Many patients ask us this question about CoolSculpting. We like to talk them through questions like these in the initial consultation, but because we have a blog (and we’re not afraid to use it), we’d like to offer a few thoughts here.
Right at the start, we’d like to get one important thing out of the way – everybody’s different. No two people are put together the same or respond to treatment in the same way. It’s important to understand that before we start talking about this treatment model.
Stacking – what is it?
Referred to as “stacking”, the practice of doing two back-to-back sessions on the same area, on the same day has its proponents in the medical spa sector. We know that it can be highly effective. That said, is it wise to do something twice in a row that you’ve never done before?
For seasoned CoolSculptors, stacking may be advisable. They and their practitioners understand how their bodies are going to respond, because they’ve worked together before. If, however, you’re new to CoolSculpting, we don’t recommend stacking.
CoolsSculpting’s long-term, progressive results are better experienced with sessions involving the same area spaced about 8 weeks apart. Ethos Spa’s guests are always advised conservatively, especially when they’re coming to us for their very first aesthetic procedure. This gives the therapy time to do its fat cell-killing job and for your body to eliminate the residue of the procedure via its natural systemic action.
Having said all that, two different areas (for example, the upper and lower abdominal regions) may be treated over the course of the same session.
The multiple session debate and spacing.
At Ethos Spa Skin & Laser Center, we know our guests enjoy incredible results with CoolSculpting therapy. Because we treat so many people, we have an intimate understanding of the treatment and the diversity of timelines involved for different people and the various areas being addressed.
Many medical spas recommend two months between sessions. At Ethos, we think that’s a sufficiently realistic timeline. It permits the body to do its job and allows the guest to see at least the beginning of the dramatic results which can be realized with this technology.
Of course, mileage may vary. Different medical spas make varied recommendations in this regard. Of course, some of those recommendations may be based on the guest’s body type, budget and availability for treatment.
So, can you benefit from more than one CoolSculpting session in the same area? The answer is a qualified “yes”.
