Cryolipolysis i.e. body sculpting, is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, which makes it one of the most popular treatments that helps us get a better figure. With controlled cooling technology, the fat cells are permanently destroyed without having to go under the knife. This fat-freezing treatment is highly effective, which is why more and more people opt for body sculpting as a way to achieve their desired body shape.
What is Cryolipolysis?
Cryolipolysis is the number one non-invasive fat-removal treatment in the world. An FDA-cleared CoolSculpting device will permanently destroy fat cells in a particular body part. One of the advantages of body sculpting is that it doesn’t require any kind of sedation during the treatment. With the use of an applicator that is attached to a certain part of the body, the fat in that particular area is being frozen. The area soon becomes numb because of the coldness and remains that way for the next 60 minutes. The treatment lasts for about 35 minutes, but can sometimes last up to 75 minutes, depending on the part of the body that’s being treated. After the fat has been frozen, it’s further crystalized and the area requires a massage, either through radio waves or a manual one, to break up the crystals. The damaged fat cells are slowly reabsorbed later on, and then, finally excreted. You’re free to do all the activities normally and immediately after the treatment.
Are you a good candidate?
Anyone who can notice the smallest amount of fat on their body could be a good candidate for fat cavitation. It’s the best procedure for getting rid of stubborn fat that simply won’t go away no matter how much you try. Postpartum lower belly fat excess, love handles and outer thigh fat bulges can all be successfully treated with cryolipolysis. If you have a double chin, fat in the upper arms, bra bulges, abdomen, waist, or back fat, you’re a good candidate for a body sculpting procedure. This treatment is definitely worth considering if you are trying to lose weight and would also like to change their body shape in the process.
The first results are visible after a month of regular treatments, while you can see the final results after three months. Don’t feel discouraged if you don’t see the results immediately after the treatment, because even though you may notice a minimal change on your body, it’ll take at least two or three more treatments for the results to be visible. Furthermore, the best thing about body sculpting is that its effects are extremely long-lasting, and you won’t see the fat coming back any time soon, as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. You must do your best not to gain weight while you’re undergoing the body sculpting treatments, because the results won’t be as noticeable or good as you wished them to be. Also, body sculpting won’t make the numbers on the scale go down, but don’t feel discouraged. Even though you won’t lose weight, cryolipolysis will still make your figure more attractive and help you get rid of stubborn fat.
The risks and side effects
Every treatment comes with certain risks, and so does body sculpting. However, the side effects of the treatment are not too severe, and can be resolved within a few weeks. Redness after the treatment, tenderness, bruising, swelling, and numbness are the most common ones. The area that’s been treated can become sensitive and tingly as well.
When should you start the treatment?
Three to six months before a vacation or some important event is the optimal time for scheduling the first cryolipolysis treatment. For one, you won’t see the final results in the first three months, and that you may end up with bruising, swelling or redness, so it’s best to give your body a few months to fully recover from all the side effects. Twelve weeks after the treatment, you’ll have the flawless skin and more attractive body.
CoolSculpting is the fastest and safest way to achieve the figure you’ve always wanted. All the love handles, back fat, inner thigh fat or stubborn fat on your tummy will be gone after only a few cryolipolysis treatments.
