Do you want to get CoolSculpting done, but are worried about the side effects?
The FDA has recognized CoolSculpting as a safe and effective way to get rid of excess fat.
Even clinical studies have proven its safety.
However, as with other procedures, CoolSculpting has some side effects.
Besides, the treatment is not for everyone.
Let’s learn more about the side effects and if this is safe for you.
What Is CoolSculpting?
It is an FDA-approved, non-surgical process to get rid of excess fat. It works by freezing the excess fat cells to death.
The best part…
It is not painful, and there is no downtime.
CoolSculpting Side Effects
As discussed before, there can be dangers to everything. However, what you should consider is the degree of danger.
The side effects of CoolSculpting are mild, and they resolve on their own.
Some common side effects include:
It is normal to feel slight pain, aching, or stinging in the treated area. This is because of the intense cold temperature involved during the process.
Research shows that pain may last for 3 to 11 days and go away independently.
The cold temperature can irritate your skin. This irritation can also cause:
- Skin sensitivity
- Temporary skin discoloration
These problems subside within a few days.
Growth of fat cells
This is a rare side effect when the fat cells grow larger in the treated area rather than smaller.
Tips To Prevent Side Effects
While the side effects are rare and mild, you can reduce their risk by considering the following:
Are you the right candidate?
CoolSculpting is not safe and effective for everyone.
People who have fat bulges in concerned body areas and could not get rid of them through dieting and exercise are ideal candidates for the treatment.
Besides, it may not be safe for individuals with long-standing conditions such as kidney problems.
So, it is best to consult your physician before getting the treatment.
