How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Do You Typically Need?

Excess fat on your body can lead to feelings of self-consciousness and affect your self-esteem. If you’re looking for a solution, our CoolSculpting treatments at Xanadu Med Spa in Fort Collins, CO can help.

How Many CoolSculpting Sessions Do You Typically Need?

If you’re looking to lose weight, then diet and exercise are some of the best things you can do. But even when you eat healthy and get plenty of exercise, sometimes stubborn fat in certain areas of your body refuses to go away.

If you’re struggling with this issue, then you might want to look into CoolSculpting. This is a safe and non-invasive procedure that targets stubborn fat on various parts of your body. Some people will only need one treatment to see the results they want. However, a good percentage will follow up with a second treatment about six weeks to eight weeks following the initial visit.  

What Exactly Is CoolSculpting?

If you have excess fat in some areas of your body, you might be wondering what exactly this treatment is and what it might be able to do for you. This treatment method uses something called cryolipolysis, meaning that the fat is frozen using a non-invasive applicator.

This treatment method was discovered when scientists began researching what frostbite does to our bodies’ fat cells. The process includes using two paddles to cool down the fat cells in the targeted areas, destroying these cells. Over the next few weeks, your body will naturally clear out these dead fat cells.

What Can It Treat?

There are several parts of the body that you can target with this treatment. Your provider may not recommend this treatment as a weight-loss method alone. Rather, it’s designed to target any areas where you are finding stubborn fat deposits despite a healthy diet and exercise.

Here are a few places where you might receive this treatment.


One of the most common places where our bodies store fat is around our stomachs. Women especially tend to find a lot of fat in this area. If this isn’t something you appreciate, then a treatment like this one can help you effectively get rid of fat safely and quickly.


You may find that you have fat that refuses to go away on your upper arm area. If this fat is making you feel self-conscious, then this treatment can help you get rid of it. You’ll be left with defined, lean arms without any saggy fat.

Another thing that this treatment can target is fat around the armpits, also called bra bulge.


The thigh area can be a source of insecurity for many people. Unfortunately, it’s also an area where it can be hard to get rid of fat. If you’re eating right and exercising regularly and still finding a lot of fat around your thighs, then this treatment can provide you with a safe way to get rid of this unwanted fat.


Do you have a lot of excess fat around your chin and neck? Is your double chin making you feel self-conscious about your appearance? If your healthy diet and exercise don’t seem to be helping matters, then this treatment can target the area and help get rid of your unwanted double chin.


Targeting this are might be especially beneficial for men who have excess fat around the chest area. Men who are self-conscious about the appearance of excess fat on their chest may want to look into this non-invasive treatment to help.

Everything You Should Know About Treatment

If you think this treatment could be right for you, then visiting a qualified technician to provide it for you is the best thing to do. Our clinic in Fort Collins, CO is ready to provide you with a safe and effective treatment that will get you results that you’ll love. Here’s what you can expect when you visit us.


Before coming in for your treatment, we’ll need to have a consultation with you. This will allow us to determine what your areas of concern are and how our treatment can help you. It will also help us decide if this is the safest, most effective treatment for your concerns.

The consultation will give you the chance to ask any questions that you might have about the process. We want you to feel comfortable at our clinic, so don’t hesitate to bring up anything on your mind. We’ll be more than happy to answer your questions.

Preparing for Treatment

This non-invasive procedure requires very little preparation beforehand. Just keep in mind that this treatment is best performed on overall fit and healthy people who have unwanted fat bulges on their bodies. It is not a solution for weight loss for those struggling with obesity.

Before you go in for your procedure, you should avoid taking certain medications like aspirin. This will help prevent any bruising caused by the applicators. Other than this, you will not need to do anything to prepare for your treatment.

Your Treatment

When you receive this treatment, our highly trained technicians will do everything they can to keep the process safe and comfortable for you. The treatment will be provided to you using a handheld device. The applicator is similar in appearance to the nozzles of a vacuum cleaner. The applicator will be applied to the areas where you have excess and unwanted fat. Cooling energy will be delivered to the area through the device. This device will be moved over the desired area, freezing the fat.

Though you may feel some pulling or slight pinching sensations from the applicator, the process should be painless. Let your technician know if you begin feeling any pain. Depending on the area you are treating, your appointment may take anywhere from an hour to around three hours. You can bring something with you like a book or work while the treatment is performed.


Unlike surgical procedures, this treatment is non-invasive, which means that your healing time after treatment will be minimal. Because there is essentially no downtime associated with this treatment, one of the benefits is that you’ll be able to get back to your regular life. Just be mindful of following our post-treatment instructions once you leave our clinic.

Your Results

You may not notice a difference right away after your treatment. That’s normal. Over the following few weeks, you will begin to notice changes in the areas you’ve treated. Most people see noticeable results around three weeks after treatment. You will continue to see your results improving for around six months post-treatment.

Most people only require one session, but some areas might require additional treatment later on. Remember that this treatment is not a way to lose weight. If you want to maintain your results from your treatment, make sure to continue following an overall healthy lifestyle.
