CoolSculpting Risks and Side Effects

CoolSculpting is the most popular noninvasive fat reduction treatment that reduces diet and exercise-resistant fat cells without surgery. Many people choose CoolSculpting over liposuction because it is so safe and effective compared to invasive surgery with a long recovery time. While CoolSculpting is a safe, FDA cleared procedure with millions of successful treatments; there are some precautions patients can take to avoid any possibility of CoolSculpting risks or side effects.

CoolSculpting’s High Safety Profile

CoolSculpting is known for its high safety. It is not only FDA cleared, but CoolSculpting also has countless clinical studies to strengthen its safety profile. “Safety, tolerance, and patient satisfaction with noninvasive cryolipolysis,” an extensive study published in the Journal of Dermatological Surgery, gathered information on more than 500 CoolSculpting patients. The researchers found “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.” They concluded, “With the proper patient selection, cryolipolysis is a safe, well-tolerated, and effective treatment method for reduction of subcutaneous fat.”

These results were further substantiated by the study, “Cryolipolysis For Noninvasive Body Contouring,” published in Clinical, Cosmetic and Investigational Dermatology. In this study, researchers 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.”


CoolSculpting Risks

CoolSculpting risks are rare. Some patients do, however, experience post-treatment symptoms associated with an immune response. After the CoolSculpting treatment, the body’s lymphatic system gathers the frozen fat cells. It processes them out of the body as a form of waste. The immune response symptoms include redness, bruising, tenderness, and mild swelling at the treatment site. Those symptoms usually resolve themselves within a week or two.


Eliminate CoolSculpting Risks by Selecting a Reputable Provider

When selecting a CoolSculpting provider, it is crucial to find the most reputable, trained specialists in your area. CoolSculpting risks and side effects tend to occur due to technician error. To avoid any possible risks or side effects after a fat freezing treatment, you should find a reputable medical spa with knowledgeable treatment technicians on staff.
