How long does it take to see results from Coolsculpting?

How long does it take to see results from Coolsculpting? Will I definitely need more than 1 treatment or will I see results immediately? I want to make sure the procedure works, but I don’t want to have to keep returning to the doctor over and over again.

The non-invasive fat-freezing technique utilises a process as cryolipolysis: the fat cells in your body are known to freeze at a different temperature to other, healthy cells. The body’s natural processes then break down and eliminate the fat cells over the next few weeks and months. Coolsculpting does not work instantly: it can take four to six weeks before results begin to be seen, and it may be up to three months before the maximum effect is seen. Approximately 20-25% of fat cells in the area are killed with each cycle of treatment, so many clients may wish to have a number of treatment cycles to the same area, spaced at a few months apart, to maximise the treatment effect. I would recommend having an assessment with a Coolsculpting professional to discuss your treatment goals and the likely number of cycles required.
