The Benefits of Cryolipolysis

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. As a matter of fact, it’s safe to bet that it’s 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-ever cryolipolysis machine was approved by the FDA for fat layer reduction back in 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. 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. 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.

Based on ultrasound results, those who subjected themselves to the treatment achieved at least 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. However, some patients don’t really need a second session or treatment because they already are quite satisfied with the first.

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.
