Whether you have a very substantial amount of stomach fat or just a few stubborn pounds, cryolipolysis can help you achieve the stunning results you want. Sometimes diet and exercise simply aren’t enough to create a noticeable difference in your stomach and abdominal area, which can lead to a cycle of boundless frustration. Spot reduction is very difficult because our bodies tend to shed pounds evenly throughout when we actually do manage to lose weight. Unlike liposuction, cryolipolysis is a non-surgical and non-invasive alternative to help you attain your goal of a toned, attractive midsection. It can specifically target your stomach area and restore your feeling of having a balanced physique.
The procedure is performed by placing a cooling device, a machine that has been calibrated to the correct temperature, over your stomach and abdomen. This cryogenically freezes the fat cells underneath. Simultaneously, a different machine is also used which brings blood to the skin and surface tissue to counteract the effects of the freezing on the skin. This ensures that only the fat cells are destroyed and the surface skin remains unharmed. These dead fat cells are then flushed out through your normal bodily functions. You can expect to see noticeable results from the treatment within a month and full results within three months.
Unlike liposuction, cryolipolysis is painless. While the procedure is being performed, you can expect to feel a distinctly cool sensation on the treated area, followed by numbness.
Subsequent side effects can include numbness, redness, slight inflammation and bruising as a possible result of the powerful vacuum used to increase blood flow.
