Does coolsculpting have a long lasting effect?

Thank you for your question. The results from CoolSculpting are permanent. However, we do recommend maintaining a healthy lifestyle as the remaining fat cells in the area can still expand with weight gain. Regards,

CoolSculpting Long Term Results

Yes-once you treat in an area, CoolSculpting removes the fat in the area for good. Keep in mind that it may take 2-3 treatments to achieve the desired results. This type of procedure is meant to coincide with a healthy diet and exercise routine. Should you gain weight it will be gained in areas that have not been treated with CoolSculpting.
