CoolSculpting: Does it Work as a Fat Freezing Treatment?

CoolSculpting is yet another similar process as liposuction and plastic surgeries that are followed by therapists to remove fat from a specific part of the body. The best thing about CoolSculpting is that it doesn’t involve any kind of surgery, cuts or anesthetic and hence lesser risk than other treatments. This is the safest process for reducing fat, but people must understand the side effects of it.

CoolSculpting and cryolipolysis are the process in which therapists use freezing temperatures to breakdown the fat cells and cold does not damage other cells and there are no marks or damage to the skin. Another name for these treatments is fat freezing treatments.

In this process, therapists vaccum the skin portion into an applicator which further freezes the skin that will break the fat cell present in that area. Usually, this process numbs the area, but some people still may feel the cooling sensation in the nearby areas.

Most of the CoolSculpting process doesn’t take more than an hour and there is no need for any kind of recovery time as their no damage to any part of the tissue of the body. But some people may find the treated area to be sore or some may also get muscle injury while having intense workout sessions.

Even after following the procedure, it might take around 4-6 months for the fat cells to be removed from the body and an average of 20% of the fat can be removed from the treated part of the body.

Does CoolSculpting work?

You might not be aware of but to be true CoolSculpting is very safe and possesses a very high success rate. This process is very effective in removing fat from the body. It has very fewer side effects when compared with other treatments for example liposuction.

This is process removes fat from the specific part of the body but people should not treat it as a miracle. They shouldn’t feel that this process removes complete fat from the body. It might be possible that this process doesn’t show any effect on a specific person or some people might also experience worse side effects when compared with others.

What do researchers say?

Researchers say that this is the safest and most effective process to remove fat from a specific part of the body. Researchers said that, when they measured the fat reduction using a caliper which is a kind of ruler scale, people managed to lose an average of 14.67 to 28.5% of fat from the treated areas using cryolipolysis. When the study is measured using ultrasound, it is found that people lost around 10.3 to 25.5% of fat.

In a separate study, it is reported that people after taking this treatment successfully lost 19.55% of fat. Although the author emphasizes on the longterm data collection of CoolSculpting. Most of the researches that are carried out are based on short term results and thus there needs to be a good comparison of CoolSculpting with other forms of cosmetics procedures which further explains the effects on lifestyle.
