No Long-Term Side Effects From CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis to destroy fat cells. The dead cells do not affect the body or raise the levels of cholesterol in the blood. The destroyed cells are processed by the lymph system and excreted in the urine over time. The results are, indeed, quite impressive, and the side effects are minimal. Consulting a board-certified dermatologist will alleviate your worries and help you decide if CoolSculpting is right for you.
No Long Term Side Effects For CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a very effective way of permanently eliminating fat cells from your body. After being frozen, the fat cells undergo apoptosis, a slow shrinkage and dying of the cells over a two week period. The fat cell, composed of triglycerides and enzymes, is degraded by the body’s immune system and its components are processed through the lymph system and excreted through urine. There is no change in cholesterol levels during this process. Dead fat cells will not return, which means that barring a further weight gain, your results are permanent.
CoolSculpting is a safe, noninvasive means of ridding yourself of excess, stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Side effects are minimal and transient and may include slight pain, coolness, redness, bruising and swelling. These generally resolve in days. There are no known long-term side effects. Please consult with a board-certified dermatologist to determine if you are a candidate for CoolSculpting.
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what. It is a very safe procedure. immediate adverse reactions are rare but could include bruising and swelling. Every treatment, 20 to 25% subcutaneous fat is reduced in the area the treatment was performed on.
