At the freezing point (0ºC or 32ºF), the fluids that bind fat cells crystalize as well. As they begin to die off, the immune system releases cytokines that help eliminate the cells and use their lipids to process and drain them through urination. The body contouring treatments last for roughly 60 minutes and are done manually employing a massage technique. The session begins with 2 minutes of heat and then a prolonged period of...
