Cryolipolysis, otherwise known as Coolsculpting or fat freezing, is a method that more and more people are enjoying to treat their weight problems. Whether you have a small patch that needs tightening up or are carrying significant weight, this is one method that gets rid of the fat and can keep it gone with the right steps. Here's what you need to know about freezing your fat.
What It Does
Cryolipolysis is a treatment that literally uses the cold to help destroy fat. Areas of the body are targeted with a sculpting device that uses freezing temperatures to get rid of fat. The results aren't immediate, but they do appear very quickly. As an added bonus, unlike liposuction and so many other spot-treatment fat loss methods, cryolipolysis isn't invasive. Nothing is inserted into your body, you're not cut, and you can walk away with no pain and go back to your daily life right away.
What Happens to You
Extreme cold triggers cell death, and in the cryolipolysis process, the cells targeted are your fat cells. These are the cells that are built by your body to house excess fat that's utilized when you need additional energy.
During the cold treatment, the fat cells are killed. The reason you don't immediately see results is that it's up to your body to do the rest of the work. Your body will begin to break down and remove the dead fat cells, so you'll gradually see significant improvements in the days and weeks following your treatment.
Keep in mind, this technique doesn't put any of your other cells in danger. It's been specifically designed to stop at a temperature that's capable of destroying fat cells while causing no harm to your skin or other tissues.
Keeping It Off
Here's the thing about stubborn patches of fat in the body: even when you burn fat, the cells don't go away. Fat cells are made on an as-needed basis, so if—for example—you have a little pouch on your midsection, it's full of fat cells. Unfortunately, once you burn the fat there, you may still have a bit of a pouch, even if it shrinks and becomes smaller. This is because the cells are still there, but empty, or holding water. Until those cells are destroyed, you can't get the flat belly you're looking for.
This can be particularly frustrating for people who have a low BMI but can't get the appearance they're looking for. The good news is, cryolipolysis takes care of this by killing and triggering the removal of these cells entirely. If you get the results you want and stay on a careful diet, you can avoid having your body build new fat cells in the same place, and your stomach—or whatever your problem area may be—will stay dramatically improved.
Fat cells were nearly impossible to get rid of through normal means, except via surgical methods, like liposuction. Thankfully, cryolipolysis changes all that. If you wish your body was a little thinner or firmer, contact a cryolipolysis specialist and find out what they can do for you without any pain, drugs, or incisions.
A few months ago, I realized that I wanted to look a little bit younger. I got a job as a marketing representative, so I found myself traveling from place to place to sell our company's products and services. However, my older look seemed to be holding me back from communicating effectively with the younger crowd. To correct this problem, I started investigating plastic surgery, and I was really impressed with how many procedures were out there that could improve my appearance. I was able to completely overhaul my look by going through and undergoing a few procedures, and now I feel great. This blog is all about updating your look with plastic surgery.
