CRYOLIPOLYSIS/FAT FREEZING

Cryolipolysis / Coolsculpting is a process where cooling with a cryolipolysis machine is used to freeze and kill fat cells. This helps to reduce unwanted fatty bulges in specific areas. It is a non invasive and very safe method and reduces upto 20% of the fat  within 3 months. Arogyam Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Clinic Guwahati has a very advanced Cryolipolysis instrument which will reduce fat bulges in the stomach, arms, thighs, double chin, love handles, etc in a safe and efficient manner.

Coolsculpting and Cryolipolysis are essentially the same procedure. Cryo means cool, Lipo means fat and lysis is the process of destruction, so Cryolipolysis means destruction of fat by cooling. Coolsculpt is the brand name of the company which originally invented the process of cryolipolysys and since then this brand name has become associated with the name of the process itself and Cryolipolysis and Coolsculpting are used as synonyms, though the actual name of the process is Cryolipolysis. Lipolysis is the name of the surgical procedure where fat layer is destroyed with surgical instruments.

Cryolipolysis depends on the fact that fat cells are more vulnerable to freezing and death than other cells like skin, muscles, etc. This is because fat solidifies first and thus the fat cells get destroyed early. A prolonged period of freezing for 30 minutes to one hour is applied through the skin which freezes of the fat cells in the fat layer. The fat layer remains just under the skin. Deeper fat deposits are also present in the human body like peritoneal fat but these deeper layers are not affected by cryolipolysis.

 

Hence Cryolipolysis works best in persons who are otherwise not fat but have bulges in the stomach, arms and thighs, love handle areas, etc which are difficult to get rid of even with the most extensive dieting and exercise. It works best in persons who are already fit and follow a regime of exercise and dieting, but have persistent bulges. Cryolipolysis is not for people who are not on any diet or exercise schedule and have high BMI, and want to reduce their weight through easy means. Cryolipolysis is not for reducing weight, the reduction of fat in cryolioolysis will not decrease weight significantly, it is only for reducing localized and unseemly fat bulges.

Fat bulges are localized collection of fat in certain areas which are stubborn and do not respond well to diet or exercise. Our body tends to deposit fat in certain areas of the body which depend on gender, genetics, environment, etc. Thus women are more prone to accumulating fat in hips, thighs and buttocks while men tend to accumulate fat in belly, chest and double chin. Fat cells accumulate in these areas driven by genetics. Moreover these fat cells are programmed to store fat for the long term. Fat cells once created never die off, they only grow smaller or larger depending on calorie intake. Because of this, these bulges are difficult to clear off even with the strictest diet and exercise. While the person may be otherwise fit and with minimal fat, localized bulges persist in these areas.

 

Cryolipolysis is very effective because it kills fat cells. Hence the results are permanent, provided of course that the patient maintains an effective diet and exercise regime. Newer fat cells may develop once again with inappropriate diet and inadequate exercise, and results may not be optimal in people who fail in maintaining their fitness regime.

The process of cryolipolysis takes about 45 minutes. A handle is attached on the problem areas, whether it is the stomach or a double chin. Different sizes of handles or applicators are available for different areas such as stomach or double chin. This applicator then pulls in the bulge area into a cup like cavity and controlled cooling is applied.  The procedure causes minimal pain. In the initial stage of the procedure, a pulling sensation which can be minimally painful is felt, but in about 5 minutes the area becomes numb due to cooling and thereafter it is painless. A cold sensation may be felt in that area. Clients can relax with their favourite music or browsing on their mobiles, a nurse will be in attendance if anything is required. There is no requirement of fasting or anything else, but the clients should wear loose clothing which can be pulled back to expose the area to be treated. Once the process is over, the machine switches off by itself. Clients can go back to their work immediately, there is no need to take any rest. Nor are there any special precautions to take after the procedure. Commonest complication is a feeling of numbness in the area which can last for days. Other possible complications are redness, pain and bruising in the area. All these are rare and are hardly seen, they are also temporary and will go away within hours in case of redness and pain and within a week in case some bruising occurs.

