Pros and Cons of Cryolipolysis

There have been all types of ‘cures’ and treatments available for fat loss. Cryolipolysis is a revolutionary non-surgical contouring treatment that freezes stubborn fat. Like any other methods, Cryolipolysis has its pros and cons.

If you’ve been considering cosmetic surgery to get rid of unwanted body fat, you may be a good candidate for the Cryolipolysis procedure. Here’s a close look at the pros and cons of this innovative procedure.

The Pros:

It is a non-surgical procedure.

No downtime and you can return to normal right after treatment.

Little pain or discomfort.

No pain-killers needed afterwards.

Helps get rid of those areas of fat that didn’t go with dieting.

Can help tighten the skin

Precisely controlled cooling is applied to fat layer without harming the skin

The Cons:

There may be some redness, or bruising for a few days, but this will go and it is considered a safe treatment.

While it’s true that fat does not return to treated areas after the fat cells have been removed, this does not prevent subsequent weight gain. Your weight still needs to be maintained through diet and exercise.

Beware of scams, some people have been offering similar sounding treatment, or putting patients in a ‘cold chamber’ as a way of fat reduction.

Most people need to undergo several treatments in order to see significant results, and results are usually visible within two to four months, with continued improvements at the six-month mark.

During the treatment process, individuals are advised to follow a healthy diet and continue exercising, as these strategies will help the body release toxins and dead fat cells.
