Is Coolsculpting for You? Benefits, Safety, and Results

coolsculpting st petersburg floridaIf you have some stubborn fat pockets, Coolsculpting probably sounds like a great idea, but it may not be for everyone. Here’s what you need to know about the benefits, safety, and results that you can expect from the procedure.


There are a lot of benefits to using Coolsculpting to get rid of stubborn fat cells. First and foremost, it is completely noninvasive, which means fewer risks and no recovery or downtime. Results look natural because they occur over the course of several weeks rather than all at once. 


The results you will get from Coolsculpting depend on the size of the treatment area, the amount of fat you are trying to get rid of, and how many cycles you receive. Most people will need two cycles to see results. But if you need only moderate body contouring, one cycle may be sufficient. You’ll start seeing your results about three weeks in, with final results within two months.

But is it safe?

Coolsculpting is completely safe for most people. If you are at a healthy weight and have unsuccessfully tried diet and exercise to rid yourself of the fat, Coolsculpting should be safe for you. However, some people shouldn’t have this treatment, including people who:

  • Are pregnant
  • Have certain autoimmune conditions
  • Have Raynaud’s disease
  • Have an Inflammatory condition
  • Have a nerve condition, such as neuropathy
  • Have had a recent injury that broke the skin
  • Are taking blood thinning medications
  • Have implanted medical devices
  • Have a severe anxiety disorder
