CARE

WHAT TO EXPECT IMMEDIATELY AFTER TREATMENT?

Most patients can return to their day-to-day activities immediately after their CoolSculpting treatment session.

Brief tingling or stinging sensations.

You may experience stiffness and/or transient blanching (temporary whitening of the skin) in the treated area(s).

Slight nausea or dizziness may occur for a few minutes as your body readjusts to its natural warmth and sensation.

Redness in the treated area(s) may persist for up to a few hours after the applicator is removed.

Any bruising, swelling, numbness, and/or tenderness that occurs will resolve within two weeks. Bruising on the legs may take longer to heal.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN THE WEEKS FOLLOWING TREATMENT?

It is very common for the treated area(s) to feel bloated or swollen in the first few weeks after treatment.

A temporary dullness in sensation could occur for several weeks.

During the first two weeks after a treatment session, you may experience deep itching, tingling, numbness, tenderness to the touch, severe cramping, diarrhea, muscle spasms, aching, and/or soreness. If any of the symptoms mentioned persist or worsen after two weeks, please contact our office.

The treated fat cells will gradually break down and flush from the treated area(s) as the body breaks them down.

Approximately 25% reduction per treatment.

COOLSCULPTING POSTCARE AND LONG-TERM MAINTENANCE

Schedule a follow-up appointment approximately three months after each treatment to review your results and decide whether you need further treatments.

Once your treatment package has been completed and you are happy with your results, you should try to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen so that your body’s remaining fat cells do not grow.
