The target fat treated with Coolsculpting is treated at temperatures below freezing 10-11 degrees (check this). The fat cells are sensitive to the cold and then undergo a natural cell death and ultimately are eliminated from the body through the lymphatics.
Coolsculpting is best when
performed on an area that has an excess number of fat cells. For example,
women say, "When I gain weight, it goes straight to my belly."
That means that you were born with more fat cells in your abdominal area.
It would be great to perform coolsculpting in that area to reduce the
number of fat cells there and make that are more proportional with the rest of
your body. Then, if you gain weight, it will be more evenly distributed
over your body. It won't just "go straight" to one area.
The fat loss is permanent
after Coolsculpting. You typically lose 20-25% of the fat in the area
treated, each time you treat it. I have done it to myself and my staff.
It is truly effective and has no down time.
Best of Luck,
The fat cells are already frozen after the CoolSculpting procedure is finished. Following the procedure, the body gradually and naturally eliminates the frozen cells. Generally, some results can be seen in as little as two weeks, but the full results will not be present until after 3 months. How quickly you see results depends on your individual body and metabolism.
Some patients can see results as early as a month but optimal results takes 3 months. If you're getting a treatment expect within 1-3 months to see your results. I wish you the best!
Coolsculpting is a fabulous procedure but it takes a minimum of 4 months to see the results. Please consult a board certified dermatologist for the best results.
Both answers are correct. You can often see the changes occurring in as little as 2-3 weeks but for the cells to be eliminated and the skin to tighten and change following treatment, your final results may not be evident for up to 3 months.
Results take 3 months to see after coolsculpting, this is because the fat that is frozen takes time for the body to remove and remodel that skin in that area. Best, Dr. emer.
I appreciate your question.
It takes 2-3 months to see final results
You will start to notice a different around 3 weeks
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!
Once the treatment is complete the fat cells have been killed. Over the next few months your body's immune cells start eliminating the dead fat cells from your body. In ideal situations you can start seeing results in as little as 3-4 weeks. The treatment continues to work for about 3 months, so you can continue to see improvement up to 3 months after your treatment.
