Immediately after Coolsculpting treatment, massage is very important. It helps break down the fat cells and improves your results by 60 percent.
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.

Zeltiq and Massage
Massage is a very important part of the Zeltiq procedure. The Zeltiq company confirmed that massage post-treatment is essential for the best results. I am unsure why they did not massage the treated areas. For the best results please seek out a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience in cool sculpting.
