Had It Done! No Pain! - Los Angeles, CA

I have researched coolsculpting for almost two...

I have researched coolsculpting for almost two years, including reading every review on this website (which is why I'm writing one), and finally had it done yesterday. I am very skeptical of any type of non-surgical fat reduction device, but I'm convinced this one is effective.

I'm 27, 5'7" 128lbs, work out regularly (6 times a week), and eat very clean healthy and vegan. The procedure itself is fine, the first 10mins are weird and uncomfortable, but not painful at all for me. The machine does suck so hard though, I really got a little worried about my organs for a few minutes, so silly. I've had really no pain whatsoever. Not swollen, bruised or red, but just a little tender, similar to a sunburn. I tried going for a run today, but that hurt. I was able to ride a bike and do crunches just fine though. Fingers crossed, I'll be posting updates and results!

Forgot to put that I had my lower abdomen done with the small applicator.

Still a little numb, but no pain.

Still a tiny bit numb, which is surprising. Yesterday while on a run, I felt a weird sensation in the area I had done. . . a tingling/electricity like sensation. Still no changes, but it's only been 3 weeks. . . fingers crossed!!!

I haven't noticed any difference in my lower abdomen. I'm pretty disappointed right now, but I'm hoping within the 3rd month I'll get my results! I'm going in on Friday for a followup, and I will post photos soon!

So I went for my follow up. I was really bloated as it was right before my period, but the esthetician was shocked because she too saw no change. She thought my bloating might be part of it, so I'll be going back in a week or so to have another look. She said if there is no change that she would speak with the rep and hopefully get me another treatment, which is very sweet of her. I'm really bummed so far, but still hopeful that maybe it change in the next month. Fingers crossed!

It's been 4 months since my treatment. I went back...

It's been 4 months since my treatment. I went back for another followup, the aesthetician is so nice and accomodating. I told her I really don't see a difference or feel it. She brought the nurse in to look at me and my before photos, she was trying to convince me that there was a definite difference when she only glanced at my before and after photos. . . It was pretty annoying. But I told her, "if I saw even a small change I'd be ecstatic, but I truly don't." The aesthetician totally understood that I should see and feel some sort of difference. She is going to talk to their manager about possibly getting me another treatment. I'm really bummed it hasn't worked. :(

It's been 5 months since the procedure and I see...

It's been 5 months since the procedure and I see zero difference. I very bummed. I spoke with the manager, and they offered to do the procedure again at half the price. But at this point, if I don't notice even a subtle change, I see no point in getting another one. I was really really hoping that this would work, but it didn't for me.

The staff at OU beauty is so awesome, they gave me another treatment! I just had it done yesterday and going back in at the 5 week mark. I massaged my abdomen a lot after the treatment since I've read in several places that massages helps facilitate the fat dispersement. . . . to be seen!!! I'll update soon :)

I'm changing my review to "unsure" as I feel like there might be a small change. I'm now 4 weeks out and I'm going back in to see my before and after photos on the 13th. Stay tuned.
nurse renee

Never saw the doctor, but the trained esthetician Renee who applied it was great. She answered all of my questions and was attentive and sweet.