 

 

 

The full effect of cryolipolysis takes 3-4 months to appear. This is because even though the fat cells die immediately, they need to be cleared off the body by a process called phagocytosis, which means the immune cells of the body clearing up the dead cells. At the end of 4 months, a reduction of 20% on the average will be seen in the area treated. The process can be repeated after 1 month for further decrease in bulge.

 

After the fat in the bulge has been removed, there may be laxity in skin if the bulge has been a long standing one. At Arogyam, this skin laxity is treated by Cold Radiofrequency. This is very effective in tightening loose skin. Look up here for more information on Cold Radiofrequency.

    Belly fat removal | Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting in Guwahati

    # How do I get rid of the fat in my stomach /belly? What is the best treatment for belly fat?

    # What are the Non Surgical treatments available for belly fat? How can I treat my belly fat safey and easily?

    # Where can I get the best Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting in Guwahati, Assam, NE, for my belly fat?

    Excess fat in the stomach or belly region is one of the most common worries in our present times. A combination of sedentary habits with dietary excess has contributed to an epidemic of obesity and overweight persons in our generations. But this alone is not the problem - as we all know even with a strict diet and exercise regime, belly fat often continues to persist. Even after achieving a satisfactory weight and a reasonably fit body, we find that the belly fat remains stubbornly clinging to our mid riff and nothing that we do seems to have any effect.It is in these situations that we look for a little extra help. Fortunately science has come out with a number of new techniques which give excellent results in removing stubborn pockets of fat like those around our stomach / belly.

     

     

    Diet and exercise are a must to reduce weight. Food intake is the input into our bodies and exercise is the ouput. When our input is more than the output, that is, the calory intake is more than the calories we lose by exercise, we will gain weight and when our calorie output through exercise is more than the calories we eat, we will lose weight. Losing weight is the key to not only looking good but having a healthy long life. Yet why do fat pockets persist even when we are following a reasonably strict diet and exercising well? This is because our bodies are predisposed to storing fats in certain areas like the belly, thighs, below the chin, arms, etc. These fat stores can be stubborn and do not go away easily, it would take very strict dieting and heavy exercise to get rid of them and by that time the whole body's subcutaneous fat would be considerably thinned down leading to a thin and tired look.

    Hence the new scientific techniques which specially target fat stores locally are a great boon in our quest to look fit.

    The three main noninvasive techniques to target local fat bulges are:

    Cryolipolysis / Coolsculpting / Fat freezing

    Radiofrequency application

    Ultrasound application

     

    Cryolipolysis

    Cryolipolysis / coolsculpting / fat freezing is a process where fat cells are attacked using a cold freezing process. The handle of the machine has a cup where vaccum is created and a part of the skin along with its layer of fat is pulled in and this is subjected to controlled cooling. It depends on the principle that fat cells are more vulnerable to cooling and freeze earlier, so that the fat cells get frozen and destroyed while other cells and tissues like skin and muscles are not harmed. These fat cells are then washed away by the body in two to three months. Cryolipolysis or coolsculpting is a very effective process for treating local fat bulges. Full effect takes two to three months to show. It can decrease fats by upto 20%. The process can be repeated after 1 month for further reduction of the fat layer. The process causes minimal pain. The whole process takes about 45 minutes and there is no downtime, the patient can go back to work at the very next moment. No tests , etc are needed for this and almost all people can go for this..

    Radiofrequency:

    Radiofrequency uses very fast oscillating electric currents to heat up the subcutaneous layers of the skin which causes fat cells to eject their fat content and also destroys some fat cells. The thermal injury to the skin also causes fresh collagen deposition in the skin layers which leads to tightening and hydration of the skin. Thus RF causes both fat loss and at the same time also makes the skin tighter and younger. It is very effective for reducing fat bulges. The process takes 40 minutes. It is painless and there is no need for taking rest or anything, the patient can resume his or her normal work immediately. The procedure can be repeated after 1 month.

