COOLSCULPTING AT HOME DOESN’T WORK | AVOID DIY FAT FREEZING

CoolSculpting at home is a cheap alternative to the popular fat-freezing procedure, but is it safe, and does it work? In short. No. A hard no. Unfortunately, the internet is full of bogus sources that promote knock off cryolipolysis machines or endorse DIY CoolSculpting hacks. These do-it-yourself alternatives tell unwitting audiences that they can safely and effectively freeze their fat by placing ice on their stubborn bulges. This is entirely wrong. These methods do not work. The only thing people are freezing when they CoolSculpt from home is their skin.

HOW COOL SCULPTING WORKS

To understand why CoolSculpting at home is dangerous and ineffective, you must understand the science behind the Coolsculpting treatment.

Cool Sculpting freezes away stubborn bulges using a scientific process called Cryolipolysis “Cryo” = cold + “lipo” = fat cells + “lysis” = cell death and removal. Fat cells are less hardy than skin cells. Extreme temperatures, whether through controlled cooling or heating, can damage fat cells without harming the skin.

However, these temperatures must be constant, precisely calibrated, and deployed for a precise amount of time. Without these elements, the fat cells will not be damaged, and/or the skin may be damaged.

CoolSculpting uses a state-of-the-art cooling system and proprietary applicators to subject stubborn bulges to precisely-controlled and precisely-timed cooling.

ELIMINATING FAT CELLS

Fat cells exposed to controlled cooling crystallize. This causes the membrane of the cell to rupture, disabling the fat cell from storing fat. No longer of use to the body, the destroyed fat cells are collected and excreted as waste. Eliminated fat cells cannot grow back. This leads to long-lasting reductions in stubborn bulges like belly fat, love handles, thigh fat, double chins, and more.

YOU NEED MORE THAN JUST ICE

It is not enough to simply expose a bulge to external cooling. You must secure fat cells in place during the procedure. This is essential because fat cells avoid cold outside temperatures by pulling themselves inwards towards the body, away from the surface of the skin.

To overcome this natural response, CoolSculpting applicators incorporate a sophisticated vacuum mechanism. This mechanism gently pulls the bulge inside the applicator, drawing fat cells up towards the surface, suctioning them in place for the duration of the treatment.  This mechanism prevents fat cells from retreating inwards and exposes them to 360-degree cooling.

COOLSCULPTING SAFETY MEASURES

CoolSculpting machines provide more than the necessary elements to freeze fat successfully. They are also equipped with gauges, sensors, and other safety mechanisms to ensure the patient’s health and well-being.

WHY COOLSCULPTING AT HOME DOESN’T WORK

Freezing fat may seem simple, but the process is complicated. Ice packs simply cannot produce the same effects as a legitimate CoolSculpting treatment.

CoolSculpting at home is ineffective for several reasons. First, DIY fat freezing hacks neglect the essential element of suction. Fat cells simply withdraw from the surface when ice packs are placed on the skin. Unless your fat cells are drawn up towards the surface of the skin and secured in place, it is impossible to expose them to the necessary cooling required to induce cryolipolysis.

Secondly, ice packs cannot provide consistent temperatures. Ice begins to melt when exposed to your body heat. They simply cannot remain cold enough for the necessary amount of time. The only thing ice packs will freeze effectively is your skin, which is subject to thermal injury and frostbite. Why risk your health for a DIY hack that doesn’t even work?
