How Long Should You Wait Before Your Next CoolSculpting Treatment?

Are you finding it difficult to shed those last few sections of unwanted belly fat or love handles? Well, since many people struggle with this problem, you are not alone! But now, there is a unique, revolutionary permanent fat loss procedure that eliminates fat by freezing it away called CoolSculpting.

As an FDA-approved, completely non-surgical method of permanently removing fat cells, it’s available from the experienced medical professionals at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa in Vernon Hills, IL.

Even better, aside from CoolScupting, ours is one of the few centers that also offers two additional body contouring technologies:

  • CoolMini: Treats submental fat under the chin, also known as a “double chin.”
  • DualSculpting: Treats excess fat bilaterally and simultaneously in areas such as the flank, love handles, arms, and thighs.

When Do Results Become Visible?

Before considering how long you should wait before your next CoolScupting session, let’s take a look at how long it takes to see the results of a typical treatment.

Generally, it takes about three weeks to begin seeing improvements after treatment. During this time, your body is recognizing cell damage and adjusting to the reduction in fat cells. As this process increases in pace, your results will continue to show for between two and four months. In total, you can expect to lose 20-25 percent of the fat cells from your treatment area.

How Long Should You Wait Between Sessions?

Like many people, you probably want to get rid of as much fat as possible as quickly as possible. And, yes, and you would also like to get a follow-up treatment as soon as possible. While this may be beneficial, it is important to space out the treatment sessions to not simply re-freeze already dead fat cells. By allowing the body time to remove the damaged fat cells, you are making sure that your future treatments will be more effective.

One to Four Months Average

The medical professionals at Ritacca Cosmetic Surgery & Medspa recommend a minimum wait time of 30 days before you have your next freezing session in the same treatment area. It is generally considered more effective to wait a little longer since the ideal results from treatment are usually seen around three months after the initial session.

Our Medical Staff Will Work With You

Because everyone is different, your treatment may be different from that of other patients. You may be advised to wait longer for your second or subsequent sessions, depending on their health or fat loss situations. Multiple treatments are generally beneficial for many patients, and our staff would be happy to work with you in setting up the ideal treatment schedule for you.
