Coolsculpting is an effective and safe way to freeze fat cells for weight loss. It is an FDA weight loss process that is non-invasive and does not require medications to be taken. Coolsculpting gives the best result when dieting and exercise are followed, and the patient is close to their ideal weight. Although CoolSculpting works for many people, it is important to recognize some of the side effects. One of the initial questions we get asked about CoolSculpting is, “will this hurt?” This weight loss treatment usually is not referred to as painful, but some feel discomfort during the session.
The most commonly shared experience with Coolsculpting side effects is felt during the procedure. During the process, a patient will feel some pain caused by the numbness from the cooling sensation. A slight pinching or pulling pain is felt applicator is applied. Numbness eventually sets in after 10 to 15 minutes, which means the rest of the session should be fine.
After the Coolsculpting process, it is possible that a person might feel pain, swelling, and itching around the site of the Coolsculpting. Some areas are more susceptible to pain after the procedure. For instance, the abdomen is the most vulnerable area.
Most of the side effects felt with Coolsculpting are minimal and go away with several days. Some common side effects felt during and after are:
Taking some pain reducing medication or using a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug will lower discomfort levels during and after procedures. Coolsculpting is safe an only causes minor discomfort.
