Is CoolSculpting Permanent?


Is CoolSculpting Permanent?

CoolSculpting is one of our favorite non-surgical treatments for removing stubborn fat. Patients often lose 20% of the fat in the treated area with just one treatment. Best of all, CoolSculpting requires no downtime and patients return immediately to work and other activities. CoolSculpting is effective, but how long does it last? Are results permanent? Find out below and then call our offices to schedule your CoolSculpting treatment.

What Happens During a CoolSculpting Treatment?

CoolSculpting works by freezing unwanted fat. The treatment device delivers precise, controlled cooling to gently target fat cells under the skin. The frozen fat cells will eventually die and be naturally processed and eliminated from the body. The procedure typically takes about an hour, during which you can read, relax, or even take a nap. CoolSculpting is completely non-surgical and requires no anesthesia. You’ll feel intense cold as the treatment starts, but this fades quickly and isn’t painful to most patients. After treatment, you can leave immediately and resume any activities you like. Recovery is quick and symptoms are minimal. You’ll see results after your first treatment, but we can perform a second CoolSculpting treatment if desired. Average fat loss is about 20% per treatment.

How Long Do Results Last? Is CoolSculpting Permanent?

CoolSculpting permanently destroys fat cells. These cells don’t regenerate, so results last and last. Of course, you can still gain weight, but the excess fat will be stored in your other, remaining fat cells. Typically, patients notice a permanent improvement in the treated area. You’ll get the best results by maintaining a steady, consistent weight after treatment.
