Is CoolSculpting Safe?

When it comes to getting rid of fat through cosmetic procedures, most people have heard of liposuction. You may have even heard of other means of fat removal, such as ultrasound treatment and laser therapy, but now there is a new method called CoolSculpting. So, is it safe to use?

The short answer is yes. Other methods of cosmetic weight control are considerably more invasive. Liposuction, for instance, is a fairly invasive treatment. Because it is an actual elective surgery, it does come with its own set of risks. Are they the same as open heart surgery? No, but it does require the use of anaesthetics in order to perform the procedure. The sudden weight loss also requires surgery to remove the extra skin remaining on the body in order to achieve the desired results. As a result, liposuction is something that you need to seriously discuss with your doctor before proceeding with treatment.

For other, less invasive procedures, the element of risk is minimal, but the approach is significantly different. Ultrasound treatment involves using radio waves to break up the fat in the body, and although people do boast that it does, in fact, work, there are questions as to just how effective it is.

The other major treatment uses those nifty little things that have gotten so common these days and seem to have a million and one uses: lasers. With laser treatment, the fat in your body is burned away with those interesting little miracles of technology. There are some, however, who do have a bit of reluctance to get involved with a laser burning away parts of their bodies!

So, enter in the new and most interesting way of getting rid of fat. It also asked and answered a basic question about how to get rid of extra weight. If a laser can burn away the fat, why can’t you just freeze it away? That is what CoolSculpting does.

CoolSculpting actually targets the desired fat in your body and then freezes it away! Now, that you know what it does and what the alternatives are, you would probably want to know just how safe it is.

This treatment is like the last two we mentioned, one of the least invasive treatments out there, and has minimal side effects. This treatment carries no real risk with it and is considered to be among the safer treatments out there, and don’t worry, you won’t accidentally get frozen doing it! The treatment involves targeting a very specific part of the body and that is exactly where the fat is. It can only treat that specific area and no others. It’s actually impossible for it to treat more than a small part of the body at one time.

So, if you’re concerned about how safe CoolSculpting, don’t worry. The most you might experience from the treatment is a bit of discomfort in the area being treated. Other than that, the recovery time is minimal. Just be sure to consult with your doctor, first!
