Post-Treatment Instructions for CoolSculpting®
The suction pressure of a vacuum applicator may cause sensations of deep pulling, tugging, pinching. A surface applicator may cause sensations of pressure. You may experience intense cold, stinging, tingling, aching or cramping as the treatment begins. These sensations generally subside during treatment as the area becomes numb.
You may have dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, flushing, sweating, or fainting during or immediately after the treatment.
The treated area may look or feel stiff after the procedure and transient blanching (temporary whitening of the skin) may occur. These are all normal reactions that typically resolve within a few minutes.
Bruising, swelling, redness, cramping, and pain can occur in the treated area and the treated area may appear red for one or two weeks after treatment.
After submental area treatment, a feeling of fullness in the back of the throat may occur.
You may feel a dulling sensation in the treated area that can last for several weeks after the procedure. Prolonged swelling, itching, tingling, numbness, tenderness to the touch, pain in the treated area, cramping, aching, bruising and/or skin sensitivity also have been reported.
