Debunking Common CoolSculpting® Myths

With over 11 million treatments performed on patients around the world, CoolSculpting® is considered the top fat freezing treatment globally. It uses a patented cooling technology that effectively destroys fat cells, which is why it’s becoming the top non-invasive treatment choice for patients who want to get rid of stubborn fats.

As CoolSculpting® treatment grows in popularity, there are misconceptions spreading around it. In this article, Laser Clinics New Zealand debunks common misconceptions about the procedure and discusses its benefits. 

Myth 1: CoolSculpting® is only a treatment for the stomach.

Fact: Although the midsection is an area of the body for the CoolSculpting® procedure among patients, this non-surgical procedure uses targeted cooling to reduce fats in various body parts. At Laser Clinics New Zealand, we can create a tailored CoolSculpting® treatment for you, targeting the chin, abdomen, inner and outer thighs, flanks, arms and bra fat. 

Myth 2: CoolSculpting® is a weight loss treatment. 

Fact: CoolSculpting® is a fat-reduction procedure specifically designed for patients with unwanted fat in targeted areas of the body. It is not a weight loss solution for obesity. Instead, it’s a non-surgical alternative to liposuction, getting rid of noticeable bulges in the body to help patients achieve their body goals without using needles or breaking skin.

Myth 3: CoolSculpting® is painful. 

Fact: While you may experience some discomfort during the cooling process of the CoolSculpting® procedure, most patients do not describe it as a painful treatment. At Laser Clinics New Zealand, only our specially trained CoolSculpting® therapists will perform this procedure. The device we use contains FreezeDetect®, a safety measure that detects if the skin is getting too cold and will shut down the system automatically. 

Myth 4: CoolSculpting® requires a longer downtime period for recovery.

Fact: Unlike fat reduction surgical procedures, CoolSculpting® require little to no downtime for recovery. This non-invasive procedure allows you to get back to your regular routines and activities immediately after the treatment. 

Myth 5: CoolSculpting® results are temporary.

Fact: The treated stubborn fat cells are eliminated permanently in the body via the lymphatic system. However, patients must remember that results are only permanent for the treated fat cells. That’s why we recommend having a healthy lifestyle to maintain the results. 

Myth 6: CoolSculpting® is only for women.

Fact: Both men and women can be good candidates for CoolSculpting®. This procedure has been proven effective for patients, regardless of gender,  who want to get rid of unwanted and excessive fats.
