Does CoolSculpting Really Work?
In 2013 a review of the largest, most comprehensive review of cryolipolysis to date was published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal (ASJ) which is a peer-reviewed international journal focusing on scientific developments and clinical techniques in aesthetic surgery.1 ASJ is the official publication of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and numerous other major international societies of plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery representing South America, Central America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.
The study involved over 500 clients with nearly 3000 (three thousand) treatment cycles and concluded:
Cryolipolysis [CoolSculpting] was highly effective at reducing subcutaneous fat volume and was associated with few adverse events: only three cases of mild or moderate pain/neuralgia – all of which rapidly resolved.*
Lead author, Dr. Grant Stevens who is a Clinical Professor of Surgery, Director of the Aesthetics Division of the University of Southern California stated:
With careful treatment planning, proper applicator placement, and multiple treatment cycles, cryolipolysis [CoolSculpting] can produce results comparable to those of liposuction.*
Moreover, the Editor-in-Chief of the Aesthetic Surgery Journal Dr. Foad Nahai, MD, responded:
This is an important large study which confirms the safety and efficacy of cryolipolysis [CoolSculpting].*
Who is Foad Nahi, MD?
Dr. Nahi is an internationally recognized innovator in the field of plastic surgery and the only plastic surgeon ever to serve as both the President of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). He is also a former director of the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
So don’t just take our word for it when we say CoolSculpting really works. Believe the world’s leaders in aesthetic plastic surgery.
