Is Coolscuplting Effective?
Coolsculpting is a procedure that is designed to target small, stubborn pockets of fat left behind from diet and fitness efforts due to genetics or other factors. It is sometimes used in conjunction with other therapies or procedures to optimize results.
Does Coolsculpting Really Work
Coolsculpting therapy is based on solid science. Fat cells die at much higher temperatures than skin, muscle, nerve and bone cells. Therefore, applying lowered temperatures directly to fat cells destroys them. The body then reabsorbs the material. Coolsculpting has been proven a safe and effective alternative to invasive surgical procedures for removing small pockets of fat left behind by fitness and exercise efforts.
Coolsculpting Side Effects
There are very few side effects associated with the Coolsculpting procedure, but there are a few that you should be aware of. First, during the procedure, you may experience a ‘tugging” sensation as the area is worked on. This will last the duration of the treatment, but should not be unduly uncomfortable. Second, some patients report pain, stinging, or aching at the treatment site that can last up to three weeks following treatment as the body works to reabsorb the leftover material. This is normal and will go away on its own in time. Meanwhile, your doctor may recommend an OTC pain reliever. Finally, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or sensitivity at the treatment site.
