How Long Does Body Contouring Last?

Targeting pockets of stubborn fat can be a frustrating task. Certain areas tend to hold onto fat no matter what you do. Whether that fat accumulates around your abdomen, thighs, or under your chin, body contouring with CoolSculpting® can help eliminate it. This non-invasive treatment removes unwanted fat with no incisions or recovery time. 

What is Body Contouring?

In the broadest sense, body contouring is any treatment that removes unwanted fat to sculpt and shape problem areas. This can include surgical procedures such as liposuction. CoolSculpting® is the most widely used and effective way to sculpt problem areas without invasive procedures. Your Twin Ports Dermatology team prefers this treatment as an effective way to shape and contour. Body contouring with CoolSculpting® slims targeted areas to help you achieve your desired figure.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work for Body Contouring?

CoolSculpting® is a form of body contouring that uses cryolipolysis, the process of damaging fat cells by freezing them. As the temperature gets colder, fat cells are affected, while other types of cells remain unharmed. Your body removes the damaged fat cells gradually via the lymphatic system. Since your skin cells are not harmed, CoolSculpting® requires none of the recovery time of surgical procedures. 

How Long Does Body Contouring Last?

The adult body does not produce new fat cells, so the ones removed with CoolSculpting® will not return. However, you will still have fat cells in the area, and these can store more fat. We recommend a healthy lifestyle to achieve the most long-lasting, consistent results. While your results may change over time, your slimmer figure can last a lifetime. Your Twin Ports Dermatology provider will discuss what you can expect during and after your session.

Is There Any Downtime After Body Contouring?

Body contouring with CoolSculpting® does not require any downtime. You can return to your usual activities immediately. Your skin may look red and feel sensitive for a few hours after treatment, but these should not affect your daily routine. Some people feel harmless, temporary numbness or tingling. You may also experience some temporary changes to the texture of the fat in the treated area as the body removes it. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Body Contouring?

Almost anyone can benefit from CoolSculpting® treatment. Good candidates are healthy adults with reasonable expectations. Candidates will see the greatest benefit if they are close to their goal weight and lead a healthy lifestyle. While noninvasive body contouring is effective for fat removal, it should not be considered a weight loss solution. Instead, it is used as a tool that helps you shape your most stubborn areas so you can achieve your goals.
