How Long Do CoolSculpting Results Last?

The human body is an amazing combination of nature and science, working in harmony to reach peak condition in almost any circumstances. That’s why it’s so frustrating when your hard work exercising and eating right doesn’t do anything to reduce those stubborn pockets of fat we all have. That’s why, at Trilogy Medical & Aesthetics, we’re so excited about the CoolSculpting system.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

The science of body fat reduction isn’t limited to a healthy lifestyle. When scientists discovered fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than the surrounding tissues, CoolSculpting was born. CoolSculpting delivers precisely engineered cooling to stubborn areas where fat accumulates, or areas that are difficult to exercise, like the neck or double chin. This controlled cooling targets unwanted fat cells, crystalizing them to cause cell disruption and death, and your amazing body then filters out the dead cells through your lymphatic system. It’s that easy. No downtime, no surgery, and no pain. In fact, the treatment is so easily tolerated, patients often read, check email, or even nap during their CoolSculpting session.

Do CoolSculpting Results Last?

Humans are born with a fairly static number of fat cells. Weight gain or loss doesn’t add additional fat cells, instead increasing or decreasing your existing cells’ size. Because of this, the fat cells crystalized by the CoolSculpting system and filtered out of the body through natural flushing processes are gone, for good.

Each CoolSculpting treatment targets and disrupts the cell membranes of between 20-25% of fat cells in an area to shrink those stubborn fat pockets. While not designed for significant weight loss or as a treatment for obesity, CoolSculpting, in just one session, can take inches off your waistline, remove centimeters from around your thighs, or smooth and sculpt your flanks, so your clothes fit better, and the result is a slimmer, more shapely, contoured silhouette you can be proud of. Many CoolSculpting patients are happy with their results after just one treatment, and because those cells are gone for good, maintenance treatments are not necessary. For other patients, their aesthetic goals require two, or sometimes three CoolSculpting treatments to reach optimal outcomes.

How Do I Maintain My Results?

The best candidates for the CoolSculpting procedure are those who are within a 20-30 pound range of their ideal weight. For the smoothest, longest-lasting results, it’s important to maintain an active lifestyle with healthy eating and exercise as part of your regular routine. Those cells targeted by CoolSculpting won’t return, but the remaining ones you have may still fluctuate in size with weight gain.
