Cryolipolysis with Clatuu™ Alpha
(Fat away with cold)

Cryolipo, lipo-cryo, lipocryolysis, cryolipolysis, are all names for a proven procedure to reduce localized fat deposits using cold. At the ono estetika clinics, we use the ClatuuTM Alpha, the latest technical development in the field of cryolipolysis. With this process, cooling no longer takes place only between 2 plates, but the entire applicator is cooled regularly and completely. This increases the cooled fat volume and produces excellent results.

It has been known for a long time (1966) that prolonged exposure of fat deposits to cold can lead to a breakdown of fatty tissue (see literature references). The idea of using this fact to reduce localized fat deposits, e.g. on the abdomen or hips, by applying cold has been clinically researched by American doctors. An American company then developed the first device for clinical use.

Treatment procedure

First, the fat pads are marked and the corresponding areas are measured and photographed. You can therefore track the success of the treatment after the second measurement during the follow-up check.

The fat deposits are then drawn into a cooling device (a type of cupping device) using a vacuum and cooled for an hour. Prolonged, controlled exposure to cold (45-65 min. depending on the thickness of the fat layer) causes the fatty acids in the cells to crystallize. As a result, these fat cells lose their viability (a process known as apoptosis occurs). Other body cells such as skin and muscle cells are much less sensitive to cold and are not damaged. The dead fat cells are broken down in a slow process by the body's own "scavenger cells". This process takes 2-3 months. Therefore, the final result of a treatment is only visible after this time. A reduction in volume of 20-30% is achieved with just one treatment

Once the cold cycle is complete, you can resume normal activity unhindered.

It is important with cryolipolysis that the fat layer is cooled sufficiently, but the skin surface is not cooled too much to avoid cold damage. The ClatuuTM Alpha system ensures this with precise internal measurement controls. (Do not experiment with cooling elements from the freezer; this will only lead to frostbite!)

This treatment is ideal for smaller fat deposits on the stomach, hips, upper arms and thighs, which are difficult to reduce with diet alone. The ClatuuTM Alpha is also ideal for treating saddlebags or a double chin. But beware: cryolipolysis is not a weight loss method.
