How Soon Can I Get a Second Treatment?

If you are not familiar with CoolSculpting®, it is a process created by Zeltiq for removing fat in certain areas of the body.

Zeltiq is a medical technology company that has created a way to reduce fat cells by cooling them just enough. The cold temperatures kill fat cells, which are then carried away by the body. It is a revolutionary process that delivers results for far less discomfort, time, and recovery than other methods.

A common question we answer is this: how long you have to wait between CoolSculpting treatments of the same area? Is it even worth it? We all want maximum results without damage.

First of all, you need to make an appointment with our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to consult on exactly what you need. Each patient is different, and we are committed to tailoring our treatments to you. In the meantime, here are some general guidelines.

  • When you get a treatment, your body has an inflammatory response around the fat cells that ends up reducing and eliminating them. This process fully dissipates after two to three months, which is when you typically see results.

  • According to studies, if you get another treatment before the inflammation goes away completely, you can increase the response and the results.

  • In general, another treatment may be most effective at the one to two month mark.

At the end of the day, only our Dr. Schutte can give you a final answer, because he will know your goals and how to reach them. Contact us to make an appointment today.
