Cryolipolysis: Can fat effectively be removed without surgery?
Imagine finally being free from pesky and persistent lurking fat bulges, the kind responsible for muffin top, bingo wings and saddle bags. Having the confidence to wear the section of your wardrobe reserved for one day when…, feeling comfortable in your own body, being body happy.
If stubborn fat pockets are holding you back, cryolipolysis could help.
What Is Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis is at its most simple level a fat freezing technology. Fat cells are responsible for storing fat, the more fat cells you have, the more fat your body is able to store. Naturally fat cells may be naturally metabolised from your body, however this process takes time and while your body holds these fat cells, the areas they lurk will always be prone to holding fat.
Cryolipolysis is a permanent solution to this challenge. Fat cells are out of all the cells your body contains, overly sensitive to cold meaning the right temperature can selectively destroy them. We’ll discuss just how cold cryolipolysis treatments get very soon.
How Does Cryolipolysis Work?
If person A had 20 fat cells and person B had 40 fat cells, person B would always be more prone to gaining weight than person A. Having a larger number of fat cells makes it easier for your body to gain weight – cryolipolysis can help.
During a cryolipolysis treatment, for example CoolLipo the average temperature you will experience is -7oC . To apply cryolipolysis to selected areas, CoolLipo uses a cup shaped paddle which is placed onto a protective gel pad sitting on top of your target body area. The cup shaped paddle then applies vacuum to suck the target body area into direct contact with the cooling paddle.
After fat cells have been destroyed by cryolipolysis, your body naturally begins removal via lymphatic drainage. For as long as a healthy diet and lifestyle is maintained – cryolipolysis will show you long lasting results.
Cryolipolysis Side Effects
As a non-invasive, no downtime procedure cryolipolysis has minimal side effects. During treatment it’s highly likely you will experience a strong tingling directly after application of the cryolipolysis paddle – this is normal and rather than being painful at most could be described as uncomfortable. Helpfully cold has a numbing effect and therefore if you do find in treatment tingling uncomfortable, you will find sensations quickly subside.
After a cryolipolysis treatment is complete, some may experience bruising, redness or soreness contained with and around the chosen treatment area. All of these effects will resolve quickly and should not cause worry.
The most important consideration of any aesthetic treatment is results – what are they and is the investment worth your time? Helpfully cryolipolysis treatments such as CoolLipo use a well proven technology – a reason why 9 out of 10 people see results from just 1 treatment.
Cryolipolysis results are visible in some from as little as a week however as your body’s natural drainage system is used to transport away dead fat cells, time is needed before you can enjoy seeing full benefits. Most patients find cryolipolysis results are noticeable within 2 to 7 weeks with full effects achieved within 3 to 4 months.