    Ultrasound application

    Ultrasound application is similar in process to RF but it uses the energy of Ultrasound to act against fat cells and skin layers. The high energy for a focussed ultrasonic beam causes agitation in the fat layers causing the cells to dispel fat globules and also destroys some fat cells, at the same time it also causes tightening and hydration of the skin. It is also totally painless and takes about 40 minutes with no downtime. The procedure can be repeated after 1 month.

     

    It must be remembered that these non surgical fat reduction methods are for reducing localized fat bulges in the stomach and not for overall fat reduction. They work best in those who are already following a reasonably strict diet and exercise regimen and have a satisfactory weight but still have a fat pocket in the abdomen.

    These three methods are used singly or in combination in Arogyam Cosmetic Center Guwahati. We use the latest imported machine which provides all these methods at reasonable rates. All procedures are done by trained nurses in a modern and aesthetic center in a prime area of Guwahati.

    These methods can be used independently or in combination. They can be used for a single session or multiple sessions. This depends partly on the amount of fat and also on the patient's desire.

    When used in combination, the recommended schedule is:

    First Month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    2nd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: Rf

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    3rd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    These methods can be paid for singly or in a package. In a package, the overall rate works out to be less expensive.

    Non Surgical Fat Reduction methods are becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. These methods are a gift from science for the modern world. The safety, ease of use, fast results are making increasing numbers of people opt for them. In combination with diet and exercise, non surgical fat reduction can work wonders in increasing our confidence and making us feel happier with our bodies.

  • Double chin removal with Radiofrequency Treatment
    Double chin removal | Radiofrequency treatment in Guwahati

    # I have got a double chin and I hate it. How do I get rid of my double chin?

    # What is the best non surgical method for treating my double chin?

    #  Where can I get the best Cryolipolysis /Coolsculpting treatment for a double chin in Guwahati Assam?

    A double chin is the pad of fat and skin, anatomically called the submental area, that hangs down behind our chin making us look older and fatter, and also perhaps not as good as someone with a well chisselled profile. Getting rid of a double chin is the most common searched for topic in fat related issues next to getting rid of stomach fat.

    There are three main causes of a double chin - a small chin, fat accumulated in the submental region in fatty persons, and decreased tone of skin and muscle with increasing age. A combination of all three gives us an increasing double chin as we increase in age.

    The treatments for a double chin also fall along three lines:

    Diet and exercise

    Exercises for the double chin

    Non-surgical Fat Removal methods

     

    Diet and Exercise

    Diet and exercise are the mainstay of treatment specially in those who are overweight. Diet is the input into the body and exercise is the output. When input is more than the output, we put on weight and when output is more than the input we lose weight. Maintaining an ideal weight should be the goal for all, not just for cosmetic reasons but also to have a healthy and long life.

    However, often we see that even people who are otherwise not normal have a double chin. Also the double chin persists even in those who have brought down their weight to normal levels. This occurs because our bodies have a tendency to store fat in the submental area. Also with age there is loss of tone of the muscles and skin of the area which gets pulled down by gravity over the course of our years and this causes a double chin when we age.

    Hence we need something else besides maintaining a good diet and exercise regime to get rid of a double chin.

    Exe

    Exercises:

    Exercises for the double chin are also essential to bring back the tone of muscle and skin in the area. This helps greatly in reducing the double chin. The skin and muscle in this area is unique in that the main muscle, the platysma, is thinned out and integrated into the skin. It is this muscle that loses tone and sags causing our double chin to increase with age. Some of the important exercises for a double chin are:

    Puckering:

    Raise your face to look at the ceiling. Pucker up your lips as if you are trying to kiss the ceiling. Hold this for 5 seconds and relax. Repeat this three to five times.

    Tongue press:

    Raise your face to look at the ceiling. Press your tongue hard against your hard palate. Hold this for 5 seconds and relax. Repeat three to five times.

    Tongue out:

    Look straight ahead. Take out your tongue as far as it will go. Hold 5 seconds and relax. Repeat three to five times.

    Grimace:

    Look straight ahead. Pretend to both smile and grimace at the same time so that your neck skin and muscles get tensed up. Hold for 5 seconds and relax. Repeat three to five times.

     

    These exercises should be repeated as often as possible. They can be done for example when you are commuting from home to office. Of course this is not recommended if you use public transport!

