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. In fact, cosmetic surgery, primarily the one involving the removal of fat, is 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. This alternative comes in the form of cryolipolysis. It can rightfully be called as the perfect alternative to traditional surgery because it is non-invasive, which also means that it is safer and more convenient to go through. And since the procedure is classified as non-invasive, it only means it doesn’t cause any pain to the patient.
The first-ever cryolipolysis machine was approved by the FDA for fat layer reduction back in 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. This happens when they are crystallized because the body naturally gets rid of them via the lymphatic system. To put it in other words, the fat cells in the body targeted by the process will die a natural death.
The truth is that cryolipolysis will take about a couple of months for results to happen, but the thing that most people love 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. The fact is there never is any need for the use of needles or 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, those who subjected themselves to the treatment achieved at least 20% fat reduction. 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. 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.
