How Long Do CoolSculpting® Results Last

Aging can leave you with isolated spots in your body that have fat deposits. You may struggle to try to lose the fat around your upper arms, waist, chin, and thighs. Reducing such fats can be a struggle even if you eat a balanced nutritious diet. To get rid of the fat, you may need a CoolSculpting® treatment.

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-invasive treatment that helps you lose fat without having surgery. If you are willing to remove stubborn fats without going under the knife, CoolSculpting is the best way to do it.

Unlike liposuction, which happens through surgery, CoolSculpting does not need a long recovery time. It offers a faster and gentler way of eliminating trouble spots and fat bulges. The best part about this treatment is that it is painless and has less downtime. 

It is crucial to note that CoolSculpting is not a weight-loss substitute. It removes stubborn fats that do not respond to regular exercise and a balanced diet. Living a healthy lifestyle is your responsibility. Discipline is essential to maintaining the results of the treatment.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting uses a process called cryolipolysis that damages fat cells. The frozen cells take a few weeks to die. Your body then absorbs and eliminates them. The treatment freezes the fat in your body without posing any threat to your health. CoolSculpting only targets the fat cells that need freezing. This treatment does not damage the surrounding nerves, skin, or tissues.

Areas of treatment are:

  • Flank.

  • Inner thighs.

  • Outer thighs.

  • Upper arms.

  • Abdomen.

  • Under your chin.

CoolSculpting has no downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the session. Patients can work, go to school, or even do their exercising after treatment.

CoolSculpting Results

It is crucial to know that CoolSculpting does not give immediate results. The changes are gradual because your body takes time to metabolize the dead fat cells. Gradually you will notice the treatment site becomes tauter and smoother. Results fully show within a period of three to four months.

CoolSculpting can deliver long-lasting results. The process gets rid of the fat cells in the body, and they do not come back again. However, it is crucial to maintain a healthy lifestyle because you can still gain weight in the treated area. 

Are You a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting can treat people of every age, skin type, and gender. Compared to fat loss surgeries like liposuction or tummy tuck, this procedure is less risky. It is safe to get pregnant after treatment.

However, you will gain back the weight and fat during your pregnancy. Patients should go for CoolSculpting when they have no plans of having more children. Doing so will allow you to enjoy longer results. Pregnant or nursing mothers should not take the treatment.

How to Sustain Results After CoolSculpting

The main goal of CoolSculpting is getting rid of stubborn fats in certain areas of your body. It is thus ideal to be diligent in keeping fat from coming back. Doing so will help you have long-lasting results. You can maintain weight through:

  • Regular exercising.

  • Finish having children before CoolSculpting.

  • Eating a healthy diet.

  • Maintaining your weight.