    But even with these exercises we may find that our double chin still persists. The third most important step then is non- surgical fat removal. The best method for this in the double chin is Radio Frequency application.

    Radiofrequency application:

    Radiofreqency application uses a very rapidly oscillating electric current to heat up the tissues and cause both loss of fat and tightening of skin. Because the voltage is low the current causes no harm. But the rapid oscillations as the current passes between the tissues heats up the fat layer and also the lower layers of the skin. The fat cells expel fat into the subcutaneous tissues and this is excreted out by the body's lymphatic system. Some of the fat cells are also killed and destroyed by this current. At the same time the thermal injury to the lower layers of the skin causes new collagen deposition which tightens up the skin and thus increases the tone of the skin and also causes the skin to smoothen and look young. 

    Radiofrequency application is very effective in double chin. It tightens up the sagging skin and muscle layer and at the same time eliminates the fat layer. This causes the submental region to tighten up and loose its sagging, thus getting rid of the double chin. 

    The procedure is virtually painless, patients will feel a heat sensation in the area which is always kept under the threshold of pain. The procedure takes about 20 minutes only. There is no downtime at all and patients can go back to work as soon as the procedure is finished.

    For best results, the procedure should be repeated every week for 6 weeks, for a total of 6 sessions.

    At Arogyam Cosmetic Center, we have a new and very advanced machine with with a wide capacity. Cryoliplolysis is also available but in general we have discontinued this for the chin as it can be painful for some patients and also cause bruising. Radiofrequency is as effective as cryolipolysis and hence this is the recommended treatment. All procedures are done by trained and experienced nurses.

  • Love handle removal treatment with Cryolipolysis / Coolsculpting
    Love handle removal | Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting in Guwahati

    #How do I get rid of my love handles? What is the best treatment for my love handles?

    #What are the Non Surgical treatments available for love handles? How do I get rid of love handles safely and easily?

    #Where is the best Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting treatment available in Guwahati for Love handles?

    Love handles are the despair of so many men and women who just want to get rid of them. Love handles are the prominent pinch of skin and fat which hangs down at the side of our hips when we wear a tight belt for example. They are a sign of increased belly fat, and a sign of increased weight in most cases.

    Good diet and exercise are the mainstay for treating increased weight. With tight control, we can bring down our weight to a satisfactory level. But often we see that even when we are maintaining a tight diet and exercise regime and our overall weight is satisfactory, we still have localised pockets of fat in some areas like the belly, thighs, arms, etc including the love handle area. These localised fat lumps are difficult to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. This is because our bodies are genetically programmed to deposit fat in certain areas like the belly, etc. These are the reserve stores of fat. To get rid of them, we would have to go on a very strict diet and exercise, and this would cause overall thinning which might not be desirable and can give a tired look to the face.

    The common treatment for localised fat was Liposuction. This is however a surgical method where the doctor uses surgical processes to remove the fat. It has the normal risks and side effects associated with surgical procedures.

    It is here where modern technology has given us a big boost. Science has developed several techniques which target subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin) specifically and in that localised area only, and that too without any surgery.

    The three most effective methods for Non Surgical Fat Removal are: Cryolipolysis, Radiofrequency application and Ultrasound application.

    Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting

    Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting uses the principle of cold application to kill fat cells. It relies upon the fact that fat cells are much more susceptible to cold than muscle or skin cells and get frozen and die off early without the other cells being harmed. The handle of the machine has a suction cup which draws in tissue. This is then subjected to controlled cooling. As a result the skin and muscles are not harmed but the subcutaneous fat cells are frozen and die off. These cells are subsequently cleared off by the body's phagocytic system. Full results are seen by 2-3 months.

    The process takes 40 minutes. There is negligible pain. There are no risks or side effects though there can be some redness at the site and numbness persisting for 1-2 days. There is no downtime and the patient can go back to work immediately. The procedure can be repeated after 1 month.

