How Many Coolsculpting Cycles Will I Need?

CoolSculpting is a popular fat reduction treatment that has helped millions of people trim stubborn fat bulges and achieve a more sculpted body.  But people interested in the procedure typically ask the question – How many CoolSculpting cycles will I need.

What Is A CoolSculpting Cycle?

A CoolSculpting cycle is a single application of the CoolSculpting device on a specific part of the body.  A CoolSculpting cycle can take 35-45 minutes depending on the area being treated.

How Many CoolSculpting Cycles Will I Need?

Most patients achieve their desired results after just one CoolSculpting cycle.  A single CoolSculpting treatment reduces fat in the targeted area by 20-25%, and this is typically all that’s needed to achieve the desired outcome.  However, some patients may not get the results they’re after with one treatment, so they decide to have an additional cycle in the same area for greater improvement. 

The results of CoolSculpting are not immediate because the body takes several weeks to process and expel the treated fat cells.  Consequently, patients are typically advised to wait until they see the final results before deciding if they would like to undergo another CoolSculpting treatment.  It can take up to 4 months to see the final results.

Am I A Good Candidate For CoolSculpting?

If you have stubborn pockets of diet-resistant fat that you would like to get rid of, you may be a good candidate for CoolSculpting.  You should also be in good health and have realistic expectations about the procedure.   

What Areas Can CoolSculpting Treat?

CoolSculpting can be used to remove areas of fat on the upper arms, abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, above the knees, and below the chin.
