Z Lipo

It is not uncommon for people to struggle with unwanted fat in problem areas like the flanks, thighs, hips, belly, buttocks, and upper arms. These areas of stubborn fat are often called by various names such as muffin top, love handles, saddle bags, and bat wings. They can be tough to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. Now, it is possible to target fat bulges that persist despite a healthy lifestyle. A quick and easy treatment can permanently get rid of unsightly fat depots and reduce fat bulges. Keep reading to learn more about Zlipo, a cold treatment that can help you achieve your dream figure.

What is Z Lipo? How does it work on fat cells?

The Z Lipo system is an innovative and powerful platform that is used to target fat deposits in common problem areas. The method cools fat deposits. In other words, the device uses very cold temperatures to literally freeze and kill fat cells and reduce fat deposits. This process is known as cryolipolysis. The fatty tissue is exposed to temperatures of -7 degrees Centigrade for 29 minutes which leads to its complete breakdown.

Z Lipo is designed to generate a controlled and safe temperature that destroys fat without harming the surrounding tissue. The destroyed fat cells are then gradually removed by the body's lymphatic drainage. This results in fat reduction in the treated area over the next 10-12 weeks. The fat cells are gone forever, so the results of the cold treatment are permanent, as long as you don't gain a significant amount of weight. In short, with Z Lipo you can easily and painlessly freeze your fat away. The only potential side effect is some temporary mild discomfort, which resembles normal muscle soreness.

Does cryolipolysis really work?

As noted, cryolipolysis treatments target fat depots in problem areas like the thighs, hips, buttocks, belly, flanks, upper arms, and chest (in men). The lipo system freezes fatty tissue while maintaining a safe temperature range for surrounding tissue. The lymphatic system takes the dead fat cells away from the area. This makes cryolipolysis systems such as the Z Lipo system a safe and effective treatment that offers significantly better fat reduction than many other aesthetic body contouring procedures.

Do you lose weight with cryolipolysis?

It is important to understand that Z Lipo is not a weight loss treatment. You will not lose a significant amount of weight with this cosmetic procedure. Z Lipo is meant to sculpt or contour the desired treatment area. This means you will have inch loss and a more shapely silhouette in the treatment area, but when you get on the scales, there may not be much difference before and after treatment.

What's the difference between CoolSculpting and ZLipo fat freezing?

CoolSculpting and Z Lipo both rely on the same underlying principle of cryolipolysis, i.e., freezing adipose tissue and allowing the lymphatic drainage to remove the dead cells, leading to permanently and non invasively reducing fat in problem areas. However, ZLipo has two unique features that make it superior to CoolSculpting.

Z Lipo comes with two applicators. This means two areas of the body can be treated at the same time, greatly reducing treatment time. Each ZLipo session typically lasts 60-90 minutes, so this feature can make the treatments a lot faster.

The second advantage Z Lipo has over CoolSculpting is that it includes a unique pulsating suction mode. The pulsating suction increases the efficacy of complete breakdown of the fat and also stimulates lymphatic drainage.

Z Lipo & ZWavePro Combination Fat Reduction

ZWavePro is a pain free shockwave treatment that can be combined with Z Lipo for even more effective fat reduction in spot areas. Non invasively, this method cools and destroys fat. However, besides targeted removal of fat, it also leads to skin tightening.
