Myth: CoolSculpting Is Only For Women

Not at all. A CoolSculpting practice near you might advertise it as if it is a procedure only available for beauty-conscious women. However, that is not true. This procedure can be undertaken by men as well. It is safe and is more often a customized gender neutral plan for every body type to address different problem areas.

However, the best way to find out if you are eligible for CoolSculpting is to go through a consultation before you go for it.

Myth: CoolSculpting Is Painful

This is a common misleading notion around this procedure. While the process accompanies some tingling sensation, tenderness, or slight discomfort to some, it is not unbearably painful. The reason why this procedure has gained so much traction is attributed to the fact that it is a pain-free solution to fat reduction. It is non-invasive which means no surgical treatment is involved. After the procedure, only some patients experience soreness, itching or bruising, but overall this discomfort is temporary.

Myth: CoolSculpting Only Reduces Your Stomach Fat

     Outer and inner thighs
     Lower abdomen
     Armpit puffs
     Banana rolls

Myth: CoolSculpting Treatments Take Longer Recovery

CoolSculpting is often considered to be another one that is accompanied by downtime and post recovery. However, it is probably the only treatment that you can walk out of on your own.
