Liposuction, Kybella, SculpSure, and Vanquish are different kinds of fat reduction methods besides Cryolipolysis. Liposuction is more invasive and carries high complication risks. Kybella is a lipolysis injection for correcting facial features. SculpSure is a heat-based laser that melts fat cells but is painful and at risk of scarring. Vanquish uses radiofrequency to kill the fat cells but the person needs to have more uniform fat.
What is Cryoliposysis?
Cryoliposis or CoolSculpting is a better alternative than the above for reducing fat from stubborn areas. There is no anesthesia, cuts, or tools involved. It has become the most popular body sculpting procedure around the world. People in Colorado can visit the Body Massage Wellness Med Spa in Denver for the coolsculpting treatment. FDA has approved the CoolSculpting method.
The concept is to use freezing temperatures to break the fat cells down. Highly cool temperatures affect the fat cells more quickly than any other cells. It means cold temperature will not impact the underlying tissue or skin.
Which body parts can CoolSculpting target?
CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss treatment. The areas that stubbornly resist healthy eating habits and exercise can choose this method. There are two kinds of fat tissue – one is closer to the skin surface [subcutaneous fat], while the other is deep in the body [visceral fat].
The fat tissue that is close to the skin surface responds well to cryoliposysis, while the denser ones cannot be reached. Surface fat that can be easily pinched is an ideal target for Cryoliposysis. The best areas that can be treated with CoolSculpting are –
- Chin or neck
- Love handles
What to expect during the cryoliposysis procedure?
The cosmetic professional uses an applicator to vacuum the skin above fatty tissue and cool the fatty cells. The site turns numb and some people experience a cooling sensation. The cooling process takes 40 to 50 minutes, depending on the area to target.
You can get back to your normal routine within some time. There can be soreness at the site just like you experience after a minor muscle injury or intense workout. Some have reported mild discoloration, firmness, itchiness, swelling, and firmness.
It takes four to six months for the dead fatty cells to leave your body. The target area will see a decrease of 20% in fat. The results are long-lasting because the fat cells are destroyed and don’t return back. However, it is up to you to maintain the newly gained contoured body. Live a healthy lifestyle and preserve the CoolSculpting results. Follow a healthy diet and regular workout to avert the buildup of pounds.
