Does Coolsculpting Last Forever?

Tag Archives: CoolSculpting

How long does Coolsculpting last?

B&A-Mayoral-AB-3Set-24wk-3Q-LoResCoolSculpting has become increasingly accepted in recent years as one of the safest and most effective med spa body contouring treatments available to women as well as men. But many new patients may still have concerns regarding how effectively CoolSculpting can remove undesirable fatty deposits and whether the outcomes will sustain for a long time. CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, killing them at very low temperatures. This helps achieve body contouring results without the involvement of any incisions, cuts, needles, or medications. This innovative and entirely non-invasive procedure can cause some patients to question the sustainability of CoolSculpting outcomes. During the pre-treatment consultation, the treatment provider will inform the patients on all facets of CoolSculpting and explain the potential sustainability of the results to them. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by the prudent Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities in this part of SoCal.

Treatment Delivery

FDA-cleared CoolSculpting is a patented treatment that eliminates stubborn fat cells through its unique freezing technique. The patient will be comfortable and relaxed during the in-office treatment while the CoolSculpting applicator freezes the fat cells to their death in precise areas of the body. The time taken to complete one CoolSculpting med spa session is nearly 40 minutes with the latest applicators. This makes CoolSculpting an ideal treatment for professionals and busy moms. CoolSculpting does not involve downtime, and the patient can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment session.

Sustainable Outcomes

The cells frozen with CoolSculpting will slowly start crystallizing and die. Over the next few weeks, they will be removed from the body through its natural processes. Patients usually experience a visible difference in their body contours after just a single treatment. However, a progressive fat reduction will require multiple CoolSculpting sessions. A majority of patients can achieve around 20 percent fat reduction in the treatment areas. Patients typically enjoy optimal outcomes with CoolSculpting at around two to four months.

Permanent Fat Reduction

Harvard scientists developed the unique cooling process that is used in CoolSculpting. After the applicator exposes the fat cells to very low temperatures in a controlled manner, the fat cells freeze and slowly break down. Consequently, the patient loses fat in a natural manner. The dead fat cells are absorbed by the body due to natural metabolic processes. Adults are not capable of growing new fat cells. This implies that after the fat cells are removed with CoolSculpting, they cannot re-grow. This leads to a permanent reduction in fat as the fat cells are eliminated forever. But patients must understand that CoolSculpting cannot replace diet and exercise. The treatment eliminates only around 20 percent of the fat cells. The residual fat cells can still grow bigger and impact the contours of the body if the patient gains excessive weight. Therefore, patients should focus on remaining within their ideal weight range during CoolSculpting and after the treatment to enjoy its benefits for many years to come.

Get Rid of Fat on Your Thighs With Coolsculpting

B&A-Stevens-INTH-2Set-8wk-LoResCoolSculpting is an advanced med spa procedure that has received FDA-clearance for cosmetic body contouring. It is designed to provide non-surgical reduction of fat in particular areas of the body. In this process, the fat is frozen away with CoolSculpting’s unique process called cryolipolysis. Patients do not receive any cuts or incisions, and the procedure does not require any needles or medications, making CoolSculpting a safe and minimal risk procedure. Among the areas that CoolSculpting can successfully treat are the inner and outer thighs. CoolSculpting can provide these sites with a sleeker lower body appearance. In general, stubborn fat deposits usually develop in the thigh area. These deposits can be challenging to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. For patients seeking fat reduction in the inner and outer thighs, CoolSculpting can help. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides CoolSculpting to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

