The term “cryotherapy” comes from the Greek word cryo meaning cold and therapy meaning cure. Cryogenic or crypto freezing is medical freezing at sub zero temperatures that keeps tissues intact. The technical name for freezing off problematic fat is cryolipolysis (cryogenic lipolysis). It cools fat cells down to a temperature initiating the apoptosis process which is just a fancy name for the end of a cell’s life cycle.  The process supposedly sped up by fat freezing treatment through targeting fatty areas. Basically, fat freezing kills and disposes of fat cells targeted during treatment.

For year, Cryolipolysis by Z Lipo has been used to lessen deposits of fat in various parts of the body for both men and women. Love handles, abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, banana rolls are the most targeted areas for this type of non-invasive fat removal. Cryolipolysis by Z Lipo works  because fat has a different freezing point than the surrounding tissue and skin and hence the cold treatment causes apoptosis of the fat cells without causing damage to other tissues. The complete breakdown and removal of fat cells the natural way takes about 10 to 12 weeks.

Achieving your dream figure has gotten a lot easier with Z-Lipo which gets rid of stubborn fat deposits.

Is the treatment painful?

However, its completely harmless and lasts for only a few minutes. To avoid damage to the skin, a gel pad is applied to the targeted area during the treatment.
