How Much Fat Can You Lose With Coolsculpting?
The fat cells in your target treatment region will typically be reduced by about 20 to 80%, but bear in mind that this is a toning treatment, not a weight-loss treatment. The size of the treatment area is the most important element in determining how much fat you can lose. Another crucial variable to consider is the amount of fat in a certain location. If you have a lot of extra weight, expect to see a reduction of about 26%.
How Does This Treatment Work?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that freezes and removes fat from the body. It’s based on the science of cryolipolysis, which is the destruction of fat cells by freezing. This treatment is FDA-approved and has been clinically proven to reduce fat in the treated area by up to 25%. The best part is that there is no downtime and you can resume your regular activities immediately after treatment.
This process freezes the fat cells and over time, your body naturally processes the fat and eliminates these dead cells. Most people see a noticeable difference in their appearance after just one treatment, but some may need more than one treatment to achieve desired results. This is an excellent option for those who are looking to remove stubborn fat without surgery or downtime. It can be used to target areas like the abdomen, thighs, arms, and chin.
History of Treatment
This treatment was developed by two Harvard-affiliated dermatologists, Dr. Dieter Manstein and Dr. Rox Anderson. They observed that some children who ate popsicles got dimples in their cheeks due to the freezing of the fat cells in their skin. This gave them the idea to develop a treatment that would freeze and remove fat cells from the body, which became CoolSculpting.
The first CoolSculpting device was cleared by the FDA for use on the abdomen in 2010. Since then, it has been cleared for use on other areas of the body, including the thighs, arms, and chin. This treatment is now available at over 700 offices worldwide. This is a very safe and effective treatment.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
You may start to see results as soon as three weeks after your treatment, but the most dramatic results will be visible after two months. Your body will continue to flush out fat cells for up to four to six months after treatment.
