What Can I Do After CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting works on the principle that fat cells are worse equipt to withstand extreme cold than the other cells in your body. Essentially CoolSculpting brings your fat cells to a certain temperature for a certain amount of time, and in doing so, the fat cells are set up for death!

Depending on which body parts you are treating and how many, you could be freezing fat for 35 minutes to several hours, but it’s done non-invasively and in the comfort of beautifully designed Bodify rooms. Because it is non-invasive, there are no scars, and there is little to no downtime as well. Most clients visit the office at least two times for treatments to get the most dramatic and beautiful outcomes. CoolSculpting Elite is FDA-Cleared and is safe, effective, and a great way to finally see changes in that stubborn diet and exercise-resistant spots.

What are the Side effects of CoolSculpting?

While CoolSculpting is generally considered safe and effective, it’s essential to be aware of potential side effects. One common side effect is temporary redness, swelling, bruising, or numbness in the treated area, which typically resolves on its own within a few days or weeks. Some individuals may experience sensations of tingling, stinging, or tenderness at the treatment site, which are usually mild and transient. In rare cases, more severe side effects such as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), where fat cells in the treated area increase rather than decrease, can occur, although this is extremely rare. Additionally, some individuals may experience changes in skin sensation or contour irregularities, but these are usually temporary and resolve over time. It’s essential to discuss any concerns or potential side effects with your CoolSculpting provider before undergoing treatment to ensure you are fully informed and prepared.

What Should I Expect After the CoolSculpting Procedure?

Following the CoolSculpting procedure, it’s common to experience some discomfort, swelling, and tenderness in the treated area. These sensations are usually mild to moderate and typically subside within a few days. Some individuals may also notice temporary numbness or tingling sensations as the nerve endings in the treated area reawaken, which can be uncomfortable, particularly at night. However, for the majority of patients, these sensations are manageable with over-the-counter pain medication and resolve on their own over time. It’s essential to follow any post-procedure instructions provided by your CoolSculpting provider to ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results. If you experience any severe or prolonged discomfort, it’s essential to contact your provider for guidance and support.

Medical Conditions that Could Occur as a Result of a CoolSculpting Procedure

Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia or PAH is a rare side effect of this treatment, which is corrected through liposuction paid for by Allergan’s insurance policy. Instead of the cells dying from the cold, they could grow larger.

Maintaining your body

The fat takes around 1-4 months to leave your body. You should maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle with this body sculpting service for maximum effectiveness.

The best advice is “follow a healthy diet and exercise regularly.” If you need more specific direction, it is best to check in with a dietitian or a personal trainer. Otherwise, you can look up some cardio exercises and generic diet plans.
