What to Expect After Your CoolSculpting Fat Freezing Session

Posted by November 5th, 2019 in News

No matter how dedicated you are to exercise and eating right, some fatty bulges in your belly, love handles, or flanks, simply refuse to go away. Thanks to the revolutionary technology behind the CoolSculpting fat freezing procedure, however, stubborn fat should no longer be a concern.

CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved non-invasive treatment that involves the freezing of fat cells to give your body the slimmer, sexier shape you desire. But while positive CoolSculpting results are probably foremost on most people’s minds when they think of this procedure, there are other details you should know about the post-treatment period.

Today, we’ve compiled a list of what you should expect after your CoolSculpting fat freezing session.

  • Because CoolSculpting doesn’t involve going under the knife, its recovery period is either extremely brief or nonexistent. Expect to be able to resume regular activities and even work as soon as possible.
  • Immediately after having your physician freeze your fat off, expect some temporary minor side effects such as redness, swelling firmness, tingling, stinging, numbness, or bruising. One to two weeks after your CoolSculpting treatment, the swelling, bruising, redness, aching, cramping, soreness, tingling, skin sensitivity should resolved though the numbness may be present for another 1-2 weeks.
  • You can expect observable improvements in the treated areas within three weeks of freezing your fat cells. Dramatic CoolSculpting results become visible within two to three months after treatment, though the process of flushing your fat continues for up to half a year. Anticipate some changes in your wardrobe as previously tight and ill-fitting clothes become looser and just the right fit for you!
  • When you freeze your fat off, the treated fat is permanently removed and never returns. For optimal results, patients may need additional treatments in the same area. However, this won’t prevent you from gaining weight again. Therefore, your desirable CoolSculpting results will endure as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. CoolSculpting should always be combined with a healthy, nutritious diet and a disciplined fitness routine.
  • The CoolSculpting fat freezing treatment only gets rid of stubborn fat, so don’t expect it to be the magic solution for obesity. Only people who are in good shape, or those who are 30 pounds within their body type and height’s ideal weight, should expect to benefit from this technique.
  • If you want to get rid of more fat or in more than one area of your body, it’s possible your physician will ask you to return for additional sessions. CoolSculpting will freeze fat off in the following areas: abdomen, love handles, flanks, bra fat, back fat, arms, saddlebags, thighs, and chin.

Are you eager to get rid of that stubborn fat? Then consider freezing those fat cells off through CoolSculpting. Who knows, it just might be the fat reduction treatment you need.
