CoolSculpting Aftercare at Pulse Light Clinic London
Please come in well fed before treatment, let us know if you feel light headed, dehydrated or in need of food at any point during the treatment, we will also provide lunch if you are receiving treatment for more than 3 hours.
Drink plenty of water before and after the procedure.
Please bring spare comfortable clothing and underwear to change into after the procedure especially if we are doing core areas of the body as we use sticky gel pads that can get on your clothes during the procedure and be washed off easily later.
Many patients have minimal discomfort following the procedure, however you may experience one or more of the following sensations: deep itching, tingling, numbness, tenderness to the touch, strong cramping, nausea, bloating, diarrhoea, muscle spasms, aching and/ or soreness.
Using Ibugel and Arnica gel can help with bruising and soreness post treatment.
When treating the flanks and abdomen, we strongly recommend that you use compression garments to help ease any pain for up to 3 weeks after treatment.
You may need to wear larger clothes for a few weeks if the area swells post treatment especially if we are using our Plus size applicators on the abdomen area. Swelling usually means good results and should subside within a few weeks.
You can use painkillers such as paracetamol if in pain post treatment, please contact us and we may suggest stronger pain killers when needed.
If any of these symptoms persist or Our in-house Doctor Gilbert is available for Coolsculpt clients to provide prescription where she feels necessary.
Please remember to call and book your review for 8 weeks if you already know you will want a second session or 12 weeks if you would like to wait for the full effect before deciding whether to retreat (or if you’re treating outer thigh).
We do recommend daily massaging of the treatment area, lymphatic massages and increasing exercise to boost your lymphatic system post treatment, this has been found to assist with Coolsculpting results. Try and massage the area a few minutes a day until your review (8 weeks) as a minimum.
Remember results vary from person to person and for each area, the average reduction is 20% per session. We can retreat as many times as you wish as long as the area contains pinchable fat tissue.
We are always on hand to help you, please call your Practitioner or Senior Consultants Lucy/Maelle/Vera/Erika/Cherrie if you need more assistance.