    Radiofrequency Application

    Radiofrequency application uses a an oscillating current of very low voltage to pass between the tissues. As the current oscillates between the electrical prods, it heats up the deeper tissues including the fat layer and causes the fat cells to discharge the lipids. At the same time some of the fat cells are destroyed and die off. These two processes cause decrease of the fat layer. Some effect is seen immediately but best results are obtained after 1 month.

    The process is not painful, heating will be experienced but this is kept below the pain threshold. There are no risks or side effects. Patients can go back to work immediately after the procedure. The procedure takes 40 minutes. This procedure can be repeated after 1 month.

    Ultrasound application

    Ultrasound uses the energy of very high frequency sounds which is directed at the fat layers causing vacuolation within the layer. This leads to the fat cells releasing some of their lipids. At the same time some of the fat cells are destroyed. Thus the fat layer is decreased overall. It is a very safe method as there is no intervention required.

    The process takes 40 minutes. There are no risks or side effects, though patients will hear a high pitched humming sound in the ear. There is no downtime and patients can go back to work immediately after the procedure. This procedure can also be repeated after 1 month.

     

    Arogywam Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Surgery Clinic offers all these three methods with best in class imported machines. The procedure is performed by trained and experienced nurses in our clinic. We are the most popular clinic for Non Invasive Fat Removal methods in Guwahati and the North East.

     

    All these methods can be done individually or in combination depending the amount of fat. For example, someone may opt to do only Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting once monthly for three months, or Radiofrequency once monthly for three months. All three procedures can also be done in combination. Best results are obtained when all three procedures are done in combination. 

    When used in combination, the recommended schedule is:

    First Month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    2nd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: Rf

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    3rd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    Non Invasive Fat Removal methods are the latest gift of scientific advances and have become extremely popular throughout the world. They give us the ability to target the fat in problem areas and thus are a boon for those with problem areas of fat. These procedures are not meant for overall weight reduction and they work best in people who are already following a diet and exercise regime but want to target small pockets of fat which stubborrnly persist. As we all want to look our best, these techniques can be used to get the physique that we desire.

  • Thigh fat removal treatment by Cryolipolysis/CoolSculpting
    Thigh fat removal | Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting in Guwahati

    #How do I get rid of the fat in my thighs? What is the best treatment for fat thighs?

    #Is there any non surgical fat removal method to remove the fat in my thighs?

    # Where is the best Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting procedure in Assam for my thigh fat?

    Extra fat in the thighs is something that causes a great deal of worry among many people. No one in this age and time wants to have fat thighs. Diet and exercise are the mainstay of getting rid of extra  fat, but many times we see that even with a good diet and exercise regime, after controlling our weight and having an overall satisfactory physique, we still retain fat in some areas, one of the commonest such areas with fat retention is the thighs.

    A good diet and exercise regime is essentail to control our weight. Food is like the input and exercise the output of the body, increase in input over output will lead to weight gain and increase in output over input will lead to weight loss. Thus the first step we need to take when we have fat thighs is reduce our weight to a satisfactory level so that it falls within the normal BMI range.

    But even after achieving a normal weight, we might find that we have fat thighs. This is because the body retains fat preferentially in some areas like the tthighs, belly, back, arms, etc. Such retained fat is not reduced easily and would require very heavy dieting and exercise, which can lead to loss of fat in out face giving a tired look.

    It is in this that modern technology has been a great boon for us. Modern science has invented some methods which allow us to target fat in specific areas safely and effectively.

    The best method to get rid of localised fat is Liposuction. This is however a surgical method and has its attendant risks and side effects.

    Alternatives to Liposuction are the modern Non Surgical Fat Removal methods. The three most important methods are: Cryolipolysis, Radiofrequency and Ultrasound.

    Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting:

    Cryolipolysis or Coolsculpting utilizes the principle of cooling to target the fat layer. Fat cells cool earlier than other cells like skin or muscle, and get frozen and hence destroyed faster. The handle of the machine has a vaccum cup which sucks in a cup sized area and subjects it to controlled cooling, which cools and destroys the fat cells.

