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.
But for those who are inching to get a fitter and slimmer figure but aren’t sold with the idea of going under the knife, there’s a new and more convenient 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-ever cryolipolysis machine was approved by the FDA for fat layer reduction back in 2010. 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. What happens is that when the fat cells are crystallized, the body will instinctively get rid of them by way of the lymphatic system. Simply put, the fat cells will be subjected to 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. The truth is there really is no risk since the process is so natural.
Additionally, another important benefit of cryolipolysis is that the patient won’t be subjected to any kind of harm because there is no risk of damage to the skin cells or tissue. 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 then again, some patients are willing to attest that they no longer need a second treatment after getting satisfied with full results in the first 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.
