CoolSculpting Results are Long Lasting
the cells killed by CoolSculpting are typically not replaced over time.
Instead, other fat cells in the area that were not destroyed can enlarge. But
technically the results of CoolSculpting are very long lasting.
Coolsculpting and Fat cells
Coolsculpting works by freezing the fat cells which result in their permanent destruction. Other fat cells may enlarge in that area if you have an unhealthy diet and gain weight. That is why it is essential to maintain a healthy diet and exercise so that the results of your Coolsculpting are permanent. Please find a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in cool sculpting for the best results.
Since coolsculpting kills adipocytes,are they not replaced in due course of time?
Generally no. In some rare patients, fat cells can come back but usually this is a result of the remaining cells getting bigger. Once the cells are gone, I would not worry about them coming back. CoolSculpting as well as liposuction results in permanent removal of fat cells.
CoolSculpting permanently removes fat and fat cells.
It seems that for the most part once a fat cell is removed (either by liposuction or by destruction with cold or heat) is does not regenerate. Of course fat cells have the nasty ability to get bigger as they store more fat when we take in more calories than we burn. If you gain weight the remaining fat cells will get fatter and may blunt the results that you would otherwise enjoy. Always combine contouring procedures with some common sense diet and exercise for the very best outcomes.
CoolSculpting Effects on Fat Cells
CoolSculpting works by freezing fat cells without hurting the skin. The cells undergo apoptosis or programmed natural cell death. The lipids are absorbed by the lymphatic system and cleared. The loss of cells is permanent. Not all fat cells in the area are affected. Those that remain can still hypertrophy or enlarge so maintaining a healthy weight is important to your health and the outcome. If your weight is maintained the outcome of the procedure is permanent. Consult with a Plastic Surgeon experienced in CoolSculpting and Laser Liposuction to discuss all of your options. All the best!
Do the fat cells killed by CoolSculpting come back?
Once the fat cells have undergone apoptosis they are dead. They cannot be revived, but other cells may get larger.
Fat Cell Elimination Through CoolSculpting
CoolSculpting is an effective non surgical method to remove fat cells from a targeted area. During the treatment the fat cells are frozen and the body eliminates those damaged cells over the following three months. CoolSculpting causes a gradual reduction of fat and does not remove every fat cell from the treated area. The ideal candidate is at or near their ideal body weight and intends to maintain that weight through a healthy lifestyle. Patients can gain weight after CoolSculpting and the treated area may carry some of that fat, but the amount of fat storage capacity in that area has been reduced.
Most patients will want multiple treatments and special pricing may be helpful. Top CoolSculpting providers may have access to discounts that all practices cannot provide. My practice in Raleigh NC has Instant Rebates for one free CoolSculpting session with each session purchased. You can find the Premier Crystal Practice near you by searching the CoolSculpting website.
CoolSculpting Kills Fat Cells Permanently
The fat cells that are frozen and killed during a CoolSculpting treatment are permanently eliminated from you body. However, if you do not maintain a healthy diet and exercise the remaining fat cells in the area can increase in size and mask your results.
Are adipocytes destroyed by CoolSculpting replaced over time?
Adipocytes (fat cells) destroyed by CoolSculpting are not replaced over time. Not all of the fat cells in a treated area are destroyed however, so it is possible to still see the area get fatter if there should be an increase in weight. With weight gain, the fat would not just increase in the treated area but throughout the body.
