How long does the coolsculpting procedure last and how many treaments are needed??? I'm interested on having it done on my stomach. Thank you
Coolscuplting takes only one hour to reduce your fat bulge
Zeltiq is a revolutionary procedure that freezes your fat in just one hour. The results are great if you are at your ideal body weight and you have a certain problem area like your abdomen or flanks. Typically one procedure is necessary and you can expect a 25 percent reduction in fat in two to four months after the treatment. Some patients return a few months later for a second session because they can achieve even better results,
CoolSculpting treatments for fat reduction
The fat cells that are killed during the Zeltiq's CoolSculpting freezing do not grow back. But not all fat cells die and if you gain weight then the fat will have some place to go, both in the area treated and non-treated areas. But if you maintain a good exercise regimen and diet then the results should be long term. Some people need only one treatment as they're happy with 20% fat reduction while others do three or more treatments that can be repeated every two months or less frequently.

CoolSculpting permanently removes fat in one hour
One CoolSculpting treatment takes one hour per area treated. One area is typically about the size of your hand. Therefore, each "love-handle" would be considered one area, and the lower abdomen is typically considered two areas. You can treat more than one area at a single office visit, but only one area at a time. To treat two areas takes just over two hours. For many patients, a second treatment in the same area may be beneficial since CoolSculpting removes about 25% of the fat cells per treatment. The fat cells that are damaged by the treatment are frozen and later absorbed by the body's own metabolic process and are gone permanently. Typical results take about 3-4 months to be fully realized, and therefore many patients schedule second treatments at that time. Results may vary from patient to patient, overall, my patients have been very happy with their results.
CoolSculpting Can Be Permanent
Coolsculpting (Zeltiq) kills fat cells by selectively freezing the lipids that are found in fat cells. This results in gradual death of those cells and the fat they are carrying is absorbed and excreted. The procedure kills a layer of fat that is about ½ inch thickness at its maximum in the center of the bulge that is treated. Multiple areas can be treated, resulting in gradual reduction of a larger area . Once the fat cells are killed they are gone. The only reason they would re-appear is if you gained a large amount of weight and your body had to make some new fat cells in order to store the new fat. Otherwise, they are gone “forever.“
Does CoolSculpting really work?
YES! We love the results we are seeing. Every person is different. Therefor we customize plans to each patient. Some people depending how close you are to your ideal body weight will need more then one treatment to get desirable results. Each treatment takes one hour. You can knock it all out in one day or come back within 30 days to finish your package. We then take pictures at 60 days out and 90 days out. Hopefully this answers your questions.
Coolsculpting - each cycle lasts 1 hour and you see results after each treatment
A coolsculpting treatment session lasts about 1 hour. One body part (eg upper abdomen or lower abdomen or one flank or one love handle) can be treated during each hour-long session. About 20-25% of the fat that gets sucked into the probe disappears within 2-4 months. A repeat session can enhance results on a body part that you have already done. This is safe, but I recommend waiting several months so that you first see the full effect of the prior treatment.
Zeltiq-cool sculpting is effective
A normal treatment with Zeltiq takes approximately one hour. It requires only the one treatment. however a patient may want more than the 20-25% improvement normally attained in one treatment and can therefore sign up for a second treatment. One doctor in our practice noticed a very dramatic improvement in only one treatment when applied to her.

CoolSculpting Reduces Fat Permanently
Coolsculpting is a way to PERMANENTLY reduce fat - therefore whatever fat responded to the treatment is gone for good. (On average you can expect a 20-25% reduction of fat during any given treatment. A second or third treatment in a particular area can have an additive effect and better results. We always recommend 2-3 treatments for all of our Zeltiq patients. We have 4 machines and frequently run 2 or 3 at the same time. We can do 4 cycles in one hour.

How long does Coolsculpting last?
Each session with an applicator lasts for one hour. Most patients require two or more sessions. There is an approximately 25% reduction of fat cells in the area treated each session. That reduction in fat cells is permanent. Additional reduction in fat cells can be achieved with additional Coolsculpting sessions to the previously treated area. However, remaining fat cells can enlarge with future weight can.
The number of sessions needed to achieve the best shape change will be determined at your consultation.
