Are you interested in undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment, but not sure how long those results will last for?
We get it. That’s why we’ve outlined the average duration of CoolSculpting results, including steps you can take to maintain your results once you achieve them.
Average Duration of CoolSculpting Results
While every patient is different, most people can expect their CoolSculpting results to stick around, provided they continue to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen.
Here’s why: CoolSculpting uses its patented freezing energy to target and damage stubborn fat cells clustered beneath the dermal surface. Once these damaged cells are removed by the body’s metabolic processes, they’re completely gone. Clinical trials show that patients can expect about 25% of treated fat cells to disappear, leaving behind noticeable inch loss.
However, CoolSculpting cannot prevent the formation of new fat cells, which is why we always tell patients that this is not a weight-loss treatment. We also recommend that patients be within 15 to 20 pounds of their ideal weight in order to increase the likelihood that their results will be long-lasting.

How to Maintain Your CoolSculpting Results
If you want your CoolSculpting results to last – and we bet you do! – here are a few tips we recommend to maintain your CoolSculpting results:
- Continue to follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen so new fat cells won’t take the place of the old treated ones.
- Drink plenty of water right after your CoolSculpting session, as this helps encourage the body to flush out damaged cells.
- Schedule maintenance CoolSculpting sessions whenever needed.
- Be patient! CoolSculpting results can take about eight to twelve weeks to materialize.
Once those results do appear, you may notice that your clothes fit better, you’ve shed stubborn inches, and you have a brand-new lease on life!
I have consulted with many surgery centers over the past decade, from the Bay Area to LA, never have I found a team of professionals that I’ve liked more than the Plastic Surgery Center! Dr. Coscia is amazing (skill and personality)! I couldn’t be more happy with my results!
