Though first FDA cleared in 2010, some still ask, “Is CoolSculpting safe?” The simple answer is, “Yes it is,” but there’s a lot of scientific research to back up that answer and explain exactly what makes CoolSculpting treatment safe. In a Harvard study, research revealed that when using precise cold temperatures in a controlled setting, freezing fat would induce cell death, and then the body would naturally clear the dead fat cells.
CoolSculpting is used to freeze fat in eight different treatment areas. In 2012, the treatment was cleared for treating the abdomen. Then in 2014, CoolSculpting was cleared by the FDA to treat thighs; allowing CoolSculpting practitioners to address the inner and outer thighs.
In 2015—CoolSculpting welcomed FDA-clearance for fat underneath the chin also known as submental fat or the double-chin. And, in 2016, CoolSculpting received some love for small areas of fat, getting clearance for treatment of back and bra fat, and fat underneath the buttocks. CoolSculpting can now also treat the fat on the upper arms!
What does Non-Invasive mean?
Non-invasive means that it is the opposite of invasive surgical procedures like breast reductions and liposuction. It also means that there are no incisions, no surgery and no needles, and in regards to CoolSculpting, it means that there is minimal to zero downtime.
How the CoolSculpting treatment works:
- Fat gets cooled to just above freezing.
- Within the fat cells, crystals form, and then the fat cells die.
- When fat cells die they collapse, and a natural inflammatory process eliminates them from the body through the lymphatic system.
- The natural inflammatory process can take up to four months after treatment to remove dead fat cells; resulting in fat layer reduction.
