Diet and Exercise and CoolSculpting®
Continue your diet and exercise program after the Coolsculpting® procedure. You may notice some mild soreness but the activity and stretching are helpful. A good diet and hydration is also a good idea.
What Does CoolSculpting® Feel Like?
Initially with the CoolSculpting® procedure you will feel a suction as the tissue is drawn into the applicator. Gradually over several minutes the tissue becomes numb. When the cycle ends and the tissue warms it feels tingling and warm. Over the next several days the treated area has a vague numbness to the area and a mild tenderness to the touch.
Can CoolSculpting® be repeated?
Yes, the same area can be treated more than once to achieve even more shape change! You will be re-evaluated by the CoolSculpting® team at 6-8 weeks to determine if you would benefit from additional CoolSculpting® cycles.
What Happens if I Gain Weight Down the Road?
Many people, after seeing the results from their CoolSculpting® procedure take better care of themselves. However, if you do gain weight, you may gain it evenly all over your body, not just in the treated or non-treated areas.
Can I Return to My Normal Activities after my CoolSculpting® Procedure?
Yes, you can! The CoolSculpting® procedure is completely non-surgical, so typically you can return to normal activities immediately. Often times, patients will return to work after their CoolSculpting® session is over.
