How Long Do Results Last With Coolsculpting Treatments?
As you age, you may find yourself struggling with isolated areas of fat. Even if you follow a nutritious diet with plenty of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean protein and exercise regularly, you may have a difficult time losing fat around your waist, thighs, upper arms, and chin.
What is Coolsculpting?
If you’re hoping to get rid of this unsightly fat but do not wish to undergo a surgical procedure such as liposuction, CoolSculpting can help. This non-invasive treatment can help you lose stubborn fat without surgery. Keep reading to learn how CoolSculpting works and how long you can expect its results to last.
Are Coolsculpting Results Long Lasting?
It is important to understand that CoolSculpting does not deliver immediate results. As your body gradually metabolizes the damaged fat cells, you’ll notice the treatment area become smoother and tauter. It typically takes about 3 to 4 months for the full results of CoolSculpting to become apparent.
Since CoolSculpting destroys fat cells, it delivers long lasting results. Once your fat cells are gone, they won’t be able to grow back again. However, keep in mind that receiving a CoolSculpting treatment does not mean you’ll never gain weight in the targeted area again so maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential.
How Does Coolsculpting Work?
CoolSculpting uses cryolipolysis, which is a process of using extreme cold to damage fat cells that are then safely absorbed and naturally eliminated by the body. A CoolSculpting treatment involves freezing fat without affecting healthy tissues. In just one treatment, you can expect to see a 20 to 25 percent reduction in fatty tissue.
Fortunately, there is no downtime with this treatment. As soon as it’s been completed, you can return to work, school, and even exercise immediately.
If you do opt for CoolSculpting, remember that it is not a substitute for weight loss. Instead, it is a treatment designed to help men and women remove fat that does not respond well to a healthy diet and regular exercise. It is your responsibility to lead a healthy lifestyle if you’d like to maintain results from CoolSculpting.
