The Benefits of Cryolipolysis
A lot of people turn to painful and very invasive surgeries to get rid of fat, which of course are quite effective considering the fact that there is a lot of pain involved. As a matter of fact, it’s safe to bet that it’s already a billion dollar industry.
But for those who are inching to get a fitter and slimmer figure but aren’t sold with the idea of going under the knife, there’s a new and more convenient alternative. The name of this interesting alternative is cryolipolysis. The best thing about this procedure is that unlike surgery, it is safe and non-invasive. And when a procedure is non-invasive, it also usually means that it is painless.
The first-ever cryolipolysis machine was approved by the FDA for fat layer reduction back in 2010. The procedure is already patented and uses cooling technology to freeze the subcutaneous fat cells in the body, turning them into crystals. It later was observed by dermatologists that the fat cells subjected or exposed to cold eventually were destroyed. The thing is when fat cells are crystallized, the body will then naturally eliminate it using the lymphatic system. Simply put, the fat cells will be subjected to natural death.
The truth is that cryolipolysis will take about a couple of months for results to happen, but the thing that most people love about it is that it is completely safe. In fact, cryolipolysis is merely designed to kick start the fat elimination process, while the body does the rest. To put it in simpler terms, the process couldn’t get more natural than this.
Moreover, cryolipolysis is beneficial to the patient because it does not harm or cause any damage to the skin cells or tissues. The fact is there never is any need for the use of needles or anesthesia. During the procedure, patients are comfortable enough that they can relax in whatever way they can; some even just listen to music or read a book.
According to ultrasound findings, patients who underwent cryolipolysis obtained about 20% fat reduction. It may not be as immediate as a typical surgery, but the interesting thing is that treatments are additive, which means you can follow it up with another session only after a couple of months. But it is worthy of mention that some patients can attest that they are fully satisfied with the full results of the first treatment, which means some don’t really need a second treatment.
Lastly, should you decide to undergo this treatment, it is important that you embrace a healthier lifestyle right after for the results to last.
