FAQ Technology

What is "Cryogenic Lipolysis"?

This is the correct and full medical term to describe the “Fat Freezing” process we apply with our CryoGen treatments. The more commonly referred to term of “Cryolipolysis” is an acronym (abbreviated version) of this correct medical term and has been registered as a trademark by the manufacturers of the Coolsculpting platform, Zeltiq Inc. In order to avoid confusion and ensure the correct terminology is used, we will always refer to “Cryolipolysis” by its full and correct name, “Cryogenic Lipolysis”.

Which is the best Fat Freezing machine to buy?

Are CoolSculpting, Velashape, Zeltiq, 3d-lipo and CryoGen the same treatmentThe Fat freezing machines provided by Zeltiq Coolsculpting, 3d-Lipo and Lipoglaze all work in a similar manner, however results do depend on the quality of the platform and training received from each manufacturer. We believe that we offer the highest quality product and our training is second to none. Therefore, our results compare extremely favourably with the competition, all at an unbeatable price point!

How Does CryoGenic Lipolysis Work?

The CryoGen implements the principles of a scientifically proven technique known as “Cryogenic Lipolysis”. This is combined with the stimulating effects of PDT to also deliver toning of the skin in the treatment area.

  1. The area is cleaned, measured and marked to ensure optimal treatment of the areas the clients wishes to target.
  2. A protective anti-freeze membrane is placed over the treatment area.
  3. The Cryo treatment head is placed over the treatment area, configured and switched on.
  4. A gentle sucking sensation, following by a cold feeling will be experienced. This is not painful, but some clients may find it mildly uncomfortable in the first few minutes.
  5. The treatment head remains in place for 30 minutes.
  6. Immediately following treatment, the PureCryo treatment head and protective membrane are removed, then the area is massaged for 2 minutes. This improves blood flow and lymphatic drainage, thereby maximising the efficacy of the treatments.
Is Cryogenic Lipolysis better than Laser Lipo?

Both Cryogenic and Laser Lipolysis deliver outstanding inch loss and body contouring capabilities, so how do you choose which technology would work best in your business?

Laser Lipo is based on the use of Laser light energy to stimulate the inch loss process. This has the following benefits compared to Cryogenic Lipolysis :-

  • Delivers immediate inch loss results
  • Treats a larger area during a course
  • Promotes skin tightening

Cryogenic Lipolysis (also known as “Fat Freezing”), leverages the principle of popsicle apoptosis to cause the death of fat cells with a single treatment. This has the following benefits compared to Laser Lipolysis :-

  • No exercise required after treatment
  • Can treat directly over tattoos without the risk of fading the tattoo
  • Once in remission for more than 2 years, Cancer is no longer a contra-indication for Cryogenic Lipolysis

Therefore, the decision is primarily determined by your target market. Ask yourself the following questions and then look below for the best fit for your business :-

  1. Do most of your clients have tattoos?
  2. Your clients do not want to exercise?
  3. Is there a high rate of ex-Cancer sufferers in your target market?
  4. Are clients prepared to wait for the inch loss results to be achieved naturally (without the need to exercise)?

If your answers were mostly “Yes”, the CryoGen with its Cryogenic Lipolysis inch loss function is more suited to your market.

If your answers were mostly “No”, you should definitely opt to purchase the CryoGen with its Advanced Laser Lipolysis inch loss function, or the PureLift with our new 4-D Cavi Inch Loss, are more suited to your market.
