Interesting facts about ClatuuTM

What’s the functional principle of cryolipolysis with ClatuuTM Alpha? How does cryolipolysis work?

The fact that fatty tissue can be reduced by cold has been known for a while: in 1966, reports revealed that the cheek fat in children who consume large amounts of water ice regresses. In 1980, a study was published to verify the fact that cold impacts were able to reduce the fatty issue in the thighs of female equestrians.

An extended and controlled exposure to the cold (45 to 60 minutes, depending on the fat layer’s thickness) causes the fatty acids contained by the cells to crystallize. These fat cells thus forfeit their viability (so-called apoptosis). Other body cells like dermal and muscle cells are clearly less sensitive to cold and thus not affected by it.

Within the scope of a slow process, the dead fat cells are decomposed by endogenous scavenger cells. This will take 2 to 3 months. Consequently, the treatment’s final result will not become obvious before the respective time has passed by. ClatuuTM Alpha achieves particularly good results because the special applicator facilitates full and consistent cooling of the fat tissue.