FDA-Cleared for Thigh Fat Reduction

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq received FDA-clearance in 2014 for the elimination of fat in the inner and outer thighs. Once this clearance was obtained, the manufacturer Zeltiq began promoting this procedure as an effective non-surgical solution for the removal of stubborn fatty deposits in the inner and outer thigh. Zeltiq stated that patients could achieve 20 to 25 percent reduction in fat deposits in the thighs within three months with this med spa treatment. During the trials by the FDA, almost 86 percent of patients reported a noticeable decrease in their thigh fat within a period of four months following the CoolSculpting treatment. The time taken for one CoolSculpting session is around 45 minutes. At a given time, one inner or outer thigh can receive treatment. The patient may require multiple treatment sessions to accomplish desired outcomes. An increasing number of patients nowadays seek the “thigh gap.” CoolSculpting is a popular treatment among people who want the appearance of a gap between their inner thighs. Both treatment providers and patients alike offer positive feedback for CoolSculpting as an effective nonsurgical treatment to address thigh fat. CoolSculpting delicately eliminates fat causing low to no downtime and discomfort unlike aggressive procedures such as liposuction or lasers.

How does it Work?

Fat cells located in the inner thighs, as well as other fat tissue sites, are more susceptible to damage at very low temperatures in comparison to other cells as well as nerves and blood vessels in the vicinity. CoolSculpting targets these cells precisely causing the selective elimination of undesirable fat cells through a process known as apoptosis. These dead fat cells will gradually break down and be absorbed by the body through the natural metabolic process. This enables the patient to enjoy sleeker, more youthful and natural looking inner and outer thighs.

CoolFit Applicator

The treatment provider generally uses a specialized CoolFit applicator to perform customized elimination of fat in the thighs. Some patients may need two applicators on each side according to the distribution of the fat. The treatment provider will usually place the second applicator toward the back of the inner thigh for overall contour enhancement.

Allergan, the manufacturer of CoolSculpting body contouring med spa treatment, has now received FDA clearance for CoolSculpting for the cosmetic treatment of lax tissue in the double chin. CoolSculpting is already a popular non-invasive treatment to reduce stubborn fat deposits in the submental area (below the chin), which give the appearance of a double chin. How long does Juvederm Vollure Filler Last? | Encino Medical Spa With the new FDA clearance for treatment of lax tissue, the fat tissue reduction in the double chin can be combined with tissue tightening to achieve more comprehensive aesthetic outcomes. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides the FDA cleared CoolSculpting body contouring and other treatments to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding locations.

Treating Submental Fat and Lax Tissue

According to David Nicholson, Chief R&D Officer at Allergan, the company is committed to advancing innovation for CoolSculpting to meet the needs of patients seeking non-invasive aesthetic treatments. Nicholson said: “A 2017 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) survey revealed that 73 percent of patients are bothered by excess fat under the chin. We are pleased this patient concern can successfully be addressed by CoolSculpting through a non-invasive approach, and furthermore improve the appearance of lax tissue in the treated area." A clinical study performed over 18 weeks to determine the effectiveness of CoolSculpting in submental fat treatment found that 77 percent of patients showed improved appearance of lax tissue and 75 percent of patients reported their chin looked more toned following treatment. Experts say that when CoolMini applicator from CoolSculpting is used to treat the fatty deposits in the double chin area, it also leads to noticeable improvement in the appearance of lax tissue. With the recent FDA clearance, this fact has now been officially validated. Double chin area is more difficult to treat with changes in lifestyle, diet and exercise. Therefore, the FDA clearance of CoolSculpting for the treatment of lax tissue in conjunction with submental fat assumes greater significance.

Double Chin Fat and Sagging Tissue are a Vital Concern

Cosmetic experts believe that patients are going to receive the dual treatment for this fat-freezing med spa procedure with enthusiasm. According to various reports, excessive submental fullness, (commonly known as a double chin), and sagging neck skin, rank among the top cosmetic concerns among patients. This observation matches with the figures released by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, or the ASDS, which reported that the number one concern (for the fourth consecutive) among patients is related to unwanted body fat. The ASDS study says that 85 percent of men and women considering cosmetic procedures reported being unhappy about the appearance of “excess fat on any part of the body.” More than 73 percent of the patients specifically reported being upset about excess fat under the chin. Apart from submental fullness, 60 percent of the patients said they are bothered by lax facial skin. Now with the latest FDA clearance, CoolSculpting can help patients get rid of both these concerns related to the chin and neck area.
