CoolSculpting: Q&AAsk a Question

Great question. Raynaud's is basically a cold-induced spasm of the blood vessels. It would be a bad idea for you to have CoolSculpting, which works by freezing, if you have this condition. You should choose a different method for your fat removal - like Liposonix, one of the radio-frequency devices or perhaps surgery.
That's a really good question. I would advise you not get a CoolSculpting procedure performed if you have a history of Raynaud's phenomenon or disease as the cold temperature may precipitate an epidose of Raynaud's. I would suggest you schedule an appointment with a qualified physician trained in cosmetic procedures to see if you would be a candidate for another, non-invasive fat-reducing procedure that does not involve cold temperatures such as Liposonix or Zerona. Good Luck!
Raynauds is a relative contraindication for Coolsculpting. In our practice we do not treat patients with Coolsculpting if they have Raynauds.
