CoolSculpting is one of the most researched fat elimination methods. In fact, many noninvasive body-contouring techniques have not received the same degree of comprehensive assessments as CoolSculpting. All-inclusive research has been performed, both by the designers of the treatment and independent researchers, to study the safety and tolerance of the cryolipolysis (CoolSculpting) method of fat elimination.
One recent, multicenter study, performed by investigators at the Skin and Laser Center in Belgium and France, reviewed a variety of clinical outcomes using the noninvasive cryolipolysis system. A total of 518 patients participated in their study. Here the side effects of CoolSculpting were monitored.. Patient tolerance and satisfaction scores were also evaluated. The outcomes of CoolSculpting treatments were assessed through a number of methods, including surveys, caliper measurements, and Before/After photographs.
CoolSculpting Patient Satisfaction Study Results:
- Out of the 518 CoolSculpting participants, no significant side effects or complications were reported. All safety requirements were met, and even after three months, there were no problems associated with any of the CoolSculpting treatments.
- A total of 89% of patients responded to their survey with a positive perception of their crypoloysis treatment. 96% reported only minimal discomfort, describing the CoolSculpting treatment as easily tolerable. More than 80% said they would be recommending the procedure to friends and acquaintances in the future.
- Using the caliper measurements and Before/After photos, researchers noted a 23% reduction in the fat layer thickness at the three month, post-treatment mark. Close to 90% of all patients showed a perceptible improvement. The areas that presented with the best results were the abdomen, lower back, and flanks (Love Handles).
The results from the Skin and Laser Center study show that when CoolSculpting is performed by an experienced provider, it is an extremely safe and effective treatment. A clinic with experienced personnel will be prepared to select the proper patients, and establish reasonable goals, ensuring the best noninvasive fat elimination results. Overall, cryolipolysis should leave patients with a high level of patient satisfaction.
