There are a lot of questions that people have about CoolSculpting by ThinSculpting, and one of the most common ones is whether or not someone can have this procedure done. We want to help clear up as much of that confusion as possible, so today I want to talk to you about whether or not you qualify for this body sculpting procedure. Even the safest and simplest procedures will have people who, for one reason or another, should not have it done. However, we want to make sure that everyone who can have this done knows they are eligible.
For the most part, almost everyone is able to go through the CoolSculpting procedure, so it will be quicker and easier to explain any issues that may prevent someone from having a safe session. One of the biggest reasons to hold off on CoolSculpting is pregnancy. If you are pregnant or had a baby very recently, you will want to wait a little while before coming in. Although there is a large push for people to “bounce back” after having a child, it is important to remember that pregnancy is technically physically traumatic. Not only have you be constantly changing size for the past approximately 40 weeks, but your hormones are extremely unbalanced for a while as well. This is even more true if you are breastfeeding. Give yourself time to recover and to spend with your new baby before scheduling a CoolSculpting session.
Another thing that could exclude you from CoolSculpting is if you have certain cold-related diseases, such as Raynaud’s. As you may have gathered, CoolSculpting uses cold technology to “freeze” fat cells, so anyone who may have an adverse reaction to cold should not go undergo this treatment. Another group of people who may need to pass are those with certain nerve disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis or Fibromyalgia. Always speak to your primary doctor first and see if CoolSculpting is a good idea for you.
