Jennifer Yount is a Licensed Medical Aesthetician at Hull Dermatology and Aesthetics. She shares her personal experience with Coolsculpting, a nonsurgical procedure designed to reduce body fat.
“Coolsculpting was one of the treatments I was most excited to try here at Hull Aesthetics. I had seen some incredible before and after photos and I was excited to experience the same results too.
Although there were a few areas that bothered me the most, it was very helpful to have a full consult to really see the potential of what coolsculpting could do for me. I understood more about creating a more appealing sculptured physique and not just focusing on one area.
When I first started my treatment I decided to do the back flank area first. I never had this area of fat before I had my child and I was anxious to get rid of it!
When the first applicator was attached, I did feel a strong pinching sensation and then a cooling but that only lasted about 10 minutes. After that, the area was numb and I was able to rest, check email, and listen to music. When the applicator was removed I felt a mild stinging sensation and then a soreness in the area.
I went about my day as usual but I noticed if I bumped or touched the area it felt sore. The other thing I noticed was at night when I rested in bed, if I turned on that area it felt sore. I saw results at about 4 weeks but really noticed at about 6 weeks.
The next area I addressed was the abdomen. This area was more tender and I decided to invest in a light compression garment to keep pressure on the area. I needed a little Ibuprofen at times to manage some discomfort but all in all very manageable and NOT surgery!
When I returned to re-treat the areas again my discomfort was greatly minimized.
