The Fat Removal 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. 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. Unlike typical surgical procedures to reduce fat, this one is safer and does not involve any invasive procedure. 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. 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. 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.
Moreover, cryolipolysis is beneficial to the patient because it does not harm or cause any damage to the skin cells or tissues. What’s even more interesting is that there really is no need for the use of needles or any kind of anesthesia. 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.
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. 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.
