If you have unwanted bulges along the tummy or thighs you’ve worked hard to tone up at the gym but haven’t had much luck, CoolSculpting might be the nonsurgical solution you need. Like all good things however, there can be side effects after a Coolsculpting Treatment so it’s always a good idea to learn about more.

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting is a non-surgical procedure that freezes away fat cells to help give a smooth, toned appearance, especially around trouble areas along the stomach, waist and buttock area. An applicator will be placed on the area of concern and will suck the skin almost like a vacuum while actively cooling the area. The treatment takes 35 minutes and patients often just relax or chill out with their phones.


Is CoolSculpting worthy of your investment? Here are the pros and cons to consider:


There are many excellent reasons why people choose CoolSculpting over any other procedures claiming to offer similar results.

Here are some most common benefits:

  • CoolSculpting can be done at a medical spa: Instead of having to go to the hospital, you can easily have this procedure done in the comfort of Forever Slender MedSpa during your lunch break.
  • It’s not painful: You might feel a sucking sensation when the treatment begins along with feeling cold in the area of concentration but the overall treatment does not hurt.
  • There is no downtime: You can get this procedure done and go right back to work the same day. You don’t have to worry about taking it easy or about changing bandages.
  • The results are impressive: You’ll see results a few weeks after your treatment(s) which will last as long as you continue with a healthy diet and exercise regimen.


While CoolSculpting is an excellent choice for many who want to look and feel their best without undergoing surgery, there are other considerations as it is not a treatment for the severely overweight.

This treatment is for those needing help with unwanted bulges in problem areas they have not been able to eliminate on their own with diet and exercise.

Common Side Effects

There are also some side effects to consider before you undergo any CoolSculpting treatments. Redness, swelling, bruising and a reduced sensation in the targeted area are among the few common side effects some people have endured after treatment.

While these side effects can be bothersome but temporary and won’t stop you from going about your day-to-day routine. CoolSculpting does not harm skin cells or muscle tissues since it simply freezes, kills and ultimately eliminates unwanted fat cells.

Extreme Side Effects

The common side effects are those most frequently endured after CoolSculpting procedures, but on occasion people experienced the following more severe problems:

  • Extreme pain around the treated area
  • Severe skin numbing
  • Bloating along the contact area


How Long Will Side Effects Last?

The common side effects of redness, bruising and swelling can occur right after the treatment and last for a day or a couple of weeks. Usually these side effects are not permanent and don’t last long, but if you find that you’re experiencing these problems for a longer period of time, please give us a call! The more severe side effects generally only last a few days but they can be also last for much longer and should be checked out if the problems still persist a few days after the initial treatment.

The Forever Slender team will go over all the potential side effects after CoolSculpting as well as the proper precautions to ensure the best results without aggravated extreme side effects.

Importance of a Good Consultation

You should always get a proper consultation with a trained professional to learn more how the treatment works, the results you can expect and the potential side effects you may endure.

A proper consultation will allow you to help determine how many sessions you will need and how well the procedure will work on your given skin type and muscle mass. Be sure to work with a skilled CoolSculpting team so you get the best results possible.
