How Many CoolSculpting Treatments Are Needed to See Results? – MD Aesthetica Houston

Since it was introduced several years ago, Coolsculpting at MD Aesthetica in Houston has taken off and helped thousands of people finally say good-bye to stubborn fat. Coolsculpting treatments work by freezing the fat in certain areas where the applicators are placed. Freezing the fat cells for up to an hour can destroy up to 15-20% of the cells within the treatment area. Your body then flushes out the dead cells away leaving you with a visibly slimmer surface.

One of the most common questions during consults at MD Aesthetica is “How many Coolsculpting treatments will I need?” The answer is variable and depends on several factors such as timeframe, desired results, physical shape and area size, and the fat density.

CoolSculpting Treatment Areas

A large factor that determines how many treatments you will end up needing is how many areas you would like to treat. Since CoolSculpting uses special applicators for different areas, the size of the applicator varies based on the size of the treatment area. Take for example, the CoolMini applicator works best on the chin area to reduce double chins and as a result is small and curved to fit the contours of the chin area. Larger applicators work on bigger areas, like the abdomen and thighs. The stomach/abdomen, love handles/flanks, back, bra area, thighs, male chest, and under the neck are all areas the we can treat with CoolSculpting at MD Aesthetica.

Many practices in Houston just offer just a single applicator or machine, which really limits the areas you can treat and adds a lot of time to the treatment. MD Aesthetica is #1 for CoolSculpting in Houston & The Woodlands and has 4 CoolSculpting systems with the latest applicators with more machines and applicators on order. For this reason MD Aesthetica can Dualsculpt and treat patients faster than anyone else in Houston.

Depending on the number of areas you want to treat and the number of machines available that particular day, you can either be facing a single Coolscupting treatment session or a series of two, three or even more.

How Many Coolsculpting Treatments Does Each Area Need

The initial results you get from your first Coolsculpting treatment will influence the number of treatments you end up needing. We typically see that CoolSculpting treatments reduce the amount of fat in the area by 20 to 25 percent. If you’d like to see greater improvement, you’ll probably benefit from two or more treatments in the same area.

Waiting for CoolSculpting Results?

Although CoolSculpting is a quick non-invasive procedure, it does not provide instant results. Although you might begin to notice a reduction in fat in the treated area after a few weeks, it can take as long as three  months before you see the full and final results from treatment. This is all dependent on how quickly your body metabolizes the fat cells and flushes them away. Some people do this rather quickly. Other people’s bodies take their time.

Things to Remember Before Coolsculpting

One of the most important things to remember about Coolsculpting is that it is not a large weight loss procedure. Each Coolsculpting treatment can remove up to 25 percent of fat from an area. If you are many pounds overweight, a 25 percent reduction in fat in a single area won’t make much of a difference on the scale. We typically recommend if you have extra pounds to consult us over one of MD Aesthetica’s wellness weight loss programs prior to CoolSculpting. Combined we have seen amazing results!
