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.
