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.
