Chances are that you have heard of cryolipolysis and its benefits. Every non-surgical method scientists discover to eliminate body fat soon trends in the aesthetic industry.
Recently, scientists have come up with a treatment that freezes fat cells and eliminates them from the body. The method is called cryolipolysis or fat freezing. A cryolipolysis machine cools your fat to a temperature that removes it while leaving other tissues and your skin unaffected.
About the Procedure
Cryolipolysis is not a surgery and does not involve the use of needles. It is a non-surgical and non-invasive method to remove stubborn body fat.
The cryolipolysis machine comes with an applicator. The doctor holds the applicator with a vacuum to target the body area you want to reduce fat. The vacuum quickly cools, and your doctor will leave them in place for 35 minutes to 1 hour. During that time, the process destroys approximately 20% to 25% of the fat cells in the targeted area.
Your body will eliminate the fat cells in a natural process similar to removing other dead cells.
The final results will not be visible immediately after the process. It will take up to 90 days to see the results of cryolipolysis.
Who Can Get Cryolipolysis?
It should be mentioned here that cryolipolysis is not a weight loss method. It is a treatment of fat loss that targets stubborn fat.
Cryolipolysis is not effective for people whose body has a high accumulation of fat and obesity.
If you have tried weight loss following diet and exercise, cryolipolysis can help you get your body back in shape. Sometimes exercise cannot reduce fat from specific body parts. There may be some stubborn fat on the side of the neck or thigh or the side arms.
Cryolipolysis helps to reduce these fat bulges from the body, giving you a toned structure. This treatment can help to remove fat from body parts, including:
- Under the chin and jawline
- Thighs, including inner and outer thighs
- The sides of the belly, also called the love handle
- Back and sides
- Under the butt
- Along the bra line
- Upper arms
Cryolipolysis is a safe and effective treatment for all healthy individuals. Your doctor will brief you about the procedure, the treatment method, how it works, and if you are ideal for this treatment in the first consultation.
However, a person with the following conditions should avoid this treatment:
- Individuals unable to handle cold
- Pregnant or breastfeeding women
- Individuals with obesity
- Individuals with loose and sagging skin
- Individuals suffering from certain skin conditions
What to Expect After the Treatment?
In most cases, patients have to take two to three sessions. But it depends on individuals and their condition.
You can walk out of the clinic in an hour or two. Recovery time is not needed for this treatment. You may feel a tingling sensation or pain in the area where the fat was removed. This is temporary and will go away over time.
Ensure you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle afterwards to maintain the effects of the treatment. Also, while choosing the clinic for the treatment, ensure the cryolipolysis machine they use meets with the Australian safety & regulatory compliance. It is important to understand that different devices deliver different results.
