How long between fat-freezing sessions?

The short answer is that it depends on the person. The average pacing duration is between 3-6 weeks apart. However, it also depends on how your body responds to the treatments and how long it takes to process and remove the unwanted fat. Implementing healthy lifestyle (healthy diet and regular exercise) in between sessions will help you body heal more quickly for your second session.

You can treat multiple areas at a time to remove stubborn pockets of unwanted bulges at different body parts. However if you would like to treat the same area, you will need to wait a while before going for the second treatment.

If you have multiple coolsculpting sessions without spacing it apart, there is a chance that you will not see significant coolsculpting results, experience more discomfort and may have severe side effects . This is because your body needs time to recover before the next procedure.

Understanding how Coolsculpting procedure works would help you understand why you need to pace out multiple treatments at the same treated area. Fat freeze is a non-invasive treatment that helps remove the stubborn fat in body areas such as love handles and upper arms, or loose skin under the chin. Most people are satisfied with their results and consider it a way to boost their self esteem.

During this fat reduction treatment, cold temperatures are used to freeze fat cells causing fat cells death. The fat cells destroyed by the extreme cold temperature will be naturally removed from your body system within a few weeks. The death and removal of the damaged fat cells are what causes weight loss. Most coolsculpting patients would lose weight, notice results within 4 weeks of their first treatment and look forward to additional treatments at different treatment area.

For optimal results, we recommend waiting before your next treatment at the specific areas such that you give your body some recovery time and to do it's job in removing the fatty tissue, leaving behind healthy tissue and skin.
