The 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. 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. The alternative we are talking about is 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 patented procedure makes use of cooling technology to freeze the body’s subcutaneous fat cells, allowing them to turn 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. In other words, the fat cells will die a 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. In other words, the process is so natural and comes with absolutely zero risks.

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. The procedure is so calm and comfortable that patients can simply sit, read a book, or even listen to music.

According to ultrasound findings, patients who underwent cryolipolysis obtained about 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. However, some patients don’t really need a second session or treatment because they already are quite satisfied with the first.

Lastly, should you decide to undergo this treatment, it is important that you embrace a healthier lifestyle right after for the results to last.
