If you have areas of hard-to-lose fat that prevent you from achieving the slimmed, curvy contour you want, CoolSculpting can help. If you’re researching this treatment, one of the biggest questions that could be on your mind is whether the results attained with CoolSculpting will be permanent, which will make the procedure worth the cost.
How CoolSculpting Eliminates Fat
To understand the results achieved after CoolSculpting sessions, you need to know how the procedure reduces fat in the treatment areas. CoolSculpting effectively freezes and kills fat cells by precisely cooling the tissue where fat cells reside. It does not damage other structures and cells in the tissue, such as nerves and blood vessels, as these tissues freeze at much lower temperatures. These cells are then disposed of using your body’s natural waste removal processes.
This is different to how you lose fat through diet and exercise. Through exercise, you use up the fat stored throughout your body evenly, making each individual cell smaller. Since no fat cells are actively destroyed or removed, the potential to regain weight in all areas of your body remain.
The Permanent Benefits of CoolSculpting
Because CoolSculpting kills fat cells rather than just shrinking them, the results attained from a treatment session are in some senses, permanent. However, this is dependent on your ability to maintain your weight, which is why the best candidates for CoolSculpting are often people who are close to their ideal weight and who have kept a stable weight prior to CoolSculpting.
Can You Gain Weight After CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting patients can absolutely gain weight following the procedure if their diet or exercise regimen changes. When you gain weight, you do so proportionally throughout your body, including the areas treated with CoolSculpting. This means that, while your overall body contour may change, the proportion of treated areas to un-treated areas will remain the same. This may result in an unsatisfactory appearance, which is why we encourage people to commit themselves to a healthy diet and exercise regimen to maintain their weight following CoolSculpting.
When Do You See Results from CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting, unlike some other non-surgical appearance-altering treatments, does not provide immediate results following treatment. Instead, your body needs time to flush out the crystallized fat cells, a process that can take several months. The time needed before you see results depends on your metabolism, the amount of fat frozen, and which area was treated. Most patients begin to see results after about three weeks, with full benefits achieved in four to six months.
