If you’ve been considering CoolSculpting® to treat those stubborn bulges of fat without a surgical procedure, you may be thinking to yourself, “When will I see results with CoolSculpting®?” With CoolSculpting®, when you will see the results will depend on your body goals, the number of areas treated, and your overall motivation and patience.
Before we can get into the results of CoolSculpting®, we should first discuss what a CoolSculpting® procedure entails and how it all works, right down to the science of it all. To start, CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive, non-surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat from the body that won’t disappear despite diet and exercise.
CoolSculpting® uses a specific technique called Cryolipolysis which involves the idea that cold can target fat cells without damaging the skin or surrounding tissue. CoolSculpting® involves an applicator that delivers a precise, cold temperature to the fat cells in a target area as a vacuum device draws in the specific area to ensure the correct fat cells are destroyed. As the fat is cooled, it crystallizes (freezes) and dies.
Through the death process, the body naturally deposits the dead cells through its natural waste system. As time goes on, the fat cells empty the fat cells out of the body. Because the fat cells exit the body, CoolSculpting® ensures that the fat cells are gone and will not be able to return.
During your first visit, your doctor will talk with you one-on-one. It’s important to talk to your doctor about your body goals and where you want to see the difference in your body. This way, the doctor can ensure the best CoolSculpting® treatment and application numbers to make sure you will see the best results in the most efficient amount of time.
Your treatment plan will be customized to your body, which will determine when you will see the results from CoolSculpting®. There are a few things to keep in mind as you try to calculate when you will see your results:
· Everyone’s Body is Different
Your clinician at SculptMD will work with you on the treatment plan that is best tailored to you and your needs. There are different applicators and sizes that are used on different locations of your body.
· Eliminate Fat Where the Bulges Bother You
Sometimes, a customized treatment plan could lead to more than one treatment. Where you want to treat your body and how you want it to look will determine your amounts of treatments.
· Holistic Approach to Body-Sculpting
CoolSculpting® is an alternative, non-surgical fat reduction procedure as opposed to other more common fat reduction procedures that require surgery. Patience and positivity will not only help you in waiting for your results, but it will feel like a weight lifted as you notice the sculpted shape you want forming.
Results with CoolSculpting®
After your CoolSculpting® treatment, your body may be slight irritated and red, but those symptoms will subside within a few days. They are completely normal as it is the reaction your body is having to the cold.
Some patients see results in as little as 3 weeks. The most dramatic results will be seen within 2 months of your initial treatment, and you could continue to see results as far in as 4 to 6 months after your treatment.
Patience is important as you wait for your body to deposit the dead cells. The length of wait for your results could have a number of contributing factors like:
- the amount of treatments you receive
- the location of your treatments
- even your diet and exercise routine
Enhance or Improve Your Results
There are many ways that you can help your results last, improve your results, and even speed up the results of your CoolSculpting® procedure.
Being close to your body goals will help the results and the number of treatments you will need. Getting as close to your body goals as you can with diet or exercises can help achieve the best results possible in a short amount of time.
SculptMD uses ZWave technology to help the results of your CoolSculpting® treatment as well as the treatment of cellulite. Patients who have used ZWave with CoolSculpting® at SculptMD reported seeing improvements in their CoolSculpting® results up to 50%.
