Cancer and Coolsculpting
CoolSculpting for fat loss lack of reports of cancer
I am not aware of any reports of cancer following CoolSculpting that is believed to be a result of this freezing fat therapy.
No Link Between Cancer and CoolSculpting
There is no link between cancer and CoolSculpting. This procedure kills the fat cells underneath the skin, literally freezing them to the point of elimination. Only fat cells are frozen. Your healthy skin cells will remain unharmed. Once crystallized, the fat cells die and are naturally eliminated from your body. CoolSculpting is a very safe and tested procedure.

Linking Coolsculpting to Possible Cancer?
Thank you for your question.
From the studies performed regarding the Coolsculpting treatment, there have been nothing at this point that would connect it to cancer.

Collsculpting and cancer risk
There are no studies to show correlation between CoolSculpting and cancer risk. Apoptosis or programmed cell death is the process in which CoolSculpting initiates bodies removal of fat cells. Theoretically, even if cancer cells were to be developed, it would need to happen as part of new cell generation which is not what happens in this treatment. Nothing to worry about.
