CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose: Is there a limit to number of treatments per area?

Posted by February 8th, 2022 in Face

If there’s one thing that CoolSculpting patients want to know, it’s how many sessions they can get per target area. Is there a limit to how many treatments is allowable for a specific treatment area, like the abdomen or flanks, for instance. At Rejuvé, a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose at our facility starts with a one-on-one consultation. This initial consultation is the perfect opportunity for the patient to learn everything there is to know about this fat removal treatment that uses advanced fat-freezing technology.

As for the number of sessions you can have per target area, here are a few things to know about the procedure:

1. Two or more sessions is the typical recommendation for each target area

In general, the number of sessions for a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose or other parts of Bay Area will depend on how much fat needs to be removed in order for the patient to achieve their desired results and reach their trimming goal. While a single treatment can already produce noticeable results, a second or third session may be needed for more dramatic results.

2. Spacing out treatments is required

The most common source of frustration for first-time patients is how long results become noticeable after their CoolSculpting treatment. Understand that CoolSculpting fat removal works in conjunction with the body’s natural processes, which basically means patients will have to wait for their bodies to naturally eliminate the targeted fat cells. And depending on each patient’s unique response to treatment, this can take anywhere from two to three months.

That said, it’s important that each session be spaced out if more than one is needed. You need to allow your body to naturally eliminate the targeted fat cells first before you can have the second treatment. Understandably, some patients are eager to achieve their desired results and reveal a stunning transformation as soon as possible. Doctors typically recommend waiting at least a month before the second session. But if you can wait a little longer (about four months), this is much better as you’d have given your body the time it needs to achieve optimal results from your first session.

3. There’s no limit but with conditions

There is no limit to a CoolSculpting procedure in San Jose or elsewhere patients can get for each target area, but certain conditions need to be met; foremost of which are those mentioned in Nos. 1 and 2. Ultimately, your doctor will be the one to determine how many sessions is needed, how many is enough for the time being, and how many you can undergo in the future.
