How Long Does a CoolSculpting® Session Take?

Share This Post

Each body has its preferred way of storing fat. Those storage areas, whether around the abdomen, under the chin, or on the thighs, can hold onto their fat regardless of your healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting® eliminates this stubborn fat to let you enjoy the results of your efforts. This popular treatment lets you get treatment in an hour or less and return to your daily routine.

What is CoolSculpting® for Body Sculpting?

CoolSculpting® is a body sculpting treatment targeting fat cells in specific areas. It reduces the appearance of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise. Common treatment areas include the abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, upper arms, and double chin. CoolSculpting® is a non-invasive body contouring procedure that can help you achieve a slimmer and more defined figure.

How Does CoolSculpting® Work?

CoolSculpting® works by targeting fat cells in the treatment area and freezing them. The process, called cryolipolysis, works because fat cells are more sensitive to cold temperatures than other cells in the body. During the treatment, an applicator delivers controlled cooling to the fat cells. This cooling causes them to freeze and crystallize. They will eventually be flushed out of the body through the lymphatic system.

How Long Does a CoolSculpting® Session Take?

CoolSculpting® sessions typically take between 35 minutes to an hour per treatment area. However, this can vary depending on the size and number of the treatment areas. Most people report feeling a cold sensation during the first few minutes of the treatment, but the area becomes numb after a few minutes, making the treatment more comfortable. You may choose to read a book or watch a movie during the procedure.

What Results Will I See With CoolSculpting®?

You can expect a noticeable reduction in fat in the treated area in the weeks following CoolSculpting® treatment. Results develop gradually as the body filters away the damaged fat cells. Some see visible results as early as three weeks after treatment, with optimal results around two to three months after treatment. 

CoolSculpting® has been shown to reduce fat in the treated area by 20-25%. The amount of fat reduction can vary depending on the individual patient, the size of the area being treated, and the number of treatments they receive. Patients who maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly can expect long-term results from their CoolSculpting® treatment.

Is There Any Downtime With CoolSculpting®?

Non-invasive CoolSculpting® requires no downtime. You can return to normal activities immediately after your body sculpting treatment, including work and exercise. You may experience mild redness, swelling, or sensitivity in the treated area, but these typically resolve within a few days.
