The results of Coolsculpting usually start being visible within a first few weeks. The average time to see first results is three weeks. For some patients, it may take up to eight weeks. Sometimes Coolsculpting results are not visible by eye. Looking at the before and after photos as well as measuring the area, will show the difference. Most of all, it is important to be patient and wait it out because those fat cells need time to dissolve. To see the end result it may take up to few months. With some patients, the whole process of fat cells reduction continues up to five to six months after the procedure. The most dramatic results are noticeable after approximately 2 months. It varies from patient to patient. It is important that a board certified physician determined that you are the right candidate for Coolsculpting.
What makes Coolsculpting worth the wait is the process itself. It works by the principle of suction and cooling. The areas with excess fat are sucked in and then exposed to cold, so the fat cells freeze. This is a completely noninvasive procedure and it requires minimum to no down time. That’s why it is worth the wait to see end results. Hence, it is hard to make a general statement on in how long it takes to see results since everyone’s body is different and results may vary depending on the amount of fat being treated, gender, and age. Coolsculpting has proven itself to be successful, whether being used over smaller or larger areas.
Finally, if you want to maintain the lost fat and inches from the targeted area, most of all is important that you maintain a healthy lifestyle. Coolsculpting will not prevent you from gaining weight in the future, therefore, you can build up the fat removed with Coolsculpting if you do not control your weight and do not maintain healthy life habits.
