What Happens Before And During a CoolSculpting Treatment?
Step 1: Are You A Good Candidate?
You will need to come in for an initial appointment to determine if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting. A good candidate for CoolSculpting has fat that is pinchable. During the initial appointment, your nurse will try to pinch your trouble areas and determine whether or not the CoolSculpting device will be able to attach.
Step 2: Trouble Areas Are Marked And Applicators Attached
Once you’ve been cleared, the nurse will mark the troubles areas you discussed. The markings show them exactly where to place the CoolSculpting applicators.
After the applicators are placed, they turn on the machine and allow it to run a cycle. The area being treated will feel cold, but it shouldn’t hurt. Patients say CoolSculpting feels like suction, but quite comfortable. Most procedures last about 35 minutes.
Step 3: The Area is Massaged
The final step of the procedure involved the nurse massaging your treated areas. This helps with lymphatic drainage and allows your body to remove the dead fat.

When To Expect CoolSculpting Results

The full CoolSculpting effect takes upwards of 6 months, but you will see big changes by the third week after treatment. Depending on the area you have treated, you may want to do the procedure more than once. The doctor will discuss with you the best options to get the results you want.
