The 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. In fact, cosmetic surgery, primarily the one involving the removal of fat, is already a billion dollar industry.
However, not everyone is sold on the idea of going under the knife just to get rid of excess fat; but the good news for them is that there’s a far safer and quite intriguing 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 cryolipolysis was approved by the FDA in September of 2010 for the purpose of fat layer reduction. 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. Accordingly, dermatologists realized that when fat cells are subjected to the cold, they eventually are destroyed. What happens is that when the fat cells are crystallized, the body will instinctively get rid of them by way of the lymphatic system. Simply put, the fat cells will be subjected to 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. The fact is cryolipolysis is just a tool intended to kick start the process, while the body is responsibility for doing the rest. The truth is there really is no risk since the process is so natural.
Furthermore, unlike surgery or any other invasive procedure, there is zero damage to the patient’s skin cells or tissues. There will be no use of anesthesia or even needles. In the entirety of the procedure, patients find themselves very relaxed to a point that some of them don’t really have to worry and simply read a book or listen to music.
According to ultrasound findings, patients who underwent cryolipolysis obtained about 20% fat reduction. It can’t be denied that surgery is better in terms of providing immediate results, but one thing you need to understand about cryolipolysis is that once you subject yourself to the procedure, you can follow it up after just a few months for a more substantial result. But then again, some patients are willing to attest that they no longer need a second treatment after getting satisfied with full results in the first treatment.
Finally, if you plan on getting this fat reduction treatment, it is still important that you maintain a healthy lifestyle later on for results to last.
