How Many CoolSculpting Treatments are Necessary?

Posted on October 8, 2019 under Plastic Surgery

CoolSculpting is a great option if you have a problem with stubborn fat that refuses to disappear through dieting and exercise alone. CoolSculpting is a cosmetic treatment that is non-invasive and highly successful at getting rid of pockets of stubborn fat on the body. The treatment involves freezing and destroying the fat cells, which are then naturally flushed out of the body. The end result is a slimmer contour. 

Choosing the Right Facility for Your CoolSculpting Treatment

If you are in or near the Naples, Florida area and want to give CoolSculpting a try, consider Basile Plastic Surgery. Founder, Dr. Andrea Basile, is a board-certified plastic surgeon who strives to provide his patients with the best quality aesthetic procedures to help them look great and feel better about themselves. He will happily answer all your questions and concerns about your treatment.

Getting the Best Results from Your Treatment

CoolSculpting treatment targets fat that bulges in a particular area of the body such as the abdomen, flanks, or thighs. A smaller applicator can also be used in more precise areas like under the chin, above the knee, and in the bra area.

CoolSculpting can give you quick results that are long-lasting. On average, you can find fat reduction results of up to 20-25% after optimal treatment sessions. Of course, everyone is different when it comes to their CoolSculpting results and many factors can contribute to its success. As a result, you should have a consultation with the doctor to determine the specific number of CoolSculpting treatments you might need to address the problem area or areas on your body. While you might notice results a few weeks after your treatment, you may have to wait up to two months to see the full results. For most patients, a series of 3-6 spaced-out treatment sessions are necessary for optimal contouring results. 

What to Expect During Treatment

CoolSculpting treatments are safe, but you still need to have a board-certified doctor who is experienced and specializes in CoolSculpting. Effective CoolSculpting requires precise cooling that is cold enough to destroy the fat cells, while avoiding damage to the surrounding skin and tissue. With CoolSculpting, you will have a gel pad and applicator placed on the treatment area. You might feel an intense cold sensation at first, but the area should quickly become numb for a comfortable treatment process.
