If you need a little help to get rid of those love handles, CoolSculpting may be the ideal treatment for you. CoolSculpting is a popular body contouring treatment that uses cold energy to destroy unwanted fat. But how exactly does CoolSculpting work and how many sessions will you need.
How CoolSculpting works
CoolSculpting is a non-surgical fat reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to target and freeze fat cells, without injuring the overlying skin. The cold causes the fat cells to crystallize and die, and the body naturally processes and expels them in the following weeks.
CoolSculpting is commonly used to treat the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and beneath the chin.
Will I need multiple CoolSculpting sessions?
The number of CoolSculpting sessions you need will depend on the number of areas being treated, as well as what you want to accomplish. Many people achieve their fat reduction goals in just one CoolSculpting treatment, but that may not be the case for everyone (click here to learn more).
A single session reduces fat in the treated area by up to 25%, so the reduction should be significant after one treatement. However, depending on the volume of fat present, you may wish to have additional sessions to achieve optimal outcomes.
It is best to schedule a consultation with a CoolSculpting provider to get a better idea of the actual number of treatments you will need.
When will I see results from CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting results are not immediate. While some initial changes may be seen after 3 weeks, it can take 2 months or more to see the optimal results.
