How long after CoolSculpting will I see results?
It is important to understand that CoolSculpting does not deliver immediate results. As your body gradually metabolizes the damaged fat cells, you’ll notice the treatment area become smoother and tauter. It typically takes about 3 to 4 months for the full results of CoolSculpting to become apparent.
Does CoolSculpting work per cycle?
The visual results are gradual, but consistent. CoolSculpting is effective for a 20 to 25 percent reduction of fat in one area. Some patients only want one treatment; others want more than one to get the results they want, losing the same percent of fat each time.
How do I maximize CoolSculpting results?
Here are seven tips on how to improve CoolSculpting results:
- Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle. CoolSculpting only targets specific areas of fat, not the whole body.
- Drink Plenty of Water.
- Massage the Treated Area.
- Wear Loose Clothing or a Compression Garment.
- Avoid NSAIDs.
- Manage Expectations.
- Attend Follow-Up Treatments.
How many times can you do CoolSculpting in the same area?
While every patient is different, most patients benefit from one to three sessions for each area of concern. We recommend that patients wait at least 60 days before retreating any area.
Does CoolSculpting work on big stomach?
Yes. CoolSculpting was originally designed to be used to reduce belly fat, which is why one of the most common areas for treatment is the abdomen.
How many inches does CoolSculpting take off?
If you are trying to eliminate unwanted fat from a small area, you may lose half of an inch at most. If you are eliminating unwanted fat from a large area, like your chest or stomach, you may lose two or three inches of fat.
How many CoolSculpting cycles do I need?
In most cases, however, patients require two to three treatment sessions per treatment area. You’ll likely see an improvement in your treatment area about eight to twelve weeks after your CoolSculpting procedure. The most dramatic results will likely appear in 90 days.
Does drinking water help CoolSculpting?
Drinking adequate amounts of water will help your body eliminate fat cells faster. Stay hydrated before and after the procedure to help your body recovery faster and give the treatment a chance to do its job. You won’t see a change in your body the day after having CoolSculpting done.
What happens if you don’t massage after CoolSculpting?
While you don’t need to have a massage performed after CoolSculpting, it has been shown to significantly enhance fat loss.
