CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that is becoming more and more popular because it is a safe and effective way of removing stubborn fat cells. This treatment allows you to target different parts of the body and if it is something you are considering, it is natural to wonder if this treatment is, in fact, completely safe.

Like most treatments, CoolSculpting does have a few side effects but these are normal and you will not be in any danger as a result. An applicator device will be used during the procedure which serves as a suction cup to pull the skin and fat in the areas that are being treated. The applicator will freeze these areas and target the fat cells underneath the skin, after which they will die and will naturally be processed and eliminated from your body. The skin and tissue around the targeted areas will see some side effects as redness, tenderness, numbing, tingling and bruising are all very common.

The risks that are associated with CoolSculpting are rare and if you were to experience any of them, they would be short-lived. Your physician will discuss the risks and any potential complications that you may experience, and together, you will be able to decide whether or not you would be a suitable candidate for this procedure. Certain factors, like any existing health problems, will be carefully considered as these may put you more at risk.

If you were to experience a lot of pain, your doctor could prescribe short-term painkillers to eliminate any discomfort. Compression garments are recommended to relieve discomfort and bruising.

While there is no guarantee that the procedure is completely risk-free, CoolSculpting remains one of the safest and most effective procedures when it comes to fat removal. The effects will never be life-threatening.
