Patient in Cleveland asks, “How long do CoolSculpting results last?”
Most of us have stubborn areas of fat that just can’t be eliminated with weight training, cardio exercise, proper nutrition, or radical diet plans. Even the fittest or thinnest people may have body areas that store fat. Many products and procedures claim to dissolve or reduce fat; however, the effectiveness may be questionable.
At Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine in Chagrin Falls, serving patients from the greater Cleveland area, we provide a full range of dermatology, professional skincare, and medi-spa services, including safe and effective fat reduction treatments such as Exilis, CelluSmooth, and CoolSculpting. These procedures address various parts of the body, depending upon a patient’s unique needs and goals.
Our experienced, on-site physicians and professional skincare team are committed to providing the latest technologies and advanced treatments for optimal outcomes. CoolSculpting is a procedure that has been receiving positive media coverage because of its proven results and patient satisfaction.
CoolSculpting is based upon scientific studies conducted at Wellman Center for Photomedicine, an affiliate of Harvard University, which determined that fat deposits could be eliminated through cryolipolysis, a method of freezing fat cells. With over a million treatments provided throughout the world, CoolSculpting is a non-invasive procedure that precisely targets areas of fat under the skin and applies gentle and controlled cooling, which freezes and destroys the fat cells without any effect on the surrounding skin and tissues. Over the course of four to six months, the fat cells are naturally flushed from the body, never to return. Other treatments may reduce the size of fat deposits, results may not last as long because the cells themselves remain and can grow again in the future.
Approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CoolSculpting requires no anesthesia, incisions, drains, pills, supplements, diet, or lengthy recovery period. Patients may return to their normal activities after treatment, although some redness or slight bruising may be experienced temporarily.
Up to 20 percent of a patient’s fat cells can be eliminated in one treatment. Results are typically seen in as little as three weeks, with the most obvious transformation occurring at about three months. The body will continue to lose treated fat cells for up to six months.
