CoolSculpting body contouring treatment is known for its high safety profile, but risks are possible with any cosmetic treatment. Although the occurrence of side-effects with CoolSculpting is very low, patients should be aware of what these are, so that they can take the necessary safety precautions. But what are the side-effects of CoolSculpting.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that uses cold temperatures to eliminate areas of unwanted fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise.
Is CoolSculpting safe?
CoolSculpting is a safe, FDA-cleared procedure that has an excellent safety profile. The procedure is generally well tolerated, and in clinical studies carried out, participants did not report any significant side-effects or adverse events after treatment.
What are the side-effects of CoolSculpting?
There are minor side-effects that can occur during and after the CoolSculpting procedure.
During CoolSculpting the applicator freezes the targeted area and the extreme cold may be uncomfortable for some patients, until the area becomes numb. There may also be some tingling, stinging, or aching at the treatment site. However, these side-effects usually wear off within a few hours.
After CoolSculpting treatment, patients may experience symptoms such as redness, bruising, swelling, and tenderness, at the treatment site. These symptoms are usually mild, and typically resolve within 1-2 weeks.
