With the rise of social media and the constant pressure to have a perfect body, it’s no wonder that many people are turning to non-invasive treatments like CoolSculpting. But before booking your appointment, you may be wondering: Is there downside to CoolSculpting?
In this blog post, we’ll explore the procedure’s ins and outs, including its advantages and disadvantages.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
Let’s first discuss how CoolSculpting works. This treatment uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells, without damaging surrounding tissue, to achieve a slimmer and more sculpted appearance.
What Are the Advantages of CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is FDA approved and has shown to be extremely effective in permanently reducing stubborn fat in areas like the abdomen, back, thighs, and arms.
One of the biggest pros of CoolSculpting is that it’s non-invasive, meaning there’s no surgery or downtime required.
Many people also report feeling little to no pain during the treatment compared to other fat reduction treatments like liposuction and are able to resume their normal activities right away.
Is There Downside to CoolSculpting?
If you’re considering this treatment, you may be wondering: Is there downside to CoolSculpting?
For patients that are looking to shed pounds, there’s a notable downside to CoolSculpting in that it’s not a weight loss solution.
More specifically, the treatment is best for those who are already near their ideal weight and want to target specific areas where they have stubborn fat.
Additionally, results can take several weeks to months to fully show, and multiple treatments may be needed to achieve the desired outcome.
Does CoolSculpting Have Any Side Effects?
It’s also important to note that CoolSculpting is not without risks. While most patients do not experience any adverse events, some may have temporary redness, bruising, and numbness in the treated area.
More serious complications such as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia have also been reported in less than 0.005% of patients.
