Here are the answers to three frequently asked questions about CoolSculpting:

  1. What Is Cryolipolysis?

Cryolipolysis is the process of using cold temperatures to kill fat cells in targeted areas of the body. It is on the basis of this scientific process that CoolSculpting works. Cryolipolysis only affects subcutaneous fatty tissue; it does not harm skin or muscle tissue.

According to CoolSculpting reviews on Real Self, after a single CoolSculpting session, 20 percent to 25 percent of the fat cells in the targeted area will die. Over the next two to six months, those cells will be naturally expelled from your body.

  1. Is There a Risk of Adverse Side Effects?

As previously mentioned, CoolSculpting does not require incisions, and the process does not affect skin or muscle tissue. The procedure received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2010 for safety and effectiveness, and there has not been a single report of a serious, adverse side effect caused by CoolSculpting. You may experience some mild bruising and redness immediately after treatment, but these will dissipate over the following hours and days.

  1. Who Makes a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting has become a popular fat-reduction procedure for both men and women. Most patients who are of good overall health may benefit from the procedure.

It is important that you have a clear understanding of what CoolSculpting can and cannot accomplish. It typically removes 20 percent to 25 percent of fat in the targeted area, and if you would like to remove more fat, you might benefit from subsequent treatments. CoolSculpting is not a solution for obesity, and if you would like to remove a substantial amount of fat, liposuction may be a better option.

During your initial consultation, your practitioner will ask you a series of questions to determine if you are a good candidate. You should not undergo CoolSculpting if you suffer from paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria or cryoglobulinemia.
