If you’ve been struggling to reduce a few areas of stubborn fat, CoolSculpting may be the ideal fix for you. CoolSculpting is an innovative fat reduction procedure that freezes away unwanted fat. One of the most common questions people have about the procedure is – How many CoolSculpting cycles do I need.
What areas can be treated with CoolSculpting?
CoolSculpting is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that is FDA approved for treating several areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, flanks, submental area, and back. CoolSculpting uses a system of controlled cooling to freeze and eliminate stubborn fat.
How Many Coolsculpting Cycles Do I Need?
A CoolSculpting cycle is basically a single treatment on a specific area. Depending on the size of the area, a treatment takes between 35 to 60 minutes to complete.
The number of cycles you need will depend on the number of areas being treated. The CoolSculpting applicator treats one portion of the body at a time, so an area like the flanks will require 2 cycles, one for each side, whereas, the submental area needs only one cycle.
The aesthetic results you desire will also impact the number of CoolSculpting cycles you need. A single CoolSculpting cycle reduces fat in the area by 20-25%, but if you would like more improvement, another session may be necessary. Physicians generally advise patients to wait until they see the final results before deciding if they want another treatment. It can take 2-3 months for optimal results to appear (click here to learn more).
