1. Fat cells self-destruct when the skin gets cold enough. The FDA-cleared procedure suctions in the skin surrounding the area of fat you want to freeze, then uses controlled cooling (aka cryolipolysis) to drop the temperature of the skin down to where the fat cells die. The body then eliminates the cells in the following weeks.
2. There is a tendency for uneven removal. It’s not skill-dependent, since a vacuum-like head suctions the skin in to freeze it, so there is a risk of uneven removal, says Paul Jarrod Frank, MD, a cosmetic dermatologist in New York City.
3. It can be pricey. Depending on where you live and the area you’re looking to get treated, a CoolSculpting session can run you $500 and up.
4. One treatment has been said to be enough, but that isn’t always the case. So in the end, it might not be the most cost-effective option to get the results you’re looking for. Be sure to talk to your doctor before going in for the treatment to see if you’re the perfect candidate for this procedure.
