Most people assume that a good diet and vigorous exercise routine are enough to get rid of stomach flab or a double chin. While diet and exercise are essential to a healthy lifestyle and certainly encourage weight loss, they may not be enough to target stubborn fat.
Factors like genetics and medical conditions can contribute to fat accumulation around the face or midsection, making it harder to achieve weight loss in these areas. Are you trying to lose small amounts of fat from specific areas around your body? Body contouring treatments like CoolSculpting could be the solution you’ve been searching for.
At Balle Bliss Luxury Medical Spa, we offer CoolSculpting belly sessions and other CoolSculpting services. Find out how much weight you can lose from the CoolSculpting process.
What Is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that offers body contouring effects. This treatment uses strong cooling energy to destroy fat cells in certain problem areas, such as the:
Patients love CoolSculpting because it is a simple and straightforward treatment that yields real results. It can be used on the face and body to give you a figure you can’t achieve in the gym.
How Does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting is a unique body sculpting procedure because of how it works to remove fat from the body. How does CoolSculpting work? It essentially freezes your fat cells, permanently destroying them.
Using dual applicators that are strapped to the body, CoolSculpting emits intense cooling energy deep beneath your skin and into the fatty tissue of your problem areas, like the stomach or thighs. This cooling energy lowers the temperature of your fat cells until they are completely frozen and cannot survive.
Once the cells are frozen, your body sees them as waste products. Over the course of several weeks, they will be transported through the lymphatic system until they are removed from your body as natural waste.
How Long Does CoolSculpting Take?
The length of your CoolSculpting session will depend on the size and number of areas being treated. Larger areas or multiple treatment areas may take as long as one hour to treat, while small isolated areas can be completed in very brief sessions.
For example, CoolSculpting chin sessions can take as little as 15 to 20 minutes. After your session, you can return to your usual activity because there is no recovery period necessary after CoolSculpting treatment.
A full CoolSculpting treatment plan takes several weeks to complete because you’ll schedule multiple sessions per treatment site. Most people need three to four CoolSculpting sessions per area in order to see optimal results.
How Much Weight Can I Lose From CoolSculpting Treatment?
What is CoolSculpting like in terms of results? When looking into CoolSculpting belly treatment or other CoolSculpting services, most people want to know exactly how much weight they can lose.
The answer to this can be slightly complicated, as CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment. Instead, it is a fat reduction procedure that aims to contour the body. While weight loss and fat reduction might sound similar, these two types of procedures are very different in terms of outcome.
Weight loss procedures are designed to reduce weight in patients who are significantly overweight. They include bariatric procedures like gastric bypass surgery. These treatments encourage long-term weight loss after the recovery process.
Fat reduction treatments like CoolSculpting are meant to remove small volumes of fat from isolated areas of the body. When you have CoolSculpting performed, the procedure focuses on destroying fat cells in those specific areas.
This process does not significantly reduce your weight but instead sculpts a more appealing figure. While CoolSculpting is not a weight loss treatment, you may see a small difference in the number on your scale. Many patients see about 2 to 5 pounds of fat loss in the weeks following their treatment. Some patients see further weight loss if they continue their CoolSculpting sessions for several months.
The end result of CoolSculpting is anywhere between 20% and 80% fat reduction within each treatment area. What this looks like is a smaller waistline, more toned thighs and arms, or a sculpted and defined jawline. The outcome of your treatment will depend on your areas of concern and how many CoolSculpting sessions you attend for each area.
When Will I See My CoolSculpting Results?
Whether you lose 2 pounds or much more, it is important to note that you will not see your CoolSculpting results right away. While the fat cells are immediately frozen and destroyed, it will take several weeks to months to see your final outcome.
This is because the body’s natural waste removal process needs time to play out. Once your fat cells are frozen, they are moved through the lymphatic drainage system as waste material. They are later excreted from the body after several weeks of being filtered through your system.
If your excess fat is minimal, you may see your final outcome in as little as one to three months after starting treatment. Patients who have larger amounts of fat may need four to six months to see their final results.
