5 Things You Need To Know If You Are Considering CoolSculpting


Looking to lose stubborn fat on specific areas of your body? Then you may be wondering whether to go for laser lipolysis, liposuction, deoxycholic acid injections, or the dozens of other fat reduction treatments. However, there is one fat loss procedure that is non-invasive, safe, and actually works, which is freezing your fat. We are talking about CoolSculpting (or fat freezing).


With over 6 million successful treatments done since it’s inception, it is easy to see why CoolSculpting outperforms the competition. Also known as a “fat freeze” procedure, patients that undergo the procedure see a reduction of between 20 to 25 percent of fat in the treated areas.


If you are looking to burn those bulging fat areas, here are some things you should know about CoolSculpting:


1) Safe, precise, and scientifically proven


CoolSculpting, also known as Cryolipolisis, is a safe fat reduction procedure that was developed by two doctors from the United States. The procedure involves the use of low temperatures to cool and freeze body cells in order to remove stubborn fat permanents.


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has given CoolSculpting a stamp of approval as an effective medical treatment. 


2) The fat is actually burned away


The fat freeze procedure crystallizes and kills fatty tissue. The dead cells are then naturally removed from the body through the liver. A single fat freeze treatment can get rid of 20 to 25 percent of fat cells in the treated area. This makes the procedure an excellent option for those looking to get rid of extra bulges on specific areas like the thighs, stomach, and under the arms.


  1. 3) Non-invasive, relatively painless and has no downtime

Don’t let the term “fat freeze” scare you. Fat freezing is safe and patients have reported an 86 percent satisfaction rate. Typically, you will experience the sensation of suction, a firm grab, followed by a cold feeling. However, the area being treated will also be numb at the same time. Therefore, you won’t experience any pain. After the procedure, the area being treated will be massaged for about 2 to 5 minutes. The massage can, however, be mildly uncomfortable.


  1. 4) There are possible side effects

The side effects of CoolSculpting are mild and limited to localized reactions. Very few people experience side effects after the procedure. Some probable side effects that you may experience on the treated areas include:


  • Delayed-onset of pain
  • Aching, stinging, or pain
  • Redness, bruising, or swelling 
  • Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH)


The best thing about undergoing CoolSculpting is that there are no scars, reactions, or painful days for recuperating.


  1. 5) CoolSculpting is NOT a weight loss treatment like liposuction

Fat freezing is not liposuction nor a weight loss treatment. However, the procedure can help to sculpt your body and boost your confidence.

With both CoolSculpting and liposuction, fat cells are removed permanently from the body. However, liposuction involves surgery while the former is non-invasive.

If you need to lose a large amount of weight and fat, go for liposuction. On the other hand, if you are looking to get rid of stubborn fat in particular areas of your body, the fat freeze procedure would be an excellent option.
