    CoolSculpting procedures
    Although Bodcor doesn't offer CoolSculpting procedures, we want to make sure that our patients know about other weight-loss options.

    Anyone weighing the pros and cons of noninvasive weight loss treatments should learn about CoolSculpting, a technique that uses cold temperatures to kill fat tissue. The process works well for certain people, but it does have some risks that potential patients should know.

    Common Side Effects of CoolSculpting

    Patients who undergo CoolSculpting procedures can expect to experience some common side effects like:
    - Skin sensitivity
    - Muscle cramps
    - Numbness, tingling and tenderness in the treated area
    - Red skin
    - Mild swelling

    These side effects rarely last more than a few weeks, so they don't present any significant challenges.

    Other common side effects, however, can cause more anxiety in patients. Some people experience diarrhea while their bodies eliminate dead fat cells. If diarrhea lasts more than a few days, it puts people at risk of dehydration.

    Patients who receive CoolScultping around the chins or throats may experience a sensation that their throats are full. While this may feel strange, it doesn't present any health dangers.

    Common Side Effects of CoolSculpting

    Rare Side Effects Without Serious Consequences

    A small percentage of people who undergo CoolSculpting experience a condition called paradoxical adipose hyperplasia, a medical term that refers to fat cells that get larger instead of shrinking.

    For unknown reasons, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia occurs more often in men than women. Still, the condition only affects about 0.005 percent of patients. That means it only happens to one in 200,000 patients.

    Luckily, paradoxical adipose hyperplasia doesn't have any health risks. The only effects are cosmetic. Correcting the problem, however, requires surgery.

    Negative Effects of CoolSculpting

    Long-Term Negative Effects of CoolSculpting

    Long-term negative effects of CoolSculpting are rare, but they do happen. Long-term complications that some patients experience include:
    - Frostbite
    - Scars
    - Skin discoloration
    - Dry mouth (when CoolSculpting is used on the neck or chin)
    - Dizziness
    - Pain that can last a month or longer

    People Who Should Not Get CoolSculpting

    While CoolSculpting is a useful procedure for most people, certain health conditions can make the process unsafe. Patients who should not get CoolSculpting include those with:
    - Anxiety disorders
    - Chronic pain
    - Implanted medical devices
    - Dermatitis, hives and other skin conditions
    - Poor circulation
    - Autoimmune disorders
    - Diabetic neuropathy and similar nerve conditions

    Pregnant women and people taking blood thinners should also avoid CoolSculpting.

    Bodcor uses the latest laser lipolysis technology because we believe that it offers the safest, most effective way to target stubborn fat. Anyone who wants to learn more about Bodcor and other noninvasive weight loss treatments can contact us for more information.

    Why Choose Bodcor 4D Laser System

    If you’re one of those people who are not fit to undergo the CoolSculpting procedure or just afraid of the possible side effects, you can explore our 4D laser system.

    Instead of using cold treatments, we utilize the latest laser lipolysis technology. In this 4D Laser Weight Loss System procedure, fiber-optic lasers with various wavelengths target to melt fats.

    In a clinical study of laser lipolysis over the course of three years and more than 2,000 patients, experts found that the participants lose a substantial amount of fat. The patients also experience tightness in the skin after fat removal.

    Also, this clinical study proved that the laser lipolysis technology like Bodcor Treatments doesn’t pose any serious health threat or side effects to its patients.

    Our Bodcor System utilizes this technology and we believe that it’s way better than liposuction and other surgical fat removal procedures.

    Also, our body contouring Gilbert AZ doesn’t need any recovery time. It’s virtually painless aside from the mild redness on the treated area, dizziness, and thirst after each session.

    These side effects will usually go away after an hour or two. Still, our body contouring fat reduction is ideal for healthy individuals with no underlying health problems.

    We also encourage patients to switch to a healthier lifestyle before undergoing the non-invasive body contouring. This way, the benefits of the non-surgical body contouring Bodcor can be sustained.

    There are no recorded serious risks to laser lipolysis technology as of date. But if you want to know fully the ins and outs of the procedure, you can always contact us.
