You may start to see changes as quickly as three weeks after your treatment, and will experience the most dramatic results after two months. But your body will still flush out fat cells and continues doing so for up to four to six months after treatment.
How Many Months Will It Take to See Results from Coolsculpting?
Doctor Answers (9)
Coolsculpting fat reduction takes 2-4 months
It takes 2 months to see results from Coolsculpting. Many patients experience continued improvement for an additional 2 months.
Most of our patients show 80% of their results by 2 months after treatment and will continue to see results over the next 2-3 months. Coolsculpting works great in the properly selected patients.

Results from CoolSculpting
Some patients have seen results as early as one month but most people see optimum results in 10 to 12 weeks. CoolSculpting reduces the subcutaneous fat layer. Most people if they are within 15 pounds of their ideal weight just need one treatment. CoolSculpting is fat reduction not weight loss. It is ideal for diet and exercise resistant bulges.

Results from Coolsculpting may be seen as early as 3 weeks, and peak at 3 months.
Results from Coolsculpting may be seen as early as 3 weeks, and peak at 3 months. A large number of my patients have needed only one treatment to achieve the fatty layer reduction that they sought. In these cases, I bring them for follow pictures at 2 to 3 months post treatment, to make sure maximum results have been achieved. However, if a patient has a larger fatty layer/bulge, that I estimate will require two treatments, I perform the second CoolSculpting treatment one month after the first one, and then wait two or three months after the second treatment to see the final result. Some patients in my practice have required a third treatment, because they had a very large localized area of excess fatty tissue, like a large belly pouch. All have been excited about the positive results. I agree with the previous comments by my colleagues regarding the fact that the appropriate selection of patients and management of expectations is the key to a very satisfying and effective! Coolsculpting experience.

How long does it take to see CoolSculpting results?
There are some patients that can see results as early as three weeks but in most will take two months to show the majority of the results. Studies have also showed that patients can continue to shed fat for up to four months after treatment.
Thank you for your question.
Each patient is different in regards to seeing results with Coolsculpting. On average, a patient will get 2 treatments 8 weeks apart but most will see a difference after the first treatment. The most important thing with Coolsculpting is for the patient to have realistic expectations and to understand that it will not be the same results as liposuction surgery.
The fact that this is a non-invasive procedure with NO down town with 20-25% reduction of fat in the areas treated is what many patients LOVE!

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq reduces fat volume significantly by the fourth month
20% of fat volume has been shown to be reduced after CoolSculpting by Zeltiq when studied by ultrasound measurements at four months, however some is already reduced at one month and more occurs, after four months. Some patients have less improvment than others, and other patients have much more. Many pateints will feel much more comfortable in clothing even if they don't see an obvious difference. There are times that the photographs show a significant fat reduction even though the individual didn't see the big difference because they live with their body every day and don't perceive the daily change. For a no-downtime procedure with minimal risks, this can be a great treatment for many patients provided they understand that it can not be expected to give the same volume reduction as liposuction. I have had pateints, though, who had nominal improvement after one treatment but then lost considerable fat after a series of three CoolSculpting treatments three months apart.
