I had coolsculpting on my abdomen last Thrusday, so far I've had very minimal to no pain. I felt a couple of needle like pinches here and there but nothing that made take a pain killer. Also, I've had no swealling at all, not even the same day. I've been wearing a compresion garment since the very next day, maybe that helps avoid pain? Does this mean is not gonna work out for me? I hope not! Also, how can I maximize results? I'm using the CompexFit Ab workout 3/week+regular workouts+healthy diet
Had Coolsculpting Last Thursday. I've Had No Pain, Swelling or Cramps. Does That Mean It Didn't Work for Me?

Effective CoolSculpting With No Pain
Many patients do not have pain or swelling after coolsculpting for fat loss
No, not havng pain or swelling after coolsculpting does not mean you won't receive the good result. You may still get good fat reduction despite you not receiving pain.

Results are independent of side effect
Just because you aren't experiencing pain, bruising or swelling doesn't mean your treatment was less effective or that it would have been more effective with more after effects. Some patients just don't experience these things or to only a very minimal degree. Some experience nothing during their first treatment but feel more in the way of soreness or bruising after their second treatment. Patients have reported that when they do experience some swelling and discomfort that they get relief from some type of compression garment. The key to maintaining but not necessarily maximizing your results is maintaining a stable weight. Clearly weight loss would contribute to an added bonus improvement. Good luck

Is CoolSculpting really no pain, all gain?
Compression garments will reduce both pain and swelling. No pain does not mean you won’t have great results. As long as the tissue was frozen when the applicator was removed, you should expect a reduction in the layer of fat. You cannot accelerate the process, though a healthy diet and exercise will hopefully cause additional weight loss in the whole body.