    It is a very safe and effective method for targetting pockets of fat. The handle can be used on the thigh areas with high fat. The process takes 30 minutes on each side. It is virtually painless. There are no worrisome side effects and patients can go back to work immediately after the procedure. Full results are seen 1 to 2 months after the procedure. It can be repeated after 1 month.

    Radiofrequency:

    Radiofrequency application uses a oscillating low voltage current to heat up the fat layers under the skin. As the rapidly oscillating current is passed between the tissues it heats up the fat layer causing the fat cells to discharge the lipids and also destroys some of the fat cells. IT is very safe and effective. Some heat sensation may be felt in the area but it is not painful. Some result may be seen immediately after the procedure but full results take 1 month. The procedure takes 30 minutes. There is no downtime and patients can go back to work immediately. This can also be repeated after 1 month.

    Ultrasound

    Ultrasound therapy uses the energy of very high frequency sounds to taget the fat layer. As the high energy sound waves are applied to the skin, it creates vaccum pockets in the fat layers which collapse distorting the fat cells so that they expel some of the lipids, and some fat cells also get damaged in the process.

    It is a very safe and effective method. There are no side effects. Patients will hear a humming noise in their ears during the procedure. It takes about 30 minutes for the procedure. Patients can go back to work immediately after the procedure. This can also be repeated after 1 month.

    For best effects, all three procedures should be done as they act on different types of fat. The three procedures can be done singly or as a package. When done in combination, the general routine is:

    First Month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    2nd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: Rf

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    3rd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    All these treatments can be done individually also and not in combination, depending on the amount of fat. For example, someone may opt to do only a single session of Cryolipolysis, or a single session of Radiofrequency application, or they may choose to do say, 3 monthly sessions of Cryolipolysis, for example. It depends on the amount of fat in the thighs. For best results all three methods should be done withing 3 months. It can be paid for as a package.

    These procedures are not for overall reduction of weight. They work best in those who are already adhering to a strict diet and exercise regime but want to treat localised fat bulges which persist even after a normal weight is attained.

    Arogyam Hair Transplant and Cosmetic Surgery Clinic has the most advanced imported machine which gives the best results for Non Surgical Fat Removal. The treatment is done by experienced nurses who are trained in all procedures. Full privacy and discretion is maintained.

  • How to get rid of Arm fat safely and easily with Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting
    Arm fat removal | Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting in Guwahati

    # How do I get rid of the fat in my arms? What is the best treatment for fat arms?

    # Is there any NonSurgical Fat Loss method to get rid of this fat in my arms?

    # Where is the best Non Surgical Fat Loss treatment /Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting in Guwahati, Assam for the fat in my arms?

    Have you ever looked at your arms and wished they were a little slimmer? Discontent with their arm thickness is a very common complaint for both men and women. The most common reason for this is overall increased fat, but often there is more fat in the arms even when the overall weight is satisfactory. This fat proves to be stubborn and difficult to get rid of even after a strict regimen of diet control and exercise.

    Food is the input of the body and exercise the output. When input is more than the output we will gain weight and when output is more than the input we will lose weight. Hence controlling our dietary intake and exercising more is the first step to losing weight and decreasing the fat in our body. This by itself is certain to bring down the arm size.

    But quite often many people find that even when maintaining diet control and exercising well, and when the overall weight is satisfactory and the body looks slim, fat continues to persist in certain pockets like the arms.

    This is because the body has a tendency to deposit fat in certain pockets, like the abdomen, under the chin, arms, back, thighs, etc. These fat pockets are difficult to get rid of even when we have reduced the overall fat content in our bodies. To remove them we would have to go to such extreme lengths that the fat layer in our whole body would have to come down considerably and that would give us a tired and thin look.

    One of the most effective ways to remove such fat pockets is liposuction. This is a surgical procedure where fat in such regions is lysed and sucked out surgically. This is however a surgical method and has its own risks and difficulties, 

     

     

    Modern science has however given us alternatives to get rid of localised fat in a non invasive manner. Several new machines and procedures have been developed which destroy the fat without any invasive procedure and in a very safe and effective manner.

