CoolSculpting treatments one week apart?
Thank you for your question. The minimum amount of time between treatments is 30 days, unless a different area is being treated. Ensure that you always see a physician with experience in CoolSculpting. Regards,
It's not recommended to CoolSculpt the same areas before a month. If you are planning to treat other areas than it's perfectly fine.
Only If Treating a Different Area
First, let me applaud you for using this forum
to double-check on the safety of repeating this procedure so soon. Better safe
than sorry! Follow-up CoolSculpting treatments for the same area should be
scheduled at least a month after the initial procedure. However, if you are
planning on treating a different area, then you can return in 5 days. Best of
Hello, I had my first CoolSculpting procedure done to my saddlebags and upper thighs earlier today. I was told to come in for my
While this is not the recommended approach, studies are finding a short waiting period between treatments has its benefits. I believe you will see the approach becoming more common in the next 12-24 months.
Wait More Than a Week
Assuming you're undergoing a repeat treatment on
the same area of your body, I recommend waiting a minimum of 2 months between
treatments. Undergoing treatments to the same area any more frequently than
that can result in tissue damage and other side effects. However, if you're
undergoing the second treatment on a different area of your body, this approach
is perfectly safe. Please don't be afraid to share your concerns with your
practitioner or choose another office if you still feel unsafe. Kudos to you
for doing your homework, and best of luck.
5 Days Is Too Soon
Just 5 days
between CoolSculpting treatments (provided they're being performed on the same
area of the body) is far too little to be safe. Undergoing multiple treatments
so close together can result in tissue damage and other complications, so
you're right to be concerned. Please feel free to share your thoughts with the
practice and locate another one led by a board-certified plastic surgeon or
dermatologist if necessary.
Give Yourself More Time Between Treatments
You didn't specify where on your body your second
treatment will be performed, but 5
days between CoolSculpting treatments on the same area of the body is far too
little and can potentially result in tissue injury or other complications.
However, if you plan on having CoolSculpting on a different part of your body,
such as your abdomen or arms, then 5 days between treatments is fine. Don't be
afraid to choose a different practitioner if you don't feel that your current
office is taking the proper precautions. Your health and safety are of the
utmost importance. Kudos to you for doing your research. Best of luck!
One week apart CoolSculpting Treatments
Hello and thank you for reaching out. If you are treating the same area approximately 5 days later, I would not suggest going to that appointment. You should really wait to see the full results at least 6 weeks later, before treating again. Trying to treat the same areas too close together will not increase results or make them appear any quicker. Best Wishes!
Treating too early will not help. you should wait for minimum 4-6 weeks in the same treatment area. Best, Dr. Emer.
CoolSculpting Treatments One Week Apart
It does not make much sense to treat the exact same area within 1 week. We treat anywhere between 2-3 months apart for the same area. If you are getting a different area treated then that's ok.
