On average, each CoolSculpting procedure results in a 20% reduction of fat. Results are seen over a period of one to three months. Unlike most other methods of fat reduction, CoolSculpting involves no needles, surgery or downtime, and patients may resume their normal activities immediately after treatment. Click here to read more
