Does CoolSculpting Last?

Before people commit and invest in fat-freezing, they want to know, “Does CoolSculpting last?” When it comes to any cosmetic treatment, money is a huge factor when deciding if you are committing. And understandably so. No one wants to invest cash in reducing fat cells if there is a chance the treatment is not going to be effective or provide lasting results. Read on to learn more about CoolSculpting and discover why you can count on fat-freezing to provide long-term, sustainable results.

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

Before answering, “Does CoolSculpting last,” it is important to address how CoolSculpting works at reducing stubborn fat bulges. Unlike weight loss treatments that only shrink cells (preserving their potential to expand again), CoolSculpting destroys the cell entirely. Cooling sessions effectively “freeze the cell to death” so it can never re-expand in the future.

Do Fat Cells Grow Back After CoolSculpting?

Once you reach adulthood, your body no longer creates fat cells. If you gain weight, the body stores the fat in existing cells. These cells expand to accommodate additional fat. With fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting or Liposuction, the fat cells are entirely removed from the body. Since the body does not create more fat cells, the ones removed can never grow back. Once those fat cells naturally process out of the body, they are gone. CoolSculpting clients can commit to fat-freezing knowing their results are going to last.

How Long Does CoolSculpting Last?

The right flank was left untreated,
providing a control for “fluctuations in weight.”

The researchers report “despite weight changes over the years, the treated left flank showed a persistent reduction in size and a change in contour.” They concluded, “Local reductions in flank fat have significant longevity in these subjects and suggest that results from Cryolipolysis may be very long‐lasting.”

So, does CoolSculpting last? Scientific findings show fat freezing results can last indefinitely.

How to Maintain CoolSculpting Results

Fat cells do not grow back after they are removed with CoolSculpting treatments. However, existing fat cells in the treatment area can still expand if you gain excessive weight. Therefore, any significant amount of weight gain obscures CoolSculpting results. If you want to preserve your fat reduction and make your CoolSculpting results sustainable, following a healthy lifestyle of clean eating and exercising is crucial.
