There is an almost universal desire to lose weight and reduce the amount of fat that is in the body. We all want to look better. We all know that weight gain is harmful not only due to media, images, and appearances. I believe physicians can perform many effective noninvasive procedures for treating their patients. Some physicians use noninvasive procedures to help them achieve better results. They are capable of helping to achieve a pleasing appearance. Body contouring is becoming the fastest growing field in dermatology.
Some patients are reluctant to have any procedure that involves invasive surgery, such as liposuction, because the effects can be very negative and the procedures can be very expensive. There are many procedures that are becoming more effective and safer for reducing fat and skin tightening. Noninvasive procedures are available that are effective in achieving body contouring. Noninvasive body contouring procedures are not as dramatic as surgery, and patients do not notice the results immediately. They are frequently requested by patients who want to feel more attractive. Noninvasive procedures utilize the special properties of fat to cause cells in the body to break down and thus lose fat. Some people experience cell death as a result of noninvasive procedures done to them. Cold therapy causes adipocytes to die. It has been extensively studied.
The four main techniques that are often used for achieving a smoother, more defined and shaped body are cryolipolysis, radiofrequency, high intensity focused ultrasound, and laser therapy. Scientists constantly try to find the most effective noninvasive procedures that are truly effective. We will explain each of these procedures briefly to help dermatologists decide which noninvasive procedures they should use to treat their patients.
Cryolipolysis freezes adipocytes, which are more sensitive to freezing than other water-rich cells. This slows their death rate and protects surrounding tissues. It kills more rapidly adipocytes that are more susceptible to freezing than other cells and prevents damage to nearby tissues. If adipocytes are frozen and killed, the body will no longer have a lot of fat in its tissues. There is a treatment called cryolipolysis, which is used to freeze excess fat that is in the breasts and in the thighs. The procedure was approved in 2010 and again in 2015 and 2016.
I have found that cutting the amount of fat is very easy with the use of a small, flexible tube to freeze those cells. The fat is removed by vaccuming the treated area between two cooling panels for approximately 30 to 60 minutes. Many patients are very happy with the results that they achieve by using cryolipolysis. They have never had adverse effects from the procedure. It is possible to cause skin irritation or redness and swelling during cryolipolysis, and it is possible to feel as though someone is touching your skin. It is not known if this will cause long-term complications, but it is expected that these complications will not last very long. They will disappear in a week. Some people are concerned that their lipid levels may increase in their blood or liver after having excess fat removed. However, such levels are normal. Those levels are normal for most patients when they are undergoing a procedure like cryolipolysis. Patients should be aware that paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is rare. It causes a hard, tender mass of fat to form at the area where the procedure was performed. This often occurs two to three months after the procedure is completed. Around 10,000 people have adipose tissue that needs to be removed and it is estimated that one in every 10,000 people will have this problem. It is possible that patients are being warned about paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, a rare effect that occurs when fat tissue is removed. In one study, a risk was reported of 0.47% in 422 patients who received this treatment. Patients who have previously had other fat reduction procedures such as a liver transplant or a fatty liver graft have not experienced this problem. It is safe for anyone to have cryolipolysis done. There are no reports of changes in the color of the skin after treatment. Upon undergoing cryolipolysis, there have been no reported changes causing the skin to become darker. If you have cold symptoms (eg., cryoglobulinemia or extremely painful varicose veins or atopic dermatitis), then I would not have a procedure performed to treat those conditions. The removal of small or moderate amounts of adipose tissue and/or fat cells is safe and may benefit menopause sufferers.
CoolSculpting can help you remove stubborn fat cells that are causing you to have problems. Some fat cells in your body are very stubborn. Cryolipolysis removes stubborn fat cells very safely. It is called cryolow oop because it is very safe. FDA approved the procedure in 2010, and it is safe and effective. Besides, it removes fat cells in the process.
Scientists have discovered that freezing fats is beneficial when someone is very sick and dies. More fat melts when temperatures are higher than that of the skin. Crystalliolysis reduces the temperature in fat cells so that they freeze, Figure 2. Your skin and body tissues are not affected.
