What Are The Side-Effects Of CoolSculpting?

Are you struggling with diet and exercise-resistant fat? Try CoolSculpting! CoolSculpting is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that has gained a reputation for providing impressive body contouring results. It is an innovative treatment that can reduce fat in the targeted area by up to 25% with just one treatment. But how does CoolSculpting work and what are the side-effects?

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling or cryolipolysis to freeze away unwanted fat. The system selectively freezes fat cells without harming the surrounding cells, nerves, and tissue. The treated fat cells crystallize and die and are eventually expelled from the body over the following weeks as waste.

A single CoolSculpting session can take 35-60 minutes. There is no downtime after CoolSculpting so patients can resume normal activities immediately.

Initial results can be seen about 3 weeks after treatment but it can take up to 6 months for the final results to show.

While CoolSculpting has a very good safety record there are some mild side-effects that can occur (Click here to learn more).

What Are The Side-Effects Of CoolSculpting?

During CoolSculpting patients typically experience sensations of tugging, pulling, and mild pinching as the applicator pulls in the fatty tissue. The skin will also feel intensely cold, but this should subside once the targeted area becomes numb after about 5-10 minutes.
After CoolSculpting there may be some temporary redness, tingling, and numbness at the treatment area but these side-effects usually go away after a few days.

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

CoolSculpting can treat the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, back, beneath the buttocks (banana roll), upper arms, bra line, and submental area (double chin).
