There are many myths about Cryolipolysis that are floating around, We want to let you know the 8 common myths about Cryolipolysis, and what the actual truth is behind it.

1. You can shed weight by the pounds

One of the biggest myths about Cryolipolysis is that it can help you lose weight dramatically. In reality, Cryolipolysis is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure and should not be used as a weight loss treatment. It’s used to treat fat resistant to diet and exercise.
one session can typically reduce about 20-25% of the fat in one area, it usually only comes out to about 1-2 pounds.

2. It’s a weight loss alternative

What some people might not know is there is a difference between weight loss and fat reduction. Weight loss causes your fat cells to shrink in size because of a balance between the calories you intake and the amount you burn with activity. The volume shrinks, but the number of cells stays the same. Weight loss can also be due to a loss in muscle and fluid loss.
Fat reduction happens when you use methods like Cryolipolysis to eliminate the number of fat cells in an area. This leads to the fewer number of cells that are gone for good.

3. It can tighten your skin and improve sagging

Cryolipolysis is mainly used for fat reduction, targeting fat cells underneath the skin, so it doesn’t affect the top layer of your skin. This means that it isn’t a viable solution for improving your skin laxity.
If you have good elasticity, then you don’t have to worry about skin tightening because your skin will tighten on its own to the new shape of your body

4. It’s only for the stomach

While the first Cryolipolysis device approved by the FDA was used to treat the stomach area, Cryolipolysis is now used to treat a variety of different areas like:
  • Chin
  • Chest
  • Arms
  • Flanks
  • Stomach
  • Outer thighs
  • Inner thighs
  • Knees
  • Upper back
  • Lower back

5. You’ll see instant results

Cryolipolysis is a safe and effective procedure, but the results are not immediate. You will notice improvements in as little as 3 weeks, with the most dramatic results at 2 months from your treatment. You can even continue seeing results 6 months out.

6. Cryolipolysis is for everyone

The list of who can get CoolSculpting is definitely a lot longer than those who can’t, but there are indeed people who cannot get Cryolipolysis. For example, it cannot be used as a treatment for overweight or obese individuals.

7. It’s painful

Cryolipolysis is a non-invasive procedure, which means it’s relatively painless. You may feel an intense cold, numbness, or slight discomfort for the first minutes.
You may experience some redness, swelling, bruising, and firmness, but it will subside. There is also no downtime, which means you can return to your normal activities.

8. You won’t gain weight after your treatment

Your Cryolipolysis results and their longevity will rely on you and how you treat your body after your Cryolipolysis procedure.
There is no alternative to a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and proper dieting. As mentioned before, Cryolipolysis is not a solution for weight loss, and it can’t cure that. Gaining weight is a natural part of the growth process in life, and we gain and lose weight constantly. To maintain the figure you achieved from your Cryolipolysis treatment, you have to maintain your diet and exercise just as you normally would after losing weight.
