Any nsaid, like motrin or naprosyn will typically work quite well for the cramping after coolsculpting. in cases of severe cramping we will prescribe more robust pain pills, but fortunately the need for these is rare.
Most patients do not need medication of any kind, even naproxen (Aleve) But, for patients experiencing discomfort, it could possibly be helpful. In my practice, every person receiving a CoolSculpting treatment is given a compression garment. That seems to help patients feel comfortable and secure. Typically there is little to no pain immediately after the treatment but several days later the most common reports are sensations similar to mild bruising or a feeling similar to the feeling...
Thanks for your question, Arla. Yes, an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) such as Naproxen can help reduce any post-procedure discomfort after a CoolSculpting procedure, which is typically quite minimal. I would recommend you consult the doctor who performed your procedure if your amount of discomfort is severe, persistent or does not resolve with over-the-counter medications such as Naproxen.
