1 week ago today I arrived at 0730 for my coolsculpting experience. It was a little more awkward and painful than I expected and I have a high tolerance for pain. I had a total of four areas treated. Inner thighs and back of thighs. $1950.00 total time 5 hours. First inner thigh I had no clue what to expect other than what I read and heard from others. The suction was not bad at all and boy believe me when I say this thing sucks! You will understand what I am saying when the machine is first taken off and you are left with this disgusting red flab between your legs prior to them massaging it back into place! Ew! While the machine is sucking the life out of your fat little thighs (or other area) it freezes the targeted area as well. That is the painful part, not during but after. As the tissue starts to "thaw" IT HURTS! I found myself begging the medical professional to start the next area so I could concentrate on that instead. I had very minimal side effects up through today. So far the only three things I have noticed is numbness, tingling (especially when get out of the shower or pool), and just recently itching at night. Apparently these are all expected for up to two weeks post procedure. I will post something again next week to let you know if any of those have gone away.
I am excited to start seeing results in 4-12 weeks. Most people I have talked to told me they really did not notice the bigger improvements until the 12th week mark. Pre-procedure thigh measurements are 24" on both thighs. Cross your fingers!!!!
