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. As a matter of fact, it’s safe to bet that it’s already 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. Unlike typical surgical procedures to reduce fat, this one is safer and does not involve any invasive procedure. And when a procedure is non-invasive, it also usually means that it is painless.
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. 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. Simply put, the fat cells will be subjected to 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. In fact, cryolipolysis is merely designed to kick start the fat elimination process, while the body does 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. 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.
According to ultrasound findings, patients who underwent cryolipolysis obtained about 20% fat reduction. 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.
Lastly, should you decide to undergo this treatment, it is important that you embrace a healthier lifestyle right after for the results to last.
