Are there any studies to determine if patients who maintain better hydration see quicker results than those who do not?
Coolsculpting and Hydration For Quicker Results?

CoolSculpting doesn't require significant hydration to be effective
I am not aware of a study comparing the results of those patients who drink a lot of water versus those who don't, while responding to treatment from Zeltiq's CoolSculpting. Endermologie, which is a kneading and suction device, involves multiple treatments and significant water consumption. I'm not aware of a study that investigated the results of that treatment with patients who did not consume much water. CoolSculpting definitely works well for many of our patients and we do not tell them to consume large quantities of water.
Preparation before Coolsculpting
Adequate hydration may be important for treatment with radiofrequency device such as Exilis for fat contouring however probably does not make much of a difference for Coolsculpting. Regardless one should always be adequately hydrated.
