An overview of body sculpting in medical aesthetic practice using cryolipolysis

An overview of body sculpting in medical aesthetic practice using cryolipolysis Aesthetic medicine is growing with tremendous interest in non-surgical facial procedures, such as injectable dermal fillers and neurotoxins. As patients seek facial procedures with no downtime or anaesthesia risks, there is also a growing demand for non-surgical body contouring. Various non-surgical body sculpting technologies are available to aesthetic practitioners, and cryolipolysis is the most well established. Cryolipolysis takes advantage of the inherent susceptibility of adipocytes to cold injury, delivering controlled cooling to damage subcutaneous fat while leaving surrounding structures unharmed. Cryolipolysis can be used to treat various anatomical areas with a range of vacuum applicators to draw in fat or a surface applicator for treating non-pinchable areas, such as ‘saddlebags’ on the outer thighs. As the treatment area is numbed by the cold, patients are able to rest comfortably during the procedure and nurses can provide other treatments such as injectables. Cryolipolysis is safe and effective with high patient-satisfaction and tolerability rates. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Aesthetic Nursing Mark Allen Group

Abstract

Aesthetic medicine is growing with tremendous interest in non-surgical facial procedures, such as injectable dermal fillers and neurotoxins. As patients seek facial procedures with no downtime or anaesthesia risks, there is also a growing demand for non-surgical body contouring. Various non-surgical body sculpting technologies are available to aesthetic practitioners, and cryolipolysis is the most well established. Cryolipolysis takes advantage of the inherent susceptibility of adipocytes to cold injury, delivering controlled cooling to damage subcutaneous fat while leaving surrounding structures unharmed. Cryolipolysis can be used to treat various anatomical areas with a range of vacuum applicators to draw in fat or a surface applicator for treating non-pinchable areas, such as ‘saddlebags’ on the outer thighs. As the treatment area is numbed by the cold, patients are able to rest comfortably during the procedure and nurses can provide other treatments such as injectables. Cryolipolysis is safe and effective with high patient-satisfaction and tolerability rates.