    The three main methods are:

    Cryolipolysis

    Radiofrequency

    Ultrasound

    Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpting

    Cryolipolysis or Coolsculpting or Fat Freezing is a very effective and safe method which enables us to treat localised pockets of fat and get rid of them without any surgical procedure. This method depends on the principle that fat freezes faster than other tissues and hence gets destroyed without causing any harm to the muscles, skin, etc. The handle of the cryolipolysis machine has a suction cup which draws in the fat and skin on the arms which is then subjected to controlled cooling. This causes the fat cells to freeze and die off, and they are cleared off in about a month's time, leaving the fat content in the arms considerably decreased.

    It is a very safe and effective treatment without any serious side effects. There is no downtime at all and the patient can go back to work immediately. It takes about 30 minutes for the procedure. It can be repeated after 1 month.

    Radiofrequency

    Radiofrequency application uses a rapidly oscillating electric current that passes through the fat layer under the skin to heat up the layer and thus cause thermal damage to it. As the voltage is very low there is no risk. But the rapid oscillations heat up the fat layer primarily and causes release of lipids from the fat cells and also damages the fat cells to some extent leading to their resorption. Thus there is decrease in the fat layer without any side effects.

    Radiofrequency is a very safe process and there are virtually no side effects. It is very effective and some result can be seen almost immediately after the process is over. Full results take 1 month to appear. It takes about 40 minutes. There is no pain though there may be feeling of heating which is always kept under the pain threshold. There is no downtime and the patient can go back to work immediately. This also can be repeated after 1 month.

    Ultrasound treatment

    Ultrasound treatment uses very high frequency ultrasound to target the fat layer. The high energy of the ultrasound causes formation of cavitations inside the fat layer and this disrupts and damages the fat cells, leading to release of the fat cells and also destroying the fat cells to some extent. Thus the fat layer is reduced safely and effectively.

    The process takes about 40 minutes. There is no side effect at all and the process is very safe. The patient will hear a loud humming sound in the ear. There is no downtime and the patient can go back to work immediately once the process is over. It is very effective and some result can be seen after the procedure, though full results take 1 month. This procedure can also be repeated after 1 month.

    For best results, a combination of all three methods should be done. All these three methods target fat in different ways, and thus their results are additive. For a combination of all three methods, the following schedule is recommended:

    When used in combination, the recommended schedule is:

    First Month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    2nd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: Rf

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    3rd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    At Arogyam Cosmetic Surgery Clinic, all these methods are available with a most advanced imported machine. The procedures are done by expert and trained nurses. Full privacy is maintained. 

    These three methods can be done in combination or singly, according to the person's choice and the amount of fat. A person may do only a single method in monthly sessions, or he/she may do a single session of any one method, if the fat layer is not so thick. Or he can go for a single month treatment only of one session of all three methods, etc. The whole package can be paid for in a single payment as a package, or individual sessions can be paid for. The package payment is cheaper.

    These procedures are not meant for overall weight reduction. They work best in those who have a satisfactory weight and are following a good diet and exercise regime but want to target persistent fat pockets in certain areas.

    Modern technology has taken great strides in health care. Non-invasive fat reduction methods are one such advance of technology. When used along with diet control and exercise, they are a very effective treatment in giving us the physique of our choice.

    Get rid of Back fat with Cryolipolysis/Coolsculpt

    # I have a lot of fat in my back which is persistent. How do I get rid of the fat in my back/ bra bulge?

    # What is the best Non Surgical fat removal method for back fat?

    # Where is the best Cryolipolysis /Coolscultping/ Fat Freezing treatment available for back fat in Guwahati, Assam?

    Many people have a tendency to accumulate fat in the back which over time gives rise to a less than elegant appearance. The problem is that such fat is difficult to get rid of. Often we find that even after dieting and exercise, and after getting to a reasonably satisfactory weight, we still have accumulated fat in areas which are next to impossilbe to remove. Back is one such problem area which causes problems in a lot of people.

    The best way to reduce fat and weight is diet control and exercise. Food is essentially our input and exercise is output, when input is more than output we will gain fat and weight and when output is more than input we will lose fat and weight. So we need to increase exercise and reduce food in order to lose weight and with that, fat. Losing fat and maintaining optimal weight is also necessary for leading a healthy and disease free life.

