If you are interested in non-invasive fat reduction, chances are you’ve heard of CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is an innovative fat reduction procedure that freezes and kills fat cells to slim and contour the body. But how does the procedure remove stubborn fat, and how many CoolSculpting treatments do you need.
How does CoolSculpting Work?
CoolSculpting uses controlled cooling to target and freezes unwanted fat cells, which are crystallized and destroyed. The dead fat cells are naturally processed out of the body over the following weeks.
Patients will notice some fat reduction about 3 weeks after treatment, but it typically takes 3 months to see maximum results.
How many CoolSculpting treatments do I need?
CoolSculpting reduces fat in the targeted area by 20-25%, and most patients need just one treatment to get the results they want. However, the number of CoolSculpting sessions needed may vary based on the areas to be treated, and the patient’s aesthetic goals.
CoolSculpting is ideal for men and women that are near their goal weight, as they typically need to undergo only one cycle of CoolSculpting to see optimal results.
CoolSculpting is an effective way to reduce small isolated pockets of fat. It is not designed for weight loss and is therefore not recommended for people that are obese.
What areas can be reduced with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting targets stubborn fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, inner and outer thighs, and submental area (below the chin).
