Hi Cierra and very sorry to hear about your issues after coolsculpting. It seems as if you might have developed a superficial neuralgia so I would suggest that you return to see the doctor who did the initial treatment so make a game plan. Best of luck.

Late onset pain

You may be experiencing late onset pain that happens 3-4 days after a CoolSculpting treatment. Contact your physician where you had the treatment to get a prescription to help with the pain. It will go away eventually but the prescription will definitely make your daily activities more tolerable. Patients that have late onset pain are early responders and see results sooner than others. No procedure is painless but there are ways to make you feel better. Hang on in there!
