How CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis Works?

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting or Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment, which involves cooling of adipose tissue to induce lipolysis (breaking down fat cells), without damage to other tissues. Like Liposuction, the best CoolSculpting Doctor in Mumbai use this treatment to target fat bulges that is otherwise difficult to reduce through medication, diet, and exercise. As per research by some of the best dermatologist in Bandra, Mumbai, CoolSculpting is one of the most effective fat reduction procedure.

Best skin specialist in Bandra, Mumbai has also clarified that as CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment, it has obvious benefits over traditional methods of surgical procedures of fat removal, as it does not involve cuts, anaesthesia, or other heavy medications.

How CoolSculpting Works?

Most of the  top dermatologists in Mumbai perform it by placing an area of fat into two panels of a non-invasive applicator, that cool the fat to a freezing temperature. This is done while protecting the skin, nerves, muscles, and other tissues. The frozen, dead fat cells undergo apoptosis (controlled cell death) and are gradually eliminated out of the body through the liver within few weeks of treatment, revealing the reduction of the thickness of the fat layer.

What happens to the fats?

Cryolipolysis freezes and kills the fat cells in the treated area of the body. Within few weeks, these dead cells that are naturally broken down, becomes a waste product, and are transported by the lymphatic system to get processed. These fat cells will be permanently eliminated from the body and will not be regenerated again.

How long does it last? Is it permanent?

This query has been well explained by the best cosmetologist in Mumbai. CoolSculpting destroys the fat cells permanently. This means, once killed, they will not come back. But the fact is that, killing the existing fat cells will not stop new fat cells from appearing. This explains why a healthy lifestyle is important to preserve the results of CoolSculpting. A person with lack of exercise or a healthy diet will soon see the fat return.

The results are permanent, but one must adhere to good lifestyle like balanced diet, physical exercise, and healthy living habits. If one goes and gains after the procedure the remaining fat cells in that treated area becomes larger and the results are hampered. Around 25 per of subacute fat cells can be removed in a single session.

Is it safe? Does it have any side effects and complications?

Almost all the top skin specialist in Mumbai have certified that CoolSculpting is a safe medical procedure for fat reduction. Its best feature is that it does not require any recovery time, and it is completely non-surgical. And because this procedure is completely non-invasive, it allows immediate return to normal activities.

  • Sometimes, patients might experience redness, minor bruising, swelling, numbness or mild discomfort in the treated area, but it is just temporary and will completely resolve.
  • Sometimes, the patients might experience desensitizing in the treated area.
  • Some patients might experience tugging sensation, stinging, or aching at the treated area.

But there are no major complications like bleeding or skin pigmentation or scarring.
