What is Crylipolysis and How Does it Reduce Fat?
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.
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 name of this interesting alternative 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 cryolipolysis was approved by the FDA in September of 2010 for the purpose of fat layer reduction. 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. What happens is that when the fat cells are crystallized, the body will instinctively get rid of them by way of the lymphatic system. To put it in other words, the fat cells in the body targeted by the process 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. The fact is cryolipolysis is just a tool intended to kick start the process, while the body is responsibility for doing the rest. The truth is there really is no risk since the process is so natural.
Furthermore, unlike surgery or any other invasive procedure, there is zero damage to the patient’s skin cells or tissues. There will be no use of anesthesia or even needles. 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. 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.
