The Cold That Reduces Fat Deposits Upto 45%

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the benefits of Criocuum?

Criocuum treatments reduce unwanted subcutaneous fat using the technology of controlled chilling. An adjustable vacuum applicator is used to selectively chill fatty tissue, causing cell apoptosis.

Anyone with a build-up of localised fat with a BMI of lower than 29 is a good candidate for the Criocuum procedure.

2. How many sessions are required?

The number of sessions required will vary from 1 to 3, with an interval between sessions of 6 or 8 weeks, depending on the level of localised fat in the area.

During the consultation process, the treatment clinician will create a personalised plan designed to achieve the desired objectives from the treatment series.

3. What happens during treatment?

The applicator is placed over the treatment zone to initiate the crioliporeduction process, which suctions the fatty tissue up into the cavity of the hand piece while applying intense cold temperatures ranging between 5°C to as low as -10°C.

4. What does it feel like?

For the first 5-10 minutes of the treatment, the client will feel intense cold that wears off quickly as the area becomes numb from the cold. The majority of Cryolipolysis clients describe sessions as comfortable and can still do other activities like read, listen to music or even have a nap during treatments. Clients can also choose to combine other treatments, such as skin corrective services, with their Cryolipolysis session.

5. How long does the treatment last?

Treatments generally last between 40 and 65 minutes.

6. When will the results be visible?

Clients will begin to see results from 15 days following the first treatment, with the full effect visible generally 8-12 weeks after the session.

7. Is any recovery time necessary?

Criocuum is non-invasive and involves no downtime, leaving clients free to get on with their daily life straight away.


Trim | Tone | Contour

Criocuum is an innovative technology from Termosalud that uses the proven, non-invasive crioliporeduction technique to eliminate fatty subcutaneous tissue by applying cold to the targeted area.

Criocuum selectively isolates and chills fat deposits on a range of problem areas that can be difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone, including:

Criocuum is based on the crioliporeduction principles of fat removal, which engages adjustable cold temperatures applied to the treatment area to isolate and chill fatty subcutaneous tissue to the point of destruction. Case studies show an average reduction of fatty tissue between 3mm and 15mm, or up to 45% of the fatty tissue present for a visibly trimmer, contoured appearance.

Treatment Zones

Criocuum targets the most common problem areas of unwanted, stubborn pockets of fat that can be difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone. By using interchangeable vacuum applicators tailored to suit the treatment area, Criocuum non-invasively trims, tones and contours the:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Back
  • Waistline
  • Hips
The Way Cryoliporeduction Works

Cryoplioreduction consists of applying cold to fatty tissue, in a controlled way and for a specific amount of time. Several clinical studies have shown that subjecting a specific part of the body with accumulated fat to intense cold produces the inflammation of the subcutaneous fatty tissue and increases the basal metabolism, thereby managing to destroy the adipocytes or fat cells.

The cell apoptosis occurs as a result of the CRYSTALLISATION of the lipids of the fat cells. Within a specific temperature range (between 0ºC and 10ºC) the fat solidifies and crystallises, while the other tissues that contain water do not crystallise and, therefore, are not damaged.

The cell apoptosis gets rid of functional abnormal cells and surplus normal cells, which is essential for the body’s correct functioning. In this case the elimination takes place naturally.

This technique is the only one that destroys the adipocyte without surgery, using apoptosis, therefore the volume eliminated from the treated area is not regained.
