Is it a one-time solution?
Cryolipolysis helps in burning the fat cell. However, it is a must to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Excessive calorie intake could trigger the remaining fats cells to compensate and increase in size. But not to worry here at RxDx we also have nutritionist and dietitians to support you in every step even post the procedure.
