How to treat pain after CoolSculpting?
The medication that is prescribed to treat neuropathic pain after treating the abdomen with CoolSculpting has different dosing levels and sometimes the dose needs to be increased to improve the pain. I would contact the physician who treated you to let them know about your pain and see if the dose of your medication can be adjusted to help.

Post Treatment Nerve Pain
There are a few ways to help the nerve pain that happens after coolsculpting. Some doctors prescribe a nerve pain medicine called gabapentin. If you are wanting to avoid taking medications there are some things naturally you can do:
1. Rub peppermint and lavender essential oil (5 drops each mixed with 4 oz coconut oil) - on belly
2. There is an OTC product called Topiricin that works well (amazon.com)
3. St. John's wort liquid extract (HerbPharm or Natures Answer) 1 dropper under the tongue every 8 hours works well too. (can buy at any Whole foods store)
Please see you doctor if this pain worsens or continues beyond 6 days.
