Is CoolSculpting® Permanent?

(And More Burning Questions You Want Answered)

Is CoolSculpting® permanent? 

Short answer: it can be! It’s wholly dependent on the individual. A great benefit of CoolSculpting® is that it requires little to no downtime however there are suggested ways to ensure the best results and the most long-lasting effect. If you start or continue a healthy lifestyle, try not to fluctuate weight too much, and don’t do anything that would greatly alter the body (invasive cosmetic surgery, or pregnancy, for example), it’s possible for the treatment’s results to last long-term.

How long does it take to see results of CoolSculpting®?

You may start to see changes as quickly as six to eight weeks after your treatment, and the full result should be seen after three months. Your body will still continue to eliminate the dead fat cells for up to 4 to 6 months after treatment. The Before & Afters Gallery shows what results look like several weeks after treatment. It’s also important to continue to live a healthy lifestyle for a holistic approach to your body sculpting results.

How long does a CoolSculpting® session take? 

Depending on the area, it can take from 35 minutes to an hour, and extra for a post-treatment massage.  You can go right back to normal life immediately afterward, so you don’t have to factor-in time for recovery.

How much does CoolSculpting® cost? 

Prices are dependent on the areas treated, how many areas treated, and the number of sessions required for the desired outcome. The best way to find out how much it will cost you specifically is to organise a consultation with a CoolSculpting® medical professional and discuss your ideal outcome and what it will take to get you there. 

How cold is CoolSculpting®

As the cooling begins, during the first few minutes, you typically feel intense cold. This should soon become bearable as the treated area numbs. And with some applicators, you’ll feel some pulling as suction is applied. CoolSculpting® technology delivers precisely-controlled cooling to target the fat cells underneath the skin, whilst leaving the skin itself unaffected.
