Track Marks Disappear

“Track marks” are sometimes noticeable a few days after CoolSculpting, and typically disappear within a week or two.  To my knowledge and in my experience, there have not been any reports of scarring associated with this transient side effect.  Mineral makeup may be used to conceal the marks until they resolve.

Normal reaction- will subside

This is entirely normal if higher settings are used, or if the needle is very superficial. I warn all my patients that this is expected. The use of a moisturiser, together with gentle exfoliation at day 5-7 can help. As Dr Weiner says, this settles within 2 weeks in type 1-2 skin, a little longer in darker skin types. I have not seen permanent damage with INFINI. All the best, Dr Davin Lim.

When using the higher settings protocols, this can be seen. This will not lead to long term scarring. I've never seen that happen. This should subside in about 2 weeks.

This can occur rarely, but will subside in time. It may take up to 2 weeks for these tracts to subside. Some individuals have more sensitive skin and will react differently than most. This is not permanent and sometimes a topical steroid will help.
