How Long Do Results Last After Body Sculpting?


Getting non-invasive body sculpting treatment such as CoolSculpting® can be life-changing. It can help you achieve your body goals and boost your self-confidence in a relatively effortless — and more efficient — way than traditional methods.

However, if you’re wondering how long the results will last and what you can do to maintain a sculpted body after the treatment, this article is for you.

Read on to learn more.

CoolSculpting® And Its Benefits 

CoolSculpting® is one of the non-invasive body sculpting procedures that help reduce fat deposits in different areas of the body.

Unlike surgical treatments, CoolSculpting® does not require a patient to go “under the knife”. Instead, it uses cryolipolysis or “fat freezing” to freeze and break down stubborn fat in the targeted areas without harming the surrounding tissues.

Moreover, it can reduce fat cells by up to 20-25% in the treatment area. In fact, CoolSculpting® can pinpoint your trouble spots and treat fat deposits in 9 areas, namely:

  • Under the chin
  • The abdomen
  • Below the jawline
  • Back fat
  • Bra fat
  • Underneath the buttocks
  • Upper arms
  • Thighs
  • Flanks

Body Sculpting Treatment: How Does It Work? 

Body sculpting treatments such as CoolSculpting® do not require any incision. Hence, you don’t have to worry about wounds or scars and you can return to your daily activities right after the procedure.

Here’s what you can expect during your visit here at my Scottsdale, AZ, med spa:

  1. I’ll map out the treatment area and lay a protective pad over your skin.
  2. Then, I’ll place the applicator on the area to be treated.
  3. Once settled into place, the applicator will lower your tissue temperature.

The entire treatment takes around 35 – 75 minutes and is virtually painless. At most, you will feel slight discomfort when your tissue goes numb due to the cold temperature.

Once the treatment is over, I’ll gently massage the treatment area to start the elimination process of the destroyed fat cells through your lymphatic system.

How Long Do Results Last? 

Here’s the million-dollar question: How long can you expect to enjoy your new and improved body after your body sculpting treatment using CoolSculpting®?

Theoretically, your CoolSculpting ® results should last indefinitely — meaning, CoolSculpting® permanently removes fat in the treated areas. However, the number of fat cells differs from person to person. Some individuals are more prone to gain weight because they have more fat cells than others.

Thus, it’s important to remember that CoolSculpting® is NOT a weight loss treatment; Rather, it’s a fat-loss procedure.

Instead of making fat cells shrink to reduce your overall weight, CoolSculpting® permanently eliminates them, resulting in a more defined and sculpted body. As long as you don’t gain additional weight, the results of CoolSculpting® are long-lasting.

To achieve the best, most long-lasting results, eat healthy and exercise regularly to maintain your ideal body.

Ideal Candidates for CoolSculpting®

Since CoolSculpting® doesn’t help you lose weight per se, ideally, you’re already at or within your ideal weight. In other words, you’re not seeking a treatment expecting a drastic change in body weight, but rather one that will help you achieve your ideal shape.

In addition, we recommend CoolSculpting® for patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or less – this ensures that the treated areas will fit into the applicator.

I have performed more than 3000 body sculpting procedures over the years and will create a customized treatment plan that is just right for you.
