What is Crylipolysis and How Does it Reduce Fat?
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. 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. 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 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. Dermatologists observed that when the fat cells are put through cold exposure, it tends to induce inflammation and eventually, destruction of the fat cells. 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.
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. 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. 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, patients who were subjected to this treatment experienced fat reduction by about 20%. There is no denying that surgery is able to provide a faster and more immediate fat reduction result, but what’s great about this procedure is that it is additive, which means the patient can have another treatment after just two months down the line. 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.
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.
