CoolSculpting Side Effects and Risks
CoolSculpting is America’s favorite non-invasive fat reduction treatment that reduces stubborn fat without surgery or downtime. This revolutionary body contouring treatment uses innovative cooling technology to safely and effective freeze away fat cells that accumulate and make up notorious problem areas such as belly fat, love handles, inner and outer thigh fat, upper arm fat, bra bulge, double chins and more. While this FDA cleared treatment is a safe and effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction there are some symptoms you should expect to experience following your treatment and there are certain precautions you should take when choosing a CoolSculpting provider to ensure your safety.
Cool Sculpting Risk
CoolSculpting has an impressive safety profile. Besides clearance from the FDA, CoolSculpting’s safety has been demonstrated in numerous clinical studies. One study, “Cryolipolysis For Noninvasive Body Contouring” published in the journal of Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology, found “Cryolipolysis has been proven to be a very safe method for body contouring, and is accomplished with only minimal discomfort.” The researchers concluded, “Cryolipolysis is considered to be both safe and efficient with a high patient satisfaction rate.”
Another study, “Safety, tolerance, and patient satisfaction with noninvasive cryolipolysis,” published in the journal of Dermatological Surgery, followed 518 CoolSculpting patients. The researchers noted, “No significant side effects or adverse events were reported,” and added “the procedure was well-tolerated, with 89% of respondents reporting a positive perception of treatment duration and 96% reporting minimal to tolerable discomfort.” The study concluded, “With proper patient selection, cryolipolysis is a safe, well-tolerated, and effective treatment method for reduction of subcutaneous fat.”
As with any medical procedure, there is always risk. Considering that CoolSculpting is a safe and non-invasive treatment, the best way to eliminate CoolSculpting risk is to select a skilled and experienced provider. Ensure that you receive fat freezing treatments from only certified CoolSculpting providers. There are many knock off CoolSculpting machines on the markets and pseudo providers, who say they will freeze your fat at highly discounted prices, but these providers are not trained, not certified, and put your safety at great risk.
The safest, most effective way to freeze your fat without the worry of CoolSculpting side effects or risks is to choose trained medical professionals, such as Dr. Fawad Ghafoori, and his experienced team of CoolSculpting technicians to perform your treatment.
CoolSculpting Side Effects
While CoolSculpting side effects are rare, there are several symptoms that you may experience following your CoolSculpting treatment that are associated with an immune response as your body goes to work collecting and processing the frozen fat cells out of your body.
These symptoms include mild tenderness, bruising, redness, or swelling at the treatment site. Symptoms resolve on their own and typically pass within one to two weeks after your treatment.
