How Many CoolSculpting® Sessions Do I Need?

Are you frustrated with stubborn fat but not ready to consider invasive procedures? See the results you want with CoolSculpting®. This effective body contouring treatment can help you achieve a slimmer, more sculpted figure and reduce your most challenging fat. 

What is CoolSculpting®?

CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body sculpting treatment. It uses cold temperatures to break up fat cells without harming the skin. If you find that certain pockets of fat will not budge, CoolSculpting® offers significant improvement in difficult areas such as the abdomen, thighs, back, and under the chin.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® works because fat cells will freeze at temperatures that are harmless to the skin. Freezing fat cells, a process called cryolipolysis, causes them to break apart. Your body’s lymphatic system filters the damaged cells away to be cleared from the body. Skin, muscle, and other tissues remain completely safe at the temperatures used to freeze fat. You can return to your usual activities after your session. 

How Many CoolSculpting® Sessions Do I Need?

The number of CoolSculpting® sessions you need depends on the amount of fat in the target area, how your body responds to treatment, and whether you want another treatment to improve your results. Many people are satisfied after only one CoolSculpting® treatment. Others will need two or (rarely) three sessions to achieve their desired results. Dr. Dohner will develop a treatment plan and advise you on how many sessions you may require. 

How Much Does CoolSculpting® Cost?

CoolSculpting® costs vary depending on where you live and the provider you choose. CoolSculpting® treatment costs usually range from $2,000 to $5,000. You may need more than one treatment, so your total cost may be higher. We recommend a consultation with Dr. Dohner to determine what you can realistically expect.

What Results Will I See With CoolSculpting®?

Your results will take up to three months to develop completely. Most people start to see results after about four weeks. Each CoolSculpting® treatment removes up to 25% of the fat from each treated area, providing visible fat reduction, slimming, and sculpting. Removed fat cells will not grow back, so your CoolSculpting® results last as long as your weight remains consistent. 

Am I a Good Candidate for CoolSculpting®?

Almost anyone makes a good candidate for CoolSculpting®. Those who benefit most from the procedure are close to their goal weight and want to target problem areas. CoolSculpting® is safe for all skin types. You might not be a good candidate if you have an active skin condition or certain medical issues.
