Choosing the Right Cosmetic Procedures

What To Expect If You Want To Get Rid Of Fat Pockets With A Cryolipolysis Treatment

Cryolipolysis treatments can be used in a few ways to reduce unwanted fat and sculpt your body. One reason cryotherapy, or using cold temperatures, is so effective at fat loss is that fat cells can be destroyed at temperatures that aren't cold enough to harm other types of cells.

These treatments are taken by exposing your skin to cold temperatures in some way. A Cryoskin weight loss treatment alternates hot and cold temperature massages. Here's what you might expect when you get a cryolipolysis fat loss treatment. 

The Treatments Are For Fat Loss In Targeted Areas

Cryotherapy treatments are given with devices that target problem areas on your body, such as your abdomen, love handles, underarms, and back. The treatments aren't suitable for weight loss all over your body. Your provider will probably recommend you're close to your ideal weight, but you just have troublesome pockets of fat you want to get rid of.

The Treatment Chills Your Fat Cells

If you have a Cryoskin treatment, the provider massages your skin in the targeted area with a device that heats up your fat cells and then quickly chills them. The cold temperature may be uncomfortable, but it doesn't hurt your skin since the treatment isn't cold enough to harm skin cells. However, it's cold enough to kill fat cells.

The provider may follow the cold massage with another hot one to stimulate circulation and help move the fat cells out of your body through your lymph system. You might notice a small difference in your shape right away, but since your body will remove fat cells over time, it may take a few weeks to fully appreciate how your shape has improved.

You'll Probably Need Additional Treatments

To get the fullest effect from your fat loss treatments, you may need multiple weekly or bi-weekly sessions. Each treatment builds on the last one so you see cumulative effects on the amount of weight and fat you lose. If you want to enhance your results, you should diet and exercise too. The quick results you get from cryotherapy may motivate you to stick with a fitness routine to improve and maintain your results.

When you have your evaluation before treatments begin, the provider will estimate how many treatments you'll need so you know what to expect. They'll also explain when you should see results and what you'll need to do after the treatment.

Your skin may be red after you've had a cryotherapy fat loss treatment, but the redness goes away fairly fast. You might be encouraged to drink more water after a treatment so you can flush out the dead fat cells faster.
