CoolSculpting is quickly establishing itself as one of the most popular options for non-surgical body contouring around the country, and with good reason. Its results are measurable, and its method of action is backed by real science. People considering CoolSculpting at my Naples practice have a lot of questions. Here are answers to the ones I hear most often about what to expect after the actual treatment.
What’s the recovery like? One of the great things about CoolSculpting is that it doesn’t require any recovery period. In fact, the overwhelming majority of patients get right back to their regular activities after a session. The treated area is typically bit red and swollen and may be sore, similar to the way you’d feel after a workout.
When do I see results? CoolSculpting is extremely effective at destroying fat cells gradually. Typically, final results appear about 2 to 4 months after treatment. Most patients require only a single treatment, but some opt to return for more if their desired results aren’t apparent by the 4-month mark.
How long does it last? Once fat cells are destroyed, they don’t return. By keeping healthy diet and exercise habits, the results of your CoolSculpting treatment have the potential to last indefinitely. Keep in mind that weight gain is still possible, however, because the remaining fat cells can still expand.
