The Fat Removal Benefits of Cryolipolysis
It’s no secret that when it comes to getting rid of excess fat in the body, going under the knife has become somewhat of a popular trend. 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 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-ever cryolipolysis machine was approved by the FDA for fat layer reduction back in 2010. The patented procedure makes use of cooling technology to freeze the body’s subcutaneous fat cells, allowing them to turn 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. In other words, the fat cells 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. To put it in simpler terms, the process couldn’t get more natural than this.
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, those who subjected themselves to the treatment achieved at least 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.
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.
