If you have persistent areas of body fat that won’t go away despite your best efforts at diet and exercise, CoolSculpting can help you get a sleeker body. CoolSculpting is a popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment that contours and shapes the body, with minimal risk. But before trying CoolSculpting, you probably want to know how long the results last.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is an innovative body contouring treatment that uses a system of controlled cooling known as cryolipolysis, to freeze away unwanted fat cells. The CoolSculpting applicator selectively targets the fat cells without harming nearby tissue. The frozen fat cells eventually die, and are naturally disposed of by the body over the course of several months.
How many CoolSculpting treatments do I need?
Most patients need 1-3 treatments to achieve optimal results with CoolSculpting. Treatment sessions are spaced about 4 weeks apart.
How long do CoolSculpting results last
CoolSculpting reduces fat in the treated area by up to 24%, and the fat cells that are destroyed are gone for good, so the results are long-lasting. However, since the body takes time to metabolize the fat cells that have been destroyed, the results of CoolSculpting won’t be seen immediately.
Some fat reduction will be noticeable about 1-3 months after treatment, but final results can take up to 6 months to show. In order to maintain the fat reduction achieved with CoolSculpting, patients are encouraged to adopt healthy lifestyle habits, if not, they will gain weight just like they did before CoolSculpting (learn more).
