Just when you were ready to try out non-invasive body sculpting, Linda Evangelista says she was ‘brutally disfigured’ after CoolSculpting.
What is it that’s so dangerous about this treatment, and does everyone get terrible side effects?
What Is Non-Invasive Body Sculpting?
Body sculpting, also known as body contouring, is a method of non-invasive fat reduction for areas like your stomach, thighs, arms, and buttocks.
The FDA approves most treatments, which have little to no downtime and are typically pain free.
Sounds Safe, But Linda Evangelista Says She Was ‘Brutally Disfigured’ After CoolSculpting. What Is It?
CoolSculpting is a body sculpting technique that uses a technique called cryolipolysis. This process involves squeezing portions of fat between two cold plates to freeze and destroy fat cells.
Usually, when fat cells are frozen and killed, they are easily and safely removed from your body through your waste system. But, rarely, some people experience paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH) as a result.
Alright, Tell Me More About PAH!
PAH is a serious side effect. It’s when cryolipolysis makes your fat swell and harder, as well as remain in the treated area, instead of dying and being removed by your body. Most people can correct this side effect with liposuction or more body contouring treatments, but there’s no guarantee that your body will return to normal.
I Don’t Think CoolSculpting Is for Me – What Else Is There?
While there are many alternatives to CoolSculpting, Emsculpt is by far the best. That’s because it safely uses radiofrequency (RF) to melt away fat and electromagnetic pulses to tighten and tone your muscles. Plus, it has no risk of PAH.
