How Long Does the CoolSculpting Procedure Take?
On average, it takes about one hour per area. An area is about the size of your hand, so CoolSculpting your arm may take about an hour, while your stomach may take two hours. Some offices have multiple machines, so this can reduce your procedure time.
How Many CoolSculpting Treatments Will I Need?
CoolSculpting removes 25% of the fat cells in the area per treatment. While you may be happy with just one treatment, many people opt for a second treatment to remove even more fat cells and improve their look. Because it takes 3–4 months for the CoolSculpting process to produce its full results, you may want to schedule another procedure at the four-month mark.
This will depend on your individual results. However, because the fat cells do not regenerate, you do not need to have CoolSculpting done on a regular basis. One or two treatments should be sufficient.
