CoolSculpting – an FDA-approved body contouring treatment – is quickly becoming a popular treatment option for people who want to lose stubborn inches. From slimming down tummies to tightening the arms, CoolSculpting has been helping individuals better fit into their favorite clothing items.
But are there any side effects to CoolSculpting? And if so, what are they?
The 3 Most Common Side Effects of CoolSculpting Treatments
1. Redness and swelling at the treatment site.
Redness and minor swelling are the most common side effects of CoolSculpting, as they appear as a result of the combined vacuuming and cooling effects. The redness usually dissipates after about one week, while slight swelling can remain for a few weeks.
That’s why we recommend leaving plenty of time between your CoolSculpting treatments and any big events for which you want to be 100% prepared.
2. Temporary numbness.
Because CoolSculpting vacuums the patient’s treatment area (so as to deliver cooling energy better), some patients report feeling some temporary numbness for a few days after their CoolSculpting treatment. That’s perfectly normal; however, if the numbing sensation doesn’t go away within a week, you should contact your doctor.
Your skin might feel a little sensitive to the touch after your CoolSculpting treatment; in fact, don’t be surprised if a little bruise blossoms where your treatment took place. Like with most CoolSculpting side effects, sensitivity usually only lasts about a week or so.
If you’re concerned about any additional side effects with CoolSculpting, be sure to voice your concerns to your CoolSculpting technician.

I highly recommend this business as Darlene is really the best at what she does. You will not be disappointed!
