Study on the Effect of Fat Freeze Cryolipolysis on Abdominal Obesity of Women
As part of Wellaholic's Educational Series, we are reviewing the research report on the effectiveness of fat freezing on women. This is based on the case study published in 2017 by Meyer PF and team on US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health.
Summarised from the abstract by Meyer PF and team on Sep 2017 published on US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health. (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/29734405)
The study aims to verify the effectiveness of cryolipolysis in the reduction of localized adiposity (obesity) in women. Adiposity: a condition of being severely overweight, or obese. There also is a measurement of body fat used by some researchers known as the body adiposity index (BAI). Unlike the BMI, weight is not taken to account in the BAI, which is based on a person's height and hip circumference.
A group of 15 women, aged between 25 to 50 years were involved in the study.
The fat freeze cryolipolysis was used in the following parameters
--> Temperature -7 degrees
--> Suction power 30 kPa
--> Application time 60 minutes
After the fat freeze cryolipolysis was performed, a follow-up of 2 months was conducted with all the women. This is to verify the changes related to weight, body circumference, fat layer thickness, which were evaluated by ultrasonography and photogrammetry. The aim was to obtain an accurate reading of the before and after measurements in order to validate the effectivenss of fat freeze for the test subjects.
From data analysis, the reductions observed on perimeter (p=0.03) and ultrasonography (p=0.03) showed significant results, considering p <0.05. As of body weight results (p=0.57), the average value varied during the study; however, at the end of the research, no significant weight increase or decrease was reported, as it is known that this method does not interfere with this variable. Additionally, quantitative data were satisfactory. The photogrammetry analysis showed that cryolipolysis positively affected subjects' results.
A change in body contouring, especially in individuals with lower body mass, reinforces the idea that the parameters must be suitable for individual needs.
This recent study reinforces the positive effects of cryolipolysis or fat freeze on women with adiposity. Significant results in the fat tissue perimeter were noted. However, adjust the appropriate parameters for the client is crucial in achieving the best effects for the customer. As Wellaholic adopts the same body contouring techniques as this study, we believe that a regular WellaFreeze fat freeze regime, between three to five times, will improve the results.
