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. As a matter of fact, it’s safe to bet that it’s 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 alternative we are talking about is 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 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. The thing is when fat cells are crystallized, the body will then naturally eliminate it using the lymphatic system. To put it in other words, the fat cells in the body targeted by the process will die a 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. In fact, cryolipolysis is merely designed to kick start the fat elimination process, while the body does 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. 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. 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.
But as someone who is intrigued at the idea of undergoing cryolipolysis, you do have to understand that for results to last, you still have to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
