BACKGROUND: Increasing demand for non-invasive skin tightening and body contouring procedures has led to several technological in- novations in energy-based devices such as ultrasound, radiofrequency and cryolipolysis. An emerging trend in the eld is to evaluate whether combination therapies for skin laxity/body contouring using energy-based devices can deliver superior clinical results and patient satisfaction. As such, the objective of this prospective, internal-controlled, blind clinical study was to assess the safety and efficacy of cryolipolysis followed by multipolar radiofrequency with pulsed electromagnetic elds (PEMF) and adjustable pulsed suction for the treatment of skin laxity in the flanks...

BACKGROUND: Body sculpting, or body contouring, is among the fastest growing areas in cosmetic dermatology. Cryolipolysis, or "fat freezing," was FDA-cleared (CoolSculpting System, ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Pleasanton, CA) initially in 2010 for fat removal of the anks, and subsequently received FDA-clearance for other anatomical locations. Over the past several years, there have been increasing published reports and physician discussion regarding paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) post-cryolipolysis, previously identified as a "rare" adverse effect...

There have been many recent and significant innovations to the cosmetic physician's repertoire for addressing excess submental fat and improving patients' neck contour. These new techniques include submental cryolipolysis, injectable chemical lipolysis, percutaneous radiofrequency, laser techniques, and liposuction with or without laser or power assistance. These modalities range from completely non-invasive to surgical procedures. Each technique has its own unique advantages, and limitations and as such, aesthetic practitioners should be familiar with the various indications to use each technique...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Regarding previous problems in conventional liposuction methods, the need for development of new fat removal operations was appreciated. In this study we are going to simulate one of the novel methods, cryolipolysis, aimed to tackle those drawbacks. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We think that simulation of clinical procedures contributes considerably in efficacious performance of the operations. To do this we have attempted to simulate temperature distribution in a sample fat of the human body...

Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive technique of localized fat reduction. Controlled cold exposure is performed in the selective destruction of fat cells. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of cryolipolysis on adipocytes elimination through histological and sonographic analyses. This study reports the case of a 46-year-old female patient, with complaint of localized abdominal fat and in the preoperative period of abdominoplasty. The patient was submitted to a single 60-minute application of cryolipolysis, temperature of -5°C, on the hypogastrium area, 5 cm below the umbilicus...

INTRODUCTION: The shape and contour of the chin and neck play an important role in facial esthetics. As such, excess fat within the submental area (double chin) can negatively affect facial esthetics and body image. Common treatments for submental contouring include invasive procedures such as surgical rejuvenation and targeted liposuction. Energy devices (lasers, radiofrequency, and ultrasound) may be used to improve submental skin laxity while cryolipolysis was recently cleared in the United States for use in the submental area...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The growing demand for a youthful appearance, including a favorable body shape, has motivated recent developments in noninvasive body contouring techniques. Our aim was to investigate the efficacy and safety of a new version of a 4D handpiece-mounted cooling device for cryolipolysis with or without tumescent injections. METHODS: We conducted a side-by-side comparative study using two female porcine models. Two areas of each pig's left abdomen were treated using a conventional device and the new cooling device, and two areas of the right abdomen were also treated using the conventional and new cooling device, but both were combined with tumescent-solution injections...

Cryolipolysis, an aesthetic procedure that reduces adipose tissue by exposure to cold temperature, is generally well tolerated with mild side effects including temporary numbness, erythema, and tenderness. However, as cryolipolysis is gaining popularity and more treatments are being performed, reports of rare adverse events including delayed onset pain and paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) have been described. Recent studies have suggested that PAH can be more common than expected and have a predilection for males, as a disproportionate number of the cases reported in the literature have occurred in men despite the fact that fewer men are likely to be treated with cryolipolysis...

BACKGROUND: The burden of obesity and diet-related chronic diseases is increasing in Iran, and prevention and treatment strategies are needed to address this problem. The aim of this study was to determine the outcome, cost, safety and cost-consequence of non-invasive weight loss interventions in Iran. METHODS: We performed a systematic review to compare non-invasive interventions (cryolipolysis and radiofrequency/ ultrasonic cavitation) with semi-invasive (lipolysis) and invasive (liposuction)...

Cryolipolysis is a noninvasive esthetic procedure that utilizes controlled cooling to reduce subcutaneous fat. Clinical studies have established its safety, efficacy, and tolerability for fat reduction in a variety of areas including the abdomen, flanks, thighs, submental area, arms, back, and chest. Because of obvious esthetic concerns, long-term unilateral studies leaving an untreated flank, thigh, or arm are not performed, but serve as ideal controls for weight gain or loss or re-distribution of fat for other reasons...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Cryolipolysis is a safe, effective non-surgical procedure to reduce fat. For most cryolipolysis treatments, tissue is pulled between parallel cooling plates with a treatment duration of 60 minutes. A novel contoured cup, medium-sized applicator was developed to increase tissue contact with reduced skin tension and reduced treatment time. This prototype contoured cup was investigated with a standard cryolipolysis applicator to evaluate safety, efficacy, and patient preference...

Cryolipolysis treatment is a non-invasive option for localized fat reduction without damaging the surrounding tissue. Clinical studies about cryolipolysis show various side effects, including temporary erythema, bruising, and transient numbness. But, no reports are available on motor nerve malfunction after cryolipolysis. A 24-year-old female received cryolipolysis treatment on abdomen, both arms. After 10 days, patient complained of weakness and inability to lift heavy objects. Symptoms continued for 6 months, and fully recovered without treatment...

BACKGROUND: Aging of the neck is characterized by changes that include skin dyspigmentation, laxity, rhytides, loss of the mandibular contour, widening of the cervicomental angle, accumulation of submental fat, volume loss and prominence of the platysmal bands. Many cosmetic options exist to address these changes individually, but little literature exists about the safety and efficacy of combining such procedures and devices. OBJECTIVE: To review the existing literature and the authors' experience in safely and effectively combining aesthetic rejuvenation modalities for the neck...

This report reviews the case of a 55-year-old woman who suffered frostbite while attempting a 'do-it-yourself' version of cryolipolysis without the guidance of a medical professional. Cryolipolysis is a well-understood process through which the careful application of below-freezing temperatures is used to induce adipose cell death while sparing the skin, reducing body fat. This patient used dry ice in lieu of professional medical equipment, resulting in 4% total body surface area full- and partial-thickness wounds to her abdomen...

The publications in the field of aesthetic dermatology including those related to laser treatment and related procedures are numerous. Nevertheless, a large number of them lack a serious and well-structured methodological approach or are biased and may lead to false conclusion due to conflict of interest. The selection of the publications used for this review, while subjective, has been based on the strength of the methodology applied as well as their benefit to the dermatological community as a whole. The themes evaluated in this review are the following: injections of botulinum toxin, male ageing skin, complications after aesthetic procedures, innovative therapeutic advanced treatment in aesthetic, laser therapies cryolipolysis and photodynamic therapy...
