CoolSculpting® is a great way to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat and to refine your contours and shape following weight loss. Still, despite its popularity, many men and women aren’t sure what to expect in the days, weeks and months after their CoolSculpting session. Here’s what you should know:
- Immediately After
Right after your treatment, you might have some mild soreness, redness, bruising, swelling, tingling or numbness in the treatment area. Your skin may feel a little sensitive as well, and if you have the fat under your chin treated, you might experience a sensation of “fullness” at the back of your throat. These effects are all temporary, and they’ll resolve soon afterward – usually within a few days to a week or so for bruising. There’s no downtime with CoolSculpting, and most men and women go back to their regular routines right after their treatment session.
- 3 Weeks After
About 3-4 weeks after treatment is when most women and men begin to realize the initial results of their treatment. By this time, initial swelling has resolved, so you’re able to see some of the effects of your CoolSculpting treatment as the fat cell debris is removed by your body. It’s important to note that these are the very early results, and you’ll continue to see far more improvement in the weeks ahead.
- 2 Months After
This is when most men and women really notice a dramatic improvement in the treatment area. By this time, the body has been hard at work for 8 weeks, carrying away the cellular debris left from your CoolSculpting treatment. You should have noticeable slimming in the treatment area, with additional improvements to come.
- 4-6 Months After
By this time, your body has removed all or nearly all of the fatty debris from the treatment area, and you should have an idea of what your final results will look like. You’ll also be able to decide if you want additional treatments either in the same area or in other areas where stubborn fat is a problem. Many men and women find having neighboring areas treated can enhance their results. For instance, having both the belly and the back treated can significantly enhance your waistline and silhouette.
