The purpose of this case study was to assess the efficacy of the Cooltech® system in a cryoadipolysis session for the removal of localized subcutaneous adipose tissue. Prospective, single-center case study conducted at the Fajardo Clinic in Malaga (Spain). All patients underwent one treatment session in the abdomen and flanks with a Cooltech® cryoadipolysis machine (Cocoon Medical, Spain) and two follow-up visits at 4 and 8 weeks. A substudy was conducted, in which the left side of the abdomen and the right flank were treated. Age, abdominal perimeter and thickness of adipose tissue were the variables analyzed through ultrasound. In the substudy, biopsies were taken from the right flank at baseline and after 4 weeks of treatment. Eight patients –six women and two men (one included in the substudy)– with a mean age of 44 years (SD 9.17) and a BMI of 26.88 (SD 2.38) participated. Ultrasound results showed a mean decrease of 15.34% (SD 13.32) in the abdomen area and of 11.03% (SD 25.21) and 4.57% (SD 25.68) in the right and left flanks, respectively. Adipose tissue samples taken from the treated area showed no inflammation or necrosis. Keywords: Cryoadipolysis, cooltech, non-invasive fat removal
