To define it in the simplest way, contouring the body is a process for changing the body shape by eliminating excess fat cells. This can be achieved in many different ways.
Certain procedures are invasive, i.e. fat removal needs surgery. Liposuction is the most common invasive procedure. Other operations are non-invasive, which means that surgery is not necessary. A non-invasive procedure can be applied like Coolsculpting.
We know, however, that extreme cold or hot temperatures can harm the body. So the question arises, is CoolSculpting safe? Does anyone undergoing the procedure experience any side effects that may cause lasting harm? The aim of this post is to alleviate some of the fears.
Common Questions with Helpful Answers
Does it disturb the skin due to intense cold and causes freezing?When the skin is exposed to extreme cold, freeze burning occurs. The possibility of a freeze-burn is insignificant if the CoolSculpting method is carried out by a qualified and certified professional. For this reason, a number of functionality were built into the procedure.
- Before the procedure begins, a particular patented gel pad on the skin is placed by the expert. This gel pad is designed to protect the skin and the tissue surrounding it. At no point in time will the applicator come into direct contact with the skin.
- The applicators that use CoolSculpting are vacuum-controlled and apply targeted and controlled cooling in fatty cells for pinchable tissue around and near the area of treatment.
- During the procedure, Freeze Detect and CoolConnect technology continuously monitor the skin temperature. If the sensors detect a decline in optimal skin temperature at any point during the procedure, the CoolSculpting machine stops the procedure at once and right away.
How long and what are the side effects?In a few days or weeks, most of the side effects will be resolved. Some redness and firmness may include mild bruising on the edges of the therapy area, a prickling sensation, clamping, or numbness.
Is the Procedure Painful?The tug or pulling effect may be present when the applicator sucks in the tissue. When the applicator is used. Once the procedure begins, the temperature could drop and there is a tingling sensation. This sensation quickly decreases as the treatment area gets dead or numb. Then, most people spend time reading a book, having to watch TV or mobile phones or like a spa day.
