52 in Good Shape with Flabby Upper Arms and Some Back Fat - Manhattan, NY

Day 1: Very sore after the cool sculpting machine...

Day 1:
Very sore after the cool sculpting machine was taken off and the technician massaged the area! Really painful when the numbing sensation ceased and feeling came back. The upper arms were tough, too.

After about 10 minutes it felt fine. Although I did take two Advil at the end. There us definitely bruising it hickey marks but they seem to be fading already. No pain in my abdomen area 15 min post procedure. Totally numb and swollen though.

Day 2:
Definitely tender and tingly. Skin feels tingly, stomach feels like sore muscles. But wearing jean shorts and it's not bothering my stomach at all. Worked out on the bike for 30 min. Very puffy.

Day 3
Feels like the puffiness is going down. Still sensitive to the touch but not unbearable at all. Just a weird sensation

Day 4: feeling the pain. Jogging across the street was bearable but I could definitely feel where the procedure was done. Stomach and back of arms. Bruising is subsiding

Day 5: more the same but the bruising has gone down significantly. Taking arnica and using magnesium oil on the sensitive areas. Noticed the swelling has gone down too. Weight 114.2

Day 6: weight 114.2
Stabbing pain in the abdominal area. Definitely more acute pain rather than the dull constant kind. Feels like massive muscle strain. Arms are fine just pins and needles when touched. Hardly noticeable bruising!
