How many CoolSculpting cycles will I need

If you need to get rid of unwanted fat bulges in areas like the abdomen, flanks or thighs, CoolSculpting may be the ideal solution for you. CoolSculpting is an innovative body contouring system that freezes away stubborn fat.  However, before starting treatment, it would be helpful to find out how many CoolSculpting cycles you will need.  

What exactly is a CoolSculpting Cycle?

A CoolSculpting cycle is basically a 45 minute treatment on a specific part of the body.  The CoolSculpting system has one applicator that treats one area per cycle.  Therefore treating the arms would require 2 cycles, one for each arm. 

How Many Coolsculpting Cycles Do I Need?

It typically takes only one CoolSculpting cycle to achieve optimal results, but this can vary depending on your aesthetic goals.  After a single CoolSculpting treatment, most patients experience fat reduction of 20-25% in the treated area.  However, if you would like to see additional improvement, another CoolSculpting cycle can be performed (learn more).

The results of CoolSculpting can be seen after 1-3 months, so it’s best to await the final results before making the decision to undergo another treatment.

How CoolSculpting reduces fat

The CoolSculpting applicator delivers precisely controlled cooling to the fat cells in the treatment area, without affecting the surface skin and surrounding tissue.    The cold temperatures freeze the fat cells, causing them to crystallize and die.  The fat cells are then naturally removed from the body over the following months (read more).
