You’re definitely interested in CoolSculpting – but you’re not so interested in taking up a lot of your day to get it done. That’s why you’re interested in knowing how long it takes to get CoolSculpting, including how many total sessions you’ll need to see the results you want.

Fortunately, we’ve got answers on your biggest questions, including: “How long does it take to get CoolSculpting?”

The Length of a CoolSculpting Session

On average, CoolSculpting sessions can last anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the area that’s being treated. Keep in mind that this time is for one treatment area; if you want to treat multiple areas, your procedure time will increase.

How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Will I Need?

Each patient is different, so the final number of CoolSculpting sessions you may need will depend on several factors, including:

  • The treatment area
  • The density of fat in the treatment area
  • Your body’s response to CoolSculpting
  • Your lifestyle

In general, most people only need about 3 to 5 CoolSculpting sessions to see their ideal results. Keep in mind that this body contouring treatment is not a permanent solution, so it’s important for patients to continue following a healthy lifestyle in order to keep new fat cells from forming.

How to Prepare for a CoolSculpting Session

The best way to prepare for a CoolSculpting session is to drink plenty of water beforehand so you’re able to flush out treated fat cells after the procedure. You should also avoid wearing lotions or any other topical solutions on the treatment area.

Since CoolSculpting can take up to an hour, we usually recommend that patients bring their phones, a book, or anything else that may take up their time. Some patients even grab the opportunity to get a little shut-eye – now that’s the best kind of multi-tasking!

I have consulted with many surgery centers over the past decade, from the Bay Area to LA, never have I found a team of professionals that I’ve liked more than the Plastic Surgery Center! Dr. Coscia is amazing (skill and personality)! I couldn’t be more happy with my results!
