CoolSculpting is a non-surgical treatment, there is no recovery time required following the procedure. Patients may resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment. However some people may experience mild burning sensations, tenderness or swelling which can make some exercises less comfortable than usual. Use your best judgement and make sure you are safe. You can always contact your provider if have any concerns or further questions.
How soon after Coolsculpting can you get back to the gym and what exercises to avoid doing?

Coolsculpting is a non-surgical treatment and requires no recovery time. You may resume your normal activities immediately after receiving Coolsculpting. Some patients might experience some swelling, tenderness and burning sensations. This may make exercising very uncomfortable. Please consult your physician.

Downtime and coolsculpting
In regards to coolsculpting and “downtime”, there are no restrictions mandated by the manufacture of the device. With doing this non-invasive treatment, there has been no recovery time, or downtime noted per patient response. I find that recovery time is based on the treated individual and their comfort level. Majority of patients go back to their normal scheduled daily activities right away after treatment.
