Coolsculpting reviews: Expectations vs. Reality

Coolsculpting Reviews Have Been Flooding in from Everywhere!

If you are expecting to find a fat freezing or fat reducing procedure with perfect reviews, you will be searching forever.  Coolsculpting, however, has gotten really positive feedback.  This non-invasive fat freezing treatment has taken the country by storm, but not without some negative reviews.  Most focus on the pain during treatments, but others brush it off due to the amazing results.

First Off, What is Coolsculpting?

Coolsculpting is the latest innovation in freezing fat to get rid of unwanted fat cells.  It is a completely non-invasive procedure, meaning there is no surgery necessary.  Zeltiq Coolscupting has been around since 2012, but over the past few years has added more technology to the Coolsculpting procedure such as freezing fat around the stomach and thigh areas.

Obviously, one of the most important proofs of any fat reducing procedures, such as Coolsculpting, are the reviews and feedback from real-life patients.

Are There Any Coolsculpting Side Effects?

According to the Zeltiq Aesthetics Wikipedia page,  as of 2013, clinical trials have found that Coolsculpting is moderately effective and has mostly mild and temporary side-effects.

This was taken directly from Zeltiq Coolscupting’s Website:

During the procedure you may experience deep pulling, tugging, pinching, numbness or discomfort. Following the procedure, typical side effects include temporary numbness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, tingling, stinging and pain.  Rare side effects may also occur.  The CoolSculpting procedure is not for everyone.  You should not have the CoolSculpting procedure if you suffer from cryoglobulinemia or paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria.  The CoolSculpting procedure is not a treatment for obesity.  As with any medical procedure, ask your physician if the CoolSculpting procedure is right for you.

From reading through many Coolsculpting reviews, we found that the treatments may be painful for some.  This is a difficult measure as everyone’s pain tolerance is different.  It seems the pain comes from the abnormal sensations felt during the procedure such as the tugging and pinching.  Many of the reviews state that by the second treatment, if they made it that far, the pain was far less due to the fact that they knew what to expect.

After treatment, Coolsculpting side effects have been very rare aside from the slight bruising.  Many don’t see the positive effects of Coolsculpting until 3-4 weeks after the treatment.
