What are the Risks Associated with Non-Surgical Body Sculpting?
Here at Sensational Skin, we always get questions about the risks that might be associated with CoolSculpting, which is a procedure for non-surgical body sculpting. Many of our patients are skeptical because they’ve heard about the risks associated with other weight loss procedures.
Weight loss surgeries carry many risks, including:
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Dilation of the esophagus
- “Dump” syndrome
However, non-surgical body sculpting using the CoolSculpting technique carries no risks at all. Some patients have reported very minor bruising after the procedure is over, but they are able to return to their regular activities immediately.
How can CoolSculpting be Risk-Free?
It might sound too good to be true, but CoolSculpting really is risk-free. That’s because it’s a non-invasive procedure. We use one of our applicators to apply intense cold to the area you want to have treated. Your healthy tissue doesn’t react to the cold, but fat cells die off and then they are eliminated from the body naturally.
Can it Work for You?
CoolSculpting is a great option for anyone who wants to sculpt their body. Whether you just want to get rid of unwanted love handles, or you need some help shedding an extra ten pounds in your thighs, this is a great way to do it.
