Specific results depend on the type of treatment your doctor recommends. You may notice some changes after 3 weeks. Most people can see significant results between 3-6 months.

When you see your dermatologist before the procedure, please make a point to ask them personally about it. 

How Long Does It Take to Remove Fat?

Non-invasive fat reduction treatment requires more than one session for the complete procedure. The number of sessions necessary for the treatment depends on your chosen method.
