If you’re searching for a “cool” way for losing those unwanted love handles then Cryolipolysis is literally and figuratively a simple method to lose fat. Cryolipolysis utilizes targeted cold temperature to disrupt and destroy fat cells, this without the need for invasive surgical procedures.
Cryolipolysis is ideal for hard to remove fat areas where traditional fat losing methods such as diets and exercises have been ineffective. Fat cells which are more susceptible to extremely cold temperatures are destroyed in the process. It is not recommended for people with severe fat problems but was designed to help those who just want to shed those stubborn fat areas for a shapelier body.
The Science behind Cryolipolysis
The FDA has approved the use of Cryolipolysis in reducing fat deposits in the abdominal, thigh and flank areas. It has been proven to be a safe and effective method of shedding those last fat remnants that have been difficult to remove.
Cryolipolysis works behind the science that fat cells are more susceptible to extremely cold temperatures compared to other cells. When these are exposed to cold temperatures it is broken down and eventually eliminated normally by the body.
There are no visible effects seen immediately after the procedure. A slight inflammation over the areas can be experienced as the body attempts to respond to the sudden death of fat cells. Inflammatory cells are sent to the treatment area to remove dead fat cells. Inflammation could be noticed on problem areas which could be a cause of concern for those who are expecting a slight reduction in size. However, this is temporary and the true results of Cryolipolysis could be seen in a few days or a week.
Side effects and Complications
Alternative or non-surgical liposuction treatments use a variety of methods to induce fat loss. These include heat, radio frequencies, acoustic stimulation and cold temperatures. Studies have been done on the safety and side effects of Cryolipolysis. This is because exposure to extreme cold temperatures has been known to cause damage to skin cells. But in the case of Cryolipolysis, no side effects are evident especially when done by a medical professional. Skin cells are directly exposed to cold temperatures but this is done in controlled conditions.
Cryolipolysis is done over a controlled period of time. This eliminates harmful exposure to cold temperatures that is known to cause necrosis or tissue death. A slight discomfort can be experienced but no skin damage is expected.
Cryolipolysis is safe for any skin type. It does not cause any change in skin pigmentation both for dark or light skin types.
How to make Cryolipolysis Effective
Multiple treatments are commonly advised to achieve desired results. This is because Cryolipolysis is only able to remove limited amounts of fat with every procedure. Noticeable loss could also take time because recovery from treatment could take weeks to allow fat cells destroyed to be eliminated naturally from the body. Sticking to a healthy diet and living an active lifestyle is still your best defense and the best way to make Cryolipolysis effective. After all it is your unhealthy lifestyle that got you in trouble in the first place.