    But even after reducing our weight to a satisfactory level, we often find that there are areas of localized fat bulges. These bulges are difficult to get rid of even with a strict exercise regime and diet control. This is because our bodies are programmed to store fat in certain areas  such as the stomach, back, arms, chin, etc. This stored fat is stored in a certain type of fat cell which is persistent and difficult to kill off even with strict dieting and exercise.

    This is where we can think of alternative means of getting rid of these fat bulges. The commonest and still the best way to get rid of such fat bulges is surgical lipolysis. This is however a surgical procedure which entails admission in a hospital, anesthesia, etc and carries some inherent risks associated with surgery.

    Now however there is an alternative to invasive lipolysis. Modern science has given us the technological means to target localized fat with non invasive methods. The three most important non-invasive methods which have been scientifically proven in various studies are Cryolipolysis, RadioFrequency and Ultrasound therapy.

    Cryolipolysis / Cool sculpting:

    Cryolipolysis / Coolsculpting /Fat Freezing is the most efficient and best way to get rid of fat bulges permanently. This process depends on the cooling process. Fat cells are more vulnerable to cooling than the other cells like skin and muscle cells. Thhe procedure uses a cup like handle which is attached to the area to be treated and sucks in skin along with the subcutaneous fat. Cooling is then applied to the area for 45 minutes which causes the fat cells to freeze and get destroyed, while skin and other tissues are not damaged. These killed fat cells are removed by the body's phagocytic process which gets rid of around 20% fat per session. The sessions can be repeated every month.

     

    RadioFrequency:

    Radiofrequency is another non-invasive method which helps to get rid of localized fat bulges. This uses the principle of rapidly oscillating electric current which passes between two poles pressed on the skin. The current is of low voltage so that it does not cause harm, but as it passes very fast between the two poles it heats up the tissue lying at some depth, and this heat causes thermal injury to the deeper layers of the skin and the fat cell layer. Thus it causes thinning of the fat cell layer and at the same time it causes tightening of the skin due to increased collagen formation. RF thus has a dual impact on fat layers, causing both decrease of fat thickness and tightening of the skin. The sessions can be repeated every month.

    One session of RD lasts for 40 minutes. It is totally painless and the patient will not feel anything except some heating of the tissues which is kept below the threshold of pain. Results are seen immediately and within 2-3 days.

     

    Ultrasound cavitation:

    Ultrasound cavitation uses the principle of sound waves at very high frequencies to hit the fat cell layer causing the high energy from the sound waves to disrupt the layer, thus injuring the fat cells and causing them to decrease. Ultrasound cavitation is also a very safe and effective method of decreasing the fat layer without causing harm to any other tissue.

    Each session lasts for 40 minutes. It is completely painless and the patient will not feel anything. A buzzing or high pitched sound may be heard in the ears. Results are immediate and best results occur within 2-3 days. It can be repeated after 1 month.

     

    These three methods are used in combination in Arogyam Cosmetic Surgery Clinic to give the best results to each patient. The three methods act in different ways and achieve their goals through different technologies. A combination of all three methods is ideal for having an effect on all the different types of fat and getting the best results.

    The techniques can also be used alone. Patients can opt for a single session of any one method or multiple sessions, or combine all three methods. Each of these will cause decrease of fat and results can be verified immediately in case of RF and Ultrasound.

    When used in combination, the recommended schedule is:

    First Month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    2nd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: Rf

    Week 3: Ultrasound

    3rd month:

    Week 1: Cryolipolysis

    Week 2: RF

    Week 3: Ultrasound

     

    Each session can be paid for independently or this entire package can be paid for in a single payment, which will be less costly.

    Non Invasive Surgical methods of fat removal are not meant for overall fat reduction. They work best in those who are already following a good diet and exercise regime but want to target stubborn fat pockets in certain areas.

    Non-invasive methods of fat removal, while relatively new, are increasing in popularity hugely. Though they are not a substitute for exercise and diet control, yet they can be very useful for those who are frustrated with localised fat bulges.
