No incisions, no downtime, no lengthy appointments, no scarring, no more unwanted fat. Sounds great! But, is CoolSculpting really safe? Is it effective? Here’s what you need to know about this super trendy fat-freezing treatment!
Is CoolSculpting Really Safe? Here’s the Truth
Freezing your skin seems scary, so you may be wondering “is CoolSculpting really safe?” The answer is yes! Many studies have found that cryolipolysis is safe and effective. While there are risks, as with any cosmetic treatment, they are rare.
During the treatment process, you’ll likely feel a tugging sensation on your skin along with intense cold. Afterward, you may feel sore and may experience mild swelling. Rarely do patients experience mild or moderate pain.
The most serious side effect of CoolSculpting is paradoxical fat hyperplasia (PAH). This is when treatment has the opposite effect than what’s intended. Instead of fat cells decreasing, they harden and grow larger. However, research shows that PAH is extremely rare, occurring in less than 1% of cases.
Where Can CoolSculpting Be Used? Can It Treat Love Handles? Bra Fat? Double Chins?
CoolSculpting is FDA-approved for multiple areas of the body, including:
- Under the butt
- Upper arms
- Bra line
- Chest (in males)
Be aware that final results may take a few months to appear, as it takes time for the lymphatic system to completely get rid of the dead fat cells.
