If you have come across pictures of the incredible transformations being achieved through Coolsculpting you know that it is effective, but is Coolsculpting safe?
We explore the answer to this and other common questions below.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a body contouring treatment that uses temperature freezing technology to remove fat cells from your body without any surgery or downtime.
During a treatment session with CoolSculpting, your physician will target a specific area of body fat and freeze the fat cells in that area until they die.
These fat cells are then removed from your body through your natural metabolic process.
Is Coolsculpting Safe?
Coolsculpting has been deemed safe and effective by the FDA based on hundreds of clinical and safety studies.
In fact, CoolSculpting is lauded as one of the safest and effective options for nonsurgical fat removal on the market.
The most common side effects associated with the treatment include numbness, tingling, bruising, and redness at the treatment site.
This is normal and should resolve within a day or so after your treatment session.
How to Alleviate Coolsculpting Side Effects
Over the counter painkillers such as ibuprofen can help combat any pain from your treatment.
As far as bruising, redness and numbness, your physician can apply a light bandage or ointments to the area to minimize any discomfort.
