When it comes to reducing body fat, the answer always seems to be the same: Eat a healthy diet. Get plenty of exercise. Sleep for seven to eight hours.
Yet what happens if you’re doing all of the right things, but you’re not seeing results?
That’s where CoolSculpting comes in.
How Does CoolSculpting Work for Fat Reduction?
This FDA-approved body contouring treatment uses freezing energy to break down and eventually eliminate fat cells, leaving behind noticeable results. CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction solution, meaning you don’t have to worry about scarring or general anesthesia to get the results you’re working so hard for.
Let’s take a closer look at how CoolSculpting works, as well as how long you can expect your CoolSculpting results to last.
What Results Can I Expect?
In clinical trials, CoolSculpting was shown to have reduced up to 25% of fat cells at the target treatment site. These exciting studies demonstrate just how powerful CoolSculpting can be – no surgery or downtime required.
Most people will see their targeted treatment areas shrink in size, meaning they may fit more comfortably in their favorite clothing.
Popular treatment areas for CoolSculpting include:
- Love handles
- Upper arms
- Back (bra fat)
- Chest (for men)
- Underneath the chin
- And more
How Long Will My CoolSculpting Results Last?
Once CoolSculpting treats and removes the fat cells, they’re gone forever; in that respect, CoolSculpting results can be permanent.
However, that doesn’t mean CoolSculpting can’t prevent the formation of new fat cells. For that reason, we typically recommend that CoolSculpting patients follow these tips to maintain their results:
- Continue following a healthy diet
- Drink plenty of water, especially after their CoolSculpting treatment
- Schedule maintenance treatments, if needed
- Get three-to-five thirty-minute workout sessions each week
- Get plenty of sleep and avoid highly stressful situations
