The Benefits of Cryolipolysis

A lot of people turn to painful and very invasive surgeries to get rid of fat, which of course are quite effective considering the fact that there is a lot of pain involved. 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. 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 when a procedure is non-invasive, it also usually means that it is painless.

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. 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. Simply put, the fat cells will be subjected to 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. 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.

Furthermore, unlike surgery or any other invasive procedure, there is zero damage to the patient’s skin cells or tissues. The fact is there never is any need for the use of needles or anesthesia. During the procedure, patients are comfortable enough that they can relax in whatever way they can; some even just listen to music or read a book.

Based on ultrasound results, patients who were subjected to this treatment experienced fat reduction by about 20%. It may not be as immediate as a typical surgery, but the interesting thing is that treatments are additive, which means you can follow it up with another session only after a couple of months. 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.
