Definition & Overview

Cryo Sculpt is a popular non-invasive body sculpting solution designed to give aesthetic salons & practitioners the complete portfolio into slimming & body Contouring.

Cryo Sculpt takes advantage of combining the 3 proven technology concepts.

  • Cryogenic Lipolysis
  • Ultrasound Cavitation
  • Radio Frequency

The combination of the technology covers various treatments including, Cryogenic Lipolysis (Cryolipolysis, Fat Freeze), Body Contouring, Slimming, Skin Tightening, Elasticity Restoration, Increase Metabolism, Promote Collagen Regeneration as well as Wrinkle Removal.

Cryogenic Lipolysis (Cryolipolysis/Fat Freeze)

Cryolipolysis is a medical procedure of destroying and eliminating fat cells with the use of freezing temperatures. The process, also known as fat freezing, causes death to subcutaneous fat tissue without damaging the overlying skin and nearby body parts.

Cryo Sculpt devices offer non-surgical fat reduction treatments, a non-invasive alternative to liposuction – perfect for those who are needle phobic and want to avoid the risks associated with this type of surgery.

Frozen fat dissolving uses the triglycerides in human fat to be converted into solids at a low temperature of -5  to -9℃.

The frozen energy accurately controlled by the non-invasive freezing energy extraction device is transmitted to the designated fat dissolving part to eliminate the adipocytes in the designated part. After the adipocytes in the designated part are cooled to a specific low temperature, the triglyceride is transformed from liquid to solid. After crystallization and aging, they die one after another and are discharged from the body through the metabolism. The number of fat cells in the body gradually decreases, so as to achieve the desired body shape.

How is the Procedure Performed?

The Cryo Sculpt has 5 x Interchangeable cryogenic applicators for treating various areas.

The Cryo Sculpt procedure does not require anaesthesia or sedatives, which means that patients are awake and responsive throughout the entire process. The patient is asked to lie down while the Therapist locates the areas with stubborn fat tissue deposits. These areas are then marked and a cooling applicator with a specially designed cup is used to extract energy from the target fat tissue using vacuum pressure. The cooling process uses temperatures of around -5 to – 9 degrees Celsius and triggers a natural immune response that eventually kills the fat cells. The patient will feel intense cold during the first few minutes and complete comfort for the duration of the treatment. The targeted area is then massaged after treatment. The destroyed fat cells are eventually flushed out of the body in the following months.

The whole procedure could require one to 3 sessions, depending on the location and size of the fat tissue deposits that have to be removed.


Ultrasound Cavitation

1 x 40 KHz to 8o KHz

Ultrasonic or ultrasound cavitation is the use of ultrasound technology to break down fat cells below the skin. It is a non-surgical method of reducing cellulite and localized fat.

This procedure involves applying pressure on fat cells through ultrasonic vibrations. The pressure is high enough to make the fat cells break down into a liquid form. The body can then get rid of it as waste through your urine.

The broken-down fat cells go from the body to the liver where they are excreted as waste. This method of treatment is used along with other weight loss programs to help with getting rid of excessive fat. It is a preferred method to other invasive procedures of eliminating body fat. It is important to note that your weight could return if you consume a high- calorie diet.

Cryo Sculpt Ultrasound Cavitation Technology

Cryo Sculpt Ultrasonic cavitation tones the body using low-frequency ultrasonic waves. These waves form bubbles around fat deposits under the skin. The bubbles then burst, breaking the fat deposits into the interstitial and the lymphatic systems where they are drained. The fat deposits are changed into glycerol and free fatty acids. Glycerol is then reused by the body while free fatty acids travel to the liver and are excreted as waste.

Cryo Sculpt  Radio Frequency (RF)

1 x 5 MHz Facial Tripolar Applicator

1 X 10 MHz Body Tripolar Applicator

Collagen is the most common protein in your body. It creates the framework of your skin and gives your skin its firmness.

As you age, your cells produce less collagen, which leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. Skin laxity occurs around age 35 to 40 when the quantity and quality of your collagen begins to decline.

RF therapy has been used since 2001 to fight against sagging skin and signs of aging.

Each type of technology works the same way. RF waves heat the deep layer of your skin to between 122 and 167°F (50–75°C).

Maintaining a temperature over 115°F (46°C) for over 3 minutes causes your body to release heat-shock proteins. These proteins stimulate your body to create new collagen fibers.

The procedure normally takes less than an hour and should be nearly painless.

What are radio frequency waves?

RF waves are a form of radiation. Radiation is the release of energy in the form of electromagnetic waves.

It can be classified as low energy or high energy depending on the amount of energy released. X-rays and gamma rays are examples of high energy radiation while RF waves are considered low energy.

Radio waves, Wi-Fi and microwaves are all forms of RF waves.

The form of radiation used in RF skin tightening releases about 1 billion times less energy than X-rays.

Cryo Sculpt RF Advantages

The primary benefits of RF therapy are tightening your skin and getting rid of wrinkles.

There Are Various other benefits of the Cryo Sculpt RF

  1. Fighting sun damage

Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause the collagen fibers in your skin to  break down and become disorganized. Due to its ability to stimulate the production of collagen, RF therapy may also help fight sun damage.

  1. Body contouring


RF therapy may help tighten loose skin on your body by stimulating the production of collagen.

  1. Face contouring

RF achieves excellent facial contouring and defining jaw lines.

  1. Wrinkles and fine lines

RF therapy tested on 70 middle-aged women on wrinkles around the eyes, found that three treatments over 6 weeks significantly reduced their wrinkles.

  1. RF for face slimming

RF treatment has the potential to be used as a nonsurgical method of slimming your face.

The only side effect observed was mild redness several hours after the procedure.
