CoolSculpting has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of fat removal since 2010. It is one of the most popular choices for removing small pockets of fat without surgery or other invasive treatments.
CoolSculpting uses freezing temperatures to break down fat cells in targeted areas, usually stubborn areas of fat that diet and exercise cannot remove. There is no surgery or needles involved. Fatty tissue is placed between two rollers or panels and frozen. The cold does not damage your skin, other cells, or underlying tissue. It directly targets fat cells.
A person can lose about 20 to 25 percent of fat in the targeted area. CoolSculpting is not a substitute for weight loss and will not eliminate a large amount of fat. Instead, it finely shapes and smooths places that have been resistant to your diet and exercise efforts.
Since the fat cells are frozen, they are destroyed and then excreted by the body, so results can potentially last indefinitely. The dead fat cells cannot migrate or regrow, but new fat cells can appear.
To maintain your beautiful results, it is essential to adhere to a healthy diet and regular exercise. New fat cells can appear in or around the treated area with weight gain. So, to keep enjoying the beautiful results of your treatment, be committed to eating healthy and have a consistent exercise routine.
How Long Does Before I See CoolSculpting Results?
Visible fat reduction begins around the four-week mark. After eight to 10 weeks, up to 90 percent of fat cells will have been removed. Some people continue to lose fat cells for up to six months post-treatment.
Can I Get the Same Area Treated More Than Once?
Yes! If you regain fat or have a large treatment area to begin with, you can undergo CoolSculpting in the same place as long as three weeks elapse between the treatments.
CoolSculpting is most effective for small pockets of stubborn fat on the following:
- Lower back
CoolSculpting can also decrease the appearance of cellulite when fat is removed under the areas where cellulite exists. CoolSculpting does not work on the skin, so it will not remove cellulite but can improve its appearance.
