Numbness After CoolSculpting Fat Reduction
CoolSculpting results are achieved after three months. Most of the side effects are expected during the first three weeks. If you have concerns about your reaction it is recommended that you contact your provider. In my Raleigh NC office we offer CoolSculpting Complete which includes dual machines, compression garments, and vibrational therapy. The compression garments often relieve many of the uncomfortable symptoms after treatment. As the top CoolSculpting provider in the region, we also offer free CoolSculpting treatments with each treatment purchased.

Numbness post procedure
Numbness, followed by tingling and a pins and needles sensation, is not unusual following Coolsculpting. For most the numbness has resolved after one week but for a few it can last 4-6 weeks. Any patients we have treated that have experienced this have resolved completely. No one has had lasting numbness. If you are concerned, follow up with the office that treated you but for now, don't worry. It should resolve soon. Good luck.

Numbness post CoolSculpting
Numbness post CoolSculpting is very normal. You may also experience tingling, burning, and even itching for up to a month after your treatment. Good luck!
You should expect numbness and possibly some tingling in the treatment area for up to one month. This is a completely normal post procedure experience.
This is, in fact, normal. We have had patients tell us that the numbness can last anywhere from one week to well over a month. It will pass with time.
