Have you ever noticed that some fat bulges just won’t budge no matter what you do?
A plethora of factors such as genetics, physical inactivity, processed foods, aging, and/or hormonal imbalances can lead to stubborn fat deposits in certain areas of your body.
Luckily, we have advanced and targeted fat reduction treatments such as cryolipolysis, that can help eliminate the stubborn fat pockets without surgery.
Read on to know more about how cryolipolysis can help you look your best.
What Is Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cold temperatures to destroy (or freeze away) the fat cells in the treated area.
CoolSculpting® and Coolsculpting Elite® are popular FDA-cleared fat freezing (cryolipolysis) treatments that can reduce up to 20 to 25% of fat in the treated area.
How Does Cryolipolysis Destroy Fat Cells Permanently?
Cryolipolysis works using the principle of fat freezing i.e. targeting and cooling stubborn fat pockets at a very low temperature. During the process, specially-designed handheld applicators suck in the fat bulges, applying controlled cold temperatures to the area to freeze away and destroy the fat cells. More importantly, cryolipolysis only targets fat cells without causing any damage to surrounding tissue.
What Happens To The Destroyed Fat Cells?
Once the fat cells are frozen and die, your body triggers a natural healing response to flush out the dead fat cells via your lymphatic system.
Do note that it might take 1 to 3 months for your body to completely eliminate them.
Can You Lose Weight With Cryolipolysis?
No, Cryolipolysis is a fat freezing or fat reduction treatment for stubborn fat pockets. It is NOT a weight loss treatment at all.
It is important to remember that cryolipolysis is best suited for stubborn fat pockets that do not respond to diet or exercise and are usually harder to remove due to certain factors like genetics or hormonal imbalances.
Therefore, it is more ideal for reducing unsightly fat bulges in people who have achieved their ideal weight or are just a few pounds away from it, but not really for patients who need or want to lose weight.
How Long Will The Results Last?
The results typically take 3 to 6 months to fully kick in as your body gradually and naturally eliminates the destroyed fat cells after the treatments. Many of my clients notice a difference within 6-8 weeks after treatment.
Cryolipolysis can reduce up to 20-25% fat cells in the treated area. However, it is important to remember that you’ll still have your fat pad and gaining back significant or excessive weight would cause the fat cells that you have left in that area to expand, but the fat cells that die are gone and eliminated from your body forever.
If you’re looking to regain your confidence by reducing the unsightly stubborn fat bulges in different areas of your body without going under the knife, cryolipolysis might be the best fat reduction treatment for you.
