We have our patients wait
2 months before re-treating the same area. This allows enough time for
the cells to be cleared out. Because we have so much experience with
Coolsculpting, we can tell you before we treat how many times you can expect to
have the treatment performed. None of our patients have had permanent numbness.
All the best,
Nerve damage and Coolsculpting
Thanks for posting your question. I think you should be fine to have the procedure again. Expect a similar recovery, but I would not expect any permanent damage. The nerves can get bruised during the procedure. Everyone heals at a different rate. Good luck, Dr. M
Coolsculpting and Nerve Damage
Id suggest liposuction, you can get a contouring result with much less downtime. If you get coolsculpting again, use oral neurontin to help limit nerve sensitivity. Best, Dr. Emer.
Coolsculpting and re-treatment
Coolsculpting has fabulous results with non-invasive technology. The discomfort for that length of time is much longer than I have ever seen or heard of. I would consult a specialist in Coolsculpting before repeating the procedure. Best, Dr. Green
Do Another CoolSculpting Treatment Or Not?
Hi Jeff. It is definitely unusual to have numbness after CoolSculpting that persists for 6 months. The longest we have had anyone tell us they had numbness was 6 weeks. Even with that, it got progressively better each day and ultimately resolved. There is no predicting whether you will experience the same effects with an additional treatment. What we do know is that in all cases this does completely resolve. I don't think there is a concern for permanent nerve damage. Ultimately, the decision for having another treatment is completely up to you. Hope this helps.
