CoolSculpting Side Effects

After treatment, the body experiences an immune response that collects the dead fat cells and processes them out of the body. As a result, patients can experience one or more of the following symptoms associated with an immune response:

  • swelling
  • redness (erythema)
  • tenderness
  • bruising

The symptoms remain isolated to the treatment area. Most patients only experience mild symptoms that resolve in one to two weeks on their own.

CoolSculpting Risks

While CoolSculpting risks are low, there are rare cases of adverse reactions. These occurrences are very low and tend to only occur in rare events. The best way to reduce any risks is to choose a reputable CoolSculpting provider in your area.

Fat freezing is a technique-sensitive procedure. Your experience and results rely heavily on the expertise and knowledge of the person providing your treatment. Most adverse reactions occur from technician error or due to the use of a counterfeit CoolSculpting machine.

When selecting the right provider, it is vital to prioritize experience and reputation over price. Potential patients need to be sure the person conducting the treatment is a certified CoolSculpting provider. With the fat-freezing treatment growing in popularity, many people use counterfeit machines to scam and potentially harm patients.

Take note, CoolSculpting is the only fat reduction treatment scientifically verified, and FDA cleared for reduction of fat using Cryolipolysis.
