DIY CoolSculpting – A Dangerous New Trend

CoolSculpting is a revolutionary procedure that allows targeted, permanent fat loss through a process called cryolipolysis. It’s one of the most popular treatments at Spectrum Dermatology. Spectrum offers a wide variety of tools for numerous body areas, and all CoolSculpting technicians are highly skilled. The idea behind CoolSculpting was accidentally discovered when researchers found that children who regularly sucked on popsicles permanently lost fat in their cheeks—and this backstory has led to a dangerous new trend.

CoolSculpting is almost always considered an elective, cosmetic procedure. It is substantially more affordable than liposuction, which is a riskier and much more expensive fat loss procedure. Still, some people are trying DIY at-home “CoolSculpting” procedures as a means of saving money and time. It’s no surprise that this often ends badly.

At best, trying to “freeze away” fat at home will be ineffective. The odds of getting the temperature correct and for the right amount of time is slim to none. Most of these attempts include ice cubes or freezer packs that might freeze the skin without banishing any fat cells. There’s a high risk of frostbite and permanent tissue damage with DIY attempts at fat-freezing.

CoolSculpting may have been discovered by accidental freezing, but it’s been perfected over many years to give clients the best and safest results. Full results won’t be seen until six months after the last treatment, although some results will be visible in just a few weeks. Now is the perfect time to schedule your CoolSculpting consultation so you’ll have the swimsuit body you desire in time for summer.

At-home approaches to procedures like fat-freezing should never be attempted. However, it’s just as important to research the knowledge of the CoolSculpting clinic you’re considering.
