If you are considering CoolSculpting for those stubborn fat bulges, chances are one of the questions you have about the procedure is – How quick will I see results with Coolsculpting. Before answering that question, let’s take a closer look at the CoolSculpting process.
What exactly is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to freeze and destroy unwanted fat cells. It is a completely non-invasive procedure, so no incisions are necessary.
How does it work?
The cold energy selectively targets the fat cells causing them to crystallize, and eventually die. The fat cells treated during the procedure are processed and slowly expelled from the body over the following months.
How quick will I see results with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting reduces fat in the treated area by approximately 20-25%, but the results are not seen immediately, as the body takes time to flush out the fat cells. Patients typically notice some difference about 3 weeks after treatment, but maximum improvement can take 2-3 months to show (click here to learn more).
Are Coolsculpting results permanent?
The fat cells that are eliminated by CoolSculpting are gone for good, so the results are long-lasting. However, CoolSculpting is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle of eating well, and getting regular exercise.
Who is a good candidate?
The ideal candidate for CoolSculpting is someone that is interested in a non-surgical, no downtime treatment for isolated pockets of fat. It works best on patients that have fat bulges such as a muffin top, love handles, or belly pooch. CoolSculpting candidates should also be near their ideal weight, and have good skin elasticity.
