Demystifying 3 Myths about CoolSculpting®

CoolSculpting® is becoming one of the most popular body sculpting treatments for patients hoping to slim down without having surgery. However, there are many misconceptions about the ability of cryolipolysis to effectively remove fat despite being completely non-invasive. Let’s take a look at three common myths surrounding this treatment.

Myth: It’s Not Effective

While not every patient is a good candidate for CoolSculpting®, the right patient is likely to see a significant improvement in the treatment area. The best CoolSculpting® candidate wants to slim down a specific problem area, such as love handles or the inner thighs, but doesn’t expect dramatic weight loss.

Cryolipolysis works by targeting and freezing fat cells underneath the skin. The crystallized cells are then naturally eliminated from the body, leaving behind a slimmer silhouette. With results peaking after a few months, most patients report a 20-25 percent reduction in fat in the treatment area after just one session.

Myth: It Isn’t FDA-Approved

In 2012, CoolSculpting® received clearance from the FDA for abdominal fat reduction. Having FDA-approval lends credibility to the procedure which was already gaining popularity among satisfied patients and their doctors. Now, in addition to trusting the testimonials and before-and-after photos of past patients, those considering CoolSculpting® have the added assurance of knowing that the safety and effectiveness of the procedure have been formally and thoroughly vetted by the FDA.

Myth: You Can’t Gain Weight after Treatment

While CoolSculpting® can undoubtedly remove fat cells from the treatment area, it’s up to you to keep your new slimmer figure. It is absolutely possible to gain weight after treatment, and putting on extra pounds can undo the results of your body sculpting procedure. After treatment, it’s important to continue your active and healthy lifestyle in order to maintain your results.
