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. In fact, cosmetic surgery, primarily the one involving the removal of fat, is already a billion dollar industry.
However, if you’re one of those who are desperate to lose that excess fat in your body and get a slimmer figure but does not have the courage to go under the knife, there is a new and rather interesting alternative. This alternative comes in the form of cryolipolysis. Unlike typical surgical procedures to reduce fat, this one is safer and does not involve any invasive procedure. 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 patented procedure makes use of cooling technology to target and freeze subcutaneous fat cells, the idea of which is to achieve the state of crystallization. Dermatologists observed that when the fat cells are put through cold exposure, it tends to induce inflammation and eventually, destruction of the fat cells. What happens is that when the fat cells are crystallized, the body will instinctively get rid of them by way of 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. In fact, cryolipolysis is merely designed to kick start the fat elimination process, while the body does the rest. In other words, the process is so natural and comes with absolutely zero risks.
Additionally, another important benefit of cryolipolysis is that the patient won’t be subjected to any kind of harm because there is no risk of damage to the skin cells or tissue. There will be no use of anesthesia or even needles. The procedure is so calm and comfortable that patients can simply sit, read a book, or even listen to music.
Based on ultrasound results, patients who were subjected to this treatment experienced fat reduction by about 20%. 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. However, some patients don’t really need a second session or treatment because they already are quite satisfied with the first.
Lastly, should you decide to undergo this treatment, it is important that you embrace a healthier lifestyle right after for the results to last.
