Do you eat a healthy diet and workout regularly, but still have a few areas of stubborn fat that won’t budge despite all your efforts? CoolSculpting may be the incentive you need to shed those extra pounds. But before opting for CoolSculpting, you probably want to know – How long does CoolSculpting last?
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment that uses non-invasive controlled cooling to reduce unwanted fat. The CoolSculpting system selectively targets and freezes fat cells beneath the skin. The treated fat cells are then naturally processed and cleared by the body in the weeks following treatment, leading to a more sculpted figure.
There will be some improvement in body contours about three weeks after CoolSculpting, but optimal results can take 2-3 months.
How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?
Since CoolSculpting destroys and removes the targeted fat cells, the results are long-lasting. The specific fat cells treated with CoolSculpting are gone for good, and the body does not create more of these cells, so that’s why the results are long-term. However, CoolSculpting is not a substitute for diet and exercise, so patients need to maintain a healthy lifestyle after treatment.
What Happens If You Gain Weight After CoolSculpting?
If you gain weight after CoolSculpting, the remaining fat cells in the body will expand. However, the areas treated with CoolSculpting will be smaller since there are fewer fat cells there.
How Many CoolSculpting Treatments Do You Need?
Studies show that a single CoolSculpting treatment reduces fat in the targeted area by 20-25%. Additional treatments may be necessary depending on your aesthetic goals and the areas targeted for treatment.
If you’ve been searching for a way to get rid of stubborn fat, CoolSculpting is a safe, long-term solution that can give you the slimmer body contours you desire.
