How Many Treatments Are Needed to See Results

Thanks to CoolSculpting, there is no reason to live with bulges of fat on your arms. In 35 to 60 minutes, you will notice a significant difference, which will continue to improve over the next few months. The number of treatments required to achieve optimum results depends on the volume of fat.

For most people, one CoolSculpting treatment will eliminate 20 to 25 percent of body fat on the target area. Although you would see a drastic improvement from one treatment, to reduce fat by 50 percent or more, you can always have follow-up procedures performed. When going through the physician consultation, you will get a much better idea as to the actual number of treatments that you would need on your arms.

How Much Pain Is There During the Treatment?

One of the many benefits of having CoolSculpting performed on your arms is that during the procedure, there is only a small amount of discomfort. If anything, you might notice a slight sensation of tingling, aching, or pinching, which would last a few minutes.

CoolSculpting uses controlled cold, so once the cooling effect sets in, you will not feel anything. Even after having this procedure done, only 10 percent of people report pain, which is typically minimal and short lasting.

Is CoolSculpting Effective for the Upper Arms?

Initially after launching the procedure in 2010, physicians used CoolSculpting to freeze fat cells on the stomach, upper legs, and around the waistline. As of February 2017, this procedure became available to target fat on the arms, specifically the upper portion.

CoolSculpting is a reduction treatment that freezes fat cells. This controlled cold treatment lowers the temperature of fat cells of the target area, causing them to release the fat inside. From there, the released fat metabolizes and over days and weeks. Then, it gets flushed out of the body naturally. As a result, the fat cells shrink, giving your upper arms a thinner and more sculpted appearance.

Is CoolSculpting Effective for Saggy Arms?

While this treatment is highly effective for reducing fat, it does not tighten saggy skin on the arms. For that problem, a qualified physician can use different skin-tightening procedures, such as ultrasound and an arm lift, whereby excess skin gets removed surgically. When talking to your doctor, find out which secondary treatment would work best to eliminate sagging skin.

Does CoolSculpting Work on the Back of the Arms?

The answer to this question is yes. Any area of your arms with extra fat will benefit from the CoolSculpting treatment. Depending on the volume of fat cells, you might need to go through more than one session.

Thermage Versus CoolSculpting for the Arms – Which Is Better?

While both Thermage and CoolSculpting are noninvasive procedures that create a more youthful appearance, they work differently. Today, these treatments are top choices for people who want to capture more youthful-appearing skin. With Thermage, fine lines and wrinkles disappear while cellulite reduces.

This treatment uses radio frequency energy as a uniformed heating source that targets the skin’s deep dermal layer. Not only does the gentle heat tighten collagen, it also stimulates new growth. As a result, you would notice lifted and plumper skin that appears younger and natural.

In comparison, CoolSculpting uses a process called Cryolipolysis, which involves controlled cold that eliminates fat. This FDA-approved treatment is noninvasive, pain-free, and highly effective. Now that it is available for the arms, you can finally get rid of fat bulges that leave you feeling embarrassed.

Fat cells are highly sensitive to cold, so when chilled, they respond uniquely. With CoolSculpting, the temperature of the fat cells in the target area decreases, causing them to release the fat inside. Within days to weeks, the fat metabolizes and flushes out from the body naturally. After just one treatment, you will notice a dramatic improvement. If you want to have even more fat removed from your arms, you can go through additional procedures.

While Thermage targets collagen to give aging adults younger-looking skin, CoolSculpting reduces stored fat to produce a contoured and sculpted appearance. Depending on your skin type, the results of one CoolSculpting procedure could last anywhere from six months to a year, sometimes longer. While the full effects of Thermage take several months to see, those provided by CoolSculpting are immediate.

What Is the Price of CoolSculpting for the Arms?

This innovative treatment costs roughly $750 an hour, with a one-hour minimum. Considering that it will only take about an hour to complete both arms, you can expect to pay between $750 and $1,000 per session. With the results that CoolSculpting produces, that is money well spent.

If you want to look amazing this summer or perhaps you have an important event coming up that requires you to wear a sleeveless dress, CoolSculpting will transform the appearance of your arms to give you newfound confidence. Affordable, pain-free, and proven to work, this treatment is unbeatable for getting rid of fat.
