Cryo Body Sculpting Santa Monica
Freeze away unwanted fat from stubborn areas!
Body Sculpting is a non-surgical procedure, which utilizes the latest in cryo technology to smooth, firm and shape your body.
With more and more patients looking for non-surgical or less invasive treatments that target the body’s fat and improve your body’s contours, Modern Aesthetica is proud to offer Cryo body sculpting, which is a non-surgical alternative to abdominoplasty that does not involve excision or breaching of the skin, resulting in fast recovery time.
Cryo body sculpting, or controlled cold lipolysis, refers to an innovative body contouring treatment that uses localized cooling to breakdown adipocytes and effectively reduce subcutaneous fat.
How It Works
During the treatment, our physicians will use specialized equipment to cool down targeted fat deposits to 7 - 10°C. This will result in the formation of “lipid ice”, which is the equivalent of water forming ice at 0°C, effectively destroying fat cells with minimal effect on surrounding tissues.
Cryolipolysis uses vacuum-pressure devices that draw adipose tissue and skin – in the target area - into a special applicator cup that features thermistors to ensure that the temperature drop in the fat layer drops below 10°C so it freezes. To achieve this temperature, the skin may need to be cooled to -5°C.
The targeted cold treatment essentially removes energy and causes the apoptosis (natural, controlled cell death) of fat cells, which leads to the release of inflammatory mediators (such as cytokines) that gradually digest targeted fat cells over the following weeks and months, ultimately destroying them and reducing the thickness of the of the fat layer.
The natural and complete breakdown and removal of fat cells via the lymphatic system takes between 8 and 12 weeks.
Cryolipolysis starts when your physician places the applicator on the treatment area and cooling commences.
Fat cells in the target area react immediately to the cooling for a specific duration.
After treatment, the fat cells are processed and eliminated naturally by your body via the lymphatic system
You will experience numbness for several days. You achieve the desired final result in 8 to 12 weeks.

How Safe is Cryo Body Sculpting?
The cooling effect is controlled for a period of about 60 minutes, so there’s no risk of frostbite or cold injury to surrounding tissues. Moreover, a special fleece is placed on the treatment area to prevent skin damage during treatment.
Cryo contouring has revolutionized the way surgeons tackle body contouring. For most people, one treatment is enough to deliver permanent body contouring, but you need to maintain steady body weight for long-lasting results.
