How much weight can you lose with CoolSculpting?

Losing weight can be a tough battle. Shedding excess fat from your body is even more challenging, which makes you annoyed. You fight with your body fat and hope it can be reduced after a while. However, the results rarely meet your expectations. Thankfully, advanced technology innovation finds effective ways to lose weight and fat. 

This article will provide an in-depth look at CoolSculpting, exploring how it can help you achieve your body contouring goals.

What Is CoolSculpting?

What Is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting also called cryolipolysis, is a technology-driven, non-surgical approach that helps you to reduce unwanted fat. Unlike liposuction, CoolSculpting does not require incisions or anesthesia, which makes it a popular noninvasive alternative. The method focuses on eliminating unwanted fat cells from certain body parts, such as the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. Through this body-countering treatment, your body fat can be reduced, and you can build a better body shape. 

How Much Does CoolSculpting Cost?

CoolSculpting is a cosmetic procedure known for its non-invasive reduction of fat in targeted areas. On average, you can expect a single CoolSculpting session to cost around $1,500, but it can range anywhere between $1,500 to $4,000, depending on the treatment area. For example, treating your abdomen might be on the higher end, while small areas like the chin typically cost less. These prices fluctuate based on geographic location, clinic, and the number of sessions required.

How Much weight can you lose through CoolSFculpting?

You will have realistic expectations for your weight loss treatment. However, you may be disappointed if you expect to lose more than 10 pounds of fat. It’s a method that reduces stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise and helps you to build a better shape for your body. After a single session, you can typically expect a 20-25% reduction of fat cells in the treated area. This percentage means you can lose approximately 2 to 5 pounds of fat, or you will maintain your weight but notice a reduction in body measurements rather than a significant change on the scale:

  • ½ inch to 3 inches: This is the potential range of size reduction you could see post-procedure.

 It doesn’t sound like much, but it’s enough to make your clothes go down the size one to three, or you’ll maintain your weight but be in better body shape.
The primary purpose of CoolSculpting Treatment is not to help you lose weight, it means significant results of weight loss in a short period is impossible. However, as a healthy way to fat loss,  it can still help you naturally lose both weight and fat gently to some extent. Besides, It’s important to note that while fat cells are removed, CoolSculpting is not a substitute for a healthy lifestyle.

Factors Influencing CoolSculpting Effectiveness

Several factors may affect the effectiveness of your CoolSculpting treatment:

  • Targeted Areas: Belly, thighs, and buttocks, are common areas for treatment, with variations in fat reduction.
  • Lifestyle: Achieve your desired results and maintain results post-treatment needs a healthy lifestyle. 
  • Age: Age can influence skin elasticity and may affect the visible contouring effects post-treatment.
  • Side Effects: Minimal side effects such as redness and numbness may occur but typically resolve within a few days.

 CoolSculpting is most effective for fat reduction in targeted areas and not for overall weight loss.

Before Treatment 

There’s no need to be overly anxious before undergoing a fat reduction treatment, you can do your daily activities as usual.

 Preparation is a minimal, simply schedule your initial consultation and provide information about any medications or substances you’re currently taking. 

The CoolSculpting Procedure Explained

To understand the potential of CoolSculpting for weight loss, it’s essential to explore the process behind it. This procedure is not about weight loss but reducing fat cells in targeted areas.

What Happens During a Session?

During a CoolSculpting treatment session, a gel pad and applicator are applied to your targeted area. The applicator delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells beneath the skin. Suction and vacuum mechanisms hold the tissue in place and create a sensation that may include pulling, tugging, and mild pinching. You might feel stinging, aching, or tingling as the cooling begins. These sensations typically subside as the area becomes numb.

What Happens During a Session?

After the Procedure: What are the Final Results?

Following your CoolSculpting treatment, you may experience side effects such as pain, swelling, bruising, redness, tingling, and sensitivity in the treated areas. These are temporary and usually resolve on their own. There’s typically no extended recovery time, and you can generally return to your normal activities right away. While you may not feel significant pain post-procedure, the treated skin can feel sore or numb for a few days. Results gradually become visible as the body naturally processes and eliminates the dead fat cells, often seen in as soon as three weeks but more typically in two months.

How to Manage Your Side Effects? 

  • Pain and Aching: You may feel pain or aching at the treatment site. Over-the-counter pain medication can help manage this discomfort.
  • Stinging and Tingling: These sensations typically resolve on their own shortly after the procedure.
  • Swelling and Bruising: Apply cold compresses and keep the area elevated to reduce swelling. Bruising will usually fade within a few weeks.
  • Redness: This is normal and should diminish within a few hours post-treatment.
  • Tenderness: Gentle handling and soft clothing can minimize discomfort.
  • Loose Skin: While not directly a side effect of CoolSculpting, the procedure might not tighten if you have pre-existing loose skin.

How long will the effects remain? 

The results of your treatment from CoolSculpting are considered permanent because the treated fat cells are eliminated. However, maintaining these results requires a stable weight, as weight gain can lead to remaining fat cells expanding. The longevity of the effects can be bolstered by adhering to a balanced diet and regular exercise.
