Cryolipolysis, also known as "fat freezing," is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment designed to reduce localized fat pockets on the body. The procedure works by exposing the targeted area to controlled cooling, which causes fat cells to undergo apoptosis, otherwise known as “cell death”.
During a Forma treatment, the Cryo T-Shock is wanded on the skin over the targeted area.
Other cryolipolysis devices and procedures utilize vacuum suctioning of the skin to target problem areas. This method can be very painful, as it unnecessarily stretches the skin and can leave lasting burn marks. Our T-Shock wand does not utilize any suction and delivers a safer, superior result.
Cryolipolysis can be an effective way to reduce stubborn fat deposits that are resistant to traditional weight loss methods. The results of cryolipolysis treatments are generally seen within 4-6 weeks after the procedure, as the body gradually and naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells through the lymphatic system.
