Post-CoolSculpting® Concerns Solved Part 1

Whether you are looking into fat reduction for the first time, or you’ve done it before and you want to try CoolSculpting®, we can help you. If you have never heard of CoolSculping before, it is a revolutionary fat reduction process in which cold temperatures are used to freeze and kill fat cells, which are then removed by the body naturally. It is effective, non-invasive, and fast.

In a previous blog, we explored the possibilities of bumps, dimples, and skin laxness after CoolSculpting. Today, we are going to confront a few more common concerns about this amazing process.

Will I see an increase in my cholesterol?

This is a common concern, and many studies have been done on it. The blood samples taken after CoolSculpting have not shown any increase in blood lipid or cholesterol levels. CoolSculpting utilizes the lymphatic system to eliminate fat, and the process is so gradual and slow, it doesn’t affect liver function or blood chemistry.

Will I experience nerve damage from the treatment?

When CoolSculpting was developed, preserving nerves was one of the highest priorities. As a result, many studies were done, and it has been proven that CoolSculping does not cause long-term nerve damage. It can be a little unnerving at first, because you can experience numbness up to six weeks after a CoolSculpting treatment. The thing is, numbness is a normal side effect. Sensation always comes back, because your nerves haven’t been damaged in the long term.
