Treatment for body contouring and cellulite using the latest technology: Cryolipolisis

The first clinically proven non-invasive treatment that combines fat freezing ( Cryolipolysis) with acoustic shock therapy for the removal of localized fat and the reduction of all grades of cellulite.

The pain Free alternative to Liposuction without any downtime.

ProShock Ice™ utilizes a patented and innovative technology called ‘ ICE-SHOCK-LIPOLYSIS™ which was developed in Italy in 2012 by PromoItalia and has been widely used throughout the world especially in Europe , Russia and Asia. There are now over 1500 clinics throughout the world offering this treatment . Medikas Clinic was one of the first clinics in the UK to offer this clinically proven treatment.

ProShock Ice™ incorporates a combination of two technologies, working in a synergistic manner in order to address both unwanted fibrous fat and cellulite or both.

Technology 1 – Ice-Lipolysis™ ( Cryo-lipolysis )

Cryolipolysis was developed in USA in 2008 following the discovery of the ‘popsicle effect’ , where children continually sucking on ice popscicles were noted to be losing the fat volume in their cheeks. From this observation it has been shown that fat cells exposed to freezing down to -5C were susceptible to the cold which induces a phenomen known as ‘ Apoptosis ‘ or programmed cell death resulting in the permanent loss of the fat cell, without damaging the surrounding tissues including the skin and nerves which are not damaged unless the temperature drops below -8C. In the UK now there a number of devices utilizing this technology to permanently remove fat and offer an effective alternative to more invasive liposuction, including ProShock Ice™.

Technology 2 – Shock Therapy ™

Unlike any other device in the UK , ProShock Ice, also combines the use of high pressure acoustic waves within the treatment. This technology speeds up the process of Apoptosis or fat cell death by rupturing the fat cell membrane and improving the blood and lymphatic circulation to help the body safely eliminate the fat released from the damaged fat cells. This often results in an immediate and measurable reduction in the subcutaneous fat, unlike other devices which rely only on apoptosis which can take up to 3 months to have a full effect.
Acoustic Shock Therapy™ also breaks down the fibrous tissue within cellulite and and improves the circulation within the fat tissues, smoothing and firming to effectively eliminate cellulite permanently. No other Cryo-Lipolysis system currently available can treat both excess fat and cellulite as effectively.

What areas can be treated with ProShock Ice™?

Ice-Shock-Lipolysis is a very effective treatment for both men and women who have areas of localized fat which they are unable to loose through diet and exercise but have a normal or slightly high BMI ( Body Mass Index ) , the same indication for patients who would benefit from liposuction. It is not a treatment for obesity. Ideal areas to treat are the abdomen , flanks, upper chest in men , thighs and calf. For cellulite, treatment can be tailored if needed to just smooth and flatten the skin without removing fat in very slim women
How many treatments are needed ?
Usually a course of 4-6 treatments are needed at 10-14 day intervals to achieve the maximum result of up to a 30% reduction in fat as with other cryolipolysis devices. Multiple areas can be safely treated during the same treatment session if needed.

Is the treatment with Proshock Ice painful ?

The treatment is very comfortable and is usually very well tolerated. The cooling effect on the skin induces an anaesthesia and numbness.
Are there any side effects ?
There is often temporary erythema or redness of the skin which last a few hours in most cases but occasionally the skin is more sensitive and the redness can last a number of day. In all cases treated so far patients return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

When will I see results with Proshock?

In most patients there is an immediate and measurable reduction in fat volume due to the acoustic shock therapy rupturing the fat cells. Following each treatment there is a progressive loss of subcutaneous fat. As with other cryolipolysis treatments up to a 30% reduction in fat volume is often seen. With a healthy diet and regular exercise the results can be maintained long term .
How much does it cost ?
Usually a course of 4 to 6 treatments are needed and the price starts from £800 per area of treatment.
