If you’ve heard of CoolSculpting then you know all about the revolutionary treatment that ‘freezes’ fat cells away. It’s non-invasive and comes with minimal pain which is great for those who want great results while also keeping things as simple as possible.
CoolSculpting Side Effects
While CoolSculpting is partly so popular because it does not include any long-term pain, some will still experience discomfort. This is mostly due to the cooling effects that take place during the procedure.
Your body must also adjust as fat cells are removed from your body after the treatment. This means discomfort can come and go. Luckily, there are a few ways to lower your discomfort and ensure you are following the proper aftercare.
Tips for Lowering Discomfort
One of the important things you can do to help lower discomfort from CoolSculpting is to ask your doctor about massaging the treated area. This can help the fat freezing process along, while also keeping side effects at bay.
It can also be beneficial to ask your doctor about pain medication should you experience any major discomfort. This will be especially important for any pain or swelling that appears because of your treatment.
Always be sure to ask your doctor before taking any medications.
Care Following CoolSculpting Treatment
CoolSculpting results can appear in as little as three weeks, but in some cases, it may take up to four months. While you shouldn’t experience any major discomfort during this time period, you may experience some side effects.
Here are some tips to help take you through the aftercare process:
- Wear compression clothing
- Wear clothing that’s comfortable and non-irritating
- Keep up with movement as it can help to reduce any pain or inflammation
- Consult your doctor should you experience any major side effects
At the end of the day, CoolSculpting is an incredibly safe, non-surgical procedure that has shown to be very effective in removing fat from certain areas of the body. If CoolSculpting sounds like something you might be interested in, be sure to contact us to book your consultation!
