Welcome back to the Dispotech, your disposable excellence blog and a new article. Today we will explore a cosmetic procedure that is becoming popular all over the world: coolsculpting, or cryolipolysis. But what is it and, more importantly, does it really work? We’ll have an in-depth look at this treatment supported by an article from medicalnewstoday.com.
So then, what is coolsculpting? To explain it we could analyse the word itself: cold temperatures are used to “sculpt”, modify and improve the appearance of some parts of the body. In particular, cryolipolysis acts on fat cells, freezing and eliminating them – in particular in parts of the body where it is more difficult to act despite proper nutrition and exercise.
The positive aspect is that this medical-aesthetic procedure is non-invasive and therefore not painful with no post-surgical recovery time. However, it is best to be aware that there are contraindications and potential side effects. Before undergoing cryolipolysis, get complete and exhaustive information about the procedure from your doctor and ask any questions you think are necessary.
Cold temperature acts on fat cells and has the ability to eliminate them: in fact, results should be visible after a few months. The procedure is not painful, on the contrary, patients experience a slight numbness in the treated area (which, however, disappears after a short amount of time), as well as a cooling sensation.
Despite being a generally successful treatment, coolsculpting is not a miracle cure: patients that undergo the procedure must try to maintain a healthy and well-balanced diet and continue engaging in sports afterwards. Overeating and a sedentary lifestyle will cause the fat cells to return, nullifying the entire procedure.
Consult your doctor to determine how many sessions are actually needed to eliminate body fat. The procedure obviously falls into the category of aesthetic medicine and is therefore not particularly economical. An alternative to cryolipolysis could be liposuction, which does not, however, exclude risks and subsequent complications.
