I scheduled a Coolsculpting treatment for my abdomen but got sick the week before the appt. During the time that the applicator was on my abdomen, I coughed hard a few times. Each time I coughed, the skin fold in the applicator retracted and then was sucked back into the applicator. The applicator itself didn't come off, but I clearly disrupted the tissues being treated and contact with the cooling plates was momentarily reduced with each cough. Will this affect my treatment results?
Does coughing during Coolsculpting (causing skin fold in applicator to retract) affect treatment results?

Coolsculpting and coughing
CoolSculpting is a great procedure for the abdomen, flanks, thighs, and other bulges that diet and exercise does not help. As long as the seal was not broken during the treatment (an alarm would be triggered in the machine), then the treatment would still be effective.
No harm done
It's very important to go to a top CoolSculpting Complete provider. Top providers are able to offer buy one area, get a second area free.
Coughing During Sacramento CoolSculpting - Problem?
I understand the concern about coughing during a CoolSculpting session. As long as the seal is not broken, known as a pop-off, coughing during the treatment will not affect your overall result.

Coughing during a CoolSculpting treatment to the abdomen can sometimes cause a little discomfort but it should not affect your ultimate results. Laughing during the treatment can also cause the same discomfort but should not affect results.
