Cryolipolysis or Fat Freezing?
The Term “Cryolipolysis was formed by the merging of two words. “Cryogenic” which means to freeze and “lipolysis” which is the breakdown of lipids which involves hydrolysis of triglycerides into glycerol and free fat acids (i.e. the breakdown and removal of the fat cells. This is why this process is often dubbed “fat Freezing”.
Cryolipolysis has been scientifically proven to be a very safe method for body contouring, has minimal discomfort and a high patient satisfaction rate. Clinical studies have shown Cryolipolysis treatments to be effective on destroying, between 20% – 40% of the fat cells in the treatment area. (Individual results may vary)
Fat Freezing versus other Treatments
Cryolipolysis offers a viable alternative to liposuction. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure that slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing extra fat deposits. Usually operated by the Plastic Surgery or dermatologist with a special surgical instruments for liposuction. It is an invasive way to remove subcutaneous fat tissue.
There are also possible fatal complications and negative side effects associated with having liposuction. This factors include swelling painful bruising, pain numbness limited mobility and allergic reaction. In addition, liposuction is of high cost.
Other non-invasive way to remove excessive fat including drugs, diet pills, regular exercise, diet control or a combination of these methods. A disadvantage of these treatments is likely invalid, and even in some cases impossible. For Example, when a person physically injured or sick, you can’t select the way of regular exercise. Similarly, when the diet pills or external use of drugs are allergic or cause adverse reactions, in addition, the use of physical or systemic approach to lose weight, you can’t dissolve the body fat of a selected area.
The cooling procedure using Fat Freezing “Cryolipolysis” is fundamentally different from other non or minimally invasive modalities, and it was approved as the most effective way to fat reduction.
