More and more people are adopting healthier lifestyles, yet they still have a build-up of fatty tissue or “tummy rolls” that are difficult to shift, no matter how hard we try. According to a recent study, excess fat localised in specific areas of the body is the top concern for men, and the second for women. In fact, 60% of those questioned would be willing to undergo non-surgical treatment to get rid of it.
Critical areas Abdomen (for 79%), flanks (56%) inner and outer thigh (37% and 32% respectively) and arms (24%). When it comes to solution, 80% prefer non-surgical treatment and only 6% would opt for surgery.
In this post we will give you all the information for effectively removing those localised build-up of fat than concern you so much.
You´ll be amazed to find out everything you can do to solve this problem. One piece of advice: cold treatments are your best ally. To find out more, keep reading…
What is localised fat?
Localised fat is characterised by the disproportionate increase in fat cells located in the hypodermis. It tends to accumulate in the thighs and abdomen, and it is one of the most difficult things to shift (it tends to be stubborn), without resorting to treatment.
Each one of use can accumulate localised fat in any specific area of the body, however the lower abdomen, buttocks and outer thighs are the most common of these.
Localised fat deposits are found in the subcutaneous part of the skin and are very different from visceral fat, i.e. the fat covering the organs.
What is the the best solution for removing localised fat?
Cryolipolysis is scientifically effective, safe and non-invasive technique for removing stubborn fat that does not respond to a healthy diet or exercise regime. Specialists agree that it works especially well in people who are not overweight but accumulate localised fat on the belly, hips, inner thighs, knees, arms or bra line.
This treatment manages to eliminate the adipocytes using cold therapy. At Nordetia we use a safe and effective technology, CryocoolMax, which keeps the temperature at -8º C, to ensure the safety of the client, freezing the fat in the area to be treated.
This is possible because adipocytes or fat cells are highly sensitive to cold. Subjecting adipose tissue to low temperatures causes apoptosis or planned cell death.
Who are the best candidates for cryolipolysis?
The “ideal” client is one at a normal weight but with localised areas of fat, normally on the flanks and abdomen, or those who are slightly overweight. The results are an evident reduction in weight measurement and therefore in volume, around 1 and 3 cm per session.
Which are the areas where localised fat can be removed?
- Double chin
- Inner knee
- Inner thigh
It is important to remember that localised fat removal treatment reduces the volume of fat, but they are not slimming methods.
Are the results of cryolipolysis permanent?
Yes. The fat cells removed during the procedure will not return. The body’s metabolism will eliminate them, but it must be remembered that the results will be much more effective is combined with a balanced diet and taking some kind of regular exercise.
Which areas of the body are the most commonly treated using cryolipolysis in men? And women?
Women are the ones who request this type of treatment most often, yet more and more men are starting to take the plunge and find out about the benefits. Men are most concerned about the abdomen and flanks.
Women tend to choose, primarily, the flanks, abdomen and hips, areas where the most stubborn fat usually builds up, fat that is difficult to remove with healthy eating and physical exercise.
What time of year is the most advisable to undergo cryolipolysis?
The results of these treatments do not take long to appear and recovery is immediate, meaning that any time of year, even the summer, is ideal for receiving them.
Can you go back to a normal routine after cryolipolysis?
Yes, immediately. The only side effect is that after the treatment there may be some bruising in the treated area which will disappear completely in a few days.
