CoolSculpting Side Effects

CoolSculpting is the #1 fat reduction method used to eliminate fat cells from stubborn problem areas like the belly or thighs. Many patients choose to freeze their fat as a safe alternative to liposuction due to CoolSculpting’s high safety profile. While CoolSculpting is a safe procedure FDA cleared to reduce fat cells, patients need to take precautions to ensure you receive the best treatment possible.

CoolSculpting’s High Safety Profile

CoolSculpting is hailed for its safety. It is one of the safest cosmetic treatments available today. In addition to FDA clearance, CoolSculpting’s safety is backed by several clinical studies. “Safety, tolerance, and patient satisfaction with noninvasive cryolipolysis,” a comprehensive study found in the journal of Dermatological Surgery, gathered information on more than 500 CoolSculpting patients. The authors of the study found, “No significant side effects or adverse events were reported,” and added “the procedure is well-tolerated, with 89% of [subjects having] a positive perception of treatment duration and 96% [of subjects] reporting minimal discomfort.” The authors concluded, “cryolipolysis is a safe, well-tolerated, and effective treatment method for reduction of subcutaneous fat.”

CoolSculpting Side Effects

CoolSculpting side effects are increasingly rare. Some patients do, however, experience post-treatment symptoms caused by a natural immune response. Cryolipolysis causes the body’s lymphatic system to work after the treatment as it gathers the frozen fat cells and processes them out of the body as a form of waste. Patient symptoms can include redness, bruising, tenderness, and swelling around the treatment site. The symptoms are mild and resolve themselves within a week or two.

Similarly, even if a CoolSculpting provider is reputable and certified, it is important to find one with ample experience and expert treatment specialists on staff. This is important because CoolSculpting is a technique sensitive procedure. The person who performs your fat freezing procedure influences the experiences and the outcome. This means that the more skilled and knowledgeable the treatment specialist is, the less likely you will experience side effects.
