What Fat Freeze Results To Expect After 1 Week & 1 Month Of Treatment
Fat freezing is a popular non-invasive fat reduction treatment commonly used to target areas like the inner thighs, upper arms, double chin and waist.
If you had a coolsculpting session or intend to have one, it is good to know what to expect in terms of process and results. In this blog, we will cover what fat freezing is, what happens after fat freeze (immediately, a week, a month) and what kind of results to expect.
What Is Fat Freeze?
Cryolipolysis, commonly referred to as fat freezing, is a nonsurgical fat reduction treatment that uses cold temperatures to reduce stubborn fat deposits in certain areas of the body. Fat-freezing treatments target subcutaneous fat, which is the fat under the skin. The procedure is designed to reduce localized fat deposits or fat bulges that do not respond to a healthy diet and exercise.
During the procedure, a membrane is laid on the area with unwanted fats. The applicator is placed on the membrane, it creates a suction pull and releases cold temperature to freeze fat cells. The dead fat cells then get flushed out of your system in standard natural ways, causing one to lose weight.

What Happens After Fat Freezing?
Right after your treatment, you might experience some light soreness, redness, bruising, swelling, tingling, or numbness in the treatment area. Your skin may feel somewhat sensitive as well. These side effects are all temporary and should go away soon - usually a few days to a week for bruises. With CoolSculpting there is no downtime so you can resume your regular activities immediately after your treatment session.
A week after
A week after your fat-freezing treatment, your bruises will start disappearing. However, some patients might still see swelling in the treated area. You might also observe diarrhea, excessive sweating, and urinating because your lymphatic system has already started draining dead fat cells. Although, these symptoms do not last and will be gone soon after the dead fat cells are completely drained out of your body.
A month after
Approximately one-month post-treatment is when you can start to see the initial results of fat freezing. Once the swelling has gone down, you'll be able to observe some changes as your body eliminates the fat cells. However, it's worth mentioning that these are just early results and there will be much more improvement in subsequent weeks.
When do our clients typically see the greatest results?
The optimal results are typically seen after 12 weeks post-treatment. The patient will usually observe a 20-25% fat reduction in the treated area. The satisfaction rate for this procedure is high with over 85% of patients being "very satisfied" with the results after 3 months.
Results may continue to improve in the following months as your body's lymphatic system continues to eliminate fat cells. As with any other cosmetic procedure, individual results may vary, so it is important to maintain realistic expectations and follow the advice of your healthcare provider.
It's also important to note that fat freezing is not a permanent solution for weight control and the results may vary depending on diet and lifestyle habits. To maintain long-term results, it's important to keep a healthy lifestyle such as eating a balanced diet and engaging in regular physical activity.
