Freezing the Back/bra Fat - Paradise Valley, AZ

Today I had my first cool sculpting treatment on...

Today I had my first cool sculpting treatment on my back fat. I felt no pain when the suction started, and no cramping or anything until the procedure was over, and the frozen fat was massaged. I started to feel nauseated (this is from the thawing and heat coming back to the frozen area, and I also felt like I had worked out hard. Nothing unbearable! I am 10 hours out, and feel fine, just like I had a hard workout. A bit sensitive if I lean back in my chair...but so far I am feeling great. I will keep you all updated, and will post pics when I can get someone to take some for me. :)
I am 5'4, 154 lbs and I have been on low dose prednisone for several years. This is an attempt to reduce the fat I acquired from the prednisone. I am feeling confident that I will have a successful result.

Day 7 post cool sculpting

Its about 7 days post cool sculpting, and I am still doing well. I have not noticed any changes yet, but I wasn't expecting to. I am feeling some tenderness, itching, and pins and needles. I feel like I jumped in freezing cold water, and I can feel my skin is tingling. Its not pleasant, but its not something I can't handle. It bothers me at night, and I have to take two tylenol to get to sleep. Keep ya posted

Day 14...i think.

So today is about two weeks. The burning, tingling, and tenderness are essentially gone! Yay! I still have itching periodically, but nothing major. I don't feel like I see any results at all, but my Mom swears she does. Its only two weeks, so I don't expect to see anything yet. Life is good. Im hoping to see results because Id love to know that it will work on my hips as well. I did read that if you are on prednisone (as I am) that there may not be a result at all...I knew this going into this, but I am one who needs to try it to see for myself. Lets just say, I learn the hard(and expensive) way. :)

Seeing Results

Woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and I see the start of results. I have no more pain at all, and am excited to see that the procedure is working.

Seeing results

I am happy to report that I am seeing some results, the pain is gone and the itching has stopped completely. I still have time to go for more results, so I am eager to see the final results.

Absolutely fantastic!

I just wanted to do my final update. I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome of my cool sculpting on my bra fat. It has been a wonderful experience, with tolerable discomfort. I am so happy I went to VanDyke Laser in Paradise Valley, Az. They are all wonderful people, who do professional work. I will be going back after I pay off my Care Credit bill soon. My tops look so much better on me.
