CoolSculpting is a highly respected fat reduction treatment that uses freezing technology to encourage controlled cell death for body contouring. It has become increasingly popular over the last few years as a non-surgical alternative to traditional liposuction.
Busting myths: the truth about CoolSculpting
“CoolSculpting tightens skin”
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, a freezing process that is aimed at breaking down fat cells, it won’t tighten skin. For a skin tightening treatment, we recommend booking a consultation with one of our aesthetic technicians, who can recommend an effective solution and devise a bespoke treatment plan that may include CoolSculpting for stubborn pockets of fat.
“I don’t have time to recover from coolsculpting”
Unlike traditional surgical fat reduction methods like liposuction, CoolSculpting has little to no downtime, with some patients reporting that they returned to their usual daily activities straight away. Following aftercare is vital though, and you should adhere to the guidelines set out by your practitioner.
“This is a weight loss treatment”
We don’t condone using CoolSculpting to lose weight, and advise that it be used in cases where fat has not been reduced by a regular exercise regime and healthy diet. Cryolipolysis should be used in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle, rather than instead of it.
“Coolsculpting is only for women”
While women make up the majority of patients for CoolSculpting, and indeed cosmetic treatments as a whole, men are increasingly using non-surgical fat reduction methods, and cryolipolysis is not restricted to a single gender.
“Results are permanent”
Results from this treatment are long-lasting, provided aftercare instructions are followed, and beyond that, you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you regularly consume more calories than you burn, you will put on weight, and this stays true even following fat reduction treatments.
