CoolSculpting has become a popular treatment in recent years, with many clients successfully reducing stubborn fat without the need for any surgery or unrealistic diets and workout plans. Although there are many myths that are around here is where we set that all clear with some of the common myths:
Coolsculpting is a weight loss treatment.
A common misconception is that there is no difference between fat reduction and weight loss. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment that can give up to a 30% reduction in fat on the treated area. Weight loss is where your fat cells shrink in size due to the balance of calories and amount of physical activity to burn these fat cells. During weight loss, the volume of cells will shrink but the number of fat cells will remain the same.
CoolSculpting tightens the skin.
The CoolSculpting treatment is solely a fat reduction treatment, it works by targeting the fat cells under the skin to freeze and crystalise them, and over the space of 12 weeks, these fat cells begin to break down and leave the body. If you’re looking to treat skin laxity as well as fat reduction, you can opt for other treatments such as EmSculpt, Morpheus8, or HIFU.
CoolSculpting is only suitable for the abdomen.
CoolSculpting was FDA cleared on the stomach area from the beginning since then, CoolSculpting is now available to treat a range of areas on the body:
CoolSculpting will give instant results.
Fat reduction with Cryolypolisis is a safe and effective procedure that has been carried out for many years with a number of success stories, and you can find many testimonials and great before and afters. However, the results are not instant, you can expect to notice improvements in as little as four weeks, but in most cases, clients will see optimal results at 12 weeks post-treatment. After your treatment, you would go in for two reviews to assess the results and discuss any further treatments for your body goals. Whilst CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment, it is important to stay active and have a healthy diet throughout the process.
CoolSculpting is painful.
This is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment which means there is minimal pain compared to other fat reduction methods. During the treatment, you may feel an instant coldness, numbness which may cause a little bit of discomfort and get used to it for the first few minutes. Once the treatment continues to do the work, you can watch some tv, read, sleep or catch up with emails. Once the treatment is finished, a small massage is performed, which also may feel uncomfortable as this encourages the cells to begin breaking down. There is no downtime post-treatment, which means you can return to work and normal activities without staying in the clinic.
You won’t gain weight after CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution, and it cannot prevent the body from gaining new fat cells as it is a natural part of the growth process. This is why it is important to carry on maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle after your treatment as you would with weight loss.
