CoolSculpting® has quickly gained popularity as a non-surgical treatment option for stubborn body fat. The advanced CoolSculpting® Elite system uses cutting-edge technology to kill persistent fat cells through the process of cryolipolysis.
If you’re considering this as a way to eliminate fat that won’t go away, despite having a healthy diet and exercise, you may be wondering how many treatments you’ll need? We’ll give you an overview of the treatment and clearly outline how many sessions you’ll need to achieve your desired physique.
How Does It Work?
This technology is designed to eradicate stubborn fat cells without damaging the surface of the skin. Fat cells freeze at a higher temperature than skin cells which allows the CoolSculpting® applicator to destroy fat cells without harming the skin.
With the CoolSculpting® Elite treatment, the applicators are positioned on the treatment area and are set to the perfect temperature. Throughout the treatment, the cooling technology freezes and kills the fat cells beneath the skin. In the weeks following your treatment, your immune system will gradually process and naturally remove the dead fat cells.
Number of CoolSculpting® Treatments Needed
CoolSculpting® provides the treatment area with a 20% to 25% fat reduction per session. For many patients, a single session provides them with desired results; however, to achieve a higher percentage of fat reduction, you may opt to undergo additional treatments. Your provider will help you determine the right number of treatments and will help you achieve your goals.
As a non-invasive treatment method, CoolSculpting® requires no downtime, no anesthesia, and poses zero risk of infection. It’s cleared by the FDA as a safe and effective body contouring treatment for nine areas of the body, including:
- Under the chin
- Upper arms
- Bra line
- Under the buttocks
