CoolSculpting is a highly effective med spa body contouring procedure for people seeking to get rid of too much fat in problem areas. It freezes and eliminates fat cells in a non-surgical manner. But the long-term impacts of the treatment, positive as well as negative, may be a concern for some patients.
Any new patient would like to know: How sustainable are the outcomes? Will freezing cause an adverse effect on the body’s shape or lead to tissue damage?
The noteworthy news is that CoolSculpting does not lead to any long-term harmful effects. The patient may feel pain or soreness for some days after the treatment. Besides that, they can enjoy their new body without any anxiety or future concerns.
Motykie Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie, provides essential, perspicacious, and proven non-surgical CoolSculpting treatment to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding communities.
Safe and Effective Procedure
The freezing action of CoolSculpting only affects the fat cells as they are the only part of the body that can freeze at significantly cold temperatures. The blood vessels, nerves, and skin are water-based, and therefore they will not freeze.
Additionally, the CoolSculpting med spa procedure does not lead to the development of any lumps or hanging skin. It has been designed such that the fat reduction appears very natural.
Researchers have been able to study the long-term impacts of CoolSculpting with over three million CoolSculpting procedures already having been undertaken worldwide. At this time, there are no adverse long-term effects of CoolSculpting that have been reported.
This is a unique procedure as the body naturally eliminates the frozen fat cells forever. However, CoolSculpting is not meant for weight loss and is not comparable to a weight loss surgery. It is a treatment for fat reduction.
Reliability of CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting’s foundation is the treatment principle of cryolipolysis. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) provided cryolipolysis approval for fat reduction in the flanks in the year 2010, abdomen in 2012, thighs in 2014, and the submental region in 2015.
Cryolipolysis is a sought-after non-surgical body contouring procedure due to its effectiveness, safety, sustainability, and tolerability. According to published research, the longevity of the fat reduction was demonstrated through tests on two patients who received a single cryolipolysis flank treatment.
Both patients continued to sustain fat reduction results for up to five years after the initial CoolSculpting treatment.
Possible Fat Loss
The CoolSculpting treatment makes use of controlled cooling to remove small amounts of undesirable fat from the targeted sites, such as the love handles. Fat cells have an adverse reaction to cold temperatures. This enables 20 to 25% of subcutaneous fat to be eliminated in the area with every treatment session.
Rare Side Effect
CoolSculpting may lead to some mild and short-term side effects. Certain patients experience mild pain, redness, inflammation or bruising after their CoolSculpting treatment. However, these side-effects usually resolve in a few days.
Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is a highly rare and delayed side-effect of CoolSculpting that occurs in 1 out of every 20,000 patients resulting in the development of adipose tissue in the treated site two to five months post-treatment.
