Long-term efficacy follow-up on two cryolipolysis case studies: 6 and 9 years post-treatment
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, sub mental 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. This article follows two patients previously documented in a case report to demonstrate their ongoing treatment efficacy at 6 and 9 years after treatment. Clinical photographs of the treated flanks and untreated contralateral controls demonstrate long-term durability in these two subjects.
