Are CoolSculpting Results Permanent?

CoolSculpting is one of the best procedures on the market when you want to finally get rid of that stubborn fat around the thighs, abdomen, or anywhere else. Thousands of patients experience amazing results every year with this new fat freezing procedure, but one of the most common questions we get from patients is -- how long will these results actually last?

So are CoolSculpting results actually permanent, or do they eventually fade away? The results from this procedure can be permanent if you maintain it. CoolSculpting can be a quick fix to help remove unwanted fat and sculpt the body, but it is not a permanent solution to a healthy lifestyle. 

Does CoolSculpting Last Forever?

Many patients come in thinking that they’re about to experience a procedure that will change their body for the rest of their lives, and while CoolSculpting is a highly effective procedure that eliminates up to 25% of the fat cells in the targeted area, it isn’t magic: without the proper care and maintenance to your health and physique, you can definitely gain the fat again eventually.

The number of fat cells in your body stays consistent throughout your life and it grows whenever you gain weight. CoolSculpting can deliver long-lasting results because its process involves eliminating these fat cells so they technically cannot grow back again. 

However, unhealthy habits can cause these fat cells to grow back, and can affect the results of the procedure. This means that even if the process involves removing fat cells from your body, the remaining fat cells can still get larger. It is also important to know that CoolSculpting treatments are not equivalent to weight loss because when 25% of fat is being shed from your body, it doesn’t really amount to much. 

The procedure helps contour your body and achieve your desired shape, but it is not a substitute to a healthy lifestyle. Maintenance is required to make sure that the results are permanent. 

Maintaining Results of CoolSculpting Treatments

Before a CoolSculpting treatment, it is best to consult with a medical professional to know what to do before and after a treatment. Setting a consultation with people who are highly skilled and knowledgeable about the treatment helps you achieve optimal results. 

After a CoolSculpting treatment, it is important to know how to maintain its results. Failure to do so may lose the effects of the procedure. Here are some things you can do to maintain the results of your CoolSculpting treatment:

  • Exercise: Having a regular exercise routine helps in maintaining the results of your CoolSculpting treatments. Exercise keeps your heart rate up to target and tone different parts of the body. You may stick to simple aerobic and strength exercises to maintain the results of CoolSculpting.
  • Healthy diet: A great way to ensure the results of CoolSculpting is to be mindful of the food that you are eating. Diet is an important part of fat loss, and a healthy diet will help you maintain the results of the treatment. To avoid gaining weight quickly, you should avoid foods that are high in calories. It is best to avoid food that is high in sugar and incorporate more protein and vegetables into your diet instead.
  • Maintenance sessions: Some people may need maintenance sessions to retain the effects of CoolSculpting treatment. These follow-up treatments can help provide additional results after several months.  

CoolSculpting vs. Other Fat Removal Treatments

Unlike other fat removal treatments, CoolSculpting does not require any surgery. Compared to other treatments, it is minimally invasive and does not require any downtime. This treatment is a great option for those who cannot undergo surgical procedures. Here is a comparison of CoolSculpting and other fat removal treatments: 

Fat Removal TreatmentWhat is it?How permanent is it?
CoolSculptingCoolSculpting uses a patented cryolipolysis technology to freeze fat in areas of the body that cannot be targeted by proper diet and exercise. The procedure takes around 1-3 months to see optimal results. It gives long lasting results if maintained. 
LiposuctionLiposuction is a surgical procedure that removes fat in the body. Because of this, there are added risks like infection, fluid accumulation, damage to organs, and more.  This procedure gives immediate results. These results are permanent if maintained properly. 
Laser LipolysisLaser lipolysis uses laser energy heat to destroy fat cells. During this treatment, the body’s lymphatic system eliminates the fat in around 12 weeks. Optimal results of a laser lipolysis procedure can be seen after 12 weeks. The procedure leaves fat cells incapable of storing fat any more. 
Ultrasonic CavitationSome body contouring methods use ultrasound technology to break apart fat cells so your body can naturally excrete them. Further clinical trials are needed to determine the effectiveness of ultrasonic cavitation. However, its permanence will depend on whether you maintain the initial results of the procedure.  

CoolSculpting for Fat Removal

One of the best methods to remove fat from the body is CoolSculpting. It is a popular procedure for the reduction of unwanted belly fat. The treatment uses a patented cryolipolysis technology that delivers a controlled temperature to the fat cells underneath your skin, eventually killing them and allowing the body to flush them out as waste.

Clinical research shows that freezing areas of targeted fat deposits can kill subcutaneous fat cells without damaging other tissues. This results in improvements in your figure, and so the treatment is an effective procedure that yields quick results.  

This cooling technology freezes the fat in your body and then it is naturally flushed out by our system in a span of 1-3 months. This process gradually gives your body a slimmer contour, and its full effects can be seen after all the fat is flushed out. The treatment was approved by the FDA in 2010, and it is usually used for areas that cannot be reduced by proper diet and exercise. 

This procedure can target different parts of the body; the treatment can be done on the thighs, abdomen, arms, and chin. It can also target the flanks, which are sides of the body between the ribcage and the hipbone, for a more slender figure. 

CoolSculpting is a minimally invasive and non surgical procedure with minimal downtime. Each session lasts around one hour, and you can immediately return to your normal activities after the session. There is minimal pain and discomfort experienced from the procedure; most patients simply feel a tingling sensation because of the cooling effect. Additionally, the side effects of CoolSculpting only last for a few days.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "The treatment itself was not uncomfortable. Afterwords, I felt great. I didn't really notice anything for about 30 days. After day 30 until about a month later, I started noticing that my favorite jeans were not as tight anymore. I wasn't having to suck in to get them buttoned. And by that two month period after my CoolSculpting

  • "It's subtle at first, and then a month later you look and go, "Wow - It really did something!" It really moved the bar for me, and I'm feeling better about myself already. It feels so good to put on anything and know I look as good as I've ever looked. And I didn't say that or feel that when I was in my 20's, 30's, and 40's."
