Getting coolsculpting done as I write this. Went with 3 areas love handles and belly (flanks and lower abdomen). First step was changing down to just shorts and before pictures. Then they Mark the areas to be treated. First is my flanks they can to both sides at once so I have 2 machines running at this time. I'm sitting in a medical type exam bed not comfortable or uncomfortable. I leaned to one side then they applied a cold protective gel sheet. The machines suction is on so the technician only had one shot at placement there's no adjusting one it's grabbed on. It feels like a ultra strong vacuum is currently pulling on both sides of me. It doesn't feel cold but there is a mild discomfort which is exacerbated if I move around to much. So basically dont fuss with the vacuum and it's not to bad then. Procedure time is 49 minutes I was told and currently in half way done.

3 week update, coolsculpting

So bruising lasted for probably 2 weeks on my sides but only a few days on the lower abdomen. There's is still persistent numbness in all treated areas but considerably less now then post procedure of course. As an addition to my original post the Z-wave was by far the most painful part of the procedure for me. I'll be posting some pics soon for those interested. I do feel there has been a decrease in size already but was told that results shouldn't be expected for 6 weeks.
