Does CoolSculpting at Home Work? 

Who needs to get a professional CoolSculpting treatment when you can get the same thing at home at a fraction of the price, right? 

Absolutely not. 

While it may be tempting to DIY your own cryolipolysis treatment, CoolSculpting at home does not work. Not only does it not work, it can actually be extremely dangerous if you’re not careful. 

Our professionals at AesthetiCare want our clients to look their best in the safest way possible. If you’re thinking about trying CoolSculpting at home, keep reading for why it may not be the best option. 

The dangers of CoolSculpting at home

If there’s one thing to take away, it’s this: fat freezing at home does not work. 

Some at-home fat freezing methods include:

  • Fat freezing belts
  • Ice packs
  • At-home fat freezing machines

CoolSculpting is more than just applying something cold and freezing away fat; it’s an FDA-cleared medical device. When you try to do it yourself, you’re literally just putting ice on the area, nothing else. That’s because fat cells don’t like cold temperatures, so when they’re exposed, they’ll basically go into hiding deeper in your tissue. When you strap on that at-home “fat freezing” device, your fat cells will no longer be close to the surface, leaving you with cold skin and zero results. 

On the other hand, the CoolSculpting machine uses a suction device that ensures the fat stays at the surface. That way, the treatment goes beyond the skin to attack fat cells. There’s also a safety measure to ensure your skin doesn’t get too cold, and you can’t say the same about any at-home method. 

Therefore, instead of freezing fat cells, you could really hurt yourself. Dangerous side effects include: 

  • Numbness
  • Frostbite
  • Permanent skin damage

Krissy is thorough and easy to talk to. She is confident in her skills and put me at ease.

Jessica is always keeping me up to date on new and exciting treatments. Although I have done multiple Intracel treatments in the past, this time she encouraged me to add on PRP. I highly recommend. Healing time was so fast!

Jessica did a great job always checking with me on how I was feeling. She was always concerned about how I was doing and doing the best job she could!

Jennifer explained everything in details and was very diligent in making sure that the procedure and follow up went well

I was given the proper guidance and steps to take to make my skin better. I truly love the honesty, care, and time taken to help find solutions to make my skin better. The before and after pictures truly show a difference on how well the procedure works. And I’m still noticing differences as my skin continues to heal.
