It’s a question, and assumption, that we see coming our way quite a lot. The aesthetic
benefits of CoolSculpting® are proven and certainly can contour targeted areas of those who have had the treatment. So, can CoolSculpting® actually help you lose weight?
The answer is no… however, it can change the shape of your body.
Wait… so how does it work then?
See, CoolSculpting® technology uses controlled cooling to a specified temperature to selectively target and destroy fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue with possible long-lasting results.But, due to its effective targeted nature, it’s not a solution for overall weight loss,and definitely does not purport to aid in the internal benefits associated with healthy weight loss.
Can I continue my health and fitness routine after CoolSculpting?
Absolutely! In fact, it is highly encouraged. It’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle as CoolSculpting® will not help you lose weight. The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-invasive, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately.
Should I opt for CoolSculpting® if I have been diagnosed with obesity?
We strongly suggest waiting until you have been given clearance by a medical professional that you are no longer clinically obese before looking to CoolSculpting® . It is a treatment that helps to contour your body and target stubborn1,18,14 areas of fat, so it’s not recommended for people who are needing to lose significant weight. Instead, hold out until your doctor gives the green light that you are sustaining a healthy and active lifestyle, and CoolSculpting® can then assist with hard-to-target areas.
Will I need to do CoolSculpting® again if I lose weight after the treatment?
Perhaps. It really depends on how much weight you lose and how that affects your body specifically. It could be that by losing weight you find there are other areas that need the attention of CoolSculpting® (like areas you may not have considered) or the fat in the more stubborn treatment areas isn’t moving as effectively as others with exercise alone, so may need a little more attention.
