Level 4 Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis Course
January 15 - January 16
Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis is the newest form of non-invasive fat reduction without damaging other cells and tissue. Treatment involves controlled cooling of fat tissue through the skin to induce lipolysis through a process known as apoptosis during which the affected fat cells begin to shrink and break down and be naturally metabolised and removed by the lymphatic system, resulting in the reduction of the fat layer. The client will experience a 20 – 25% fat reduction in the treated area from a single session. Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis is most effective on dense fat layers like: flanks (love handles), abdomen, back fat as well as inner thighs and arms. This is not a weight loss treatment or an alternative to surgery, it is an excellent choice for clients, who despite a healthy lifestyle, still have small pockets of fat that just will not respond to diet or exercise.
The Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis Level 4 Course carries 8 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material.
Our Level 4 is suitable for Medical professionals and Aesthetic practitioners and includes a substantial theory component and a two-day practical training session where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams.
In the course, we will cover how to prepare for and carry out Cryotherapy Induced Lipolysis treatments safely, covering necessary legislation, core knowledge and science behind the treatment as well as how best to handle the equipment and maximise treatment results.
In order to graduate from all of our courses, delegates will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare.
