How Long Does It Take to See Results After CoolSculpting?
When a CoolSculpting treatment is carried out, the targeted fat cells in the area are frozen. The frozen fat cells are slowly broken down by the body and eliminated through a process carried out by the liver. This process takes a few weeks to be fully carried out.
Results are Seen Within Three Weeks
Just after the procedure, it can be difficult to tell any results. As time goes on and the body starts to break down the frozen fat cells, the results will become more evident. Most people will begin seeing changes to their physique within about three weeks and the appearance will improve over the course of three to six months.
Is More Than One Treatment Necessary?
While most people are able to get the results they desire after a single CoolSculpting treatment, it is possibly more than one will be needed, especially in larger areas. As the body continues to breakdown and eliminates the frozen fat cells, changes will continue to occur in the appearance of the treatment area.
If after a few months the individual is not entirely happy with the area, further treatment can be sought. CoolSculpting diminishes fat by about 20-25% with each treatment. Most people achieve their desired results within one to three treatments. The number of treatments needed will be determined by the doctor or aesthetician.
After three weeks, the body will have broken down the destroyed fat cells to the point changes will be noticeable. Continued changes will occur over the following weeks, culminating in the final results around three to six months after the CoolSculpting treatment. If other treatments are needed, they should be carried out with a waiting period between each treatment, for the best results.
