Cryolipolysis: The No-scalpel Treatment That Freezes Your Fat Cells

The effect is encouraging. I tried it and I will tell you about my experience.

Kim Kardashian, Megan Fox, Jennifer Aniston, and many other celebrities are the ones who tried this amazing method to burn (literally) body fat forever. A friend encouraged me to try it and today, in this article, I want to tell you what it is about.

Cryolipolysis or CoolSculpting (cold sculpting) is a non-invasive or painful technique that is performed in medical centers and in certified aesthetic cabinets, to reduce those areas where fat accumulates and we cannot lower it for the world.

But I need it all over my body!

This is what I told my friend when she told me about this technique that she offers in her cabinet. Jokes aside, after learning about the subject, reading medical reviews about it and making sure it does not have harmful side effects, I decided to undergo a session and the truth is that I was fascinated!

Yes, I accompanied it with a healthy nutrition and I started drinking more water than I used to. Because, to be frank, since I had invested a few bucks, it was better to do things right. 

After my two pregnancies I was left with a few extra kilos, and although when I go on a diet my metabolism responds wonderfully, in my abdomen there was still a somewhat annoying tummy. But also, the most annoying thing was the amount of pants that did not fit. 

I steadfastly refuse to buy oversized pants ,” I said; so I got on my feet and went for my first cryolipolysis session.

What is cryolipolysis?

The term cryolipolysis refers to the destruction of fat cells through “freezing” them. It is made with specially designed devices that, without damaging other tissues, is concentrated in the accumulation of adipocytes, cools them to a temperature between 5º and -10º (depending on the area and amount of fat to be treated) and destroys them completely.

The cells then begin a natural process of elimination for the next two to three months. That is, the fat removed goes to the urine and feces butthe body eliminates it naturally and gradually, without damaging kidneys or any other tissue or organ.

Thus, the results can be seen in the first weeks after the session, but the optimal result can be seen around two months. In my case, 10 days after the first session was applied, I could see how my abdomen looked much more deflated and my skin looked better. The best thing is that as the weeks go by, the fat continues to be eliminated from my body.

How does it apply?

The special machinery for this treatment works through nozzles that will exert suction in the area to be treated. An antifreeze cloth is spread over the skin, so that the cold does not damage the epidermis, and the machine then begins to suck to put the skin in contact with the cooling plates.

It hurt?

At first you feel a slight pressure, like a pinch and a numbness, which then diminishes with the passage of time. That is to say, as soon as the treatment begins, the patient may feel discomfort and some discomfort, but after a few minutes it diminishes.

Of course, it all depends on the pain threshold of each one. But women are used to pain: childbirth, waxing, wearing heels for hours, etc. A slight pinch for a few minutes does not scare us.

How long does each session last?

Depending on the areas to be treated and the equipment to be used, a cryolipolysis session can last between 30 and 60 minutes. And after the first session you must wait a period of 6 weeks to reapply another in the same place.

Where can it be applied?

It can be applied to the abdomen, flanks, legs, waist, back rolls and even the double chin. It is not indicated for people with obesity, but yes for those that have accumulated fat in certain areas.

Side effects

One of the reasons why this treatment is acclaimed by thousands of people around the world is because the side effects are minimal. In my case, it left me dark bruises, due to the vacuum pressure that the device makes, but they disappeared as the days went by. In addition, they do not hurt like bruises, but it is simply a darkening of the skin; pressing does not feel pain at all.

The procedure does not require anesthesia and is ambulatory, so you can go home once the session is over. 

Thumb up for cryolipolysis

If you have that unruly roll that does not want to go away, or accumulated fat in areas that are very difficult to treat, cryolipolysis can be an excellent option for feel comfortable with your body. 

Of course, you do not need to go crazy. We must not go to the extreme, because we must love ourselves as we are, but always doing what makes us feel good about ourselves.

I encourage you that if you have the opportunity to do it, do it (not without first consulting a doctor), because the results are encouraging and will motivate you to continue feeding your body in a healthy way, leading a healthier lifestyle.

I love myself, and I want to look good

I already passed that stage where I went crazy when I had an extra kilo. I’m in that period of my life where I love my body, appreciate the woman I became, and take pride in being who I am.

I love to look good, take care of myself, and feel good. And without becoming fanatical, I can say that I like to take care of this “container” and feel pretty, as surely you also do.

So go ahead, take care of your body and your beauty, but never forget to leave that light on that makes you unique and special.
