The results of your CoolSculpting treatment can take up to 3 months due to the time it takes your body to process the frozen fat cells in the treatment area. After your treatment, you may have some swelling, but this will subside within the following days and weeks after treatment. As time progresses, you will begin to notice your treatment area change shape and your clothes will even begin to fit better than before.
If you’re trying to slim down in time for a big event with CoolSculpting, it is important to allow for some time to achieve the final results. Don’t expect to drop a few pant sizes the day after your CoolSculpting procedure with Dr. Burgess. It will take some time for your body to absorb the frozen fat cells, but as long as you remain patient, CoolSculpting can provide you with life-changing results.
A single CoolSculpting treatment can eliminate up to 20 percent of the problem fat cells. Once they are gone, they’re gone for good. Just be sure to continue a healthy lifestyle of regular exercise and proper nutrition to avoid gaining new weight. There is no procedure that can be used as an alternative to diet and exercise.
The great thing about CoolSculpting is that there are very few risks or recovery time involved. Most patients are able to even come in for treatment during their lunch break and return to work after just one to two hours. You may experience some minor side effects such as redness or swelling, but nothing that should keep you laying at home on the couch.
CoolSculpting can help to bring out the washboard abs or that hourglass figure that is hiding behind those stubborn lumps and bumps of fat. Many of our Portland CoolSculpting patients feel more confident with their new bodies and are excited when that old shirt or dress that was once too tight now fits like a dream.
