Does CoolSculpting® Work Long Term?
Are there certain places on your body where you wish you could just melt the fat away? Despite diet and exercise, many people experience frustration over certain areas of their body that seem completely unwilling to release those last few unwanted pounds. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, we understand how disheartening this can be. Especially if you have been on an extended weight loss journey, there is nothing worse than feeling as if you have hit a plateau. Fortunately, CoolSculpting® is here to help.
What is CoolSculpting®?
An innovative method that literally freezes away your stubborn, unwanted fat, CoolSculpting® has become a popular, non-invasive method to help individuals finally achieve the body of their dreams.
How Does It Work?
CoolSculpting® uses a patented method called Cryolipolysis to eliminate fat cells in targeted areas of the body. During a CoolSculpting® procedure, the treatment area is cooled until it reaches temperatures just above freezing. The fat cells in this area crystalize and die due to the temperature change. In the days and weeks that follow, these dead cells will be naturally eliminated from the body, leaving behind a leaner, trimmer figure.
In most cases, the best results are seen one to two months after the procedure. Generally, patients require three treatments, spread out over the course of nine to 12 months in order to see the fat loss they desire.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The best part of CoolSculpting® is that the results will last a lifetime. This is because, as adults, we do not produce new fat cells. When we gain weight, our fat cells simply expand. So by killing and flushing out the unwanted fat cells, you can rest assured that you will not gain weight in your target area again.
There is no need to feel self-conscious about your body anymore. The team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, led by Dr. Goldberg, is skilled at assisting individuals in the New York and New Jersey area banish unwanted fat from their bodies for good.
