Whether you want to lose weight to fit into your favorite pair of jeans, or whether you’re trying to make sure that your body stays as healthy as possible as you age, weight loss can be very rewarding — but it can also be very difficult. Sometimes the extra weight just won’t go away, even with regular exercise and a healthy diet. For this very reason, a process called a cryolipolysis treatment — also called CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment — was developed as an easy, non-invasive tummy tuck alternative. If you think that a cryolipolysis treatment is exactly what you need to look and feel your best, here are a few important things about the procedure to keep in mind.
- Unlike other weight loss procedures, cryolipolysis is non-invasive and allows the body to remove unnecessary cellulite naturally over an extended period (usually between a few weeks and a couple of months) which allows the body to adjust while still producing visible results.
- Cryolipolysis treatments use something called fat freezing technology; this is where targeted fat cells are cooled down enough to die, after which the body naturally flushes out the dead cells. Even though the procedure cools the cells to a near-freezing temperature, the entire fat freezing procedure can be conducted without harming the overlaying skin and without causing frostbite.
- Most patients do experience side effects from a cryolipolysis treatment, although compared to the recovery time of other weight loss procedures, the side effects here are very minimal and tolerable. The most common side effects include tingling, numbness, and redness in the targeted areas, and this tends to subside without causing any permanent damage.
- Cryolipolysis procedures don’t just provide cellulite removal results — these treatments are also very safe, and have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Anyone looking for some help with weight loss — and willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle — will find that this treatment also produces long-lasting results.
