These days there are many demands for body sculpting or local body fat reduction. Therefore, many available treatments in the market are based on systems that deliver either heat or freezing fat cells. Cryolipolysis, which stands for cold (cryo) fat (lipo) destruction (lysis), is one of these technologies based on freezing fat cells.
What is Consider the Body Fat?
According to the Harvard Medical School publication, each of us has two distinct fat types in our bodies: subcutaneous fat (the kind rolling over your pants’ waistband) and visceral fat (or brown fat that lines your organs).
When we are talking about fat, it means subcutaneous fat, as this is the type of fat that cryolipolysis targets. Released by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a recent study demonstrated the body loses the ability to remove subcutaneous fat with age, which means we fight an uphill battle with each birthday we celebrate.
Freezing fat is a great non-invasive option for subcutaneous fat reduction and cellulite treatment as results are similar to liposuction (say no to surgery). They are using cold temperatures to freeze and kill the fat cells, so fat cells die. Macrophages, part of your immune system’s clean-up crew, digest the dead fat cells, resulting in fat reduction.
How it Works and Who Is a Good Fat Freezing Candidate?
Cryolipolysis is to be a safe and effective fat loss treatment without the downtime of liposuction or surgery. If you have pinchable and stubborn fat in local areas, then you might be the right client for this procedure. These fat bulges can be located on your back, chin, outer thighs, abdomen, and upper arms. These areas are also notable for how difficult they can be to shape, even with diet and regular exercise. This treatment won’t improve your overall health but may help you fit into your favorite clothes.
The treatment is roughly one hour per application. Multiple applications may be necessary depending upon the area and technologies. For example, four or more applications could be required to ensure even fat removal from the belly’s entire front. The patient is comfortable, as once the handpiece is applied to the skin, it does not move for a certain period. The average fat reduction ranges from about 10% – 25% per round of treatment. The second round of treatment could be necessary after several months, depending on the desired results.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
In the few weeks after your treatment, you might experience redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, numbness, tenderness, or darkening of the treated area, but this is temporary and will resolve completely.
Result will be achieved three weeks after treatment, but the full results typically appear in three months. However, your body will be flushing out fat cells gradually after completing your treatment. You can successfully reduce your stubborn local fat at Nell Laser Clinic.
How Does Botox Injections Smooth Out Wrinkles?
These days, Botox injections are one of the most popular and safe treatments available. Globally, millions of women and men use botox to smooth out their fine lines and wrinkles. Also it is used for medical purposes such as sweating, migrain, overactive bladder, strabismus and blepharospasm. Derived from purified proteins of botulinum bacteria. It blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles thus injected muscle can’t contract. That makes wrinkles relax and soften. So your facial muscles causing dynamic wrinkles are paralyzed, thus giving your face a fresh appearance. This simple treatment’s beauty is that its regular use will soften expression lines and stop developing and deepening aging lines. Typically, individuals have treatment in several vital areas, such as between the eyebrows (frown lines), your forehead’s horizontal lines, and crow’s feet (around the outside of your eyes). With over 20 years of use and its approval in more than 75 countries for 20 different applications, including in Canada for medical and cosmetic use, Botox can be a real option to address skin concerns.
The Botox procedure takes about 10 to 15 minutes, but the effects can last up to four months. Regular treatments can make the effects last longer. This aging treatment usually can be started in your early 30s to prevent deep lines and wrinkles on expression lines. The best part is this option provides the means to arrest aspects of the aging process. However, other injection types such as fillers are available to plump and tightening your skin.
I recently read in a newsletter that in the UK there is an innovative rejuvenation treatment (Uvence) that uses the patient’s live fat cells, freezes them, and injects them strategically into the skin to create a fully personalized treatment. This new skin rejuvenation method was created by a plastic surgeon who does not use a traditional filler. Thus it will be more expensive than conventional options. With this new option, you might be wondering what cosmetic fillers are and how they are used.
Conventional fillers such as Juvederms are made of a soft, injectable gel (hyaluronic acid that is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body). This gel can restore lost volume in your skin, as well as reducing the lines and wrinkles. These injections can also stimulate collagen production while enhancing the appearance of your cheeks, lips, and jawline. These fillers can provide natural-looking results with moderate use, and these effects can last for up to 9-12 months.
Still, if you are not necessarily interested in these types of fillers or botox injections, there are other skin rejuvenation treatments available that can address multiple concerns you might have. Let’s dive into what those are and how they impact your skin over the long term.
