Staying slim after Coolsculpting in NYC: Maintaining your results

Coolsculpting is a popular, noninvasive fat reduction procedure, available at The New York Aesthetic Consultants LLP in NYC. Unlike many body-sculpting techniques that use heat to melt fat, Coolsculpting uses low temperatures to destroy fat cells. The result is a more attractive body shape with unsightly bulges reduced or eliminated. Coolsculpting may be performed alone for body shape improvement, or it may be incorporated into a multi-faceted treatment plan, addressing multiple aesthetic issues.

This is a gentle, nonsurgical procedure, which is safe and effective for most patients. However, it is not a replacement for diet and exercise, nor is it a solution to obesity. It is an excellent solution for stubborn bulges, which do not respond to standard weight loss methods.

Short-term results

A Coolsculpting procedure takes approximately one hour, per applicator, with virtually no downtime. You will be able to return to normal activities immediately. There may be slight redness or bruising at the treatment site, which should resolve quickly. The results continue developing over the next several months as the destroyed fat cells are eliminated by your body.

Coolsculpting can achieve long-lasting fat reduction and body sculpting. Patients often experience an improvement of up to 20 percent after a single visit, although each person responds to a given treatment differently, so results will vary. A series of treatments, usually spaced a few weeks apart, can increase the amount of fat reduction.

Long-term results

Research indicates fat cells that have been destroyed by Coolsculpting will not return. However, it is important to remember that the procedure only eliminates less than one quarter of the fat cells in a treated area. The remaining cells have the potential to take on more fat if you gain weight in the future, as will fat cells in other areas. The best way to maintain your lovely new shape for life is to live an active lifestyle and maintain your current weight.
