How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Do I Need?

Posted on February 13, 2022

Are you putting in the necessary time exercising your body and following a balanced diet, but just can’t seem to get rid of those last few bulges? If so, CoolSculpting is a fantastic solution! This noninvasive treatment eliminates unwanted pockets of fat for a slimmer, more confident you. However, before booking your CoolSculpting appointment, it is important to understand the treatment and how many sessions will be needed to obtain your desired result. Read on to learn more!

How Does CoolSculpting Work?

CoolSculpting uses cooling technology called cryolipolysis to freeze stubborn fat cells, destroying them for good. Your body then naturally metabolizes and eliminates the dead fat cells. Because the fat cells are actually eliminated, this means that they cannot grow back, and results are long-lasting.

This treatment is often considered a noninvasive alternative to liposuction. While CoolSculpting can reduce fat in the treated area by up to 25%, it is important to understand that results will not match those of liposuction. However, CoolSculpting does not require the extended downtime that liposuction does.

Following a CoolSculpting treatment, patients can begin to notice results within a few weeks, though full-fat reduction will be seen after about four months.

How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Do I Need?

CoolSculpting can be used to eliminate stubborn fat on many areas of the body, including the inner and outer thighs, flanks, lower back, calves, and upper arms. Each unique treatment area may require a different number of sessions to achieve the desired results. For example, while one treatment session may be sufficient to treat your upper arms, you may need a series of treatments for your thighs.

The best way to determine the number of treatment sessions needed to achieve your aesthetic goals is to schedule a consultation appointment at our office today. We will speak with you regarding the areas you wish to address and create a personalized treatment plan for you.

How Often Can I Receive Treatments?

On average, patients should wait at least one month to undergo another CoolSculpting session. This is because your body will need some time to eliminate fat cells from the first treatment so that you can gauge where you are before your next treatment.

Is CoolSculpting Right for Me?

If you are a healthy adult who is interested in eliminating stubborn pockets of fat for good, CoolSculpting may be right for you. However, it is important to understand that, while CoolSculpting can remove smaller pockets of fat, it is not a weight-loss procedure.
