If you have been trying to lose weight with exercise and dieting, you have probably found some success. It can also be assumed that the success you have achieved is nothing close to what you have expected since your weight loss efforts began. The body simply doesn’t mold itself to our desires and expectations the way we wish it would. Although weight loss occurs, the shape of the body might still remain undesirable. This is the perfect opportunity for you to employ one of the many body contouring procedures available for cases just like this. Cryolipolysis is a procedure that uses fat freezing to destroy fat deposits in key areas of your body and help reshape your figure.
How Does Cryolipolysis Work?
Cold temperatures can be applied to areas of your body that have fat deposits that can be so hard to get rid of, despite your best efforts. These are composed of fat cells that were produced at a time when you were ingesting much more in calories than you needed for energy. At the same time, these calories were most probably obtained from simple carbohydrates and refined sugars, your worst enemies when it comes to your weight loss efforts.
When our specialists apply carefully regulated and very cold temperatures to these fat deposits, the freezing temperature alters the state of the fat cells. They are no longer recognized by your body’s immune system as being a part of your natural body. These fat cells eventually make their way out of your body naturally, the way other toxins and foreign substances are handled by your digestive and immune systems.
In time, usually several months, the results of the procedure are clear. The fat loss in these key areas will have a dramatically reshaping effect that exercise and diet alone cannot accomplish. The abdomen, the flanks and underneath the chin are areas most commonly treated with cryolipolysis. One of the most popular forms of cryolipolysis is known as CoolSculpting. This procedure has gained in popularity because so many people have known the benefits of it.
Basics of Fat Freezing Procedures
Fat freezing procedures are very simple and can be performed in less than an hour in many cases. Cooling panels are used to transfer the cold temperatures into the deeper layers of skin. Attached to these cooling panels are vacuum applicators, which are used to pull the skin as close as possible to the panels. You will feel a cold sensation on the skin that has a numbing effect, but no pain.
Fat freezing is a truly non-invasive procedure that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for these purposes. It works best in areas like the abdomen, the back and the sides of the waistline commonly known as love handles.
