Does fat return after a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose or elsewhere?

Posted by February 15th, 2022 in Face

CoolSculpting fat removal treatment can effectively reduce fat in the target area/s by up to 20 to 30%. On average, patients can expect a 24% fat reduction. However, patients are reminded that a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose at Rejuvé (or other clinics in other parts of the country) isn’t a weight loss solution. Instead, it is a cosmetic treatment that is the perfect complement to your diet and exercise, where CoolSculpting eliminates stubborn fats that your healthy and active lifestyle cannot.

Does fat return after a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose or elsewhere?

This is a common concern of a lot of first-time patients. They naturally want to get the assurance that CoolSculpting works and is worth their time and resources. The good news is fats eliminated through a CoolSculpting treatment will not return; however, there is still the risk of gaining weight anew.

As mentioned above, CoolSculpting isn’t a weight loss solution. It is designed to remove stubborn fats in the abdomen, flanks, thighs, back, and under the chin, among others. That said, patients need to be at a healthy weight range to be considered for the procedure.

Maintain your weight to maintain results

Once stubborn fats are removed, you need only to keep doing what you’ve been doing before CoolSculpting to maintain your weight. On the other hand, if you haven’t really been active in keeping a healthy diet and exercising, you need to get started on this after your CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose at Rejuvé.

After your CoolSculpting treatment, there could still be remaining fat cells in the target area, although these are usually small in size, which is why they are hardly noticeable. However, if you don’t follow a healthy regimen, fat could accumulate again and these remaining fat cells could expand, making you regain weight.

CoolSculpting requires your commitment and cooperation

A healthy weight starts with a healthy lifestyle; healthy mind, body, and spirit. All these need to be in sync if one is to truly achieve a healthy and fit body. That said, patients are advised to break unhealthy habits and maintain a good diet and exercise regimen to prevent new fat from accumulating and thus prolonging their CoolSculpting results.

CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose: Key Things to Know About CoolSculpting and Your Skin

CoolSculpting is an effective treatment in reducing stubborn fats in certain parts of the body, primarily the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, and upper arms. Of the various concerns of first-time patients, the effects of a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose (or elsewhere) on the skin is on top of the list. To be more specific, they want to know if a CoolSculpting treatment damages the skin, especially from multiple treatment sessions.

That said, here are a few things to know about the effects of CoolSculpting on the skin:

1. CoolSculpting does not damage the skin

Patients are concerned that their skin might look either wrinkly or saggy from treatment, considering that fat has been removed from the target area/s. You’d be glad to know that a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose, or other parts of the country, will not damage your skin, particularly in the manner mentioned above.

However, if you have loose skin because of excessive weight loss, CoolSculpting will not improve this as it is not a treatment for skin laxity. Your doctor will discuss with you non-invasive options for tightening loose or sagging skin from weight loss.

2. You may experience redness during and after treatment

Since your skin was exposed to high cooling temperatures to freeze the targeted fat cells, you may notice that it has become red. This may persist for a few hours after treatment. You may also experience skin sensitivity, bruising, and/or swelling. These are also normal effects of the treatment, and they should resolve on their own after a few days or weeks. Your doctor will explain to you all side effects to expect from a CoolSculpting fat removal treatment. These, however, will naturally fade over time.

3. You may feel a pulling, pinching, or stinging sensation during treatment

As cool temperatures penetrate the skin to reach the targeted fat cells, you may feel your skin being pulled or tugged; or you may also feel a pinching/stinging sensation. These are normal effects of treatment, and when you start feeling any of these things, it means CoolSculpting is working.

If you need more information on CoolSculpting, particularly its effects on the skin, or you wish to find out if you’re the ideal candidate for this type of treatment, you may schedule a one-on-one consultation with Dr. John Tang. When you’re ready for a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose at Rejuvé, please feel free to call our clinic at (408) 740-5320.
