We all have something about ourselves we would like to improve – a freckle here, a bulge over there. And more Americans than ever before are choosing to be proactive about fulfilling their cosmetic desires.
Research from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery shows a recent spike in the number of people undergoing cosmetic procedures. Americans spent a record $13.5 billion on elective treatments in 2015 – an increase of more than $1.5 billion from 2014.
Although surgical procedures rose by 7 percent, nonsurgical treatments jumped three times that; in fact, nine of the 10 most popular procedures were nonsurgical.
The reason? Nonsurgical procedures such as CoolSculpting are less expensive than more invasive alternatives. They also offer a shorter recovery time and a lower risk of complications.

Let’s take a look at three questions to ask before your CoolSculpting appointment:
- What Is CoolSculpting?
If you think CoolSculpting is a funny name, wait until you hear its technical term: Cryolipolysis was developed by two scientists from Harvard University who noticed that children often developed dimples after eating popsicles.
This discovery inspired them to test and prove that fatty tissue is susceptible to cold – and that cooling fat cells is a safe way to contour the body. Now, the CoolSculpting procedure has evolved to a point where most people can use cryolipolysis to target stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
- Is CoolSculpting Effective?
Physicians at Massachusetts General Hospital published a study in Lasers in Surgery and Medicine that demonstrated the effectiveness of CoolSculpting in reducing the appearance of fatty tissue. Three of their primary findings were:
● Exposing targeted areas to cold can cause natural, controlled fat cell death; ● Inflammatory cells continue to eliminate fat cells for months after the cryolipolysis procedure; ● And lipids from those fat cells are naturally removed from the body.
- Is CoolSculpting Safe?
A 2009 study in the journal Aesthetic Plastic Surgery found that extensive CoolSculpting reviews showed only transient numbness for a few weeks after the treatment. There were no reports of long-term damage to nerve fibers, skin laceration or other adverse side effects.
In fact, CoolSculpting is so safe that most patients can return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. This benefit has helped CoolSculpting develop the nickname, “The Lunchtime Procedure.”
CoolSculpting in Charlotte is scientifically proven to be effective in reducing fatty tissue. It is also one of the safest options for contouring the body.
