When looking for a way to treat unwanted body fat, many people turn to CoolSculpting; one of the U.K.’s most popular, effective and safe, non-surgical procedures. However, a commonly asked question our team receives is ‘do you lose weight when you do CoolSculpting?’ Hence we put together this blog on CoolSculpting weight loss in order to shed some more light on the subject.
What is CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is the name of a non-surgical fat loss/fat freezing treatment. It isn’t necessarily a weight loss solution but it has been proven to be extremely effective in streamlining and sculpting certain areas of the body.
It is often the perfect fat reduction method for people who are in relatively good shape, but find it hard to reduce the fat in a few certain stubborn agreas, such as their abdomen, thighs, arms, or flanks.
How does CoolSculpting work?
CoolSculpting & weight loss are two phrases that are commonly regarded together but the treatment involves so much more than that. The treatment operates through the use of fat freezing technology.
As the fat cells in our bodies are more sensitive to cool temperatures than other cells, such as our skin or muscle cells, this can be used to trigger a certain reaction. Through the treatment, controlled and precise temperatures are applied to the skin, triggering the fat cells directly underneath to react and cause cell death.
This then means that after a CoolSculpting fat freezing treatment, the affected fat cells continue to die off. The dead fat cells are gradually processed and disposed of from the body, leaving a more sculpted and defined physique.
Do you lose weight when you do CoolSculpting?
Now, for the big question, how much weight loss can you expect with CoolSculpting?
When it comes to CoolSculpting and weight loss, you have to think of the difference between weight loss and fat reduction. CoolSculpting is a fat-reducing procedure that freezes fat cells away. This is not quite the same thing as weight loss. CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure, meaning that it actually reduces the number of fat cells from the body, not the size.
CoolSculpting will not change the fat cells in untreated areas, meaning that if your end goal is to drop 2 dress sizes, this might not be the ideal treatment for you..
For those undergoing this treatment, you should expect to lose between 20 and 40% of the fat cells in your targeted treatment area with CoolSculpting. It is important to keep in mind that every client and CoolSculpting treatment is unique, meaning that expected outcomes of each procedure will be different.
Broadly speaking though, you can expect to see changes as early as three weeks after your treatment, with the most dramatic results usually appearing after three months.
