While CoolSculpting is one of the best-known body contouring treatments in the world, some women and men are understandably curious if it really works and produces long-lasting effects.
In fact, it’s not unusual for patients considering the noninvasive fat removal procedure to ask: How long does CoolSculpting last? What kind of fat reduction can I expect? When can I begin to see results?
Continue reading for the answers to these questions and to learn all about CoolSculpting’s efficacy and longevity.
How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?
Patients considering noninvasive fat freezing often want to know: How long does CoolSculpting last?
This is a reasonable question, as many women and men have lost weight only to have it return.
However, weight loss merely shrinks fat cells, which allows them to remain in the body and expand when you consume more calories than you burn.
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target, destroy, and eliminate subcutaneous fat cells from common trouble spots. As such, unwanted fat is gone for good, and results are permanent.
That being said, it is important for patients to maintain a relatively stable weight and healthy lifestyle in order to enjoy CoolSculpting benefits for years to come.
When Can You See Results from CoolSculpting?
Within four-to-six weeks of undergoing CoolSculpting, patients can begin to note visible fat reduction in the treated area.
Their clothes will also look and fit better, and they will feel more confident about their physique.
Results will continue to improve over the next eight-to-12 weeks, and final outcomes are typically seen at three months.
What Can Patients Expect from CoolSculpting Results?
In addition to asking – How long does CoolSculpting last? – patients are usually curious about expected results and degree of fat reduction.
While CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, and won’t change the number on your scale, it can eliminate up to 25 percent of fat in the treated area after one session.
Depending on individual concerns and goals, some patients may elect to undergo two-to-three CoolSculpting treatments to achieve desired effects.
