What is Crylipolysis and How Does it Reduce Fat?
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. In fact, cosmetic surgery, primarily the one involving the removal of fat, is already a billion dollar industry.
However, if you’re one of those who are desperate to lose that excess fat in your body and get a slimmer figure but does not have the courage to go under the knife, there is a new and rather interesting 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 since the procedure is classified as non-invasive, it only means it doesn’t cause any pain to the patient.
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. It later was observed by dermatologists that the fat cells subjected or exposed to cold eventually were destroyed. 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.
Additionally, another important benefit of cryolipolysis is that the patient won’t be subjected to any kind of harm because there is no risk of damage to the skin cells or tissue. There will be no use of anesthesia or even needles. 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 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 it is worthy of mention that some patients can attest that they are fully satisfied with the full results of the first treatment, which means some don’t really need a second 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.
