Do you watch what you eat and exercise regularly, but still have stubborn fat bulges that won’t budge? CoolSculpting can help you get rid of that unwanted fat. CoolSculpting is a breakthrough body contouring treatment that uses cooling technology to remove stubborn fat. But how long do CoolSculpting results last.
What is CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment that uses fat freezing technology (cryolipolysis) to reduce isolated pockets of fat. It is the ideal treatment for trouble spots such as the abdomen, upper arms, flanks, and beneath the chin.
How CoolSculpting works
The cold temperature selectively targets and freezes the fat cells, without harming the surrounding skin and tissue. The treated fat cells are naturally flushed from the body in the weeks following treatment (learn more).
How long do CoolSculpting results last
The results of CoolSculpting are long lasting but are not seen immediately, because the body takes several weeks to process and remove the treated fat cells. Patients typically start to see some fat reduction about 4 weeks after treatment, but optimal results take about 3 months to appear.
The fat cells targeted during CoolSculpting cannot regrow, so they are gone for good. It’s therefore possible to enjoy the results of CoolSculpting for a long time. However, CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise, so patients are advised to make healthy diet choices and workout regularly to maintain the results.
Patients can expect up to 20-25% fat reduction in the treated areas after CoolSculpting.
