Coolsculpting Provides Improvement in Body Contour That lasts!
Hello and thank-you for your question.Coolsculpting works on the basis that fat cells are more sensitive to cold than are surrounding tissues of the skin. During the Coolsculpting treatment the fat is cooled to cause cryolipolyis while carefully monitoring the tempature of the skin surface. The fat cells release their fat and shrink. Unlike liposuction where the fat is removed, the released fat is metabolized and eliminated by your body. The improvement can generally be seen at 3 weeks, but it typically takes 3 months to see the final result. Most people require more than one treatment depending on degree of improvement needed and expectations. We utilize the new Cool Advantage applicators which are much more comfortable and reduce treatment time to 35 minutes. We currently have 4 Coolsculpting machines and can offer "Dual Sculpting" which further reduces the treatment time. I recommend scheduling a consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon well versed in all options for body contouring to determine if you an ideal candidate for Coolsculpting. Best wishes
Unlike liposuction, which physically removes fat from the body and therefore creates a more or less immediate result, CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, stimulating them to die on their own and be carried out of the body via the kidneys. This process takes time to complete, and it happens gradually. This is why patients see preliminary results after about 3 weeks and more significant results after a few months. Most patients find that the results are well worth the wait
Coolsculpting and Measurable Results
Typically, some patients will start to see results as soon as 3 weeks. With the majority seeing results 4 to 6 weeks post treatment. Full results (approximately 20% of the fat cells in the treated area eliminated) are seen 12 to 18 weeks post treatment.
Cool Sculpting results in as lithe as 4 weeks
You can see results in as little as 4 weeks but may take as long as 12 weeks. It is important to try and keep your normal routine. Keep your weight stable.
Some patients see improvement in about 2-3 weeks, but for the best results it may take 2-3 months. We normally recommend to repeat the treatment in 3 months for better fat reduction in the same area. Coolsculpting is not a weight loss solution and works the best on stubborn fat on stomach or flanks that will not go away with diet and exercise. With each treatment patients lose 25% of the fat permanently, resulting on smoother, firmer and more contoured body.
Final Results for CoolSculpting: Wait 3-4 Months
When patients undergo coolsculpting it may take several
months to see a result. Most patients are able to see their final results in
about 3 to 4 months after the procedure. Following the procedure cells respond
slowly to injury and gradually undergo cryolipolysis. This accounts for the
delayed clinical response to coolsculpting.
selection also plays a role in the post-operative response to coolsculpting.
When patients have small localized fat collections, responses tend to be more
noticeable then when patients have large amounts of fat.
important to be patient following coolsculpting. Given adequate time most
patients are very happy with the results from this procedure.
How long will it take to see results?
properly selected patients, the CoolSculpting procedure results in a
noticeable, measurable reduction in fat bulges in two to four months. Some patients have appreciated changes
beginning as early as 3 weeks after a procedure. What are the results? -----"Clinical
studies demonstrate that the Zeltiq Procedure provides noticeable, measurable
fat reduction in properly selected patients over the course of two to four
months after the procedure. Additional Zeltiq Procedures may be administered
two to four months after the initial procedure to achieve more fat reduction.
How soon will results be seen after CoolSculpting
Sometimes results can be seen as early as 4 weeks after your procedure, but full results can take up to 12 weeks. The procedure causes fat cell death and it takes your body some time to dispose of those fat cells gradually.
Multiple treatments can also be required in one area to see a more noticeable result. About 20-25% of fat cells are reduced with one treatment normally.
Results after CoolSculpting
The earliest you may start to see results after CoolSculpting would be 3-4 weeks, though it takes a full 3-4 months to see the final result. We always recommend at least 2-3 treatments, 1-2 months apart for best results.
You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
