“I am extremely happy with the result and currently planning other areas for cool sculpting treatment. I had no pain during the one-hour sculpting. There was some tenderness for a couple of days.. however after a week, no more discomfort. Results were noticeable within 3-4 weeks. I highly recommend it. more
4 days ago on June 2, I made this comment after feeling frustrated and mislead: I did a four hour treatment on Friday, Day 2, Saturday, seemed like the pain was going away but on Sunday Day 3 I could barely sleep lots of tension in my belly, area, from soreness to itchyness, sharp pains, tenderness, my stomach never tightens up but it feels like I'm having contractions sometimes. The nurse did... more
After researching Coolsculpting and reading many reviews on this site, I decided to have the procedure done on my lower abs and both flanks. I've never had ripped abs or a six-pack, but as I've gotten older, it's been tougher and tougher to maintain and my weight (and waist) has slowly drifted up. Coolsculpting seemed like a reasonable effective, non-invasive procedure that would really help... more
Had cool sculpting on Nov 22nd. procedure is performed by placing a cool gel sheet on area. I did my abdomen. They place the gel sheet on the area, place a suction device on top of the pad and turn it on. Within a few seconds, the area is sucked up into the device (they call a tip). They used the largest tip and did the area from my belly button down and from hip bone to hip bone. It sucks... more
I decided to get a second treatment 5 weeks after the first one because of a sale. Now 7 days later I have a fever, my belly was so hot and the cramps so intense that I've had cold packs on it today. Plus I have intense diarrhea for 3 days Yes, sure enough that's a side effect. I am going in tomorrow to get something for the pain. Had I known the second time would hurt this bad, I... more
So I have been researching like crazy and still am obviously. I have had 2 consultations at 2 different locations. 1st consultation was quick and an easy convincing of how, "whatever is pinched basically it's the far that melts away" her exact words. I scheduled my appointment and was quoted $2400 for large applicator on tummy and 2 small for love handles.
Still in my researching mode... more
2/1/13 - Had my first CoolSculpting treatment yesterday. I did a large section for my stomach and plan on returning for my love handles next week.
It's been less than 24 hours and so far, no regrets. I followed the reviews on this site for months and decided that with approximately 70% of fairly positive experiences this would be worth a try.
The process went exactly as described.... more
Had cool sculpting done on my lower tummy six months ago and see absolutely no difference. Such a disappointment.
Now I want to do it the right way and get smart lipo but feel so ripped off by this procedure I find it difficult to justify paying the additional money to the same doctor with whom I had the ineffective procedure done with. I really like this Doctor's office staff and go there... more
This was the easiest procedure I've ever had performed. I have always had a "tummy" even when rail thin. Now, my stomach not only looks normal but even my love handles disappeared! I've lost 32 pounds because I feel so good about myself, and now I need another treatment to compensate. more
