Our process T-C-T-L™, which stands for thermal-cryo-thermal-lipo. It includes the use of focused heat, followed by intense cold, and then heat to the targeted area, all while electromagnetic cavitational shocks are applied. Our research and experience has shown time and again, our process is powerful at successfully destroying fat cells permanently.
How is this different?
What are the advantages of Ice Cave Body Sculpting?
- No surgical incisions are required.
- Procedures are low risk.
- All procedures are outpatient services.
- No sedation or anesthesia required.
- More than one area of the body may be treated in a single session.
- Most people can resume their normal daily activities immediately after treatment.
- Our procedures can be performed on people of all ages.
- No damage to nerve fibers, blood vessels, muscles, or lasting damage to skin in the treatment area.
- Fat cells that have been damaged or destroyed are permanently removed from the body.
- Patients may experience an increase in self-esteem due to an improvement in their appearance.
What are the risks and expectations?
- There is a risk, albeit very rare, that the skin surface may be irregular/not smooth after healing.
- More than one session may be needed to achieve a person’s desired results.
Results may vary.
- Results are not evident immediately. Since fat cells are removed gradually from the body, it can take2 to 4 months to achieve optimal results. Hence, before and after photos and measurements are used to show positive results.
- One rare side effect that may occur is paradoxical adipose hyperplasia. In this rare condition, the size of fat cells increases after our procedures.
- Those who do not change their lifestyle (implement a diet and exercise plan), may lose the positive results they gained from our procedures.
Who are not good candidates for our procedures?
- Patients who are obese or significantly overweight.
- They should not be performed on areas of skin that are cut or injured, contain severe varicose veins, dermatitis, or other skin lesions.
- Our procedures are recommended only for people who are in good general health with no neurologic or orthopedic problems and who are looking for “spot” fat reduction in specific areas on the body.
- Those who have abnormal cold sensitivity or cold intolerance are not suitable candidates.
- Our procedures are not recommended for people who have the following conditions:
- Raynaud’s phenomenon – a rare condition in which cold temperatures can impede blood flow to the fingers and toes.
- Cryoglobulinemia – a type of vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) caused by abnormal proteins that become solid in the presence of cold temperatures.
Paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria – a very rare autoimmune disease in which red blood cells are damaged during exposure to cold.
- Cold urticaria – a rare condition in which the skin develops red, itchy spots (hives) after exposure to cold temperatures.
- Cold agglutinin disease – a rare type of autoimmune hemolytic anemia in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys its own red blood cells. The condition is often triggered or made worse by cold temperatures.
- Other conditions that pose risks include:
- Pregnancy or breast-feeding,
- Nerve disorders, such as diabetic neuropathy,
- Inflammatory skin disorders,
- Skin conditions caused by immune system disorders, such as eczema or psoriasis.
