Coolsculpting results typically are observed in 4 or more months. You do not need compression garments after Coolsculpting treatment. If you are having pain after the procedure, you may benefit from oral pain meds like Neurotin. A treatment plan with how many treatments you may need is always discussed before treatment. Best, Dr. Green
The areas could be sensitive for a week or so but will go away eventually. Garments are not necessary but some compression may feel comforting. You could stop using them anytime that you want to.

Numbness and pain following CoolSculpting
Thanks for sharing your photos! You look great and will improve with this non-invasive localized fat reducing option called CoolSculpting (CS). These photos appear to have been taken just following your CS procedure.
The freezing technique of CS produces apoptosis causing fat cell death but also cools the nerves creating "dysesthesia" or the various sensations of numbness and discomfort. The redness, swelling and partial discomfort are due to the mechanical inflammation from the suction applicator and massage but this response may also create some retraction in the skin.
You may desire to use tylenol for the discomfort. Massage is also helpful for dysesthesias. It is thought that aspirin, ibuprofen, naprosyn and other similar anti-inflammatories may reduce the optimal response of the CS procedure. Use these medications only if necessary.
You can expect discomfort with any similar and future treatments but I would not expect you to have more pain.
Keep up the good work! All the best!
