Does CoolSculpting Hurt?

Approaching fat reduction options is daunting and sometimes confusing. Worst of all, the possibility of experiencing pain after choosing a treatment can deter further exploration into fat reduction treatments. Does CoolSculpting hurt is one of the first questions asked about the #1 non-invasive treatment in the world. Prospective patients can easily find information about how fat freezing works. Read on to find not only how it works, but how much does CoolSculpting hurt.

What is CoolSculpting? | What is Treatment Like

The science behind Cryolipolysis is the star of the show. This makes CoolSculpting the most sought-after and effective fat reduction treatment today. Thermal cooling technology exposes fat under the skin to freezing temperatures. The fat cells then crystalize and rupture. Weeks after treatment, the lymphatic system metabolizes those dead cells, wasting them off the body without any surgery or pain. CoolSculpting is so easy because half of the process is a simple biological tendency. CoolSculpting is safe.

In treatment, applicators adhere to the body and lightly draw fat cells to the surface using suction. This occurs in the first few minutes of a session and can sometimes be uncomfortable at first. This tugging subsides to the calibrated cooling of the technology, which can make that part of the body feel very cold. Patients report mild discomfort, quickly settling into relaxation for the rest of the session. CoolSculpting is not only safe, but it is also comfortable.

Does CoolSculpting Hurt? | Risks and Side Effects

CoolSculpting patients have reported some side effects: redness, tenderness, and numbing. These symptoms are consistent with natural immune responses. Luckily, they clear up within a few days. There are no adverse long-term side effects to fat freezing treatments. Since it was FDA cleared over a decade ago, CoolSculpting research has yielded more diverse technology and better results year after year.

Best of all, fat freezing leaves surrounding tissue undamaged. In fact, CoolSculpting has been proven to improve skin laxity because of how exceptional it is at targeting only fat cells. It effectively kills fat cells and allows the body to waste them naturally. It never requires surgery or a lengthy recovery period. CoolSculpting does not hurt. It helps.
