About Stubborn Fat

stubborn fat

Whether it’s on your hips, thighs, double chin or tummy, stubborn fat is an annoyance at the best of times. In most cases, it’s the product of our genetics, hormones or dietary habits.

If you are struggling to lose weight through diet and exercise and have given up due to lack of visible results, you may be the right candidate for Cristal Medical Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing). It is the new non-surgical body contouring treatment, which is safe and has permanent effects. Both the medical world as well as the media are raving about this procedure, which has minimal downtime, as best-suited for the modern lifestyle.

Cristal Medical Cryolipolysis, is the technique of freezing and, thereby, destroying the fat cells. The frozen fat cells,
which are shrunken and destroyed, are eventually removed from the body by its natural processes. The number of fat cells in an adult human remains constant unless they are removed. It is the excessive fat stored in the fat cells by the body, which contributes to the weight gain of the person.

Weight loss through controlled diet and exercise does not destroy the fat cells in the body. It just shrinks them temporarily. These cells can grow back to their original size again later if weight is put on. Cristal, on the other hand, destroys the fat cells through the application of controlled cooling at the targeted area of the body. These frozen fat cells never grow back and are completely removed from the body.


This treatment is ideal for reducing fat in those areas of your body that do not respond to diet and exercise like abdomen, thighs, upper arm, flank, etc. The following are some of the things to know before you opt for Cristal:

  1. It is FDA approved, safe and non-invasive treatment.
  2. It causes minimal discomfort and does not require anaesthesia. Many patients watch videos or listen to music during the procedure.
  3. A trained practitioner works in one area of the body at a session. Each session may last an hour. Some areas may need more than one sitting to freeze all the fat cells.
  4. There is minimal downtime. Most patients return to work the very same day. The sensitivity, redness, and cramps in the area of the procedure will go away within a couple of days. The practitioner massages the target area after the treatment, to help it recover faster.
  5. It takes up to 4 weeks to begin to observe some results of the treatment. For most patients, it may take up to 12 weeks to see visible and optimal results.
