If you’re considering CoolSculpting to help you achieve your ideal body, you may be wondering how many treatments you’ll need to see results. The answer depends on a few factors, including your goals, your starting point, and how your body responds to the procedure. In this second part of our article series, we’ll talk about what you can do to ensure your CoolSculpting treatment is a success. Read on!

How Do You Speed Up Your CoolSculpting Results?

There are several ways to speed up CoolSculpting results. First, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise. Eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly will help maximize your results and ensure that the fat cells that were frozen during the CoolSculpting process are eliminated from your body.

Additionally, you should avoid activities that can cause the treated area to become inflamed or irritated, such as vigorous exercise or exposure to extreme temperatures. Finally, you should follow your provider’s instructions for post-treatment care, such as avoiding massages, hot baths, and saunas. These measures can help to ensure that your CoolSculpting results are achieved as quickly as possible.

How to Prepare for a CoolSculpting Session 

Before having a CoolSculpting session, it is important to consult with a qualified provider to discuss your individual goals and any health concerns. During this consultation, you should also inform your provider of any medications you are taking, as some medications may interfere with the treatment.

It is also important to avoid any activities that can cause the treated area to become inflamed or irritated before and after the treatment, such as vigorous exercise or exposure to extreme temperatures. Additionally, you should avoid consuming alcohol and caffeine for at least 24 hours before the procedure.

Finally, you should make sure to wear comfortable clothing that can be easily removed and replaced, as the treatment requires the provider to access the treatment area. Following these steps will help to ensure that you have a successful CoolSculpting session.

Who Is and Isn’t a Good Candidate for a CoolSculpting Session? 

CoolSculpting is a safe and effective fat-reduction procedure for most healthy adults. Generally, good candidates for CoolSculpting are those who are within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight and have pockets of stubborn fat that have not responded to diet and exercise.

CoolSculpting is not recommended for those who are pregnant, have a weakened immune system, or have certain medical conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or kidney disease. Additionally, CoolSculpting is not a good option for individuals who are significantly overweight.

Your provider can help you determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. It is also important to discuss any medications that you are taking, as some medications may interfere with the treatment.


CoolSculpting is a great option for anyone looking to reduce stubborn fat in their body. The number of sessions needed varies from person to person, depending on the area of the body being treated, the amount of fat to be removed, and the desired outcome. 

Generally, most people will require one to three sessions of CoolSculpting to achieve their desired results. However, it is always best to consult with a certified CoolSculpting provider to determine the exact number of sessions needed for each individual. With the right provider and the right treatments, CoolSculpting can be an effective and safe way to reduce fat and achieve improved body contours.
