As they say, summer bodies are made in winter, and that is certainly true of nonsurgical body contouring treatments. While you can get treatments like CoolSculpting® and EMSCULPT® any time of year, winter is particularly good timing if you’re looking to have results by summer.

These are a few of the top reasons why right now is one of the best times to schedule your nonsurgical fat removal treatment and look your best come warmer weather.

1. Results Will Take Time to Develop

CoolSculpting, EMSCULPT and other nonsurgical body contouring treatments can yield excellent results without surgery or extensive downtime. Still, you will have to be patient for your final outcome to fully develop. For example, CoolSculpting results will gradually develop over the course of 6 months following treatment. So if you start now, you’ll be ready to hit the beach just in time for summer vacation.

So go ahead, cozy up in those oversized sweaters, sipping hot cocoa by the fire while your waist whittles away.

2. You Might Need Multiple Treatments to See Optimal Results

Back-to-back CoolSculpting treatments of the same area have been shown to reduce the amount of fat in that area by 60 percent.

Depending on which procedure you choose and which areas you’re targeting, more than one treatment might be recommended for optimal results.

Four initial 30-minute EMSCULPT treatments are typically recommended to maximize your results. So starting your first treatment in the winter should give you enough time to schedule these appointments and see results come summer.

Some people require several CoolSculpting treatments over the course of a few months, but if you choose a practice with access to two machines — using a technique called DualSculpting® — you can essentially cut your treatment time in half.

3. Your Busy Schedule Might Slow Down This Time of Year

Summer can be a busy time of year for lots of people, whether you have kids who are home on summer vacation, family visiting or lots of trips planned. If this is the case for you, consider scheduling your body contouring treatment for the winter, when things might be a little slower.

While your appointment shouldn’t take very long — EMSCULPT is done in around 30 minutes — and you won’t have downtime, it can be nice to feel like you have some room in your schedule to breathe and relax.

4. New Year, New You

This is an excellent time of year to start thinking about and getting a head start on our goals. Many people have a newfound motivation this time of year to eat healthier, exercise more, get more sleep and other healthy lifestyle changes.

So use this refreshing new start to the year as motivation to adopt the healthy habits that will help you maximize the results of your nonsurgical fat removal treatment and enjoy them for years to come. Because even though these treatments can be very effective, they’ll still require that you take care of your body to keep the fat off.
