Coolsculpting has been instrumental in helping hundreds of thousands of people get rid of their stubborn fat deposits. This treatment freezes the fat in specific areas. Fat cells die when exposed to very low temperatures for up to one hour.
The body then absorbs these disintegrated fat cells in a natural process giving the patient a slimmer, more youthful appearance.
A question that patients frequently ask about Coolsculpting is how many treatment sessions that they will need. The treatment sessions necessary to achieve desired results vary between patients. Most individuals require multiple treatment sessions before attaining their body goals, but a few may manage to lose fat considerably in a single sitting.
Devoted board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides CoolSculpting to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles CA, and surrounding communities and suburbs in The Golden State.
Length of a Treatment Session
The CoolSculpting treatment provider will help the patient develop a treatment plan customized to their specific goals. The duration of the CoolSculpting treatment differs with the number of treatment areas being addressed in the session.
A treatment session with the most recent CoolSculpting technology takes nearly 35 to 60 minutes. Certain patients receive treatment in more than one body area in the same session. At some practices, providers use multiple CoolSculpting systems and applicators.
This enables the patient to receive treatment in multiple areas at one time. The patient, in consultation with the CoolSculpting treatment provider, may set up future appointments to meet their desired goals.
The number of areas being treated will determine the number of treatment sessions a patient will need. CoolSculpting is performed using applicators. These attach to the treatment area via gentle suction. For instance, the Cool Mini applicator is effective on the chin region and helps eliminate submental fat which causes the appearance of a double chin.
For areas such as the abdomen and thighs, larger applicators are available. The number of treatment sessions will depend on the number of treatment sites and machines available. This means that the patient may receive the entire treatment in a single Coolsculpting session or undergo multiple sessions.
Coolsculpting Treatment Sessions Required for Each Site
The outcomes of the initial Coolsculpting affect the number of treatment sessions that a patient may need. A single Coolsculpting treatment session typically eliminates 20 to 25 percent fat in the treated area.
For more significant improvements, the patient may require two or more treatments in the same location.
The number of treatments a patient will require is unclear before the procedure commences. Many surgeons take a wait and watch approach. They will usually ask the patient to wait until the results establish before making a decision on undergoing further treatment or not.
Waiting for the Final Outcomes
At the end of four months, the patient should ideally visit the surgeon for an assessment of the results. The patient will not require any further treatments if they are satisfied with the final results, their clothes fit better, and they feel more confident.
