The Benefits of Cryolipolysis
Today, it’s no longer a secret how popular surgeries are when it comes to getting rid of excess fat in the body. The fact is it’s already rapidly becoming 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 alternative we are talking about is cryolipolysis. The best thing about this procedure is that unlike surgery, it is safe and non-invasive. And considering that the procedure is non-invasive, it is safe to bet that it also does not involve any pain.
The first machine built for cryolipolysis was given approval by the FDA for the use in fat layer reduction in September 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. This happens when they are crystallized because the body naturally gets rid of them via the lymphatic system. To put it in other words, the fat cells in the body targeted by the process will die a natural death.
Yes, it’s true that cryolipolysis will take about two months for results to be seen, but the best thing about it is that it is completely safe. As a matter of fact, cryolipolysis is simply the tool used to start the process and the body eventually does the rest. In other words, the process is so natural and comes with absolutely zero risks.
Furthermore, unlike surgery or any other invasive procedure, there is zero damage to the patient’s skin cells or tissues. What’s even more interesting is that there really is no need for the use of needles or any kind of 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. There is no denying that surgery is able to provide a faster and more immediate fat reduction result, but what’s great about this procedure is that it is additive, which means the patient can have another treatment after just two months down the line. 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.
But as someone who is intrigued at the idea of undergoing cryolipolysis, you do have to understand that for results to last, you still have to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
