Coolsculpting Elite Pre and Post Care


What to expect before Coolsculpting Elite

    information that will help you prepare for your future treatment.

    can change into before treatment.

    taking supplements that thin the blood. These may include fish oil, Vitamin E, green tea, garlic,
    tumeric, aspirin, anti-inflammatory medication.
  • On the day of treatment, please feel free to bring music, tablets, reading material or your favorite
    streaming shows/movies. Your treatment may last several hours and this will provide a nice
    distraction to help the time pass. You may also desire to bring food/drink with you.

  •  CoolSculpting Elite is a non-surgical procedure that may take from one to several hours, depending
    on your treatment plan.

    vacuum pressure may cause sensations of deep pulling, tugging and pinching in the area being

    subside as the area becomes numb.
  •  You may feel a sense of nausea or dizziness during the post-treatment re-warming massage and as
    your body naturally warms and sensation returns to your treatment area. These are normal reactions
    that typically resolve within minutes.

What to expect immediately after CoolSculpting Elite:

  • Immediately after the procedure, your treated area may look or feel stiff and transient redness may

    expected but temporary effect after CoolSculpting Elite.

    or two.
  • Tingling, stinging and cramping in the treatment area are often reported on treatment day.

    daily routine immediately after the procedure.

What to expect the first few days and weeks after CoolSculpting Elite:

  • It is common for the treated area to feel bloated and look swollen in the first few days and weeks
    after CoolSculpting Elite.
  • You may experience a temporary dulling of sensation that can last for several weeks.
  • At some point within the first two weeks following the procedure, you may experience one or more of
    the following sensations: deep itching, tingling, pain in the treated area, strong cramping, muscle
    spasms, aching and/or soreness. Please call our providers if these conditions occur.
  •  Following the procedure, a gradual reduction in the thickness of the fat layer will take place. You
    may start to see changes as early as four weeks after CoolSculpting Elite and you will experience the
    most dramatic results after one to three months. Your body will continue naturally to process the
    injured fat cells from your body for approximately four months after your procedure.

Next steps:

  • Weight gain will prevent you from appreciating your full results. Maintaining your weight and a
    healthy diet and exercise routine after your procedure can help prevent this.
  • Plan to attend your upcoming appointments for additional treatment and/or follow-up evaluation.
