How many CoolSculpting sessions do I need

If you have stubborn fat bulges that won’t budge even though you eat properly and exercise regularly, CoolSculpting can help you get rid of that stubborn fat. But how many CoolSculpting sessions will you need to achieve your body contouring goals.

CoolSculpting fat reduction treatment

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses the principle of cryolipolysis (controlled cooling), to freeze and destroy unwanted fat. The targeted fat cells crystalize and die, and are expelled from the body over the following months.

How many CoolSculpting sessions do I need

Patients generally need 1-3 CoolSculpting sessions to achieve their body contouring goals. The exact number of treatments required will depend on the size of the problem area being treated, as well as the amount of fat you need reduced.

Most people only need one treatment to reduce stubborn fat bulges. If you need to treat a small area such as the submental area or upper arms, one treatment may be all you need. However, an additional CoolSculpting treatment may be required when a larger area is being treated.

CoolSculpting is a fat reduction procedure that is designed to reduce pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. It is not intended for weight loss. Therefore the best candidates should be near their ideal weight, with a few problem areas that need to get into shape. Candidates that are close to their goal weight typically only require 1-2 CoolSculpting sessions, because a single treatment reduces fat in the targeted area by 20-25%.
