CoolSculpting is one of today’s most popular non-surgical body contouring methods. Patients love the treatment because they see results with no needles, no surgical incisions, no anesthesia, no pain medications, and no recovery time. CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and eliminate fat cells in targeted areas. The results of CoolSculpting are well documented through clinical trials and the device is approved by the FDA to eliminate unwanted body fat.

What Results Will CoolSculpting Provide?

CoolSculpting is clinically proven to reduce body fat in a targeted area. Specialized applicators are used to remove unwanted body fat in various body areas including the abdomen, arms, hips, thighs, knees, chin, and back bra area. CoolSculpting can be used to address a single problem area or enhance the entire body to create a tighter, more toned silhouette.

Are Multiple Treatments Needed?

While individual results may vary, each individual CoolSculpting treatment session reduces fat in the targeted area by an average of 18-20%. After the initial treatment is complete, further reductions can be obtained with additional treatments. As such, a series of treatment sessions may be required to provide the final end result desired by the patient. Most CoolSculpting providers will provide a comprehensive treatment plan that is tailored to address the individual needs of each patient.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Unlike the instant results provided by liposuction, CoolSculpting results occur in a more gradual manner. This is due to the time it takes for destroyed fat cells to be expelled from the body through its natural metabolic processes. Most patients can expect to see noticeable improvements in treatment areas around 3 months after treatment. Also, as previously mentioned, multiple treatment sessions may be needed to reach the patient’s goal.

How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Last?

It is possible for the results of CoolSculpting to last forever. This is because the fat cells targeted by CoolSculpting are completely killed off and expelled from the body. In order to keep the results, however, patients must maintain their post treatment weight by eating healthy, drinking plenty of water, and regularly exercise. This prevents the development of new fat cells along the treated area.
