Why Waiting in Between CoolSculpting Treatments is Important

Coolsculpting is touted as one of the most effective body sculpting procedures on the market. Without the need for surgery, needles, recovery time, or even anesthesia, CoolSculpting is helping thousands of Americans achieve the toned, slim, contoured physique they desire – and it can help you too!

Here, our certified experts at Etre Cosmetic Dermatology offer their knowledge on how to maximize your CoolSculpting results. The consensus is surprising yet straightforward – don’t go too often!

What is CoolSculpting?

In a nutshell, CoolSculpting is a revolutionary technology that supercools targeted areas of fat. The CoolSculpting device looks similar to a wand, which your specialist will use to freeze fat cells in particular bodily areas. 

Once the fat cells are super chilled, they die off. Over the days and weeks following your CoolSculpting treatment, the body naturally processes and eliminates these fat cells, revealing a more toned stomach, lower back, thigh, and more. 

Why Wait Between Sessions?

The beauty of CoolSculpting is that the procedure capitalizes on the body’s natural method of processing fat cells. 

After a single treatment, the treated area needs time to process the fat cells, remove them from the region, and naturally regain balance. This takes your body around thirty days, so the minimum amount of time to wait between treatments of the same area is a month. However, we recommend longer- around three to four months- before retreating the same body region. This is so you can practice proper nutrition and regular exercise to maintain your body shape, and not simply rely on CoolSculpting. 

By using CoolSculpting as a finishing-touch tool, two or three times a year to help shave away the stubborn pockets and layers of fat, you encourage the healthy lifestyle that is crucial to a sustainable, long-lasting, and pleasing physique. 

Treat Different Areas

Coolsculpting is effective at treating stubborn pockets of fat all over the body. Depending on the individual, patients may wish to manage their calves, thighs, hips, abdomen, lower back, chest, upper arms, or neck. 

Other procedures can sometimes be better suited at treating specific areas, such as Cellulaze for dimpled thighs or laser liposuction for the lower abdomen. Still, CoolSculpting is adequate for most body regions with fat deposits.

Many patients choose to treat multiple areas in a single CoolSculpting sitting. At the same time, some decide to split treatments into upper/lower body, or front/back, depending on their preference. 

It’s important to note that patients only need to wait between treating the same body areas – for instance, if you enjoyed the results from CoolSculpting on your thighs after fifteen days, there are no problems with getting your lower tummy done immediately. We only recommend waiting between treating the same body region to enjoy optimal results.
