Hello, and thank you for your questions. For optimal results, you should plan your VenusFreeze treatments 1 week apart, trying not to miss more than a week- 2 weeks in between. For body parts, we do recommend at least 8-10 treatments with "maintenance" treatments every 3-4 months. VenusFreeze is, unfortunately, not a permanent solution. While we have seen phenomenal results, it is a treatment that needs to be continual. Please visit with your VenusFreeze specialist as they have the best knowledge for your particular case. Best of luck to you!
