Will My CoolSculpting® Results Be Noticeable Right Away?

By: Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology


CoolSculpting is an exciting and innovative procedure that our team at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology is proud to offer to our patients in San Francisco, CA. With CoolSculpting, you can freeze stubborn body fat that you might struggle to lose.

This noninvasive procedure involves freezing unwanted fat cells through cryolipolysis, where adipose tissue is cooled to trigger lipolysis in the area, helping to break down fat cells. The practice safely removes fat tissues without dieting or exercising, and doesn’t harm any healthy tissues around your body.

You may be curious about how well the procedure works for stubborn pockets of fat on your body, including the abdomen, chin, thighs, and arms, and when you will start to experience the amazing results. While you may not see the results of the CoolSculpting process right away, you will begin to see the dramatic fat reduction effects after a few treatments.

How many CoolSculpting treatments will I need?

We design treatment plans to give the maximum results with as few applications as possible. To achieve the best results possible, you may require multiple CoolSculpting sessions (around 2 – 4 treatments in some situations) with a few weeks between each treatment. The specific coverage you’ll require will vary by situation, so schedule a consultation with us at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology in San Francisco, CA to see how you can best benefit from the process. Some people may require only one treatment, although that is more for the less intensive fat-burning needs you might have.

When can I see my results?

You’ll start to notice the full results of the CoolSculpting process in about 2 – 3 months following your treatment. The time frame allows the fat tissue to burn off and to be gradually removed from the body. The process allows for a more natural and holistic approach to managing your fat without any undue stress on your body.

You may notice some effects in less than a month, although those changes won’t be as dramatic as what you will find as the months progress. We tell our patients that beauty sculpting does take time, but you’ll start to see improvements as you start to recover.

Are there any side effects to CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a noninvasive procedure with no surgery required, but you may experience some swelling, redness, bruising and slight discomfort in the treatment areas. There is no downtime involved in CoolSculpting, so you can resume normal activities as soon as you are through with your appointment. You’ll appreciate the ease of the treatment process and how convenient CoolSculpting can fit into your busy schedule.
