How to Gauge Your CoolSculpting® Results

With any form of body contouring treatments, the first question many people have is how soon will they actually see results. If the procedure doesn’t provide immediate results, people often get impatient. This is the case with CoolSculpting. While Coolsculpting is a very effective body contouring treatment, the results are not immediate and can often lead many to question if the procedure was really effective. Here we take a closer look at noninvasive fat removal with CoolSculpting, when you can expect to see changes, and how you can track your results. 

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive treatment designed to address areas of stubborn fat. This procedure uses a fat removal technique that kills fat cells through cryolipolysis, or freezing. This process breaks down fat cells, allowing your body to naturally metabolize and remove them for good. CoolSculpting is a relatively quick, in-office procedure that requires no downtime, getting you back to your normal routine right away.

Seeing and Measuring Your Results

Unlike other treatment options, CoolSculpting results are not immediate. You will begin to see changes in two to three weeks after treatment, with results continuing to improve over time. While some areas can achieve full results with one treatment, larger areas of stubborn fat may require additional treatments, spaced out every 2 to 3 months in order to achieve your desired results. 

A good way to track and measure your results is to create a journal. Begin by entering a before-procedure measurement of the area you are having treated. Each week, take a new measurement so you can see just how much of a difference the treatments are creating. You may also want to consider taking pictures before the procedure and a new picture every week in order to visualize the changes.
