One of the major advantages of CoolSculpting over other procedures is that it is non-invasive, meaning there are no incisions or surgical risks involved. Additionally, the treatment session itself takes only a few hours in a medical office, so patients don’t have to worry about taking extra time off work or dealing with long recovery periods. Another benefit of CoolSculpting is that it requires very little maintenance after the session has been completed; all that is typically needed is an exercise program to help maintain results.
Many people find this to be more appealing than undergoing plastic surgery, which often involves extensive follow-up visits and lengthy recovery times.
CoolSculpting may not provide as dramatic results as other treatments such as liposuction or a tummy tuck, which are considered the gold standard when it comes to body contouring treatments.
Additionally, while many people experience visible results within two weeks following treatment, the full benefits may not be seen for several weeks or even months afterward.
For these reasons, it’s important for patients considering CoolSculpting to understand their own individual needs and goals before deciding on any particular treatment plan.
