but have you heard of its sister Cryolipo in Dubai?
The promise Although Cryotherapy has been around for a long time, suddenly all things Cryo are all the rage. So while the Cryotherapy supposedly speeds up metabolism, and improves the condition of hair and skin, Cryolipo focuses on one area to freeze fat cells in their tracks. The ‘frostbite’ effect sets in when the chosen area of the body reaches 3 degrees Celsius, forcing your body to shed the excess and now useless fat cells. Unwanted body bulges are said to be a thing of the past if you have enough sessions of this. Depending on the individual, this amount varies but one to four is the recommended number to really notice a difference. The machine is supposed to crystallise fat cells (adipocytes) which will be released via the liver in the follow few weeks to two months. It shouldn’t hurt and 40 percent of the results should begin to show in 15 days, while the full extent will be clear in about six weeks. Step by step Two areas are selected to be treated as a pair eg. Each arm, each leg or in our case upper and lower abdomen. Once a protective gel is smoothed onto the area, the device is placed on the first area and once the machine is turned on and vacuum level is gradually turned up - all the way to 10, the highest – the skin fat tissue is sucked up and cooled down to around 3 degrees. The therapist times the machine –which also tells you the amount of tissue inside the plates by millimetres – then leaves us to watch a movie in peace. It feels oddly freezing at first and extremely tight but once we relax we get used to it in just a few minutes.
The result When it’s removed the area is completely numb and remains slightly so a few days later. You should be able to continue activity as normal afterwards but we were aware of how delicate the area was while working out, which is recommended along with a healthy diet to help speed up the real fat removal process.
Pros It’s non-surgical and you can actually feel that the fat has been frozen afterwards as the feeling is even absent the next day.
