Body sculpting is a 30-minute process that can provide long-term results lasting between five and ten years. It reduces fat and tones areas such as the stomach, buttocks, calves, thighs and arms. Cold sculpting treatments actually destroy fat cells, so the results can be permanent. To maintain long-term results, a person may need to follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.
Once fat cells are removed, they cannot migrate or grow back. After the cold sculpting treatment, the results will begin to appear a few weeks after the procedure. The patient may notice a visible reduction in fat within 3-4 weeks, but dramatic improvements will be seen approximately 8 weeks after treatment. After 8 to 10 weeks, approximately 90% of the target fat cells may have been eliminated, but in some cases, the result may continue to develop for 6 months.
Cold sculpting can also be safely repeated in the same area with an interval of approximately 3 weeks between each procedure. It is not intended to be used as a substitute for diet and exercise, but as an additional boost to help a person achieve their fitness goals. The number of CoolSculpting treatments needed for an area depends on the desired results and the body's reaction to the treatment. Clinical studies and patient reports show that the average fat reduction is up to 20% after treatment with CoolSculpting.
You should wait four to six weeks between treatments. To further reduce fat in the treated area, you can opt for more treatments. Many non-surgical treatments require occasional follow-up treatments for results to remain good. The process involves applying a specialized applicator to the skin in the treatment area before it transmits very cold temperatures to the subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin).
The body needs time to get rid of frozen and destroyed fat cells, so you can expect to see final results up to six months after treatment. Research has shown that subcutaneous fat cells are more vulnerable to cold than surrounding tissues, allowing the cold sculpting procedure to effectively reduce and destroy fat cells in a process that involves gradual disintegration. As your body gradually metabolizes damaged fat cells, you'll notice that the treatment area becomes smoother and tighter. However, CoolSculpting does not prevent or prevent subsequent weight gain, which can cause fat cells to enlarge and generate new fat cells in the treated area.
CoolSculpting is one of the most popular body contouring treatments today because it focuses precisely on areas of fat that don't go away with diet and exercise. Instead, it's a treatment designed to help men and women eliminate fat that doesn't respond well to a healthy diet and regular exercise.
