If you’ve done your best to make healthy lifestyle choices, but still have areas of stubborn fat, CoolSculpting may be the push you need to lose those lingering fat bulges. CoolSculpting is an advanced fat reduction treatment that freezes away unwanted fat cells. But chances are you want to know just how long the results last.
How CoolSculpting works
CoolSculpting uses fat-freezing technology known as cryolipolysis, to selectively target and freeze fat cells beneath the skin. The CoolSculpting system emits cold temperature that causes the targeted fat cells to crystallize and die, without harming surrounding cells and tissue. The treated cells are naturally processed and flushed from the body over the course of several weeks.
How long do CoolSculpting results last
The results of CoolSculpting are long-lasting, because the fat cells treated during the procedure are removed from the body and not replaced. However, the results are not immediate, because the body takes several weeks to process and expel the fat cells treated during CoolSculpting. Final results can take 3-4 months to show.
In order to maintain the results gained with CoolSculpting, patients are encouraged to adopt a lifestyle of healthy eating and regular exercise going forward. If patients gain weight in the targeted areas in the future, the remaining fat cells will increase in size.
CoolSculpting is not a weight loss solution, as it is designed to reduce isolated pockets of fat. It is therefore an ideal option for individuals that are already committed to a healthy lifestyle.
