Christie Moey: Combination of Cryolipolysis and Hyperthermic Laser for Non-invasive Body Contouring Treatment
Non-surgical body contouring procedures are rapidly on the rise and are expected to surpass the number of surgical procedures in the years to come. The benefits of non-surgical body tightening include minimal-to-no downtime, fewer side effects and reproducible outcomes. These features of cryolipolysis make it a more favorable option compared to surgical procedures.
The market leading cryolipolysis treatment promises efficacy and patient safety, successfully reducing up to 24% of subcutaneous fat in each treatment. However, there are some limitations worth mentioning when cryolipolysis is used as a single-treatment modality. A few of the major dilemmas encountered with cryolipolysis include difficulty in achieving skin tightening following fat reduction and cellulite reduction. Furthermore, cryolipolysis may not be the most suitable choice of treatment for certain areas of the body.
Combining Long Pulsed Nd:YAG and Er:YAG gently and safely heats up the targeted tissue, promoting tissue remodeling and rejuvenation of the surrounding tissue. Likewise, laser tightens the skin by generating new collagen, resulting in an overall improvement of skin laxity and elasticity in the treated areas. The objective of this clinical case study is to investigate the clinical safety, effectiveness and other benefits of combining cryolipolysis and hyperthermic laser therapy in non-invasive body contouring treatments.
