Can you do Coolsculpting at Home?


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 exist. Not only does it not work, it can actually be extremely dangerous if you’re not careful. 

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

The dangers of trying to freeze fat 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

*These are not FDA approved methods of ridding fat!

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 freezing fat” 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 device uses a specifically designed suction applicator that ensures the targeted area of fat stays at the surface. That way, the treatment goes beyond the skin to attack fat cells. There’s also a safety measure built into the device 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
  • Scarring
