4 CoolSculpting Myths


CoolSculpting is still a new procedure, but that does not mean there has not been enough time for myths to pop up. If you have heard any of the CoolSculpting myths below, don’t believe them!

#1 I Can Lose a Lot of Weight With Cool Sculpting

CoolSculpting is not for dramatic weight loss. It is a fat reduction procedure, not a weight loss procedure. The procedure reduces stubborn area fats that do not respond to diet and exercise. A single CoolSculpting session can reduce fat in the treated area by 30%. This will result in a one or two pound weight loss.

#2 It Will Tighten My Skin

CoolSculpting mainly is for fat reduction under the skin. It has no effect on the top layer of skin. So, it is not a treatment for lax skin. It will not improve sagging skin, either.

The good news is this: If you have good, elastic skin, it will contract to match your new shape as the body slowly flushes out the fat after your CoolSculpting treatment.

#3 CoolSculpting Is Only for the Abdomen

Wrong! This procedure works well on many areas. CoolSculpting actually came about due to research by two scientists who noted that children who eat a lot of popsicles tend to get dimples. So, the procedure can be used to reduce fat in many spots:

  • Love handles
  • Muffin tops
  • Arms
  • Thighs, and more

#4 I Will See Immediate Results

No, you won’t. This is a safe and effective treatment, but the results won’t be seen for 2-3 weeks. That is how long it takes for the body to flush out the dead fat cells.
