Eliminating exercise resistant fat deposits without surgery may seem like it is something that’s too good to be true, but the reality is that CoolSculpting can help tone and contour the body, without the need to have surgery. At New Image Body Sculpting, we’ve found that our clients have heard quite a number of myths surrounding this procedure. Here is some information to help debunk those myths so you can make a decision about CoolSculpting with the right information.
Myth 1 – CoolSculpting Hurts
A minimal amount of discomfort can occur with CoolSculpting during the procedure, but most patients feel no discomfort. Having well-trained doctors, like the team at New Image Body Sculpting, helps limit this risk.
Myth 2 – Coolsculpting Has Replaced More Invasive Procedures
CoolSculpting is an alternative to liposuction for some patients, but it does not address left over skin or large fat deposits. It’s specifically effective for those exercise resistant fat deposits that just don’t budge with diet and exercise alone. Some patients will need liposuction or tummy tuck procedures to get the results they want, but for those who need sculpting and toning, and are not very overweight, it is a great alternative.
Myth 3 – CoolSculpting Provides Instant Results
CoolSculpting does not remove fat from the body, but rather freezes the fat cells. After the fat cells break down, the body reabsorbs them. For this reason, final results cannot be seen until a few weeks after the Coolsculpting procedure, but most patients will see about 25% reduction in fat deposits after their healing has finished.
Myth 4 – CoolSculpting Only Provides Temporary Results
The Coolsculpting procedure eliminates the targeted fat cells. However, in order to maintain results, the patient must continue following healthy eating and exercise regimens. Those who claim the procedure didn’t work often failed to maintain their healthy living habits after the procedure. An unhealthy lifestyle after the procedure will cause the fat deposits to build back up.
Myth 5 – CoolSculpting Carries Significant Risk
Since getting approval from the FDA, over 2 million CoolSculpting procedures have been performed. As a non-surgical option, CoolSculpting carries minimal risk, does not lead to infection or blood loss, and provides effective fat reduction for patients who are good candidates for the procedure.
If you are considering CoolSculpting, the first step is to make sure you are good candidate for this fat reduction technique.
