Oakland Cryo T-Shock. What is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis, often known as fat freezing, is a nonsurgical fat reduction procedure that works by freezing fat deposits in specific body locations.

The procedure should reduce localized fat deposits or bulges that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not recommended for obese or significantly overweight people. The technique has been patented under CoolSculpting, with the enhanced version being Cryo T-Shock and taking over.

What Are Body Areas Suited to Cryolipolysis and Cryo T-Shock?

The Food and Drug Administration has licensed Cryolipolysis to treat fat deposits beneath the chin, upper arms, thighs (inner and outer), belly, hips, upper back, lower back, and beneath the buttocks.

How Does Cryo T-Shock Destroy Fat Cells?

Coolsculpting is based on the technique that fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperature damage than other cells, such as skin cells. The chilly temperature damages the fat cells.

The injury causes the body to respond with an inflammatory reaction, which causes fat cells to die. Cryo T-Shock goes beyond CoolSculpting by shocking the cells with a combination of heat and cold.
