Your day has come to start the process of transforming your body with a CoolSculpting treatment. You may be curious and excited about what will happen that day, so here’s a sneak peek into the treatment day to help you better prepare and relax. Prior to your treatment, notify the nurses if you are currently on any prescription blood thinners and if you have had an abdominal hernia. At the time of your treatment the CoolSculpting nurse will take your weight and some “before” pictures. After, you will be marked to indicate the treatment areas where the applicators will be placed. The nurse will also apply a thin gel pad to your treatment area to protect it during the procedure and provide you with a pager that you will use to contact the nurse during your treatment should any questions or concerns arise.
After you are hooked up to the CoolSculpting machine, it is time to relax and let the machine do all the work. Since the treatment is non-invasive, painless and relaxing, you may choose to read some magazines, nap or even bring your laptop/Ipad to work. The Sullivan Centre offers complimentary Wi-Fi and Netflix to all of our patients. Immediately following your CoolSculpting treatment your skin maybe tender, tingling and swollen. We highly recommend wearing loose fitting clothing or athletic wear to minimize discomfort after treatment. Downtime is minimal and most patients are able to return to their daily routine immediately after treatment. A gradual reduction in the fat layer thickness will take place as your body will continue to naturally process the injured fat cells. One to three months after your treatment you will start to see your full results. CoolSculpting results are long term because the treated fat cells are gone for good and untreated areas will have no change in fat cell distribution.
All of our patients have been so happy with their CoolSculpting treatments and our team at The Sullivan Centre would love to help you get beach body ready! Call us today at 614-436-8888 to schedule an appointment!
