I work out and watch my calories but some stubborn fat in my lower belly and back led me to CoolSculpting. Pure vanity. I allowed myself to be sucked in by the simply-stated procedure in the brochure and buzz words of "non-surgical, " "FDA Approved, " and "patients return to their normal routine." I signed the release form outlining the possible ill side effects that occur in a certain... more
After having my daughter in 2012 I lost a total of 30 lbs with diet and exercise. I weight train and cardio 4-5 days a week and the mid section doesn't seem to go away. I've been researching coolsculpting for the past yr now and decided to buy a coolsculpting groupon last month. Today was my first of 2 sessions. Hoping for the best!!
It's been one week and I've lost a total of .5 inches off... more
Had cool sculpting done on day six lots of pain lots swelling lots of burning and very itchy. I know it's still early to tell about my results but so far I'm very nervous how everything is feeling. I was even told I could work out 24hrs after the procedure. I tried to run today, and it was so painful I could barely do a minute. I can't bend down, and I'm getting very little sleep with all... more
I had this done by a reputable DR in Houston Texas. I followed all instructions and went to 2 follow up appts. There was absolutely no change, I did not gain weight so that was not the issue. Pre and post photo, I could see no changes. The nurse pointed out a slight change in shadow under my tummy, I could see NOTHING. If there was a slight change in shadow at all it was due to not being in... more
As soon as the large padel was placed on the stomach I had such intense pain to my naval. so much so I could not talk. I felt as thou my entire body was being lifted by a hook on my naval. I was instructed to breath deep but do not hypervinalate. I was with a friend that just had the same procedure and she said the pain would only last ten minutes and would get better. My pain in my naval... more
I'm a Aesthetician and get to try all the new machines. The procedure was a piece of cake about three days later the sharp "pens and needle" pains went from a 3 to max 10, the pain comes and goes every few seconds to few minutes. Its a total nightmare. Non invasion, back to work the next day, well I was back to work the next day until day three I've been in bed for two days and now have to... more
Hello, I went for my coolsculpting consultation yesterday. I am 5'4 160 pounds(within 10 pounds of my ideal weight). However I have a shelf or as some people call it a mothers apron than hangs due to my csection 6 years ago. I am very active and I work out alot but regardless of what exercise I do my lower stomach does not loose any fat. At my consultation the doctor reccommended I have two... more
I am 27 yrs old 156 lbs at 5'0 . I have always had hard time sticking to a diet and excersing. My weight goes up and down but now I have reached the highest weight and felt I needed a bust to start getting motivated again. I got my lower abdominal and two upper today.
For me it was painful at the start of each treatment because and at the end when the machine was removed and the tech... more
I had some holiday weight gain from last year and couldn't seem to get rid of the excess belly fat, even after starting up an exercise routine. I heard about the coolsculpt and thought that I would give it a try after hearing from others' personal experiences. I saw results by the end of first month without drastically changing my diet. Knowing that I had to pay for the treatment has helped me... more
Treating my lower stomach with Cool Sculpting gave me the motivation I needed to eat healthier and exercise more. I can already see some results and it has only been a week. I treated my lower stomach with 3 large applicators. It took about 3 ½ hours to complete but I brought a book to read and homework to do during the treatment. The staff made sure I felt comfortable by adjusting the seat... more
I'm 41, have had three children and have ranged in size over the years between 6-10.
7 weeks ago I had Cool Sculpting done on my hips/saddlebags. I've had this problem for as long as I can remember, regardless of my size or weight. I honestly was skeptical about the procedure because the cost was actually fairly reasonable ($1,400 per area and they had a special where if you buy 2... more
A while back I saw a coolsculpting ad, and it really got me curious. After checking prices, I decided to hold off and sure enough a week later there was a Groupon deal in my area. I looked up the office and the Doctor was board certified and the office had good reviews so I decided to jump on the board.
I called to make an appointment for a consultation which she said that I could go... more
Just had CoolSculpting done on yesterday. I had one large area done on my lower abdomen. I'm 5'7 and I weight 135. I've always had a potbelly...even in my 20's before my kids when I wore a size 2! Now, twenty years and two babies later, it's worse. I've considered both Lipo and a Tummy Tuck but I've been too chicken to do either. I worked up the nerve to try CoolSculpting first! If the results... more
I had CoolSculpting done 9 days ago. Today has been the least painful for me. I had my tummy and love handles done. The procedure itself was tolerable. The first 10 minutes on my tummy was pretty painful. It felt like the wind had been knocked out of me. I have a high pain tolerance and was surprised that it hurt as much as it did. The massage afterwards was painful too. The love handle area... more
I had 3 areas done today because after a lot of weight loss my abdomen just wouldn't shrink any more after 3 years. So here it is an honest review. Did it hurt? Yes like hell. Was it unbearable? Not even close. Each section I had done was done separately so I was in the office for over 3 hours. The first section was with the large cup size covering my right side and front of lower abdomen.... more
My inner thighs and lack of waist line always bothered me, but I was not ready to go through a surgery. When I heard abut CoolSculpting is offered at Clear Lake Dermatology. I met with Dr.Joe for a free consultation. I was so excited with his knowledge behind the technology.
I bought the coolsculpting for my flank areas. After two months of the initial treatment, I was so happy with the... more
A great experience! I was taken back to the room, asked to changed into a towel and robe. The sweet tech took my pictures and measured me, then went over the areas I need again as previously discussed in a consultation appointment.
I was a little surprised after the machine was placed on an area, the vacuum is very strong and a little uncomfortable but she said it would be numb after a few... more
