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. The fact is it’s already rapidly becoming 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. This alternative comes in the form of 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. Dermatologists observed that when the fat cells are put through cold exposure, it tends to induce inflammation and eventually, destruction of the fat cells. The thing is when fat cells are crystallized, the body will then naturally eliminate it using 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. As a matter of fact, cryolipolysis is simply the tool used to start the process and the body eventually does 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. 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%. 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. However, some patients don’t really need a second session or treatment because they already are quite satisfied with the first.
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.
