Sometimes, no matter how much you diet or exercise, there are stubborn fat deposits on your body that simply won’t go away. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes cooling technology to reduce unwanted fat cells, giving you a more contoured physique. While the thought of a non-invasive treatment may sound great, many people wonder: How long do CoolSculpting results last?

Before we can answer that question, it is important to understand what happens during a CoolSculpting procedure. During the CoolSculpting treatment, an applicator is applied to the target area and delivers the cooling technology. The energy freezes the lipids in the fat cells, which causes them to die. The fat cells are then gradually flushed out of the body through natural processes over the next 8-12 weeks. Patients typically need 2-3 treatments to see optimal results.

Overall, CoolSculpting results should be long-term provided you follow a healthy diet & exercise. As the fat cells in the target area are literally frozen and eliminated from the body, they will not be able to grow or expand. However, CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment and cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells. If you have questions about the difference between weight loss & fat reduction, your CoolSculpting technician can answer any questions during your consultation.
