What to Expect After CoolSculpting

There’s no bikini season here in Key West, FL. Our gorgeous blue oceans and white sand beaches are delightful year-round. CoolSculpting can help you keep your body perpetually ready for a day in the sun. This fat-fighting treatment freezes and removes fat from your trouble spots so you’ll always have a flat tummy and toned arms. 

CoolSculpting is one of our most popular non-surgical body contouring treatments. Once you try it, you’ll quickly see why. This procedure works quickly to eliminate unwanted fat cells from the body and reshape your most troublesome spots. Best of all, recovery is quick and easy. 

Here’s what to expect after your CoolSculpting treatment with Dr. Peterson

Will I Have Activity Restrictions After CoolSculpting?

Run, jump, hike, or swim. After your treatment, you can do whatever you like with no activity restrictions. Many of our patients are back the work the same day. 

CoolSculpting requires no downtime. Come in for treatment and keep enjoying life. But don’t worry if you feel like taking a nap. While downtime isn’t required, we certainly won’t judge if you want to take the day off work for a little R & R. 

What Side Effects Are Common During Recovery?

Side effects are minimal after CoolSculpting. Here are a few of the commonly reported sensations you may experience. 

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Stinging
  • Aches
  • Cramping
  • Tenderness

These side effects are typically minor and resolve quickly, often within a couple of days. 

How Much Work Will I Miss After CoolSculpting?

Short on time off? Don’t use your off days to get CoolSculpting – save them for a beach trip to show off your new body instead. CoolSculpting requires no downtime and no missed work, so schedule a session on your lunch hour or before or after work.

When Will I See My Results?

Results take time to appear after a CoolSculpting treatment. The frozen fat cells will be slowly processed and eliminated from your body. You’ll start to see initial results about 4-6 weeks after your treatment. Be patient. These results will continue to improve and refine for about 6 months. 

What results can you expect? The average fat reduction after treatment is 20-25%. Your results may vary, but most of our CoolSculpting patients are delighted by the way their body looks after fat reduction. 

How Do I Maintain My New Body?

  • Maintain a Stable Weight – You can still gain weight after CoolSculpting. Maintaining a consistent weight is important for consistent results. When you gain or lose significant amounts of weight, the size of your fat cells fluctuates. These changes can lead to new trouble spots. Maintaining your weight ensures that your CoolSculpting results will last. 
  • Exercise to Build Muscle – Toned muscles have a dramatic impact on appearance. Enhance your CoolSculpting results by exercising and building muscle. As an added bonus, exercise also helps to maintain your weight. 
  • Treat Again If Needed – For many patients, a single CoolSculpting is all that is needed for bikini body perfection, but if you need a second treatment, we’ve got you covered. CoolSculpting can be performed a second time to further improve the appearance of your trouble spots.
