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. As a matter of fact, it’s safe to bet that it’s 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. 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 when a procedure is non-invasive, it also usually means that it is painless.
The first machine built for cryolipolysis was given approval by the FDA for the use in fat layer reduction in September 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. 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.
It may be true that cryolipolysis will take a couple of months for results to be visible, but the most important thing of all is that the entire procedure is 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.
Moreover, cryolipolysis is beneficial to the patient because it does not harm or cause any damage to the skin cells or tissues. 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. 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.
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.
